  •  first Samsung phone that had impressed me. 09 May 2014

    4/5 stars

    By Narendra Chandana

    I always hated Samsung phones because same as the apple they also over price their products. I never liked a Samsung phone before Galaxy S3. I always new Andriod OS is capable of lot of things we could imagine and the first phone I got my hands which could utilize andriod power was Galaxy S3. Its like feather, so beautiful. With great performance and amoled display with a screen resolution of 1280x720.... wow thats an amazing display. Its 1.4GHz processor combined with 1GB of ram gives you great performance. I take pictures a lot and the 8MP camera in this phone is just awesome. As every samsung product, this is also overpriced at the time of its release and even now at 23,000 I still feel it is overpriced because you could get a better phone The Motorola Moto X at this price which beats Galaxy S3 in every spec we could talk about and also Moto X has voice processor and context processor too. I wish samsung could have slashed its price near to 17,000/- and probably it won't help now because OnePlus One is going to be launched very soon at price under 20,000/-

    By Thulasi Sreenath

    My first Samsung phone & I have to say, it is too good. Though it plastic, build quality above par, design is beautiful & high end. The display is incredibly sharp & vibrant. The camera app is good & it takes brilliant photos but not in low light situations. It's really fast at carrying out every task. There are little-to-no interruptions when performance matters. It can handle heavy games without any lags. The call quality is just amazing. The size of phone is not friendly for one hand user like me. Battery capability is good, but it can get hot during usage, that’s disappointing. I persuaded many people to buy this phone & no one is disappointed with this.

    By Abin Baby

    This phone pack an -Exynos Quad-core 1.4 GHz processor along with -1 GB of RAM.At first it had - Ice Cream Sandwich and later got- jellybean update.and now some versions of S3 already got there -kitkat update.It has- 720p AMOLED display .It has- 8MP rear and -1.9MP front facing camera which is good enough for decent photos. S3 has -16 GB onboard memory which can be further expanded upto- 64 GB with microsd card.It has all connectivity option except LTE for international version.It packs a -Li-Ion 2100 mAh battery and it wont last a day.Almost need to charge it twice a day. As far as performance and user experience is concerned it perform well with basic apps and when it come to top end games it lag a bit and shows frame-drop while playing.Works well with basic games like Temple run and upto games with graphic intense like Dead trigger.It is getting hot while playing games having huge file size.Onces my battery app showed 45 c while playing(that was extremely high temperature for a phone).The phone started behaving like this after it was updated to 4.3.There is 831 mb ram which is usable and gets 350 mb free with no background app running . This phone is good enough to take normal workload to some extent and i recommend this for for those play with messaging apps and basic games..:-)
