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

Adam, 16 Apr 2017Could you please share how you managed to root with S7 Rom ?https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=kM4UiJHj9Us
If you already rooted a Samsung device you don't need to watch the video but you have the CF auto root in the description. Even though my s3 is broken now it worked for me so good luck:)
Jawwad Rizwan, 02 Apr 2017Very Awesome Mobile Phone ... I love it very MuchSays you and Donald Trump.
I have this phone and hated it on its stock firmware at 4.3 JellyBean. I rooted and flashed an S7edge rom which made it a lot faster and its battery life better.
jovan3126, 06 Mar 2017how did you update this phone? link pls... thank you in advanceGo to XDA-Developers and learn how to root the S3 (only way you can update this device now). Install TWRP recovery and a custom rom, I have LineageOS 7.1.1 Nougat (they still manage/update this rom weekly) on my S3 and it works great! OctOS rom is good too and also Nougat 7.1.1, both roms have no bloatware, have tweaks/customization's, improves battery and makes phone smoother and faster.
i've had this phone for 2 years now i still really love it. The battery is kinda bad but it Works fine.
it would be nice if there was an update for android tho.
