Another Quad-core powered Android

Early reviews show the interface of the Samsung Galaxy S3 to be smooth. The 1.4GHz quad-core processor is really doing its job, providing the needed power and performance to drive this super phone. Samsung Galaxy S III runs the Google Android 4.0 OS (Ice Cream sandwich) with all the new software features it brings to the table.
