The Samsung Galaxy S III enables you to share smarter, interact more intelligently and experience great performance, all powered by Verizon 4G LTE.

The Samsung Galaxy S III features a 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED display, packaged into a sleek, slim and lightweight design with an ergonomic grip, smooth lines and gentle curves. A 1.5 GHz dual-core processor and 2 GB of RAM allows seamless multitasking without delay.

Share Smarter

S Beam

One-touch sharing, or S Beam, allows you to share multimedia files like photos, videos and presentations between two Galaxy S III devices by simply touching the backs together to “Beam” content from one device to the other.

Share Shot

Share Shot allows you to establish a temporary photo sharing network with other Samsung Galaxy S III users who are nearby. Once your group is established over Wi-Fi Direct (multi-connect), photos taken by any member of the group will be shared instantly with everyone else in the photo sharing network.

AllShare Play

With the Samsung Galaxy S III, you can enjoy your media untethered. AllShare Play allows you to stream multimedia content to your compatible Samsung SmartTV or compatible home audio systems, tablets and laptops when connected to the same Wi-Fi Access Point.

Interact More Intelligently

Motion Gestures

Motion gestures integrated with the Samsung Galaxy S III allow you to interact with your phone in new ways. Shake the device to refresh, turn it over to mute the ring during a meeting, or swipe to capture a screenshot. If you need to call someone you’re already texting, simply raise the phone to your head and the device will dial. Other gestures include quick access to the camera, quick rotate, quick pause, missed event alerts, and tap to the top of a list.

Smart Stay

No need to tap the screen every few seconds to keep it lit while you’re watching a video or reading a book - Smart Stay keeps the Samsung Galaxy S III’s display on as long as you’re looking at the screen. The device detects when you’re looking at the phone, maintaining a bright display so you can enjoy your content uninterrupted.

Verizon Wireless 4G LTE Network

The Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network allows you to download photos, apps, and games in seconds and entire movies in minutes. LTE (or Long Term Evolution) provides significantly increased upload and download speeds over 3G networks, as well as significantly reduced latency (or lag time). Verizon Wireless expects 4G LTE average data rates to be 5-12 megabits per second (Mbps) on the downlink and 2-5 Mbps on the uplink in real-world, loaded network environments.

With these blazing fast speeds, you'll be able to stream HD movies without the annoyance of constant pauses to buffer the video stream--as well as quickly download HD-quality movies right to your phone in minutes. Additionally, you'll be able to download a new song file in about 4 seconds or upload a photo to your favorite social networking site in about 6 seconds.

The Verizon Wireless 4G LTE mobile broadband network will also redefine the mobile office for business users. Business applications that used to require wired networks will be untethered forever, allowing you maximized productivity and efficiency while you're out of the confines of your office. Enhanced security lets you tap into most VPN networks with less waiting, and faster responsiveness enables you to upload 10 MB presentations back to your team in less than 25 seconds.

In areas serviced only by 3G, you can expect download speeds of 600 Kbps to 1.4 Mbps and upload speeds of 500 to 800 Kbps in Mobile Broadband coverage area.

Verizon Wireless Services

Backup Assistant: This complimentary service automatically back up your mobile contacts to your online address book. If your phone is lost, stolen, or damaged, or you decide to upgrade, easily restore your saved address book to your new phone. You can also add, delete, edit, and print your contacts online and send the changes to your mobile phone. There are no subscription fees for the service.

VZ Navigator Capable: With this GPS-enabled phone, you'll be able to access the Verizon Wireless VZ Navigator service (additional charges applicable) for voice-prompted turn-by-turn directions, heads-up alerts, local search of nearly 14 million points of interest in the US (such as landmarks, restaurants and ATMs), and detailed color maps.

V CAST Video: Enjoy unlimited, on-demand access to full episodes of your favorite television shows from all of the major networks, plus the latest in local and national news, live and recorded sports and entertainment and weather. You will receive over 100 channels with over 250 full episode shows and an impressive list of live sporting events each month.

Visual Voice Mail: This innovative service enables you to delete, reply, and forward voice mail messages without having to listen to prior messages or voice instructions. Visual Voice Mail is the ideal tool for the busy mobile professional who may need to prioritize which messages he or she listens to first. Features include on-screen access to voice mail message status, save up to 40 messages for 40 days (or archive permanently), create up to 10 different caller ID-based greetings, and reply via call back, text or even voice mail.





Android IceCreamSanwich

Android Ice Cream Sandwich Operating System

The Galaxy S III runs the Android 4.0 operating system (dubbed Ice Cream Sandwich), which adds powerful new ways of communicating and sharing while improving on the best Android features: easy multitasking, rich notifications, customizable home screens, resizable widgets, and more.



Compatible with Google Wallet (view larger).

The new Ice Cream Sandwich interface features an onscreen navigation bar that replaces the hardware buttons for Back, Home, and Menu found with older Android-powered phones. And with Google+ integration, you can video chat with groups of up to 9 friends as well as easily upload and share photos and videos. Other features include:

Face Unlock

You can now unlock your phone with just your face using the Face Unlock option. It takes advantage of the front-facing camera and state-of-the-art facial recognition technology to register a face during setup and then to recognize it again when unlocking the device. Just hold your phone in front of your face to unlock (or use a backup PIN).

And the lock screen now lets you do more without unlocking. From the slide lock screen, you can jump directly to the camera for a picture or pull down the notifications window to check for messages. When listening to music, you can even manage music tracks and see album art.

Home Screen Folders

Quickly access related apps right from the home screen by organizing apps and shortcuts into folders--just drag one app onto another to create a folder.

