The T-Mobile branded Samsung Galaxy S III (T999) is an Android OS powered handset, which has got all the high-end specifications and an up-to-date solid hardware under the hood.
While the Samsung Galaxy S III falls far behind the and in terms of materials and aesthetics, it is a solidly built phone that's decently attractive. And for those of you who love the hardware home button (the kind that moves and clicks) that Samsung offers on many overseas models, it's alive and well here. Two capacitive buttons flank it for Menu and Back, similar to Gingerbread phone models. Rather than a dedicated ICS multi-tasking button, you'll press and hold the home button to see a list of recently run applications. Double-tap the home button to launch S Voice (voice command).
Samsung Galaxy S III runs Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich OS with TouchWiz Nature UX on top of it, sporting a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED 720p display with 1280 X 720 pixels of resolution, Corning Gorilla Glass 2 protection, powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz, a Mali-400MP GPU, 2GB of internal RAM, 8MP rear-facing camera with 1080p HD video recording capability, an additional front-facing 1.9 megapixel shooter with face recognition capability, S Voice app, 16GB/32GB internal memory storage, a microSD card slot for memory expansion up to 32GB, 42Mbps HSPA+-connectivity, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, DLNA, Wi-Fi Direct, GPS/GLONASS, Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth 4.0, Eye Tracking technology, access to Google Play Store, a whole host of the Google & Verizon services, 2100mAh battery to keep everything running plus all the regular features of an Android phone.
