    Hi all

    My line of work requires that I read a lot of pdfs. My primary device is an Ipad 4. I am in the market for a phone to replace my lumia 710. The s3 is within my budget (unlocked, outright purchase). I remember reading an article which made it sound like amoled displays might produce fuzzy/blurry text. Is this the case? If I do buy this phone I do not plan on rooting or putting custom roms to modify hardware settings.

    I am drawn to s3 for its expandable memory, optimum screen size and replicable battery and the android os.

    Your help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

    Most of the blurry reports are a little misled. Most of the blurriness that can be seen is with a magnifying glass. I have no problems reading any kind of text and any size font on my S3.

    I read a lot of pdf's on my S3 and have no issue. The only issue I have with this device is not being able to see the screen very well in the sun. Other than that, great device.

    I don't have an issue reading text. But if your PDF's are technical documents, which images, drawings, flowcharts, etc., you may find it hard to see those without a lot of scrolling around.

    Exactly why I recommend a Galaxy Note 1 or 2
