Other Talk time: Up to 8 hours Standby time: Up to approx. 9.4 days Website [4] www.apple.com/iphone The iPhone 5 is a touchscreen-based smartphone developed by Apple Inc, the sixth generation of the iPhone. It was announced on September 12, 2012,[5][6] and was released on September 21. It has a larger 4-inch screen and a smaller eight-pin dock connector than its predecessor, and is lighter, thinner, and contains the Apple A6 processor.[7] It is the first iPhone that supports LTE or has a screen with a 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio. The reception to the iPhone was primarily positive as many reviewers praised the hardware improvements such as the larger[8] and higher resolution screen and improved internal components. However, many negatively received the new Maps application as it is reported to contain many serious errors. Additionally, the Swiss Federal Railways have accused Apple of copying without permission its iconic Swiss railway clock design for the iOS 6 operating system used by the iPhone.[9][10] History Speculation about the iPhone 5 and its specifications arose shortly after the announcement of the iPhone 4S. However, detailed rumours and leaks did not emerge until June 2012.[11] As early as July 30, 2012, reports pinpointed the exact date of unveiling and release of the phone along with probable features.[12] On September 4, 2012, Apple invited the media to an event scheduled for September 12, 2012, at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San The iPhone 5 was announced at the Yerba Buena Francisco. Many sources speculated that this would be related to the Center for the Arts on September 12, 2012. next iPhone due to a shadow of the number 5 that featured in the design of the invitations.[13] Apple subsequently announced a number of new products including the iPhone 5, iPod Nano (7th generation), and iPod Touch (5th generation) at the same event.[5] The phone was available for pre-order on September 14, 2012.
  5. 5. iPhone 5 3 A few days after the iPhone 5 was announced over two million orders had been taken.[2] Date Released [14] [14] September 21, 2012 September 28, 2012 Australia Austria Canada Belgium France Czech Republic Germany Denmark Hong Kong Estonia Japan Finland Singapore Hungary United Kingdom Ireland United States Italy Liechtenstein Lithuania Luxembourg Netherlands New Zealand Norway Poland Portugal Slovakia Slovenia Spain Sweden Switzerland Features Software The iPhone 5 uses iOS, Apples mobile operating system.[15] The user interface of iOS is based on the concept of direct manipulation, using multi-touch gestures. Interface control elements consist of sliders, switches, and buttons. The response to user input is immediate and provides a fluid interface.[16] Interaction with the OS includes gestures such as swipe, tap, pinch, and reverse pinch, all of which have specific definitions within the context of the iOS operating system and its multi-touch interface. Internal accelerometers are used by some applications to respond to shaking the device (one common result is the undo command) or rotating it vertically (one common result is switching from portrait to landscape mode).[16] The 5 uses iOS 6, which was released on September 19, 2012.[15] It can act as a hotspot, sharing its internet connection over WiFi, Bluetooth, or USB,[17] and also accesses the App Store, a digital application distribution platform for iOS developed and maintained by Apple. The service allows users to browse and download applications from the iTunes Store that were developed with Xcode and the iOS SDK and were published through Apple. Many of the iPhone 5s features that work specifically with the included new iOS 6.0 operating system, will only work in certain territories on release.[18] Apple has said this is a rolling program, which will take longer to implement across more regions.[19] The iPhone 5 can play music, movies, television shows, ebooks, audiobooks, and podcasts and can sort its media library by songs, artists, albums, videos, playlists, genres, composers, podcasts, audiobooks, and compilations. Options are always presented alphabetically, except in playlists, which retain their order from iTunes.[20] The iPhone uses a large font that allows users plenty of room to touch their selection. Users can rotate their device horizontally to landscape mode to access Cover Flow. Like on iTunes, this feature shows the different album covers in a scroll-through photo library. Scrolling is achieved by swiping a finger across the screen. Alternatively, headset
  6. 6. iPhone 5 4 controls can be used to pause, play, skip, and repeat tracks. On the 5, the volume can be changed with the included Apple Earphones, and the Voice Control feature can be used to identify a track, play songs in a playlist or by a specific artist, or create a Genius playlist.[20] The iPhone 5 has a voice control system called "Siri",[20] that allows the user to operate the iPhone by spoken commands. For example, "What is the weather going to be like?" will generate a spoken response like "The weather is to be cloudy and rainy and drop to 54 degrees today". Application software cannot respond to voice commands, for security reasons. The commands given do not have to be formulated using rigidly determined wording; natural language can be used. Siri is accessed by holding down rather than tapping the home button. On the iPhone 5, texting can be aided by the voice assistant, which converts speech to text.