I have had the phone for about a week now. I am moving on from an iphone 3gs which i have been using for about 3 years. so far i like most of the galaxy's features. It can do so many things it is kind of over whelming at first but very cool if you want to take the time to learn it. I really like the voice activated texting option and the external ram. the fact that you dont have to sync everything is great. that was one thing i couldnt stand about apple's iphone, you couldnt move stuff from phone to pc and vice versa very easily. you would have to plug in and it would sync and it took a while. this phone you just use your micro sd card just like a gig stick, very cool. oh camera rocks as well. only negative i can see so far is that it eats battery faster than 3gs did but still lasts all day. I used it from 8:30 am to 7pm before running it down to 1%. pretty much on it all day.
I am a nokia fan. and i was w8ing for nokia to bring a good phone to market.
But they are not. now i made a desetion.
Today i am gonn buy this S3. it has all that i needed.
so good bye nokia..
Hi guys ! I'm here originally for the reason to acknowledge and finding out some tech info about the s3 . but when I came in here whats known to be s3 forum it's all just bashing and crying about which handset and os is better then the other ! Tell the truth , there is no best handset or os ! Because if there is , then the other ones will go bankrupt ! Its that simple! I'm currently an iPhone 4s user , I also got an MacBook pro and iPad 2 ! But it doesn't mean osx is better then window ! It just means I enjoy using Mac interface ! Now I'm thinking of switching from iPhone to s3 , becuase I want to try something different then just icon interface ! Planning on haveing android on a handset and iOS on iPad ! So I get to mark around with both ! So please share more professional info on the product , rather then I got the best handset ! Thanks !

Can everyone stop the bashing? We're not in a contest. We're here to try and help other people out to the best of our experiences & tested knowledge. Please try to understand that not all people are geniuses. Android (ICS & higher) is really an OS for those that have the spare time to learn and carefully understand how to tweek it to suit their individual style of usage, and are suitable for those who are more tech-knowledgeable. IOS is for those who just want to be relaxed at using a reliable OS in their everyday routine, something they could readily use without the complications. Its really an individual's choice of what unit he likes. To be able to help them out in their questions would show how Human we all are.
I got S3 android. but the life of the Battery is too short. I can't use it for a day. how do you thing the problem to the life of the battery.
I close all applications to save the battery but it is not as such have long life, I have to charge it daily.
How can I use it?
radeon19, 08 Aug 2012I've been testing this phone for a week now since I only have 1 week replacement for the unit ... moreHi, I purchased the HTC one XL a couple of weeks ago and I'm facing trouble with its battery as well. Its just 1800 mah and I need to charge it twice a day.
I guess its more like a smartphone norm these days. Contrastingly, I'm thinking of getting this replaced with the S3 now :)

1) I have been on these Forums for a long time, and have noticed a disturbing change in the people they attract. When I had a i9000 I was on that Forum, and me and a guy named Ray were always helping other users out with their problems. Most of those we helped were grateful and thanked us for our help. Not so here, very few users seem to have the common decency to say thank you.
2) I have never came across so many 'My phone is better than your phone' idiots that are appearing here. Let's put it in perspective. It's a PHONE. It's something you stick against your ear to make a call, not the Holy Grail. You buy the phone that seems to suit your needs. I don't walk around sneering at other peoples choice of phone, it's the one they like. Can we stop the S3 bashing and get on with what IS important... Helping other S3 owners with their problems.

1) You really do need to lighten up a bit. I was joking - hence the expression LOL I put at the end of the post.
2) The remark about viruses on Android phones was childish and you should be ashamed of yourself. I have NEVER met anyone who has had a virus on his phone.
iSJ5, 14 Aug 2012samsung please kill the features "JAVA-MidP emulator" if you do that i buy samsung!Samsung will not do that for an iPhone fanboy!
hasan, 14 Aug 2012It's very good device but there play games and Internet works come to hits it's very said
Thanks for your reply Hasan, but i do not get what you mean.
Anyway, i bring my S3 to the service center today.
The operator agreed that my S3 front facing camera is faulty and will repair it for me but it will takes 3 to 5 days.
I thought ok, but since i do not have a spare phone with micro sim so i asked for one from the operator.
But the operator said all the spare phone are loaned out. No more spare phone for me. Then i ask them how are they gonna contact me if i do not have a spare phone? Am i suppose to go and buy/borrow from someone else? The operator said "there is nothing they can do"? What a great answer!
I was getting a little bit frustrated and ask for the manager or some one who can do something.
In the end, they agreed to offer me an "express service" which mean i can collect my phone in 2 hours time. I liked my S3, i think it is a good phone. To have one with faulty front camera is not too bad. But to get this kind of after sales service treatment is really dissappointing and sad. I hope Samsung can do more in this area.
samsung please kill the features "JAVA-MidP emulator" if you do that i buy samsung!
@ Freefaller, I did get a Nokia, a Lumia 900, and I don't see Nokia's being collectors items any time soon.. being the 3rd most sold phones in the world I see Motorola, LG, HTC, Blackberry, Alcatel, Huawei, and even Sony phones being collectors items before Nokia.. I'm quite happy with my virus-free phone thank you :-) and I'm sure that will give a lot of other people a peace of mind as well.. If I was to go for an Android phone and if Android wasn't prone to virus attacks I'd go for the Sony Xperia S, main reason is because Sony didn't try to copy Apple with their UI, and because the Xperia S has a better camera.
