Best phone out there

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

Samsung galaxy S3 GT-I9300 Unlocked, Stock Room, NO Root!

This phone is great. Very fast and good looking. The only thing is that it comes with a lot of preloaded APPs that I never use. I've heard non-Stock Rooms don't have these APPs that's why they are faster. Other than that, everything works flowless :)

The best Android phone I have owned so far

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

The biggest letdown I had, when SGS3 was shown to the world, was its curvy glossy plastic design which in my opinion didn't match the hype surrounding the device. Then I got the chance to sell my SGS2 for a good price and my carrier contract was due so I went for the Galaxy S III International Version. The design is so-so but being the last Samsung flagship, it always catches people's attention. The build quality is average and far from superb. But the features that really make this smartphone a leader in its class are: an outstanding 4.8" display, not for everyone though because it may be too big for tiny hands. This device exudes multimedia performance, name it: music and video quality, photo viewing, internet speediness, gaming. The camera is a mixed bag though, taking photos is extremely fast but quality is just OK for a high-end smartphone, on the other hand, video recording quality is very good. UI responsiveness and smoothness are certainly better than SGS2 but there are times when minimal lag is felt, of course this is just me being perfectionist. Smart Stay and new gestures like the one to take screenshots are great. I tried S Voice like twice and concluded it is as gimmicky as Siri, useless in my case. Battery life is superior to any other Android smartphone I owned before (Captivate, Infuse and SGS2), I consider myself a heavy user and I manage to squeeze 12 hours from that 2100mAh battery, that is more than my previous phones which delivered 8-10 hours at most. Overall...

Great phone!!

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

I can't complain. I find the phone easy and fun to use. I have absolutely NO issues with build quality, and haven't had any issues with the glossy coating peeling. The phone travels in my pocket quite nicely. The one software issue I'd like updated is storage. I'd like to be able to have apps load to the SD card. However, with 32 gb of internal storage, and a 32 gb SD card, I haven't even come close to filling the phone.

Build quality 10/10 I don't want a glass body as it is too fragile. I keep my phone in my pocket, so I don't want a metal case that will get dented. I think the plastic is more durable. The glossy coating makes it look and feel top-notch.
Reception 9/10 I gave this a nine because of my carrier (Sprint). While I get great reception in and around Minneapolis, I traveled to L.A. this summer and the reception was spotty, at best. This isn't the phone's issue, it's Sprint.
Call quality 10/10
Internet 10/10 While I can't get LTE yet, I've noticed a significant improvement in internet over my HTC EVO 4G
Multimedia 10/10
Camera 10/10 LOVE the camera. Great pictures, no lag.
UI speed 10/10 No lag...GREAT
Everyday usage 10/10
Text input 10/10 Big screen = bigger keys = less mistakes for those with bigger fingers!!
Display 10/10 Gorgeous
Battery 10/10 I make it through the day with moderate usage. Here's the key...I CAN CHANGE MY OWN BATTERY!!! I always carry a spare

Pros

  • Big display
  • FAST!!
  • Decent battery life AND i can change my own battery
  • LOTS of storage
  • Fun software
  • MicroSD storage up to 64GB

Cons

  • Sprint's spotty reception in some areas

Upon seeing it in the internet, i told myself i must have it. I must have never been more wrong in my life. After 3 days of use, that cheap glossy finish of the back cover started peeling off big time! Very disgusting! I payed a fortune for this and that's what i would get?! It's an abomination! And the cheap gray lining on the sides? Started having scratches after 10 days of use. argghh! I bought a new back cover (which costed me some dollars once m
ore!) and when i receive it, i would definitely sell this cheap slab of a plastic toy. The screen seems to be gorgeous at first but as time went by, you started getting tired having all colors turned dark and over saturated. Not a good buy at all. Uber cheap plastic glossy build and dark screen. Frustrating much!

Performance great, but quality of finishing really poor. Easy to scratch or damage the screen. I has cheaper phones with better Quality ex: LG optimus 2x.

Best Phone I have ever owned.

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

I love this phone so much. I have owned an iPhone and Windows Phone, and this one easily tops both. It tops Windows because of customization and app selection. And it destroys iPhone in customization. Honestly, I can do so much with this phone. I just love it. The screen size makes it so nice to watch videos on and playing games is also really nice on it.

