"great phone until the screen cracks w/o u touching it!"2.5 starson by muffinhoney
Pros: android OS great, choices of apps on google play excellent, the large HD screen is wonderful, downloads are fast if you are on 4G LTE, overall I chose the S3 over iPhone 5 because of price (I got mine for $50 @ Best Buy during a sale).
Cons: downloads are slow when on 3G network and on Sprint's network it tells me I am roaming when I'm well within the area (not in the boonies!) after having my cell for 3 months i wake up 1 morning & the screen is cracked w/o anything touching it!
Summary: Buyer BEWARE!! If you got a S3 that didnt have defective Gorilla Glass 2, congratulations! You will be happy for the remainder of your contract. If you are like the others of us that Samsung has chosen to ignore & will not honor the 1 year warranty on the cell & repair the screens & acknowledge there is a problem, you might be like me & wish you had purchased the iPhone 5! Sprint's insurance, Asurion wants $150 deductible which is completely ridiculous & disporportionate to the price of the cell! That's more than the deductible for my car! I should have kept the Best Buy/Geek Squad insurance instead of wanting everything on my Sprint bill. Samsung can't call every cracked or scratched screen customer abuse when I watched on YouTube Gorilla Glass 2 demonstration @ CES 2012 & 127 lbs of pressure exerted on the glass before it broke. Samsung you can do better!
