    I purchased this phone for my wife to replace her beat up Motorolo Razr Flip phone. This was her first smartphone and I was a little afraid she would have a hard time using it. I tested the phone before she got home from work and there were many bells and whistles that are very cool and innovative, which made me worried it would overwhelm a simple user like my wife.

    After my wife played around with the phone for couple of days, she loves the phone and has started customizing the phone the way she likes it.

    I myself own a Samsung Galaxy S Captivate, and have been pretty happy with the phone until now because of the SIII. I am so impressed with the phone, that I will be purchasing one for myself.

    Pros:
    – Screen: Some say iPhone’s Retina Display is better, but I am convinced it is just personal preference. If you like images and the screen to pop out and be lively, Samsung’s AMOLED screen is the way to go. If you like softer tones, you may enjoy the iPhone. I personally like the crisp and sharp contrast of the AMOLED screens. Also the screen is pretty large which to me is a plus.
    – Battery: I have not benchmarked the battery, so this is not a technical comparison, but since we just got this phone, my wife and I have been using the phone pretty much non-stop and the battery lasts the whole day. I have not seen the battery level go down below 50%.
    – Weight: The phone feels really light holding on to it.
    – Performance: The phone runs smooth. I’m very impressed how fast the phone downloads files and streams vidoes over AT&T’s 4G LTE network (Orange County, CA). I really can’t tell the difference between the mobile data speeed with my home’s Cable Modem using a Wireless N+ router. It’s pretty fast.
    – Camera: the rear facing camera takes pretty sharp pictures and videos.

    Neutral
    – I’ve read some complaints about the casing feeling cheap. I honestly don’t get that. I thought it feels nice and makes the phoen lighter. I didn’t know people liked heavy phones so much.
    – Over heating? I kid you not, we are constantly using this phone. I personally was using the phone for about an hour straight and didn’t feel any uncomfortable heat. My Captivate however feels like it’s going to melt. And I’ve played around with iPhone’s. Those get pretty hot also.
    – NFC. I think this will only be useful when it becomes more commonplace. For now, it feels gimmicky.

    Cons:
    – The pen that Samsung makes for this is pretty pricey (for a pen).
    – S-Voice. Kind of gimmicky. I don’t like Siri to start with, but S-Voice is even more useless.
    – S-Suggest. You can disable it, but still find it useless.

    Overall, I’m very happy with the phone, and happy that my wife is using it, and having fun with it! I’m planning on getting the blue one soon.

    Best phone I’ve had to date (at the time of this writing of course), October 9, 2012

    This review is from: Samsung Galaxy S III 4G Android Phone, White 16GB (AT&T) (Wireless Phone)

    To preface this review, I’ve had the following smartphones most recently in this order:

    iphone 3gs
    iphone 4
    HTC inspire
    Samsung Galaxy s2 skyrocket
    Samsung Galaxy s3

    PROS:

    - screen size and resolution. 4.8″beast 720×1280.
    - Screen clarity is amazing. I can clearly read the screen in broad daylight with no strain.
    - Processor is blazing fast. No lag with multiple apps open and switching between them.
    - size, shape, and weight are all perfect for me. This phone is surprisingly thin.
    - speaker phone is loud and clear
    - cell phone reception and internet speed are exceptional
    - call clarity is excellent
    - GPS works MUCH better than the HTC inspire, and as good or better than the skyrocket
    - battery life is better than the HTC inspire, and about the same as the gs2 skyrocket (make sure to fully deplete the battery as soon as you get this phone. Then give it a 100% charge without taking it off the charger. Android OS needs to calibrate the battery.)
    - built in task manager works very well.
    - bottom app bar is customizable.
    - camera takes excellent pictures.
    - music player sounds great and is very responsive.
    - physical home button is nice to have
    - typing and playing games are both great experiences due to the huge, super responsive touch screen
    - Android 4.0.4 runs MUCH better on this device than it did on the galaxy S2 skyrocket
    - Shutter speed on the camera is very fast
    - I reliably(so-far) use the built-in clock/alarm app as my everyday wake-up alarm. The smart alarm feature is really cool too!
    - Comes with headphones with in-line controls. They are good for the gym, but the sound is a bit lean.

    CONS:
    - battery life still isn’t as good as the iphone4. This is primarily with regards to standby time.
    - Touchwiz doesn’t seem to have as many pretty widgets as htc sense, but I’ve found some 3rd party replacements (extended controls, beautiful widgets, etc)
    - no more touch-search-button (only menu, back, and home buttons now). I actually liked having that button.
    - phone is massive, so one-handed use is very difficult depending on what case you use.
    - S-voice is a joke, but you can use a different app…
    - Camera photo quality isn’t quite up to par with apple’s newer offerings, but is still very respectable.
    - Over a period of a few months, the samsung branded software keyboard will start to get VERY sluggish. I recommend downloading the stock ICS or Jellybean keyboard from the Google Market!

