The Samsung Galaxy S3 has become the most successful Android phone of all time. More than 50 million units have sầu shipped but now it’s been supersceded by the Samsung Galaxy S4, one of the most hotly anticipated phones ever. The success of the Galaxy S3 has helped make Samsung the biggest smartphone maker in the world, but it hasn’t been without its fair nói qua of controversy.

First was the news that the Galaxy S3 didn’t fare too well in drop tests and there are complaints that the build unique is not the best. This was particularly exacerbated by the numerous Galaxy S3 vs iPhone 5 comparisons which split the Android và iOS camps even further apart. The iPhone 5 has superior build quality & styling, but the Galaxy S3 scores highly on features and value for money.

With more than 4,000 user responses the Galaxy S3 generally scores well one ease of use, features, thiết kế and value for money but there have been complaints that the battery life could be better. This is despite a Which? report that highlighted the S3 as one of the better performing smartphones in terms of battery life.

Introduction

If you ignore Apple, very few electronic productshave garnered as much attention as the Galaxy S3 in recent years. After the huge success of the Galaxy S2 this is a follow up that many people have sầu expected to lớn again be the flag bearer for Android smartphones. But has Samsung succeeded? Is the Samsung Galaxy S3 the pinnacle of Android smartphones, & indeed of di động phones in general? Lets find out.

SEE ALSO: Samsung Galaxy S4 VS S5 VS S6: Which is the right nâng cấp for you?

Samsung Galaxy S3 – Design and Build

Anyone that’s already familiar with the Galaxy S3 will know that its design and build has courted controversy. Eschewing the premium feeling materials of the iPhone 4S or HTC One X, it uses a glossy plastic back which, although by no means inherently budget, is a finish more associated with cheaper handsets.

*

Does this make the Galaxy S3 undesirable? No, it certainly doesn’t go that far, and indeed if you put it next lớn the Sony Xperia S it really shows just how much Sony slipped up on that thiết kế, but next lớn an iPhone 4S or Smartphone HTC One X it’s these two that give off the stronger whiff of craftsmanship.

*

In practical terms there are a few genuine issues with the Galaxy S3 too. While the polycarbonate that the backplate is made from is very tough due to its pliability, it isn’t very scratch resistant, even with an extra scratch resistant coating – either the matt finish of the Điện thoại HTC One X of Xperia S, or glass of the iPhone 4S will standup khổng lồ more punishment. That said, it should be relatively inexpensive sầu to lớn get replacement backs for the Galaxy, & given that it’s a single piece that covers the entire back, this will make your phone scratch-không tính tiền in one fell swoop.

We’ve sầu lived with the S3 for a few months now và haven’t noticed too many scratches on the baông xã, which is impressive sầu considering we haven’t been using a case. Indeed, as predicted Samsung’s choice of finishes – glossy white (Marble White) & faux brushed metallic xanh (Pebble Blue) wear what scratches they vì chưng have sầu reasonably well. A new glossy blaông xã version is soon to lớn become available too, though, so we’ll have khổng lồ wait và see how that one holds up.

Speaking of the new blaông xã Samsung Galaxy S3, we’re certainly glad of its arrival because while both the xanh và trắng versions aren’t awful by any means, nothing beats good old black.

*

The other potential issue is that, particularly given the Galaxy S3 is such a large & thin phone, it could succumb to lớn being crushed. Particularly we’re thinking in comparison lớn the iPhone 4S & its tough steel sides here. That phone can take a right squishing và squashing when in a pocket whereas we’d be a little more wary of cracking this phone’s screen if crouching down or bending over. Then again, this could equally apply to many other large, thin phones và we pretty sure you’d have sầu to be rather unlucky for it khổng lồ actually happen. In our few months of use we’ve sầu not had any issues yet.

Moving on from the Galaxy’s plastic baông xã, we have few complaints about the rest of the design. The smooth glass face with its tapered edges, the tidy silver plastic tryên ổn (real metal would again have been nice) and single central trang chủ button combine lớn create a tidy, premium look and feel. The screen is also Gorilla Glass 2 so should be very scratch & impact resistant.

That said, in numerous drop test videos we’ve seen comparing the S3 khổng lồ arch-rival the iPhone 4S and iPhone 5, it’s the S3 hasn’t fared well, its screen tending to shatter more often.

