i hv used this phone for more than five years. it is good though the on an off button ha broken twice. cannot connect to pc, always says usb malfunctioned. but i really like my phone, it is easy to use in any way and has good camera.
Using the S3 as external monitor for my Nikon D7200 with qDSLRdashboard app, much cheaper than spending $200 for a dedicated external monitor.
I use it as a music phone and it works perfectly to this day. I have a 64 GB micro SD card with loaded music. Under the settings I deactivated certain programs so that the RAM wasn't being used up wastefully. Additionally, I removed the lock screen for the device so I can instantly access my music without any senseless swiping. Doing the two aforementioned things greatly boosts the speed of the device. The bowser works fine If I want to access a YouTube video along with other sites. It is a solid phone to buy even in 2020. Technology really won't change until quantum computing comes to the market anyway.
- Solid built phone for longevity
- Expand the space with a micro SD card from amazon
- Amazing phone to use as a tool
- Avoid too many apps as the RAM is minimal

Micheal, 20 Jun 2020Is the phone a good deviceNot anymore, it's only good for calling, texting, and music listening. But for social media it's bad

I mean people still looking at this phone. I had this phone at its prime and it was amazing

I have been gifted this S3 from someone else in 2016. After a year, Wifi can't connect and I decided to replace a motherboard through buying an broken screen S3. Now, it is still working without any problem as backup phone with Resurrection Remix rom flashed.
im using this phone 2012 until 2015(crash and cannot on because root but still good condition) then use samsung a5 2016 until now (still good condition)and soon im want to buy samsung s10 lite (large battery, snapdragon 855,and large screen)but the bad is no stereo no earphone jack no water resistant. but i dont care. because this my budget to get that phone. if im rich maybe i will pick s 10+

this sheet-tier-very-short-battery-life-piece-of-plastic still lives after almost 6 f'n years of active use
I use it as a replacement for my note 5,still good phone though no software updates
After 8 years I still use this phone.
Only my on-off key on the right side cracked (plastic). So I turn it on and off with sort of wire.
It always had shorter battery life, updates stopped in a year or two.
It heated during games. A lot of work with Android: CM Security App (Boost, Clean, Check).
It works really fine, nice display, no scratches, only that on-off key broke.
Since July 2012 I use it. Mostly for WhatsApp, E-mail, Internet. I don't have option to play newest games, like new season of Nba Live. Maybe I will get iPhone, or Samsung again. I am in fear of problems of Exynos. SGS3 also has it. Battery goes really fast. I see that it is the same with S20, S20+, S20 Ultra...
