Samsung Galaxy S3 Sales Hits 10-Million Mark In Under Two Month

Sunday, July 22, 2012

Samsung has sold more than 10 million units of Galaxy S3, in less than two months, said Samsung's president of information technology and mobile communication, Shin Jong-kyun, Sunday (22/07/2012). Jong-kyun did not provide specific numbers, but some reports pointed out that this translates to about 190,000 Galaxy S III smartphones being sold every day. Far ahead of its very popular predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy S2 that reported sales hitting 10 million, five months after it reached consumers and the Galaxy S, sold 10 million in seven months.

Samsung is experiencing a "huge surge of momentum," thanks in large part to its latest smartphone, though not to the same degree as Apple is expected to see for its next-gen iPhone, according to a just-released survey from ChangeWave Research. Industry watchers said that since Samsung's main rival Apple Inc. is not expected to unveil its next generation iPhone until September or October, the Galaxy S3s sales should remain strong in the third quarter.

For the whole of 2012, sales of the smartphone that runs on the Android 4.0.4 "Ice Cream Sandwich" operating system, and features a 4.8-inch screen with Samsung's Exynos 4 quad core processor, could top the 40 million mark, making it an all time high for phones made by the South Korean tech giant.

Sony Xperia Neo L Review : Performance

Sony Xperia Neo L Review : Performance
Xperia neo L relies on second-gen Snapdragon chip, the Qualcomm MSM8255 with 1GHz single-core Scorpion processor, 512MB of RAM and Adreno 205 graphics. This is one of the most popular chips used by majority of Android devices. The results of benchmark testing from multiple applications shows pretty good results. Although Quadrant records total 1190 points, which puts neo L in the ninth position, AnTuTu with a score of 2985 is still putting neo L in the seventh position out of 9 devices, with Samsung GALAXY S below it and the Google Nexus S above.

Neo L performance in opening various web content is admirable, being able to sit on eighth place from more than 20 devices with a score of 934. The supports of 7.2Mbps HSDPA network is also very responsive when used. Adreno 205 GPU which works to increase the graphics performance of neo L is supported by the ability to respond to four touch at the same time, as it is read by Multitouch Benchmark application.

While for the quality of media players, almost no significant change from the previous series. The interface is easy to use, the fairly complete settings with a reliable quality will again be an added value of this smartphone.

On the camera, is available up to 5MP resolution for photos and 720p HD video. The use of both indoor or outdoor found no significant problems, either on a day with abundant lighting, and night with the dim light. Even though it has a night mode, you should avoid to use it, because it will actually be less than perfect. Instead, just take advantage of the flash light with the distance is not too close or use the automatic mode / normal. Unfortunately, the front camera which only capable of taking VGA pictures, looks such as low end mobile phones in terms of results. Rupture and is not sharp.

SONY Xperia neo L's battery life is quite standard, at least that's what I felt for a few days of testing. Not too extravagant, but also not exactly durable. Fortunately, SONY no longer "buried" the battery in the body so you can easily replace it with a backup when needed.
