  • 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor

  • 4.8-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen

  • 16 GB memory + microSD

At a Glance

Delivering impressive processing power to allow more applications to be accessible simultaneously, the Galaxy S III also features a brilliant 4.8-inch display that extends to an ultra-thin bezel to maximize the viewing area. The expansive display is also protected by Gorilla Glass 2.0 to guard against cracks and scratches and provide enhanced touchscreen responsiveness.

Running on AT&T's ultra-fast 4G LTE network, the Galaxy S III also offers Wireless-N Wi-Fi connectivity. And with AT&T's Mobile Hotspot service, you can connect additional Wi-Fi-enabled devices to the phone's mobile broadband signal (requires appropriate data plan).

The Galaxy S III runs the Android 4.0 operating system (a.k.a., Ice Cream Sandwich), bringing a redesigned user interface with enhanced multitasking, notifications, full Web browsing experience, and more. You'll also enjoy innovative, next-gen features such as Face Unlock, which uses facial recognition to unlock the Galaxy S III, and Near Field Communications (NFC) capabilities.

Going beyond simple point-and-shoot photography, the 8-megapixel rear camera offers a Burst Shot mode that captures still pictures at a rapid-fire pace at three images per second with zero shutter lag, and its Best Shot feature recommends the best picture to keep based on colors, lighting, and clarity. It also records Full HD 1080p video with a backside illuminated sensor that improves performance in low light environments--and you can even capture a photo while shooting video.

Other features include Wireless-N Wi-Fi connectivity with mobile hotspot capabilities (enabling you to connect up to 10 devices to your AT&T 3G/4G mobile broadband), Bluetooth 4.0 with stereo audio streaming, 16 GB internal storage, memory expansion via optional microSD cards, and up to 9.2 hours of talk time.

Simple, Instant Sharing

The Galaxy S III has enhanced features that both you and your contacts will enjoy. It's designed to make sharing easy and more direct so your friends and family can experience every moment with you, regardless of your location.

Connect Through Touch: With S Beam, just place two Galaxy S III phones back-to-back and you can transfer photos, videos, documents, and more. In just three minutes you can successfully share a 1 GB video file--it's fast, easy, and you don't even need a Wi-Fi or cellular signal.

Send Pictures in a Flash: Thanks to Buddy Photo Share, the Galaxy S III recognizes the faces of your friends, so it can share photos with them right away. And with Share Shot, you can send photos to all your party guests so everyone leaves with snapshots of the event.

Access Content on Multiple Devices: Through AllShare Play, you can share files with other devices and access those files on various devices, such as documents or multimedia files between your Galaxy S III phone and a tablet, PC, or television. With AllShare Group Cast on the Galaxy S III and a Wi-Fi network, you can share and collaborate on documents, presentations or images in real-time with multiple friends or co-workers without loading the file separately.

Intelligent and Intuitive Interaction

Smart enough to detect your face, voice and motions, the Galaxy S III provides a more convenient and natural way for you to interact so it fits seamlessly into your daily routine.

Let Your Eyes Control the Display: Thanks to the Smart Stay feature, the screen display will remain bright as long as you're looking at the phone. Set it down, and it dims instantly. Because the front-facing camera can identify your eyes--while reading an e-book or browsing the web, for instance--it recognizes how you are using your phone and provides a bright display accordingly.

Tell Your Phone What to Do: The S Voice feature enables the Galaxy S III to actually listen and respond to your words: tell it to wake up, snooze, take a photo, answer a call, send a text message, or play a favorite song.

Don't Miss a Message: If you've been away from your phone, the Smart Alert feature will give you a vibrating nudge to let you know about missed calls and messages.



Seamlessly share videos, calendar, apps, and more.

Vital Statistics

The Samsung Galaxy S III weighs 4.7 ounces and measures 5.4 x 2.8 x 0.3 inches. Its 2100 mAh lithium-ion battery is rated at up to 9.2 hours of talk time. It runs on AT&T's 4G LTE and HSPA+ networks (850/1900 MHz; HSPA+/HSDPA/UMTS) plus international 2100 MHz 3G networks. It's also a quad-band GSM phone (850/900/1800/1900 MHz GPRS/EDGE).

AT&T 4G LTE Network

AT&T's 4G LTE network allows for quicker access, smoother media streaming, and faster web experiences. LTE technology is capable of delivering mobile broadband speeds up to 10 times faster than 3G. Additionally, LTE technology offers a faster response time due to lower latency--the processing time it takes to move data through a network--vastly speeding download times for web pages as well as improving services such as mobile gaming and two-way video calling.

By the end of 2011, AT&T plans to launch its 4G LTE network in 15 major metropolitan areas, covering at least 70 million Americans. Coverage will continue to expand in the next few years and is planned to be largely complete by the end of 2013.

And when combined with 4G HSPA+ technology, AT&T is capable of delivering a quicker, more consistent mobile broadband experience than ever before. AT&T has deployed HSPA+ to virtually 100 percent of its mobile broadband network, which enables 4G speeds when combined with enhanced backhaul (via Ethernet or fiber). Backhaul is one of the major pieces of a telecommunications network. Think of it as the limbs connecting AT&T's cell towers with AT&T's backbone network that provides access to the Internet.

