Externally the Samsung Galaxy 3 looks quite familiar to fans of the Korean manufacturer, having rounded corners, a large screen and a pair of metal buttons on the front. Its design cannot be called original or catchy. The dimensions are 2.2 inches wide, 0.5 inches deep and 4.5 inches high, and the weight is 3.84 oz.

The Galaxy 3 uses a lithium-ion battery with the capacity of 1500mAh. According to the manufacturer, it is enough to work in the talk mode up to 7 hours and in the standby mode up to 350 hours. With an average load you can use it two days without recharging. But to fully charge a battery you will require 4 hours power supply.

The Galaxy 3 supports the GSM network (850/900/1800/1900) and UMTS (900/2100). In addition data transmission via EDGE and HSDPA networks is supported.

There is also the 3.2-megapixel camera without flash, bur equipped with autofocus. The quality of pictures is good, with natural colors and decent level of details, but you should take into account the low cost of the Galaxy 3. The manufacturer has provided a lot of adjustments to improve the quality of images. Various scene modes are offered with automatic settings of the parameters for a shot you are going to take. Shooting modes include single shot; continuous shooting (9 pictures at one time); stitching two shots; panoramic shooting, allowing up to 8-shot stitching together for making up one panoramic photo, detection of smiles, photos on the go.