    OTHER:
    - I recommend the “Llama” app to setup cell phone tower profiles. When I enter my work’s cell phone area, my phone automatically turns off wifi and gps, as well as mutes my phone. When I leave work my phone automatically turns my volume back on. When I get home I have it turn wifi on and gps off, and when I leave home it turns wifi off. VERY useful and it saves battery life.

    Honestly, this is the best phone I’ve ever used. Battery life may be a consideration for some people, but the micro USB charging port makes having (or borrowing) chargers pretty convenient. The size of the phone is awesome for me, but you may want something smaller.

    This review is from: Samsung Galaxy S III 4G Android Phone, White 16GB (AT&T) (Wireless Phone)

    Earlier this year I slipped off to Evo-land and had a great experience with the HTC Evo One X, but at the end of the day, AT&T’s version of the One X was too limited: smaller space (16GB instead of 32), no added storage, sealed battery, too much pre-loaded junk, too much data-gobbling. I wasn’t ready to live that much in the cloud.

    Thus far, the Galaxy S III has been the answer to all of my problems. It has none of the senility of my Galaxy I (which got really weird there at the end), it is far snappier than the Galaxy II I played with, and the Android 4.0 “Ice Cream Sandwich” OS has me giddy with its response time and smooth transition from one program to another. Yes, the Galaxy S III really can multi-task, and is happy to do so. Best of all, I slipped in my 32GB SD Card and we were ready to go. The HTC One X consumed just over 6GB of its built-in 16GB. This means an AT&T Evo One X has only 9 GB of room. Out of the box, the Galaxy S III takes up a little over 4GB of the native 16, but will allow you to slot in an SD card of up to 64GB in size for even more room. If the battery stops holding a charge one day, I’ll just open the case, pop it out, and put in a new one–how handy!

    I’ve seen some people have battery problems, but so far I’ve managed to go up to two days without having to charge. It all depends on what I’m doing, but even with what I consider to be heavy activity (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, several calls, lots of surfing), I don’t have to charge the phone more than once a day.

    INTERFACE AND SETTINGS
    With the Galaxy S III’s interface, there are a LOT of options that let you customize your phone to be just as you want it: it’s as if the makers of both the Galaxy III and the Droid OS decided to bend over backwards and hand you the keys to pretty much every feature you can think of. For example, if you hate eating data when someone e-mails you an attachment, you can set the phone to only pull down attachments when on Wi-Fi, or not at all. Check for new messages anywhere from ‘continuous’ to ‘daily’ to ‘never’ (which means ‘manually’). Hotmail works much better now that Exchange is supported–my Galaxy I would take forever, drop out, freeze, or give me nagging, ‘Too many requests’ messages.

    Getting around is smooth swiping with the Gorilla Glass on the Galaxy S III’s face, but I still went with a so-so Steinheil screen protector. Either way, SWYPEing is easier: not only is the onscreen keyboard huge, with the keys generously spaced wherever possible, but the SWYPE interface draws your swipe line cleanly and it is easy to see what word you are SWYPEing. Word suggest is still annoying–tap out the word “text” and get “Texas” inserted–but once I turned this off, everything else worked well. If there’s one disadvantage to the Galaxy S III, it’s that both the phone and the screen are a real fingerprint magnet: the Evo X picks up stains and smudges, but was just a bit better about not getting as much smeariness on the glass. Still, with either device the problem is solved by a quick swipe across your shirt.

    APPS AND WIDGETS
    Android phones now use the Google Play Store instead of the Droid Market and it works fairly well: enter your Google account info and you’re ready to go. AT&T customers still get CRapplications they can’t remove, but your own third-party apps can also be side-loaded after changing one setting in the options. You can’t root the phone (yet, anyway), but I’m not seeing the horrible performance drag of all that AT&T stuff like I used to. I’m especially fond of the side-loaded Amazon App Store, which nimbly pushed all my apps down with no complaints, security warnings, or performance drops (take that, ol’ Galaxy I!)

    Applications now come in two form factors: Apps and Widgets. When you tap the ‘Applications’ button from the home screen, the resulting screens are tabbed between a list of Applications and a list of Widgets. Think of an ‘App’ as meaning “An icon I tap to launch a program” and a ‘Widget’ as “A thing I may launch, or may just interact with at the screen and never need to open separately” (like the Weather, the media player, or the flashlight). When you swipe from one home screen to another, adding Widgets now gets a Windows Phone like twist: some widgets are double-wide like a Windows Phone 7 tile, and some (like the media player or the clock/weather on the main home screen) take up half the screen–the variety of sizes also resembles the coming Windows 8 Metro interface. Instead of feeling crowded, it reminds me of how much fun it was to play with my first desktop gadgets in Windows Vista.

    NETWORKING AND DATA
    Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are very responsive: connecting to various networks or pairing is quick. If you connect to the type of network that requires you to open a browser and agree to something/provide a user ID before you can connect, the Galaxy S III will prompt you accordingly and…
