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