Review: Samsung Galaxy S III for Verizon
Phone Scoop takes Verizon's version of the Samsung Galaxy S III for a spin. Does anything set it apart from the AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile versions? We find out.
AD article continues below...
The Galaxy S III - Samsung's flagship smartphone for 2012 - finally lands on Verizon's store shelves this month. The GS3 may be Samsung's most important phone this year. In the hyper-competitive smartphone market, Samsung needs the GS3 to fend off devices such as HTC's One series and Apple's iconic iPhone line. Can it? The GS3 is so packed with features, even advanced users will have a hard time putting them all to use. If you want to carry one of the most advanced smartphones available, the Samsung Galaxy S III fits the bill.
Since the Verizon Wireless version of the Samsung Galaxy S III is nearly identical to those sold by AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile USA, many portions of this review are identical to Phone Scoop's review of those phones. The proper sections of this review (primarily Camera, Signal, Sound, and Battery) have been updated to reflect the specific behavior of Verizon's variant.

Sprint, T-Mobile Agree to Halt Sharing Location with Some Apps
Following moves made earlier in the day by Verizon and AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile have now said they also will cease sharing customer location data with certain third-party apps and services. Sprint said it is "beginning the process of terminating its current contracts with data aggregators to whom we provide location data." T-Mobile CEO John Legere tweeted, "I've personally evaluated this issue & have pledged that @tmobile will not sell customer location data to shady middlemen." The matter rose to attention after some third-party location brokers left the real-time data of millions of customers unprotected.
