S3 Neo Not Bad

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

Missing Upgrade to a newer Firmware, Killed at 4.3 (Jelly Bean)!
A lot of apps can not be installed because of the older version Android that could not be upgraded!
Some heating issues started to be encountered especially when connecting to wi - fi !

About this phone

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

So I had this phone for about a half of the year or 6 months.Let's start with build quality.The build quality is really good except the back cover feels cheap and if you press it sometimes you hear some crack noises.Call quality is also good but if there is noisy environment around, you might not hear the person you are talking with really good.Internet is good but I would like to see 4G.The speaker is not amazing.The quality is not that bad but it's just not loud enough so I still had to buy bluetooth speaker.Camera is great for 8 megapixel shooter.The quality is great but it lacks detail.It's typical Samsung UI.It's great but when you use it for longer time it's starts to get boring.I haven't problems with the speed because with the 1,5 gb of ram seems to work fine.For everyday usage it's better then fine.You can easily do simple multitasking,reading news or gaming.The text input is great.I had no problems with it.It's easy to type fast.Display for the price is really good.HD with good pixel density.But the one problems is that outside or in the bright sunlight it's not really greatly visible.The battery is averege.With heavy using the battery will run out fast.With my using I am getting about 1 day and sometimes less.One sad thing is this phone is not getting Android 5.0 because it was canceled for this phone.And the last thing I wanted to mention that this phone heats often and thats annoying and then it slows down a little bit.

Better than normal S3

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

Is better than normal S3 in almost all aspects, for example in turning on speed. Also the interface in better looking. You can also update it to Lollipop in xda, i try the rom in there but is not so stable. The only thing that you should know is the low regular quality in sunlight exposure

This Phone is Great!!!

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

The phone is great. The price is cheap but the specification is the same as the other samsung phone which cost higher. The internet connection is good. The only problem I encounter was the battery. Also I don't like the sound of the speaker.
