Samsung Galaxy S3 on sale for a mere £370

The combined arrivals of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and the Apple iPhone 5 are probably behind the Samsung Galaxy S3's price drop. The device can now be had SIM Free/unbranded for as little as £370 from ecell_acccessorize on eBay. That’s almost a third off its original retail price and a surprisingly fast price fall given that it was only introduced to the UK market at end of May.

The phone is new and comes with a one-year warranty. It is powered by a quad-core Exynos 4412 system-on-chip clocked at 1.4GHz with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of onboard storage.

Other features include a 4.8in 1,280 x 720 pixel Super AMOLED HD display, an 8-megapixel rear camera, a front-facing 1.9-megapixel camera, a microSD card slot, Android 4.0 ICS, TouchWiz UI, Samsung's Smart Alert notification feature, the Android Beam sharing function, a 2,100mAh battery and Corning Gorilla Glass 2.

The Galaxy S3 is not the cheapest quad core smartphone on the market though; the LG Optimus 4X HD undercuts it by £70. As for the iPhone 5, it is a whopping 43 per cent more expensive than the S3.

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.
