Rated 5 out of 5 by TheUltimateOne Just...WOW!
Amazingly and Intuitively Special!
There is that little something that makes it different from other phones.
Android is the sole gem in this device, and the UI is dazzling and very fast!
It beats the iPhone with no doubt! Good Job Samsung!
S Voice is good, I hope it supports more languages in future updates.
Apps are amazing, Screen size (4.8") is the perfect size, any smaller or bigger would ruin it.
That is why I prefer the S3 better than Note.
S Voice is the best and the 8MP is good, Smart stay is also another helpful feature, it gives me a better experience without the phone locking by itself while reading something long.
Battery = Just...WOW!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Leigh Recommend to a friend, I recommend to everyone!
I do wonder if half of these negative reviews that have been submitted are false.
I have had this phone now 4/5 Months and I am seriously impressed with it.
Battery life is the only niggle I have as I am a heavy data user, and it only lasts a day (Have to charge it each night before bed). Thats about the only improvement I would make but then the phone does so much Im not totally surprised by the battery life.
Seriously glad I didn't wait for the IP5, as from what I have seen is lacking serious features and the OS just isn't as smooth despite what they say.
Simply put its a fantastic phone! and I truly believe I have the best phone on the market at present.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SamDH1 Can't get off it!
The SIII is just amazing. Starting from the screen, the blacks are unbelievably deep while the colours are vibrant and look amazing. Video playback is great on such a big screen which just slips into the pocket with ease. The UI is smooth and everything just flies open with no problem. Games are no issue and connectivity around the house to my other products are no issue, even fruity products can get connected with this which was a great plus. Sure, the battery gets sucked down, but the device is so fun that it is no surprise, I can hardly stop playing games or finding out what else this sucker can do! Love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Delzee The large screen makes all the difference.
This is a fantastic phone with a nice large screen that's perfect for video on the go, you can even change the colour saturation to your liking. The only down side i find with the screen is that it just isn't bright enough for watching films when their are dark scenes in the movie.
Web browsing is great in landscape mode and at times the screen could be a little to bright, but that's ok as you can just go into the browser settings and lower it, but after the last update that feature has gone from the browser settings, and so has the ability to make the screen as bright as you like when surfing the web.
If i now start on what i really love about this phone i'll be here all day.

I think it's brilliant. I had the Galaxy S2 and thought it was fast. Got the Galaxy S3 and WOW, just WOW. Super quick. I also like the design! I really like it! Screen size, perfect. Any bigger is a no no for me, 4.8inches if the perfect size. The camera is really good, zero lag is true! This device replaced my iPad, hardly use it anymore now. As for battery, It is great! Lasts all day, and when charging, it charges really fast compared to my previous Galaxy S2. I watched a YouTube video in HD, and my Mum was amazed at how clear the screen was. The features like Pop-up Play and Smart Stay work really well. No lag when playing a video as well as using the internet, texting or gaming.

I've had this device for a few weeks now and all I can say is that I love it, It's the best phone I've ever used and it's also the best in the market.
I've chosen this phone because of the features and the Good things I've heard about the older S2
and also because it runs android, and Samsung are very good with keeping their devices updated with latest OS Can't wait for the next update (JellyBean).
If your looking for a nice, fast and feature packed phone this is the phone for you!
The only bad thing I can say about the phone is that the build Quality could of been better for the price of the phone but other than that it's a great device and the best from the other phones I've used in the past.

Rated 1 out of 5 by li*m GOOD PHONE IF YOU LIVE IN A PADDED ENVIRONMENT
This phone is advertised as being "designed for humans". After having had this handset for only three weeks I believe this slogan is laughable. Humans do not live in an environment which has cushioned flooring throughout, and samsung obviously have not realised this throughout their design and production of this product. Beware if you drop this phone from anything above a couple of inches onto any surface other than carpet (unless its onto mattress) the screen will shatter. This will then VOID any warranty you have with the phone and will cost hundreds of pounds to repair. Be warned.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Lucylemon35 Poor performance after 11 months
My individual experience - Great for the first 6 months, gradually performance has got worse and worse, I have difficulty accessing contacts and various apps as the screen freezes. When someone calls or texts, I can't always see who it is, it just shows a number. The battery lasts for around 12 hours with little usage, less if used more regularly. I sometimes don't receive texts that have been sent to me.
Why I dislike it - It was one of the most expensive phones on the market at the time yet the price tag doesn't reflect the problems I am now experiencing 11 months after purchase.
