Samsung Galaxy S3 Review: In Depth

5.0
Verdict: "Samsung Galaxy S3", words that send irrational thrills and tingles down fan's spines. Are we fans? No. In fact, we're not overly taken with Touchwiz Nature UX in terms of look and feel despite being able to appreciate all of the widgets and improvements over Touchwiz 4.0.
Pros: Ingenuitive smart features, Good battery performance, Great storage options
Cons: S-Voice is gimmicky, Touchwiz won't suit all, Back cover very flimsy

Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE review Review

4.0
Verdict: The Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE has more memory than the original S3, as well as a new titanium hue and support for fast 4G data. Although 4G data speeds are very impressive however, the phone and its associated 4G contract are expensive, and battery life suffers too.
Pros: Fast data speeds over 4G, Stunning screen, Small improvement in performance over standard S3, Jelly Bean is faster and slicker than ICS, Good camera
Cons: Short battery life, Very expensive, Outperformed by the cheaper Google Nexus 4

Verdict: The Samsung Galaxy S3 is, without a doubt, a great phone. Samsung have clearly put a lot of work into bringing a number of great features to the Galaxy S3, but there are also a number of issues.

Australia's first Samsung Galaxy S3 review

4.5
Verdict: It wouldn't be wrong to say that Samsung's update to last year's excellent Galaxy S2 is one of the most talked about and hyped phone for 2012. With ten million preorders internationally, the Samsung Galaxy S3 is already a winner for the Korean company.

Samsung Galaxy S3 vs iPhone 4S review: we pit the latest Android smartphone against Apple's best ever phone

4.0
Verdict: It's fair to say that for all Google's Android hoopla and Microsoft's Windows Phone drum-beating, there really hasn't been much competition in the smartphone market since Apple first launched the first-generation iPhone. In short, Apple has consistently felt ahead of the game.
Pros: Nice piece of hardware, extremely light, super large screen, some interesting interface ideas
Cons: Android isn't as good as iOS, Google's Play store isn't as good as the App Store, some interface ideas are a bit strange

Samsung Galaxy S III

4.8
Verdict: In technology, and unlike Hollywood movies, a sequel is expected to be significantly better than the former. Rumours ran rampant online in the weeks leading up to the official Galaxy S III (GS3) announcement, but does it have what it takes to be king of the Androids?
Pros: Outstanding battery life. Great display. Zippy performance. Great suite of features
Cons: No HDMI port. Photo quality is a small step back from the GS2

Samsung Galaxy S3 4G

3.8
Verdict: When you boil it right down, it's a pretty straight trade-off between 4G speeds and battery life, and that will ultimately be your decision to make. For us, this is a bad swap. There's no point in having blazing-fast data speeds if you have no battery life to power the phone, and 12 hours of...

better than your average free phone.

4.6
Verdict: got the phone in November an sale for $50. I still feel like I got ripped off. All I got was an entry level phone with a very large screen. for a so-called high end phone you get a camera that is comparable to the flagship phone's of 2009, in a cheaply built phone.
Pros: the front half is built strong, better than average battery, gorilla glass
Cons: can't turn off camera sound effects, cheap built on the back half of the phone, volume and power button push to easily. prop the phone up on its side for a video and the phone own weight will mute or power down the phone, BSI sensors for camera are cheap.
