I've been wanting a replacement for my Lg Rumor 2 for a while now, and I've been eying the samsung galaxy s3, and am curious as to what you guys think of it, what it's like, how long the battery lasts. Etc. I don't plan to use it for anything fancy. Just Facebook and Texting. Thanks, in advance!

my dad and brother each have one. both of them get great battery life. my dad got an extended battery on ebay and he can still be at 55% after a full day of regular usage. my brother has the stock battery and is left with 70+% but he isnt using data and texting and that sort of stuff all day.
from playing with them i would definitely recommended it

I touched one with my finger once and it shattered and died. That's how shoddily they're built. Go Motorola.

I have an S2 and I love it so the S3 must be better. I see everyone with them and they look great. But that phone wasn't built for texting and fb. It was built for everything. Get a qwerty keyboard and touch screen if you want texting and fb

The s3 is awesome. Highly recommend it. The battery lasts me all day. Just plug it in before you go to bed.

I've got the first Galaxy Note and its damn awesome (first true smartphone I've had though, so basing this off those cheap smart-"gophones" or whatever).

Its great for people with big hands since the screen's so big, and I've never had problems with fitting it in my pocket since its pretty thin.

Getting an S3 for FB and texting is like buying a Lamborghini for grocery shopping.

I have one, it took me a while to get used to Samsung's adaptation of the android software.

And Samsung's stock keyboard is shit.

If you get the S3, get the Swiftkey 3 keyboard. You'll have to pay a few bucks but it's totally worth it.

Once I put that in, most of my complaints about the phone vanished.

I got one. I don't have any complaints about it. It's fast, screen is nice, battery life is long.

Only problem is I shattered the screen like a week after I got it

still works though, idc

All I can say is that even if you don't plan on using it for anything fancy, in time you will find yourself using it for something fancy.
Never imagine yourself not to be otherwise than what it might appear to others that what you were or might have been was not otherwise than what you had been would have appeared to them to be otherwise

Facebook and texting?
You know phones at like 1/5 of the price do both of those well?

But the S3 is an awesome phone.

The S3 is huge. The size of that phone annoys me as it can barely fit in my pocket.

Getting one for myself for Christmas. I know there's phones with better software now, but at least the s3 is going to be supported for a long time, which can't be said for my current HTC Incredible which like periodically erases songs off my memory card and uses an internet browser called "Internet"
