This is the same thing that used to happen with galaxy R phones and those idiots at samsung just stopped producing the phone instead of a fix.
I hope they can still revive my S3 who died a few days ago. It's a 16gb and with me for only eight months. The symptoms are exactly as stated. After a reboot it just died.
I really dont understand this forum whatsoever, this article seems to be about some software problem (thus they will issue a fix soon). Not the build quality of the phone. so why all the arguement about the material the phone uses.
Besides, correct me if im wrong, the same "cheap" plastic used on the GS3 is the same plastic used on the One X, and Lumia 920..... Just different build, but same material
The term "CHEAP PLASTIC" is reserved only for Crappy Samsung Products.
It should not be used on any other device.
Even small brands like Micromax have a more premuim feel than Crapsung products. (almost) hehe...
Babsmith, 03 Jan 2013http://www.xpango.com?ref=92326784What about the link sir/mam??? i cant play it.. :)
Hmmm, hope its not some weird jinx plaguing S III. Good to know though, I'll be ready if / when my S III dies - touch wood.
This is the reason i will NEVER buy a samsung phone. Samsung is pure garbage. The phones are not strong, the screen breaks even with gorilla glass 2, and now to top it off the gs3 'dies'. What nonsense is this? Yet the phone is very expensive!
I tell you if not for android samsung mobile would have been totally irrelevant. The phones have ZERO QUALITY.
This is way worst problem any smartphone can have.
JackTheRipper, 03 Jan 2013I'm 100% sure you can't buy S3 you only buy Nokia because its so cheap. Because Samsung don't ... moreI'm 100% sure you don't know anything about my financial status. No power button? I guess GSM Arena posted a picture as delusional as a Samsung fanboy then.
If you can't find the power button, it's probably because it fell off. Samsung fanboys always make the funniest comments. **in case you can't figure it out, it's funny because the comments are stupid**
JackTheRipper, 03 Jan 2013I don't trust any video made by Nokia or Nokia fanboys. Once faker always faker. Then we dont trust you either on your S3 stuff..lol..even Ip5 beats the crap out of S3, poor device.. I wonder what is good build quality for you?? Brittle-Cheap plastic i guess????? :)
ObserverPh, 03 Jan 2013So nowadays cheap plastic can hammer a nail??????????? :)I don't trust any video made by Nokia or Nokia fanboys.
Once faker always faker.
Anonymous, 03 Jan 2013Hey Samsung, while you're at it, fix the flimsy power button that falls off sometimes. "... moreI'm 100% sure you can't buy S3 you only buy Nokia because its so cheap. Because Samsung don't have power button its only in primitive phones like Nokia "Cheap plastic".
So Lumia 920 has a problem with its power button?
I have a problem and itz my missed call it always show 2 miss call when i enter the call list it does not go it always show 2 nmbr miss call pls fix my problem
Hey Samsung, while you're at it, fix the flimsy power button that falls off sometimes. "samsung quality" what a joke.
Mike Lim, 03 Jan 2013At least it is still better than the iPhone 5. Boring iOS and hopeless Apple Mapsalthough am a android user i rather have a boring OS and crappy map any day than to have a phone that can suddenly brick on me so stop ur trolling.
