Deal: £284 Samsung Galaxy S3 smartphone

You can get the Samsung Galaxy S3 smartphone for a mere £284 at Amazon, a device that is new and comes with free delivery. You can opt either for the blue or the white version, both of which cost the same.

The Galaxy S3 is one of Samsung's best-selling smartphones ever, one that easily thrashed the rest of its Android competitors (HTC One X and the LG Optimus 4X HD). Its new price means that it may well be a much better option than the LG Nexus 4.

Samsung's former flagship device comes with a quad-core Exynos 4412 SoC clocked at 1.5GHz, 1GB of RAM, 16GB onboard storage, a microSD card slot, a 4.8in Super AMOLED HD display with a 1,280 x 720 pixel resolution, a rear 8-megapixel display, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich plus a number of features like Smart Stay, Direct Call, Pop-up Play, S-Beam, Social Tag, Best Photo, S-Voice, Smart Alert, AllShare Play and Cast.

You can still get it on fairly decent contracts for around £17 which is fairly reasonable given that this is still a very capable handset.
