Smashing Samsung’s Galaxy S3 during review

 

By Posted 27 May 2012, 09:05

When we get a product for review it’s great to test to the limits, although we’re also very careful to make sure we look after these devices, especially when they’re something that looks beautiful from a gadget perspective. This is completely where some reviewers disagree and has been seen with a Samsung Galaxy S3 review, which the video author wants to have a smashing good time.

The last thing on our mind would be to smash up the new Galaxy S3 smartphone, although this is what you can see in the “crash test” shown during the video below. Most of these tests are worthwhile if you like to know what happens when you drop your device on the floor from a height, although this video shows a Galaxy S3 getting bashed with a power plug, and while we find it hard to see when this might happen in the real world, it’s worth a watch if you have hit your display hard before.

Our readers that have a good eye will notice this is the Pebble Blue Samsung Galaxy S III – the review was performed in Italy, so this shows another country with the Blue variety available. You might have seen a number of news reports stating there are problems getting this color, although we’d love to know if you have a color preference if you are in fact thinking of buying the Galaxy S3?

Later this year it will be interesting to see how the Galaxy S3 vs. iPhone 5 reviews wrap up, of course until Apple reveal specs it will be compared on a rumor level only, although some people will make their minds up already based on the choice of iOS or Android.

Are you waiting for a Galaxy S3 release date in your country? If you live in Canada you’ll be pleased to know that rumors point to a June 20 launch, which should be on Virgin Mobile, TELUS, Rogers, and Bell. Those of you in the United States should expect the Galaxy S3 a little later than this, although we’d love to know your network preference between AT&T and Verizon?

    I own the GALAXY NEXUS on Verizon and YES it SUCKS. I can’t wait to leave Verizon come July. The network is SHADY at best, poor updates, poor dBm signal, and very poor communication from the carrier. Clearly the WORST OVERALL EXPERIENCE EVER. I will join Tmobile purchase the new GALAXY S3 then wait till November to purchase a new NEXUS with 5.0 jellybean and be happy. The CDMA HALAXY NEXUS on Verizon will never be supported properly by Verizon thats plainly clear. It launched December 15th with 4.0.2 ics and still has that same 4.0.2 it has never updated to fix all the problems with dropping signal and poor LTE. Enough is enough.

    im getting one of these when it comes out to Canada, it will help considering im a roofer, and granular gets into my case, and scratches the screen.  it looks like its better then the htc sensation, and that phone ticks me off.
