Samsung Galaxy S3 - Page 58

post #571 of 2113
I can't wait for the new phones to start using the new Adreno 320. It seems Adreno 320 will be a big jump from Adreno 225.

Update on the screen tint issue: A very nice/helpful Verizon employee took a look at the phone and agreed with me. She had to order a replacement (32GBP)but it will be here on Tuesday (the one I have is considered DOA so they'll ship the replacement to the store and swap it out then). It was a generally pleasant experience! I'm crossing my fingers for the next screen.

Also, I just want to express my awe at how much faster 4g is than 3g. When I first activated the S3 and hadn't set uo WiFi yet, my Google account started syncing apps from my tablet and downloaded 200 MB before I realized what it was doing. It's faster than my damned DSL...

Yup. I love 4g. I have dsl too. But I still use Wi-Fi sometimes for data conservation.

Coming from the 4s LCD screen, I have to say the AMOLED sub-pixel layout is definitely visible. It seems to make small text a bit of a chore to read as compared to the 4s display and is most distracting in white areas of the browser. If this Pentile technology in this screen is this noticeable to me, I think a phone with a Pentile display at any lower resolution would be a no-go for me. All technological limitations aside, the screen is gorgeous; I love the color saturation and contrast, even though I definitely wouldn't like it for my monitor.

EDIT: I might as well add one more complaint. rolleyes.gif Has anyone else experienced relatively slow charging times? I think it charges at around half the rate that my iPhone did with with both stock chargers, respectively.

I love how some of you are damning ADSL for being slow, hahahaha. In Gibraltar ADSL was introduced in 2003 or so (before that I used 56k), with a blazing 256 kbps download and 128 kbps upload service. The fastest was 512 kbps download (same upload). This month I'm on 8 Mbps download and 512 kbps upload but that's it. The top service is 20 Mbps download and a tiny 768 kbps upload, which costs £84 (GBP!) a month!!
Fibre optic services don't exist.

The UK's best ADSL services are better than the best fibre optic services as well in my experience. There, you can get up to 100 Mbps download fibre optic service but your upload is subject to massive contention, which kills your connection in peak times. Then there's the throttling once you download a certain amount in the month...
The best I could find in the UK and what I had over there was ADSL2+ service from BE Online for up to 24 Mbps download (I got 16 Mbps due to distance) and 2 Mbps upload with no slowing down or throttling for £22.44 a month, plus the phone line for £12.50 a month from a different company.

So yeah, I have tremendous respect for good ADSL services as I've never experienced anything better! tongue.gif

My charge time is about 2 hours. That's not slow...


First charge is long (about 4 hours) but yeah charge times aren't not a problem and I don't get any issues with reading small text.

This phone is in every way possible, better than the iPhone 4S.

Dare you to convince an Apple fanboy of that! tongue.gif
A friend of mine is "an extremist" Apple fanboy. He considers the idea of buying something not made by Apple, sacrilege. Worse for him I guess, it's his money! tongue.gif
When he saw my Samsung Galaxy S3 in his hands and played around with it, he couldn't believe it and then he got pissed off. He got pissed off at Apple for being "slow on the uptake". Why not just buy a Samsung Galaxy S3 rather than wait for the sixth coming of Jesus (iPhone 5)?

Has anyone been able to set up an Exchange Activesync account with their S III? I get through the entire process but the mail never actually syncs to my phone. Looking on the outlook webapp on my pc, I see the entry for new access, but it doesn't actually sync. This is a screenie of the two devices that I have successfully synced (iphone in middle and HP touchpad running cm 9 4.0.4 on left) with the S III on the right. That is from the mobile logs in the outlook we app. Any ideas? I don't want something stupid like this to be a deal-breaker, but it is my school email.

Mine functions, but it's for Outlook at work. If it's anything like my work, you need to set a lot of security options up, so perhaps that's the problem? I'm assuming, of course, that you have sync set up properly and enabled.