Unlike most, I actually like the design alot! The plastic isn't my fave but that actual look of the device is very nice in my opinion. The camera is also excellent! Just as good as the iPhone (which is a very good camera).

The software is incredibly smooth (very strange for an android phone) probably due to the beefed up hardware specs like 2 gigs of ram and dual-core processor. This phone also has soooo many little but nice features.

Just to name a few: Swipe over screen to take screenshot
Face unlock
Calling by putting phone up to ear while in messages
4 apps at lock screen that you can go straight to


Build quality 9/10 It may be plastic, but it is extremely well built and sturdy. It also feels solid in the hand.
Reception 10/10 I get extremely good reception! We were in a friends basement and we both had AT&T, and my phone had service but my friends LG Nitro did not have service.
Call quality 10/10 Nothing to complain about. I hear them well, they hear me well... nuff said
Internet 10/10 Very fast internet. Plus the screen size makes it so much nicer to browse
Multimedia 10/10 I use Pandora for music mostly, but for watching movies this phone just rocks.
Camera 10/10 Excellent camera with good sharpness and color reproduction.
UI speed 10/10 With the beefy specs and Ice Cream Sandwich, this phone can breeze through the UI without any hiccups.
Everyday usage 10/10 It makes me happy.
Text input 10/10 The screen size once again adds to the awesomeness of other features. No problems here.
Display 10/10 I could spend a day talking about the screen on this baby. Movies looks super awesome, texting is so easy, and browsing the web is a joy with this screen. LOVE IT! Best part of the phone.
Battery 8/10 I usually have to charge it sometime during the day. But it does well considering the screen it has to power combined with LTE.

Pros

  • Screen (size, ppi, color)
  • Physical Home Button
  • Camera
  • Form Factor
  • Ice Cream Sandwich
  • Amazing Features
  • Android
  • Google Play Store

Cons

  • Battery life could be better

Amazing Phone!

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

I've had this phone for about 3 weeks and I've got to admit it's simply amazing. I have made the switch from the iPhone 4 (something that I never saw myself doing) and I have not missed it one bit. I am a huge Apple geek (I own an iPod, iPad, Macbook, and the iPhone, I even own stock in apple) so for me switching was not an easy decision. But when I went into the store and played with the phone, I knew I had to have it. The display is beautiful, it's very easy to use, and what I like most is how easily it can be customized. I love the widgets (something iPhones don't have). The camera is superb and takes gorgeous pics (including panoramas). The build quality is also very soild. Even though it's plasitc its very put together, there is no wiggle room for any buttons or back cover. The battery easily gets you through the day with moderate use.

There were a couple things that the iPhone performed better at in my opinion. The stock QWERTY keyboard is much easier to use and the predictive text is better on iPhone. But there are keyboard apps that can be downloaded for android that perform better. S III does have swype but I'm not a fan. The iPhone also felt smoother when scrolling through web pages or up and down lists. Not that there was a lag or anything with the Galaxy but it just felt more natural on the iPhone. (nothing major).

Overall, this phone is phenomenal and I can't put it down.

It is a bit pointless reviewing this phone as it has a major and insurmountable flaw which over rides any perceived qualitative aspects of the handset. The build quality is shocking to say the least! I have the blue variant and it developed a crack near the USB port. I have NEVER dropped or damaged the phone in anyway and the crack is a straight line stress fracture, there are several examples on the net - see androidauthority/knowyour mobile webs sites - upon contacting Samsung, I was told it is not covered by warranty and I need to take it to a samsung repair centre. This is going to cost £135 to repair! The Service Centre stated that they need to charge as until the fault is acknowledged by Samsung, they risk not getting recompensed by Samsung. The centre has had approximately 30 with a similar problem and has reported the issue to Samsung. Samsung is refusing to take ownership of this issue which leaves this customer, sorry, ex-customer out of pocket. Shoody customer care and build quality makes this a no brainer for me......

