    The Galaxy S III offers one of the most sophisticated interactive mobile experiences to date. You'll be able to send photos, videos and information easier and faster than ever; stay better connected to friends and family members from wherever you are; and run multiple functions on your phone at the same time.

    Product Features

    • Simple, instant sharing keeps you connected
      The Galaxy S III has enhanced features that both you and your contacts will enjoy. It's designed to make sharing easy and more direct so your friends and family can experience every moment with you, regardless of your location.
    • Connect through touch
      With S beam, just place two Galaxy S III phones back-to-back and you can transfer photos, videos, documents and more. In just three minutes you can successfully share a 1 GB video file - it's fast, easy, and you don't even need a Wi-Fi or cellular signal.
    • Send pictures in a flash
      Thanks to buddy photo share, the Galaxy S III recognizes the faces of your friends, so it can share photos with them right away. And with share shot, you can send photos to all your party guests so everyone leaves with snapshots of the event.
    • Access content on multiple devices
      Through AllShare play, you can share files with other devices and access those files on various devices, such as documents or multimedia files between your Galaxy S III phone and a tablet, PC or television. Share important files or show off vacation photos and videos whenever you need to, wherever you are, with whomever you'd like. With AllShare group cast on the Galaxy S III and a Wi-Fi network, you can share and collaborate on documents, presentations or images in real-time with multiple friends or co-workers without loading the file separately.
    • Made for intelligent and intuitive interaction
      Smart enough to detect your face, voice and motions, the Galaxy S III provides a more convenient and natural way for you to interact so it fits seamlessly into your daily routine.
    • Let your eyes control the display
      Thanks to the smart stay feature, the screen display will remain bright as long as you're looking at the phone. Set it down and it dims instantly. Because the front-facing camera can identify your eyes - while reading an e-book or browsing the web, for instance - it recognizes how you are using your phone and provides a bright display accordingly.
    • Tell your phone what to do
      The S Voice feature enables the Galaxy S III to actually listen and respond to your words: tell it to wake up, snooze, take a photo, answer a call, send a text message or play a favorite song.
    • Go from text to talking in an instant
      If you're text messaging with a friend, you can easily switch to calling them instead with the direct call feature. Simply lift the phone to your ear, and it automatically dials their number.
    • Don't miss a message
      If you've been away from your phone, the smart alert feature will give you a vibrating nudge to let you know about missed calls and messages.
    • Control your world with just a tap
      Easy-to-use Samsung TecTiles programmable NFC tags can be customized to launch apps, send text messages, share contact information, change phone settings and more, with an NFC-enabled Galaxy smartphone.
    • Powerful performance in a sleek design
      Built for enhanced usability, the Galaxy S III is packed with powerful features in a form that's designed to fit comfortably in your hands, whether you're making a call, text messaging, playing a game or watching a video.
    • Enjoy a design that fits your life
      Although its stylish look will surely turn heads, its thoughtful, practical design elements, such as the ergonomic grip, smooth lines and gentle curves, are what make it feel like a natural fit for any lifestyle.
    • Immerse yourself in an amazing display
      View content like never before with a 4.8" HD super AMOLED screen that has an ultrafast response time and displays gorgeous, saturated colors. The large viewing area and higher resolution is great for every task, from viewing a document to watching a movie.
    • Experience outstanding multitasking performance
      Powered by Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich, the Galaxy S III allows you to do two things at once with the pop up play feature. Now you can watch HD videos while you email or text - no need to close or restart videos when running other tasks at the same time.
    • Capture precious moments like a pro
      With the enhanced 8-megapixle camera and a zero-lag shutter speed, your photos will be transformed - and you'll capture moving objects without delay. The burst shot function helps you take pictures like a professional, with the ability to instantly capture 20 continuous shots, while best photo takes eight pictures and chooses the best one for you. Plus, the 1.9-megapixle front-facing camera records in HD and puts you in the video.

    Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 319 reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Just...WOW! Amazingly and Intuitively Special! There is that little something that makes it different from other phones. Android is the sole gem in this device, and the UI is dazzling and very fast! It beats the iPhone with no doubt! Good Job Samsung! S Voice is good, I hope it supports more languages in future updates. Apps are amazing, Screen size (4.8") is the perfect size, any smaller or bigger would ruin it. That is why I prefer the S3 better than Note. S Voice is the best and the 8MP is good, Smart stay is also another helpful feature, it gives me a better experience without the phone locking by itself while reading something long. Battery = Just...WOW!! 14 June 2012
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Recommend to a friend, I recommend to everyone! I do wonder if half of these negative reviews that have been submitted are false. I have had this phone now 4/5 Months and I am seriously impressed with it. Battery life is the only niggle I have as I am a heavy data user, and it only lasts a day (Have to charge it each night before bed). Thats about the only improvement I would make but then the phone does so much Im not totally surprised by the battery life. Seriously glad I didn't wait for the IP5, as from what I have seen is lacking serious features and the OS just isn't as smooth despite what they say. Simply put its a fantastic phone! and I truly believe I have the best phone on the market at present. 23 September 2012
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Can't get off it! The SIII is just amazing. Starting from the screen, the blacks are unbelievably deep while the colours are vibrant and look amazing. Video playback is great on such a big screen which just slips into the pocket with ease. The UI is smooth and everything just flies open with no problem. Games are no issue and connectivity around the house to my other products are no issue, even fruity products can get connected with this which was a great plus. Sure, the battery gets sucked down, but the device is so fun that it is no surprise, I can hardly stop playing games or finding out what else this sucker can do! Love it! 28 November 2012
    Rated 4 out of 5 by The large screen makes all the difference. This is a fantastic phone with a nice large screen that's perfect for video on the go, you can even change the colour saturation to your liking. The only down side i find with the screen is that it just isn't bright enough for watching films when their are dark scenes in the movie. Web browsing is great in landscape mode and at times the screen could be a little to bright, but that's ok as you can just go into the browser settings and lower it, but after the last update that feature has gone from the browser settings, and so has the ability to make the screen as bright as you like when surfing the web. If i now start on what i really love about this phone i'll be here all day. 26 September 2012
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Magnificent! I think it's brilliant. I had the Galaxy S2 and thought it was fast. Got the Galaxy S3 and WOW, just WOW. Super quick. I also like the design! I really like it! Screen size, perfect. Any bigger is a no no for me, 4.8inches if the perfect size. The camera is really good, zero lag is true! This device replaced my iPad, hardly use it anymore now. As for battery, It is great! Lasts all day, and when charging, it charges really fast compared to my previous Galaxy S2. I watched a YouTube video in HD, and my Mum was amazed at how clear the screen was. The features like Pop-up Play and Smart Stay work really well. No lag when playing a video as well as using the internet, texting or gaming. 11 June 2012
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing Phone! I've had this device for a few weeks now and all I can say is that I love it, It's the best phone I've ever used and it's also the best in the market. I've chosen this phone because of the features and the Good things I've heard about the older S2 and also because it runs android, and Samsung are very good with keeping their devices updated with latest OS Can't wait for the next update (JellyBean). If your looking for a nice, fast and feature packed phone this is the phone for you! The only bad thing I can say about the phone is that the build Quality could of been better for the price of the phone but other than that it's a great device and the best from the other phones I've used in the past. 25 August 2012
    Rated 1 out of 5 by GOOD PHONE IF YOU LIVE IN A PADDED ENVIRONMENT This phone is advertised as being "designed for humans". After having had this handset for only three weeks I believe this slogan is laughable. Humans do not live in an environment which has cushioned flooring throughout, and samsung obviously have not realised this throughout their design and production of this product. Beware if you drop this phone from anything above a couple of inches onto any surface other than carpet (unless its onto mattress) the screen will shatter. This will then VOID any warranty you have with the phone and will cost hundreds of pounds to repair. Be warned. 04 September 2012
    Rated 1 out of 5 by Poor performance after 11 months My individual experience - Great for the first 6 months, gradually performance has got worse and worse, I have difficulty accessing contacts and various apps as the screen freezes. When someone calls or texts, I can't always see who it is, it just shows a number. The battery lasts for around 12 hours with little usage, less if used more regularly. I sometimes don't receive texts that have been sent to me. Why I dislike it - It was one of the most expensive phones on the market at the time yet the price tag doesn't reflect the problems I am now experiencing 11 months after purchase. 18 January 2014
