Just posted a review of the S3 on phonescoop.
Nice phone, lots of top notch, first class hardware and software, Voice quality, excellent. Ergonomics... fine!
However... phone is going back tomorrow. The screen contrast and brightness in the browser and e-mail programs, LOUSY!
Dull, muted, cloudy... does not have the brightness and sharpness as in the other parts of the phone.
Reviewed the settings, power savers, et al with both VZ and Samsung tech's and they could not change the muted screen.
Samsung asked me to go back to the store and compare with other S3's and same thing... poor screen quality in browser and e-mail.
Real shame... as this could be an excellent phone. Might be for some ... and there might be a Samsung fix.
However, I've read on the earlier European reviews that the screen's brightness in certain settings are not crisp and clear like one would expect from Samsung screens.
Good luck to you all... back to the X2 for the time being for me.
