Plunto on Samsung Galaxy S III

It may be too big for some users but we would say it is really sleek and cool. It is not at all plasticky (as negative side said) but solid, ultra-thin, shiny, easy-to-handle and most beautiful Smartphone ever. Above the display there are three tiny circles – LED notification, proximity sensor and the front facing camera. Undoubtedly with gorilla glass, S III is strong and unbeatable.

When it comes to battery, S III is a clear winner with outstanding battery life. The phone runs with quad core speed and has excellent camera.

Following few criticisms related with S Voice and its design pattern, Galaxy S III is a Smartphone worth its cost (yes we know it is too much).

Well it is also voted as the best Smartphone of the year 2012 and more than 30 million units have been sold till now.

Plunto says: Samsung Galaxy S III- Beautiful, Powerful and worth flaunting.
