This might not be the right forum section, but anyway...

The S3 is Android, and the Play Store (Android app market) has a lot of apps you can use with your Raspberry Pi. Things like:

Text Editors (DroidEdit) - with Python syntax highlighting
SSH tools (ConnectBot)
Virtual control of GPIO
and many many more

Go for it, the S3 is a great handset, and the S4/S5 didn't add much more so it doesn't feel that old still.
