Reviewed: Galaxy S III - the only phone you will ever want
15 Jun 2012

The Galaxy S III, as Samsung is inspired by nature it sees, listens, responds, and allows you to share the greatest moments, and that theme is ever present when you turn on the phone for the first time. The device has beautiful flowing lines and rounded corners and edges, similar to the Galaxy Nexus, giving it an elegant and smooth finish. Weighing in at 133g, you still get the plasticky feeling that is synonymous with the Galaxy range though that little annoyance fades pretty quickly. Read more here: Gearburn review

A pretty cool feature is window-in-window, which allows you to watch a video and look at your home screen or browse the web at the same time. Sporting Android 4.0, aka Ice Cream Sandwich, the S III means business. It comes with new super snazzy version of Touch-wiz, Samsung's Android software, and of course the Siri rival we've heard such talk about, S Voice, is carefully packed inside the phone.

The only real problem with this device is the price.
