Not a bad daily driver

nickdlr has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review

I had one for AT&T for about a year and a half. It doesn't do great with drops - my screen is shattered from falling 2 feet onto hardwood. Touchwiz is garbage - bloatware galore - and it shows in the UI. Besides that, the UI is pretty and works well when it works. Good screen size, pretty good camera and video recording, customizability is pretty good too. Solid phone for the price.

Not that bad.

na7noo7 has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review

I have had it for 1 year and a half, I liked the screen but I hate the plastic build, terrible UI Speed, and the battery drains fast. Overall it's a great phone, it's getting a bit outdated so I decided to post a review now.

Build quality 3/10 Made out of Plastic, but great dimensions.
Reception 8/10 No 4G in my country, but great reception
Call quality 9/10 Has a great call quality I heard, but I haven't made a call
Internet 8/10 Great data speed, but the browser is a bit slow, just download chrome.
Multimedia 10/10 Great screen, even though it's not 1080p or Quad HD
Camera 7/10 Not a great camera since it doesn't have fancy features or image stabilization but takes great pictures and is an 8MP one.
UI speed 1/10 Horrible lag
Everyday usage 9/10 I don't like the UI and apps for daily usage, but if I installed a ROM it's a really good phone.
Text input 5/10 Great swipe to type, but I hate the look of the keyboard, just download swiftkey or something.
Display 10/10 Great 720p screen, as I said with Multimedia
Battery 9/10 Drains faster than I thought, but great battery overall.

Pros

  • Great screen for watching movies
  • Android OS
  • 8MP rear camera
  • Quad Core processor

Cons

  • Battery drains fast
  • Laggy UI
  • Terrible plastic build
  • Too much Bloatware

S3 is a perfect phone.Display is very nice and clean, good colors and viewing angels.Processor quad core is very good, and works very well, it can handle everything.I mostly like a camera.Makes outstanding photos!Has many features, I think that made of S2 and S3 is best thing Samsung ever did.Honestly, i like more S3 then S4.Phone is totally worth the money, in Serbia new phone is 210 Euros, which is awsome price for this device.Buy it, you wont regret it!

It was good.....for awhile

Jett2701 has owned it for less than year before publishing this review

The first 3 or 4 weeks i was so unbelivevably happy the phone worked amazingly. after that it lagged so much, and because of a very bad software update the speaker would randomly turn on while listening to music with headphones, samsung said there was no way to fix it....it wasnt a very big deal but a later software update stopped the camera from working so i rooted it to Cyanogen Mod

Build quality 5/10 Very cheap and hard to hold but incredibly durable
Reception 6/10 Bad LTE and 4G reception (AT&T)
Call quality 6/10 Average call quality (AT&T)
Internet 9/10
Multimedia 6/10 Big,bright screen is good but the speaker is terrible
Camera 3/10 Very low quality images for and 8 mp camera
UI speed 4/10 I couldn't stand Touchwiz after 4 months I rooted it and am currently using Cyanogen Mod
Everyday usage 5/10 It lags a lot and overheats doing simple tasks (playing temple run,flow or texting)
Text input 9/10 Phone is a bit too wide but has a very big keyboard with swype
Display 6/10 Not very good for a 720p screen too bright yet impossible to see when outside
Battery 5/10 Sometimes battery would last for a whole school day( texting,listening to music) other times only 1/4 of the day ,but the battery is replaceable.

Pros

  • Big Screen
  • Micro SD Card Slot
  • Replaceable Battery
  • Durable

Cons

  • Battery Life
  • Runs Hot
  • Average Display
  • Lags ALOT

tarifacarlos has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review

Is the only phone capable to do everything i want. Removable battery, sd card slot, good processor... Only one disadvantage: poor ram memory. But none has good ram and the other features. Galaxy S4 is also a good smartphone, but not many changes from S3.

Build quality 8/10 Plastic
Reception 8/10
Call quality 10/10 Nice
Internet 9/10 Fast, but not 4G
Multimedia 10/10 Reproduces almost everything
Camera 10/10 Great
UI speed 9/10 Lags when you have a lot of things, only 1GB of RAM
Everyday usage 10/10 Perfect
Text input 10/10 Perfect, screen size perfect.
Display 10/10
Battery 10/10 Removable, the best. You can have more than one and have a battery unlimited phone.

Pros

  • Removable battery
  • SD cards slot
  • Awesome Processor
  • Android
  • USB OTG

Cons

  • Only 1GB of RAM

Internet 6/10 Browser lags a bit with only 1GB ram

Camera 8/10 Great for 8MP
UI speed 6/10 Lags with only 1GB ram
Everyday usage 7/10 Great

  • Great display
  • Great camera
  • Great CPU

Cons

Samsung Galaxy s3:worst phone and Samsung: worst after sales service provider

vishalgupta.nitb has owned it for less than year before publishing this review

And the well reputed Samsung Mobile India finally accepted that " We will not repair your phone under warranty" in warranty time. Reason being "You have misused the phone. You would have charged your phone when light was fluctuating" and " You would have thrown your phone in water" etc etc.
Dear Samsung, please prove it if you are so sure about misusing. I could also say that I was given the faulty motherboard etc etc.