*

Pop that battery cover off & you’re inlớn a whole world of goodness. There’s a microSD slot that’ll take cards up to lớn 64GB in form size, potentially giving you up to lớn 128GB of storage if you opt for the S3 with 64GB of built in memory. You also get a large 2100mAh battery that not only can you swap out for a spare when needed but also in the future you may be able to replace it & the backplate with extended batteries that last longer on a single charge (not that we’ve sầu seen any yet, several months after launch). While the SIM slot on the Galaxy may look large it actually houses a microSIM, like the iPhone 4S and HTC One X. One counterpoint to the removable battery is that you can’t hot-swap SIM cards lượt thích on the One X.

Also under here, lớn the left of the battery, are two gold contacts. These are for a future wireless charging backplate và dock that will allow you to simply place your Galaxy S3 on its dock to charge it, without the need to plug in. Its technology we first saw built inlớn a phone on the Palm Pre, & we think it’s downright brilliant. Sadly the required accessories are still not available.

Screen và ControlsCutting right lớn the chase, the S3’s screen is excellent & is a huge tăng cấp over most screens from previous generations. Its sheer form size is enthralling when watching đoạn Clip or playing games, making the iPhone 4S look positively backward in this regard. It’s also colourful và sharp thanks to lớn its 1,280 x 720 (720p) pixels, and has great viewing angles.

*

However, there are a number of issues.

In practice we found the automatic brightness setting was way off, constantly making the screen too dyên ổn, which is annoying as it means regularly having to lớn change this setting manually to lớn balance readability và battery life. Bizarrely there are also four separate brightness levels reserved for the website browser only – one for the browser, fine, but not four. Moreover, overall brightness is lower than we were expecting, being outdone by both the iPhone 4S and Smartphone HTC One X. The result is that the S3 isn’t as good as those two in bright conditions.

Then of course there are the downsides of the form size of the thing. Sure, it’s a notch smaller than the very popular Samsung Galaxy lưu ý và only a tad larger than many other large premium Android phones, but there’s no denying it’s a bit of a handful.

Comparing dimensions with the rest of the big phone fraternity, the Galaxy S3 is slimmer than the rest but is in fact the tallest và widest apart from the cảnh báo – no surprise given it also has the largest screen at 4.8in (again aside from the Note). At 133g it is surprisingly light, though.

Frankly, we’re still somewhat in two minds as lớn which overall philosophy we prefer – the small phone accompanied by a tablet approach of the iPhone và máy tính bảng ipad or the “one device lớn rule them all” style of these larger phones. Ultimately it comes down khổng lồ how you operate as to lớn which you’ll prefer, but we still tkết thúc lớn like the slightly smaller phones. Or at least if we were going for a large device we’d go for something that added extra features such as the stylus of the Galaxy Note. After all, if you need two hands to use the thing anyway, why not use a stylus khổng lồ be more accurate about it – it’s better for Draw Something at the very least.

What’s more, within the context of these large phones, the Galaxy S3 didn’t feel as easy khổng lồ handle as we’d hope, despite some laudable attempts khổng lồ make it so.

Its curved edges make it sit quite comfortably in the h& but along with the glossy bachồng they also make it very slippery. Indeed khổng lồ us the phone’s ‘designed for humans’ label seems woefully misjudged. Despite the screen loông chồng button being put on the right edge, where it should be easier to reach than the top, we actually found it little easier. If you have particularly large hands you might be able to lớn reach but for average hands or smaller it still doesn’t fall under your fingers when holding the phone normally. Designed for giants?

Likewise, the physical trang chủ button should in theory make things easier as it saves you having to reach for the power button lớn unloông chồng the screen. But, again Samsung has slipped up. We found it an awkward manoeuvre khổng lồ reach the button as it’s too near the bottom of the phone và it’s too narrow. Also, we found we quite often accidentally pressed the two touch-sensitive sầu buttons lớn either side, which is aggravating to say the least.

*

As such, despite its screen lock button being on the top edge, và it having a touch-sensitive sầu trang chủ button (i.e. one that can’t be used lớn unlock the screen) we actually found the HTC One X pretty much on par in terms of handling.

Much of this is nitpicking, và we strongly doubt anyone will be driven to lớn distraction by any of these issues but overall it does leave sầu us feeling that there’s still work to be done khổng lồ really make these large phones practical for one handed (i.e. practical day to lớn day for busy people) use.

