Thanks to Etisalat Sri Lanka, I was able to get ma hands on the Samy’s latest flagship phone, the GalaxyS3. And here it is! You may already know that the S3 comes with a Quad-core 1.4GHz processor coupled with Mali-400MP graphics processing unit and 1GB of RAM, which I believe is partly responsible for the best browsing experience that you can get on a smartphone.

Please note Mobitel was not included in this speedtest as I did not have [...]
