The sequel to the Samsung Galaxy S2 is a quantum leap forwards from its predecessor. With its capacious 4.8-inch Super AMOLED HD screen, quad-core processor and advanced voice commands, it's packed with outstanding specs.
But what really sets it apart is that because the Galaxy S3 has been 'inspired by nature and designed for humans', it's intuitive and incredibly easy to use.
The first thing you notice about the Samsung Galaxy S3 is its jaw-dropping screen. Measuring a vast 4.8-inches and featuring Super AMOLED HD technology, it's custom-made for enjoying movies and games and surfing the web while you're on the go.
The real revolution that this stellar smarthone brings, though, lies in the way you interact with it and which make it one of the easiest to use gadgets ever. Not least in the form of the amazing S-Voice feature.
Like Siri for the iPhone 4S, this enables you to turn on your phone, open apps, take photos with voice commands, check the weather and much more besides with voice commands alone. It's so helpful, it's almost like having your own personal assistant.
Handier still is that the S3's Smart Stay feature. This ensures that the screen never goes into sleep mode when you don't want it to by using the phone's front-facing 1.9 megapixel camera to check for your eye movements.
That means that if you choose the S3 and you'll never again have to press the screen mid-way through a movie to wake up the display just because you haven't touched your phone for a while. Samsung really has thought of everything.
To ensure the S3 offers a real feel of zip and handles multi-tasking with ease, Samsung has equipped it with a powerful quad-core processor. With this mighty chipset on board, apps open in seconds, while web pages load in half the time, so you can really make the most of your time.
And the S3 excels as a cameraphone too, with the eight megapixel lens, delay-free shutter and LED flash combining to help you take great snaps. It's similarly outstanding at video too, recording in full HD at 1080p to bring your home movies to life.
Completing the S3's feature set is SBeam, which harness Near Field Communication technology to let you share content with other phone owners simply by touching the handsets together and a long-life 2,100mAh battery with wireless charging.
The S3 is powered by the up-to-the-minute Ice Cream Sandwich version of Android. As with all Android phones, there is a library of hundreds of thousands of free and paid-for apps and games to choose from from the Google Play download market.
