Bad: software - not compatable. Battery life non existent.
Comment: Can't wait for contract to run out so I can have an iphone. The problem is the android software, what ever I download to the phone from my laptop or desk top doesn't work on the phone. I have downloaded all types of software to both my phone and computers that say they will allow me to watch video's or listen to music that I have downloaded from my computers and nothing works. I have worked with computers for years and have built them so it's not that I don't know what I am doing. And it's not just music and video software thats not compatable with the android system.
And the battery life is useless, if the features the phone has are used the battery doesn't last a day.
Would I buy another android phone - no never
Good: Screen, size, software options
Bad: Laggy Software, battery life(7 hours of minimal usage), LAGGG!!
Comment: The phone overall is a very big step forward from the galaxy s2 but the lag is just dreadful on the Original samsung software. The notifications are slow to respond, switching from home screen to app drawer is usually slow and switching between tabs is really frustrating. Of course it isn't always so, but almost most of the time.
I have rooted my s3 and installed a custom rom that looks and feels more like stock android. The changes in responsiveness and overall smoothness has changed significantly for the good! I suggest everyone to try a custom rom, it will make your day, everyday you use the phone!
Comment: Good device and suitable for me
Good: It is very good looking device and it has a fast processor
Comment: Awesome device

Good: sophisticated design
Bad: battery does not last a day...
Comment: Sophisticated design with big screen and thin body. Satisfied with most of the aspects, but but battery does not last a day... During the trip I always need to carry other camera or turn off the phone otherwise battery will be run out. ( even I don't spend too much time watching video or playing games )
Camera works quick and fine, but not the best to take the picture in the dark place.
Good: big screen! Latest version of Android!
Comment: I have had lots of experience with this phone and it is very good!
Comment: Have s 2 which is fantastic would like to try s3
