Samsung Galaxy S III 16 GB
Advantages: Excellent Camera
I brought the Samsung Galaxy SIII in September 2012 to use at work. I have been very please about buying this phone and it is one of the best phones I have ever owned in my life.
Protecting the phone from wear and tear
The first thing I did when I brought the Samsung Galaxy SIII was to purchase a screen protector and phone cover to protect the phone from scratches and damage.
The screen protector and phone cover costs me roughly about £30.
Look and feel
The look and feel of the Samsung Galaxy SIII is excellent, very lightweight and
so smooth to carry around. The phone just looks fantastic!
Durability and Robustness
The durability of the Samsung Galaxy SIII is excellent and the speed of the
phone is the same as when I brought it. I was slightly dissapointed when I dropped the phone on the floor, one day after I brought it and there was a slight scratch on the right hand corner of the phone. This is what encouraged me to buy a screen protector!
Battery standby time
The battery standby time is very good and I can talk on the phone for hours/days before the battery drains! I always choose the power saving mode and this enables the phone battery to last much longer!
Value for money and range of features
I currently have an Orange mobile contract for this phone. It is expensive, however it is definitely worth it, as the Samsung Galaxy SIII has many uses (alarm clock, calendar, calculator - several gadgets rolled into one!). I use the alarm clock on a daily basis to wake up as I cannot wake up on time without it! There are options to set-up multiple alarms on various days! There is also an option for a stopwatch and timer! There are widgets available for assisted light, weather, Yahoo news, youtube etc. I have also downloaded several apps on the phone such as facebook, viber, skype, tango etc.
The camera quality of the Samsung Galaxy SIII is so good, that I didn't feel the need to purchase a professional camera. The camera has several shooting modes such as single shot, best shot, share shot, buddy photo share, beauty and smile shot. The camera has an effects option as well. The options offered include negative, cartoonify, washed out, red-yellow point,blue point, green point, solarise, posterise,
warm vintage,cold vintage, sepia and black and white. The best side effect that I like is blue point. There is also an option for self portrait (I use this option often to take
pictures of myself - Yes I am vain!).
I would definitely recommend that you buy the Samsung Galaxy SIII as it a trendy and very useful for everyday use!
