I have been using S3 for the past 3 months without any problems. Updated from ICS to Jelly Bean two days back in India. It was an official release and updated OTA. Since the update, my handset doesn't charge even till 70% , even after after being plugged in with original Samsung Charger/Cable for more than 10 hours.
Please advice .

How much did you pay for it in U.S. conversion?
Suraj, 29 Nov 2012only 11gb available on brand new untouched galaxy s3 16gb version? wtf?Pureview is hardware not software , and wp cannot support more than 12 MP shooters and no full hd. So it would run better than the 808 if Nokia used android

JWill97, 29 Nov 2012What's directory bind? It's not available on Google PlayDirectory bind dose as the name says.
It allows you to bind a similarly name directory on your ext-SD to the one on the internal-SD so when you move files to the ext-SD, the phone thinks it was not moved. its a workaround to not being able to auto move programs to the SD card.
But not a program for idiots because you can screw-up your phone easily with it. Especially the folks that like to remove there SD card or have cheep cards with bad sectors.
Is a 3rd party app you have to download from outside the play-store. And as I have no large apps I have no reason even to try it.
Suraj, 29 Nov 2012only 11gb available on brand new untouched galaxy s3 16gb version? wtf?When you buy and 500gb hard drive and you format it in fat32 do you get the full 500gb after the format?
Then you install the OS and some basic software you still have the entire 500gb available to you as advertised on the box?
You are complaining about losing 5GB. Think before you say WTF.
JWill97, 29 Nov 2012Hey, I just want to ask if some of you know what 'miscellaneous files' means? It takes 3.03gb ... moreYou internal storage has countless files on it. And file that dose not fit into the 3 categories mentioned above miscellaneous is considered miscellaneous because it does not have a category in the list for it to fit into.
Worth buying just awesome the best set ever used sold iphone 5
N toke s3 awesome iphone 5 is a shit cell
Hey, I just want to ask if some of you know what 'miscellaneous files' means? It takes 3.03gb of my storage. What is that?

The Samsung Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note II are two of the brand's hottest selling devices this year, and this has made Samsung smartphone sales look good.

and internal storage really not enough...hope can move app to sdcard...
Hey guys, after updated to JB for about a month I feel like the browser is slower and also in daily use, I noticed more lag compared to ICS. Who has the same problem with me?
Anthony, 28 Nov 2012Hay, I have a Logitech wireless solar keyboard k750 over a year now in the living room
And i... moreIt make sense really. But I think it's impossible for the next 3-5 years. People are still trying to make a flexible display, wireless charging and such. But I think solar charging is a too high expectation for the next few years. I mean okay, calculator, digital watch, and few keyboards already have it. But smartphone is a much more complex thing, so it's not that easy. And it'll be very pricey obviously.
And Apple, they're crazy. They even sued that European fruit market just because they have the similar looking logo with them lol
One week ago I bought s3 & I really like this phone.this is better in all performance,features,battery backup,processor & usability than my old s2.
Today I update it to jellybean in India, Now it even better,battery also work well.
I like Samsung & android they are always creative & one step forward.
Sebastiao, 28 Nov 2012Hey! Tooke me sometime (extra busy week so far), but I hope this finds you well. You know wha... moreIt's actually very simple. Why 1gb ram is a borderline between sufficient and insufficient in s3? it's actually not for gs3 only. For all ICS phones including One X, it's actually the minimum. So why? because ICS need a more ram than GB. In GB, if you clear the ram you'll see it's only around 250-350mb of ram that being used by the system. But in ICS it's always around 400-550, that's the reason why. It's not touchwiz, but ICS itself
