  • Samsung Galaxy 3S for people that own one?

    For guys that own one do you love it or hate it compared to all the other phones you have owned?

      I like mine.



      But my previous phone was a flip phone so I can't compare it to anything else.



      So, you ask, why did I choose a Galaxy SIII then? Cuz my daughter switched from an iPhone to a Galaxy. She did the research and I trust her opinion.

        As someone who is pretty much obsessed with phones i'll lay down my thoughts..



        I have had the phone 3 times trying to get away from iphones(iOS has been getting stale for the last couple years)



        Each time i had the s3 the same things sucked..



        1. The screen absolutely sucks outside in daylight...AMOLED screens are just junk outside. No comparison to IPS LCD.



        2. Colors WAY over saturated as usual on Samsung phones, nothing looks realistic. Color profile is only adjustable on international versions.



        3. Android, Even though ICS 4.0 and Jelly Bean are nice, still a very cumbersome OS.



        4. Battery life was meh, probably about 3hrs expected usage per day. On weekends the phone was dead all the time when going out to bars/clubs..got sick of that really quick.



        Only thing i will recommend is get a phone with a IPS LCD. 10x better and more realistic looking color profiles. There are only a few phones out there with them though..



        Iphone - 4 - 4s - 5

        HTC - OneX and 8x

        Nokia - 922

        HTC - Droid DNA





        Either way..if you must stick with android and have verizon, get the DNA. It blows the S3 apart in all catergories..Plus it has the new efficient IPS LCD's from sharp and battery life is great from what i have been reading(10-20% better than the S3)



        If your open to change and hate iphones..try out the Windows phones, they are great. I am probably going to pick up the 8x in the next couple weeks here to replace my iphone 5.

          Thanks I do kind of want something besides a iPhone. I've thought about the iPhone 5 but it just doesn't make me want one. Don't think the Windows phones would be my thing but worth checking out. I also don't want to spend a fortune so price is factor.

                That screen on time, not standby time



                Standby with 3hrs usage with a total time of 12hrs including standby off the charger..That falls into line with all the reviews and other peoples usage.

                  The Galaxy S III is my first ever smartphone and I'm amazed at the **************** it can do. My last cellphone was, like, 10 years ago.

                    **************** samsung screens. They put an annoying blue tint in in their screen, is washes everything over and looks fake. My HTC's LCD screen looks a MILLION times better and is brighter.

                      Ahhh, I misunderstood. I recently had a similar discussion with FRPC about battery saving, and Juice Defender may be something to look at to help maximize battery life. Have WiFi turned off when screen is off, maybe a CPU controller too. Smartphones are great with all we can do with them; having a great battery life is its only big downfall.

                        I don't have the S3, but I have a Galaxy Nexus running Jellybean. Android is great, **************** the haters.

                          I had the S3 for a while and totally loved it. Best phone I've ever had and I've had A LOT of them (IT guy where I work so I pretty much end up test all the phones that come through the company now.



                          The phone gets even better if you root it. Battery life gets longer, ad blocking, free wifi-hotspot...

                              It's not being updates on any version of Android. It's not available in the market anymore either. However you can still download the old versions for Android from Adobe's site.
