Excelent Phone, no more no less

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

The Galaxy S III deserves all the sucess it had over more than a year of its release. If only I hadn't the impression that it would break in pieces after the first fall, but then again I am a declared Nokia fan.

BIG regret, like going back 20 years

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

I obsessed and agonised over this phone for nearly a year until I could afford to buy one outright. Now i am crying about it. Ok, its fantastic at everything......Except being a phone!! My reception is reminiscent of my first phone 20 years ago, I have NO signal in my house, garden, most places at work, etc and it drops out completely even in high area. While my old Nokia N95 proudly boasts a full signal with the same network.
Ive tried all the recommended settings to boost it, but nothing. I am gutted. Have no choice but to sell asap.

Build quality 6/10 solid and useable
Reception 1/10 Utter rubbish....Lined up with 5 other phones, Iphone 4 & 5, Nokia N95, Most basic Nokia and antique Sony Ericsson they ALL have signal, except the Galaxy S3
Call quality 5/10 Depends on signal!
Internet 10/10 Great.....on Wifi only
Multimedia 10/10
Camera 10/10
UI speed 9/10
Everyday usage 3/10 Great at everything....except phone and text
Text input 7/10 good choices on keybaord
Display 10/10
Battery 8/10 Not as good as the 5 days with constant use I am used to with old phone, but I understand this is good for a smartphone. Minimum applications on.

Pros

  • Large fantastic screen, easy to use.

Cons

  • Signal, signal, signal, reception reception reception

It is good to be the King.

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

The (by far) best Smartphone i had! Trust me I'm an engineer! Smartphones i had so far are: iPhone 3G, 3Gs, 4s, 5, HTC One X, i9000 and i9100 and i was never so amazed by a Phone like with the Galaxy S3. Its worth every $ or € you spend on it!

Build quality 10/10 I know everyone says Build Quality is bad, Cheap plastic and so on. But thats not true! The plastic feels pleasant in your hand. It doesnt slip of your hand.
Reception 10/10 The phone with the best reception i had so far.
Call quality 10/10 It's fantastic!!!
Internet 10/10 The big display makes it a wonderful device to browse the internet.
Multimedia 10/10 Its comes with lots of codec support! And you can simply copy paste media into your device, what do you want more? (Not to mention the Wonderful Colors of the AMOLED Display when watching films).
Camera 10/10 One of the best Cellphone cams on market. Burst Shot is amazing!
UI speed 10/10 Well the quad-core processor does its job. A small tip for all android users, get Startupmanager to speed your phone up.
Everyday usage 10/10 You can do anything you want! No limitations!
Text input 10/10 Swype is the best Text Input i know so far, so nothing to say more.
Display 10/10 Two words: Super AMOLED! And is really super!!!
Battery 10/10 Well it got me 2 Work days, best achievement since i9000 for me.

Pros

  • MicroSD (+64 GB)
  • Amoled Display
  • Replaceble Battery, Battery Life
  • Very fast CPU (Quad Core)
  • Multiwindow (or as i call it Real Multitasking)
  • NFC, WiFi-Direct
  • Notification LED
  • Feels light in your hand
  • Customizable, Motions, Smart Reations
  • I could go on with Pros, but there is no more space left :)

Cons

  • The design could be better

Lots and Lots of Disappointments

reality101 has owned it for less than year before publishing this review

The crappiest piece of junk i have ever owned. At first in the first few weeks i was totally in love with it, showing it off to anyone i knew but as time past by i started releasing problems that kept re occurring. My first problem was that suddenly my phone randomly got damaged in hardware and restarted in factory mode all by itself. This pissed me of a lot bcuase all my pictures and games and music etc had all been deleted. then my phones battery started draining rapidly even on sleeping mode making it last for half a day at moderate use. To make things worse, the cheap plastic has also started to peal of... now my once glorious gladiator phone that destroyed all phones looks like a piece of s**t with laggy movements and crap as battery. My advice, get the HTC One or any htc phone, don't trust Samsung to make the premium device because they will guaranty you a large disappointment. Even the iPhone would be a better solution (although that would be my last choice) . Don't buy this phone - Its not worth it

No disapointement

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

The best smartphone I ever owned so far.
I was owning an HTC desire and GS2 before this one, they were both great phones at their time. I hesitate quite a bit to switch from the GS2 to GS3 but, really, my user experience increased dramatically.
So no disappointment here, GS3 is a great phone.