[20] In addition to regular texting, messaging on the iPhone 5 is supported by iMessage, a specialized instant messaging program and service that allows unlimited texting to other Apple devices running iOS 5 and 6. This supports the inclusion of content such as images and sound in text messages, integration with the devices voice-controlled software assistant, and read acknowledgements for sent messages. Input to the device comes from a keyboard displayed on the multi-touch screen or by voice-to text by speaking into the microphone. Entered text is supported by predictive and suggestion software; there is a multi-language spell-checker which recognises many regional accents of different languages.[20] The built-in Maps app uses Apple’s new vector-based engine that eliminates lag, making for smoother zooming. New to Maps is turn-by-turn navigation spoken directions, 3D views in some major cities and real-time traffic.[21] Turn-by-turn navigation is only available for iPhone 4S or later and iPad 2 or later with cellular capability, while 3D views are only available for iPhone 4S or later, iPod touch 5th generation, and iPad 2 or later.[22] iOS 6 brings the retrieval of documents such as boarding passes, admission tickets, coupons and loyalty cards through its new Passbook app. An iOS device with Passbook can be scanned under a reader to process a mobile payment at participating locations. The app has context-aware features such as notifications for relevant coupons when in the immediate vicinity of a given store.[21][23] Apple’s Siri intelligent personal assistant was improved to include the ability to make restaurant reservations, launch apps, dictate Facebook or Twitter updates, retrieve movie reviews and detailed sports statistics.[21] Facebook comes integrated through Apple’s native apps with iOS 6. Facebook features can be directly accessed from within native apps such as Calendar which can sync Facebook events, or use Facebook’s like button from within the Apple App Store.[21] New privacy settings are available to the user. In addition to location services, the following have been added in iOS 6: photos (already partially restricted in iOS 5), contacts (address book), calendars, reminders, bluetooth sharing, Twitter, Facebook, and Sina Weibo. iOS 6 also comes with a “Limit ad tracking” user control in the general settings menu to allow users the option to prevent targeted advertising. Apple’s Advertising Identifier replaces the company’s existing UDID standard. Advertising networks not yet using Apple’s Advertising Identifier device identifier standard would not be affected although Apple will require the standard in the future.[24]
  7. 7. iPhone 5 5 Hardware The iPhone 5 features an improved system on chip (SOC), called the Apple A6, which Apple says achieves twice the performance of the A5.[7][25] The camera has improved low-light performance, and is 40% faster than its predecessors. The front (FaceTime) camera has a higher resolution, at 1.2 megapixels. The rechargeable lithium-ion polymer battery is built in and cannot be replaced by the user; it is rated at 225 hours of standby time and 8 hours of talk time. The display is 1,136 × 640 pixels with an aspect ratio of almost exactly 16:9. With a diagonal of 4" it has a display size of 1.96 square inches, compared to 1.94 in iPhone 4 and 4S. Apples A6 chip is 22% smaller than the The iPhone 5s operating memory (LPDDR2-1066 eDRAM) was doubled, A5 and consumes less power. from 512 MB to 1 GB. Storage capacities available are fixed at 16, 32 or 64 GB, the same as as the 4S; plug-in expansion memory is not supported. The two color options are black (with black glass and slate-colored metal trim), and white (with white glass and silver-colored metal trim); again the same color options (though differently implemented) as its predecessor the 4S had.[26] The phone takes a nano-SIM, smaller than the micro-SIM of the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S.[27] All versions of the iPhone 5 are 18% thinner, 20% lighter, and have 12% less overall volume than its predecessor, the iPhone 4S. The phones aluminum body is 0.30 in (7.6 mm) thick. The iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S had stainless steel instead of aluminium due to Steve Jobs preference for the metal which he claims, "looks beautiful when it wears".[28][29] Apple claims it is the thinnest smartphone in the world at 7.6 mm, though that claim has been disputed as the Oppo Finder is thinner and some other smartphones can be considered to be thinner, depending upon where thickness is measured. The Oppo Finder measures 6.65 mm at its thinnest point and 7.1 mm at its thickest point making it overall thinner than the iPhone.[30][31][32][33] The iPhone 5 features a four-inch screen with a resolution of 1136 x 640 pixels. The pixel density remains the same as the 4S model, which is 326 pixels per inch. Now, the matrix icons appear as a column 4 of 6 icons, including those located at the bottom. This gives an extra row of icons on the desktop. In-cell touch sensor technology from Sharp allows the screen to be thinner, allowing for a thinner phone. The screens color saturation is 44% greater than its predecessor.[34] While not included in Apples press conference announcement on September 12, 2012, there are actually three separate models of the phone available: one supporting CDMA and two GSM versions that differ only by the LTE bands they support.[35] This can have knock-on effects for which version of the device will actually work in which countries/regions. Apple Lightning Connector The iPhone 5, as well as the iPod Touch (5th generation), and iPod Nano (7th generation), feature a new dock connector named Lightning, Apple Lightning connector which replaces the 30-pin Apple Dock connector introduced in 2003 by Apple on the iPod (3rd generation). The Apple Lightning connector has eight pins and all signaling is digital. This new connector is smaller than the previous one, helping the iPhone 5 to be slimmer than its predecessors. Apple Lightning cables have duplicate pins on two sides of each plug, so it can be inserted either way round. Various accessories will be available to convert the Apple Lightning connector to the
