can someone please make some suggestion!

basically I recently bought a galaxy s3 which is not rooted and runs the latest 4.3 jelly bean OS.

for 3 weeks the phone was perfect and suddenly it has started to power off and go to GALAXY logo mode, seems like it is shutting down but it can't do so.

I am getting this with no warning while the phone is still ON, and then even if I take the batter out and back in again it wouldn't resolve the issue!.

I managed to do a factor reset, but sadly still the same problem insists, so basically I can manage to get the phone working for 5 minutes, but soon after it goes to this funny mode with Galaxy logo coming on and off, !!

can someone please make some suggestion! I have tried the above and has not resolve the issue..

anyone else had the same problem? how do I solve this?

PLEASE ADVICE

many thanks

I have noticed that the dimensions of the International version are slightly bigger than other versions, meaning that protective covers won't fit unless taking back cover off. Also I have never been able to get S Beam to work :/

Recently I needed to change the screen due to a damage and in the store they told me the spare is incompatible. Is this true that this might take a different screen replacement as well?
(GT-I9300 International version)

I recently change to S3 from S2,
can someone please answer me as I asked before and no one replied!!

basically I have Jellybean 4.3 installed on my S3, the phone is NOT rooted, and I don't know if I should change to ICS? I live in UK, and I connected my phone to Kies and it is telling me my OS is the latest,!

can someone tell me IF I should be upgrading to ICS?
and if so HOW?

The battery is very bad on light use even with the new battery, so really not sure if ICS would improve it.

any suggestions, and views are most welcome

please help me

thanks
