Pros: Responsive, load and use almost any app without major risk easy to use.
Cons: Battery Hog, leave about 10% of memory open. Keep lots of power adapters handy.
The S3 even with extended battery pack can sing and dance but it is definitely a battery hog. Particularly when loaded with applications.
Corporate mail users (Exchange) will find it better to fork out for Touchdown than use the native app. The interaction of contacts and google with exchange can get very complicated.
The beast is a battery hog, keep lots of cables, adapters, car chargers, PC cables handle to top it up as you can.
Try to keep more than 10% of memory free, eg 1.6Gb for 16Gb phone, else its start to struggle. Interaction with Google for cloud backup of data and photo is good.
Apart from the normal social media outlets like Facebook etc. it is great to use some of the other free messaging applications. Line for example will work on both phone and PC with one account and has some cute sticker icons. WhatsApp is very popular but mfg keeps threatening to make you pay.
The unlocked version of the phone is great for traveling, any usable SIM seems to work but must be micro format, a large SIM can be cut down to micro with a blade and works fine.
Setup your heavy data applications to update only on WIFI where you can to limit data use shock that can happen easily with video media.
The modern screen protectors last for years and are worth the investment.
Don't break the gorrila lass, you will be charged the price of a new phone to fix and any warranty will be voided due to "abuse" even for a small fall or break