I understand it is just 10 days of my warranty time just so it is justified from your side to delay the matter. You cannot even accept the responsibility of the the issue I am facing from last 9 months, just after 2 months of purchasing. Dear Samsung Mobile India, I would like to bring to your notice that I live in a hostel where there are many persons charge their phone at a time. If fluctuation would have happened, many of my hostel mates' phones of the brands like zen,lava,spice etc would have burnt completely. But no other motherboard is burnt except my flagship phone S3's motherboard. I was fool to pay a huge 30k money for a phone I thought will be the value for money. I should have purchased the phones worth 10k (the money you are asking now to replace motherboard) of the brands lava, spice etc giving same feature as yours whose motherboards can bear minor light fluctuations. Dear Samsung, I have purchased and paid the huge sum for S3 just for your brand. I had never thought that would be the worst decision of my life. Customer care representatives are saying...

How awful!

MrCharlieGCarr has owned it for less than year before publishing this review

This was my first 'proper' smartphone, and I cannot believe how bad it is, first of all the UI; it lagged using the stock Android supplied to an infuriating degree. I managed to rectify this by installing Cyanogen Mod, which improved things no end. Camera is poor; there's too many cons to mention

Build quality 1/10 Screen much too weak Back cover flimsy Too prone to scratches Hard to grip
Reception 10/10 I've had no problems, or at least phone related ones
Call quality 5/10 The speaker is temperamental, and sometimes it doesn't work at all
Internet 9/10 The screen makes browsing webpages a pleasant experience because of it's size, and the resolution makes webpages appear crisp
Multimedia 8/10 The resolution could be higher, but the vast majority of content plays very nicely and looks fantastic
Camera 5/10 The quality is poor, even when looking at the images on the phone screen. When transferred to a PC, the problem renders the camera too bad to use if you care about the resolution and quality of your images
UI speed 3/10 Had to install a custom OS in order to really use the phone as a daily driver (Cyanogen Mod) The 1GB of ram was insufficient
Everyday usage 4/10
Text input 10/10 The keyboard is very easy to use, and there are many more available on the Play Store. No faults
Display 7/10 The resolution makes it difficult to make wallpapers fit properly, and it seems very power hungry, even at low levels of brightness. Really needed to be full HD considering the screen size
Battery 1/10 Barely 7 hours, even if turned off for 1/2 hours. It is infuriating at points, and should really have been higher, because of the screen specifications etc. Probably the worst aspect of the phone.. The battery is also prone to getting very hot

Pros

  • Nice screen size
  • Expandable by Micro-SD (32GB)
  • Almost universal charger

Cons

  • Awful lag on stock UI
  • Poor battery life
  • Very easily damaged
  • Flimsy construction
  • Generates a lot of heat (battery)
  • Poor battery life
  • Because of the rate new phones are brought out, it makes it redundant within less than half a year
  • Lack of updates
  • App crashes

Unbelievably disappointing

entactix has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review

I've owned Samsung's old flagship smartphone for over a year (even an hour seems like an eternity in hell), and the experience left an astoundingly bitter taste.

I've constantly experienced lag issues, painfully slow performance in almost all situations - for example: the stock camera or browser would take 5-8 seconds to start up, random restarts, apps freezing. I tried every official and unofficial tip and workaround I could get - to no avail.

It was all blamed - of course - on issues with the way I used the phone, app problems and so on - until allowing support to test the phone personally. While they were looking for a solution, the phone died completely (good timing, for once) and I was issued a refurbished unit as a replacement. New phone, same problems, but this one didn't completely sign off, so I was stuck with it, waiting for an "update that would solve such issues".

Apart from the phone issues, I went through 4 (four) chargers in 9 months - eventually, something would happen to them that would cause an inexplicably slow charge (about 30% over 7 hours). Once I switched to using chargers from other manufacturers, the charging issues stopped.

Since I know people who did not experience these problems, it might have just been bad luck (twice in a row), but such crippling software issues, cheap-looking exterior and unhelpful support make this phone a laughable "flagship". As long as the company sticks to these practices, I will not buy a Samsung smartphone again.

Build quality 6/10 Cheap feel and look, ugly plastic all over
Reception 9/10 Rare call drops (on a good network), but otherwise good.
Call quality 9/10 The background noise filtering could do with some work, other than that, nothing to complain about.
Internet 3/10 Pathetically slow start-up and rendering.
Multimedia 7/10 Good multimedia capabilities, clear and adequately loud sound even through the speakers - but also laggy.
Camera 6/10 Good shots - but only when the camera felt like starting up. The fact that it didn't remember my settings was a big let-down.
UI speed 3/10 3D games ran smoother than the phone's own UI.
Everyday usage 2/10 A pain.
Text input 1/10 The keyboard would freeze up, then come back to life, remember the keys I pressed, but it would detect long instead of normal presses, which would jumble up the text entirely and I'd have to start over. I wanted to bite it.
Display 9/10 Bright and beautiful, a little more sharpness would have made it perfect.
Battery 6/10 Not nearly enough power, but all smartphones have this issue

Pros

  • Beautiful display
  • Games would run smooth (ironically)
  • Expandable memory

Cons

  • Poor performance in all situations
  • Unexplicable lagging & restarting
  • Poor support
  • Slow, bloated UI
  • Low quality feel and look
  • Slow to come updates

andruch12 has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

i bought it because it was on sale unlocked in my country and turned out to be amazing. I have wished to have since it's release and i can tell wasn't dissapointed. The phone itsef is gorgeous, but seems too fragile so with a case y seems much more heavier and thicker, but that's just personal opinion. Overall the performance is great, i have encounter any issues except that it heats a lot when playing games, any kind even with the ones of low graphics.

