Wireless connectivity - 3G

Weight - 133g

Some Features:
S Voice - Why not get a response from your phone? Tell it to wake up! Even better, you can tell the GALAXY S III to turn off the alarm for a few minutes and let yourself sleep a bit more. Answer your phone (or reject a call), turn your music up (or down), and even tell the camera when to shoot.

Social tag - Now it is even easier to keep track of friends and loved ones. Social tag lets you link the faces in your photo album with their social media profiles.

Direct call - Samsung GALAXY S III even knows when you want to talk. When you are messaging someone and decide to call them instead, simply lift the phone to your ear and Direct call will dial their number for you. No more fumbling through call logs or contacts. Let GALAXY S III do the work for you.

Smart stay - With the innovative Smart stay feature, GALAXY S III automatically recognises when you are looking at the phone, whether it is to read an e-book or browse the web. The front camera recognises your eyes and maintains a bright display for continued viewing pleasure.

Pop up play - Doing things simultaneously on GALAXY S III 's 4.8" HD Super AMOLED screen is easy and fun. With Pop up play and the powerful Quad-Core Processor, you can watch an HD video in another window while sending an email or text simultaneously. Resize the video, drag it to where you want on the screen, and chat with your friends or surf the web. Don't miss any of the action.

Best photo - Samsung GALAXY S III knows your best look, making sure you never miss a smile or catch someone when they are blinking. It automatically takes a burst of 8 photos making a continuous scene and will choose the best one of the bunch for you.

I currently own a Samsung s5, but for just under 4 years I was a Samsung s3 owner / user and I could not fault it. I loved my s3. I thought it was such a fantastic little phone. It was comfortable to hold even though they are quite a large handset. It was easy to use...so so easy to use. And it seemed really robust. I do not know how many times I dropped that phone, almost daily through out its life, and it just kept on going!

In comparison to many later model phones, this ones camera does not have as many mega pixels, but in my personal opinion I was always very happy with the quality of the photos it did take. I found that the photos always appeared clear and the colours will always bright. And you had many different photo features too: panoramic, zoom, burst, best photo and more. Plus it was easy to navigate around the camera features. And of course from the phones home screen you can get directly to your camera.

The video function is also just as easy to use. The phone has a flash and this also operates as a permanent video light when using video, this I thought was a handy feature, especially when you are looking for something in the dark lol or taking a video of kids blowing out birthday cake candles lol

The phone is packed full of features, and you can go to the play store and download any apps that take your fancy. My kids used to download so many games, but never remove any, and it seemed to cope just fine with all the apps they would full it up with. It seems to have a lot of storage memory capacity. This is a great phone. I love the s3 even though I no longer own it. I found it to be a really great and durable phone.

Like most handsets though, the initial rrp upon release was imo over the top. But being one of the top phone produces in the world I guess they can do that. I wouldn't pay retail for one, but then I wouldn't pay the high price any phone is first sold for. I always wait until they come down in price haha. Its a good phone though, one of my favorites ever owned Smile Icon

I absolutely love the whole samsung range, its a well known trusted brand and they make awesome products you know are going to last.

The samsung galaxy S3 is easy to use and the things you can do with this device is endless. It has an awesome camera and it is easy to use. Takes nice, clear photos and it is easy to edit them, crop them or add a filter to the photos to give it a nice effect. It also has a front camera which makes it easy to take the popular selfies, and use apps such as facetime & skype.

The screen size is decent which makes it easy to read your texts, emails, e-books etc.. You are also apply to adjust the text size and font which is awesome and make''s it easier to read if you need the bigger font. The battery lasts pretty well for a smart phone. There are so many cases and things available to customize your samsung galaxy S3 which is always fun. The list of features is endless from radio to internet to making phone calls. This phone has it all and is a great smart phone on a budget.

I love my Samsung S3, it is like I have the whole world and more in this slim line device. I had never owned a 'smart phone' before so it was with great excitement I unpackaged this. Initially I was surprised at the size of it but it fits really comfortably in my hand.

I admit to feeling a little in 'over my head' with this amazing device. It seemed so much more 'alive' and 'intelligent' than me but man oh man do I love it now. There is so much I can do from texting, talking, playing games, surfing the net, using gps and way way more.

It is like having a mini computer, photo lab, science lab all tucked in my pocket. I have had it about 6 months now and every day I learn something new (im not one for manual reading). It is fast, funky, reliable, durable and just super fun to own.
