    27 May 2012 | slashgear

    If there’s such a thing as heritage in the relatively fledgling world of smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy S III has it. Seldom does a phone – at least, one not wearing an Apple logo – arrive to so many expectations, and this time around Samsung even managed to match its Cupertino rival for pre-launch hype, rumor and intrigue. If the original Galaxy S convinced us Samsung could indeed be a top-tier player, and the Galaxy S II play...

    The Galaxy S3 has been available in the market for a while now, but with the recent update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean (the 4.1.1 platform), not only has the S3 been given a speed boost; there`s also a host of other goodies thrown in as well. It`s mostly changes to the interface that have been brought with the new update, but there are a few other areas that have been updated with the new breed of TouchWiz, so we`ve spent a few weeks checking them ...

    Pros: Excellent battery life, Superb screen, Quad core speed, Top media management,

    Cons: Subjective design, S Voice not optimised,

    Verdict: The best smartphone around right now with a whole suite of premium features to play with....

    The Samsung Galaxy S III is the Android phone of the moment and in many ways it lives up to the hype. Plenty of folks are excited to see this thing hit store shelves. Our take? They won`t be disappointed....

    Pros: Tons of cool software like S-Beam and Buddy Photo Share ; Beautiful, large display ; Solid battery life

    Cons: The plastic feels cheap and grabs prints ; TouchWiz is heavy and ugly

    Verdict: In the end, the Samsung Galaxy S III is the phone youu2019ve been waiting for. Itu2019s generally well-built, it has an incredible display, solid battery life, plenty of interesting features and it just works well. Thatu2019s not something I find mys...

    Overall: While this phone is easily the best in the market right now, what makes it better is a good case, like the one I have from JsxlTech. It is slide-able and detachable and has a bluetooth keyboard attached, which make typing long emails really easy! Keyboard Case for SIII

    Best Features: display

    Pros: Hardware

    Cons: Samsung Touch Wiz

    Overall: Samsung Galaxy S3 is a very good smartphone, packed with features and with a very competitive price. Probably its biggest downside is the Samsung Touch Wiz which does not meet the high specs of the phone, the similar Galaxy Nexus phone does much better without the Samsung Touch Wiz interface.
