Samsung Galaxy S3 16GB Blue 3G Unlocked Android GSM Smart Phone with S Voice / Smart Stay / Direct Call (i9300)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - There are no pros big enough to compensate for a phone that only lasts 5 months due to a consistent defect.

- Great phone for the 5 months it works.

Cons: - Phone completely dies after ~5 months due to manufacturing defect in NAND memory. (Search 'Galaxy SIII Sudden Death' to see what I mean).

- Samsung Canada will NOT honour warranty since this is the international model and Canada uses the SGH-i747 model. NO ONE from Samsung will service this phone. BEWARE.

Other Thoughts: This defect apparently only affects the 16GB and 32GB model of the international GT-I9300 phone, so buy the SGH-i747 or other model to avoid the 'sudden death' issue around the 5-month mark.
