5.0 out of 5 stars Great Smartphone!, September 10, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Samsung Galaxy S3 i9300 16GB - Factory Unlocked International Version Blue (Electronics)
At the time of this review this is the best Android smartphone. That's what I expected when ordered and when I got it, I was not disappointed. Those familiar with Android will find all usual features, in a fast responding hardware, a beautiful large screen and a very thin and slick profile. Also some nice Samsung widgets and apps that come with it make initial configuration quick. The phone came unlocked and I was able to use my SIM card without any additional steps, besides the fact that it had to be converted into a microSIM using my knife :)
Only one surprise when I got it - the phone came pre-configured for the German market, including language settings and some local bloatware. Eventually it was not a problem, I just switched the language and removed the bloatware (most of it was removable).

A few points worth mentioning:
Speed - I have had quite a few Android devices, phones and tablets - this is the fastest and smoothest one by far.
Camera - I was very surprised with the speed of the camera and the quality of the pics.
S-Voice (Siri equivalent) - pretty much worthless at this point...
Contacts - I liked the additional options in the Samsung version, such as merging various user profiles (Facebook, Google, Skype etc) into one contact.
Sound - Seems that the sound quality and max volume in the headphones are better than other devices I have/had.
It has a Barometer, it's nice to have, still trying to find uses for it.
