Great phone but the screen is too dim for me

 

Jul 2, 2012 by Pego

I went to check this phone out at sprint although I would be getting the verizon version if I decided to purchase but I was very disappointed in the screen brightness at full 100% brightness it was like my motorola razr maxx at 50% as I compared them side by side. This is weird as the galaxy nexus was much brighter as well. The screen was too dim for me.

LOVE this phone!

Carrier: Sprint

I just got the Galaxy S 3 and I went from being a die hard iPhone user! I swore I'd never use an Android based phone. But I got to the point to where texting was difficult and used my husbands phone with Swype on it and LOVED IT!!! I found it so much easier to use (due to Carpel Tunnel) I cant really think of any complaints. It seems like you can customize basically any setting in this phone!!!

Things I LOVE!!!:
Swype (of course)
Changing the fonts
Much easier to download myxer tones
Love the set up of the phone
Love having the main button plus the back and menu button!
Being able to customize my texting background
Speech to text

Ok so I have barely had the phone activated for 6 hours and I am constantly finding out awesome new things!!!!

I hope others find this phone as awesome as I do!!!

BEST PHONE I'VE EVER PURCHASED

 

Mar 16, 2013 by KingPhoneReviewer

I phone it amazingly fast, stable, and intuitive. Samsung did it right with this phone. Sound is incredible and does not distort when volume is at max. The clarity of the screen is amazing when I'm watch HD on Netflix or Youtube and the battery life is ASTOUNDING! I expected the battery to discharge faster than my other android phone because the screen was much larger but it actually goes way more because of the integrated power saver and data switch options.

10/10 for me.

PS: JELLY BEAN IS AMAZING ON THIS PHONE!

Had iPhone before and I am never going back!

Pros:
Great screen, able to dim just dark enough which is nice.
VERY fast doing anything!
Doesn't come w/ much bloatware.
Lots of neat features that you don't see on other models such as the new motion options, those keep me interested in the phone.
LED notification light.

Cons:
Battery life isn't any better than the original Galaxy S but it has a much larger battery in it? The screen isn't THAT much bigger.
Samsung's version of swype is not nearly as accurate as real swype.
Service is poor. Places that I was able to make calls before are nothing but a dream now. This is the biggest issue.
The speaker volume does not get loud enough leaving me saying "what?"

Nice screen etc, but missing some things

 

Jul 1, 2012 by mbrenner

This phone is great looking and works well. Screen, camera software all very good.

However, the Sprint version has no SIM slot so you can't get a card when traveling outside of the US like the other carriers who have the SIM Card slot. The Verizon phone is LTE and CDMA and they have a SIM slot and will offer GSM overseas use.

Also it would be nice if they put a micro HDMI port on these, so you don't need a proprietary adapter to connect it to a hidef TV?

On a personal prefference note. This phone is really quite thin, which people must value highly, because I would much rather have a phone that is 1/3rd thicker with twice the battery capacity. Only motorola seems to build a phone for people who value battery life, this need being met with the razor max. .
