Yes and user interface is as simple as it can be, but the sheer breadth of customisation options and clever 'tech tricks' can make it daunting at first. Just take a deep breath and work through it slowly - most people will have 18-24 months to get to know the phone inside out (whilst on contract).

Best find so far in the half day I've had this phone? It can turn itself into a wi-fi hotzone, so you can link up a wi-fi enabled tablet/gadget to the internet whilst on the go. Brilliant.

Speaking to the salesperson instore today wearing a S3 tshirt - She said S3 shares many things w the Note, including ability to use smart pen with it - It wasn't demonstrated, I didn't pursue it as a line of questioning, and so far the accessories I've seen online for the it doesn't include a Sammy pen (what makes it smart btw?) , but who knows what they'll bring out soonest, and in the meantime I'm sure you could use a dumb stylus already available for the 4S and numerous tablets.

The S3 takes a Micro SIM, your network provider should be able to switch you over to a micro SIM and allow you to keep your telephone number.

I have downloaded the user manual and read the tech specs. I think the S III comes in 16 Gb, 32 Gb and 64 Gb versions, and you can put in a micro SDHC card which can be up to 64 Gb in the memory card slot after you lift the back cover off.

I got flash working by installing it from the App market. Worked in both stock browser and Dolphin. Haven't tried Firefox or Skyfire, and I've no intention of trying Safari.
As for PDF, I'm sure there's an app to load it, although I've never needed it so I never looked.

It uses MicroSIM. If you want to use your old SIM, you may have to cut it in half, or go to your local phone shop and ask for a MicroSIM replacement (they'll charge for it, but not much, and it only takes seconds to set up).

Yes, tethering is supported by the Galaxy S3, however certain mobile networks may disable this feature, or charge you extra for it. Check the details of your current data plan (or any data plan you intend to get for this phone) for specific details on allowances/restrictions on tethering.

Question

Does the UK release of the Galaxy SIII support 4G LTE?

My contract is at an end and i'm looking at an upgrade. i'll be tied into a two year contract so i'd like a phone that is 4G LTE capable now so that it is compatible when 4G LTE is rolled out in the UK. Does the UK version of the Galaxy SIII have this capability?

Remember UK's planned LTE (4G) frequencies are different from those in the US.

This is why the IPad v3 will not work now or ever in the UK on 4G. Which is why they have had to drop the "4G" from all their marketing... apart from the bits they forgot!

The US variant of the S3 is called "SGH-i747" [see Wikipedia] and supports 4G frequencies at 700MHz whereas the UKs will be 800 and 2600MHz.It also has 2G RAM and a 1.5 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Krait. Others phones with quad core also have 2 core 4G variants for the US - some issue with quad core chip-sets and LTE stack support at the moment.

So imported US "SGH-i747" phones WILL NEVER work on 4G in this country - even when we have a launched 4G network in the UK and they haven't even auctioned the frequencies off yet! It's taken a decade for 3G coverage to get to patchy, I can't imagine 4G coverage going any faster in this cash strapped land.

Currently LTE is only being trialed in Cumbria, north England. From what I understand, the "International" Galaxy S3 with the Exynos processor will not support LTE and only has 1GB of RAM. The Japanese, Korean and Canadian models will come with the Snapdragon S4 processor that will support LTE, and the US will receive them too. In short, if you want LTE, you have to either import the device or pick another.

Go to settings - display and enable smart stay to enable the function.
After that really really concentrate your gaze on the front facing camera and your screen should not go off after the set time. :))

Here is what Thomas from Samsung Online Support Team told me last week:

"Yes, this phone supports dual channel Wi-Fi. Based on the specifications it is capable of supporting 300-400mbps due to the Wi-Fi HT40 support."

This is backed up from a mate in the know who says the S3 does have Wifi 2 aerials, whereas the S2 had only 1 so was limited to (only!) 150Mbps.

Have a look at US Accessories site:

But remember theirs is a slightly different S3 product to ours so product codes may not match, and charger voltages certainly won't travel across 'the pond'!
