    What don't you like about this amazing phone?

    No phone is flawless, so what are the flaw of this one?

    Bluetooth - when connected to audio out does not work properly.
    USB - no in car audio streaming, which makes me use the audio out in the first place.
    Keyboard - none as good as iPhone. Swiftkey 3 not bad.
    Email - can't find an email app as good as iPhone. Tried several including k9, gmail, stock and inomail.

    Otherwise I really like it and am happy with my decision to go with it.

    It can't do a table dance, and the Wi-Fi occasionally disconnecting...but I still prefer the table dance with that Big Beautiful screen and perky widgets...

    Bugs. Non-functioning calendar reminder, haptic feedback setting doesn't stick, LED doesn't work properly, "the folder is open" announcement with talk back off, MMS issue ("file type not supported"), awful stock browser... To name a few. Also, it is not nearly as fluid as I expected, for example, when opening a text thread it stutters. That said, I'm not trying to bash. There are many aspects of the phone I do really like. Third android phone. Love the OS. A little frustrated with it at the moment, though.

    -Touchwhiz and its's gingerbread-esque folders and menu look.
    -Email client has issues with 3rd party keyboards (been an issue sinec the GS2)
    -Physical buttons - still would have preferred samsung follow google design guidelines and gone with virtual buttons.
    -Bluetooth MAP profile does not play nice with 2010 MyLincoln touch system for text message support or sogn/artist names with Music (may be a limitation on Microsoft Sync though)
    -Samsung antenna's still have some range issues with wifi and cell strength

    Aside from that I love the hardware. Screen, while a little oversaturated and not as birght as I would like when outside, is still fantastic overall. Despite what some others have said the phone is well put together. I love the lightness compared to HTC, motorola or apple devices. weight does not equal good construction quality. yes the back is plastic, but there is no give to the plastic anywhere and it just feel like a solid device. Plus it is more comfortable in the hand than any recent apple/motorola device and on par with the OneX if not a little better in my opinion.

    My year old Bionic had better call reception. Never dropped one call on the Bionic. On this sgs3 every other call gets dropped at some point.

    lol i thought the back button at wrong side would bother me but it took like a couple days to get used to it. im right handed though lol but i tend to use both thumbs. they should really have made a setting to swap them since its just software

    After almost a month my gripes:

    -App icons stutter sometimes when you return to the home screen (Touchwiz issue)
    -Wish the web browser was as fast as my iPad 3 (but it's not fair to compare it to a tablet)
    -None of the Android e-mail apps are as elegant looking as iOS

    I'm hoping the first too get better with the Jelly Bean update. I can live with the third one.

    Nope, none of the (available) third party e-mail or web browsers address my complaints. The app stutter is a Touchwiz issue so you'd need to flash a different ROM to get rid of it.

    What don't I like?

    The screen doesn't like bright sunlight. At all.

    Otherwise no real complaints from me.

    IBOLT car dock solves the bluetooth/audio issue, and more specifically, the cord that comes with it. It's a usb cord that also plugs into the aux port.

    I wish there was more granular control over the led indicator - I'd like to be able to automate times for it to be on or off. Also, I don't like the physical home button and I wish it were capacitive. Otherwise, the phone is really awesome.

    S voice is a pain in the butt, and I can't reliably use hands-free dialing in the car.

    Oh, and I wish the Samsung gestures worked more universally. The double tap to scroll up thing would be awesome if it was usable.

    Screen is def not gorilla glass. Both my previous HTC phone i used totally not a single blemish on the screen. On the S3 i got a pretty bad scratch that made it look like it was always a wet spot. I never put the screen in pocket with anything else in it, its pretty weak. Phone charging port luckily went bad so i tried to scratch with butter knife and scratched easily, then tried my old htc evo and evo 3d and could not get to scratch! SO, looks like i will have to get screen protector for new phone which i hate!
