Sprint's variant of the Samsung Galaxy S III is just as good as those sold by Sprint's competitors and is the latest device to support Sprint's brand new LTE network. Find out how Sprint's LTE network rates in Phone Scoop's full report.

The Galaxy S III marks the fourth LTE 4G smartphone available from Sprint. Now that the nation's third-largest carrier has an LTE network of its very own, that's something to get excited about. Though Sprint's version barely differs from that of its competitors, Phone Scoop gave it a whirl the measure performance. If you're a Sprint customer looking for one of the best phones money can buy, find out if the Samsung Galaxy S III is the phone you seek.

Since the Sprint version of the Samsung Galaxy S III is nearly identical to those sold by AT&T, T-Mobile USA and Verizon Wireless, many portions of this review are identical to Phone Scoop's review of those phones. The proper sections of this review (primarily Signal, Sound, and Battery) have been updated to reflect the specific behavior of Sprint's variant.

I'm not sure how this phone 'shatters' those perceptions of junky build. Look at the poor fit of the panels around the headphone jack and charging port- that this phone MSRP's for the same as an iPhone 4S or EVO 4G LTE (which was, for some reason, panned) is embarrassing.

I don't know where to begin on this. Let's talk about the fake brushed metal cheap glossy plastic, which is the same crap Samsung's been using for... ever. It scuffs like crazy with regular use and looks like complete tra...
I think its an embarrassment that the iphone 4s isn't the free phone they give to casual users at upgrade time. The fact that Apple thinks it can get away with pricing THAT piece of junk the same as much more capable phones is an insult to cell phone ...
