Samsung Galaxy S3 Specifications and Review

Samsung Galaxy S3 Specifications

Samsung Galaxy S3 is the smartphone with the specialty of design, as Samsung itself claims for its S3 being ‘inspired by nature’ so it can see, listen and respond. While using this first time you will surely get the natural theme in it.

It comes in 136.6 x 70.6 x 8.6mm dimensions, with a 4.8-inch display having Super AMOLED HD screen. It is available in various colors with interesting names, such as “marble white”, “amber brown”, “garnet red”, “titanium grey” and few others. Looking at the colors its pebble blue color looks more attractive than the marble white, though you have all of these varieties to take the color of your choice.

Compared to many metallic body smartphones in the market the Galaxy 3 has not focused much on the body build, it comes in plastic feeling which might reduce the customers appeal. Despite it having 133 g weights still it feels very light in the hands, thus the plastic feeling and the light weight constructs an impression of being cheap in its standards.

Still ignoring the impression it laid down, it’s not at all a cheap-feeling smartphone. On its front it got the solid Gorilla Glass 2 which gives it an attractive look on the front screen and also it has a well improved interior and an attractive battery cover. It has the polycarbonate rather than usual plastic.
