Phone Scoop Review
Aug 6, 2012 by Eric M. Zeman
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. read review ›
BEST phone i have ever had. All my coworkers have iphone's and when i came to work with this phone they were all like i should have got the Galaxy S3!! I don't know much about phones but the galaxy is light, screen is clear and large. i have no cons with this phone only pro's!
I've owned enough phones that tags like the best phone ever are over played. This phone is expensive at $499 outside of contract at Metro PCS. Is it worth it? For most I would say yes!
- Battery is all day +
- Beautiful, big display
- No learning curve, everything is where it belongs
- Excellent call quality
- LTE works better on the Metro network than any other handset I've used
- Feels cheap
I don't know how this phone will do in the long term. I do know that if I can get 18 months out of it then my total monthly cost with the phone and the plan is $57.77 for unlimited everything. Talk about a bargain!

great phone. best on sprint lineup
Pros: great screen, great phone speed, processor is sick, face recognition actually works, great camera, very thin and lightwieght
Cons: when using 3G internet seems a little slower than my galaxy s 2
Not as good as other phones
This phone was a replacement for my iPhone 4S that was having battery issues. I should have gotten another one.
Pros: screen is large and easy to read. Phone is slim and the battery life so far has been much better than my iPhone.
Cons: spelling autocorrect just isn't done very well. iPhone beats it hands down. Siri much easier to use. Messaging threads are not as good as the iPhone.
The apps are pretty much the same anymore between the two systems. Maybe when LTE gets implemented that will make up the difference between the two.
All in all I am a little disappointed in the Galaxy. The iPhone is still the phone to beat.

Samsung has done it again.
This phone does it all, and only falls short in a couple of ways. No long list from me, only the things I felt were a con.
Battery, battery, and battery. That's it. Everything else, is top of the line. GO GET IT!!!
So-so Battery problems
The reason for my 2 stars:
1. The screen is big.
2. The phone is thin.
3. Speakers and call reception is great.
1. The battery life just plain sucks. The first two weeks I had the phone it was great, but these past two weeks it has been awful.
I go to my clinical rotation at the hospital around 6:30 am it is at 100% around 8 am I go on break and it is at 80%. I am not playing games, or checking emails. In fact I don't have wifi on, no gps, no bluetooth.
Sometimes I pull it out of my pocket and it is warm to the touch around the usb port.
I really liked this phone when I got it. Now I want to throw it in the Gulf of Mexico. Or better yet throw it at one of the Sprint representatives that don't know what they are talking about.
I did go to Sprint and tried to explain my issue but they basically told me I was crazy. It was kind of bad. Now I might have to try a new store. Well good luck to those that are buying it. I hope you have better luck.
Samsung S3 good phone
I agree, not much different from my Nexus Google phone running ICS. I had poor phone call quality, not sure if that is fixed yet or not? Camera is fast, 8 mega pixes, but color could be improved a bit. Very Very fast camer in burst mode. Sprints network does not help this phone at all. very slow 3g speeds in my home town. Overall, screen good, no lag for apps, phone app very good. I rate a 4.0.
This phone has blown me away. Ive had all the galaxy models and this is by far the best. I also have the iphone 4s with Verizon and this phone puts it to sleep.Screen is beautiful once you adjust the brightness. The phone is blazing fast and take amazing photos. There will be no need to carry a camera or a recorder any longer its just that good. This is by far the best phone out right now. Amazing device samsung really knocked it out the park with this one.
Best phine hands down
I think this is the best phone out right now I love this phone I had the Evo lte and returned it to het this.
Pros. Screen size, software swipe to screen capture, S Voice, 1.9 front facing cam, super thin, Android 4.1 gaming is unreal in this bad boy.watch my vid below.
CONS JUST ONE. The battery could be a little better I
Think the Evo lte lasted a little longer. But hay still worth having this phone at least you can swap battery out.
Best phone to date from Sprint
This is absolutely the best phone ever, from Sprint. I've had all the high end Windows and Android phones from HTC and Samsung, and this phone is hands down, the best.