It could be a great phone, but it have a lot of problems. it have a great camera, and good quality of phone calls. But it was so slow, and it was too much laggy, I see others sgs3 and everyone have the same problems. I finally changed for a Xperia ZL and i am happy.

Call quality 10/10 had problems with headphones to listen to me, but when pulled and worked the noise canceller sound was excellent, even if the environment was very noisy
Internet 7/10 still have the original browser of android, and it wasnt too quikly
Multimedia 9/10 great sound and multimedia options, only lacks to control the music with the lock screen.
Camera 9/10
UI speed 5/10 it remembers me the old motorola defy, full of lags, and have to reboot. I think it was for the fu**g touch wiz from samsung
Everyday usage 6/10 aveces me dan ganas de tirarlo por la ventana, por suerte lo vendi y me compre el xperia zl
Text input 9/10
Display 7/10 Nice. But in sunlight it was very dificult
Battery 6/10 i have to charge at least 2 times at day

the best phone i ever have

yousef.gamal has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

Samsung galaxy s3 is the best smartphone at all.
S3 vs HTC ONE x:
In addition htc one x has got a faster cpu,but it isn't used as well as Samsung's. for example in SGS3 you can see your video when you are sending a message.or when you are browsing web,you see that samsung is too better than htc.
Also SGS3 uses a 4.8 Super AMOLED screen that takes much less charge than Super IPS LCD which is used in htc one x and the colors are more living in SGS3.
S3 vs Apple iphone 5 :
It is not fair to compare iphone5 with SGS 3! Because iphone 5 has come after SGS3. But you can not compare the Quad core1400 MHz cpu of the SGS3 with the Dual core 1300MHz cpu of the iphone5!
I have to say that apple has got a very good Build quality and everyone knows that but it doesn't mean that apple is better.I think both of them are good phones but SGS3 has got a better results than iphone 5.

Not a flagship or upgrade (anymore?)

Wizard has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

Fine if u only look at the display from a distance, don't shoot photo's indoors, don't mind upgrades are delayed to not outshine S4, and 'quadcore' sounds better than dualcore when recent dualcores are much faster.

- Display has only green dots in 720p: red and blue are only half 720p. And shows notable green shade at even slight angles :(
- CPU and GPU are old: newer dualcores outperform S3
- Updates are held back to favour S4
- Camera only shines in bright light: is easily outperformed by my old Xperia Ray from 2010 (and was half the price)
- Build quality is fragile and lacks finesse. Even my old Ray has aluminum sides, and will withstand regular drops 10 times better.

Flagship?? Even in 2012? I don't see it. My Xperia Ray did everything I could possibly want and need, and thios was not an improvement. Sent it back. Especialy costing 3x what I payed for my old Xperia Ray, early 2012.

Build quality 4/10 Flimsy, and only plastic
Reception 7/10
Call quality 7/10
Internet 7/10
Multimedia 7/10
Camera 4/10 Very poor in low light conditions. Way worse than my old and cheap Xperia Ray. Nice that it performs well at daylight conditions, but that's only half the snaps I make. The other half will be way worse with this device. That's not an improvement 2 me..
UI speed 5/10 Quadcore is outperformed by modern dualcores. Easily
Everyday usage 7/10
Text input 7/10
Display 2/10 Only all the green dots are pressent, red and blue only half. And has red/green shade at even slight angles (check the reviews). Disapointing 4 (once) a flagship.
Battery 7/10

Pros

  • Interface, camera performance in bright light

Cons

  • - Display not 720p at all and has red-green shades at even slight angles

like seriously, the best phone ever!!!

agentZ has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review

For anyone thinking to buy a phone, this is it! Its simply amazing! Dont mind the number of negative reviews on here. Its feel is superior. Its OS is second to none. The phones GPRS internet is even faster than 3G of some others. Its display is amazing, vibrant, what can i say? It has beautiful multiwindow technology where you could literally check your emails and watch a youtube video at the same time. Every single time you will be amazed about how much technology has been put into it. For example, when you plug in your headphones, it suggests a number of apps that could run with your headphones at once. It has auto brightness to automatically adjust the brightness of the screen when depending on how much light there is around you. There's a gorgeous light that keeps on blinking in standby mode when you got mail or a message. Its big enough to enable you text with two hands for thos e who big hands like me. Its thin as hell, charges real quick. Just amazing!!!
