Now...since ... more@ Jacq
Sometimes when you perform an upgrade, a few files from the last install get left in the Cache folder. You can try cleaning it out as follows:
Turn your phone off and wait 15 seconds. Restart your phone in Recovery mode. You do this by holding down VOL UP, then the HOME button, and finally the Power button. Hold them down until the Samsung logo appears and then release. The Android robot appears and the phone boots into Recovery mode.
On the menu that appears, use the Vol Up/Down button to choose the 5th option 'wipe cache partition', and press the Power button. The phone will wipe the cache partition (may take a while).
You will then go back into the main menu, and it will be set on 'reboot system now'. Press the Power button and the phone will restart. It may take a little longer than usual because the cache is clean.
Your phone may be a bit slower at first because the cache folder is empty, by it will get faster as you use it.
Cleaning the cache does not harm your phone or change any settings.
raag, 05 Apr 2013no USB on the go support
not even TV out?? wasteactually there is a TV out..its the same samsung MHL 2.0 adapter with 11pins that is for S3 and Note2 and this has been confirmed that works smoothly..
about USB on to go,yes its not natively supported,but some people already managed to make it work,so there is a way,you should check out the xda developers site for that...
please read and be informed before u post false information
I own one of these, got it when it was just launched, or a few days later,lol.
Now...since my last update it's been a bit didgy.
Weather app disappears quite often
Apps freezes now and then
Often need to restart
Today, I couldn't open my notification slider.
My set alarm clock goes off for about 2 seconds, as in two seconds. It only goes off properly if I set it with a 5min snooze!
It's quite disappointing, seeing it's a "GALAXY"
I do like this phone, but can at least say I have far less typing errors and spelling mistakes compare to what iPhone has/had!?!
That's the thing about updates, the more you do, the more the phone goes sour! :-(
In the old days, with crappy tech specs in comparison to today, it all worked great and fine and now with advance tech, they all seem to fall apart from mass production.
When was the last time a phone did not let you down...uhmm....Nokia 5110.
[deleted post]Google decided for evil reasons that they did not want us to be able to move apps to sd cards that came from the play store you can move third party apps through my files but not google!
guys tell me is it me or just the demo phone that i saw the pixel edges? its really troubling me certainly on the lighter parts of a picture and it wasn't good for me.......
friends I'm a little bit confused between s3 mini and s advance becoz s3 mini has nfc. I mean nfc is a valuable feature or not.??
plzz tell me..

Thanks a lot for your response, have try to scan through your previous post but... more@ leqpop
I did say in one of my earlier posts that I wouldn't answer that question again, but just for you, and this is the LAST time:
You cannot move apps to your external SD card. This is not a problem with Samsung or your phone. It is a restriction imposed by Google on all versions of Android since Jelly Bean was unveiled.
No, you do not have the option of Multi Task Windows on the S3 mini simply because the processor isn't capable of handling it. The S3 only has a 1 GHz dual-core Cortex-A9, which is too low powered for the task.
Thanks a lot for your response, have try to scan through your previous post but couldn't figure it out. I will appreciate it if you can put me through again.
Also, after you install 4.1.2 on your s3 mini, do you have option for Multi-Window (aka split-screen)? Looking forward for your response. Thanks
