i'm considering buying sony xperia zr or samsung galaxy s3 but kinda confused .. which one should i buy? i really appreciate your opinions .. please help me choosing .. :D
undoubtedly Samsung has done a huge work and gave excellent contribution in the world of smart phone. The best example is Samsung s3, s4, note and note2. The main hardware in smart phone is battery and camera I.e. where s3 is seen weaking. The Samsung should come with good battery life and bring new camera technology like nokia pure view camera. s3 must be with 3000 mah battery rather than 2100 and camera should be like pure view technology. if Samsung could come up with new battery life like 3000 mah for s3 that would be great job. Thank you.

Dasher, 10 Jul 2013Dee™,uk user & speacially anthony need some assistence um tryna buy a s3 for magf?because ... moreS3 is great phone, period. The battery came with the phone not so great 2200 mAh, maybe 2 days normal use but you can get 3000 mAh Samsung extended battery with back cover for around $40 ebay. It's great and will make the phone nice to hold in the hand because the original battery a bit thin

I got it in my hdd now gonna install and will let you know soon.
I'm excited to try out!
UK user, 10 Jul 2013Ok TY. Is it still hold power button on, and volume down (or up)?@ UK user
You turn the phone off completely. Then hold Vol UP + Home and then holding those two buttons down press the Power button until the Samsung logo appears (three button reset). Then release all three buttons and you will see the Android robot appear. After that you will enter Recovery mode. Use the Vol Up/Dn button to select the option you want and press the Power button once.
UK user, 10 Jul 2013Ok. Well when my phone was new, i recall that i turned my phone on and did about 3+ updates b... moreNot every update is a ROM upgrade. Some are ROM patches. If the kernel or Android version is not going to change then you don’t need to clear the cache partition.
If you know the kernel or android version is going to change clearing the cache partition just before, will prevent potential conflicts and you would have no need to do the hard reset.
If you already did the upgrade clearing the cache partition then factory resetting right after would get rid of any conflicts you may have gotten.
B.T.W. I know this by observing what happens when I changed from region to region ROMs in the experimental stage. (Did it in different orders and ways) and to go back to my provider locked ROM I used kies to do the firmware initialisation. Presently I’m using the UK-BTU. What ever BTU stands for.
