Samsung Galaxy S3 Review: It Has A Dark Side Too

By  | 

While the Samsung Galaxy S3 is one of the most pre-ordered handsets it does have its downsides. Here are some of the most common gripes about the device. The folks over at LatinoPost (LP) have highlighted a couple of Samsung Galaxy S3 complaints that pop up frequently:

Samsung Galaxy S3 review: negative words from around the web (LP)

S-Voice is often moaned about by users with some saying that although it is competent it does lack wit and you are better of using straightforward commands. Some say that is not accurate and you have to have a good data connection to make it work fluidly.

One of the gimmicks that annoy users of the handset is Social Tag which uses facial recognition tech to match the faces in photos with profile photos of any contacts. Another annoying thing is AllShare Play and GroupCast which some say are too complicated to set up and use.

Owners are disappointed that the camera on the handset was not the rumored 12 megapixels. The S2 has an 8 megapixel so one would have thought that Samsung would have boosted it up for their latest device. While people do like the improved sensor which takes HD video in 1080p, pictures over both generation of S devices look almost the same.

Many have complained about the Samsung Galaxy S3 having a plastic body to it which gives it a low end look. In comparison to the iPhone 4S and HTC One X, the Galaxy S3 does looks a little cheap. Others have said that it is too big and not for the hands of everyone. The screen has also come under fire as it feels quite dim.

Overall many people have said that the HTC One X IPS display is better than the Samsung Galaxy S3. People who own Macs have also said that they cannot connect the phone to their iMac thanks to the MTP protocol.

Do you have any gripes about the Samsung Galaxy S3 or does it meet your expectations?