*

Getting baông xã khổng lồ the screen, the other reason it’s a potential issue is that it uses an HD Super AMOLED display. What does this mean? Well, the AMOLED bit means it uses pixels that are self-illuminating, with no need for a backlight like on LCD displays. This results in amazing contrast, with blaông chồng và other dark colours not looking washed out when next to bright colours. Meanwhile the HD bit denotes this as having a peer-matching 720p (7trăng tròn x 1280 pixel) resolution. The combination of these two means watching đoạn phim và playing games is a truly mesmerizing experience on this phone.

So far so good, but it’s the laông xã of the word Plus – as seen on the Galaxy S2 – that is the concern. This lack denotes the display as using a PenTile subpixel arrangement. Here, instead of using three subpixels (Red, Green & Blue) for each px it only uses two (Red và Green, then Blue & Green). This results in a number of visual oddities including a slight shimmering/moire effect in some moving images, a raggedy look to the edges of fine text, coloured fringes between bordering blaông chồng và White pixels and a slightly grainy look to lớn solid blocks of colour.

All these elements were particularly noticeable on earlier Pentile AMOLED screens but the much smaller pixels on these lachạy thử high resolution screens means most are almost imperceptible now. It’s only really the moiré and graininess that are visible. The former stands out when using the camera or watching Clip where movement highlights the shimmering effect, while the latter can still come through on solid colours such as the trắng backgrounds on web pages. You also quite often get horizontal or vertical lines that should be the same width appearing as different widths, such as the text box in a web browser. It’s the sort of thing that if you’re aware of it, you’ll probably still find it slightly annoying but equally you could quite easily use this phone for a year và never notice.

*
Samsung Galaxy S3 Screen Closeup – note how you can almost see the red, green và blue subpixels on the bloông xã of white.

*
Smartphone HTC One X Screen Closeup – this screen has a similar level of sharpness but colours look smoother.

*
iPhone 4S Screen Closeup – the iPhone 4S (và iPhone 5) have sầu slightly sharper, smoother looking displays

The final thing khổng lồ consider is AMOLED can have a slightly blue colour cast lớn the whole screen that only gets worse at an angle, và colours can look over-saturated too. However both these issues aren’t too noticeable here. Comparing the Điện thoại HTC One X and S3 side by side, the S3 does look a bit xanh but then the One X does look a bit red, and Samsung seems to lớn have sầu toned down the saturation a bit so everything looks a bit more natural.

When all is said and done, the S3 screen is still excellent, it’s just not taking screens to lớn another cấp độ. The Galaxy cảnh báo & Galaxy Nexus both offer essentially the same experience in terms of AMOLED quality while the Smartphone HTC One X’s LCD display is better for some things (reading text và web browsing) but worse for others (watching video). Meanwhile if you aren’t dead set on getting a massive sầu screen the iPhone 4S still impresses when it comes khổng lồ raw chất lượng but boy does it look like a baby compared lớn these monsters.

PerformanceWhere the Samsung Galaxy S3 really pulls out a comfy lead over all và sundry is its sheer horsepower. Under its hood is a quad-core Samsung Exynos 4212 Quad processor, which is based on ARM’s Cortex A9 architecture. In use the phone feels pretty fast, with apps loading quickly và the interface flying smoothly by as you navigate.

However, there is a strange lag to lớn the whole thing. It can take half a second or so for an ứng dụng lớn load from being tapped, though once you get there the tiện ích is fully loaded và ready lớn go. This is in contrast lớn the iPhone and Smartphone HTC One X where the tiện ích loads instantly but then the content of the app takes the half second to load. Both are essentially as fast as each other but the iPhone/Điện thoại HTC way feels quicker. There is one instance where there is a genuine lag though, which is when waking the phone from standby – for no apparent reason it can be quite temperamental và take a few seconds khổng lồ get lớn the homescreen.

Putting the phone lớn the thử nghiệm with a few benchmarks, it’s actually beaten in single threaded tasks by the Cortex A15 powered chip of the Smartphone HTC One S but when it comes lớn multi-tasking benchmarks it wipes the floor with the competition.

This applies double when it comes lớn gaming where the S3’s Mali 400 processor simply annihilates all before it. There’s little practical benefit khổng lồ all this power here và now – certainly as compared with any of the other quad core phones – as there’s simply no apps that use it, but it’s always nice lớn have.

