Samsung Galaxy S3 - Everything you need to know
The Samsung Galaxy S3 is the flagship Android phone of 2012. It has received a jaw-dropping critical response, sold 10 million units within its first three months on the shelves, and is the phone that's most likely to draw buyers away from the iPhone 5.
What's so special about the Galaxy S3? Its top feature is a gigantic, high quality screen. 4.8in across, 720p resolution and using the dazzling Super AMOLED screen tech, it's one of the few phones we could stomach watching a whole movie on. If you have the big pockets to match, this is one seriously desirable phone.