  8. 8. iPhone 5 6 older 30-pin Apple Dock connector or USB,[36] although not all old accessories will work, as not all signals are available, in particular video output and the iPod Out feature for BMW automobiles.[37][38][39] Reception Critical reception The iPhone 5 received favorable reviews from commentators and reviewers. Tim Stevens from Engadget praised the iPhone 5 for its high resolution screen as it surpasses the screen of the iPhone 4S which he says is already one of the best phone screens available on the market. Stevens however was critical of the introduction of the new dock connector, which is not compatible with numerous gadgets that use the connector and cable supplied with the iPad and previous generation iPhones. The review also states that Apple fulfills most of the promises that were stated on their website such as "better battery performance", "two times the graphics performance" and "two times faster."[8] David Pogue of The New York Times called the 4-inch Retina display a "nice but not life-changing change", and praised the Lighting connector for its size, sturdiness, and reversibility, but criticized it because of its lack of support for older accessories. He added "Apple has a long history of killing off technologies, inconveniently and expensively, that the public had come to love—even those that Apple had originally developed and promoted. Somehow, life goes on, and Apple gets even bigger."[40] Many reviewers and commentators were critical of the new Maps app released with iOS 6 as it is reported to contain many errors such as the misplacing of landmark tags, directing users to incorrect locations and poor satellite images.[41] The application itself is also reported to be difficult to use.[42][43] Additionally, the Swiss Federal Railways have accused Apple of copying without permission its iconic Swiss railway clock design for one of the iOS 6s new features, an integrated clock function.[9][10] "People have always had lofty expectations for the iPhone 5, especially as the competition stiffens. In delivering a fast, attractive, LTE-capable and larger-screen handset, Apple has met those expectations with a gem," writes Ed Baig of USA Today.[44] Commercial reception JP Morgans chief economist, Michael Ferol said that "sales of iPhone 5 could boost annualized U.S. GDP growth by $3.2 billion, or $12.8 billion at an annual rate."[45] Techcrunch reported that the iPhone 5 sold out twenty times faster than the 4 and 4S models. Apple said that they were "blown away by the customer response".[46] Phil Schiller, Apples vice-president of worldwide marketing, said that over two million iPhone 5 orders had been received in the first 24 hours.[47] AT&T said that the iPhone 5 was the fastest-selling iPhone the company had ever offered.[48] LTE reception and usability AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint will offer LTE access in the US,[49] while in the UK, only Everything Everywhere (EE) will be able to offer LTE access.[50] All carriers in Canada selling the iPhone 5 have their own LTE networks which include Rogers Wireless, Fido Solutions, Bell Mobility, Virgin Mobile Canada and Telus Mobility.[51] The only carrier with no LTE network is Koodo however testing of its prospective network is currently underway.[52] 42 officially recognized bands exist for LTE, however rollouts are coalescing around the more-popular bands by region, based on what historically has been made available. In Europe, that means 2.6 GHz (the 3G-expansion band) and 800 MHz (cleared of analogue TV), with 1,800 MHz appearing in a few places including the UK. In Germany only T-Mobile network with LTE 1.8 GHz band will be supported and will not work in the whole country.[53][54] Some countries in Europe — including Denmark, Norway, Switzerland, and others — will not be able to offer iPhone 5 LTE connectivity to their customers on their current LTE networks, as they have already deployed LTE in
  9. 9. iPhone 5 7 the 2.6 GHz band, which the iPhone 5 does not support.[55] Unlike the iPhone 4S, which was the only "world phone" produced by Apple, there are three versions of the iPhone 5 with regard to frequency and technology use. All three work on 2G GSM/GPRS and 3G UMTS/EDGE networks on both the 800 and 1900MHz bands used in the Americas, and the 900 and 1800MHz bands used elsewhere. One version also works on CDMA networks, such as Sprint and Verizon. Another has LTE only on the 2100MHz AWS band, and the 700MHz band recovered after the forced conversion to digital television in the United States (channels 52 to 56), and so LTE is only usable on AT&T. A third works on several other LTE bands in other countries.

