Samsung Galaxy S3

Android fans can finally exhale -- Samsung's follow-up to the wildly popular Galaxy S2 is here at last. Simply dubbed the Samsung Galaxy S3, this beast of a phone packs a whopping 4.8-inch 720p-resolution display, quad-core processor and boasts a slick new design.
The S3 goes on sale in the UK from 30 May and is being offered free on two-year contracts from £26 a month (or more), or you can pick it up SIM-free for between £500 and £520.
The S3 comes in 16, 32 or 64GB storage options but it also has a microSD card slot so you can further expand its virtual shelves.
Marketed under the axiomatic tagline 'designed for humans', read on to find out exactly how humanising the S3 is as you poke and prod its shiny surfaces.

Should I buy the Samsung Galaxy S3?

The S3 is not a phone for folk with modest mobile needs or small amounts of cash to spend on a blower. Happily, those guys are spoilt for choice -- with so many great mid-range Android phones to choose from which will serve their mobile masters as faithfully as Old Yeller.
The S3 is a phone for people with serious power needs and a healthy bank balance. If you want a device for 3D gaming, HD video streaming and browsing the web -- I don't mean faffing around with mobile versions of websites or lightweight apps -- the S3 has the superpowered engine and massive display you're looking for.
Indeed, this phone sits at the very top of the smart phone spectrum -- rival high-end Androids at this lofty price are hard to find. The main alternative is HTC's quad-core brute -- the One X -- which is actually more affordable than the S3 but not such a powerhouse, judging by our benchmark tests.
The monthly toll for the S3 could buy you Apple's top-of-the-range blower, the iPhone 4S. Its iOS software is generally slicker and easier to use than Android but won't appeal to people who really like to drill down, tweak, tinker and customise their kit. So it's horses for courses.
It goes without saying that S3 buyers aren't likely to need hand-holding where technology is concerned -- instead they'll relish the fine-grained opportunities Android opens up for customising and controlling your digital environs.
