First off let me say I had the original Droid by motorola which I replaced with the iphone 4. My two year contract signed in blood ended so it was time for a new phone! Black Friday the GS3 was $50! I of course grabbed one up. First off let me say this is nothing like the Droid 1; Android has clearly jumped leaps and bounds beyond what it once was. I can do a million things on this phone that I couldn't with the iphone. The camera is fantastic; easily comparable to the iphone 5* The speed on the phone is just as good as the iphone 5 (theres a smallllll difference with the i5 being a smallllll bit faster). The build of the phone is just ok; i5 is far superior in regards to how it is constructed and feels. Samsung needs to stop with the cheap plastic and look at Apple. I want to see some aluminum or glass..something a little fancier for a flagship phone. Some deal breakers- cannot turn 4g off; kills battery fast, KIES (samsungs itunes ish program) SUCKS, updates- when/where/how...still an issue with android and samsung, the music player is a bit glitchy, and this is a huge issue I have with all Android phones- value. They are replaced too fast, there are too many, there is no..resale value..or "coolness" to them..this is why in my opinion the Iphone and apple still dominate. I should note I plan to return this for the i5; but my reasons are simply- I like facetime a lot and skype sucks, I bought a lot through my old iphone I want back, really I like having the IT thing and not worrying...
Needed better Quality Control and build quality

Way too thin and plastic. Strongest thing was screen and that doesn't say much. Screen looked good for most part and they smoothed out the limited black levels so not as noticable...but they were still there. This black level stuff is annoying too as S3 and the Notes all have it but none of the other devices do. Lots of screen defects too if you make a solid black screen that has an RGB of about 11,11,11 and look at it in the dark you can see little dark splotches, etc.
Galaxy s3, from a teen's point of view.

Teenagers take on the s3, ( on my 3rd week with the device) At&t 16 GB. I have used a Windows phone 7 device for a year (Samsung Focus), then an iPhone 4s for a year, and now trying my luck with an android phone (Galaxy s3). So far, it is a little bigger than i would have liked, but im adjusting to it. Whenever i hold an iphone, i feel like it is wayyyyy smaller than it actually is (4.8 in vs 3.5 in). So far im satisfied, but the size is my biggest complaint

Galaxy S3 Review

I got this phone when it was released. I was really excited to get this phone. With this device, i could feel the samsungs new revolutionary technology. Many many features were added. These features satisfied me.

Great replacement for the HTC One X if necessary
jdot104 has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
I was originally never going to purchase a Galaxy S III. I had an HTC One X for about a month before I decided to return it because of the lack of external storage options. The GS3 isn't an improvement in every category, but it's a very solid phone and is worthy of many accolades.

best phone ive ever had.
thedarkside has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
ive only had this phone a few days and i absolutely love it so far. the screen is perfect size for my huge hands and its just beautiful. pretty decent in direct sunlight. the speakers are pretty good. even the ear phones are good, not the best ive had, but the fit well in the ear and the sound is still clear. calls sound great. reception is great in my area. internet speeds are crazy good. im still trying to figure out the camera. this is also my first android phone and so far its great!!

Great phone, couldn't be more pleased
The_Original_Zon has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
Absolutely amazing phone! I love the multi-tasking. The video player app with the pop up picture is very cool. The camera for stills and video is amazing. The microphone is awesome when shooting video. The speaker provides great quality and volume for music. Battery life was surprisingly good. It lasted me a good 20 hours with medium to high data and screen usage. Swype text could use a tweak or two but still pretty good. It does get a little warm with heavy usage, but nothing too alarming. The only beef I have with the phone is S Voice. It's simply terrible. The voice recognition is horrible. I instead use Google Voice which is awesome so in the end it works out. I highly recommend this phone to everyone.

Still quite good...
ztbell21 has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
I LOVE THIS PHONE. The big screen, camera, build quality and feature set are excellent. It puts others to shame. Sounds might be a little cheesy and some users might have issues with AT&T's bloat ware on this otherwise fantastic phone. S Voice is also a bad alternative to Siri, Dragon or google now, but it works.

Pretty Good Pretty Good
ThePhoneCricket322 has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review
This phone is pretty good. Battery life sucks but you can get a extended battery life case so that was resolved. Reception was awesome but at some places it sucks. All in all pretty awesome. Crappy back cover too.
Great Phone.....I love it!!

I love this phone. Coming from the HTC Vivid, it's a major difference. SG III is way more powerful. No complaints. Camera quality, call quality, speaker, media and video is GREAT! Internet browsing is fast and easy to navigate. Just a great phone.
