Head over to eBay if you want to buy an unlocked Samsung Galaxy S3. E_cell, a reputable reseller, sells the device for a mere £320 (including free delivery and 320 Nectar Points) and more than 500 have been sold at the time of writing.
The Galaxy S3, commonly known as the GT-I9300, was launched back in May 2012 and is the most expensive of the first generation quad-core smartphones (the others being the HTC One X, the LG Optimus 4X HD and the Google Nexus 4).
When it comes to the specifications, the Galaxy S3 is still a very capable device. It runs on a quad-core Exynos 4412 SoC clocked at 1.4GHz, with 1GB of RAM, 16GB onboard storage, a 2,100mAh battery, a 4.8in Super AMOLED display with a 1,280 x 720 pixel, an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front facing one, a microSD card slot plus an array of Samsung-only features.
