A great phone but not for 2016, I think S3 is not worth it anymore, there are tons of samsung smartphones out there at the same price with better perfomance and battery! I had a quite great experience with this phone at the past 2 years using, not worth to buy now, this phone was good at the period of 2012-2016 now it gets boring because of the low specs and old Android OS
I received a Samsung Galaxy III in June 2016 to replace an ACE3 which stopped working - today I purchased a Samsung Galaxy J1 mini as I had to go back to the shop for the second fix-up - The S3 lasted 2 months then 3 months and when I asked for advice I was told it would be better to just buy a new phone as this one wasn't going to get any better. Has anybody else had this problem - the battery won't charge, even enough to turn on to retrieve photos.
Aysha, 15 Dec 2016My samsung s3 keeps turning off and on suddenly. Is it because of the software or the hardware?Its because the power button gets pressed. If you have the case on the phone thats what probably causing it, I had the same problem. Remove the cover it should work fine after that.

My phone works great however recently when communicating by texting the texts show up in the wrong order. my texts appear in sequential order as I sent them but the response shows up before mine in sequential order they are sent. This makes it really tough to follow a conversation when you have to scroll back and forth and try to figure our which text follows correctly. Example of how it is shown would be my texts letters and their responses are numbers: 1234abcd How can I fix this problem?

You can verify if your charger is working properly installing the "Ampere" app (download it on Google Play)
This app can show if the battery life is good, and show the charging amperage in miliampere.
For Samsung Galaxy S3 this number is about 1000 mA.
