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 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.


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.


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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely great phone 14 Mar 2013
Colour Name:UK Sim Free - Pebble Blue
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).

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 From an iPhone 4 to a Galaxy S3 5 Oct 2012
By Woody
Colour Name:UK Sim Free - Marble White|Verified Purchase
Just to put things into perspective, I've been using this phone for around 6 weeks now and have found it to be the best phone I've owned. I had an iPhone 4 before this and although it was a great phone it has nothing on the Galaxy S3. Here are a few of my thoughts on why I did not upgrade my old iPhone 4 to an iPhone 5 and bought the Galaxy S3 instead.

Firstly to start off, if you're thinking of buying this phone and/or making the switch from IOS to Android, try it out in store which is exactly what I did before taking the plunge, then I came here and bought it on Amazon for a whole lot cheaper ;)

I chose the SGS3 mainly because of its shear hardware power. It's very fast and responsive and has some great features like the ability to switch on or off the Wi-Fi, mobile data network, GPS etc all via the pulldown notification menu instead of going through a ton of menus. The 8MP camera is great too with its HDR feature which I use often with great results. Browsing the web on this phone is beautiful with its ultra sharp bright display, this was another great reason why I chose this handset.

I also like the fact that Android is so customisable and very easy to share with other devices to boot. The best thing about using Android is that it's so much less restrictive than Apple's IOS platform, for example something which really bothered me before when using the iPhone was how useless its Bluetooth sharing options were, only allowing me to share with other IOS devices but now with Android I can send what I like to whoever I like.

As for its touch responsiveness I think it's definitely on par with my previous iPhone. I was very wary when trying it out in store and found that it didn't miss a beat unlike a friends old Android phone running Gingerbread 2.

4.0 out of 5 stars From 5 years with iPhone 23 Sep 2012
By M Smith
Colour Name:UK Sim Free - Pebble Blue
This is a review I never thought I would ever write.

After owner every iPhone variation from day one to change to another brand seemed inconceivable to me, but here we go.

Following waiting 18 months for the iPhone 5 to be released I, like many others, felt the new model just couldn't hack it any more and a change was needed.

Bring in the Galaxy S3!

Following buying a Nexus 7 and getting my first taste of the Android operating system I decided to try the new Samsung flagship phone.

I've been using it now for a couple of weeks and although it takes some getting used to the learning curve is actually very easy.

The S3 is extremely fast, the web browser and speed of surfing really does leave the iPhone way behind. The antennas are much stronger and pick up a signal for WiFi and browsing quickly.

Emails, texts etc etc are intuitive and its so much easier to attach a photo to an email than the iPhone ever was.

My only gripe is the camera. Its faster than the iPhone to shoot but there is way too much glare in bright conditions. This could be the settings but I've tried to change them, could be a software glitch, who knows but its very annoying.
Overall for anyone looking to change from an iPhone then the S3 is probably the only good option. The iPhone is still one of the best phones out there but honestly, the S3 is better!

Whether the operating system will prove to be as robust as IOS only time will tell but from revieesn the internet from long term owners its seems all is OK.
