This review is from: Samsung Galaxy S3, Blue 16GB (AT&T) (Wireless Phone)
Best phone I ever had! Install Swiftkey and let your fingers fly on the keyboard. My entire iphone fits into the screen of this beauty. The 5 will have to have some major improvements to even come close to the Samsung Galaxy SIII.
I purchased this phone a few days ago and can't keep my hands off it. The battery life is the best I have ever seen on any Android phone. I used it all day yesterday, surfing, texting, youtubing, emailing, etc., and still had 30% at 9:00 last night. I've noticed that my thumbs don't hurt nearly as much either after using this phone for just a few days.
The screen and text is large enough that you don't have to squint and the speed is incredible. I have to wait for several seconds for my email and messaging apps to load on my iphone 4 but not this phone.
Google Wallet is not compatible with the AT&T version of this phone so don't count on that.
If they upgrade the OS to JB soon you might want to wait. I upgraded to JB on my Asus TF300 and lost Flash compatibility. This will be no big deal once more adopt HTML5 but for now you will lose Flash if you do upgrade to JB. JB sped up my tablet considerably but losing Flash is a minor inconvenience for such an increase in speed.
All in all, this is the best phone on the market. Today it is $99 on Amazon and $148 at Walmart. I plan on buying my wife's today.
If you've ever been curious about Android now is the time to upgrade your experience to the Samsung Galaxy S III.
Still loving this phone! Battery Life is awesome! Unfortunately, the $99 is only good for new accounts. Boooo! Loyalty means nothing to any carriers these days.
