Pros Thin, light, amazingly fast, awesome screen.
Cons BATTERY LIFE.I did everything I could to minimize how much battery was being used. Starting with 100% battery 15 minutes of surfing will have you at 85% battery. You cant leave review of this phone of ATT website for obvious reason.
Summary Battery life completely kills this phone. If battery life was on par with other available phones dating back 3 years ago this would be the phone to have. As it is, its not worth a cent. Samsung does not acknowledge this issue and ATT will not let you leave a review of the phone in obvious fear their site would be flooded with angry customers.
Pros Plenty of bells and whistles
Fun to use
Cons AWFUL reception. Dropped nearly every call that I made. Beware! It might be the "Next Big Thing" but its not much of an actual phone. I am a us cellular customer.
Summary Went to the motorola electrify and its fantastic!! Us Cellular didn't even put up a fight, I traded the first phone in thinking maybe I had a lemon. The second phone didn't work either, so they took it and gave me an actual phone because they new it was a problem!
Pros Nice screen, fast
Cons expensive, buggy, slippery
Summary I purchased T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S3 on 8/30/12 for a full price - $650. Phone was working properly for the first day, the second day, proximity sensor stopped working and the screen was on during the call, so I was hitting other buttons by accident. Finally, when the screen went out, it never came back on, when I removed the phone from my ear and tried to push any number. I went back to store and they did replace the phone - no question asked. The second phone was working fine the first day, the second day, the phone started shutting down on its own. It vibrating very quick and shut down, approx 5 times a day. I was unable to turn it back on, so I had to remove the battery and put it back. So I decided, the phone is not worth of my money. I currently own Samsung Galaxy S2 and I am very happy with it. I just thought, this may be a better phone, but the opposite is the truth. It also had much worse reception in same area, where I live and work. My Galaxy S 2 always gets full bars on reception, Galaxy S 3 was getting only 1-2 bars only.
Pros Less weight
super sensitive touch
Feels great in the hand
Awesome video recording
Summary When listening to tracks in Play Music app, I'm unable to change the song using earphone controls or using volume button. I have to unlock the screen and open the app to change the song. This becomes difficult when i'm driving. I feel, the music app needs to be improved or I have to find any other music player which does this function with which I can change the track using earphone controls.
Pros Big screen
Cons WIFI sucks, overheats, dim screen, Start up from shut down state takes 30 seconds. Solutions offered by tech support were basic and didn't help. Samsung knows there are problems with WIFI reception and over heating but aren't addressing them.
Summary Shoulda waited for the IPhone 5