  13. 13. Samsung Galaxy S III 11 Website [9] Samsung.com/global/galaxys3/ The Samsung Galaxy S III is a smartphone designed, developed, and marketed by Samsung Electronics. Like its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy S II, the S III is a touchscreen-based, slate-format Android smartphone, with additional software features, expanded hardware, and a redesigned physique. It employs an intelligent personal assistant (S Voice), eye-tracking ability, increased storage, and a wireless charging option. Depending on country, the 4.8-inch (120 mm) smartphone comes with different processors and RAM capacity, and 4G LTE support.[10] The S III was launched with Android version 4.0, "Ice Cream Sandwich", and will be upgraded to version 4.1, "Jelly Bean", in the fourth quarter of 2012. Following an eighteen-month development phase, Samsung unveiled the S III on 3 May 2012 in London.[11] The device was released in 28 European and Middle Eastern countries on 29 May 2012, before being progressively released in other major markets in June 2012. Prior to release, 9 million pre-orders were placed by more than 100 carriers globally.[12] The S III was released by approximately 300 carriers in nearly 150 countries at the end of July 2012.[6] More than 20 million units of the S III were shipped within the first 100 days of release.[7] Due to overwhelming demand and a manufacturing flaw in the blue version of the phone,[13] there was an extensive shortage of the S III, especially in the United States. Nevertheless, the S III was well-received commercially and critically, with some technology commentators touting it as the "iPhone killer".[14] The S III played a major role in boosting Samsungs record operating profit during the second quarter of 2012.[15] As of September 2012, the Galaxy S III is a subject of a high-profile lawsuit between Samsung and Apple. History Design phase Design work on the S III started in late 2010 under the supervision of Chang Dong-hoon, Samsungs Vice President and Head of the Design Group of Samsung Electronics. From the start, the design group concentrated on a trend which Samsung dubs "organic", which suggests that a prospective design should reflect natural elements such as the flow of water and wind.[16] Some of the results of this design were the curved outline of the phone and its home screens "Water Lux" effect, where taps and slides produce water ripples.[16] Throughout the eighteen-month design process, Samsung implemented stringent security measures and procedures to maintain secrecy of the eventual design until its launch. Designers worked on three prototypes concurrently while regarding each of them as the final product. Doing so required a constant duplication of effort as they had to repeat the same process for all three prototypes.[17][18] The prototypes, taking photos of which were forbidden, were locked in a separate lab accessible only by core designers; the companys employees transported them instead of third-party couriers.[18][19] "Because we were only permitted to see the products and others werent," explained Principal Engineer Lee Byung-Joon, "we couldnt send pictures or drawings. We had to explain the Galaxy S III with all sorts of words."[20] Despite such security measures, specifications of one of the three units were leaked by Vietnamese website Tinhte, although it was not the selected design.[21][22] Speculation in the general public and media outlets regarding the handsets specifications began gathering momentum several months before its formal unveiling in May 2012. In February 2012, prior to the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, there were rumours that the handset would incorporate a 1.5 GHz quad-core processor, a display of 1080p (1,920×1,080 pixels) resolution, a 12-megapixel rear camera and a HD Super AMOLED Plus touchscreen.[23][24] More accurate rumoured specifications included 2 GB of RAM, 64 GB of internal storage, 4G LTE, a 4.8-inch (120 mm) screen, a 8-megapixel rear camera, and a 9-millimetre (0.35 in) thick chassis.[23][24] Samsung confirmed the existence of the Galaxy S IIs successor on 5 March 2012, but it was not until late April 2012 that Samsungs Senior Vice-President Robert Yi confirmed the phones name to be "Samsung Galaxy S III".[25][26]
  14. 14. Samsung Galaxy S III 12 Unveiling After inviting reporters in mid-April, Samsung launched the Galaxy S III during the Samsung Mobile Unpacked 2012 event at Earls Court Exhibition Centre, London, on 3 May 2012, instead of unveiling their products earlier in the year during either the World Mobile Congress or Consumer Electronics Show.[11][27] One explanation for this decision is that Samsung wanted to minimize the time between its launch and availability.[28] The keynote address of the hour-long event was delivered by Loesje De Vriese, marketing director of Samsung Belgium.[29] The Galaxy S III was launched at Samsung Mobile Unpacked 2012 (3 May 2012) Litigation On 5 June 2012, Apple filed for preliminary injunctions in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California against Samsung Electronics, claiming the Galaxy S III had violated at least two of the companys patents. Apple requested that the court include the phone in its existing legal battle against Samsung (see Apple Inc. v. Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd.), referred to in the media as Apples "patent war,"[30] and ban sales of the S III prior to its scheduled 21 June 2012 U.S. launch.[31] Apple claimed the alleged infringements would "cause immediate and irreparable harm" to its commercial interest.[30] Samsung responded by declaring it would "vigorously oppose the request and demonstrate to the court that the Galaxy S3 [sic] is innovative and distinctive", and reassured the public that the 21 June release would proceed as planned.[30] On 11 June, Judge Lucy Koh said that Apples claim would overload her work schedule, as she would also be overseeing the trial of Samsungs other devices; consequently, Apple dropped its request to block the 21 June release of the S III.[32] In mid-July 2012, Samsung removed the universal search feature on Sprint and AT&T Galaxy S III phones with over-the-air (OTA) software updates to disable the local search function as a "precautionary measure" prior to its patent court trial with Apple, which began on 30 July 2012.[33] Although Apple won the trial, the S III experienced a sales spike due to the publics belief that the phone would be banned.[34] On 31 August 2012, Apple asked the same federal court to add the Galaxy S III and the Galaxy Note into its existing complaint, believing these products have violated its patents; Samsung countered with the statement: "Apple continues to resort to litigation over market competition in an effort to limit consumer choice."[35] Features Software and services Further information: Android (operating system), TouchWiz, and S Voice The Galaxy S III uses Googles Android mobile operating system, which was introduced commercially in 2008.[36] Its TouchWiz "Nature UX" graphical user interface (GUI)—which is influenced by the "organic" customer trend—is more interactive than Samsungs previous GUIs, with the notable addition of the "Water Lux" effect, which produces ripples upon contact.[16] To complement the TouchWiz interface, and as a response to Apples Siri, the phone introduces S Voice, Samsungs intelligent personal assistant. S Voice can recognise eight languages including English, Korean and French.[37] Based on Vlingo, S Voice enables the user to verbally control 20 functions such as playing a song, setting the alarm, or activating driving mode; it relies on Wolfram Alpha for online searches.[38] The S III comes with Android version 4.0.4, officially named "Ice Cream Sandwich", which became commercially available in March 2012 with the Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus.[39] Ice Cream Sandwich has a refined user interface,
  15. 15. Samsung Galaxy S III 13 expanded camera capabilities, security features and connectivity.[40] In mid-June 2012, Google unveiled Android 4.1 "Jelly Bean", which employs Google Now, a voice-assistant similar to S Voice, and incorporates other software changes. Samsung accommodated Jelly Bean in the S III by making last-minute hardware changes to the phone in some markets.[41] In September 2012, Samsung confirmed that Jelly Bean would start rolling out to the S III in October 2012.[42] The S III comes with a multitude of pre-installed applications including standard Android ones such as YouTube, Google+, Voice Search, Google Play, Gmail, Map, and Calendar, in addition to Samsung-specific apps such as ChatON, Game Hub, Video Hub, Social Hub and Navigation.[43][44] To address the fact that iPhone users are reluctant to switch to Android because the OS is not compatible with iTunes, from June 2012 Samsung offers customers of its Galaxy series the Easy Phone Sync app to enable the transfer of music, photos, videos, podcasts and text messages from an iPhone to a Galaxy device.[45] The user is able to access Google Play, a digital-distribution multimedia-content service exclusive to Android, to download applications, movies, music, TV programmes, games, books and magazines.[46] Apart from S Voice, Samsung has directed the bulk of the S IIIs marketing campaign towards the devices "smart" features, which facilitate improved human-device interactivity. These features include: "Direct Call", or the handsets ability to recognise when a user wants to talk to somebody instead of messaging them, if they bring the phone to their head; "Social Tag", a function that identifies and tags people in a photo and shares photos with them; and "Pop Up Play", which allows a video and other applications to occupy the screen at the same time.[47] In addition, the S III can beam its screen to a TV or be used as a remote controller (AllShare Cast and Play) and share photos with people who are tagged in them (Buddy Photo Share).[47] Other software features include Smart Alerts, Smart Stay, and S Beam.[47] The S III can access and play traditional media formats such as music, movies, TV programmes, audiobooks, and podcasts, and can sort its media library alphabetically by song title, artist, album, playlist, folder, and genre. One notable feature of the S IIIs music player is Music Square, which analyses a songs intensity and ranks the song by mood so that the user can play songs according to their current emotional state.