Design
Whether it’s the ocean’s horizon or a majestic forest of Nordic firs, one thing is apparent: there are no straight lines in nature. The Samsung GALAXY S III’s minimal and organic design is reflected in its smooth and non-linear lines. Its human-centric nature provides an ergonomic and comfortable experience with enhanced usability. Its comfortable grip, gentle curves and platinum organic form deliver a natural look and feel.

Sharing your content with friends nearby should be easy, quick, and even fun. S Beam lets you bond instantly so you can transfer documents, contacts, pictures, music, videos, you name it. Just put the backs of your phones together, connect, share, and enjoy.
AllShare Play
AllShare Play
There’s another way to share content on various devices. It’s called AllShare Play, and it lets us work together through the magic of DLNA and Wi-Fi Direct, giving us remote access to documents and multimedia files when we work on a different screen somewhere else. S Voice

Why not get a response from your phone? Tell it to wake up! Even better, you can tell Samsung GALAXY S III to turn off the alarm for a few minutes and let yourself sleep a bit more. Answer your phone (or reject a call), turn your music up (or down), and even tell the camera when to shoot.
Social tag
Social tag
Now it’s even easier to keep track of friends and loved ones. Social tag lets you link the faces in your photo album with their social media streams. Once it’s set, all you have to do is look at their pictures and you’ll see their current status appear.
Direct call
Direct call
Samsung GALAXY S III even knows when you want to talk. When you are messaging someone and decide to call them instead, simply lift the phone to your ear and direct call will dial their number for you. No more fumbling through call logs or contacts. Let
Samsung GALAXY S III do the work.

Will someone with a crystal ball tell me if these will be £299 within the month??
I really don't get along with Samsung's version of Android.

For me, I'd take the Nexus 4 and the change.

Hot for the price though.

v. likely I can say
whilst the nexus 4 looks appealing & cheaper, I would have to go for this over the nexus due to the expandable memory and replaceable battery.

these will come down in price when the s4 becomes readily available.

I'll stick with my s2 for the time being as serves my needs fine.

how long before cold, not apple, boring comments start??? :-)


Since I got the nexus 7 and I'm not impressed with the battery life at all, I'm considering the nexus 4 but I feel that its battery life is also short? anyone?
I got a brand new one off a deal on here earlier in the week for £250.

It's a great phone for that sort of money. The nexus is a great phone as well but it just does not feel as nice as the Samsung IMO. 16gb is not much either for a smart phone with these sort of specs. With a bit of music, videos, apps and pics etc its gone in no time. Being able to stick in another 32gb card for only £15 is a huge benefit.

A friend has the nexus and having played with each others phones there is no doubt at all that the s3 is superior even aside from the expandable memory and changeable / upgrade ale battery.

As long as you follow the battery tips and limit the amount of apps running at the same time, the battery life is fine. That said, don't do any of that and you'll see your battery draining pretty fast.

Horses for courses, you pays your money and takes your choice.
I love the "raw" android OS, having had Cyanogen Mod on my HP Touchpad for a long time now.
My kids have Samsung tablets and I find the Touchwiz interface bloated and clumsy.

Asda Direct are extremely good for returns, no questions asked.
I have a s3, wife has a nexus 4, I've had extensively use out of both, and must say the s3 is superior in everyway.
Nexus 4's screen isn't as good, the camera is awful, and the s3 is quicker when browsing the net; as for the 'rawness' of android, if that's what it is, well quite frankly you can stick it up your bum. She agrees with me, which is unfortunate after what I went through to get her it, but she's decided on either a s3 or ip5.
Wouldn't go near e-cell their return policy is to say the least crap, rather but from Asda as stated better service. Had problems in the past with e-cell where I had a faulty handset which I had to send to Sony uk and said that this is not a EU handset

Technically, the Nexus 4 has a resolution of 1280 x 768, while the S3 has a 1280 x 720 display.

In any case, enjoy your "extensively use" of your wife's cast off once she convinces you that she needs an iPhone, women eh?

I do appreciate the @n@l insertion advice though, especially when coupled to your sound argument. Whereas once my anus was purely a one way street, you and your phone have helped me realise what I have been missing in my Samsung/iPhoneless back door sex life, and for that, I thank you sir!

I raise a glass to you and the A&E units up and down the country that will now surely be inundated with cases requiring removal of vibrating S3's from all manner of @rseholes.

As someone who's had an S3 for a year - I'd take the Nexus 4 in a heartbeat.

Samsung clog their handsets up with a metric tonne of crapware, their UI/interface is sluggish and the software you HAVE to use to connect/upgrade it is shonky and will take days of your life away trying to get it to work.

The only downside of the Nexus is no user-replaceable battery and no SD card slot. The latter is something you can live without for sure - the former might be a pain-in-the-ass at some point.

Not as much of a pain in the ass as Samsung's junkware tho

Because Asda returns are better than E_cell.
Hot - I have an s3 the missus has a nexus4, day to day use there's nothing in it other than the obvious storage and removable battery, build quality also pretty much the same so I'd say the current price difference is about right

Well i agree with you guys, but on the other hand i must say that most of the time ASDA price for mobile is ridiculously high, i personally looking for a mobile set but never think about it to visit ASDA. And i personally prefer not to buy mobiles from eBay, as i heard from some one he bought a 2nd hand set like new under warranty, after 2 months the set is blocked he claims for refund from so called ebay buyer protection but nothing happened they said is too late to do some thing ........
people who go out to prove a point when its really opinion based...

No it isn't. Asda has a better returns policy than the other place, no opinion is needed.

I have consulted my crystal ball and it would not say and advised me to consider how the S2 price is holding firm after two years. It also mentioned that the person using the tag eatmorefish is about to meet a tall dark stranger. Yikes.

On a serious note, if money is tight, the S3 is available 2nd hand from smartfonestore at a lot less than £300. They are currently awaiting more A grade unlocked s3's but i bought one last year. It was delivered super quick, arrived in mint condition and is performing flawlessly.

How does that even work? Asda are selling it for £319.00
Put foxhound on it and you're laughing. Had mine for 9 months now with foxhound and its bloody good.

Quidco is tracking at 3% for me - so potentially less than £319!
