I have this phone for 5 years but still its good as new . no problems encountered(maybe im just a techie and i know how to handle so it wouldnt have a problem) and still i took a good care with my S3 . seriously it doesnt have even a 1 scratch :D mine is i9305 LTE color titanium grey . when i always took it off wit the case it is still shiny as its looks like on 2012 :) battery is still good no replacement battery since 2012 . when standy mode drains 2% per 3 hours :) i hope this phone would last a lifetime . btw this is my first phone :D and Samsung Galaxy Note7FE/8 would be my last phone :D i will buy it even if its 600$ Note7 or 1000$ Note8
I am successfully using my Samsung Galaxy Slll for the last 4 years. But I am going to buy Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017) now.
Sad day. My S3 has died today. Looking for new phone right now, this has lasted well though. Cheers. :)
Its first smart phone world....
Its Good in battery and display with over all performance. Still alive with all updates in Software. Thank you Samsung
samhackeverything, 15 Jun 2017what is the avaiblity in europe?
tbh i dont think they make em anymore beacause it was released in 2012 and it is now 2017
still using it till now, often times got frustrated with the battery life, but looking back, its worth every penny, the display still looks good, not too far behind from the current mid -end phone.
Bought it for ~$550, and still -kinda- kickin' after 4 ,5 years, not a bad deal overall.
Worst phone ever, that I have used to.... All I can say is, worst worst worst...
ever and ever.... Forever.
One of the best phones if you ask me. I've bought it in 2013, so it's 4 years already and no problem at all, phone works as it should. Only one issue, in 2016 I've changed phone battery because old one died and that's it :)
I had this phone for over four years now, just recently I gave my phone to my father who needed a new phone. I just wanted to say that this is a very good phone for 2012/2013 but over the years with technology changing the Samsung Galaxy S3 was not able to catch up with the times. Ranging from system updates that were prevented to the limited amount of apps being downloaded onto the phone...... Overall I will give it a 10/10 for being able to last these four years. Even though I dropped it multiple times, storage usually becoming full because of updates and not the long lasting battery. In the end, i would like to recommend this phone to anyone who just needs it for basic necessities.
Best phone ever! bought it 4 years ago and its still going strong, you'll need a battery case tho because it kills it.
This is very amazing and fantastic phone! I suggest you that this is better than oppo expect camera
