I better buy S3 with sudden death ten times than buying cheap plastic like Lumia 920.
At least the problem is software and solvable with complete replacement unlike 920 which is the problem in whole build quality + OS.

Samsung should make phones that die after the warranty ends. they will sure make more money that way.