Build quality 8/10 Ok, plastic isn't "premium". However the overall build quality is good. Never had any problem of scratches or anything. I dropped it accidentally several times and it was like nothing ever happened.
Reception 9/10 Good reception, nothing more, nothing less. Actually better than my colleague owning an iPhone 5
Call quality 9/10 Very good call quality
Internet 9/10 Very fast internet browsing with the stock browser but also with alternative ones
Multimedia 10/10 Tons of possibilities. I'm able to read all kinds od full HD videos without any lags, music etc. DLNA makes you hable to beam your videos on you TV in a click.
Camera 9/10 Very good. My friend were always amazed by the quality of the pictures I was able to shoot in the complete darkness (with flash of course)
UI speed 9/10 Quick and reactive
Everyday usage 10/10 Really pleasant to use, all functionalities are not always useful everyday. but what's great is when you need them they are present
Text input 9/10 no issue here. swipe mode is a great feature.
Display 10/10 Amazing screen, deep dark and colorful. Like it or not, I love it.
Battery 9/10 good autonomy compared to smartphone standards.

Pros

  • Great user experience with no frustration
  • Powerful device (no lags, slowness,...) in any situation
  • Amazing screen
  • OS/UI updates planning followed by Samsung
  • Replaceable battery and MicroSD port

Cons

  • Average form factor design
  • Trend to duplicate Google existing feature
  • Average build-in speakers power and position on the back

One of the best phone i have ever used

safi.2905 has owned it for less than year before publishing this review

The phone is fantastic.. I am using an intl version of s3 with quad core exynos chipset. The phone is fluid no doubt but at times it does tend to stutter. Rich video format suppot and very user friendly. outdoor visibility is bright sunlight is a problem (probably coz of AMOLED) but overall its good. The back of the phone looks kinda bland but overall its a complete phone with room for improvement in certain departments.

Build quality 5/10 Bland looking back.

International Samsung Galaxy S3

decent4u has owned it for less than year before publishing this review

Best phone I have used till now. Everything is superb. Rooted at first but now Unrooted because it started lagging with most ROMS. After unrooting its fast and responsive with no problems at all.
It's Battery last with more than one day with me with Playing some games Using Camera 1 or 2 times a day Reading Some News And Some little calls throughout the day.

Build quality 9/10 Not the Best Build Quality Out there, But Not Bad Either.
Reception 10/10 Best! No signal problem.I have more signals even when most phones nearby have 1 or none
Call quality 10/10 Nice call Quality, Nice Clear Sound Not only on my end but the other end(whom I'am talking to) also gets clear sound without the noise from background
Internet 10/10 Fast Browsing Experience With Nice large Screen. Perfect!
Multimedia 10/10 No Problem EveryThing Plays Nicely With Great Quality
Camera 10/10 Best Used till Now. Compared the Camera With My friends Mobile Phones guess What I WON :)
UI speed 10/10 As told Earlier Nice speed and responsiveness with project butter but without rooting I had better Results Overall
Everyday usage 9/10 Nice phone but using it with One hand is not the easiest thing in the world And it becomes worse when u are sweating in the summer
Text input 9/10 Nice, Easy And Fast text Input when when using in portrait mode but shifting to Landscape not the best typing Experience
Display 9/10 There are Better Displays Out There in the Market but this one's not bad just not the best
Battery 10/10 Better then my previous mobile phone which were the HTC and iPhone

A relatively good phone.

recond9 has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review

The biggest fault of this phone is the fact that you can't install apps on the external SD card,witch is a shame if you have a 64 GB card.
Except that ,the phone is very good and I highly recommend it.

