Need to know – Samsung Galaxy S3
Samsung Galaxy S3 – Design and build
Design-wise the Galaxy S3 is packed into a more curvaceous shell than its predecessor – doubtless a consequence of all those Apple lawsuits. It's available from launch in white and (exceedingly dark) blue; build quality feels more premium than the slightly flimsy Galaxy S II – despite being thinner (8.6mm against the S II's 9mm) it weighs in at 133g versus the S II's 116g.
The screen is surrounded by a thinner bezel than that of its predecessor, while the home button is now the only physical button on the front face.
