Rated 4.2 out of 5†by 8998 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5†by eats sd cards, freezes often and MHL doesnt work at all I have gone thru 7 micro SD cards, from various manufacturers, but since it corrupted the factory Samsung SD card, no other card Samsung, SanDisk or otherwise has lasted more than a couple weeks before randomly indicating Mounted/Unmounted and not being able to access the card on any device or reader. The factory Samsung MHL adapter has never worked with my phone either, although it works with my fiancťe's S3, and we have the same firmware version and software with no modifications to the OS or hardware. My phone locks up all the time, freezes, power cycles, and has generally inconsistent performance, occasionally getting very warm to the touch (the phone itself, not the battery). I'm trying a different brand of phone on my next upgrade! May 24, 2016

Rated 3 out of 5†by Started out great This phone started out great. The older the phone gets the poorer the product performs.....It continually locks up now and must pull the battery out in order to "release" it. The battery drains very quickly now.....and it is just plain slow!!!! March 28, 2016

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.