Build quality 8/10 Good quality plastic ,but easy to scratch.
Reception 8/10 Maybe is just mine but i am always getting only half of signal,when phones around me get full bars.But overall that doesn't affect call quality.
Call quality 10/10 Very loud and clear sound.
Internet 10/10 Good,but not all the times.
Multimedia 10/10 You have every multimedia thing you need in this phone.
Camera 8/10 Compared to other phones at this price,camera quality is not that good especially indoor( for photos).Video recording is superb,the only complain i have is that the clips are very big in 1080p. For example 15 minutes of video has around 3.7 GB.
UI speed 9/10 It gets a little laggy after you install more apps. (Skype and the Voice Assistant are quite harmful for the UI Speed, at least in my case)
Everyday usage 9/10 it's quite wide and a bit hard to hold in one hand, especially at night in bed when the back of the phone gets all slippery.
Text input 10/10 Great keyboard,through the landscape one is quite hard to get used to.
Display 9/10 The display has amazing black tones and vivid colors,but is not that bright as iPhone's display for example.
Battery 9/10 Well,i choose this phone over the One X for the great battery life,and so far it's ok. With 1 hour of 3G browsing,2-3 hours of music listing,a couple of text messages and 30 minutes of talking,I can easily get one day of battery life (12-16 hours)

Pros

  • Good battery
  • Large display
  • Great support from developers(Xda)
  • Touch Wiz has one of the best interfaces on android
  • Snappy camera
  • Notification LED is very hady
  • Fast internet connection
  • Good speaker quality

Cons

  • You can't install apps on the external Micro SD card
  • Scratches easy
  • It's wide

Alot of amazing features that make the galaxy S3 the best phone in market today as it features a super amoled 4.8'' screen that goes perfect with colors especially dark ones, it also features S-voice, smart stay, S-beam, All-sharecast and android ICS that is up-gradable to jelly bean including many other amazing features .
all i can say its the best phone made till now and i wont change it till the S4 comes to life

The Samsung best galactic phone

mgMobs3 has owned it for less than year 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.

One great phone!

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

The Best phone I ever had,I must say all it need is better software optimization and software updates must come to my country earlier. If you're a new android user, your money is worth it whit this device.. Goodluck

Build quality 9/10 Though it's made entirely of plastic, It's sturdy and feels solid!
Reception 9/10 Maybe it's my network's fault why I sometimes receive low reception but overall its good
Call quality 9/10 Great! I Very clear voice!
Internet 10/10 It's fast but our my network sucks
Multimedia 10/10 One of the best Multimedia experience! Great screen and loud speakers = Damn
Camera 10/10 Very snappy! Though I have a hard time using Macro shots, can't focus on my subject that much
UI speed 9/10 Touchwiz UX crashes more often after upgrading to 4.1.1
Everyday usage 10/10 Gives everything I need
Text input 10/10
Display 10/10 I'm loving the AMOLED, but sometimes I used the Natural Mode
Battery 9/10 battery hog, need to charge it 2-3x a day because I always play a game using WI-FI, but with normal use,I usually achieved 2 days of batt life

Pros

  • Everything

Cons

  • Touchwiz crashes after JB update
  • Lags when net connection is on and you open too many apps

Truly Amazing Phone.

phonemaster1992 has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review

This phone is incredible. It is blazing fast, allows you to do so many things, many more than any apple phone, and the removable battery allows you to add an extended battery to lengthen its' life far beyond many non-smart phones. Great phone and I love it.

BUT THERE IS ONE DRAWBACK!!!!
It can be overcome with Amazon.com
The charging/syncing port is very, very spotty. Mine bent and I have to use an external battery charger to charge my phone. I have other friends who have the same issue. But other than that, it is an AWESOME PHONE!!

Build quality 9/10 Great except the charging port.
Reception 10/10 Great reception everywhere.
Call quality 10/10 Loud and clear!
Internet 10/10 Faster than a cheetah on cocaine.
Multimedia 10/10 Videos and Pictures look amazing!
Camera 10/10 Realized my poor picture quality was my bad photography skills, not the phone.
UI speed 10/10
Everyday usage 10/10
Text input 10/10
Display 10/10
Battery 8/10 Decent on a full charge but HIGHLY recommend getting an extended battery

Pros

  • Screen is so Crisp
  • Amazingly Fast
  • So Customizable
  • BIG Screen

Cons

  • Charging Port is very spotty
  • Battery can drain in low service area
