Samsung Galaxy S3 Marble White Overview

Please Note: You may also be interested in the Samsung Galaxy S4

Samsung Galaxy S3 White front The Galaxy S II confirmed Samsung are leading the way in Android powered smartphones. Trying to re-crate such success with a successor is a challenge that any company would find daunting but the Galaxy S III is a worthy replacement.

The S3 from Samsung takes the fundamental hardware components that makes a phone great and paired it with the latest Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) operating system and enhanced it to make this without doubt the new sought after phone.

A definite rival to the iPhone the S3 is designed for humans. We have all had bad experiences with a phone but the new Galaxy is designed to feel more natural, more intuitive and all round simpler to use so there are less if any bad experiences.

Countless enhancements go beyond what most of us would consider needed improving form the Galaxy S II. The S3 has rounded edges and a HyperGlaze coating that makes it feel comfortable, robust and stylish when in the hand.

The Android operating system gives you the power and flexibility you need in your personal life and has the necessary functions to work with you and meet your requirements if used for business.

From changing the home screen layout, to changing the ringtones the process is simple. Easily expand the capability of the device by downloading applications from Google Play store to make the device more personal and productive to you. Samsung Galaxy S III White tilt

Standard features such as GPS navigation with Google Maps, Gmail, text messaging, phone functionality, video calling and web browsing are all features which are present and should not be overlooked. However the S3 goes beyond the basics to offer something more.

Browse the web, stream media or share content through one of the devices many wireless connectivity options. WiFi (802.11b/g/n), 3G, Bluetooth (version 4) are just the start. NFC, S Beam and AllShare Cast make the wireless world more of reality. Maybe we should mention here, that wireless charging is an option on the Galaxy S3!!

Quad-core processing power means there will be no lacklustre performance from the S3. Game playing or busy typing out emails the performance of the S3 is second to none.

Add a 4.8” Super AMOLED capacitive touch screen and together it’s a dream gaming device or simply a phone that you wont mind using for watching movies or photos back on. State of the art technology gives a crisp, bright and immersive experience. New technology means that the backlight on the screen wont turn off until you have finished using the device. You will no doubt understand how frustrating it can be when the backlight goes off even though you are still reading things on the screen.

An 8 megapixel camera is found on the back of the Galaxy S III and can record HD video at 30 frames per second. There is too a front facing 1.9 megapixel camera. There are plenty of added features here too.

Where are you going to store all those photos and videos? Well the SG3 comes with 16GB of on board memory as well as having a microSD card slot that supports cards up to 64GB in capacity. Add too 50GB of FREE Dropbox cloud storage and there is no end of potential storage.

All of these features consume power but a 2100mAh battery will keep you going as long as possible but if you do need to replace the battery you can, because its removable, not fixed like the HTC One X, Motorola RAZR MAXX and more.

All of this in a device that weighs just 133g and is 8.6mm thick – simply superb.

There is so much to the Samsung Galaxy S3 there is more to it than meets the eye. The following are some of the added enhancements you will find on the Galaxy S3.

Best photo - With the S3 you can automatically take a burst of 8 pictures and choose the best one. No more missing that perfect shot.

Buddy photo share - Want your phone to intelligently recognise your friends faces in photos you have captured? If the answer is yes, then the Galaxy S III does this too. It recognises a friends face and allows you to share photos with them instantly.

Social tag- Social networks can be so important in keeping up to date with your friends. Social tag keeps track of loved ones, friends and family, showing their social network status as you glance at their photos.

Smart stay - No more frustrating tapping of the screen or power button to put the backlight back on. The Galaxy S3 knows when you are still looking at the display, so it wont turn off until you are finished.

Direct call - The Galaxy S III is intelligent enough to know when you want to talk. You may be texting a friend and think, it might just be easier to call. Simply lift the phone to your ear and it will call the contact.

Smart alert - It is all to easy to miss a call or a message because we may be distracted. A gentle reminder is what we often need. With the S3 a Smart alert feature means that the phone will vibrate to give you a little nudge to check your phone for missed calls of messages. It is a simple feature like this that makes a smartphone smart.

SGS3 White side

S Voice - A voice command system that responds to your words such as take a photo, wake up and answer. Making small and simple tasks that bit easier.

S Beam - It is Google Beam taken one step further. Place a Samsung Galaxy S III back to back with another Galaxy S III and you can transfer, without wires, pictures, music, videos and more.

Pop up play - More useful than you may think this feature allows you to do two things at once. Pop up play allows you to watch and move video content around your screen in a box whilst you do other things such as text, read a web page or respond to an email.

AllShare Cast - Your trip round Africa has come to an end. You captured some great images and now you want to share them. Whilst the 4.8" screen is big, it might not be big enough. Simply share it without wires to a big screen and use your Galaxy S III as a controller.

Samsung Galaxy SIII AllShare Cast Dongle

AllShare Play - You have no doubt left a file on a home computer when you are at work or thought it would be really handy if I could access something that you have stored on your home computer when somewhere else. With Samsungs AllShare Play you can access documents and multimedia files remotely, allowing you to achieve what you could not before.

Complete the story. A full range of official Samsung accessories from cases, to screen protectors to docks are available for the Galaxy S III.

Seamless and intuitive this is a phone designed for humans, thinking and working with you to give you the best mobile experience. It is today’s most powerful smartphone.

I've got the Samsung Galaxy S3 on Three with the One Plan. I've upgraded from an HTC Wildfire so it is a massive step up for me in smartphone terms and I'm blown away with how much it can do. Only thing it won't do yet is make me a cup of tea, and I have three children for that anyway

So far I am revelling in 16GB of storage (all the apps and games I can download! And still loads of space left!), lovely screen, fast interface and it is nice and loud. I like watching live tv on it via the TV Catchup mobile site, and enjoyed the video pop out feature the other night so I could watch the football and use Tweetdeck at the same time!

Only glitch so far for me was the fact the alarm I had carefully set for every weekday didn't go off this morning. On closer inspection before a rather rushed school run, I discovered that was user error - last Monday night I set the alarm for each week day but neglected to notice the 'tick here to repeat every week' box... never had a phone that asked me to do that before, oops!

I have received this phone and in one day the microphone has failed. Repair has managed in 30 dollars.

Clove Response: That is just unlucky. Very few arrive from factory not working.
