The guys in my local Telstra store told me they couldn't do anything about the sudden death my phone had experienced, even though they acknowledged that the problem was in fact the main board. Apparently because the screen has a 10mm crack in the top left hand corner the warranty is void for any and all future problems regardless of whether its a known issue.
The last time I called them about a problem with my S3 ejecting the micro SD card over and over they told me it was a problem for Samsung to fix and to call them instead. Id only had the phone for about eight weeks at this point.
Apple replaced my last faulty phone on the spot. No questions asked. Now that is service. The grass isn't always greener on the other side.
My s3 experienced sudden death after a short call one afternoon. I've always had iPhones since they came out apart from 2 galaxy s's I had the s2 which went faulty and I ended up back with apple. Now I have a dead samsung s3. I'll leave you to work out the rest! Once a phone shop for car phones, not to mention brands, have fixed this s3 it will be going straight on an online auction. Samsung a have failed me too many times. At least iPhones get swapped straight away. Top quality top after sales service.
After 5 months used my S3 and now sudden death.... not a really good of quality this mobile phone....

Similarly like a Television, I give a damn about who invented it. Only thing that interest me now is how it has evolved into an LED or 3D display. Its more like a phenomenon, call it market growth or product evolution.
I hate to be judgmental but advent of iphone 5 marked a black spot on the clean sheet of apple's history. If this is what people call innovation, I would definitely save myself from the trouble of being sorry for wasting my hard earned cash.
You must be living on another planet. They have been dominant for years already now.

And if you talking about software Apple in this field since late 70's Samsung it's hardware electronic factory not software. Yes I do I agree Samsung made the first color screen on phone but Apple introduced the new phone era and other copied to be honest.
PS. Actually Apple preparing for something new with the upcoming new iPhone 6!

We are comparing the features on the iphone and the galaxy s3 and you throw in nokia? So what if they copied Nokia. The overall product from samsung is stil better. YOu think iphone didn't copy features from the galaxy s3 also? Galaxy s3 trumps iphone anyday overall. Iphone is now on their way out. Apple had a good run but now it's time for a new leader in the smartphone biz.

Remember what Samsung called smartphone yesteryears, its symbian and windows
IPhone expensive yes but Apple offer quality unlike Samsung. And for the samfan that mentioned that S3 has a lot of feature unlike iPhone let me explain you some feature that Samsung copied from Nokia! Yes Nokia
- Download apps wireless through PC through play store already out since 2008 on Nokia 5800 you can download apps through ovi store through PC I used to do it when I had 5800.
- make the phone silent by turning the phone already had it on my dated Nokia e66!
I'm not even a Nokia fan anymore but Samsung didn't invent something new and if you wonder how S3 faster than any Android phone don't forget that Samsung manufacture Apple iPhone/iPad/iPod chip set so they knows exactly what Apple product chip set architecture and use the same architecture with more powerful boost.
