Maybe one of the best Samsung phones ever, it has gotten old really good, something that just a few devices can to presume.
I am using this mobile phone since 4th July 2012. It works perfectly, not a single scratch. The only thing that happened is that my fingerprints changed the colour of that silver part on sides. It turned mostly black, colour of coal, because when I play, my fingers keep the phone on the side. I don't see any problems with my CPU, memory, I play few games constantly. Display colours are nice. My phone is white, not like this one in the picture. I can't complain. The problem is battery consumption and long time of battery charge, but who can have the battery for 6 years and expect the greatness and long lasting performance. :) When it stops working, I will probably buy iPhone XR, XS or some other newer, because I doubt that my Galaxy S3 will stop with nice performance. Still emotionally attached. :) Asus Rog seems also nice, iPhone and Samsung, maybe LG.
AgheelElectro, 17 Dec 2018can i play PUBG on this phone ? The Minimum Requirement Is 1.5 GB For PUBG.
If your S3 is slow or unusable, you can refresh it with a new operating system and give it life again - for instance Lineage OS.
I have been using this phone from 2013 to 2017, then the OS began to crash and i sold it for 75 euro... The price that i paid for new was 315 euro...
I have been using this phone since 2013. For me, it's one of the best phones Samsung has ever manufactured.
Been using it since 2012. The battery life is okay it can last a day or two while using the phone. I had heat issues with it although nothing serious.
The latest Android released for it is 4.3 and some of the apps on the Play Store don't support it any longer.
The systems have started to slow down for the past few years so I decided to install a custom ROM and it's like new.
I bought this phone in 2012 and am using it ever since. And it held through the years remarkably well.. Sadly, dropped it on the asphalt and cracked the bottom of the screen. I wish it had 1,5 gigs of ram insead of 1, because it is starting to get slow.
In 1985, 3999$, for a crapy phone
In 2012, 799$, for a galaxy S3
in 2018, 1000$ for iPhone X
don't forget that S3 was one of the best phone in 2012 !!!

For that price you can buy s8 or even s9. Iphone 8 costs that much. And yes s3 is not very good now becouse it came 6 years ago but it still decent my friend uses it and it can still run alot of apps. When it came out it was good i remember when i wanted this phone so badly but bought LG G FLEX 2. You just got scamed if you bought it for 800$.

What are you saying?
Brought this phone because my friend said Galaxy's are good! paid over $800 and its slow small screen and it sucks. My dad brought the iPhone 8 and the screens way better and bigger its cheaper and 20x faster, never buying a Samsung ever again. Saved up for nearly a year for my first phone as well! :(
daughter upgraded got her s3...had it about 5 years, bit slow sometimes has great pics happy with it...use it till it dies...
