One of the best that Samsung has to offer, the Galaxy S3 set the bar high in terms of just how smart a phone can be.

Intelligence - Smart stay, Smart alert, Social tag, S -voice, Direct call

The Galaxy S3 comes with a wide variety of intelligent functions, small yet extremely handy when it comes to your day to day usage of the phone.

Smart Stay ensures that there is no unnecessary loss of battery power if you fall asleep reading on the screen – the moment you look away, the phone puts itself to sleep. The S3 also nudges you with a vibration to let you know that you have a few missed notifications with the Smart Alert feature.

With Social Tag, the phone keeps track of all the people you care about and gives you their social networking status at just a glance. Direct call lets the phone go to call from a message when you lift it up to your ear making it easy to call a friend without tedious dialling.
And best of all, the phone registers voice commands – you can tell it to wake up, click a picture or open a link by speaking to it.

Sharing - S beam, AllShare cast and play, Buddy photo share

Sharing becomes simple with the Galaxy S3 that supports NFC. With the S-Beam, all you need to do is place another S3 nearby to share data and media back and forth. Allshare Play allows you to sync and access content even when you are away from your computer while Allshare Cast connects you to other devices, letting you beam photos and videos and also let you use it as a controller when you are playing on the big screen. The phone also recognizes friends instantly with Buddy Share and shares without much ado.

HD Super AMOLED

Cutting edge technology comes together to create the life-like 4.8 inch Super AMOLED screen that comes with full HD resolution to ensure that you have a crisp, bright and clear visual experience. Add on the Corning Gorilla Glass and you have a screen that is both effective and sturdy.

Pop up play

When you friend sends you a video on Whatsapp, S3 allows you to play the video and type out a reply to him at the exact same time – multitasking on a whole new level.

Smart keyboard

With predictive input based on your typing pattern, the S3 increases your accuracy of typing and also ensures that you type faster.

Enterprise Mobility Features

Very useful for work, the S3 allows you to shares the screen of your phone on a bigger screen during business meetings at different sites, it gives you safe access to the corporate network and resources with the simplicity of a single interface allowing for much smarter work life-personal device sync.

Let me straight forward start wid my review of dis cell wich iam using since 1.5 months.

Pros:
> A briliant 4.8 inch Super HD Amoled screen.Watching HD movies wid 7.1 surround sound is awsome.

> The Camera is a decent 8MP camera wid auto focus wich clicks gr8 snaps.The features like best shot,Burst mode come into handy at times.

> The Quad core processor is mor than enough for the current ICS OS & to handle the apps,HD Videos & games available in Google play.U can truely see the power of its CPU by going to the Video Player & selecting the Thumbnail view.All my 150 videos vl b playing in small thumbnail view simultaneously.

> 2180 mah batery is suficient to handle dis quad core bast wid decent backup of 1.5 days.I hv played 3 movies on a single charge.

> NFC+WiFiDirect=Sbeam is much much faster than normal NFC.

> I travel a lot & most of the time i completely rely on GPS.The GPS+GLONASS+Offline Gmaps are like a blessing for me.Widin 1-2 seconds the cell vl lock the satelite.Awesome!!

> Svoice is a pure time pass when u r alone & want to hv some fun.

> Pop-up play feature is helpful wen u r doing multitasking.

> Most of the people use to complain about its looks & design but dis is not true.Dis is is a great eye catcher.Many times at hotels & in my office,whenever i take dis White bauty out of my pocket,many people came to me & asked me about it & dis is the moment wen u feel dat the money u spent on buying dis is worth.

Cons:
> The Svoice,most of the times can't understand the Indian english.It vl either giv wrong results or else it vl say "I can't get dat".Sometimes it feels anoying.But the jelly bean update is going to release soon wich has Google Now wich is fast,accurate & gives full competition to Siri.

> The Smart stay feature is one of the companies main feature but it seems to b useless.To make it work properly,u need to b in a Very well lit environment wer ur face can b easily detected by the front camera.

> The Quad core chipset wid 1GB RAM sometimes seems to b not enough as when u open 3 applications at a time the UI seems to b lagging,the games sometimes automaticaly get closed or crashing problem & very often the Phone vl automatically boot up.

> The enormous screen & size are bit uncomfortable to handle in one hand & due to its thin & super slim smooth profile the chances r more dat it can fall from ur hands.

> The Camera is not good in Low light.

> Despite having Wolfson DAC audio chip in GS3,the sound is very low if u keep it on bed or in pockets.

> The Gorila Glass 2 on GS3 is not at all reliable.So plz go for a screen guard ASAP.

> U can't send big SMS(s).Dis is a common problem in Android OS

PROBLEMS:
I kept dis column separate as dis is the area of concern & is a worldwide GS3 Problem & Samsng has acknowledged these problems & working on the fixes.

