The Galaxy S3 was launched a few weeks ago, following months of speculation and rumours concerning its spec list. Its predecessor and prior Samsung flagship, the Samsung Galaxy S2 is one of the most best selling Android mobile phones thus far, selling over 40 million units. The Samsung Galaxy S3 seems set to replicate that success if original sales figures are anything to go by.
Not surprisingly, the Galaxy S3 is already selling well. It was announced that the phone boasted above 9 million pre-orders, which is a greater number in comparison to the Galaxy S2. In fact, it has been recently announced that Samsung are finding it hard to keep up with high demand and their manufacturing facilities and suppliers are having to work tirelessly to fulfill orders. If pre-orders are anything to go by, we can expect the Galaxy S3 to prove just as, or maybe more popular than the Galaxy S2.
Exactly why is the Samsung Galaxy S3 proving so popular so soon after its unveiling?
The Samsung Galaxy S3 features a specification list which almost no other mobile phones can compete with. There’s an awesome 4.8 inch touchscreen, 8 megapixel digital camera, as well as the newest edition of the Android operating system known as ‘Ice Cream Sandwich’. This also comes with the Samsung TouchWiz UI on top. This is Samsung’s customized Android UI that provides extra customisation options, more downloadable content as well as an alternative appearance to the regular Android UI. Of course, the smartphone also provides the capability to download applications from Google Play. The Samsung Galaxy S3 brings a selection of amazing additional features, for instance S-Voice, the voice activated personal assistant similar to Apple’s Siri, and a variety of motion activated functions including Smart Stay.
If you are keen on getting hold of this most outstanding of phones, there are lots of offers available from almost all major UK networks. These include pay monthly deals, PAYG (pay as you go), and SIM free offers, whereby you purchase the phone , and just insert a SIM card with the tariff of your choosing. For those who choose a pay monthly deal, numerous UK network operators provide the handset itself absolutely free. One example is O2 Unlimited 1GB. This particular deal charges £36 a month and has unrestricted call and text message allowances in addition to 1GB of data use when you use O2’s network (Wi-Fi data is unrestricted), as well as a free Samsung Galaxy S3.
