A lot of problems with thw power switch sensitivity. Is ultra-sensible and turnf off by itself and takes 10 mins in self restarts to turn on again....

This phone is one of the best that there is today! Highly recommended! Design, form factor, and screen size are the ones I mostly like. You can check this out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aaCg900NV2U

For those who condemn the design. Please don't buy the S3. Don't even try to handle it. Let the others who really want it, get it and love it. i got mine for 3 months now and it's the best smartphone i've ever had. S3 hits 10 million units worldwide in less than 2 months. That says a lot to you haters, the minority!

CHECK YOUR SCREEN FOR INK-MARKS! The easiest way to tell is by downloading a black picture and viewing it in a dark room. Five of the seven galaxyS3's I've done this with have permanent, dark smears against a black background.

I used the same black gif for all tests and got my hands on so many phones by having two lines, making a remorse period exchange, finding two coworkers with them, and a helpful att store employee who unlatched their floor-model for me to check in the dark (floor model had poor/grey blacks, but no ink spots).

I went in to the shop to try this one out. In my opinion it is to big for a phone, you can´t use one hand to send messeges walking down the street and it is to big for your pocket. And I don´t use ha handbag.

Then I compared the speed of the startscreens with a swiping finger. It felt kinde of slow. They had an NOKIA Lumia 800 beside this one. I really got surprised when the new Samsung Galaxy S3 got snatched buy the old NOKIA Lumia 800.

I also didn´t like the plastic feeling in this phone, I mean why have a plasic upstanding bottom on it? It´s not a phone I would use.