InterfaceThe Samsung Galaxy S3 comes out the box running the lakiểm tra 4.0 version of Android so you have all the lachạy thử features from Google. But of course Samsung has made its own tweaks to lớn give the whole phone a slightly different look, and it’s added a fair few features too.

Right off the bat, things are a little different. Swiping the screen to lớn unloông xã it produces a ripple effect across the screen, which is rather snazzy. You can also jump straight lớn one of four apps listed along the bottom of the loông chồng screen, which is particularly useful for jumping quickly khổng lồ the camera in the absence of a dedicated camera button. However, we couldn’t find a way of customising which apps appear on this danh mục, which limits its usefulness a little.

Once on the home screen the first thing you notice is that Samsung has stuông chồng with its style for the docked icons at the bottom of the screen. Like previous Galaxy S phones the Apps thực đơn sits far right with other icons khổng lồ the left. In contrast the standard Google way has the Apps inhỏ in the middle. Quite simply, we prefer the Google way. Similarly, it’s now a standard Android gesture that you can drag one app onkhổng lồ another to start a new app folder, but Samsung has removed this ability, making it an overly convoluted process to lớn add a thư mục.

These couple of minor points aside, the general homescreen experience is good. You’ve got seven homescreens to lớn fill with apps, folders of apps and widgets, with a healthy selection of useful widgets on h&. There is a fair amount of filler but equally some useful extras.

Swipe down from the top of the screen khổng lồ bring up the notifications area và you’ve sầu got a plethora of quiông chồng actions on hvà for quickly toggling Wi-Fi on and off, muting the device và such lượt thích. Notifications are not only signalled by vibrations và tones but also by a blue light recessed in the top left of the phone. These notification lights are becoming more và more comtháng now but it’s good to see Samsung hasn’t slipped up here.

One thing we must applaud Samsung for is that when on the central homescreen, pressing the Home button doesn’t zoom out khổng lồ a thumbnail view of your homescreens. Điện thoại HTC does this và it’s infuriating if you accidentally press the trang chủ button too many times. If you want the zoomed out view you can pinch inwards on the screen with two fingers.

In fact, gestures are something Samsung has gone to town with. You can rearrange your appsby grabbing an phầm mềm và spinning the yourself (và the phone) round to lớn move sầu through the homescreens. In the browser you can zoom in & out by pressing the screen with two fingers và tilting the phone baông xã & forth. And, to lớn jump to the top of a menu you can double tap the bezel above sầu the screen. The latter is a particularly clunky take on the standard iOS interface gesture where you just tap once at the top of the screen to lớn scroll baông chồng to lớn the top of a danh mục. The Samsung version does not work very well, though is a welcome addition.

Yet more gestures include the ability to lớn mute calls or pause music by simply turning the phone over, và you can take a screenshot by swiping the side of your hvà across the screen (or pressing both the trang chủ và Screen Loông xã buttons together)

Pop inkhổng lồ the Apps menu & apps are arranged into lớn (now standard) side scrolling pages, or there’s an option to show them in a list with one app per line. Quite why the former of these has become the convention on Android over và above sầu a simple vertical scrolling grid, we don’t know but that it has.

Alongside the Apps tab is the Widgets tab wherein you can find all the fun widgets lớn add to lớn your homescreens. There’s also a section for apps you’ve sầu downloaded too.

All told Samsung has made some good changes and some not so good ones compared to mặc định Android 4.0 so that overall the interface feels mostly slichồng and easy lớn use but certainly isn’t perfect, a phrase that sums up every re-skinned version of Android we’ve ever seen.

S VoiceHowever, there are two key additions that Samsung is hoping puts its phone ahead of the competition. The first is a voice control system called S Voice. It’s a take on Apple’s Siri that’s activated by double tapping the Home button or by speaking a customisable commvà lớn the phone.

It’s a neat addition, particularly as you can activate it by voice alone, allowing you khổng lồ stay completely hands không tính tiền while driving, for instance. You can play & pause music, open apps, dictate messages, activate driving mode và of course dial a number. For these basic tasks it’s not too bad but it quickly comes a cropper doing anything more complicated, và certainly doesn’t have the intelligence or humour of Siri.

