This phone is just a beast
use for 5 years, very good phone, in this moment whit android 7.1 custom rom.
It's simply immortal! Using it for 4 years now, with a CM rom. Last year changed the battery because the last one was failing. Finally decided to upgrade, going for the S7.

kaitsevaim, 30 Dec 2016is there anything similar that would support 4G?Lenovo K3 Note
flowrust, 25 Dec 2016No, it support 3GMy SIII starts out with 4GLTE as part of the start up screens. I have a Sprint phone, maybe that makes a difference...
I've bought this phone a few days ago as my second phone and Odin can't recognize it. I've installed all drivers, Kies, tried some programs as Android Toolkit. With it Odin recognize but operation failed. I can't put custom rom. I don't understand. I want to put it because it's faster and maybe on that way I can fix my problem with internal memory. It says I have 8 GB of free internal space but when I want to install something now I can't, memory full.
does it make calls? sure does...can ya send texts? yep...can ya google and run youtube? sure can...so all in all shes a good unit..
Life's Companion indeed, 4years going 5
-It has never went for repair, hardware & software still intact....(Currently running a custom rom)
-Still using the same battery it came with from the box.
-Running android Nougat 7.1.1_r6 RR 5.8.0 (17 Dec-16)
-On gaming (Asphalt 8, GTA SA, Stranger Oddworld, NFS MW, Morden Combat 4 + 5, PPSSPP etc) it doesn't have any lags while playing any of these & more.
-Multitasking (+ / - Split screen) on social networks is just flawless.
-Editing on Photo Director, Photoshop Touch, VideoShow is a walk in the part.
-Converting/Compressing videos to other formats & output rendering/buffering is a breeze.
-Creating 1hour+ live record mixes on Cross Dj goes perfect & there's no cuts, glitches when previewing the mixes.
-Good Battery life
23:17 battery was 100% (Removed charger, turned off data, switched to 2G & slept)
9:06am = 97% remaining when I picked it up the next day.
-Perfect sound (due to Boeffla Kernel sound + V4Arise + Dolby Atmos Port)
Lastly the device's durability comes in as a bonus.
