Samsung Galaxy S III with 32GB White - 4G LTE
The Samsung Galaxy S III is yet another example of Samsung doing things right. The Galaxy S III keeps the same sleek design and feel of the earlier Galaxy models but with even more added features to make it easy and desirable to use.
The Verizon phone is on the large side, with a width of 2.78" and a height of 5.38". Its light weight, however, keeps it from being uncomfortable or unwieldy to hold. You'll more than appreciate the size when you realize how great the 4.8" screen is for watching movies, looking at pictures, or easily reading text.
The Galaxy S III comes with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich as its operating system. The OS and the 1.5 GHz processor work together to ensure the phone runs quickly, smoothly and efficiently. Does it work? Absolutely. Consider the Pop Up Player option in the video player. With a touch of your finger, you can pop that video out of the regular player and play it in a smaller window. Keep your favorite music videos playing in the corner of your screen as you browse the Internet. A less powerful operating system could never follow through on a promise like that.
One of the much-advertised features of the Galaxy S III was S Beam. To use S Beam, simply set up the system on two Beam-compatible Samsung phones, touch the phones together, and share information between the two phones instantly. It looks as cool as it sounds. S Beam is an extremely quick and easy way to share larger files, such as videos or folders of pictures.
Personal assistants that respond to voice commands are all the rage in smartphones these days, and the Galaxy S III has Samsung's answer: S Voice. With S Voice, you can launch apps, schedule tasks, search the internet, send email, and so much more, all just with your voice. S Voice's driving mode also allows you to communicate without ever having to pick up your phone. It will read texts aloud to you and send back a response you've dictated. Turning on S Voice before starting out on a long drive helps you drive safely while still staying connected to the world around you.