What’s more the process can be slow as the Vlingo powered voice interpretation goes bachồng & forth to the server, & of course it doesn’t work if you don’t have any Wi-Fi or 3G signal. It also crashed a little too regularly. The overarching impression is that aside from activating a few key features while driving S Voice is of limited use. So, just like Siri then.

Smart StayThe other big feature of the core interface that Samsung is pushing is Smart Stay. This ensures the screen doesn’t timeout and power off while you’re still looking at it. It does this by tracking you eyes using the front facing camera.

As well as saving you from annoying moments where the screen just turns off, there’s the potential to save sầu battery by keeping the screen timeout khổng lồ the minimum 15 seconds so it’s always powering off quickly, yet never be irked by the screen suddenly timing out while you’re still reading passively. It works reasonably well in well lit situations. However, in darker scenarquả táo of if your face is masked by shadow it can struggle lớn read you. It also doesn’t work if the phone’s phối down on a table or such lượt thích & you’re just glancing at it. Still it’s a nice feature to have.

Contacts và SetupGetting the Galaxy S3 all thiết lập with your contacts, Calendars and social networks is a doddle as on most Androids, though Samsung has complicated things a teensy weensy bit as neither the Facebook nor Twitter apps come preinstalled. Moreover twitter isn’t integrated into lớn your contacts, with only Facebook info being pulled in along with your Google tài khoản info.

This is all a bit strange when many rivals come with all these built in – the iPhone being the obvious exception. However, the overall contacts interface is decent.

Samsung has replaced the standard Android Calendar with its S Planner tiện ích, which is a move fraught with pitfalls. However the app is actually very sliông xã and didn’t leave sầu us wanting during our testing.

Điện thoại tư vấn QualityWe were amazed at how good the gọi chất lượng of the S3 is. Both received & transmitted audio was of a very high standard và notably free of noise. Signal strength also seemed good, though obviously this is a very variable factor depending on networks và such like.

MessagingThere’s little to shout about when it comes lớn the S3’s messaging abilities. Android is excellent for SMS, gmail and instant messaging & Samsung hasn’t changed things enough to break this. The only complaint we have sầu is the colour scheme – all those lurid colours on a blaông chồng background look distinctly inelegant.

InternetAs with messaging, the core Android experience is so good for web browsing that Samsung hasn’t needed to change much, so hasn’t. Flash is supported so sites lượt thích just as they bởi vì on a proper PC, & because the phone is so fast Flash elements don’t slow the phone down too much either.

Again, there’s only one little complaint we have which is that there are no navigation or function buttons arranged along the bottom of the screen where they’re easy to reach one-handed. To add a bookmark, switch tabs và everything else, you need to lớn go all the way to lớn the thực đơn at the top – often a two handed job.

Camera Talking of the camera, it is very good. The sensor & optics are no better than the HTC One X or iPhone 4S but the results are at least as good if not better most of the time. The app offers plenty of options allowing you khổng lồ tailor your shots according to lớn shooting conditions, & the automatic settings tkết thúc khổng lồ bởi a pretty good job.

However, the iPhone 4S tends to offer even more consistent automatic results (& has a better HDR mode) while the Điện thoại HTC One X offers by far the best interface, with a good balance of extra features and easy of use, but its pictures tend not to be quite so good when it comes to detail. Both the S3 and the One X also have sầu markedly more powerful flashes than the iPhone, making them genuinely useful in dark situations.

We also noticed one oddity whereby tapping on the screen lớn piông chồng your point of focus doesn’t affect the overall metering of the image. So if you’re trying lớn pick out a dark subject against a light background, for instance, the camera will often not get it right, exposing for the background and having a silhouette for a subject.

The powerful flash manages to completely illuminate our pitch blaông chồng store room.

As an aside, all three of these phones really highlight how megapixels aren’t the be all and end all as they all categorically beat the Sony Xperia S’ 12 megapx mã sản phẩm.

Video recording is offered in up khổng lồ 1080p resolution and again it’s on par with much of the competition when it comes khổng lồ detail. However, you can’t toggle the flash during shooting and the autofocus did seem a bit erratic. There’s also not a slow motion mode.

Video We’ve already touched on just how good Clip looks on this phone but what we haven’t yet mentioned is how easy the experience is too. The mặc định player will play anything you throw at it flawlessly, saving the need to lớn tải về a third các buổi party phầm mềm.

