There might be an urge to dismiss the Galaxy S3 as a mediocre, somewhat unattractive device, but that’s not going to stop Samsung from selling a HUGH NUMBER of phones – 9 million have already been pre-ordered. The Galaxy S3 has success written all over it, but not for the reasons you expect. Anyway, it is the most popular smartphone we know now, and yes, with a beautiful selling number as proof.
The Galaxy S3, unveiled at an international launch held at London’s Earls Court arena, includes innovative new features such as eye tracking so that the screen stays on while a user is looking at it. Innovative software features are fantastic, but that is not the main reason for pre-ordering 9 million before the gadget launch – even with few people getting to play on Android’s latest smartphone until it arrives in the UK on May 29. In the history of gadgets, none has picked up such an army of fans before launch and Galaxy S3 instantly becomes the fastest selling gadget in history. How about iPhone 4S? iPhone 4S was sold four million units in three days. Apple’s latest iPhone, the 4S, was preordered more than one million times in its first 24 hours of online availability to a global audience, but no further official figures or breakdowns were released.

The first thing you should consider before getting too down on the Galaxy S3 is that it’s the successor to a wildly successfully phone. The Galaxy S2 took the Android world by storm, eventually passing the 20 million unit mark in February 2012. Samsung even overtook Apple in smartphone sales in late 2011, largely on the strength of the Galaxy S2.
This rousing success has made Samsung the premier android OEM, and that encourages trust. There are consumers that will buy Samsung phones out of loyalty. Even those that haven’t had a Samsung Android phone before have seen them around. You’re likely to spot more Galaxy S2 variants floating around that any other brand.
Samsung has built up its trusty brand image with Samsung Galaxy S2, and leads people to try the Galaxy S3 when the time comes for an upgrade. The Galaxy brand is a legendary!
Software with a good first impression
Galaxy S3 is that the phone has some genuinely useful features: Smart Stay, the eye-tracking feature that keeps the display on while you’re looking at the phone. That will probably demo very well in a retail environment and get people interested in the phone. Likewise, Samsung’s foray into the voice-enabled future with S Voice is going to be a killer way to get noticed. The Samsung’s most innovative feature is built-in face-tracking and voice control – allowing, Samsung claims, for a more ‘natural’ control system.
S Voice – You may be thinking Siri with Apple this moment when talking about S Voice. That is true. Even Apple has to deal with constant complaints from users that don’t’ much care for Siri after the honeymoon period. Features like Smart Stay and S Voice are just good selling points – a way to get phones out the door- and Samsung knows that in a clear way!
An improvement to voice control, called S-Voice, that lets users control their phone using normal, natural language. So it’s like Siri, only it does more – you can say volume up, for instance, and the phone will filter out the noise of the song it’s playing so it can hear you. The S, we assume, stands for Samsung.
Smart Stay – In among those things is a new sensor that tracks your eyes – so long as you’re looking at the S3’s screen, it won’t dim or lock itself. Yes, you could just set the screen timer to longer, but “Smart Stay” means you don’t have to. In use, the feature seemed to work very well, with a little icon indicating the phone is watching your eyes.
Best Screen: It will also pay tribute to Samsung’s expertise in screens, with a large 4.8-inch Super AMOLED screen running a resolution of 1280 x 720p – far bigger than Apple’s iPhone, and close in size to the smaller end of the tablet market.
Intelligent Lock System: Other innovations include what Samsung claims is a ‘more intelligent’ lock system, that keeps the screen ‘awake’ when the phone’s camera senses eyes watching it, rather than turning it off.
50GB for Dropbox: Galaxy S3 will offer user 50GB of online storage via a partnership with Dropbox.com.
Buddy Photo Share: Elsewhere, the phone adds useful features that, for instance, can automatically share a photograph you take with people whose faces are recognised, called ‘Buddy Photo Share’, or display social media profiles directly on a photograph when those face are recognised. These are features that are useful rather than revolutionary, but they feel like they will be obvious standards in the near future. Tagging groups and offering an automatic slideshow zooming into the faces in a picture are also useful additions.