Multitasking

Multitasking is even easier and more visual in Android 4.0. The Recent Apps button lets you jump instantly from one task to another using the list in the System Bar. The list pops up to show thumbnail images of apps used recently--tapping a thumbnail switches to the app.

Voice Input

The new voice engine in Android 4.0 lets you dictate the text you want, for as long as you want, using the language you want. You can speak continuously for a prolonged time, even pausing for intervals if needed, and dictate punctuation to create correct sentences. As the voice input engine enters text, it underlines possible dictation errors in gray. After dictating, you can tap the underlined words to quickly replace them from a list of suggestions.

Near Field Communications

A short-range wireless technology similar to Bluetooth, Near Field Communication (or NFC) allows enabled devices to share information in close proximity. For example, you can "touch" or "swipe" an NFC tag that might be embedded in a poster, sticker, or advertisement, then act on the data read from the tag.

You can also utilize NFC for contactless payment via Google Wallet. Instead of using cash or swiping a credit card, just touch your phone to an NFC payment reader and have your purchase deducted automatically. Store virtual versions of credit, loyalty and gift cards securely in Google Wallet, as well as coupons and offers that can be redeemed when you make a payment. You can make payments at hundreds thousands of locations nationwide where MasterCard PayPass is accepted.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice Size Screen, Snappy ICS 4.0, Great Phone July 15, 2012
The US version of the phone differs as it has a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Processor with 1.5 GHz Dual-Core CPUs, while the the rest of the hardware specs are the same as the international version.

I switched from an HTC EVO 4G to get this phone and so far it's been great! Here are the things I like about the phone:

* The phone is a nice size, it's lighter than my HTC EVO 4G.
* The processor is one of the fastest US released Android phone, and it comes with 2 GB of RAM.
* I played around with the camera and video camera and the quality is great in my opinion. (I'll post some pics or a video later.)
* The ICS 4.0 is really snappy and it opens up applications quickly.
* It comes with Google Wallet. I signed up and got a free $10 to use. (I'm going to McDonald's to test it out!)
* I've only use the S Voice application a few times, but it seems to be just like Siri on my wife's iPhone 4S.
* It comes with a micro SD slot in case more space is needed to save pictures, videos, etc.
* You can change out the battery if needed.
* Battery life last twice as long compared to my HTC EVO 4G.

Now for some cons:

* This is carrier related and not the phone itself, but the 4G LTE is not all in all areas so be sure to check your carrier if internet speeds is a deciding factor in purchasing this phone. If not you'll be stuck with 3G speeds.
* The phone is so nice, that I baby it all the time!

I was on the fence about getting this phone or the HTC EVO 4G LTE aka HTC One X. The main things that I like over the the Samsung Galaxy 3 over the HTC EVO 4G LTE is that it comes with the Micro SD slot and also the battery can be changed if it ever goes bad.

I love this phone! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING phone September 21, 2012
By S.N.
It was time for an upgrade and I figured I'd upgrade as high as I could go, and for that reason made a gamble and preordered this phone. I've had it since July, which is more than enough time for the various glitches to make themselves known--except that there aren't any. This phone is every bit as powerful as I'd hoped, and I'm not sorry I sprung for the extra memory, either, as I've loaded mine to the brim with music. (I'd originally had no intentions of doing so, but it goes to show you, it's better to be prepared.)

The screen is clear and crisp--people who handle my phone for the first time are always impressed. There's zero lagging, and the only problems I've ever had are app-related rather than phone-related. The design is wonderful, too; people will randomly stop me in the store and ask what phone I have. Now that it's been available for a while, the questions have now become "is that a Galaxy S III??"

I have this thing in a case and screen protector 24/7, because I'm absolutely in love with it and there's no way I'm getting scratches. If I wasn't a fan of Samsung before, I certainly am now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Android Phone! August 7, 2014
By Kat V
Verified Purchase
Awesome phone! I purchased this phone for husband who was looking for a good Android device with a micro SD card slot. This is his first Android phone. He has used it for a couple months and loves it. He has had Apple and Windows phones but prefers Android out of those three. This phone has many features (some he is still learning). I think it is very comparable to the GS5 (my phone). This camera does a better job scanning product bar codes than my GS5 set on standard settings.

I would recommend this phone to anyone looking for a solid performing device.

3.0 out of 5 stars In a word... Disappointed September 21, 2012
I was really looking forward to the release of this phone. This was the first phone I've ever preordered. I started the phone, synced it with my facebook, twitter, and emails, then the problems started. I love swype texting. I had the Driod Bionic before this phone when I started using Swype. The Bionic, while it was riddled with problems of its own, was crisp and intelligent with its swype. The more you used it the better and more responsive it got. The Galaxy SIII however is a complete letdown. I have found about 10 words that cannot be created using swype no matter if you place the line directly over every letter in the word. Try to text quickly when common 3 and 4 letter words like for or more cannot be created using the swype. Swype also cannot be turned off. The keyboard is ok to use with touch only, but it makes for very slow texting.

The second issue I have with this phone is its overhyped speed. I downloaded the same apps thanks to my Google account, and the results have been less than what I've hoped for. Several games on this phone become lagged if played for too long (more than 10 minutes). Some to the point that they are unplayable. The features of this phone sound great, but only if everyone you make contact with has this phone as well. In my social circle, I'm the only one with a Galaxy SIII, so my sharing tech is completely useless.

Now for the biggest letdown of all from the phone. The so called "Siri Killer" is a joke. I speak with a mild accent and it cannot understand anything about what I say. I'm waiting for Google to come out with a system like this that will dominate the market, because from my experience with voice recognition tech, Google has the most sophisticated system out.

Samsung did some things right with the phone.
