    Intuitive, stylish and simple to use, the Samsung Galaxy S III smartphone delivers a personalized, seamless mobile experience that helps your day run smoothly - whether it's time for work, family or play.
    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 5 out of 5 by big screen,light,easy to control i am a 46 year old male allways had a phone that just rings and texts but now WOW i have caught up and woken up,its even easy for me to use and navigate even with big fingers,glad i got this smart phone im over the moon with it and it looks so posh in red. 06 October 2012
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Samsung always The features are amazing. Love the camera. Storage is amazing. It has started slowing down on me now but I think thats due to the amount I have on it. Highly recommend to anyone. Easy to use too. Even my nan could use this stylish and affordable phone. 03 June 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by EASE OF USE I have always had Samsung phones and am not too smart phone literate but this phone is lovely to use and the camera amazing. Lots of useful apps available. Whether young or old its a phone anyone can use. Easy on the eye and comfortable in your hand. 03 November 2013
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome phone, not so the battery I don't know if I use my phone more than the norm or not, I also switched off most of the updates and stuff, however my phone won't go for 24 hours without a full recharge. Apart from this little (sometimes tedious) issue the phone is A.W.E.S.O.M.E. 19 October 2012
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing phone. Ok so I have only had it for a few hours, but already I have been blown away by the features and ease of use. My last phone was an apple iPhone, and this just knocks it out of the stadium in terms of screen real-estate, speed, ease of use and looks. 30 May 2012
    Rated 5 out of 5 by The best at this moment in time Love my new white S3. Absolutely fantastic performance, looks and screen. The only negatives is I'd prefer pure Android like on the Nexus and secondly Google Wallet is not available on my network (UK Three)! When will I be able to use Wallet/NFC? 09 June 2012
    Rated 4 out of 5 by I am Loving it The product is designed with people in Mind and it puts people at ease and being a S II user i was bit Skeptic but the S III stands out and proved it self smooth design and Interface is really good and can be used by any one without confusion 29 June 2012
    Rated 5 out of 5 by its good its very good as compare as iphone 4s It just gets us. Samsung’s Galaxy S III goes beyond smart. It’s more understanding. It’s the little things, like staying awake when you look at it and keeping track of loved ones. Fast and vivid, it... 25 June 2012
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Samsung Galaxy S111 Mobile Phone This is one of the best phones I have ever owned. I have had a few over the years.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by The Galaxy SIII takes mobiles to a whole new level!

This device is beyond Brilliant - you should get one......nuff said! 25 June 2012
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality & Speed unmatched. This is the best mobile phone on the market at present, as I have the iphone 4s & just sold the HTC One X. Images look sharp and can sync with your smart tv in an instant through wifi! A great upgrade from the S2. 06 June 2012

    Can this phone out of the box enlarge text and pictures for a person who has difficulty reading small text and seeing small pictures? E.G. when typing or reading sms, email, and looking at the web?
    Or would apps need installing from google play to enable this phone to do this?

    Answer: 
    The phone allows the font size to be adjusted to a persons needs. enlarging pictures and surfing the web can be enlarged by spreading two fingers across the text. also when you would like to send a sms you can enlarge the text by using the volume up and down button as this works for me.
