You will get a new (latest) device.
S3 is old device now.
With Lumia you will get LTE and batter battery life, a fresh windows os experience and will be upgraded to win 10.
Settings to speed up device and get maximum performance ( RAM & Battery ) for galaxy S3 :
1- in developer options scroll down to Drowing : select animation is off for ( windows animation scale - transion animation scale - animator duration scale ) .
2- in developer options scroll down to Apps : limit background processes and select 4 processes at most . ***( always repeat this selection after turn on or restart phone ) .
3- in application manager ( turn off ) (disable) bloatware apps and some of services for ( google & samsung ) Because it always running in the background and consuming a lot of battery life and Ram .
4- Not install many apps that consuming battery and Ram like social netwok apps and games ... Only install what you really need .
5- in display Reduce brightness level less than half . ( don't use auto brightness )
6- turn off ( NFC - S Beam - Nearby devices - Screen Mirroring - Motion - Smart Screen - Voice control - Page buddy - Multi windows - Daydeam ) .

9- reduce number of pages on home screen ( maximum 3 pages ) .
10- always restart your phone to refresh ram and system .
11- use home button to close apps that running in the background.
12- use power saving mode to reduce battery consumption ( limit cpu speed ).
13- if you faced any problem in your phone use recovery mode , select wipe cash partition then reboot it again .
14- If your battery has become old. it's better to buy a new one ( original ).
15- always use the original charger and battery for S3 and don't ever use ( non- original ).
16- Use ( Greenify application ) to close apps that running in the background it's very useful.
For Extremist battery saving mode :

Guys, calm down. Whoever is not satisfied by the performance of their GS3. Please update your phone to lollypop 5.1.1 using this ROM:
Believe me, this ROM is supersmooth, stable(can be used as daily driver) and battery backup is also good. I am getting free RAM of approx. 277MB almost everytime. I am a hardcore user and i normally dont suggest people. But this ROM is too good and so i wanted u guys also to feel it.
CONDITIONS APPLIED: Do a clean flash. Wipe cache, Dalvic cache and do a factory reset and then install this ROM. Else you are bound to face problems and Bugs. Don't complain if u ignore this point.
Hope this helps.
Stay happy :)
Very very BAD. Bluetooth connection do Philips headphones does not work while 5 year old Sony phone works with no problem
Some times the phone opens very slow. Contacts, albums, messages etc. Can I increase the internal RAM?
virgin, 17 May 2015How come it says 50gb of dropbox storage when actually its only 5gb in mine The free Dropbox account can be upgraded up to 50GB for free. There are some things you have to do to bump it up: refer a friend - get more storage, install on more than one device - get more storage. Etc etc. It doesn't start at 50 but I got mine to 50 without much hassle.

roxy, 11 May 2015Guys plz share ur experience... I want to buy a mobile set with in lumia 735 & galaxy s3..... moreThe Galaxy SIII is a great phone, lots of cool features. I have no experience with the nokia phone however, so ill tell you about the SIII. If you are into gaming, this phone might not be for you. You can only play games for like 3-4 hours, but performance is really good. The display is Super AMOLED, which gives the best results colour and contrast. It is more customizable than Windows phones (Nokia).
This android device has a lot more applications for whatever your needs.
Please dont hesitate to ask any questions you have regarding the SIII.
Undoubtedly it is a very good phone in competitive to recent Grand duos 2 with price and specs. If anybody wants a portable phone and not a humongous screen of course. My S3 supports 4.4.4 beanstalk and runs absolutely smooth and faster than the Jelly bean version but requires root permission.
Guys, there is a new phone called galaxy core prime that have similar spec to this phone. It have 4.8inch super amoled display. It have better battery, 2200mah. Thinner at 8mm thickness. 8mp rear camera and 5mp front cam. It also have LTE version. But, i never seen it at all in any store. It was released last october. Is it discontinued? Its not even in gsmarena list. Though there is a lot of picture of it circulating in internet.
roxy, 11 May 2015Becoz price factor... s3 is unofficially updatable also.. But lumia 735 makes confusion to me.... moreYa unofficial update available like 4.4.4 kitkat S3 LTE ported (Stable)or cyanogenmod lollipop (Testing) but old hardware and average battery life. Go for new smart phone.
Anonymous, 11 May 2015Why u want to buy old S3? Which is more than 3 year old.Becoz price factor... s3 is unofficially updatable also.. But lumia 735 makes confusion to me...thax for feedback..
roxy, 11 May 2015Guys plz share ur experience... I want to buy a mobile set with in lumia 735 & galaxy s3..... moreI think you will be more than confused if your buy a windows phone. Windows 10 might make it better... Samsung not the flashest but as long as you get a good one it will be fine and easier