[48] With the release of the S III, Samsung debuted its proprietary music management and download application called "Music Hub", designed to compete with Apples iTunes, iCloud, and iTunes Match services. Music Hubs music catalogue contains over 19 million songs.[49] The S III was the first smartphone to support Voice Over LTE with the introduction of HD Voice service in South Korea.[50] The phone enables video calling with its 1.9 MP front-facing camera, and with support for the apt-X codec, improves Bluetooth-headset connectivity.[51] Texting on the S III does not embody any new significant features from the S II. Speech-to-text is aided by the Vlingo and Googles voice-recognition assistant. Not unlike other Android devices, there are a multitude of third-party typing applications available that could complement the S IIIs stock keyboard.[52] On 18 June 2012, Samsung announced that the S III would have a version with enterprise software under the companys Samsung Approved For Enterprise (SAFE) programme, an initiative that facilitates the use of private Android devices by professional employees, also known as "Bring Your Own Device".[53] The enterprise S III version would support AES-256 bit encryption, VPN and Mobile Device Management functionality, and Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync.[54] It was scheduled to be released in the U.S. in July 2012. The enterprise version was expected to penetrate the business market dominated by Research in Motions BlackBerry, following the release of similar enterprise versions of the Galaxy Note, Galaxy S II and the Galaxy Tab line of tablet computers.[54][55] A separate "Developer Edition" of the S III was made available from Samsungs Developer Portal. It came with an unlockable bootloader to allow the user to modify the phones software.[56]
  16. 16. Samsung Galaxy S III 14 Hardware and design The Galaxy S III has a polycarbonate plastic chassis measuring 136.6 mm (5.38 in) long, 70.7 mm (2.78 in) wide, and 8.6 mm (0.34 in) thick, with the device weighing 133 grams (4.7 oz). Samsung abandoned the rectangular design of the Galaxy S and Galaxy S II, and instead incorporated round corners and curved edges, reminiscent of the Galaxy Nexus.[57] The phone is available in two basic color options: "Marble White" and "Pebble Blue"; however, "Pebble Blue" has reportedly been altered to a metallic blue-grey shade.[58] A "Garnet Red" model was made available exclusively to U.S. carrier AT&T from 15 July 2012.[59] "Sapphire Black", "Titanium Gray" and "Amber Brown" will also be available.[60] The S III comes in two distinct variations that differ primarily in the internal hardware. The international S III version has Samsungs Exynos 4 Quad system on a chip (SoC) containing a 1.4 GHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 central processing unit (CPU) The Galaxy Nexus (left) and the Galaxy S III and an ARM Mali-400 MP graphics processing unit (GPU).[61] According to Samsung, the Exynos 4 Quad doubles the performance of the Exynos 4 Dual used on the S II, while using 20 percent less power.[62] Samsung had also released several 4G LTE versions—4G facilitates higher-speed mobile connection compared to 3G—in selected countries to exploit the corresponding communications infrastructures that exist in those markets.[63] Most of these versions use Qualcomms Snapdragon S4 SoC featuring a dual-core 1.5 GHz Krait CPU and an Adreno 225 GPU.[64] The South Korean and Australia versions are a hybrid of the international and 4G-capable versions.[65] The S III has a maximum of 2 GB of RAM, depending on model.[63] The phone comes with either 16 or 32 GB of internal storage, with a 64 GB version to be available internationally; additionally, microSDXC storage offers a further 64 GB for a potential total of 128 GB.[66] Moreover, 50 GB of space is offered for two years on Dropbox—a cloud storage service—for purchasers of the device, doubling rival HTCs 25 GB storage for the same duration.[48] The S IIIs HD Super AMOLED display measures 4.8 inches (120 mm) on the diagonal, making it Samsungs third largest phone display, only exceeded by the Galaxy Notes 5.3 inches (130 mm) and the Galaxy Note IIs 5.5 inches (140 mm).[67] With a 1,280×720-pixel (720p) resolution, its pixel per inch (PPI, a measure of pixel density) is a relatively high 306,[66] which is accommodate by the removal one of the three subpixels—red, green and blue—in each pixel to create a PenTile matrix-display; consequently, it does not share the "Plus" suffix found on the S IIs Super AMOLED Plus display.[68] The glass used for the display is the damage-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass 2.[57]
