The Samsung Galaxy SIII - a phone worthy of the hype

The camera on the Samsung Galaxy S3 is one of the biggest surprises from the Korean firm, and shows quite a step-change in the way it approaches mobile design: it's stuck at 8MP with the sequel to the S2.

We don't think this is much of a problem - the humble mobile phone doesn't need any more than 8MP to take good quality snaps but Samsung has always chased specs in the past, so this is an interesting move.

What do you get for that lower spec? Well a thinner device of course - today's camera modules are very much slimmer than their counterparts a year ago, and a 12MP sensor would have had to be thicker or take inferior quality shots.
