I had a chance to use this. It was amazing until the update started and battery was soon not sufficient for andriod 5. But the phone, features were excellent. I still miss it. Use this as wifi hot spot at home sometime, works fine for me. Its was not that bad, but I guess andriod update made this phone obsolete as it drains too much power.
Its been 3yrs I was using dis phone t was goin well soon got problem lyk camera stopped working nd alarm problems hence I updated to 4.3 now battery s draining lyk hell wen m using internet.der s no bulging on battery ..can anyone suggest wat I shld do nw?

No time to test GSM radio, but works well over WiFi. OpenGapps mini set installed and 250 MB ram free ...
Looks good so far, my old S3 got second life
My experience with Samsung s3 is negative.
It has big big problems with battery time.
The original battery blew up .
So I bought a new one. (Samsung original).
It does not hold up.
Even as standby after less then 8 hours with "no internet" it is at 5 %battry.
So for me,
No Samsung any more.

This is rabbish.i will never again buy samsung phones after experience with S3.
It is so soo slow that sometimes it is impossible make normal call.Battery bad everything is bad.
after few months this mobile became dissappointment, battery was changed like 5 times, 1 GB RAM is horrible. This mobile is made to be good one month.
Hello guys.my bro gave me S3 a few days back every thing works except simcard.wat would b the problem???
My S3 kept crashing with 6.01 Marshmallow but runs flawlessly on 7.12 Nougat. Kept in a fold over case all its life, brand new Anker battery and it's still like a brand new phone, you can keep your i-Phone 8 and S8, this puppy is still a great phone.

How had you updated?
IMOS, 10 Jul 2017Can the OS be upgraded to 6.0 or 7?Yes, But Only Can Do It When You Root Your Device.
