Hey guys, this hardware can run newer OS without big problems, just try Cyanogen roms. My S3 is running Android 5.1.1, but there is also a 6.0 version.
Galaxy S3 is old, but an amazing machine.
Shishi, 07 Jun 2016The OS was never updated since I bought it in 2012. too badSad but true. Maybe the hardware itself cant handle to run newer OS.
My s-3 is 3 years old now. It's been in a Otto box case and today it is still like new and yes, it's been dropped and used hard every day. I've had to do a hard reset when the phone gets glichy a few times, then restore apps and phone is like new again. I think this is the best of the bunch of old phones. I'm in Panama and the Samsung store still offers the s-3 slim for only $150.32. What a buy! I paid $550 new! Oh, I'm still on the original battery too. The only reason for me to change to a new s-7 would be the display, so I can see it in bright sunlight, and a better camera.
mertandroidpoweruser, 31 Mar 2016phone is good but the charging port is having problem and screen broke easilyWhat you mean is you dropped it, probably on concrete, not the phone's fault , is it?
I used to LOVE Apple Iphones. But im very clumsy and had to replace the glass/digitizer on my iphone 4s 4 times in 2 years. I got annoyed and purchased a Samsung 3 2 years ago and couldn't be happier. It can do so many more things than iphones can. I can download my tv shows and movies right onto the phone instead of downloading onto the computer then fooling around with ITunes to get it onto the phone, Plus I drop my phone everyday and I have no case and it doesn't break. This is an amazing phone and I will never ever waste money on iphones

konrad, 30 May 2016hello my galaxy s3 was diagnosed with short circuit and it wouldnt come on. please how can i ... moreIf it was due to water damage, you're better off just buying a new phone.
If it was just the battery (aka chiparia damage), get a new one.
Good luck! :)
Worst phone I have ever owned, this is my second IIIS in two years. It has take to over heating, turning itself off, and starting programs on its own. With all this, it now will not receive calls, sends them directly to voice mail. I can receive texts and voice mail, go figure. The only good thing, I bought the extended warranty, and am now going to another brand and service provider. Boost has very long delays on receiving texts and voice mails. some times from several hours to all day.
