Samsung Galaxy SIII – S3 GT-I9300 Review – Main Features and Price
The smartphone market has been booming over the past few years to such an extent that it is difficult to find the device that will meet your expectations for tech specs, price and durability without going through dozens of reviews and products. However, since there are so many choices available, you can rest assured that with the right research you will definitely find the smartphone that fits your lifestyle and requirements best, not to mention price affordability.
Samsung Galaxy SIII/S3 GT-I9300 factory unlocked phone (international version) is one of the most popular smartphones today, currently at the top of Amazon’s Best Seller list for unlocked handsets. Samsung Galaxy SIII is the updated version of S2, which although it brought a pleasing design, it doesn’t stand the comparison with the S3, which is according to all reviews the best Android phone on the market (well, at least for the moment).
- Samsung S3 features the NFC phone-based payment feature
- S Beam allows you to send large files over a Wi-Fi connection
- You get two years of free online storage up to 50GB via Dropbox
- Access to exclusive apps, others than those in Google Play Store, via Samsung’s Kies software
- The 8MP camera on Samsung SIII offers smile detection and face recognition but unless you’ve got the right light these are faulty
- S Voice, the Samsung alternative to Apple’s Siri, is disappointing
- Battery life is around 9 hours with extensive usage of the HD Amoled screen
Samsung Galaxy SIII’s tech specs are impressive to begin with and it’s really no surprise why so many consumers would rather buy this handset instead of iPhone. Galaxy S3 GT-I9300 runs on a powerful processor (a quad-core 1.4GHz Arm Cortex-A9 and 1GB RAM) needed after all to make sure the handset will deliver a speedy performance and a compelling user experience. Add to that Google’s Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich OS (or higher) and you’ll find yourself holding a powerful beast in your hands. Also, Samsung incorporated its TouchWiz interface to the handset to make sure everything moves fast even when you’re running a handful of apps.
Samsung Galaxy SIII GT-I9300 was released June 21st 2012 in the United States and being made available with all the four major carriers at huge discounts it immediately became a top seller. Without discounts and special offers, Samsung Galaxy SIII is an expensive smartphone. The factory unlocked handset is listed at $899.00 but actual prices range from $515.00 to $585.99 on Amazon, while a two-year contract with an US carrier will drop the price to $200 for the 16GB version. Buy the unlocked version of the Samsung Galaxy SIII only if you know how to reap the benefits and if you can afford to pay at least $500.