Tech Talk

LTE = Long Term Evolution
Advanced wireless technology capable of increasing AT&T's already-fast network speeds. Now in select markets with deployment ongoing.
HSPA+ = High Speed Packet Access
Paired with enhanced backhaul--the accelerated pipeline between our network backbone and cell towers across the country--this technology boosts network performance.



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.

Android IceCreamSanwich

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Color Best Phone October 15, 2012
Long time android user but I have only had 2 Galaxy phones - the S2 Skyrocket and the S3. The skyrocket is a really nice phone as well but the s3 wins because:
-HD Screen - Apps like bible, eBay, and chrome are much easier to read.
-HD Video - looks much clearer then the skyrocket
-2gb of ram - this is definitely future proof
-supports up to a 64gb memory card for 80gb total!!
-battery lasts until 2 or 4 with heavy use. I haven't drained it completely but I assume it will die if I use it all day and night. I have Bluetooth, GPS, and Wifi on. 4g will definitely have a significant impact on the battery.
-super fast!!
-excellent reception
-excellent call quality
Cons:
-screen cracks easily - so get an Otterbox!
-awkward sometimes to hold one handed but still do-able.

I chose Red because it is the color nobody has. White is too plain/feminine and blue would be my 2nd choice but was a plain jane color too. The red is very deep and does have sparkles. Its almost a maroon color. I ordered a blue otterbox so hopefully it doesn't look too tacky. It is definitely my most favorite phone. Works great with Straight talk wireless!

To preface this review, I've had the following smartphones most recently in this order:

iphone 3gs
iphone 4
HTC inspire
Samsung Galaxy s2 skyrocket
Samsung Galaxy s3

PROS:

- screen size and resolution. 4.8"beast 720x1280.
- Screen clarity is amazing. I can clearly read the screen in broad daylight with no strain.
- Processor is blazing fast. No lag with multiple apps open and switching between them.
- size, shape, and weight are all perfect for me. This phone is surprisingly thin.
- speaker phone is loud and clear
- cell phone reception and internet speed are exceptional
- call clarity is excellent
- GPS works MUCH better than the HTC inspire, and as good or better than the skyrocket
- battery life is better than the HTC inspire, and about the same as the gs2 skyrocket (make sure to fully deplete the battery as soon as you get this phone. Then give it a 100% charge without taking it off the charger. Android OS needs to calibrate the battery.)
- built in task manager works very well.
- bottom app bar is customizable.
- camera takes excellent pictures.
- music player sounds great and is very responsive.
- physical home button is nice to have
- typing and playing games are both great experiences due to the huge, super responsive touch screen
- Android 4.0.4 runs MUCH better on this device than it did on the galaxy S2 skyrocket
- Shutter speed on the camera is very fast
- I reliably(so-far) use the built-in clock/alarm app as my everyday wake-up alarm. The smart alarm feature is really cool too!
- Comes with headphones with in-line controls. They are good for the gym, but the sound is a bit lean.

3.0 out of 5 stars Phone is great, amazonwireless not so much... February 24, 2013
Decided to get a new phone after my Samsung Captivate started to get really sluggish and would freeze up at the most inopportune times. I love the Galaxy S III. It's super responsive and easy to use. Battery life could be better, but other than that I have no complaints about the phone.

I give the phone 4-5 stars. I give Amazon wireless 2 stars. They show you a great price in the cart, but neglect to tell you that AT&T will tack on an a bogus upgrade fee that you cannot get waived (I tried escalating with an AT&T customer service supervisor with no luck).

So before you purchase from Amazonwireless, keep in mind that in addition to the fantastic price you see in the cart, you will have to pay taxes on the full price of the phone plus pay AT&T's upgrade fee. So, in short, I really didn't save any money by purchasing from Amazonwireless and I am "not a happy customer."

5.0 out of 5 stars Owned my S3 4G LTE for several months. May 11, 2013
I've read other reviews on here about the Samsung Galaxy S3 being "fragile" "cheap" "hard to use". Let me clarify some things. I used my wifes Iphone 3 GS, and liked it. Shortly after I got my 1st Smart Phone the Samsung Captivate, aka Galasy S. I liked the bigger screen, and the Andriod OS. About 18months later I killed my Captivate, and replaced it with the S3. My wife has an Infuse, aka Galaxy S2, and likes it. The S3... wow.
This is NOT fragile! I have a case that guards the battery cover on the back, and a screen protector( thin plastic film). I've dropped the phone numerous times, dropped stuff on it, fell out of my pocket at about 15mph, and it has survived it all! Yes it has nicks in the phoned, but the screen is perfect. It's also very bright unlike someone elses post, unless you dim the screen via the drop down bar, and you can adjust screen brightness in less than 3 seconds from the home screen.
The phone is not difficult to use, unless you have no patience what so ever to do a little navigating, and learn the phones OS. At first I was thinking "Oh wow I'm in trouble.", and within a day I had everything figured out.
My ONLY complaint about the phone is the LED indicator light for Aps when U have a msg, email, game update, and so on. You turn the indicator off, and some Aps it stays on. That falls on the App IMO, not the phone.
The S3 is an awsome phone. I would GLADLY own another. Would I recomend the Galaxsy S1, no. The S3? Gods yes! Nice 4.8 screen, tough as nails, good battery life, easy to learn with minimal patience. I would know beings as I've had it since Nov '12. Not a few days or a week. Enjoy!