> Message icon notification problem-
Step1: Send a new SMS to ur own number & return immediately to Home screen.
Step2: The moment u get the msg,u vl see a message notification "1" on the messaging icon shortcut on the homescreen.
Step3: Click on the message shortcut,read the msg & return to Homescreen.
Step4: U saw the problem?? Even if u read dat message,the message shortcut vl still b showing the 1 new msg notification.
Step5: Me & lot of other customers have complained dis to Samsng & they acknowledged dis problem & told they vl fix it in next updates.
Note: If u restart ur mobile OR Delete the shortcut & replace it back again OR clear the free Ram from task manager,den dis issue is fixed. BUT the next time when u get a new msg again,dis problem again comes. :D

> More RAM Consumption- GS3 has 1GB ram,out of wich nearly 300 MB is used by OS & user is left wid 738 MB for his needs.Out of dis 738 MB,the RAM Consumption vl b around 630-670MB(Normal usage wid no apps installed).So for running HD games & doing multitasking u vl b left wid 120-130MB free ram.

> Frequent hanging problems while opening/closing apps,making phone calls,messaging & automatic restarting:
Dis is a major problem.The phone used to hang many times & lead me to reboot it.In addition to dat sometimes it vl reboot automatically in my pocket.Dis auto rebooting problem is there in all Galaxy Series.

> 4th Problem: Smart stay is a headache.It vl shut the screen off in every 6-10 secs.

Dis is my experience wid my GS3.Despite all Problems,i would stil recomend people to buy dis as all the Cons & Problems r acknowledged by Samsng & dey promised to fix dis in next future updates.Moreover Jelly bean is coming in few months,So i think all the problems vl b fixed.

Enjoy wid ur Galaxy in hands.

The same performance issues for my colleage who purchased Samsung SIII from samsung estore

Now I am asking Samsung for the replacement of my handset but samsung says only a repair(even flipkart gives 30 days replacement) would be possible

Later from the internet I came to now that there are some performance issues with mother boards for a particular lot of mobiles and Samsung is trying to sell these mobiles via offers ......... Beware of Samsung cheating the Indian Customers

Make a right decision before buying/investing over these cheap phones

Planning to move this issue to Indian Consumer Court

What you need to know most importantly about S3

Problems with Smartphone today is that we buy it, but often most of us do not use it to fullest than the device is capable of.

Do not buy this device, if:
1. You are not going to use the features for which it is hyped. Like, i commonly do not use S Beam, Wifi Direct, Cast Share.. Why? Due to lack of resources or need. These are just show - off things.. But , if your closed one has got S3 too, then you may use above features..

2. You do not want to play games, record memos, make reminders , record high end videos, set schedules.

3. Just want to play music, record videos and images.. Ther...

3. Just want to play music, record videos and images.. There are cheaper smartphones available that can do these jobs too.

Buy this device if:

1. You are Android app developer and taking this thing seriously.

2. You are traveller.

3. If you want to use features regularly described in the first paragraph.

Misconceptions people have.........

Let me answer some of the basic questions and misconceptions people have here.

1. The price - S3 is 4k-5k costlier than One X?
Well at the time of it's launch that were true but ATM the price difference is hardly 500rs - 2k (I found a re seller in my area selling one x for 36k and s3 for 37k). Where as the advantages that s3 brings over one x are worth the difference according to my opinion. Also people are paying 44k for a phone with half the features just cause of the brand, how is that justified. (and if you're saying some crap about brand value then you are probably...

Where as the advantages that s3 brings over one x are worth the difference according to my opinion. Also people are paying 44k for a phone with half the features just cause of the brand, how is that justified. (and if you're saying some crap about brand value then you are probably just a show off who doesn't even know how to use a device to it's full potential)

2. 1.5 tegra is faster than 1.4 Exynos.
Again this is a common misconception that since tegra is 1.5 it's faster than exynos. In some cases it is but mostly exynos beats tegra hands down. That is why it's the fastest mobile cpu available in market. (Which will eventually be beaten by s4 krait quad core when it comes in the market)

3. One X has better screen.
This one is subjective as people who like warmer colors will like One x's display better while those who like cooler colors and more contrast will probably like SAMOLED displays. (personally I too like One X's display more than S3's)

4. Build quality and design - S3's looks are crappy?
They do look that way don't they? Until of course you have seen and hold the device in real. Personally I like s3's look not more than HTC but still they are not that bad. Also one X and s3 use the same polycarbonate material. It's just that HTC chose matte over glossy while s3 uses a hyperglaze coating which although gives a glossy finish to the phone making it less vulnerable to fingerprints and makes scratches less noticeable.

5. Mali 400 in S3 is the same as S2 and One X has better graphics.
While the Mali 400 chip is the same it's running at a different frequency. Thus making it perform better that the chip in S2. Also One X has ULP geforce which ain't that good a graphic chip.

6. Storage is just 16GB while others are offering 32GB.
Again other don't give you the option of microSD card do they. Buy a One X and you are stuck with 32 gigs of storage no microSD no USB OTG. While s3 is offering both.

7. 8MP s3 = 8MP s2.
Sure going by this concept they both should be equal to an 8MP cybershot which in turn would be equal to 8MP DSLR. People need to understand MP (mega pixels) aren't the only thing. Also s3's camera is definitely better that one X's, read any review.

