The Samsung Galaxy S3 is running Android 4.0, which is google’s operating system called android. The version of android is called Ice Cream Sandwich and that was released after the following; Android beta, Android 1.0 – Astro, Android 1.1 – Bender, Android 1.5 – Cupcake, Android 1.6 – Donut, Android 2.0/2.1 – Eclair, Android 2.2.x – Froyo, Android 2.3.x – Gingerbread and Android 3.x – Honeycomb.

Samsung have released an update so you can upgrade your operating system to android 4.1.1 – Jellybean, which was shortly released after Ice Cream Sandwich. For the processor, it has a Quad-core 1.4 GHz Cortex-A9, which is actually quite powerful. The S3 battery lasts up to 43 hours (depending on use) and the design really stands out. The browser supports HTML and Adobe Flash, which means it will support; youtube, facebook and many more applications.

The S3 has a 4.8-inch screen, which looks pretty good and allows you to watch things in HD. There’s also an 8-megapixel rear camera with flash and 1080p HD video capture. The front camera is 1.9 MP and this allows you to video call others without lag.

Overall, the Galaxy S3 is a brilliant phone and it is very sturdy. One thing I would note though is the screen is very easy to smash as I found out when my sister dropped hers (face down onto a stone). But on the upside, the phone is very stylish and the phone is very portable which means it is very easy to carry around with you.
