Jelly Bean and TouchWiz Enhancements
The Samsung Galaxy S® III is now easier, faster and even more beautiful than before. Experience the innovative features of Android™ 4.1, Jelly Bean. Its got new ways to share stories and discover music, camera enhancements for more creative photos, TecTile technology that adds a new level of functionality, and much more. Learn about the Galaxy S III update.


Share Back-to-Back
If sharing is your thing, the Samsung Galaxy S® III is your phone. With S Beam, you can share large HD files in seconds – just touch compatible devices back-to-back. S Beam takes full advantage of Near-Field Communication (NFC) and Wi-Fi Direct technology, making it quick and easy for you to share photos, videos, documents, calendars, contacts and more. And you don't even need Wi-Fi® or a cellular signal.


Share Big
As much as you like a crowd huddled around admiring your new phone, it won't be necessary with AllShare® Play. Because now, you can play your music, videos and slide shows on any compatible HDTV or computer for all to see. Go big.


Share Photos Instantly
Share Shot lets you share your photos with up to five friends – as you take them. What does this mean? You don't have to remember to share later - just share on the spot and forget it. Sharing has never been so much fun, so fast, or so hassle-free.


Gesture Smarter
The Galaxy S III goes beyond swiping and pinching. Special motion gestures let you do things easier and more intuitively than ever before. For example, to capture a screen shot, just swipe your hand across the screen. To get to the top of a list, just tap the top of your phone. Or if you're texting someone and want to call them, just put the phone to your ear. It doesn't get any smarter than that.


Speak, and the Galaxy S III will Listen
S Voice™ responds to your every voice command, acting as your on-board personal assistant to give you helpful, accurate information, dial phone numbers, send messages, open apps and more. It will follow your commands and answer your questions quickly and intelligently. You can tell your phone to wake you up, take a photo, answer a call, send a text message or play your favorite song. In fact, thanks to S Voice, you might never talk to real people again.


Simplify any Task
Samsung TecTiles™ is the short-hand way to operate your Galaxy S III. Just program your "tiles" to automatically handle repetitive actions, like changing settings or performing certain tasks. After that, all you'll need is a simple tap of your phone. It can launch apps, connect you to Facebook® or Twitter® or share a contact with any NFC-enabled phone.


Memories in a Moment
The Galaxy S III is as powerful as it is stylish. For starters, the camera has 8MP and absolutely zero shutter lag, so you can catch memories the moment you press the shutter. Want more? Take up to 20 continuous shots in seconds with Burst Shot. The front-facing camera even has a full 1.9MP, so you can get yourself into the HD action.


Picture-in-Everything
The display is so bright and beautiful on the Galaxy S III, you won't ever want to stop watching. With Pop Up Play, you won't have to. It's a picture-in-picture feature that lets you continue to watch your HD videos while you surf the web or check your email. It's multitasking to the max.


Powerful Hardware and Software
The Galaxy S III gives you the most powerful hardware and software you'll find anywhere. First of all, there's a 1.5GHz dual-core processor to make sure everything works quickly and smoothly. Second of all, there's the Android™ 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich platform. You'll have the smartest smartphone around.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Phone

Pros: The phone preforms fantastic, it is smooth and responsive. Also great that it is unlocked, meaning you can use it on any carrier.

Cons: Came with a European wall plug to usb charger instead of a North American style plug. Has some bloat ware, which fortunately was easily uninstalled.

4 out of 5 eggsFell in love with my phone

Pros: This phone, which is marvelous, came in new condition. I was transferring over to Straight Talk because I didn't want high cell charges and this phone was one they had as a compatible phone. I like the large screen and all my friends whom have other phone brands are all thinking of switching to the Galaxy. The phone came promptly and as I said it was like new in box.

Cons: This may be because I am over using the phone like a kid with a new toy, but I am finding the need to charge it frequently.

1 out of 5 eggsBuilt to last only just past warranty

Pros: works beautifully for the first couple months

Cons: screen is constantly turning off intermittently. It has become unusable

Other Thoughts: This is the first product I've ever bought that I've had buyer's remorse over. I wish I had paid closer attention to the negative reviews of this item before purchasing, because only 3 1/2 months after purchasing, the phone began to fail.

2 out of 5 eggsLet the buyer beware

Pros: Not going to bother here, other people have mentioned them. Yes, it is a good phone, when it's working. Read the cons.

Cons: Like many other people here I bought this phone on Newegg last year thinking I'd get a good deal. Approximately 9 months after owning it I got hit by the sudden death syndrome. Phone restarts on its own with increasing frequency, eventually it would freeze, and then freeze so long I had to remove the battery. I've sent my phone in twice for repairs and each time all they did was reflash it which is what I could've done myself. I was without the phone for a month the first time and two months the second time.

Trust the many negative reviews about this phone and do not buy the I9300. If you do have it there is an app called Dummy File Generator that may help you. The theory on the freezes is a bad flash chip is written to which causes the phone to freeze. Once written to the state of the chip changes so it's less likely to freeze in the future. The Dummy File Generator app just writes as much of your memory is free to force these freezes to happen rather than it being random when you don't expect it. Note, even though I used this app I still had the freezes hence me sending it in the second time.

Other Thoughts: Now that carriers are letting you buy unlocked phones directly from them, go that route. At least you'll have a physical store to go to if anything goes haywire.

1 out of 5 eggsSamsung phone

Pros: Its a nice phone.

Cons: However, since Newegg purchases the phone from a american dealership. Samsung does not cover the warrenty. If you have a problem as I do, the samsung does not charged and it dies after 9 months. If you go onto the internet, there are several instances of this problem. So you are out the money. SInce this problem occurs after Planet Celluar and Newegg's warranty limit

Other Thoughts: I would not recommend purchasing any phone or products which are not covered by the parent company

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: price drop to 399 after the launch of S4
very good price. thanks newegg!!

Cons: Sort of unsealed. According the newegg disclaimer, this should be normal.

Still don't come with North America charger!!! Not the end of the world but not acceptable either.

Other Thoughts: first time Android user after using iphone for 5 years, buying this one as secondary phone.

its hard to hold the phone without accidentally touching all other buttons like menu, backward and volume.

5 out of 5 eggsPhon-Phon

Pros: Works great. T-mobile 4g plans are accepted but the phone can only use HSPA so you're down by only a couple of mbit less. Battery is great on normal use.

Cons: Battery capacity could have been bigger, 2100 mAh is more than enough but if you are gonna use HSPA network speeds then your in trouble because HSPA drains a lot more power than 3g or 2g. I wish there was a setting where I can choose 3g over HSPA.

Other Thoughts: I wish newegg had a case bundle for this. Not just any case but cases that covers up everything protecting the phone from almost every accident. Examples are Bodyglove ShockSuit, Griffin Survivor for S3.
