Samsung Galaxy S3

Designed for humans

Effortlessly smart and intuitively simple, Samsung Galaxy S3 is a new smartphone concept. It is the most human mobile device ever made.
It sees, listens, responds. It's personal. But it's for everyone. And it marks an incredible new generation of mobile phones.

Inspired by nature: the GALAXY S3's minimal and organic design is reflected in its smooth and non-linear lines of the device. Its human-centric nature provides an ergonomic and comfortable experience with enhanced usability.

With the Samsung Galaxy S3, you can view content like never before on a 4.8 inch HD Super AMOLED display, whilst an 8MP camera and an 1.9MP front camera offer a variety of intelligent camera features and face recognition related options so you can capture all moments easily and instantly. The Samsung Galaxy S3 is powered by Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and full of intuitive technology, delivering a uniquely personalised mobile experience.

Smart

Smart thinking - Adapting to the way you surf

Smart Stay

With the innovative Smart Stay feature, the Samsung GALAXY S3 automatically recognizes when you are looking at the phone, whether it is to read an e-book or browse the web. The front camera looks deep into your eyes and maintains a bright display for continued viewing pleasure. What a bright idea.

Direct Call

Samsung GALAXY S3 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.

Pop-up Play
Pop-up Play

Picture-in-picture technology lets you watch a video and do other tasks, like sending emails, or surfing the web at the same time.

S-Beam

Sharing your content with friends nearby should be easy, quick, and even fun. S Beam lets you bond instantly so you can transfer documents, contacts, pictures, music, videos, you name it. Just put the backs of your phones together, connect, share and enjoy.

What makes it more human?

Designed for humans isn't just a marketing headline. It really does sum up how you'll experience a phone that is unlike anything out there. Here are the key features:

Social tag
Social Tag

Now it's 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 streams. Once it's set, all you have to do is look at their pictures and you'll see their current status appear.

Best Photo
Best Photo

The GALAXY S3 can take first of eight shots at once and then recommends the best one. Increasing the chance of a great shot every time.

S-Voice-2
S-Voice

Why not get a response from your phone? Tell it to wake up! Even better, you can tell GALAXY S3 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 to load.

Smart Alert

When you pick up your phone, wouldn't it be nice if it let you know what has been happening since you've been gone? The GALAXY S3 knows you came back and gives you a brief vibrating nudge to inform you about missed calls and new messages. How thoughtful is that?

Allshare Play
AllShare Play

There's another way to share content on various devices. It's called AllShare Play, and it lets us work together through the magic of DLNA and Wi-Fi Direct, giving us remote access to documents and multimedia files when we work on a different screen somewhere else.

AllShare Cast

Wouldn't it be nice to mirror your phone display onto a big screen wirelessly? Now you can. AllShare Cast lets you do it, and it's perfect for gamers. After the game you are playing appears on the screen, you can even use your phone's buttons as a controller with gestures.
No wires, no fuss.

Buddy Photo-share
Buddy Photo-share

It couldn't be easier to manage and share your photos. The phone recognizes faces and links those for you, using your group profiles for guidance. Now you're once touch away from sharing with everyone instantly.

    This phone is both a beauty and a brain. I was unsure about its size at first, but after reading lots of good things, I decided that this is probably the best one in the market right now. I found it to be a bit big and heavier than my old SI and my hand got tired when I held it for a long time. However, it took me only a couple of days to get used to it. Now I don't find the size to be a problem at all. The design looks better than I had expected. As I have the blue one, I love the glossy back cover. It makes the phone look more sleek. Plus, it fits well in the hand because of the curvy sides (but it can be a tiny bit wobbly if you want to type when it lies on the desk).

    As for the software, mine comes with Jelly Bean 4.1.2, which I think is a great improvement from my old Gingerbread. With this update, you can install Google Now, which people say is better than the in-built Samsung S-Voice. Although I don't really use it much in my daily life, I'm impressed by how clever it is. The innovative Smart Stay works in a limited condition. If your face is not directly looking at the screen or if the light is not enough, it won't work. It is nice to have, but I won't depend on it. A big screen means a big keyboard, which helps my chubby finger to type faster and more accurately. The clarity and vividness of the display is stunning. I heard some complaints the dimness. I have to disagree. I don't even have to set it to half the brightness level to get a good picture.

    Regarding battery life, which is everyone's concern, I think it is pretty decent, if you know how to handle it. For example, turn off the functions that are not in use, like GPS, Wi-Fi or Mobile data. Don't set the screen too bright (it's even better if you use a darker colour wallpaper).

    Colour Name: Pebble BlueSize Name: 16GB Verified Purchase
    Amazon says nothing about this in its details, but this phone arrived with a sticker on the box saying 'European Model: This product is only compatible with a SIM-card issued from a mobile operator within Europe. (..list of countries...)' Amazon says the Note 3 is region locked, but has not yet noticed the S3. Under the comments on the Amazon site for the Note 3, there is some useful comment, and there is a lot more, generally very unhappy, to be found on the net. Basically, it seems that you need to 'activate' a new phone by fitting a European operator's SIM for the first time of using. Then the phone automatically unlocks, somehow, sometime. Samsung said on a German site that you need 5 minutes use to unlock it, but does not say how that is measured; one 5-minute call, five 1-minute calls, five minutes internet browsing,or what. Some users seem to be successful in unlocking the phone, some fail. Samsung needs to much much clearer on this - and so do Amazon. I have not yet tried another region's SIM.

    Anyway, I have deducted 2 stars because of the region locking, and another because the phone is overpriced, given the region lock and its age. I see that the price has dropped in the few days since I paid £245 and is now £233, but that is still far too much. It should be under £200.

    Another minor point. This phone accepts a micro-SIM, not the normal mini-SIM. I downloaded a conversion template, free, and used scissors to cut mine down. If I had been better prepared, I would have ordered a conversion clipper from Amazon in time to arrive with the phone. No complaint about this - just trying to be helpful to other users.

    Don't get me wrong this is a great phone however one things bugs me. The battery life. I use the phone to its full capacity. I get a reasonable number of emails per day which require answering or checking out in some form or other. I receive more phone calls than I make. Certainly at the beginning I downloaded many apps and so the fact that the battery life seemed short did not worry me inititially. However, now my use is well past the initial setup phase and still the battery does not last for a day. If I manage to get to early evening with 20 per cent I have done well and been pretty economic. As a result I bought myself a second battery and charger. The phone requires a larger capacity battery Samsung!

    Previous S2 user, before upgrading to S3 I have tried HTC one X, Nokia Lumia 710, and Iphone 4S to make sure that Android is the best operation system and Samsung is the best android handset provider. Now I am sure that it is the best smartphone.

    The only phone that you can actually compare with S3 is HTC One X, both of them are very nice phones. I am not going to explain everything here (you can find plenty of reviews and comparisons on-line) I chose S3 (I paid almost £75 more) mainly because of:

    1.Better battery,

    2.Better grip; Because both phones are relatively large, when you want to wake them up with one hand, on HTC it is almost difficult as you should press the top of the phone but on Samsung it is on the side of the phone and is hassle free (from my view). In addition to that the curves on Samsung make it to feel smaller in hand than its actual size.

    3.From my experience generally S3 is faster on everyday use and I think (not sure) it is due to the fact that HTC sense is heavier than Touchwiz. On HTC if you check your task manager regularly you can see that usually about 70-80% of the ram is used but on Samsung it is usually 50-60%

    4.I love the hardware home button on Samsung compared to touch home button on HTC.

    5.In case you want to sell your phone in future, Samsung showed historically that it does not lose value as much as HTC does.
