Galaxy S III
RRP: $799 depending on contract
Reviewer: Cpl Nick Wiseman
THE Samsung Galaxy S III is the
latest arrival in the Android world
running version four of the operat-
ing system code-named ice cream
sandwich and featuring a massive
12.24cm HD super amoled screen
boasting impressive visuals.
Measuring 136.6mm long and
70.6mm wide, you could be mis-
taken thinking we're heading back
in time going back to the days of
carrying a brick around, but being
wafer thin the phone feels amazing-
ly light and very snug in the hand.
Straight out of the box the phone
is a multimedia powerhouse, able
to play most current popular video
and audio files with no need for
conversion. It also features a front-
mounted camera, which comes in
handy for taking a quick snap of
yourself and for video calls, which
work very well with no noticeable
lag.The eight megapixel camera at
the rear features the standard flash
and autofocus and is capable of cap-
turing full HD 1080p video. After
initial tests I found it to rival point-
and-shoot cameras I've owned.
A multimedia powerhouse
DSLR -- something I previously
vowed never to do.
The phone itself is extremely
responsive from the moment you
turn it on through to loading the
many apps and games people use
It comes with its own voice rec-
ognition and control system as well
as the standard apps such as web
browser, messaging, email, contacts
and phone dialler.
Handy features such as automati-
cally calling the person you're send-
ing an SMS to if you lift the phone
to your ear make using it just that
little bit quicker and the inclusion of
a Micro SD card slot means you will
never run out of space.
The phone comes with a dedi-
cated GPS application from Garmin
which works surprisingly well.
Having previously worked with the
Google Maps navigation software, it
is nice to have a dedicated GPS app
and it means the phone can replace
one more device on long drives.
Battery life is something that is
always an issue with smartphones
and the Galaxy S III will easily last
24 hours. After a typical day for this
reviewer with some social network-
ing, web browsing, games, phone
calls and emails, it still had 30 per
cent battery life by bedtime.
The Samsung Galaxy S III easily
stands out as the company's flagship
phone and has the performance to
face off against tough competition
in the market. For people wanting a
one-stop multimedia powerhouse,
you can't really look much further
than this device.
The Galaxy S III is available in
16GB and 32GB versions and avail-
able in both white and blue from
most phone providers and some spe-
shoot cameras I've
owned and has me
using it now when
I'm not near a
DSLR -- something
I previously vowed
never to do.
