Galaxy SIII in the Philippines


Samsung Galaxy S III is the flagship product of the Korean Giant Company SAMSUNG to date and considered the best smartphone out there.

It uses Quad-Core 1.4 GHz Cortex-A9 as its main processor (CPU) and has Mali-400MP graphics processor unit (GPU) which can provide great experience in display in its Super AMOLED capacitive 4.8 inches high resolution touch screen with 306ppi (pixel density).

Incorporated inside is an Exynos 4212 Quad System on a Chip (SoC) that great for the coordination of all component-processing data such as the CPU, GPU, north and south bridge controllers.

It is currently compared with the one that HTC has created which is the HTC One X, also running in a quad-core processor. But S-III wins almost every battle when it comes to functionality and efficiency.

Several benchmarking test has been used and S-III runs best in compare with other smartphones in market. Dual-core smartphones are almost everywhere and cannot be equated to compete with S-III.

It is currently available for Php32, 000 in an online store named KIMSTORE, and Php30, 000 in other store which is the WIDGET CITY. Try checking the updated prices.
