    We review the Samsung I9300 Galaxy S III. Under the motto 'three times is a charm' Samsung releases their Samsung Galaxy S III smartphone. The screen of the S3 is a McDonald's super sized 4.8" Big Mac...

    Nice to see you're doing smart phone reviews too now, Hilbert.

    This could easily be my next phone when my contract finishes at the end of the year, been with the original galaxy s for nearly a year and a half so this should be a good move up. These new 2 year contracts seem to go on forever.

    Yeah I was wondering what pretty battery lifetime looks like, can't be worse than "my girlfriend's dog" ;)

    That's the standard FM Radio App Samsung delivers with the phone.

    Just a bit of pedantry : Divx 3, DivX 4, DivX 5, DivX 6, DivX HD, h.263, h.264, Mpeg 4, xvid are not file container formats.
    Containers are something like Matroska (MKV), MP4 or AVI.

    good review

    just a small mistake

    "The S3 has two cameras. The front side camera in the S3 is an 8 megapixel cammy with LED flash and auto focus features. It's probably the best camera I have ever seen on a smartphone. The camera is capable of 1080p video recording at 30fps."

    Looks like it will be even better for viewing porn than the Galaxy SII!
    Brilliant review. :)

    Nice review/ I'm not a fan of smart phones so still use a simple phone. But in October my dad's due an upgrade so will get an S3, so I'll either get that (if it's too big for him) or get his S2 instead.

    You can get the S3 for free in the UK on contract.

    Nice review Hilbert.

    i just sold my S2 and went with the Galaxy Note...........just like the S2's bigger brother,but much better web-browsing on it's 5.8" HD screen! ;)

    the NOTE 2 will be with us in October,so looking forward to the next trouser busting Galaxy mobile/tablet !

    great to see a phone review Hilbert. would be great if guru3d became a one stop shop for all tech.

    I could only imagin how much work to would take though.

    Great stuff!

    I'm going to guess at the same boring crap that doesn't even support a home screen or widgets...
