Tell us why you still have your GS3 and why you love it?

I love mine bc for the last 2 years I have beat the crap out of it, with installing Roms, mods, updates, tweaks, and everything I threw at it, and it's still ticking! Great piece of equipment.

I actually feel the same way. I had the itch for a new phone a few weeks back, have played with a Moto X etc.; don't get me wrong there's a lot of really nice, fast phones out there, but after the 4.4.2 update, debloating, and putting some ktoonsez kernel action on my phone, it really flies. I'm not certain a new device would really add that much value to what I already have.

No complaints whatsoever, still performs like a new device. Camera is still solid. Battery gets me through the day (I can usually eke out ~2h of screen-on time and have just under 50% battery left, and this is with the original stock battery than came with the phone).

All around a great device.
If my post helped you, hit the thanks button!

Phone: Samsung Galaxy SIII SPH-L710 flashed to Page Plus
ROM: Stock ND8 Debloated
Kernel: Stock Unsecured

Same here. I'm up for an upgrade but I'm totally happy with the S3. It does everything I want in a phone. Great battery life. The camera is superb. All the apps I want run with no issues. Couldn't be happier with it.

The gs3 was still the top smartphone at the time I bought it, and even 2 years and 2 generations later, i still think it's the top galaxy device. The s3 and s4 vary so slightly that when i updated my rom and debloated it i felt like i had the s4 pretty much. And with the difficulty in just rooting the s5 and the fact that it has a locked bootloader, i am still in no way jealous of any s5 owner (although the dev version is pretty cool). Despite all that, I've also thrown so much software at my device and it still runs great.

My kids have the s5 and n5 and I still love my s3. The n5 is nice but my phone is better than that. I have thrown every tw rom and aosp rom at it in the last almost 3 years and its still awesome. Especially since xPosed was introduced. I'm running SlimKat 6.4 and will stay w SlimKat. I also have a backup s3 who's power button broke on my son. I got him the s5, which is very pretty Btw, and I fixed the power button. Also on SlimKat. Works like new. Ill keep it if mine f's up.
