_
"The sound and battery life was terrible."
_
"I have noticed a time or two that it's had a bit of a lagging problem, but nothing that actually causes problems and would probably be fixed if I did a battery reset."
_
"The battery is not able to run a full day for us (my wife and I both have the S3) due to the fact we like to play movies and games on it instead of the computer for ease of moving around - but if we did not use it for so much that was screen intensive it would last a lot longer."
_

Button

Button:
"A major complaint that I've heard is the sensitivity of the outside buttons."
_
"When I occasionally take the case off, I do notice that the buttons seem fairly sensitive, however, when I began using the case, my chief complaint was that the buttons seemed a bit stiff, so take my opinion with a grain of salt."
_
"On the SGS3 I can double click on the mechanical button (somethign I've already noted as a weakness of the phone), and while that shouldn't really be a bad thing...3."
_
"I've called Sprint and they did refreshes but I think that is about as useful as the button you push to cross the street, it's more of a feel good that someone is attempting to do something than the issue being resolved."
_
"I liked having the power button on the side of the phone rather than the top and the volume controls are on the opposite side than they are on the EVO, so I was less likely to accidentally bump them."
_
"The physical 'Home' button on the Galaxy sounded like a nice idea in theory, but it kinda sucks in practice and the phone tends to lag between the time the button is pressed and you are actually taken to the home screen."
_
"It has nice rounded corners and easy to reach buttons."
_
"Home button is outdated.5."

Camera:
"Fast, great screen resolution, awesome camera and just like every other droid phone - enough apps to choke a horse with if you have the time."
_

_
"I love the camera features."
_
"The phone has a great camera and other cool specs to it."
_
"camera takes great pictures if your stnading still."

Network

Network:
"would recommend this phone for anyone who wants a bigger phone with great power by the way the Sprint network is not necessarily the most reliable network but that doesn't mean anything against the phone itself the phone itself is incredibly beautiful and I would recommend it 100 percent"
_
"(MMS photo messages may take about 5-10 minutes to locate and download, but DATA simple data transfers *even EMAIL will seldom go through without encountering a NETWORK ERROR)If the battery module describes a lifetime of 8 hours and 25 minutes, expect it to work that long if you leave it at home in a drawer."
_
"Don't think anyone can go wrong with it on the Sprint network."
_
"Sprint's network is going back to 3G as they junk their sub-par existing 4G network and finally build a 4G LTE network."
_
"If only they could make phones that increase the effectiveness of whatever network you're on, that'd be perfect."
_
"WiFi- the wireless g capability makes this a really nice web device, picks up and connects to networks everywhere I go."
_
"I would recommend another network to really test the true powers of the SIII."
_
"The SIII is MUCH better on a decent 4G network."
_
"I have excellent signal strength on Verizon's network."

Price

Price:
"I was even able to find an LTE 4G tower in my town that I didn't know was there (since the 4G on the EVO was different).While it's not the latest and greatest offering from Samsung, the price was spot on at $9.99."
_
"I've come up with a few terse statements that might figure well; following that I'll break down the Pro's, Con's and provide any other commentary for the wary buyer (this is YOUR MONEY we're talking about after all)A dismal, horrible wreck."
_
"Never bought a plan online or over amazon before.... but it was very simple and there are NO HASSELS...price: was 10, it was a pennyship: an 7-8 was pretty quick but NOT crazy its here already fast."
_
"Its pretty antient by todays trends but still a worthy contender for those that want a good phone at a good price point."
_
"Everything that I need in a phone for a great price! "
_
"My son is a heavy user, and after reading the reviews for the S4 we decided that the S3 was the best phone for the money."
_
"Amazon was great offering last years latest & greatest phone at the awesome price."

"My oldest daughter dropped hers also and it's missing huge chunks of screen."
_
"I got this phone 2 days ago and i'm already having problems with it, as soon as I pluged it in to charge, It got overheated,Now the screen is having problems."
_
"A simple soft rubber case with bumpers to prevent damage from falling flat on the screen should work fine."
_
"edited to add: it looks like a lot of the bad reviews here were because of broken screens and subsequent unsatisfactory warranty options."
_
"Sprint said no, that Samsung would never approve a warranty claim for a cracked screen no matter what caused the damage, it is physical damage and not a warranty issue."
_
"Well, not so easy when the screen keeps going black when I try to tap that button."
_
"Fast, great screen resolution, awesome camera and just like every other droid phone - enough apps to choke a horse with if you have the time."
_
"I never used a screen protector and the screen looked pretty good after 2 and a half years of carelessness."
_
"Apps download fast, multi-view is a god send, the screen works well, the camera has good resolution, and it fits in well with my life."

Service

Service:
"I went with Sprint, from the beginning they were terrible at there service."
_
"Regret giving up my service with T-mobile which I feel was MUCH faster on data (in the Los Angeles area, at least), and had free tethering and gave me a pretty sweet deal because I had been with them for so long."
_
"My main gripe is the horrible Sprint service."
_
"The cell signal seems a bit weak, in areas I should have had service I got only roaming."
_
"Initially they wanted to charge me $199 for replacement of the touch screen, but after escalating the problem to yet another customer service manager I was able to get Samsung to replace the touch screen and cover glass for free."
_
"Amazing service!"
_
"Perfectly happy with the phone and the service"
_
"I have Sprint and the service has been very good."
_
"The phone has great displays and I won't discount the fact that the service I was using might have created some complications, but I don't have time to sort out nuances of various devices."
_
"I also really liked being able to pull down the notification bar to toggle on or off services like WIFI, Bluetooth, Sound, etc."
