    I am new poster here at DF but long time forum troller.
    Got an S3 coming from a Maxx.
    I find myself switching back to my maxx and feels so much better in hand, I been in constant debate which phone to keep, battery and size makes me switch back to maxx, but camera and screen is an s3 win.

    Do you think the S3 is too big?

    I came from a Droid 3 and then had to use an iPhone 4 for about 6 months. When I bought the S3 it felt a little big at first, but now I am used to it and love it. I can't imagine going to a smaller screen now. It fits in any pocket just as good and it feels lighter than both my previous phones

    After coming from three months on the MAXX, I don't think it's too big at all. In fact, the overall width of the phone in hand is almost the same. It just that on the MAXX, there's quite a bit of bezel along the sides, whereas on the S3, the bezel is minimal along the sides. I think the size feels great in hand.

    This phone feels amazing in hand. I'm a woman, I don't have huge hands, but it fits perfectly. My previous phone was a DX with a silicone case, but even with a case on the S3, the size difference is really very minimal. Now when I hold the DX, it feels too small. Lol...

    Thanks for all the replies, got some reassurance about my purchase now. I'm just really indecisive and been debating between keeping S3 or going back to my maxx.

    Do you have a case on it? I've found that a thin case that is non-slippery makes the phone feel very comfortable in hand.

    Yup have the Incipico case with the 2 parts, rubber inside then the rubberish non slippery outside shell. Very happy with the case, never had a case on my maxx so maybe thats another reason why I keep looking back at it, damn indecisiveness.

    Does it add much bulk and does it attract dust??

    Not at all! It's the perfect size, not slick, absolutely no dust or lint collection. It's an awesome case!

    It's definitely a handful. I came from the Thunderbolt and that phone stretched the limit of what I could reach with my thumb while operating the phone with one hand. The S3 is just plain too big for me to reach the upper part of the screen one-handed. The phone is so slippery that I have to support it with my pinky wrapped around the bottom of the screen, I can't shift the phone around to reach the upper part of the screen without loosing my grip.

    I prefer naked phones but this one has me shopping for a nice, thin, non-slip case.

    Diztronic makes the nicest ones around. A great, thin fit with good protection. I use the black matte version that they make, but some people prefer the glossy version because they find the matte a little slick. Other colors besides black are available as well.

    You'll also find other suggestions for cases in this thread.

    Coming from the Rezound to the S3. I'm a middle age guy with medium sized hands. The Rezound felt better in my hands out of the box. The S3, I'm scared I'm going to drop it. To thin and slippery to hang on to. But, with a good case, I'm sure that will be remedied. Also, until I get my case, I find the S3 difficult to use one-handed. My index and middle fingers rest right on the volume rocker switch causing me some problems. Again, I think a case will help that.

    I came from a maxx to the s3 and I have to say that I think the s3 feels way better in hand then the maxx did. The maxx was too boxy for my taste. Try the Ringke slim case! Not much protection but makes the phone feel great.
