Samsung Galaxy S III is a high-end phone launched in 2012, which counts with a comfortable 4.8-inches touch-screen, a Quad-Core processor clocking at 1400 MHz, an 8 MP back-facing camera and a 1.9 megapixels front-facing camera.

Samsung ships this phone with a high performance Quad-Core processing unit ticking at 1400 megahertz, bundled in the Samsung Exynos 4 (4412) chip with only 1 GB of RAM memory which is a bit poor considering this cellphone's impressive processing power. Graphic rendering often uses lots of CPU processing time, so this phone also has an extra ARM Mali-400 MP4 GPU speeding at 266 megahertz to take care of them, leaving the processor free for other tasks. A key aspect of the S III is its inmense 64 GB internal storage and an SD card slot, which allows the user to install hundreds of applications and even the largest games available nowadays without having to worry about filling it.

This cellphone is sold in multiple colors like black, gray, brown, pink, blue, red and white. About its body design materials, this phone is majorly made with Plastic. The S III has a wonderful design, with a thickness of just 0.34 inches. Though this phone is only 5.38" long, it is still able to fit a a 4.8 inches display. This phone is much lighter than what you expect from a cellphone this size.

Samsung designed this cellphone with a beautiful 4.8 inches display, and a resolution of 1280 x 720 (HD), giving this cellphone a perfect graphic quality. This display uses Super AMOLED capacitive technology, with a brightness of 300 candela/m2 and can detect multi touch gestures.

The S III features two cameras, an 8 mega-pixels back-facing camera and a 1.9 mega-pixels front facing camera. This cellphone also captures videos up to 1920x1080 (Full HD) at 30 fps. In addition, the camera counts with many valuable characteristics like auto-focus, flash, digital image stabilization, fast burst mode, face detection shooting, HDR mode and geo tagging.

The S III includes Wi-Fi connection (which it can share with other devices around, acting as a mobile hotspot), HSPA+ 4G connection type, which is not so fast as LTE-A or LTE 4G networks or 3G fast connectivity, over HSDPA, HSUPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. The Samsung Galaxy S III works with a Micro SIM card to use GSM services.

The S III has a big 2100 mAh Li-Ion removable battery, which isn't very promising for a phone like this. Samsung informs a talk time of 22.5 hs and a stand by time of 830 hours for this cellphone.

This cellphone also comes with some interesting features like Bluetooth (allows communication with other phones, computers and accessories), GPS and NFC, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

This cellphone is very well priced considering it's an amazing cellphone and it costs just $ 215. No matter if you want it to take many pictures, will use it as a work phone, want a social phone or will use it as a gaming cellphone, this phone is probably the right choice .
