The reviews and first impressions that are pouring in so far are quite ecstatic. CNET calls the Galaxy S III "the
Ferrari of android phones", one that's "pretty much unrivalled in the speed and power stakes right now".
Matt Warman, The Telegraph's (UK) consumer technology editor, praised the S III by calling it the first phone
where he almost forgot that he was actually using a phone and not a full-fledged computer.
