While the Galaxy S III is a great all-rounder, suitable for just about anyone, we’ve highlighted what we feel are four of it’s strengths…
Along with its 1.9-megapixel front camera, the Galaxy S III’s 8-megapixel main rear camera (comparable to many point-and shoots) packs a punch with features like zero-lag shutter speed so you never miss a moment, a burst mode that can snap 20 continuous shots (and then select the best ones) and HD video that can be captured on either camera. There’s also improved backside illumination for low-light situations, image stabilization for when it gets bumpy, and face recognition.
THE MEDIA MAVEN
Take advantage of a number of “hubs” to access content while on the go. As you’d expect, the Samsung Music Hub lets you browse and buy music, while the Video Hub lets you watch high-quality TV shows and movies on the device. Game Hub, on the other hand, provides access to social games to play all day.
As with many other Android 4.0 devices, the Samsung Galaxy S III is loaded with integrated Google services designed to empower the mobile user. From Gmail (email), Google Search (voice or text) and Google Maps to Google Navigation (with free GPS directions), Google Plus and Google Talk (including video calls), this smartphone serves as a lifeline to your digital world.
THE APP ADDICT
With more than 450,000 apps now available at the Google Play store (formerly Android Market), you bet there’s something to find regardless of your individual tastes. Perusing, purchasing and installing apps have never been easier – plus there are also sections dedicated to e-books (Google Play Books) and films (Google Play Movies). Running out of space? Pop in a microSD card (up to 64GB) to expand your mobile media collection.
