My S3 came with JB 4.1.2 and the battery life is actually flawless. Been using for almost 2 years.
The device is mega fast and snappy. It does lag occasionally when handling a lot of operations, but what can you expect from a 1 gb ram phone released in 2012?
The screen has splendid pixel density, and is very beautiful to look at. Flawless sound. I love my S3 :D
Yes, I do wish Samsung released a newer android version for the S3. Those custom ROMs with lollipop, etc just hamper battery life and are all unstable. Other than that, I really do not understand the opinions here. Battery life on S3 with stock 4.1.2 is superb and lasts even longer than the 2600mAh+ phones, even the iphone 5s, which my friends bring to college.
The sound in my s3 stopped working..no sound from back speaker,front speaker or earphone port..and also the mouth piece isn't working..I only use bluetooth headset which is very bothersome to make call with..and this problem actually started when I first connected the bluetooth device to it..what can I do about this issue?

I heard there was a release of the S3 which included deffective batteries. Maybe you came across one of those batteries. But before anything, try charging your phone with a spare charger that you have (Samsung preferably). If it doesn't solve the problem, then go for a new battery
my samsung galaxy sIII is a rubbish phone. i have charged it for at least more than 16 hours from yesterday till today but it has only been charged from 14% to 26%. plz give me a solution to my problem. i've just purchased this phone in the last week.
actually loved the phone. was great to use and was actually my first smartphone. So...
- Battery life becomes really weak after the first 6 months, and needs to be charged A LOT
- Becomes very slow and patchy after the first year. Apps would take like 20 mins to load
- lock screen wouldn't work every now and then
- good performance by the phone would come in bursts, and return to its former rubbish self
- Home screen and Android launcher were both awful, patchy and slow
- Camera would look like a 2MP camera after the first few months, and front camera would be worse than normal
- Clearing the RAM and wiping the phone were the only ways to speed up the phone to a noticeable standard
- The glass screen wouldn't break, but everything around it would
- The charger port would accept the charger, but wouldn't actually charge up if it had been treated, even slightly badly.
Its an okay phone, after a year it started to become really slow with even the most simple tasks and it heats up fast. Now, after two years I have to charge the battery twice a day (it warped) and it won't load pictures properly anymore. Sometimes it wont light up the screen when I use any buttons, so I have to take out the battery and restart in order to simply unlock my screen.
Really, dont buy it if you're looking for a phone to last more than a year.
how can I down load pictures from my ph to computer, and my address book to my computer.