8. S beam, smart stay etc are useless.
though they are gimmick not all of these are useless. Smart stay and the message dial features are some I really like and am using almost every day.

9. Touchwiz not on the level of HTC sense.
Again a matter of personal preference. Although Sense is a great and better looking UI, touchwiz is more feature some of which are simple and more friendly (like the infinite scrolling)

Apart from this some other advantages S3 has over one X -
1. Better battery backup + removable battery.
2. Already mentioned expandable microSD card slot.
3. Better audio quality through headphone.
4. Better customer service and support.

Samsung Galaxy S3: an unforgettable experience

Its been a week I bought this phone, and trust me guys, this is a beast!!!
The first thing you will notice about this phone is, well,its size. Its huge to say the least, and phones shouldn't really get any bigger than this. Personally I feel the size is big for a phone, and is simply risky for one handed use. On the other hand, the larger screen estate does help when browsing the internet, or watching a video, etc.

Many people have been complaining about the build quality of this phone, saying its cheap plastic n all. While it doesn’t look as premium as other flagships, but its not that bad either. You will be fooled if you judge the phone's appearance by the pictures; in hand, it really looks and feels much better and sturdy. Also, its polycarbonate, the same material used on the HTC One X, so you can comfortably forget about the bad comments on quality of materials.
The display is one of the the best displays right now in the market, period. Super AMOLEDs are known for their rich colors and deep blacks, and trust me, you have to see it to believe it if you haven’t already. The blacks are impenetrable, and colors pop out to the eyes. You can tweak display settings if you like more natural looking colors. Finally, those who are worried about the pentile nature of the display, don't be. At pixel density of 306 ppi, you won't even notice the graininess in day to day use that was prevalent on galaxy S, unless you see from very close range.
The ICS 4.0.4 UI is skinned by Samsung Touchwiz Nature UX. This is nothing like what touchwiz used to be couple of years back, and really brings a fresh feel to user experience, not very visually appealing as HTC Sense, but not bad either. The software runs on Exynos quad core processor, that coupled with a MALI 400 GPU and 1 GB of RAM, this phone literally eats most other phones for breakfast. I haven't seen any android device this smooth, the UI literally flies with your touch, and apps launch in a flash; it just refuses to give up, its insanely fast! All of this is powered by a 2100 mAh battery, which is a removable one too. It easily lasts a day and a half with moderate to heavy usage, and the longevity is certain to increase after a couple of charge/discharge cycles.
Storage option is plenty, as this phone comes with 16 GB onboard. If you crave for more, it supports microSD card slots of upto 64 GB capacity, so storage shouldn’t be a problem for most.
The default video player, as usual, has very rich codec support. I have experienced some issues with .mkv format, and really hope this to be fixed soon with an update. The other popular formats, divx/xvid,mp4, flv, all played without any issues. 1080p videos played smoothly without any hiccups. This phone really is one capable video player OOTB.
Samsung has incorporated the touchwiz music player, with new, polished look. The player supports all popular formats, and the phone really excels in the audio department, with a top notch audio output. Buy a pair of good headphones and you are good to go.
Camera has the same pixel count as its predecessor, the S2 (8 MP), but Samsung have improved on the sensors for better pics, which is a smart move. For all who are talking about the absence of a 12 MP unit, unless you are planning to print billboard size photos, its really not necessary. Image quality depends on the sensors. The zero shutter lag feature works as expected. The camera has a couple of useful shot modes (burst shot, panorama, etc), which are handy, but I found that not all of them uses the flash, like the burst shot mode, so forget it if you are planning to make a burst shot in low light conditions. The front camera is a 1.9 MP module, and is pretty decent as well.
The camera is capable of recording 1080p videos is mp4 format, and you can actually capture 8 MP stills while recording the video simultaneously, which is a nice feature. I won't comment much on this since I haven't shot videos yet, but the online reviews have been positive about the video recorder. The front module is capable of shooting videos in 720p.
A couple of negatives that I have come across:-
1) Some of the features I feel are more of marketing gimmicks, like The Smart stay feature only works in a well-lit environment, and that too, the operation is not guaranteed (I personally was annoyed about this feature, and Samsung itself warns about the same).
2) Surprisingly, Samsung has removed/disabled the ICS feature of drag-n-drop one app shortcut on another to create a folder, so you have to go the old-fashioned Gingerbread way of creation of folders.
3) You cannot move installed applications to memory card.
If you consider the overall experience, there are not many phones in market right now which can dare to stand toe-to-toe with this beast. Its not perfect, but its far from being bad either. If you have the pocket and do not want to go for anything else but the best, you cannot go wrong with this phone. Highly recommended!!!

very poor heavy and bulky UI, makes the phone extremely slow, similar specs phones from competitors are much faster, not a value for money deal, do not expect further upgrades to android versions. accessories are easily available and are inexpensive. i do not recommend anyone to buy this phone j...

Good quality but bad aftersales support

Phone is best for money at that time (7 months before)...but remember samsung stopped releasing kitkat release for the phone to increase the sales of s5. so better go for moto g which has better specs than this. (View complete review)
