Do not buy,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Samsung Galaxy SIII UK SIM-Free Smartphone - Pebble Blue (16GB) (Wireless Phone)
Do not buy this phone. When I initially received it, I was extremely pleased with it. It's very smart and has a big screen; just what I wanted. It's quite powerful and has a good camera. If I had had it a bit longer I would have probably found out it can do a lot more than I thought it could. That's the good bit. I had the phone for 25 days and had been happily using it. On the 25th day, whilst I was on holiday, I gave it a full charge in the morning and took some pictures at lunchtime. 2 hours later I tried to view the pictures and found the phone dead. Nothing I could do would re-start it. I checked on the internet and found that this model phone is plagued by what is described as 'Sudden Death Syndrome'. That is, it will die for no apparent reason, and there is nothing that can be done to bring it back to life. This is happening to this model all over the world. I have sent the phone back and bought an S4. Buyer beware!