Some may still prefer lớn use a particular ứng dụng but at least there’s no necessity khổng lồ. Just drag and drop your files onto lớn the device và away you go – something that is made doubly easy thanks khổng lồ the microSD slot. A nice touch in the Samsung app is that it shows a short pĐánh Giá of all the videos when viewed as thumbnails.

Samsung has also included a Video tải về service called Video Hub. Like much of these 3rd tiệc nhỏ đoạn Clip download services, it didn’t seem khổng lồ have sầu the greakiểm tra selection on offer so didn’t particuarly capture our imagination but prices seemed reasonable. One nicety it does laông xã, though, is the £0.99 rentals on HTC’s equivalent, which are great if you’re at a loose over and just want to kill some time on the cheap.

Pictures Samsung has heavily tweaked the Android Gallery phầm mềm changing the layout to a side-scrolling grid of large thumbnails that pulls in your images from Facebook too (it doesn’t store them locally so you vị need an mạng internet connection khổng lồ actually view them). It’s an interesting twist but we weren’t overly keen on it in practical terms as scrolling is a little slow and it just didn’t feel as quick or easy khổng lồ get to the snaps you want. Still, it basically gets the job done.

Music As well as the Clip hub, Samsung also has its Music Hub which is ahy vọng the best offerings out there. Like most services it provides access to streaming music and music downloads, with a large 19 million song selection on offer. But it also has a music match service akin lớn Apple’s iTunes Match service. This finds what music you have stored on your PC already and uploads it lớn a cloud storage service with 100GB of space. So, no matter where you are you can access all your music.

Samsung has also added the Music Square which helps you pick a playdanh mục of music based on your selected mood, picked out by choosing a square from the grid. However, Passionate, Calm, Joyful và Exciting are the only moods on offer, so quite how it’s supposed khổng lồ accommodate indie of metal fans, we’re not too sure.

As for general ease of use and playback chất lượng, the former we had no issues with aside from an inability to lớn start the music player from the loông chồng screen (like you can on the iPhone where you just double tap the trang chủ button) but playbachồng unique suffers from the usual slight hiss that plagues just about every Android phone we’ve sầu ever tested. You’ll only notice with very good unique, sensitive headphones but it is there và can detract from quiet music.

Dropbox Like Điện thoại HTC, Samsung has hooked up with Dropbox khổng lồ provide integrated cloud storage on your phone. This allows you khổng lồ upload photos on the fly as you snap them as well as access your Dropbox files. Samsung has also trumped Smartphone HTC by providing 50GB of miễn phí storage, where Smartphone HTC only offers 25GB.

Battery Life The Samsung Galaxy S3’s larger 2100mAh battery does indeed put it a little ahead of the competition (most of which have sầu 1800mAh or smaller batteries), giving you a better chance of having the phone actually last a day. However, with heavy use it still drains pretty quick và we still found it running dry long before the day was out. But, if you’re sparing it should give you a couple more hours use over most of the competition.

Verdict There’s no doubting the Samsung Galaxy S3 is technologically the top dog at the moment. It’s screen is dazzling, its processor incredibly fast và its battery life is better than most. Add in extras such as a microSD slot, NFC & wireless charging và you have sầu a phone that no other can match.

However, despite all these features there’s a lack of that certain something that truly makes it desirable, thanks in large part to an interface that lacks a truly cohesive sầu feel và an uninspiring kiến thiết. Then again, it’s not like any other Android alternative sầu gets it all right, either. The Smartphone HTC One X has a nicer screen for general điện thoại thông minh use, and has a slightly nicer thiết kế, but it also has plenty of slip ups like a lack of microSD. Meanwhile the Motorola Razr Maxx offers stellar battery life, microSD and microHDMI but doesn’t have all that great a screen.

There is of course the whole screen kích thước issue too. Samsung has made an effort to make the S3 easy lớn handle despite its size but it’s not there yet – we still found it cumbersome. Nonetheless, if you can live with a large phone day to lớn day then the S3 is the current piông xã of the bunch.

As for the iPhone competition, both the iPhone 4S & iPhone 5 have sầu the S3 beat for thiết kế (both for toughness and style) và we find them much easier khổng lồ handle, plus of course the app store’s better stocked. But you vị miss out on NFC, expandable memory, and it’s more difficult lớn customise the handmix to lớn vị what you want.
