You've put a lot of effort to tear this piece of work, which is Samsung S3 down for us to see in great detail, maybe greater than some of us, including me, is capable to processs with our not so technological brain. I would be also interested to know how exactly is a quadcore better than a quad core. For the moment, I was having great fun rooting S3, which gave me the liberty to overclock the processor, to see how much faster it could be, using XDA members' overclocking method: http://www.searchforsoft.com/reviews/How-To/Overclock-your-Samsung-Galaxy-S3-using-Ninphetamin3-custom-kernel-step-by-step-tutorial-53.htm . The phone was better in multitasking, but I renounced at this quite soon, as some of my friends warned me that it would make my phone hotter and as I saw with my own eyes that the battery lasted lesser.

So...no mention about which chip solution Samsung chose for their Qi wireless charging component? I'm guessing some IDT product, but I'd like some confirmation.

Wait for samsung exynos 5 soc, its ARM A15 cpu and Mali T604 GPU are a big leap over ARM A9 with mali400. ARM A15 eagle apps processor consumes 1Watt with very high processing power. Google/samsung nexus notebook has these in its exynos5. ARM's big little strategy adds an instruction compatible smaller companion cpu for power savings on smaller processing loads when present.

The key is the soc and inegrating latest ip from fast evolving ecosystem partners: quad or dual ARM A9 apps processor each with 2 GBytes of RAM and highdef multi core ARM GPUs, Linux based Android for ARM A9, and evolving OS and app features specific to samsung since galaxy initiated 3 years ago. When Samsung made a portable media player around my Sigmatel soc they sent four Linux developers to Austin who worked on the OS in one room and knocked it out with agile software engineering on Linux, leveraging ecosystem software quickly. my site www.dynamiclogic.us

I just bought one yesterday. Who can tell me how the Galaxy S3 implement the 'Smart stay' function. Only rely on the camera in Hardware, no other senor?

Abe Lincoln once apologized in a five- page letter to a friend that he did not have the time to write a one- page letter. Anyway, if you don't like 21 pages, don't read them. I think it's great that EET is providing so much detail. HOWEVER, the lead- in to the article states that three years ago, SS was a minor player. On which planet? I have been supplying chips to them since 1995 and the entire time they have been creative and aggressive and climbed steadily without a single setback and in every phone category to the top. No other maker has done that.

@wilber_xbox, what exactly is your point ? Are you saying Samsung used Apple's technology ?