  17. 17. Samsung Galaxy S III 15 The S III has an 8-megapixel camera similar to that of the Galaxy S II. It can take 3,264×2,448 resolution photos and record videos in 1,920×1,080-pixel (1080p) resolution. Samsung improved the cameras software over that of its predecessor to include zero shutter lag, and Burst Mode and Best Shot, which work together to quickly take numerous photos before the best-judged frame is selected.[69] The phone can also take pictures while recording videos.[68] The rear-facing camera is complemented by a 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera that can record 720p videos.[69] In addition to the 4.8-inch (120 mm) touchscreen, the S III has several physical user inputs including a home button located below the screen, a volume key on the left side and a power/lock key on the right.[44] At the top there is a 3.5-millimetre (0.14 in) TRRS headphone jack and one of the two microphones Back view of the Japanese S III [44] model, SC-06D on the S III; the other is located below the home button. The S III is advertised as having an MHL port that can be used both as a micro-USB On-The-Go port, and for connecting the phone to HDMI devices. However, a retailer later discovered that Samsung had made a modification to the electronics of the port such that only the adapter made specifically for this model by Samsung could be used.[70] The S IIIs li-ion 2,100 mAh battery is said to have a 790-hour standby time when using 3G (900 hours in 2G) and 11 hours of talk time in 3G (21 hours in 2G).[43] Built into the battery is near field communication connectivity, which allows users to share map directions and YouTube videos quickly using Wi-Fi Direct (through Android Beam), and perform non-touch payments at shops that employ specially-equipped NFC cash registers.[71] To help minimize battery consumption, Samsung has introduced "Smart Stay", an ability to track a users eyes and turn off whenever the person is not looking at it.[38] The battery can be wirelessly charged using a special charging pad (sold separately) that utilizes magnetic resonance to produce a magnetic field through which electricity could be transferred.[72] CNET TV torture -tested an S III by cooling it to 24 °F (−4 °C), placing it in a heat-proof box and heating it to 190 °F (88 °C), and submerging it in water—the S III survived all three tests. The phone also did not exhibit any scratches when a key was repeatedly scraped against the display.[73] Model variants On 16 May 2012, NTT DoCoMo announced that they would sell an LTE model of the S III, using a Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8960 SoC with an integrated on-die LTE-modem.[74] On 30 May 2012, several Canadian carriers announced that they also would sell an LTE model of the S III with the model number SGH-i747 and the same specifications as the one for NTT DoCoMo.[75] Within a week, on 4 June 2012, T-Mobile USA and AT&T[76] announced that they would sell the same versions of the S III as the Canadian carriers announced on 30 May. Verizon, Sprint and U.S. Cellular sell a similar version with CDMA support. Thus the design and name of the Galaxy S III for North America is retained from the international version, marking a deviation from the previous customization of design and name for different carriers of the previous Galaxy S models.[77] The South Korean LTE models—considered the ultimate Galaxy S III model[78]—share the 4G LTE support and 2 GB of RAM of the North American and Japanese versions, but come with the international versions Samsung Exynos 4 Quad SoC, in addition to the T-DMB module and antenna; this compelled Samsung to increase the models thickness to 9 millimetres (0.35 in).[65] A similar quad-core 4G LTE version of the S III is to be released in Australia.[79]

  19. 19. Samsung Galaxy S III 17 since sold more than 20 million handsets. Within a month of the London unveiling, auction and shopping website eBay noted a 119-percent increase in second-hand Android phone sales. According to an eBay spokesperson, this was "the first time anything other than an Apple product has sparked such a selling frenzy."[91] The S III was released in 28 countries in Europe and the Middle East on 29 May 2012.[92] To showcase its flagship device, Samsung afterwards embarked on a global month-long tour of the S III to nine cities, including Sydney, New Delhi, and cities in China, Japan, South Korea and the US.[93] The S III has helped Samsung consolidate its market share in several countries including India, where Samsung expected to capture 60 percent of the countrys smartphone market, improving on its previous 46 percent.[94] Within a month of release, Samsung had a 60-percent market share in France, while the company controlled over 50 percent of the German and Italian smartphone markets.[95] Over a similar period the S III helped increase Samsungs market share in the United Kingdom to over 40 percent, while eroding the iPhone 4Ss 25 percent to 20 percent in the country.[96] The S III was scheduled to be released in North America on 20 June 2012, but due to high demand, some U.S. and Canadian carriers delayed the release by several days, while some other carriers limited the market at launch.[97] The S IIIs U.S. launch event took place in New York City, hosted by Twilight actress Ashley Greene and attended by dubstep artist Skrillex, who performed at Skylight Studios.[98] Samsung estimated that by the end of July 2012, the S III would have been released by 296 carriers in 145 countries,[6] and that more than 10 million handsets would have been sold.[99] Shin Jong-kyun, president of Samsungs mobile communications sector, announced on 22 July that sales had exceeded 10 million.