Ah, this is one of those wonderful, rare times I get to buy myself a new bit of technology. I recently had a cell phone crisis (My phone broke while I was at a conference and then I couldn’t pay my phone bill anyway, so I was without a phone for a month. It was very not fun.), but then my favorite time of the year happened: financial aid disbursement. So I took my happy (rich feeling) ass down to the phone store and bought myself a lovely new phone. As many of my friends will note (usually while sighing and rolling their eyes): I fucking love cell phones. I’m a bit obsessed with Android phones and I couldn’t pass up the rare opportunity to buy the best phone available (which wasn’t too expensive since I had to sign a new contract, too). And what phone did I pick, you ask? Only the most awesomest one out right now: the Samsung Galaxy S III.
Just look at this phone porn.
It feels and works just as good as it looks. It runs Android 4.0, is 4G LTE capability, has an amazing 8 megapixel camera, a beautiful 4.8 inch screen, a dual-core processor, 2GB of ram, 16GB of internal storage plus a micro-SD slot, Near Field Communication capability… and all that doesn’t even begin to describe how awesome it is. This is the sexiest piece of technology that I’ve ever owned. And yeah, I’m probably exceeding acceptable levels of excitement for a cell phone, but damned it, I don’t care. Basically, if you’re looking for a new, kickass phone, I would highly recommend this one (which is available on Sprint, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon).
