The Samsung Galaxy SIII is the best phone on the market.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 is a great choice in the market of smartphones. Its rich 4.8 AMOLED screen and intricate design may seem overdone by some, but they are both incredible. The phone runs at a great rate due to the amazing dual-core processor built into the phone. The call quality is not lacking either, with some of the best audio I have ever heard. The camera is on par with other smartphones with an 8.0 megapixel, but what gives it the edge is the HD screen to view the pictures on. All these reasons and more make this phone the best on the market.

Fully Featured Google Smartphone. Awesome value, Who needs Apple?
I love this phone!<br><br>The Samsung Galaxy S3 has a terrific interface for an Android device. I love the clickable center button on the bottom to perform task manager type functions or access S Voice, which is a "Siri" like application. The Navigation system is completely integrated with Google Maps, so if you are like me and use google maps a lot, This phone will help a lot on trips.<br><br>It is really big, but incredibly thin. I am 6'4" with big hands and I found it more comfortable to use with a thick case, like the one offered by Otterbox. It is a light phone for its size. The battery lasts me about 2-3 days as long as I clear the background running apps from time to time.<br><br>Text messaging is pretty easy due to three ways to compose messages. You can touch keys like a traditional touchscreen device (turn the device sideways to get a bigger keyboard). You can also use a swipe method by dragging your finger across the letters of the word. The system will usually intuitively guess the word you wanted. Finally, there is a microphone icon that lets you speak the message, which is then transcribed. When I have something to carry (like a shopping bag or briefcase), this is the method I use.<br><br>Google apps run natively on this device, so you can use Google to make video calls. You can easily link the phone to your google voice account (allowing cheap international calls as if you were calling with a calling card). I set my phone up to ask me each time I make a call whether I want to use my Google voice account or just the phone. As a consultant running my own business, I love the ability to switch between my business number (Google Voice) and my personal number when I make calls.<br><br>The only downside for this phone is the quantity of background apps that continually reload. There is no simple way to stop unwanted factory installed apps from loading. you have to "root" the phone (or get admin access to it). This may be above your technical expertise.... That being said, background running apps seem to be pretty standard with smartphones these days<br><br>Get this phone! You won't regret it.Read full review

Great product for the money
While the new models of Samsung keep getting more and more expensive, I find myself buying Samsung Galaxy S III editions because they're inexpensive and they get the job done. I do have to carry extra batteries along, but it's a small price to pay for paying such a small price!
