Samsung’s Galaxy S3 was their third smartphone offering in as many years. It comes with an HD display which is both large and vibrant. It also comes with the 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich design, which means you won’t have any trouble making out what’s on your screen.
Speaking of which, this model is 4.8 inches in size and has an HD super AMOLED display, packing 1,280×720 pixels in resolution. This screen is protected by Gorilla Glass 2, a cover material that is one of the thinnest and lightest on the market. It’s also said to allow colors to shine brighter.
The 8-megapixels this phone’s camera can support put the Samsung Galaxy S3 right in line with other competitors, like the iPhone s5. There is also a front-facing one that is good for 1.9 megapixels.
Samsung built the Galaxy S3 with a dual-core processor, placing it leagues ahead of its predecessor. It can also run with either HSPA+ or 4 LGTE support, so you’ll have plenty of opportunity to put that processor to work. Furthermore, the memory is beyond what just about anyone will need and there’s another 2GB of RAM to be used too.
Samsung made the casing on this phone out of a light plastic. So this device is probably the lightest you’ll ever hold, relative to how much power it’s packing. It features a physical home button on the front, which is different from the soft-touch navigation buttons Android phones usually have. Holding the home button down will bring up recent applications you have used. On either side of this button are the back and menu buttons.
The affordability of this phone across carriers and its many features easily explain its popularity. While it doesn’t pack a ton of frills, it comes with plenty of what you need.
