Samsung I9300 Galaxy S III review: S to the third - read the full textToday is no ordinary day for the GSMArena test track, which is about to see the Bugatti Veyron of smartphones do the rounds in an attempt to beat the lap record of its predecessor. Samsung have spared no effort to protect the Galaxy S III against any odds.

"It doesn't look good. This Galaxy S III apparently malfunctioned while in an in-car holster, causing some substantial melting and burn marks across the lower half of the device. The global HSPA+ iteration of Samsung's new flagship apparently sparked into white flames, followed by a bang. While it's certainly not the first smartphone to implode in transit, the damage -- along the base but separate to the charging port -- looks pretty substantial and although the screen still apparently worked, reception was dead. The phone has been whisked off to a repair center through phone retailer Carphone Warehouse for the full autopsy. User dillo2k10 was left unscathed, but it's apparently left some nasty molten plastic remain on the inside of his car. Hit up the gallery link below for some more scorch-marked close-ups.":)

Those who say Android hangs, crashes or fails - are typical noobs at android. If you know how to use the phone(any droid phone) you wouldn't have this problem. You're probably trying to do noobish with the phone. which is why the phone might seem like it's freezing, but in actual fact, the phone just stops responding because its stunned by your stupidity. And Iphone user too, when saying Iphone is better, yes IOS might be better, but dont ever for get the fact of who manufactures your precious phone. Answer? Well that's very simple, it's samsung. The only unique thing about Iphone is IOS, the rest of the phone is made by samsung. *clears throat*

I have had pretty bad droid phones but never once has android OS failed me by hanging or freezing even though I have pushed each phone to it's limits. That being said, I couldn't be happier with my S3. :)

I have not had any issues with my S III on Verizon. No hang ups, handles any job perfectly, and the features described here are just the tip of the iceberg. There are limitless possibilities in what this phone can do. So far saying I'm impressed is an understatement!

Android apps cant be downloaded to pc like apple itunes do . Thats is only minor set back for android . Android still has a long way to go.

GSMArena battery test is somehow unreliable.

it says (in words) that Samsung Galaxy S3 battery last longer than LG Optimus 4X HD. BUT in reality, LG battery last MUCH longer than SGS3.

then i guess true comparison is when we test both phone out by ourself, so we can know for sure. i know coz i did that already.

cheers.

Question - does this phone support micro-SIM only and not the mini-SIM? Because that's a deal killer for me.
