Has everything I need in a phone and more! Not to mention it's sexy! It's super thin with a 4.8" screen that feels big in my hand. (Coming from 3.7" on a Droid.) A little dim compared to other phones. Even on maximum brightness... But it's not that noticeable. I love the 1080p video and 8mp camera. NO SHUTTER LAG IS AMAZING! Motion features are awesome, and S-voice is pretty good! Nothing you could hold a conversation with, but it's still fun to use. The 2GB dual-core processor works great. Quick and snappy. Battery lasts all day! Been unplugged since 9:30 this morning... It's about 10pm and I still have 74%! (With moderate use.) Probably helps I only have one widget running.. All in all this is a wonderful phone. I would definitely recommend it.

Not what I expected from android. Purchased S3 b/c I wanted larger screen size. Didn't realize all of the bugs or lack of features with it, some of which are listed below. 1. cannot take pictures while talking on the phone. 2. cannot move icons onto each other and have them automatically slide over ala iPhone. Have to manually drag icons out of the way on the same screen. 3. battery life is not as advertised. I am not a heavy user - mostly email, text and some phone usage. No video viewing. Can't get a full day. Have to recharge every night. 4. display brightness is inconsistent. Goes dark on even though I'm actively viewing screen (yes, I have turned on that feature in settings). 5. google music player less intuitive than iTunes. What's more, whenever I end a call on my bluetooth headset, it starts playing music even though I was not listening to any music (nor was google play active) prior to call. Have tried turning this feature off, but it's not possible. 6. screen has a poltergeist - active screen closes (not screen saver due to inactivity) or moves to different screen without my touching it. 7. mail sync application for yahoo doesn't include folders and when you drag items from inbox into yahoo folder on computer or other device they appear as a duplicate in inbox on S3. If deleted on S3, then deleted from folder. So you end up with lots of duplicates in your S3 inbox.

    Pros

    Cons

    • battery doesnt last long

    Best Uses

      The Galaxy S3 is a very great device but it tends to die fast. Overall I think Samsung could have done better on the battery. Other than that its a decent device.

          Think this is the best phone Samsung has made

          Pros

          • Durable
          • Realistic color

          Cons

            Best Uses

              I now own a Samsung Note 5, and I have to say I miss my Samsung S III. I'm leaning towards really liking the smaller size of the S III. Love the stylus on the Note 5 + the better Camera. However, the S III takes great pictures too!

                    • small screen for me

                    Best Uses

                      I had been with Verizon such a long time when they were original GTE, Airtouch then Verizon, their price kept going up and up so I switched to another carrier. While waiting and deciding on new replacement phone, this old Samsung Galaxy SIII performed flawlessly without any hick up while my note 4 would hang up or lock up, unfortunately SIII has a small screen other wise I would have continued using it. For Technology everyone bragged about how good their phones taking pictures or how fast it performed while you played game, but no one claimed how fast their phones would dial or connect fastest or has the best receiving signals I wish phone manufactures look into this in future as their key promotional

                              I have gotten it wet, crashed my motorcycle, crushed it in my pocket lifting heavy things... And this phone just keeps going. Nice job Samsung. It's old, but it's tough.
