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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best smartphone 8 Jun 2012
By Reza
Colour Name:UK Sim Free - Pebble Blue
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Initially disappointed but now love it! 17 Jun 2012
Colour Name:UK Sim Free - Marble White
I've had my iPhone 3GS for over two years now so it was time to upgrade. I felt there was no point paying the premium for an iPhone contract for a technically inferior product, so an S3 was duly ordered.

Never having used Android before, it took a while to get used to. There are some really basic oddities out of the box. Why can't you turn off the background image? (I had to draw a black rectangle) Why is the minimum brightness (1/255) still so bright? At night it was ridiculous. Thankfully this was fixed by downloading an app called "Lux", but surely this should be built into the device?

Anyway, once I'd got past the slight nuances of Android I began to download apps and widgets (a new novelty for a previous iPhone user). I had to learn from you-tube how to do certain things, such as screen shot (swipe palm left to right) and how to access the camera really quickly (setting up the icons on the lock screen is buried in the settings->security menu). Now I know what I'm doing the phone is an absolute dream!

The screen is magnificent. The camera is magnificent inside and outside. I can unlock the screen and take a photo within 3 seconds, brilliant!

I have noticed a few slow downs which is surprising, but nothing like my old 3GS which was basically a dog but to be fair, pretty old).

My only gripe is that the construction lets it down and it's also a bit slippery in dry hands. I've had to buy a soft silicone case, but that's no bad thing for extra protection.

In conclusion, Android is not as intuitive as iOS out the box, but once everything is configured correctly it completely blows the iPhone away. A good value S3 contract seems to be at least five pounds a month cheaper than an equivalent iPhone contract.

Colour Name:UK Sim Free - Pebble Blue
Update 14/11/13 - Reflecting some of the comments below, at £268 this device is overpriced. Google via Motorola have released the Moto G, while the screen is smaller, the specs bar the SD card slot are very similar and it is nearly half price at £135. The Nexus 5 is only £32 more, and has a 1080P screen, better CPU and RAM. I'm amazed how fast the market has changed in 15 months, but at this price I can't give the phone 5 stars any longer. If it drops to below £200 I could change it to 4 stars, but the Moto G would leave you a lot of change for a dedicated camera or MP3 player and a good mobile device.

Update 24/05/13 - I've sold the S3 and replaced it with the HTC One that I got free on contract. The S3 was definitively the mobile king of 2012, but for 2013 the new king is the HTC One, not the S4.

Update 13/06/12 - If you head over to Blog Clove, you will see a PS3/XBOX 360 controller, USB keyboard and most importantly USB storage in the form of flash and hard disks being able to be connected directly to the device! Once I've managed to try out storage I will update the review.

Update 17/06/12 - USB OTG works, means you can connect to a usb stick or hard drive to use additional storage. You'll need a micro usb adapter connect, but media files work flawlessly.

My Galaxy S2 was lost a few weeks ago and I decided to ditch my contract and go for the S3. My only regret in buying the phone was that I didn't wait until the 64GB version came out, I'll explain why a bit later. Here are the improvements over the S2 and should answer some questions people have about the phone. Please note, this requires a microsim if you have a standard sim.

Positives:
1.
