still using this with lollipop 5.1.x , though its old, it still rocks the hell out of other phones. its 3 years now, though you need to repair some little things to maintain it such as the power button, the usb port, and even the home button, if you want to use it for another 3 years. if you have one, and still working, try to custom-rom-ed it.

Guys, calm down. Whoever is not satisfied by the performance of their GS3. Please update your phone to lollypop 5.1.1 using this ROM: http://forum.xda-developers.co...2-1-t3066864 Believe me, this ROM is supersmooth, stable(can be used as daily driver) and battery backup is also good. I am getting free RAM of approx. 277MB almost everytime. I am a hardcore user and i normally dont suggest people. But this ROM is too good and so i wanted u guys also to feel it. CONDITIONS APPLIED: Do a clean flash. Wipe cache, Dalvic cache and do a factory reset and then install this ROM. Else you are bound to face problems and Bugs. Don't complain if u ignore this point. Hope this helps. Stay happy :)

> In reply to virgin @ 2015-05-17 05:39 from vj1U - click to readThe free Dropbox account can be upgraded up to 50GB for free. There are some things you have to do to bump it up: refer a friend - get more storage, install on more than one device - get more storage. Etc etc. It doesn't start at 50 but I got mine to 50 without much hassle.

> In reply to roxy @ 2015-05-11 07:41 from X}e3 - click to readThe Galaxy SIII is a great phone, lots of cool features. I have no experience with the nokia phone however, so ill tell you about the SIII. If you are into gaming, this phone might not be for you. You can only play games for like 3-4 hours, but performance is really good. The display is Super AMOLED, which gives the best results colour and contrast. It is more customizable than Windows phones (Nokia). This android device has a lot more applications for whatever your needs. Please dont hesitate to ask any questions you have regarding the SIII.

Undoubtedly it is a very good phone in competitive to recent Grand duos 2 with price and specs. If anybody wants a portable phone and not a humongous screen of course. My S3 supports 4.4.4 beanstalk and runs absolutely smooth and faster than the Jelly bean version but requires root permission.
