Samsung Galaxy S III Verizon Wireless review: Samsung Galaxy S III Verizon Wireless

 

Editors' note: This review of Verizon's Samsung Galaxy S3 varies from my review of the T-Mobile , AT&T , and Sprint models in the areas of apps, call quality, and data performance.

The Samsung Galaxy S3 comes fully loaded with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, 4G LTE capability, a zippy dual-core processor, and a strong 8-megapixel camera. S Beam is an excellent software enhancement, and the handset's price is right.

The Galaxy S3's screen is too dim, and Samsung's Siri competitor, S Voice, disappointed us.

Pumped with high-performing hardware and creative software features, the Samsung Galaxy S3 is an excellent, top-end phone that's neck and neck with the HTC One X.

Review: Samsung Galaxy S III for Sprint

 

Sprint's variant of the Samsung Galaxy S III is just as good as those sold by Sprint's competitors and is the latest device to support Sprint's brand new LTE network. Find out how Sprint's LTE network rates in Phone Scoop's full report.

Review: Samsung Galaxy S III for Verizon

 

Phone Scoop takes Verizon's version of the Samsung Galaxy S III for a spin. Does anything set it apart from the AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile versions? We find out.

Great phone & great price.

 

Great phone & great price. Prepaid is definitely the way to go. Don't be suckered into a long contract with lots of extra charges.

Great Phone Terrible Verizon Plan

 

The phone is outstanding. Returned it when we found out that Verizon only had 2 monthly pre pay plans. $45 and $60 defeat the purpose of pay as you need/prepaid phones.

Good Android Smartphone

 

It sometimes gives me trouble about connecting to the computer or saving my contacts but is a great cell phone for those that cannot afford a contract phone.

Month to month & form/function

 

This phone is aesthetically pleasing, user-friendly, and resilient. The screen size is easy to read (and customizable), and it's great for videos too. Very functional & works with the Galaxy sport watch.

Excellent phone!!!

 

Still learning how to use it, but so far, I totally love this phone. I like that I actually bought the phone and am buying cards for it. For my purposes, it's the perfect phone.
