I was due for a cellphone hardware upgrade since October 2011, but I just didn’t get it until recently. The reason why I didn’t get the upgrade right away was that I wanted to negotiate my contract first to see if I could somehow get it cheaper. I did get a few discounts for my cable/home phone/wireless bundle when I called in (internet used to be part of the bundle, but I switched over to another provider for that), and thought I would call in at a later time again to try to get a few more discounts. Anyway, since I have been very busy with everything else in my life, I didn’t get a chance to call in again. Now, the Samsung Galaxy S III (S3) is out, and I figured, oh well, just go ahead with it and whatever you currently pay for, just renew the 3-year contract.
I picked up my 32GB Marble White Samsung Galaxy S III on July 3rd, and was in love with it when I got it (currently, the other colour option is Pebble Blue). I was a bit hesitant before that to switch to an Android, since I have been a BlackBerry user for over two years and I felt I did not want to part with my BBM and BlackBerry keyboard. Anyway, I’m fine with it now, although I haven’t actually started using it.
See below for the photos of the unboxing of my Samsung Galaxy S III. I forgot to take a photo of the back of it before I got it armored. Included is a photo of the back of my phone after I got a pink Ghost Armor [www.ghost-armor.com] for it (thanks to Steve L. at the Scarborough Town Centre location for the discount).
The Samsung Galaxy S III is the flagship Android smartphone of Samsung Electronics released in 2012. Like its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy S II, the S III is a touchscreen-based, slate-sized smartphone, with a significant addition of software features, expanded hardware, and a redesigned physique. In particular, it employs an intelligent personal assistant (S Voice), eye-tracking ability, wireless charging, and increased storage. Depending on countries, the 4.8-inch (120 mm) smartphone comes with different processors and RAM capacity, and 4G LTE support.
