32GB Samsung Galaxy S3 appears online for £435

While there are plenty of 16GB versions of the Galaxy S3 around, you will be hard-pressed to find a retailer that is stocking a 32GB model of Samsung's flagship smartphone.

I managed to track down one such retailer on eBay called E_cell Global. The item is based in Manchester and the vendor has clocked more than 850,000 positive reviews so is unlikely to disappear overnight.

The smartphone costs £435 and is brand new, boxed, unlocked, unbranded and comes with free delivery and a one-year warranty but only in Marble White (no Pebble Blue available). There's at least 11 units in stock at the time of writing with delivery taking up to six working days.

Given that the suggested retail price of the S3 in the UK is £499, E_cell's price is a bargain with a 20 per cent discount off the SRP. Furthermore, you can get a 32GB microSD card for as little as £9 on eBay, so upgrading the phone to 64GB at the same time would make sense.

In comparison, the 64GB version of the iPhone 4S costs a stonking £699! The Galaxy S3 was launched in early May 2012 and went on sale a few weeks later. It has already sold more than 10 million units according to Samsung and helped the Korean company sell more than 50 million smartphones in the second quarter of the year.

When we reviewed the Galaxy S3 at the beginning of June, we concluded that if "you simply don't want an iPhone, the Galaxy S III should be at the top of your list".
