Review: Samsung Galaxy S III
Between Samsung, AT&T, and T-Mobile, the Galaxy S III is stuffed with software and other junk you may not want. Thanks to the menu tools, some of the apps can be deleted entirely. Others cannot, but at least you above the option of hiding them. Hidden apps remain the handset, but are no longer visible in the menu and app management tools. If the 55-odd preinstalled apps aren't enough for you, point your device at the Google Play Store and have fun.Bluetooth
The GS3 has Bluetooth 4.0, which is cool, but a bit ahead of its time, as Bluetooth 4.0 devices are few and far between at the moment. Of course, it works with any old Bluetooth thingamabob you have laying about, including mono and stereo headsets, cars, speakers, and so on. The GS3 worked flawlessly with all of the above. Phone calls sounded excellent through standard Bluetooth headsets; music sounded very good though stereo Bluetooth headphones; and the GS3 worked with Bluetooth keyboards and other accessories with no problem.Clock
There's a white digital clock on the lock screen. It is big enough to be seen at an arm's length, but be careful with the wallpaper you pick. Light or white backgrounds will make the clock impossible to see. Dark wallpaper works much better, especially for outdoor readability.

The GS3 ships with Google Maps (complete with Navigation and Latitude), as well as the associated carrier's navigation app. In this case, that means AT&T Navigator and T-Mobile Navigator. The TeleNav-based carrier apps work great and offer an extremely rich set of features that would be perfect for the GS3 did they not require a $10 per month subscription. Google Maps is free, and offers nearly identical features. For basic navigation, free trumps $10 in my book. It's also worth pointing out that Google will be updating Google Maps with 3D buildings and landscapes in the coming weeks, bolstering the usefulness of the app.
