Rated 3 out of 5 This product has both great and not so great features. I switched from an iPhone 4s to a Galaxy 3. I love the screen size and clarity of the Galaxy but I'm not a fan of a few things in particular. The camera and edit options (the red eye doesn't even work and I NEED it with mine & my daughters blue (red) eyes). The iPhone camera and edit options are amazing. I use my camera daily so it's important. Also sometimes when I try to connect to the internet, I'll get an error message saying that it couldn't find a secure connection but I never had that problem with my iphone. Internet is important in my every day life/activities. The battery life of the Galaxy is a lot less compared to the iPhone also. I'm constantly charging my Galaxy, it'll say 99% as soon as you remove it from the charger. I'm not impressed and I want to switch back soon. But for anyone who wasn't spoiled by the iPhone, they would love it. Other than those flaws, it's a great phone. March 20, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Would be twice the phone if it wasn't for the bloatware There are entirely too many uninstallable apps competing for resources. I believe battery life and performance would be much improved if there weren't so many apps forced on you by Sprint. March 17, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by You can do better This is a good starter phone for someone who is moving to Android but doesn't use a lot of smartphone features. If you like to use a lot of apps and are on your phone all day, battery and processing performance will be very poor. When it's new like a few months it's fine, but I had to get a new extended batter after a few months due to battery draining after 2 or 3 hours after full charge. It freezes often and regularly reboots itself. Also not good with new sprint network. It drops wi-fi and other service often. March 12, 2015

The good

The Samsung Galaxy S III (S3) comes fully loaded with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, 4G LTE capability, a zippy dual-core processor, and a strong 8-megapixel camera. S Beam is an excellent software enhancement, and the handset's price is right.

The bad

The Galaxy S3's screen is too dim, and Samsung's Siri competitor, S Voice, disappointed. Until Sprint's LTE launch, data speeds drag on the carrier's 3G network.

The bottom line
Pumped with high-performing hardware and creative software features, the Samsung Galaxy S3 is an excellent, top-end phone that's neck and neck with the HTC One X. Unfortunately, it only runs on Sprint's 3G network for now.
