The Samsung Galaxy S3 is considered by many people in the tech world the best smartphone currently on the market; it has even ranked higher than Apple's iPhone 5 in terms of features and specs on many technology enthusiasts' lists. It is the first smartphone to truly give the iPhone real competition since its debut in 2007.

The Verizon Samsung Galaxy S3 has some very impressive specs. The Galaxy S3 features a 4.8-inch 306ppi (pixels per inch) 1280 x 720 Super AMOLED Plus HD display, Android 4.0 (upgradable to Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean), 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, 16GB of internal memory, 2GB of RAM, 8-megapixel rear camera with zero shutter lag and LED Flash, 1.9-megapixel front camera, 1080p HD video capture (rear camera), 720p HD video capture (front-facing camera), 4G LTE radio, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC (near field communications), microSD slot with support for up to 64GB microSD cards and a 2,100 mAh removable battery.

If you buy this smartphone you'll be happy to know that while it ships with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, you'll be able to update the Galaxy S3 right out of the box to Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean, and soon Android 4.1.2 will be released for it, which is expected to bring even more features and enhancements to the smartphone. One very popular feature is Samsung's very own Multi-View feature that allows you to multitask by running two applications at the same time while splitting them up on the screen.

Amazon Wireless is currently offering the $69.99 Verizon Samsung Galaxy S3 in both black and white models and is also offering free two-day shipping on the order. Amazon has both models in stock and will ship the smartphone within 24 hours of purchase.
