The popular Galaxy S2 has recently been joined by its new stablemate the Galaxy S3 which is the company’s latest flagship Android phone. The Galaxy S2 is famous for the quality for its touchscreen, and in this article I will see how its successor measures up in this department.
One of the first things you will notice if you hold these phones side by side is the size difference. The Samsung Galaxy S3 is much larger than its predecessor due largely to the screen. At 4.8 inches, it is a full half inch bigger than that of the Galaxy S2. This increase in size was expected by many as the competition from the likes of HTC and LG included much larger screens their respective previous flagship models. Of course there are plenty of benefits to having a larger screen, especially if you use your mobile phone for multimedia tasks such as watching videos, playing games or browsing the web.
The Samsung Galaxy S2 is renowned for the quality of its S-AMOLED Plus capacitive touchscreen, which offers many benefits such as excellent colour saturation, wide viewing angles and high levels of detail and clarity of its on screen imagery. This technology has also been adopted by the Samsung Galaxy S3; however it also has the added bonus of a much higher resolution of 720x 1280 compared to the 480x 800 of its predecessor. This adds to the multimedia credentials of the handset, as high definition videos can be played in all their glory on the large screen. The commonly used Corning Gorilla glass is also included, which prevents the screen from being accidentally scratched when it is dropped or carried in a pocket or bag with items like keys which could potentially harm the screen. samsung galaxy s21 5g
Essentially the Samsung Galaxy S3 builds upon the winning formula of the Galaxy S2, especially in terms of its screen. There are plenty of other features which make this an appealing handset though. Samsung’s most innovative interface (TouchWiz) to date, based on Android’s new ‘Ice Cream Sandwich’ version, offers lots of new features like S-Voice (a Siri-like voice activated personal assistant), and even SmartEye tracking. The latter uses the phone’s front facing camera to track the movements of your eyes so the screen does not lock when you are looking at it.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 is arguably the most advanced smartphone currently on the market, and the screen plays a large part of the handset’s appeal. It is likely that the handset will enjoy similar levels of popularity as its predecessor which has to date, sold over 40 million units worldwide.
