Samsung Galaxy S3 Description

Overview

There may be a Galaxy S5 now, but back in time, there was a Galaxy S3 which took the world by storm and garnered rave reviews the way HTC's One did last year. During its time, it was considered one of the best phones in terms of build quality and features. But can it hold its own against the current crop of smartphones?

Performance

The Samsung Galaxy S3 is powered by a 1.4GHz quad-core processor with 1GB RAM onboard as well. The phone runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream sandwich and the Android 4.3.2 Jelly Bean upgrade is available for download. The 4.8-inch screen puts out display resolution of 720x1280 pixels. There is an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front camera on the Galaxy S3. There is 16GB internal storage available and you can increase the space by up to 64GB using a microSD card. A 2100mAh battery is rated to last close to a day on a single full charge.

Verdict

The Galaxy S3 showed Samsung's intetions of aiming at the big-league smartphone makers and the effort shows in terms of the phone's build quality and its top-end specs, not by today's standards, of those times when the phone was launched. If you feel a bit nostalgic and are crazy about Samsung, it is a piece of history from Samsung you should get for yourself.
