The world's best-selling smart phone, Samsung Galaxy S3 will be featured in Fiji at Digicel shops during Christmas.

Sporting a large screen, fast quad-core processor and a large memory capacity, it has been one of the most eagerly awaited devices not only in Fiji, but throughout the world.

Digicel Fiji 7s star, Joji Raqamate, who has had the phone for five days, said "this is the best phone I have had. It has a lot of applications, the camera is amazing, the phone is incredibly light and has a large screen".

He added that he was impressed with his gift and all his friends wanted one. The phone was a gift for being player of the month at the Gold Coast Sevens tournament this year.

The Samsung Galaxy has innovative smart features which facilitate improved human-device interactions.

These features include:

* Direct call — the handset's ability to recognise when a user wants to talk to somebody instead of messaging them, if they bring the phone to their head and;

* Social tag — a function that identifies and tags people in a photo and shares photos with them.

Digicel communication manager Zaheer Hassan said the phone was now available at Digicel stores throughout Fiji and at its head office at Kadavu House in Suva. According to analysts, the Samsung Galaxy S3 is the world's best-selling smart phone.

It received a massive 9 million pre-orders during the two weeks of its launch in London. It boasts cutting-edge features and major hardware enhancements.