[100] According to an assessment by Swiss financial services company UBS, Samsung had shipped 5–6 million units of the phone in the second quarter of 2012 and will ship 10–12 million handsets per quarter throughout the rest of the year. An even more aggressive prediction by Paris-based banking group BNP Paribas says 15 million units will be shipped in the third quarter of 2012,[101] while Japanese financial consultant company Nomura places the figure for this quarter as high as 18 million.[102] Sales of the S III may top 40 million by the end of the year.[103] To meet demand, Samsung has hired 75,000 workers, and its South Korean factory is running at its peak capacity of 5 million smartphone units per month.[89][104] A manufacturing flaw resulted in a large portion of the new smartphones having irregularities with the "hyper-glazing" process. The mistake caused an undesirable finish on the blue back covers and resulted in the disposal of up to 600,000 plastic casings and a shortage of the blue model.[13] The issue was later resolved; however, Reuters estimated that the shortage had cost Samsung two million S III sales during its first month of release.[105] On 6 September 2012, Samsung revealed that sales of the S III had reached 20 million in 100 days, making it three and six times faster-selling than the Galaxy S II and the Galaxy S, respectively. Europe accounted for more than 25

Samsung Galaxy S III 18 percent of this figure with 6 million units, followed by Asia (4.5 million) and the U.S. (4 million); sales in South Korea, the S IIIs home market, numbered 2.5 million.[7] Around the same time of Samsungs announcement, sales of the S III surpassed that of the iPhone 4S in the U.S.[106] Criticism Reception to the Galaxy S III had been particularly positive. Critics noted the phones blend of features, such as its S Voice application, display, processing speed, and dimensions as having an edge over its competition, the Apple iPhone 4S and HTC One X.[57][68] Vlad Savov of The Verge declared it a "technological triumph",[108] while Natasha Lomas of CNET UK lauded the phones "impossibly slim and light casing and a quad-core engine", calling it the "Ferrari of Android phones",[68] a sentiment affirmed ("a prince among Android phones") by Dave Oliver of Wired UK and ("king of Android") Esat Dedezade of Stuff magazine.[109][110] Gareth Beavis of TechRadar noted that the S III is "all about faster, smarter and being more minimal than ever before while keeping the spec Technology commentator David Pogue declared the phone "the crème de la Android", list at the bleeding edge of technology."[111] Matt Warman of The Daily lauding its display size, design, and Telegraph said, "On spending just a short time with the S3, Im confident customizability, although he noted the lack of in saying that its a worthy successor to the globally popular S2".[112] integration with an entertainment [107] "ecosystem". Upon release, a number of critics and publications have made references to the S III, Samsungs 2012 flagship phone,[113] as an "iPhone killer",[14] responding perhaps to Apples favourable customer perception. [114] The label owes itself to the S IIIs use of the Android OS—the chief rival of Apples iOS—as well as its design and features that rival the iPhone 4S such as Smart Stay, a large display, a quad-core processor, Android customizability, and a multitude of connectivity options.[115] The S III was the first Android phone to have a higher launch price than the iPhone 4S when the Apple product was released in 2011.[116] With the S III, Tim Weber, business editor of the BBC, observed, "With the new Galaxy S3 they [Samsung] have clearly managed to move to the front of the smartphone field, ahead of mighty Apple itself."[92] Conversely, reviewers have opined on the design and feel of phone, calling its polycarbonate shell "cheap"[117] and having a "slippery feel".[111] The S Voice was described as "not optimised" and "more rigid than Siri" with its poor voice-recognition accuracy, with instances when it would not respond at all.[118][111] Another usage problem was a microphone malfunction that resulted in difficulty communicating during a call.[119] Reviewers have noted the somewhat abrupt auto-adjustment of display brightness, which tends to under-illuminate the screen[120] and its inferior camera compared to that of the HTC One X; however, it has twice the battery life compared to the HTC handset, achieved partly through the dim display.[121][122] Others say the numerous pre-installed apps make the S III feel "bloated".[123][124] On September 19, 2012, security researchers demonstrated during Pwn2Own, a computer hacking contest, that the S III can be hacked via NFC, allowing attackers to download all data from the phone; the event contest was held in Amsterdam, Netherlands.[125] uSwitch, a UK-based price comparison and switching website, had ranked the S III as the most popular phone on its website in March 2012.[126] In late-July 2012 TechRadar ranked it as the No. 1 handset in its constantly-updated list of the 20 best mobile phones;[127] Stuff magazine also ranked it at No. 1 in its list of 10 best smartphones in May 2012.[128] The Galaxy S III won an award from the European Imaging and Sound Association under the category of "European Mobile Phone" of 2012–2013.[129]
