The long awaited arrival of the Samsung Galaxy S III is finally here and for those of you who are considering an upgrade this may be the phone you have been waiting for. Following the success of the Galaxy S II, expectations have been high and this phone certainly delivers.
One of the first things you are drawn towards when admiring the S III is the screen, which is bigger than that of the S2. Though, with a narrower bezel, the handset doesn’t feel any bigger in the hand, so you’re getting the best of both worlds.
A great addition to the Galaxy S III is another function, the innovate Smart Stay feature that ensures that the phone stays lit whenever you’re looking at it. The function recognises your eyes and will adjust brightness so long as you’re looking at the phone.
Another cool new feature of the S III is ‘S-Beam’, which allows you to share everything from documents to videos with other S III users by simply placing the phones back to back.
The S III comes in a choice of two colours, ‘marble white’ and ‘pebble blue’ and coupled with its slim design makes for a very aesthetically pleasing piece of kit. The HD Super AMOLED display has a high resolution at 720 x 1280 (HD), making watching streaming web content a real pleasure.
Another good addition to the S III is the direct call function; if you are in the process of texting someone and opt for calling them instead, all you need to do is lift the handset up to your ear and the phone will do the rest.
The camera has an 8 megapixel rear facing camera and a 1.9 front facing camera and with its best photo function will automatically take 8 pics, thus ensuring you’re not caught blinking.
