Deal: Samsung Galaxy S3 now available from under £300

You can now get the Samsung Galaxy S3 smartphone from as little as £299.95 SIM Free from Carphone Warehouse. That is a cracking deal given that the popular retailer sells the PAYG version of the device for more than £400.

The Galaxy S3 remains one of the most popular Galaxy models ever with pay monthly contract prices hovering around £20. It was superseded in March by the Samsung Galaxy S4 whose price now stands around 50 per cent higher than the S3.

It runs on a quad-core Samsung Exynos 4412 SoC clocked at 1.4GHz with a 4.8in Super AMOLED HD display, 1GB of RAM, 16GB onboard storage, a microSD card slot, S Voice, Pop up play, Smart Stay eye recognition, a natural design, an 8-megapilxe rear camera with burst shot, plus up to £50 worth of music, games and apps from Samsung's own Apps selection.

Other features include Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, NFC, up to 23 hours talk time, a front-facing 1.3-megapixel camera, full HD video recording, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with a TouchWiz UI. Note that this is the non-4G version. You can read our review of the Samsung Galaxy S3 smartphone here.
