About Samsung Galaxy S3 i9300 16GB

Riding high on the success of the Samsung Galaxy S2, the South Korean company decided to add another model to its S Series with the launch of Galaxy S3 or S III last May 2012. The latest addition proved to be quite popular with over 50 million units sold to date. It was ranked #1 in different lists of the best smartphones in the world, thanks to its new features.

Popularity in the Philippines

Filipinos were delighted with the introduction of the Samsung Galaxy S3 as it heralded another era in the smartphone industry. The local market welcomed the new handset with much enthusiasm, which is not at all surprising since the device is a cut above the rest. Samsung certainly cemented its place in the hearts of the Android-loving Filipinos. Even the price was not a deterrent and many lined up to buy the much talked about mobile phone.

Product Features

The Samsung Galaxy S3 took about 18 months to develop, a lot longer than the other models but the wait is certainly worth it. For starters, the smartphone comes with Android 4.0.4 and upgradeable to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and uses the proprietary TouchWiz user interface from Samsung. It features a 4.8 inch HD Super AMOLED 720X1280 screen with 8MP rear camera and 1.9MP front camera capable of 720p video recording.

As for its new design, the Samsung team decided to incorporate natural elements like wind and water flow which is why the home screen features a "water lux" effect and curved outline. The device is made from magnesium chassis and no longer features the boxy design of the Galaxy S and S II. It is available in White, Blue Gray, Red, Brown, Gray and Black.

There are two versions made available for users: one comes with the Exynos 4 Quad System on a chip which features a 1.4 GHz quad core and the other one uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 system on a chip, which features a 1.5 GHz Krait CPU and ideal for countries with 4G LTE connectivity. Memory wise, the S III comes with a 1GB RAM and 16GB or 32GB internal memory storage with micro SDC card slot for up to 64MB.

Samsung features which come with the smartphone include S Beam, All Share Play, Smart Stay, Group Tag, Pop Up Play, Camera Quick Access, S Voice and Social Tag. It has numerous sensors including Accelerometer, Digital Compass, Gyro, RGB Light, Barometer and Proximity. There are also a lot of built in Google Mobile Services such as Play Store, Google Talk, Maps, Google Plus, Gmail and You Tube. Battery included has a 2,100 mAh capacity which translates to about 790 hours standby time or 11 hours talk time on 3G.

Users can also expect the Samsung Galaxy S III to be compatible with multiple media formats for music, videos, audio books and podcasts. Retail price ranges from Php19 000 to Php22 000.


There are plenty of reasons why the Samsung Galaxy S III became popular as it did. For starters, you cannot deny that it has a stunning HD screen display which made watching videos and even browsing websites always a great experience. There is also the quad core processor which makes multi-tasking a breeze. The 8MP camera is also an advantage as it means great quality photos and videos. Users have always appreciated the fact that Samsung phones come with a micro SD card slot for expanding memory capacity. User interface, which can be customised, is also another reason why many prefer to buy this phone over Apple’s iPhone.


The size of the Samsung Galaxy S III could be an issue for some of the users especially for those with small hands who will have to use both hands to handle the device. It also does not look as sleek or premium as the other brands of the same price range. You can probably blame this to the plastic material that Samsung prefers in order to ensure the units are lightweight. Unfortunately, such decision compromised the phone’s appeal.


If you are looking for a really dependable smartphone and built to impress, the Samsung galaxy S III should be among your considerations. The best thing is they are priced quite reasonably and you will most likely not upgrade for many years to come.
