The Next Galaxy Chatter and Predictions :D - Page 2

post #11 of 14
I want one bad but it will never come to Verizon and I'm grandfathered into the unlimited plan. I don't think I can live with my OG Droid any longer. Probably just get a Nexus and be done with it. Why doesn't Verizon get the fun toys? sigh

I think the S3 will have:
720x1280 SAMOLED pentile screen
8mp camera that can do 1080p
quad core at 1.2ghz-1.5ghz
1gb ram
16gb memory
Run touchwiz ICS
Battery will be something around 1800mah.
Nothing too great from this phone. Nothing revolutionary at least.

Fair enough, personally though I've found that ~4.5" is a good size in my hand. I've played with the note and it's just too big. It just feels odd holding it your ear, not really comfortable. For the record I have neither the largest hands nor the smallest, but of course that will play a big factor in what size feels right for you.

Ah, forgot about pentile. Would hope that its full RGB.

How come you're not expecting big things from this phone? Wouldn't surprise me if Samsung have something up their sleeve, maybe not everything on my wish list (or those still hoping for 1080x1920 screens tongue.gif ), but I reckon there'll be something worthwhile in this phone. Else Samsung will have really messed up, what with the HTC One X out already, the Evo 4G LTE out soon and the iPhone 5 around the corner.

Pentile because I think we are a little while off from seeing anything like a plus screen at that resolution our even things like 1080p. Such a high resolution screen uses a ton of battery and probably costs a lot.

Quad vote is nothing special because there's nothing to take advantage of it.

Edit: just looked at the specs and like I said it's nothing special.

I'm very disappointed by this:

- Design is awful - this is the ugliest mainstream smartphone I've seen in years
- Nature UX looks worse than TouchWiz 4.0, has a stupid name
- The new features seem to be complete gimmicks that would never be useful
- It's ugly
- It "tracks your every move", "follows you around", and "waits until you sleep"

Those are the bad points, and there aren't really many good ones. It has lots of storage, and we'll have to wait and see about the Exynos Quad to see if it outperforms the Tegra 3 and Snapdragon S4. It has a big battery, but that doesn't mean anything if it turns out that the SoC is super power hungry.

The rear camera is probably going to be just a little better than the S2's, with zero shutter lag, and nobody uses the front camera anyway. Connectivity hasn't added anything from other phones besides Bluetooth 4.0 which hasn't been seen a lot before.

But at the end of the day, a lot of people will take one look at this phone and decide that it's too ugly to buy.

As Josh Topolsky said like 15 minutes ago on The Vergecast, I honestly have no desire to own this device.
