Though, Korean tech giant Samsung may need to pay a huge amount(appx US$1B) to US tech emperor Apple as per US Federal Court order (battle not ended), yet, Samsung rules over smartphone market allover the world including USA. Their Galaxy S3 is a huge success in terms of business. On the contrary, many S3 users along with iPhone lovers making chaos against it's lower quality, specially about body finish and back cover.
Samsung primarily released Galaxy S3 with two normal color variation Marble White and Pebble Blue. After sometime, they've released another color variation, Garnet Red, exclusively for AT&T users. Now, they're going to release four new vibrant color variants of this smartphone. These variants likely will appear in the next month. You can see the new colors of Samsung Galaxy S3 from here.
Samsung products varies from region to region. Buyer from USA uses US variants, European buyers uses another slightly modified variants. South Asian users specially Indian customers find another customized edition of the same product. Galaxy S3 may also differs from region to region and carrier to carrier also.
Samsung captured smartphone market by lowering their gadget's price but with new and innovative technologies and a very aggressive marketing policy. Other major competitors like Apple, HTC, LG, Motorola, Nokia, Sony and Blackberry holds their respective market share with much un-compromised manufacturing and marketing policy. Maybe, now time has come to question Samsung, if they will change their business policy to deliver much more qualitative mobile phones with comparatively lower price or not. In another sense, there are many Chinese non branded or local branded mobile phones, to compare and compete with Samsung Galaxy S3. So, what's the difference??? Brand name. My dear, only SAMSUNG brand name.