What I think

dollface918 has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

After I returned my htc evo 4g lte (which I loved) because I couldn't handle Sprint's slow network, I headed off to tmobile to find a new phone and network. I was leaning towards the htc one s because I am a big fan of htc phones but my salesperson told me to try this one because you get more for your money. I got the blue one with no problem since the white is soo ugly (personal opinion). It also has a big screen like the Evo which i felt i was downgrading with the one S. Honestly, I consider this more a guy phone. I had problems separating the nofication sound for text/emails for a week, it's not under settings which would have taken me a minute to fix on the htc phone. A week later I found out how to set up the winglets and now the phone is finally growing on me. The smileys on the text are soo ugly on this phone and the phone is Very sensitive to the key pads. I'm thinking people who really love this phones are advanced users who really know about software. I will say this, this phone has great battery life and Internet surfing... No problems. I usually get the full bars of 4g speed and i can pull up any web page I want, plays great sounds, and Netflix gives me no probs. Not love at first site but it's growing on me.

Unbiased Review

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

I would like to start off by saying I am a fanboy of no kind. I have a new phone every 2 months. I extensively test every platform I use, and I have nothing against any OS. Currently I am using a Pre 3, S G3, and an iPad, I just recently let my Lumia 800 go. All of which i have used for quite some time. I am a web designer and have a deep appreciation for good design. I have to, it is my job, if i did not understand good design, the internet would still look like it did back in 1999. I was very excited to get this, but does it live up to all the hype?

Build Quality
The build quality was expected. Samsung uses cheap plastic, and anymore, their phones feel very cheap. The trade off, is all of their phones are very lightweight, but I prefer a better "feeling" phone. This is just my opinion. Many people i talk to actually like the plastic feel. This shouldn't be factored into the review. It is purely opinion.

Samsung phones have week antennas. This phone follows suit. All of my other devices get a better signal whether it be on WiFi or cellular data. I really wish Samsung would fix this. because of this, often times my call quality suffers.

Call quality
On my end, i usually never have a problem in a phone call. Typically i can hear everyone just fine, but there are times where i don't have service where my other friends with the same service do. Occasionally the person i am speaking too complains about static and an echo. I am not entirely sure which side this is on ( mine or...

This phone really is the best phone I have owned. I have owned the Iphone and the new HTC EVO 4G LTE. The S3 is by far the best phone. Easy to use or as complicated as you want it. Say what you want about the pentile screen but it looks great. Call quality is the best, speed is fantastic. Camera takes great pics but I wish it was a little easier to use and had a full screen image when taking pics. I have it on Sprint and the speed is fine. It's hard to put down and I can't understand why anyone would choose the Iphone over the S3. S voice is very good more freindly than Suri. Samsung continues to do what every Cell Phone maker should do, the three B's, Build it Bigger, Better and keep that removable Battery.

Average phone, nothing special

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

I have S3 for one months now and I am not that impressed with the phone. In general phone is great, had some problems with network (i just lost it some time) also software is not that good. I experienced some lacking during browsing the web. Good part is camera, very good pictures but only in good conditions. When there is dark the 2.6 lens is not that good anymore. All in all, good phone, but in my opinion overestimated. Also i don't like the fack that there are all the time fingerprints on the back (i have blue version). I took blue over white one cuz white looks sooo cheep.

Kicks the hell out of the iPhone 4S.

elirev4 has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

This is the best phone I've ever had!
It's just amazing, light weight, big and beautiful 720P screen, amazing FULL HD camera, the best TouchWiz so far, awesome web browsing experience. fast as hell (not a single lag), really thin, comfortable in the hand (it's not so big as they say, it fits in my palm really good and I have an average palm).

The best phone of the year with no doubts what so ever, Apple already failed (we saw the iOS 6 and there's nothing new, same old boring grid of icons), now everyone are waiting to see the new design of the phone...

Build quality 10/10
Reception 10/10
Call quality 10/10
Internet 10/10
Multimedia 10/10
Camera 10/10
UI speed 10/10
Everyday usage 10/10
Text input 10/10
Display 10/10
Battery 7/10

Pros

  • Big and beautiful 720P screen!
  • not a single lag, very fast!
  • awesome game experience!
  • And all the stuff I mentioned earlier in the review.

Cons

  • Not the best battery I've ever seen.
