1, Just one month after I bought it, it has crashed many many times. Luckly I fixed it.
2, died without any reason after 9 months. I didn't drop it nor did any damage to it.
3, a lot lot of samsung build-in trash apps. Without root the phone, you can not uninstall these trash apps.
I will never buy any samsung products any more!!!!!!!!!!
Last night my phone just died. Apparently this is a SGS3 known issue. However, I've called Samsung support for Latin America this morning and I was informed that because I've bought it here in Amazon, the phone had no Samsung warranty.
The OS was up to date so that doesn't seem to be the problem. I didn't flash it. I didn't do anything unusual to it.
I'm just really disappointed because I loved the phone and now, to be honest, I'm not sure I want to pay any more money to Samsung... I'll probably just buy a Nexus 4 directly from Google.
I'm dumbfounded on this. Like every smart shopper, I did my reviews on this phone, went to the store a few times to try it and finally 11 days ago, purchased it. Right out of the box, the phone would not get over 1 bar of reception regardless of where I am. Drove around town and found 1 spot about 10 miles away where I finally got 3 bars, but, um, my office is not there! Since my initial purchased,I've talked to Verizon countless times. They "boosted" the signal, reset it, and did some other stuff to it to no avail. I took the phone back and they quickly gave me a new one. Once again, same issue except now the phone is dropping calls like crazy plus the camera if way off. The pictures, specially anything vertical, leans to one side and/or looks like it has a "fish eye" effect. So I go back to Verizon, and within 24 hours, they sent me a new phone in the mail I'm excited, this is it,right? 3 minutes into a conversation, the call drops! So, guess what I'm doing in about one hour? going back to Verizon and chosing a totally different phone.
It's a real shame, I really like this one. The screen is huge and it's easy to navigate. What a shame!
If you are having similar issues as me, please let me know. I'm starting to think I'm losing my mind.
ps. Nothing personal against Verizon, they have really gone out of their way to help!! THANK YOU
TheSamsung galaxy s3 was what I thought a fantastic phone until talking on it outside in the cold and my phone shattered around edges,and a hairline crack on screen. Samsung refused to repair without charge n me. Insurance will not cover it either. They consider this incident a physical damage. These phones do not hold up in cold weather! Warning!!!!!
I must say am very annoyed when sellers like bijju lies to their new and potential customers. I purchased a Samsung Galaxy S3 on November 8, 2012 based on there description mainly it stated that the phone was "NEW" box only opened to unlock! That is furthest from the truth. The phone was filled with contact numbers, several whatsapps messages and tons of email.... For a phone that was ONLY opened to unlock!!!. I am truly disappointed and Amazon should have some sort of policies to protect consumers from unscrupulous sellers like "BIJJU". I live outside the US and the conversion rate to one US dollar is 6.45 do the math and you will see that I spend a lot of money on this phone and all I expected was to get what I purchased a NEW phone! Disgusted.....
So my boyfriend bought this phone from you during Christmas and when he got home from the vacation he opened the box and found everything inside but the PHONE. He was very patient and waited for your help but you guys just kept stalling and now you said you can't even give him a refund or a new phone!!! DON'T BUY FROM THIS DEALER.
My boyfriend has every evidence to proof the phone was not in the box but you guys are very irresponsible!!
So I bought the phone in white as a Christmas gift for my girl friend. We went to the t-mobile store to get her a new SIM card only to find out that the phone was an AT&T phone. They claim that the phone was new but that was not the case at all. Do not waist the time to purchase a phone here as it is complete bullsh...
Please dont buy Samsung Galaxy S3. The Phone life is just or Max 5 months. I purchased in the month of July 2012, and today Dec24th it died all of a sudden. The handset is refusing to reboot.
The XDA thread has 56 pages (so far) of people whose mainboards have suddenly died. The devices seem to last between 150 and 200 days before failing
