Great starter phone
3 weeks ago
Summary: I like the size of the phone it fits the pocket nice. After buying the phone found out that the extended batteries are not available yet, or the great otter box that will save the phone from almost any kind of destruction. For my wife to switch to this phone she had trouble but it is her first and it took her one week to master it. When looking for accessories for this phone on the net be ware as the mini is different from the full s3.
Summary: It's very slippery, easy to drop. Wouldn't use it until you get a cover for it. Can't get from stores yet, so you have to order one. I dropped mine in water and I only had it a short time. When I got it I had to reformat 3 times, until I got all the bugs out. I know this sounds bad, but it is a nice phone overall.
Summary: Have had this for about a month & really like the phone. Size & weight are great, do not like the bigger phones, don't fit pockets or hand well. But, the touch screen doesn't seem to be very responsive, not sure if standard or an issue with this one. Also takes a very long time to charge, 8+hours most of the time. Overall do really like this & am considering upgrading to S IV Mini when available on Verizon.
Summary: I think that this phone is the best phone I have gotten as of yet. I previously had the Samsung Ultra and by comparison the S3 is so much faster and the design is supurb too. I will continue to buy the next generation as it comes out because I love the way this phone is and works.
Pros: Bright display, Durable, Lightweight, sleek, big
Summary: This phone is really nice, but the battery sucks big time. I bought this phone and whenever I charge it I get the "unknown error upload mode" and then the phone would not work unless I take out the battery, but after a month of use the battery would not work anymore or even charge. So I have to get new battery or sell this phone.
Summary: This phone is perfect. Although it would be nice if it had all the features as the S3 but it doesn't. It also has a bad camera but other wise and out standing phone! It has s beam. And great speakers and vary lightweight. The only thing I hope for is that Samsung asks Otter box to make a case for it.
