The reviews agree that the camera on the Galaxy S III is snappy and very responsive with virtually no shutter lag at all and the 4.8 inch super AMOLED screen reveals bright and colorful pictures. The screen is a major selling point to high end smartphones and Samsung has definitely delivered in this part of the phone with a razor sharp screen of 1280 x 720 in screen resolution providing lots of space and an uncluttered feel to the Operating System. As mentioned earlier the camera is of high quality delivering 8 MP pictures and High Definition video with it’s fast 1.5Ghz Dual Core processor to keep up with any rendering and resource heavy apps that run in the background or tasks that can be taxing on a processor.
Even though the phone comes with a generous 2GB RAM it can easily be upgraded to up to 64GB’s or RAM using the common MicroSD card used by all smartphones. This amount of extra space can definitely come in handy if you are watching High Definition movies or recording them and taking lots of pictures while HD apps are becoming more popular but taking up more space.
