If you are considering purchasing a new handset, regardless of the make and model, it is always useful to know a little bit about how it performs. Going on the website of the actual device is a good idea to familiarize yourself with what it can and can’t do, but you are never going to be told the truth about the phone. After all, a manufacturer is never going to point out is flaws. This is why honest reviews, by real, independent and unbiased users, are so important. So what do real users tell us about the Samsung Galaxy S3 16GB in blue?
Let’s start on a low note and end on a high note for a change. There seems to be a recurring problem with this device, which seems to be that hairline cracks develop on the bezel. This happens below the button for the headphone, as well as just underneath the power button. Both users and tech journalists have reported on this issue.

Another problem is that when it is taken back to a service centre for this problem, they often refuse to repair it, stating that it was caused by not being careful with the device. It seems, however, that if this is a recurring problem, there is a suggestion that the problem lies not with the users, but rather with the device itself. We also know that the backing of the Samsung is plastic, and that it is quite flimsy. Take the backing off to put in your microSD card and you will soon experience just how flimsy the plastic actually is. Many have been left with a really bitter taste in their mouth, paying quite a high amount for a phone that essentially scratches and breaks.

Now the bad is out of the way, let’s talk about the good. We have to be honest: this phone is the bee’s knees. It is for good reason that many people think this phone is way better than the iPhone 5. It is simply a fantastic device, with the most amazing features. The speed is unsurpassed, the screen images are crisp and clear, both in sunlight and in the dark, and it has fantastic software and hardware.
Indeed, it is a big phone and perhaps not suitable for people with tiny hands. However, perhaps there is a scope for people that do have tiny hands to just use both hands on this device? After all, we are bombarded again and again about news reports that our thumbs are devolving into fingers once again because of the way we use phones. The Galaxy phones, regardless of which model, are truly fantastic.
Another huge benefit is that this phone is affordable compared to other devices. When we consider that this is the most popular device on the market today, it is not a lot more expensive than devices that perform well below par in comparison. Best of all, as time goes on, the price is dropping as well.
