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 !!!

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! :(

I'm still married to this phone. 5 years of happiness and still going strong. custom ROMs amazing. this is the best phone of all time. I agree with some reviews here Samsung need to upgrade it to S3+ or something with better camera & 3gb ram & bigger display maybe 5.5" I'll definitely buy it.
My second smartphone :-)
I exchanged my Galaxy S2 for it after the S2 was lagging like crazy and not even a reset helped

Turn off phone and then hold the Volume UP+Power+Home button for 20-30 seconds and it should boot where you can delete cache and User Data and get functionality back.
