How does spending $39.99 to get your hands on the Verizon Samsung Galaxy S3 sound? You probably don't need to answer that, as Verizon is still selling the smartphone for $199 with a new two-year contract.
Wirefly is currently offering the Verizon Samsung Galaxy S 3 for $49.99 but if you use the coupon code "TB10" at checkout you will receive $10 off the price, making it $39.99. Of course, you'll need to sign a new two-year contract but it might be worth it for the low price of admission on one of the hottest smartphones currently on the market.
The Verizon Samsung Galaxy S3 has some very impressive specs: 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, Wi-Fi 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.
Verizon's Samsung Galaxy S3 is upgradable to Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean out of the box, and it will also be getting Android 4.1.2 very soon, along with Samsung's Galaxy S3 Premium Suite Upgrade. The Premium Suite Upgrade includes some very cool features like multi-window functionality (enabling users to separate their screen into two windows to use two apps at once), a new customizable notifications panel, smart rotation and new NFC and reader features. Other features of the suite include contextual menus that automatically adjust based on a user's previous and most frequent actions. Users can also have the ability to set up a music program to launch immediately when a user plugs in headphones. New tagging features are in the camera application and an optional notifications ticker is available from the lock screen.
Wirefly is offering the Verizon Samsung Galaxy S3 in blue, white, and black. It is also offering free shipping on the smartphone.
