Rated 5 out of 5 Love me the features and performance not so much the TouchWiz First things first, I purchased this phone coming off of a Nexus S running stock Jelly Bean. With that said I just want to say that I really really miss stock Jelly Bean and wish that this phone was running stock Jelly Bean. This phone, the Galaxy S III running that would make it the best phone of the decade without a doubt in my mind. HOWEVER, I just say that I really love this phone and found it to surpass my expectations as far as performance, display quality, usability, and camera ability. This phone kicks so much butt and can really last all day long, meaning that the battery on this phone is outstanding. Many critics complain about the materials that this phone is made of and I agree that it being made of plastic might be a concern to folks. I was worried about that at first but when you hold it in your hand you feel that it is sturdy and feels solid, however I worry (like anyone else) about dropping it and having it break. Love the LED notification that is subtle but extremely useful. Going deeper, my favorite feature on the GS3 is the camera. The quality and size of photos that the 8mp camera that the phone comes with are stunning and vibrant. Tons of features and being able to easily get to those features makes it a pleasure to use. Easily the best phone that I have ever used and cannot be more excited for the continuing evolution of Android. October 15, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cutting edge features for a decent price. The reason I purchased The Samsung Galaxy SIII due to the great reviews. I heard the phone was amazingly fast and ran ICS extremely smooth. I also heard the camera lifted the bar high for future cell phone cameras for quality and features. Now that I have spent a few weeks with the device, I would say the the reviews did not disappoint. ICS is fantastic on the phone. Transitions are smooth, launches are quick, and the touch screen response is fantastic. It is almost so sensitive that it takes some getting used to if you are coming from resistive-touch screens like I did. I first kept accidentally launching apps because i would touch the screen ever so lightly not thinking it would sense it but it does. The screen is just brilliant. Colors are amazing and the quality is crisp and clear. The 720x1280 resolution can show details so small that icons and pictures look great no matter what size. The text in a website are easy to read even when zoomed out to a smaller text. Battery life is decent but as with most/all smart phones, if you are using it heavily through the day then expect to need to charge it by days end. It has yet to run out on me even when I had it on vacation taking pictures, surfing the net and playing games but I am efficient with the power consumption. I turn off data/wifi when I know I don't need constant updates, I run wifi wherever possible, and after I hit about the 30% mark I set the phone to power save mode. My only complaint regarding the device would be the back battery cover. It is an extremely thin plastic that feels fragile. Especially the way it snaps on and off. I worry that I will break the cover if I take if off too often. But, with the great battery life and the right case, this may be a moot point. October 12, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Smartphone The Samsung Galaxy SIII has replaced my computer/laptop for many work activities. I check all my email accounts easily and quickly when I get notification alerts. My calendar works seamlessly and I can even edit documents I have saved in the cloud. It's my office on the go. November 30, 2014
