Yesterday, we took submissions for Custom ROM Friday and got an overwhelming response to check out SynergyROM for the Galaxy S3. SynergyROM brings your basic Galaxy S3 skin look, but with lots of performance tweaks and optimizations such as re-sizable floating windows, Photo Sphere abilities, and other goodies. (more…)
Facebook Home is official and launching April to the Google Play store. Device compatibility is limited for now, as Facebook has worked to make the experience as polished as can be. The first run of devices includes the HTC One and One X. From Samsung we’ll see compatibility for the Galaxy S3, Galaxy S4, and Galaxy Note 2. Other devices will come down the road.
Tablet support is also coming, but not for a few of months. (more…)
According to a Samsung insider, the OEM is currently making plans to upgrade certain devices to the upcoming Android 5.0 operating system. From what was reported, it looks like the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy S4 can expect to see it, as well as the Galaxy Note 2, Galaxy Tab 10.1, and Galaxy Note 8.0. Android 5.0, which is rumored to be named Key Lime Pie, should be unveiled at this year’s Google I/O event in May. (more…)
If you caught yesterday’s Unpacked event from Samsung, you noticed they took plenty of time to show off a lot of interesting new software features that will come baked into the Galaxy S4. In a recent interview, Samsung’s VP of Portfolio Planning confirmed that a lot of the software enhancements that we saw yesterday would make their way to Samsung’s other flagship devices, as long as they are not hardware dependent.

With the Samsung Galaxy S4 now official, we felt it was necessary to compare the device to the two previously released Samsung flagships, the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2. There is no better way to see how something has evolved from a spec standpoint then by laying them out side-by-side in a couple of columns.
What do you guys think, big enough jump from one phone to another? (more…)
What better time to snag a deal on last year’s top devices than with the next rendition being unveiled in a few more hours. Starting today, Amazon Wireless is hosting a penny deal on Galaxy S3 phones through Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint, but if the Galaxy Note 2 is more your size, you can pick one up on AT&T or Sprint for $149.99 or $69.99.

Even though the wait for the the Galaxy S4 is finally coming to an end on Thursday, it looks like Samsung is working on a refresh for the Galaxy S3. According to industry inside Eldar Murtazin, Samsung is looking to push out a beefed up Galaxy S3 to certain markets, complete with a better display, wireless charging, and a 2,400mAh battery.
As to when and where we can expect this new Galaxy S3 to launch, little is known. It isn’t the worst idea we have ever heard, as long as Samsung doesn’t intend to spend any money on marketing this thing, especially since a brand new flagship is ready to roll out. They also better slash the price on this thing, as we typically see older models of phones drop when their successor hits the market. Take the iPhone for example.
Then again, why do we need a beefed up Galaxy S3 at all? Just discount the current version and give us the new beauty.
