Samsung Galaxy S3 Review

 

The Samsung Galaxy S3, one of the most anticipated Android smartphone ever, finally arrives in the USA after a successful launch in Europe and elsewhere. In its final North American form, the Galaxy S3 differs from its international cousins in [...]

It is fair to say that the Galaxy S3 is an excellent smartphone. While it is not the “revolution” that Samsung fans were waiting for, the S3 deserves its spot in the Android Hall of Fame. Its design had created some controversy, but we do like it – a...

Samsung Galaxy S III Review

 

Samsung's Galaxy S III has finally hit Indian shores and loyal Sammy fans can't wait to get their grubby mitts on one. We know many Galaxy S II owners who've already swapped their phone for the upgraded model. Samsung made us wait a painfully long time...

Samsung has priced their flagship offering at 43,180, however actual retail pricing is closer to 38,900. This is still a little bit more expensive compared to the HTC One X, although the latter has been in the market for a while longer. Once things...

Samsung Galaxy S III (Boost Mobile)

 

The Samsung Galaxy S III is the best smartphone you can get on Boost Mobile, but it'll cost you.

Large, high-resolution screen. Fast processor. 4G LTE support. Good camera. Runs Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean)

Expensive. Data speeds are not quite as fast as many other carriers

Following in the steps of its belated launch of the Galaxy S II 4G, the Samsung Galaxy S III is now available for Boost Mobile a year later than it appeared almost everywhere else. And guess what? It's still a great phone. Sure, it's pretty expensive...

Samsung Galaxy S III (Cricket Wireless)

 

The Samsung Galaxy S III is still one of the world's best smartphones, and available from Cricket Wireless at an unusually low price.

Excellent screen. Fast processor. High-quality camera. Will get more features as time goes on

Android 4.1 not yet available at time of review. Cricket's 4G coverage is very limited

The world's top Android smartphone is now available at a very low price without a contract. Cricket Wireless's innovation with its Galaxy S III phone isn't in technology—this is the same Galaxy S III that millions of people around the world love—but in...

Samsung Galaxy S III (MetroPCS)

 

The Samsung Galaxy S III is the best phone for a network that's on its way out.

Most powerful smartphone on MetroPCS. Excellent call quality

Expensive

The Samsung Galaxy S III is MetroPCS's best smartphone, although you'll pay a high up-front price for this quality. MetroPCS's version of the Galaxy S III brings 4G LTE speed and great tricks like Wi-Fi calling and Google Wallet with NFC. It's good...

Samsung Galaxy S III Jelly Bean preview: First look

 

The Galaxy S III didn't stay in the R&D lab long enough to come with Jelly Bean out of box, but once the latest Android version was announced, Samsung was quick to commit to releasing a timely update. And it seems the wait will be shorter than expected...

Samsung Galaxy S III (U.S. Cellular)

 

U.S. Cellular is serving up Samsung's Galaxy S III ($199 for 16GB, $249 for 32GB) the way it was truly intended. The Editor's Choice hardware here is the same as you'll find on the Sprint and Verizon models, but U.S. Cellular's S III has been stripped...

State-of-the-art everything. Advanced call-quality features

Very limited 4G LTE coverage. Screen could be brighter

The Samsung Galaxy S III is, hands down, the best smartphone available on U.S. Cellular.

Samsung-Galaxy-S-III-Smartphone

 

New models of Smartphones seem to be arriving on phone store shelves almost daily, and the Apple iPhone is feeling the snapping at their heels by the latest models from numerous companies. Samsung's Galaxy S-III is definitely strong competition. . . . .

Samsung Galaxy S III ( U.S. Cellular)

 

Editors' note: This review of U.S. Cellular's Samsung Galaxy S3 varies from the review of the T-Mobile , AT&T , Sprint , and Verizon models in the areas of apps, call quality, and data performance.

The Samsung Galaxy S3 comes fully loaded with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, 4G LTE capability, a zippy dual-core processor, and a strong 8-megapixel camera. S Beam is an excellent software enhancement, and the handset's price is right.

The Galaxy S3's screen is too dim, and Samsung's Siri competitor, S Voice, disappointed us. You can only roam at 3G speeds outside of U.S. Cellular's home network.

Pumped with high-performing hardware and creative software features, the Samsung Galaxy S3 is an excellent, top-end phone that's neck and neck with the HTC One X.
