Is there a difference between the german and the french SGS3? Something like provider rom?
To make it short- if the device is region free / unlocked - there is no difference at all, except 3 minor things:
1- supported languages: for some reasons, suppliers prefer to hide the built-in support of 4.1 (and above) android of all languages.
2- different modems- some roms have a modem that works great in specific countries.
3- built in apps- suppliers sometimes love to integrate some apps in the system, some that are completely useless...
For the difference between the two you mentioned- if they don't belong to a specific supplier- just go with the newest one. Also, most of the custom roms solves the issues above, so if you're planning to install one, I strongly suggest that you'll try the one of them- especially the one in my signature
