- Reception and call quality Crystal clear voice even with Bluetooth headset. Volume is perfect for me.
- Display One of the main feature. 1080p HD video playback made my day.
- Battery life It's awesome compared to most of the smartphones out in the market. I'm quite a heavy user and it just barely holds for the day. Usually from 9am to 10pm.
- Camera The quick shuttle never fails to impress me. Capture every single precious moment of my life. Worth it. Quality of the picture is also excellent.
- Ease of use Quite easy to get use to everything inside it. Has User Manual for download in the Google Play store.
- Design and form factor The round cut corner make me feel comfortable to hold. Sleek color design attracts me a lot.
- Portability (size / weight) 4.8 inch screen fits just nice in my hand. Doesn't feel heavy until that sometimes I do forget the phone is already in my pocket!
- Media support Generally supports everything I need in daily life. E.g. office documents, music, video, text files.
- Durability So far so good. Didn't face any problem, no scratch or cracks found as I always put them together with my keys in the pocket.
- Ecosystem (apps, accessories, etc.) Google Play store is just awesome. Tons of app waiting for you to download. I've got all the apps for my daily need without paying a single cent.
Overall is an excellent smartphone. Loved the motion features. Really brings a lot of convenience to me. Worth the price. Display size and quality is outstanding. Use it to view videos and MVs a lot while on waiting time. A lot of modifications can be done without rooting, making my phone unique. There are really quite a number of features makes this phone out stand the others. Can't really list them out one by one. It's really an awesome piece of work from Samsung. Keep the good work. No complain towards the phone. I will be hoping for more from Samsung in the future. And I do hope Samsung could do an official update for S3 from Ice Cream Sandwich to Jelly Bean.
