I've made it through one third of the 30-day Samsung Galaxy S III Challenge, and so far, so good.  There are a ton of software features that I really like about this device, many of which I detail in the video.  Tap-to-top, the built-in battery percentage indicator, and one-click access to the camera from the lockscreen are a few of the features I've found myself using every day.  The only issue I've found is that the earpiece is slightly low, though it could be my particular unit.  When other models arrive, I'll put it to the test.  Overall, it's a great Android smartphone. 10 days in, 20 days to go.  Stay tuned for more!

Bonnie Newnam Peters I'd really like to hear how the talk quality is. Current phone - verizon ally - has horrible talk quality. I can't have a conversation unless on speaker or bluetooth. I don't want to get into a new phone and have the same problems.

John Moreno if you havent bought the nexus yet just wait for the SIII... the only thing the nexus has going for it is stock android, and ill bet anything the cyanogen team will have a stock rom up and running on it before mid july and theyll keep supporting this phone for the next 2 years at least

Nick White
Nick White Pre-ordered my Samsung Galaxy SIII 32GB Pebble Blue version yesterday. So ready to ditch this Bionic hahaha. Its gonna be weird for me to switch makers since I know the Motorola phones in and out dating back to my Droid 1, and Droid X. Just wish they wouldn't have jipped us on the cpu but the S4 should be fine. Hell anything is better than the Bionic at this point hahaha.
