A simple white box

It’s fascinating that after all the hype, excitement, and buzz it all came down to a simple white carton box for the Samsung Galaxy S3. It’s actually fitting since given the inspiration and zen-like theme of the phone.

The simplest box you’ll ever find for a high-end smartphone these days, lol.

To open the box just remove the tape at the bottom and pull the top lid upwards.

Nothing beats the feeling of unboxing something as gorgeous as the Galaxy S3.

If there’s one word to describe the feeling of seeing the Galaxy S3 for the first time, it’s “BOOM”. There’s a certain kind of thrill as you pause and gaze at it for a couple of seconds before you actually reach out to touch it and slowly lift it up from the box. I rarely use the word “marvelous” but that’s actually also apt because you will marvel at how beautiful, how light, and how thin it is.

There’s something about the whiteness that makes it sezzy, haha!
The Galaxy S3 is definitely one of the thinnest and lightest smartphones you’ll ever find.
8-MP camera at the back. The back plate is removable which means you can replace the battery if you run out. Coolness!
Here’s what the back looks like without the cover. Battery in the middle, micro-SIM and micro-SD at the bottom
Gorgeous 4.8-inch screen!
What else is in the box? Charger, USB to micro USB cable, earphones, and extra ear tips.
