“Samsung Galaxy S3 still best choice”

Written on: 28/10/2014 by kiran07 (4 reviews written)

I have bought this phone long time ago and I'd say that this phone has given me superb user experience. Earlier I was not sure about Samsung product then I checked all its features at Samsung India site and I was so impressed that I bought this phone on same day. This phone is having superb features like 4.8 HD Super AMOLED Display, 8 MP camera. Over all its still good choice over others phone available in market… Read Full Review

“great phone, poor battery!!”

Written on: 02/06/2014 by Deacon287 (1 review written)

i love love love my s3, i went from an iPhone to an android and was a little skeptical at first but im so glad i did, i love it! nice big clear display, very easy to use and very light. the only downside i have is that the battery is awful! was ok at first but within a few months it doesn't last a whole day! i then bought a spare battery and then also a larger battery online and now that is pretty useless too, still doesn't last all day, nowhere near, lucky if i get to 11am! i do use my phone… Read Full Review

“Fabulous but flawed”

Written on: 15/12/2013 by ae86touge (4 reviews written)

Having owned this phone on contract for 15 months now, I'm due an upgrade rather soon and so the Galaxy S3 will be replaced by a shiny, new phone. Whilst trawling the web for my next handset and weighing up the values of what I need vs what i want, it's also a good time to reflect on my ownership experience with the S3 and how it's performed compared to my expectations. I'll keep it rather brief, because I don't want to bore you however this phone has been all over the world with me, and has… Read Full Review

“First and last Samsung device I shall buy.”

Written on: 01/06/2013 by christerrygwyns (1 review written)

I have had my Galaxy S3 for about a year, and it's a great phone alot of the time. Around three months after purchase, after a firmware update, it became really slow to charge. Then slowly other problems started coming to light. The internet became increasingly slow with use, until an error message appeared. After re-starting all would be well for a while. Apps would stall. A re-start would sort this for a while. Then suddenly my pictures, tunes, and contacts on the phone all vanished. Even… Read Full Review

“reliability issues”

Written on: 04/05/2013 by Bubba10 (3 reviews written)

The phone itself has a brilliant screen and lots of features but suffers from realibality issues. About 6 months after purchase the phone went dead one day when I was out shopping. Upon reasearching on the internet I found a lot of 16 GB UK phones are dying due the nand flash eMMC issue. I contacted Samsung and they arranged a repair with ANOVO Norwich. No response after 10 days and I had to call them up myself and was told it is beyond economical repair and they claim it is due to water… Read Full Review

“Samsung Galaxy SIII”

Written on: 03/04/2013 by SiobhanMac (1 review written)

The new S3 is a brilliant phone, it works fast and accurately. Due to the fact there are no limitations with the Android software there are many more cool and interesting things you can do on your smart phone. From downloading movies to downloading any browser you feel like using. This is much different from Apple software which limits you to what you already have on the phone when you purchase it. I would recommend this phone to my friends and family, it's easy to use and handy. The only down… Read Full Review

“Happy with phone apart from charging fault”

Written on: 09/02/2013 by edward.feczko53 (2 reviews written)

I have had my Galaxy now for nearly 6 months and have to say it is the best phone I have ever owned. The screen is crystal clear so much so that I have even watched full movies on the screen in bed so not to keep my wife awake. The internet connection is fantastic and far much quicker than my old iphone the only thing I will fault is the charging connection. I have to spend a lot of time fiddling with the charging point to actually get it to charge, im guessing there is some sort of… Read Full Review

“Love this phone!”

Written on: 17/12/2012 by techknott (3 reviews written)

Always had iPhones but fancied a change after getting bored with iPhone5. So, I took an expensive 24 month gamble on the S3 after trying it out in the shop.....the best decision I have ever made. Android has come so far in the last coupe years its unbelievable. The phone basically does everything I want it to without having to try and figure out ways to work around a closed file system. Even something as simple as bluetoothing a photo to friends was taken for granted. No need to even root it… Read Full Review

“Love this phone”

Written on: 20/11/2012 by JervisG (2 reviews written)

Took me a while to decide between the iphone and the galaxy, but I couldn't be happier about my purchase. The camera is fantastic quality, having a larger screen is really helpful especially when surfing the web and viewing videos/pictures, and the hand motion shortcuts are unbelievable! each day I learn new and fun ways to tilt the phone that make it even more fun to use. And, the best part is that unlike my friends with iphones, the galaxy is easy to fix if it breaks, and opensource so you… Read Full Review

“JellyBean upgrade not available in all countries.”

Written on: 25/10/2012 by Porus (1 review written)

Though its a relatively new phone, jellybean upgrade is still not available in India. This is a major put-off considering the amount paid (INR39 k at launch in July and INR 36k today)and the fact that jellybean is already available in certain countries.. Also with the launch of the Galaxy Note 2 at a similar price (INR 39k), it sounds steep. Understand that the S2 will also shortly yet the jellybean upgrade, it would be a lot more attractive as its priced at INR 22-24 K. This leaves the… Read Full Review
