Bought this version 3 yesterday afternoon and am returning it today to the store of purchase here in Toronto Canada. The phone is cheap feeling, the OS is laggy along with wi-fi issues. If you're thinking of grabbing this one or the upcoming iPhone 5, trust me, wait for the iPhone 5. The build on the S3 is just not there for a $765.00 smartphone, it litterally feels like a toy. I'm sure if you drop this phone, it's game over. I test alot of phones, (it's a wierd addiction I have) and I give every smartphone a go to see if it's worthy. This smartphone is definatley one you want to move on past. If you're spending over $700.00 on a smartphone, you should get something that feels like it's a luxury handset, not some cheap plastic wannabe with a so so OS.
My S3 is not charging anymore..crashing and display flicking...Did a hard reset deleting all my old data the same problem...brought it to the shop back!

In Uk 67% ppl are using 4S including myself and everybody got the same complain. 4S is OK, but too much problem and high price as well. S3 is cheap and better quality. I know that, Cuz I'm using both of them.

Anonymous, 22 Jun 2012Poor americans,they have to get S3s with crappy snapdragonsDual core 1.5 snapdragon fast but not faster than exynos but still fast. Snapdragon can handle everything.
Damn. I was about 3 years with iphone, but damn today i got this is and its pure time mashine. Love it
a 1.5ghz dualcore krait is equal or to a 2.1ghz dual core exynos...and fyi, you don’t need too much extra cores for a phone, it’s useless...all you need is a faster processing frequency, so a dual core cpu is more than enough...well you can check the benchmarks, and you will see that the dual core krait beats the quadcore exynos4212 any day...for battery matters, krait processors are battery savers so the 2100maH charge capacity will be enough to last more than a day or two, unlike the exynos version that barely lasts a day for excessive usage....temperature problems were also minimized in krait processors....and for the gpu matters, adreno225 is just equal to mali-400mp...
Preet, 17 Jun 2012Not a good phone it has problems in communications voice is not getting through clearly m usin... moreyes, i do face the same problem with samsung s3, the day i am using, within 2 days i have send it for replacement and i received new one, and still it has problem, already given the complaint to their middle east call centre and and local dealer in UAE,
So for the newbies around here, i’ll just show you why this gs3 version beats the original version(i9300)...well, the truth is, this version of gs3 has no disadvantages against the gs3(i9300)...
does tasks faster, battery lasts longer, cooler temps = better galaxy s3
Preet, 17 Jun 2012Not a good phone it has problems in communications voice is not getting through clearly m usin... moreThat's funny because I'm rather sure this phone hasn't launched yet. You must be looking for the GSM version.
Not a good phone it has problems in communications voice is not getting through clearly m using it from da day it has launched
Daquest, 12 Jun 2012Isn't this the same design as the others? Then why it got a 7 while the others 8.1?It's only the fanboys. Customers of different carriers come here and vote down the Verizon version of the device, especially those who are limited to purchasing the I9300 version with only 1GB of RAM. It's not a big deal. On GSM Arena, rating means nothing. Their system is flawed.
So, yes, minus being thinner, the Verizon design is near identical to the device with a rating of 8.1.
