Refurbished didn't last
3 Star Review   By C80031 on AT&T - Oct 5, 2013   

The S3 I bought was a refurbished one and it worked great for 10 months. Then it mysteriously stopped working. It won't charge, and changing the battery didn't help. Refurbished phones have a 90 day warranty.

Simply the best phone I ever owned.
5 Star Review   By Chistoefur on AT&T - Apr 17, 2013   

Everything about this phone is simply amazing... Sadly I'm on a tight budget and had to get this and not the s4, but this phone is definitely no let down whatsoever! I was a bit nervous about this phone because it is refurbished, but honestly I can't tell at all that this was previously used! The only minor issue is that the power button seems a bit flimsy, but other than that really there's no problems I've found. This phone is a classic and will go down in mobile history as the most popular Android phone ever. I'm looking forward to all the fun I'll have with this device.

Refurbished comes like new!
5 Star Review   By DrewMCO on AT&T - Jan 9, 2013   

I bought the refurbished one and it came looking like it was brand new. I have nothing bad to say about this phone. I've had very minor issues with it, nothing that you wouldn't have with any other phone you buy. I would recommend this to everyone that reads this.

Awesome phone
5 Star Review   By member dyEastwood - Dec 11, 2012   

Strengths: Slim, fast, S voice

Weakness: At&t network

I switched from Verizon to at&t for the rollover and talking while texting and I have to say that was a bad idea but the phone however is amazing. It hasn't force closed on me like my previous droid 3 always did, also there is no more slide out keyboard and that took a little while to get used to but unlike all the other phones I used, this one is pretty much way more responsive. I get a few typo's still here and there but you can download an app called swiftkey 3 and customize it that over time it learns from your texts and will predict the words you use. The gaming on this phone is every nice because of the dual core processor and the screen definition is on par with my DVD player. I watched netflix while on the train and the 4g really keeps up with the connection. The battery lasted me throughout the whole day with normal use and about 10 hours with occasional texting. To save battery though you have to turn off the wifi and bluetooth if you're not using it as it's constantly searching for somewhere to connect and drains your battery. Also you can enable the power saving option in the settings to help save your battery further. The phone in color is a little lacking for me. When compared to the galaxy note it's carbon blue is actually manly looking and when I look at this phone it's like a bright baby-ish blue that I had to purchase a case for as it feels like I'm holding my girlfriends phone. The front of the phone isn't that bad in that it's darker than the rear and a little bit of a different design. A week after I purchased this I saw it in RED at the store so they have more colors. For those that miss the search button have no fear, if you long press the menu button for 2 seconds it acts as the search key and the physical home button is actually a blessing. When I had the soft keys on the phone I would always put my power key to end calls which also takes the phone of sleep or stand-by. What was horrible about that is if you put the phone to your ear and the sensors bugged out it would keep displaying a black screen and no matter what I pressed except for the power button it would stay black. In those cases where you call somewhere that requires you to enter the keys to get to the next menu you would feel as I felt, very angry to hang up and recall while in speaker and having the dial pad out. Completely suggest this phone for first time users and you won't have to get farmiliar with itunes to upload anything it's much like a usb stick or an external hard drive. Just plug it in and you're set to go.

Faster than last generation
5 Star Review   By TheUser on AT&T - Jun 15, 2012   

For those of you that are disappointed in dual core processors; the processor architecture is A15 not A9. In some tests, it's better than the Quad Core processor. Also, US version gets 2GB of ram instead of 1GB of ram with international version.

An amazing phone in my opinion
5 Star Review   By xNorCaL on AT&T - Jun 14, 2012   

The phone looks beautiful to me in either white or blue. Everything i would want in a phone, 2 GB RAM, Qualcomm S4 processor, 4.8" HD super AMOLED screen, front facing camera, 8MP rear facing camera, ice cream sandwich, Too many new features to list but here are some. It has Gorilla glass 2, You can Watch videos while texting/playing game etc, take screen shots, Simultaneous video and image recording, S beam is pretty cool, LTE radio, i have been told international version has good battery life, should be even better with 2GB RAM. The phone is super fast and smooth when operating. It has all the normal things blue tooth, Wi fi, USB etc.

