Smart Stay

With the innovative Smart Stay feature, GALAXY S III automatically recognises when you are looking at the phone, whether it is to read an e-book or browse the web. The front camera looks deep into your eyes and maintains a bright display for continued viewing pleasure. What a bright idea.

Direct Call

Samsung GALAXY S III even knows when you want to talk. When you are messaging someone and decide to call them instead, simply lift the phone to your ear and Direct Call will dial their number for you. No more fumbling through call logs or contacts. Let GALAXY S III do the work.

Direct Call

S-Voice

Why not get a response from your phone? Tell it to wake up! Even better, you can tell the GALAXY S III to turn off the alarm for a few minutes and let yourself sleep a bit longer. Answer your phone (or reject a call), turn your music up (or down), and even tell the camera when to shoot.

Smart Alert

When you pick up your phone, wouldn't it be nice if it let you know what has been happening since you've been gone? The GALAXY S III knows you came back and gives you a brief vibrating nudge to inform you about missed calls and new messages. How thoughtful is that?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleek I bought this device 5 years ago and it still functions (well, as a backup phone). I wish Samsung Electronics could incorporate this phone design into their future Galaxy S series of smartphone (yes, I know that is not gonna happen, but I "wish"). It's a great phone & I like the overall design of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Phone Ive Ever Owned! I had this phone for two years before moving up to the Galaxy S5 ( which I actually barely touched for the first month because I was in love with my S3 so much). To end my love affair with this phone I stood down and sold it. The purchase of the S5 turned out to be an insurance scam, and 7 weeks later the person who sold me the phone reported it as lost/stolen and the device then became blacklisted, so has served me as nothing more than a tablet/wifi device since - though I will admit that even having a blacklisted S5 was a complete saviour, the phone I was lent to put my sim in for the meantime was an iphone. Anyway after slandering and broadcasting my hate for Apple devices to anyone who would listen for months on end, I recently decided it was time to purchase an S3 again, and reconcile my love affair with it. My new(used but in fantastic condition) S3 is this time the 4G version, so slightly updated from the 3G model I had before. This phone feels amazing in the hand, even with a cover on. It is just the right size to control and access all features using only one hand, its responsive, the screen is amazing (samsungs always are unbeatable) and even after 6 months with an S5 I swear the S3 screen is better. The preloaded sounds are pretty, as are the wallpapers, of course you can customise if you wish, but you wouldnt rush to like with some phones. The only downside with samsung phones is all of the pre installed samsung apps and bloatware that hog memory and seem to want to update 3 times a week, despite the fact theyre not wanted and are never ever used. You cant remove these permanently (unless you rooted your device) but you can disable them, which is good, but still a hassle. Overall I would recommend this phone to anyone and everyone , young or old, new or familiar to android. Even a phone with twice the camera, twice the RAM and a "better screen"(debatable) didnt win me away from this. Try it. You wont be let down, even if it is 2 and a half years old now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like the style and quality The phone having a large screen makes it easy to read and print can be enlarged to a good size for us of poor eyesight, needed a 15 year old to help sort the set up of certain aspects but there are plenty of them willing to help out there. All in all very happy with the purchase and Tescos delivery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use, affordable smartphone I bought this for my mother for Christmas. It was several generations of phone later than her previous one and her first taste of using a 'SMART' phone. With a little guidance, she has been up and running in no time. A recommended purchase.
