After using the device for 2 weeks, and receive the latest firmware update:
I have to say its battery life almost on par with samsung galaxy tab 7.7 (honycomb).
I used to hate touchwiz on my tab because its slow and buggy.. however in this device its very very smooth and responsive.
For once i do not need to root/modify as the phone is already good out of the box.
It has a notification light on the top left corner that blinks when u have new notification or low batt. (like blackberry)
The problem i have is.. the device is kinda big/slim and too light.. thus hard to grip.. most of the time require 2 hands and have a feeling its gonna fly off. A good casing to improve grip is a must for me.
The middle button is stiff, much like iphone 4's, but because of iphone 4's size and weight, its easy to press on iphone, luckily do not need to press it as much as iphone's.. i rely on the back/menu buttons more.
Highly worth buying if you are looking for a high end android phone.

mr e71, 15 Jul 2012another battery problem. suppose u have charge 100 % phone. Phone is still continuing charging... moreIf you don't find the Samsung Galaxy S III a good phone then sell it! No one cares what you think especially when you are trying to compare an advance OS with a non innovative OS.
I found that my SGS3 is definitely faster than my HTC One X when I download Google Map. The search is faster, and the Street View is more clear. The Pac-Man moves more accurate too. I don't care pen-tile or whatever, for me, the GS3 Super Amoled screen is just nicer to look at!
its so silly that people who comment on this phone especially -ve comments dont even think twice about what they are posting, "any phone is as good as its user", if you are smart enough to use a smart phone then you will face fewer problems, if you are dumb then your smartphone will obviously turn not to be dumber than you.
before posting the comments about this phone or any smartphone for that matter, pls learn about the phone's hardware and software it has, how the whole thing works in a standard manner, for eg. phone memory, RAM, CPU power and most importantly HOW ANDROID WORKS AS AN OPERATING SYSTEM FOR A SMARTPHONE, without all the above, you guys are just jumping into conclusions or prejudging it because you dont know how to use it or you dont know about a thing that you bought!!
my opinion on SGS3 - the phone itself is fine, no problems at all....
if you have issues, post it as a question so that someone who has better understaning of the phone can answer instead of ruling the phone as bad piece of gadget.
SGS3 is a good phone if the user of it is also good...same concept goes along the lines "made for humans, inspired by nature" I have two more words for you guys - Think & Understand...
Could you please any one advise me what to buy galaxy note or galaxy s3
After one month only from purchased new S3 mobile my cup drop down in the mobile screen, 2cm only this is the distance needed to break the amazing screen!!!i am really surprised, it very bad quality. the problem that i open case with samsung but they easy reply we can't do anything >>>>>>
another battery problem. suppose u have charge 100 % phone. Phone is still continuing charging connect to charger and at the same time u are using internet or playing game, battery is reducing, Nokia is still the best in the battery
In android games are good. But in symbian application is good.
1) in Melon Webgate Advanced Call manager in symbian there is voice mail box and call divert function. android doesnot have
2) Uc browser in symbian we can download 8 tasks together.start all tasks and pause all tasks in download list.In android we can download 6 tasks one by one. We don't have Start all tasks and pause all tasks together in download list
Battery backup is very poor.