Balancing Reviews
5 Star Review   By ddeemidd on AT&T - Jun 14, 2012   

If you've read the negative reviews, none of the people actually own this phone. They are dissing the quad-core to dual-core, claiming it is dumbed down for the same price. Actually, a 1.5 GHz dual-core will outperform a 1.4 GHz quad-core that a network can't support and will only lead to deteriorated battery. This will not affect the phone's performance and this change actually works for the betterment of efficiency. If you've done your research, this phone is a contender for phone of the year, meant to compete with the new iPhone that will be released this Fall. It will be the BEST android phone on the market, no doubt about it. iOS and Android are personal preferences, with iOS being more simplistic and user-friendly out of the box. That being said, Android has much more customization options, allowing for imported keyboards, camera layouts, etc. The design of the phone is better than the previous Galaxy SII, utilizing the same build quality but now with Gorilla Glass. The display is vibrant, and note while it is not AMOLED+, it will not let down with its vivid imaging. Ease of Use can be what you want it to be. The interaction is more lively, with more animated actions. Battery is phenomenal, just search the battery test against the HTC One X and iPhone 4S and there is no contest. Features are limitless, including Eye-tracking (which may not work flawlessly, but it is still available) to keep the display active while you are looking at the screen, inductive charging so there's no need for wires, and this phone can even act as a USB hub for USB devices or feed its screen to a TV via HDMI. Music is well-defined as Samsung has always stressed its mobile devices to include great media hubs and this is no exception. Coming off of the Galaxy SII may be difficult, but Samsung would not release an inferior product to last year's design. Haters will always be present, but before you let the negative reviews affect the overall rating, please read this and read up on this phone on a reputable review site before dissing it because: 1. you're an avid iPhone owner 2. demo'd the phone for 5 minutes in-store and have no real-life application with the device 3. don't believe this Galaxy is better than the previous Note to readers: I have owned every iPhone generation, and this phone has awed me in more ways than any iPhone ever has.

It's the same as the Galaxy S II
1 Star Review   By Dave12597 on AT&T - Jun 14, 2012   

Look at the specs for both, only major differences are, battery size, and then it evens out almost, one has better talk time, other has better standby time. They are both dual core since US spec doesn't come in quadcore. So what are you paying to get? S BEAM and HD SUPER AMOLED, oh and a new color for the phone if you care and don't get a case to protect it anyways. Wait till something else comes out, this is like upgrading a iPhone 4 to iPhone 4s to get Siri.

Outstanding unit, doesn't need Quad core
5 Star Review   By makstone on AT&T - Jun 8, 2012   

Quad core processors are not compatible with 4G LTE, that's why the AT&T unit doesn't use it. The benefits of LTE far outweigh the benefits of quad core. Also battery life will suffer with current 4core units. The dual core processor in this unit will provide more than enough speed, and isn't "run down" (whatever that means) as the previous post claims. Bottom line...do your own research and the phone sells itself!

TOO MUCH HYPE ABOUT THIS PHONE!
1 Star Review   By david5689 on AT&T - Jun 7, 2012   

There is too much hype about this phone, trust me. I've used this phone and it's really really bad. The worst thing about this is the phone design, it's too boring. I'm anticipating the next generation iPhone, I'm sure the new iPhone will beat this piece of trash Samsung.

Great phone but ATT version is run down
4 Star Review   By s3reviewer on AT&T - Jun 6, 2012   

This is great phone and a real IPHONE killer but ATT's version doesn't ship with the Quad Core processor instead its a run down dual core processor. So you will be getting a less phone for the same price. I hope ATT recognizes this and delivers a quad core version. Buyer beware..
