4.8" HD Super AMOLED Display
Cons: Slightly Dim display
S Voice needs work
Verizon is last to get Jelly Bean update
Summary: Overall this phone is very solid. I came from the Droid Razr M which replaced my HTC Thunderbolt. After 2 months decided to sell it and get the Galaxy S3 and so far have not looked back.Jelly Bean was released today 12/14/12 and improved almost everything. The phone has pretty much zero lag now (thanks to "project butter", extra filters for the camera, Google Now, improved S Voice, and much more.
The design of the phone is stunning. Samsung was able to pack a large beautiful screen into a compact, ultra thin device. I'm a guy that wears fitted jeans and this phone has no problem slipping in and out of my jeans, nor do i even notice it is really there thanks to the thin profile. The phone has a nice glossy look to it (i have the pebble blue GS3). For some, the hard button at the bottom of the phone is a hit or miss for people. Personally i like it considering it has multiple functions. The phone however does have somewhat of a plastic feel to it, and without a case, the back cover can scratch easily. Overall this phone has a very solid and durable feel even with the plastic build, and with the rounded smooth edges, this phone is very comfortable to hold even with its size.
Like everyone else says, this phone is a feature filled phone. With NFC, S beam, motion gestures, pop-up play, and the many other customizable features that come along with android, this phone is one of the best when it comes to what you can do with your phone. And although many have been hating on the S Voice function, it is still pretty handy and usually does what i need it to do... Well... Most of the time. I'm not saying it doesn't need improvements because compared to Siri, it definitely does. And once Verizon finally approves of their GS3 Jelly Bean update, Google Now will only make it better.
With its blazing fast 1.5ghz dual core qualcomm snapdragon S4 processor, generous 2GB of RAM, 16GB internal storage (expandable memory for additional 62GB), lightning fast 4G LTE, 8mp camera, 1080p HD Video Recording, Massive 4.8" HD Super AMOLED Display, this phone talks the talk, and walks the walk. This phone seems to make multitasking a breeze, entertainment a blast, and capturing photos for those kodak moments seamless. Although Samsung has tuned its UI down, i feel like they could tune it down a little further. This phone is extremely fast, but i did face some hiccups every now and then with Touchwiz. And with a lack of the Jelly Bean update, i can't help but feel like Verizons version of the GS3 is being held back on its full capabilities.
This phone is a well crafted, feature packed, blazing fast phone. Phones like the Galaxy S3 are what defines this day and ages smartphones as our generations mobile computers.
