Poor Battery

The phone seems to work well but the battery is poor. I'm a low user and the standby time is less than 50 hours at best where as the specs say 250 hours. I've talked to Samsung support twice, turned all apps off, reset to factory specs and still no change. Buy only if you plan to charge the battery everyday.

battery is no good

easy to use. Camera was great.. Battery prongs broke inside the phone . just after 1yr causing the battery not to charge. No coverage after a year so the phone was no good.

I love it

I love this phone, out of all the phones I have had over the years. this is my most favorite. I have it for a couple of months now. Works great, decent size, fairly large the only thing is that the front screen froze on me twice, resulting in me rebooting it. Other then that no problems really

Doesn't last even a year

I love my galaxy S3! The camera is fantastic, easy to set up, great screen, overall the best Phone I've ever used. BUT.... Battery life is short, phone turns itself off when using. won't take a charge. 1st one lasted 9 months and then had to have replaced ( on warranty) but now this one is doing same thing after 7 months. No longer covered by warranty. I feel that the price we pay for these smartphones they should last longer. And I have heard quiet A few people having the same problem. I love the features but life span of phone needs to approve.

Luv it!

I had an 8 gig Moto G with no expansion for memory, no removable battery and it didn't come with the wall adapter. I maxed it out in a year. Bought this phone recently and have 16 gig / expandable to 64, removable battery, wall plug and earphones. This is more or less the same price as the Moto G ($150 last year and this one is $168 this year) but the specs are so much better. I was amazed at the features included in this (what others would consider) cheap phone. The only drawbacks is the home button (which I'm told is a Samsung thing)--I'm used to just tapping to get to the home screen and the volume button being on the right side. I always thought that was a better place for it but I find I'm always hitting it by mistake when trying to take pictures. Eventually I'll get used to it.

Great Value

Great value! 8 megapixel camera, you can open the phone and replace the battery yourself. Comes in 16/32/64 GB internal storage, 1 GB RAM. This phone allows you to insert a microSD card and expand the storage memory up to 64 GB! It comes with earphones, a USB to microUSB charging cable and wall plug. Android's app store, Google Play, is web browser based, unlike Apple's iTunes, so you can go to any computer around the world and install apps onto your Galaxy S3 without even plugging the phone into the computer since it's internet driven. And the phone has NFC capabilities and monitors eye movements for some basic phone functions. This phone has a beautiful Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen Corning Gorilla Glass 2 at 4.8 inches. Android OS, v4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich), 4.3 (Jelly Bean), planned upgrade to v4.4.2 (KitKat). The phone runs on a Dual Core (Quad-core in Europe) 1.4 GHz Cortex-A9 processor. And, unlike iOS 7, runs Flash! Also has voice commands by S-Voice, predictive texting, Smart Stay eye tracking, and a very decent battery life. I highly recommend this phone.
