Truth is s3 good o. Strong, nice design and sharp camera. But once it is up a year. It lags badly!! As in so badly, Samsung phones all they lag!!!!

If I was in your location would have helped you tweak your m3 so it stops lagging. And also you should unistall apps you are not using and keep your home screen free of unnecessary apps and also widgets. Remember na chinko if u av any special effects you put on it, remove it.!

3 years

I also bought note 1 after wards , after a year it started lagging. Then sold it got new note 2, the same problem Samsung system no smooth

If you want a phone that doesn't lag go for HTC. But buy it NEW one.

Now i am using tecno c8 and after much upgrading and tweaking. It's the most stable phone I have ever used
No single lag .

Tweaked lots of people's c8 and they never regretted using c8.

With all this your comment shows you have not handled a Samsung phone in your life. Note 2 and S3 are same only difference is size. I have used S3 mini and my friend had used a S3 UK used and it runs smooth as he'll better than those crappie junks chinco manufacturer churning out.

I have used a note 10.1 2012 and no lagging whether fifa, need for Speed, or any other high end games.

I currently use a note 2 T-mobile T899 with custom rom , the only tweak Samsung can't do is change of imei but who needs that with all the cheap data. Stop spreading rumors of lagging my note 2 has 2gig actual ram not the 2gig chinco phones would put and it will start lagging

Don't know where all these claims that Samsung phones ALL lag is coming from,I've used a Galaxy Note 2 and am currently using a Note 3,it is certainly not lagging any more or less than other Android devices from other OEMs I've used..
So in other words according to you,a Tecno C8 is more stable than the best Samsung has to offer?

I love the s3 display. The amoled, lightness, but I won't advice u to buy it.
Reasons:
1. Poor battery (u will end up regretting this)
2. Old GPU (mali-400), not good for games

Nah bro, only one i fit advise you to buy is HTC, what I was using before, HTC m8, runs very smoothly, didn't tweak anything on that.

And please someone here posted that he has Samsung running "custom ROM" don't mind them. They can't use the hone properly without tweaking.


Or better still bruh, you can get iPhone 5. Used it before
Its very smooth with no significant lag only thing be say battery...

See this one spewing trash again. On stock rom, the note two can't pass jelly bean 4.2 also note it has To mobile UI the reason I installed custom rom ezkat 4.4 was to get it upgraded to kitkat. Do your research well.

Old Samsung, LG and HTC high end phones still hold their ground even after several better ones.

Where is your canon C8 today, in the trash, where is the phantom A, in the dustbin a Samsung galaxy S2 still commands respect till today

Calm down he said the truth... Samsung 2016 is different from Samsung 2013...

A friend sold his Samsung note when it became practically useless... It lags like when he want to make call he had to open phone then wait for sometime...

Op... Please don't buy any phone older than early 2015....

I am running custom rom ezkat 4.4 and I know people running Android 6.01 custom rom on the same old note 2.

The issue with branded android phones is you first need to unlock the bootloader affixed by the carrier, after unlocking that, you can install any custom rom you choose, Samsung has several stable custom rom builds you can download easily and this roms always have support go to xda developer site and see for your self

I have never used the chinco android phones not because am too proud but I have never had opportunity to buy them,but not withstanding I can buy and use it. My main point is for people to stop hating phones or being partial to a particular manufacturer or brand.

HTC was a rubbish manufacturer with their inbuilt battery phones that hangs, a friend of mine bought their HTC one X then it didn't use 2 months it crashed slot had to give him a total different one, I guess that particular model had issues a lot of people returned it. But as at 2014 ,what HTC was churning out, Samsung is a learner beside it.

Out of all the android phones, the master is still Sony, better a zillion times than Samsung. Has manufacturer support for a long time, I may not have used all this phones but I have family members and Friends who have. I am a supporter of good phones not manufacturer whether it was made by xengchu or yokomani as long as it does what the manufacturer says about it

My note was made in 2012 the international version is N7100 I play high end games and I have never had to restart it due to lagging or hanging at anytime, Infact there is a virus on it now and it has not affected it's performance. Mine is the T mobile version but the rom on it was based on the AT&T version reason for the model number I317 instead of T899.

It still as solidly build as any phone out there
