Another price cut for the Samsung Galaxy S3

Online shopping site Digital Rev has cut the price of the Samsung Galaxy S3 again, and the archrival of the iPhone 5 can now be had for as little as £379 including free delivery. Its original suggested retail price at launch back in June 2012 was £499.

Samsung’s flagship smartphone sports a new unibody design that, according to the manufacturer, owes a lot to Mother Nature thanks to a pebble like shape.

It runs on a quad-core Exynos 4412 system-on-chip clocked at 1.4GHz, has 1GB of RAM and 16GB onboard storage - with 50GB cloud storage from Dropbox for two years.

Other features include a 4.8in Super AMOLED HD display with a 1,280 x 720 resolution, an 8-megapixel camera, Bluetooth and a number of features like S Beam, S Voice, Smart Stay, Smart Alarm.

The device runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and will be one of the first from Samsung to come with Jelly Bean later this year.

Note that, like the majority of recent high end smartphones, this unlocked phone uses a microSIM.

Other quad-core Android-based rivals to the Galaxy S3 include the HTC One X, the LG Optimus 4X HD, the ZTE Grand Era and the Huawei Ascend D.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
