Lot of Smartphones are available in the market today. Which one you should buy is such a big confusion when you think of buying one. The best smartphone depends upon your requirements too. Sometimes, a smartphone you may buy may have lot of additional features than you would actually need them. For example, it has a lot of office application features that most of the users may not actually use.
As on March 2013, Samsung Galaxy S3 (GT-I9300) was one of the best smartphone available in the market. The latest Android software makes it even more more wonderful. It has the best hardware configuration in the given price with a great Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display with Corning Gorilla Glass 2 protection. Note that it comes with Ice Cream Sandwich but is upgradeable to the latest 4.1.2 Jellybean.
The powerful CPU Quad-core 1.4 GHz Cortex-A9 makes it stand extraordinary in the market.
The comfortable size of the phone makes it portable. The applications can be used at ease. You can edit a word document or read e-newspaper or browse websites at much convenience.
It stands between a regular mobile phone and a tablet phone. The size and weight are just perfect that fits in your pocket very easily. The new Samsung Grand is a bit heavier and thicker than S3.
The battery backup is also cool. Any smartphone will not have longer lasting battery if you are using it continuously. It also depends upon the application software you are using. Sometimes, some applications are not well built and may cause the battery to die faster. Ensure that you are not installing any software that doesn’t have good reputation in the market.
I am not sure why Samsung decided to use Micro SIM card in Galaxy S3. I feel that in case my phone battery dies one day and if I have to make a call through my SIM using some other phone, it will become a problem for me to use the same SIM card in regular SIM Card phones. But such situations do not occur frequently or are very rare.
The device is just perfect to run and use the applications. It’s perfect example of usability.
Cool applications make the phone even cooler:
– S-Voice natural language commands and dictation
– Smart Stay eye tracking
– Dropbox (50 GB storage)
– Active noise cancellation with dedicated mic
– TV-out (via MHL A/V link)
– SNS integration
– MP4/DivX/XviD/WMV/H.264/H.263 player
– MP3/WAV/eAAC+/AC3/FLAC player
– Image/video editor
– Document viewer (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDF)
– Google Search, Maps, Gmail, YouTube, Calendar, Google Talk, Picasa
– Voice memo/dial/commands
– Predictive text input (Swype)
The phones usually have screen display turn-off time. But this best smartphone has an additional feature that “sees” whether the user is looking at it. If it detects that the user is still looking at it, it will keep the display on, otherwise it will turn it off to save battery.
Best smartphone special “Intelligent” Features
Smart Alert: It knows when you’ve been away from your phone: a vibrating nudge lets you know that you have missed calls or messages.
Social tag: It keeps track of your loved ones: a glance at your friends’ photos will show you their current SNS status.
Direct Call: It knows when you want to talk: if you’re sending a message but decide to call instead, simply lift the phone to your ear and it will dial your friend’s number automatically.
Popup play: This is also a coolest feature. It lets you do two things at once: watch HD videos as you email or text. Really cool.
The touchfocus camera, face and smile detection are by default expected to be included.
The sensors include Accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass, barometer so you don’t need to have an additional GPS attachment (of course).
The pebble blue is one of the famous colors of this best smartphone. But other colors are good too. The different colors available are:
- Marble White
- Pebble Blue
- Amber Brown
- Garnet Red
- Sapphire Black

The price looks a bit higher, but certainly it gives you the value for your money.
