Proporta fans split over HTC One X & Samsung Galaxy S3

Over the last few days Proporta fans have been voting on our blog for their favourite new smartphone – the HTC One X or the Samsung Galaxy S3, and the results are in.

Drum roll please…
It turns out that this tech battle has ended up in a tie with each phone receiving 50% of the votes.

Results:
HTC One X = 50%
Samsung Galaxy S3 = 50%

We at Proporta knew that this was would be a tough choice, but did not imagine it would come down to a clear 50/50 split. Both of these new smartphones are clearly impressive devices, and this has been reflected in the results.

Siri vs S Voice – Proporta gets chatty with Galaxy S3 and iPhone 4S

Since the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S3, we’re all been dying to get to know Siri’s new rival called S Voice that features on this new smartphone. Voice control has become extremely sophisticated in the last few years and is constantly improving, but which is best: Siri or S Voice? We carried out a quick review of the two computer voices and filmed a couple of quick questions to see the responses from both the Galaxy S3 and the iPhone 4S.

S Voice
– UK female voice
– More function and less personality
– Can perform searches based on geography in UK

Siri
– UK male voice
– Mixture of function and a cheeky character
– Cannot currently perform geographical based tasks

What happens when you declare your love to a robot voice?

Can Siri or S Voice tell us what the meaning of life is?

We think it’s fair to say that both voice control systems for the Samsung Galaxy S3 and iPhone 4S can be extremely helpful for performing certain tasks, but there is still room for improvement in both. Siri’s cheeky personality is infectious and it’s often easy to forget that it’s not a real person you’re talking to. It will be interesting to see how S Voice develops and grows alongside Siri in the future (how long before they can make a cup of tea for us?).

Samsung Galaxy S3 Unboxing

The brand new Samsung Galaxy S3 has arrived at Proporta to a very excitable gaggle of Proportians. After all this time, we finally got our hands on the new Galaxy S3 which on first impressions looks very impressive indeed. Witness our grand unboxing ceremony (pretty simple really) below. In the meantime, you can take a look at all the Samsung Galaxy S3 cases we have on offer so you can protect and accessories your brand new smartphone.

Samsung Galaxy S3 – Top 5 Features

It seems like it’s been coming for a lifetime (and most of us at Proporta have been sitting on the edge of our seats for months now), but the Samsung Galaxy S3 is finally ready to launch. While we get to work on the new Samsung Galaxy S3 cases for you to accessorise with, we run down what some of the key new features are for the brand new S III.

Samsung Galaxy S3 features

1) The Look
Perhaps one of the more obvious features, the Samsung Galaxy S3 has a much curvier design than the S2 and has chosen not to go with a black option, but rather white and blue. Thankfully there are plenty of Samsung Galaxy S3 cases to choose from to brighten it up a bit. It is also slightly heavier and thicker than the older model with 8.66mm thickness and 133g in weight.

2) Display
The screen of the new Samsung Galaxy S3 larger than the S2 at 4.8 inches and will boast an HD Super AMOLED display with 720×1280 resolution.

3) Camera
Sticking with the 8-megapixel camera, the quality of photos on the Galaxy S3 is the same as its predecessor. However, the new model will now feature a 1080p HD video camera.

4) Memory and Storage
A 1.4GHz Exynos quad core processor and 1Gb of RAM in addition to improved battery capacity mean the new Galaxy is certainly a force to be reckoned with in the smartphone world when you look under the bonnet.

5) Voice Control
With Siri taking the Apple world by storm, Samsung had to offer an alternative for what is expected to be the iPhone’s biggest competitor. This comes in the form of S Voice, which is based more on instructing the phone and less on personality.

30Th May is the date that the S3 will be released in the UK. In the meantime, find Proporta’s fantastic new range of Samsung Galaxy S3 cases and pre-order today.

Samsung Galaxy S3 now available for pre-order on Amazon

However, it seems that Amazon Germany cannot wait any longer, as they have made the Samsung Galaxy S3 available for pre-order sending the tech work into a bit of a frenzy, with reports of record sales already.

Samsung Galaxy S3 release

As the latest Samsung Galaxy release date has yet to be announced, speculation has been in overdrive on the web with rumours flying left, right and centre. Experts are predicting however that the Samsung Galaxy release date will be revealed on 3rd May.

What details does the Amazon listing show?

– 4.7” Super AMOLED display
– 16GB storage
– In-built LED flash
– Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS

Samsung Galaxy S3 release date approaching?

According to numerous online blogs and websites, the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S3  release date could be very soon indeed. In fact, we’ve heard the Samsung Galaxy S3 could get its UK release as soon as this week. Here at Proporta, we’re really excited about the prospect of the new Samsung Galaxy S3 (not least because we can’t wait to design and produce a new Samsung Galaxy S3 case range), so we thought we’d run through what some of the expected features could be. Don’t forget you can find Samsung Galaxy S2 cases at Proporta in the meantime.

Samsung Galaxy S3 to be more like Note?

Display
The Galaxy S3 is rumoured to be getting a 4.8 inch HD display which is bigger than the S2 and will make for great viewing and even more of a reason to get a Samsung Galaxy S3 case to protect it. It is also a lot closer to the Galaxy Note tablet/phone hybrid (pictured).

Power
There is also talk of the Samsung Galaxy S3 release boasting an Exynos processor which is a chip that can be likened to those that power PCs and laptops.

Camera
We all know that there is massive demand when it comes to the quality of a camera on smartphones in today’s highly competitive market. So the speculation that on the Samsung Galaxy release date the phone giant will be announcing an 8-megapixel camera is not that hard to believe, particularly as this is what the iPhone 4S has.

Operating System
It is more than likely that the S3 will run on the latest Android operating system, ‘Ice Cream Sandwich’.

Whilst we’re all waiting for arguably the most anticipated Android phone to be released (and obviously a Samsung Galaxy S3 case collection from Proporta) you can check out the fantastic choice of Samsung Galaxy S2 cases and other smartphones too.
