Not had any problems with my S3. Battery life seems to be very good.
The only thing I woulod say is that the camera isn't that good and a bit of a let down, apart from that it's a good phone.
Give the phone a chance people!

For those only seen from paper here, go and play a real S3 device, you will know how impressive they are start from design to it functionality and performance.
It is not a small updates from S2, so far I feel this is the best phone ever did by Samsung.
Never regret pick it up replacing my previous S2. :)

"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."

getting s3 12months contract @ £36 p/m. phone is free. got htc one x, dont really like it. unlock button too far up, got girlie hands so struggle to use it with one hand. any1 find it difficult to use S3 with one hand
I'm using S III from last 1 week. Below are few queries.
1.Though the Phone shows as 100% battery, the moment I plug out, it shows 99%. Why is this happening? Is this only to me or to everyone else?
2.I dont see a Document editor, I see only Polaris viewer. Do we need to buy this software or do we need to download it from any site?
3.When I connect to Kies, it says, "Your device doesnt support software upgrading via kies". What we need to do in this case?
4.Performance is too low and the available RAM is always shows less than 300, even without installing any apps. What needs to be done to improve Performance and Battery backup?
Could you please answer these?
Thanks a lot for the help & time (In advance)in answering all the queries
I got the S3 yesterday, since I owned a iPhone 4S here the comparison:
DESIGN: Galaxy S3 design is stunning, the feeling on hands is incredible. The ergonomics makes all the difference. The iPhone 4S is very squarish and definitely more solid but heavier too (way heavier);
SCREEN: Galaxy S3 screen is wonderful with vivid colours and sharp imaages, 4,8 inches vs 3.5 of the iPhone, after you make the transition you wont never come back, impossible.
OPERATING SYSTEM: S3 usability is a boom. iPhone is good but never at the level of the S3, way way slower.
BATTERY: S3 gets full day + 30% remaining battery, iPhone last till four or five PM;
GPS: Galaxy S3 gets locked in less than 10 seconds inside a building, iPhone searches and searches with no success;
CAMERA: they are very similar, S3 is faster and iPhone is may be a bit better in term of quality. No dramatic difference.
S-VOICE vs SIRI: they are both very basic and more fun than usefull.
USB-BLUETOOTH: iPhone only works with iTunes, no Bluetooth, no radio. Galaxy S3 can be usb-connected to computers and flashmemory, it has easy bluetooth connection and yes ... it has an amazing radio :)
APPS: to be sincere, all relevants apps in iPhones are present in Android. They have better design but they are at payment while in Android are always free. No mayor differences.
Galaxy S3 is an extraordinary good purchase. Recommended for all ex-iPhone users. You wont regret, there is a world outside iTunes :)
Anonymous, 16 Jun 2012maybe in case of considring S2 VS S3 but what i would like to know is generally whats the majo... moreWrong blog for that. Check on XDA developers or just Google it - you'll find plenty of articles.
On a different note -
As an SGS1 & S2 owner, I'm not blown away by the S3. When I first played with the S2 it was like 'Wow! - this is sooo much better than the S1'. Smoother, sooo much more responsive, no lag, more (practical) functionality, slimmer, lighter, more powerful, better display, more advanced hardware...the list goes on. S3 is good, it's just not a leap in the same way.
It's old tech rehashed (see http://blog.gsmarena.com/the-g...ed-on-video/ ), though rehashed well. Whether you think it's design is good or bad, it could be better (thinner, lighter, slimmer bezel, better materials). RGB screen, memory size.... and others.
None are bad, it's just it could..should have been better for the calibre oi device this is meant to be.
One big positive, it's got great software optimisations, something the S2 lacked. It lets the S3 do so much more with the hardware, makes it feel like it has better hardware then it does.
iOS is so smooth because it's optimised for the one device - iPhone. Despite shortcomings (real or preceived) the S3 is one of the first android devices to really do the same. This makes up for a lot.
If Samsung keeps up the optimistaions and learns from the S3 criticisms, then OMG - SGS4 is not going to be leap but a pole vault beyond everything!
