The S3 is a phone mediocre, the specs looks very good, but actually the performance is below my previous phones. The quality of the materials is below the average, the plastics painting is very weak. The wifi problem is worst very day, if you are surfing the web and need to make a call the callup time of the phone keypad is toooo long. No more samsung for me,

MiltonBD, 25 Dec 2013You root your phone, so update is not work. Which place u live? if ur living in india download firmware from samfirmware,if u have i9300 u select INS firmware from list,because in india there are two firmware which are INU and INS,we should install INS for indian version, dont know why INU is included,if u install INU ther wil be no problem but u wont get udpates from samsung through OTA.

My first smartphone was a Samsung Galaxy S1,i had it for 2 years then i sold it, my second was an Acer S500, very stable, very responsive but with a few drawbacks, now i bought a white galaxy S3. I remembered how good of a quality was my first galaxy build but the S3 looks like a cheap reproduction of a phone. The edge silver lining has edges from the mold, it scratched a little, i do not know how because i was very careful and the plastic underneath it is black. I dropped my s1 a few times and all i got ware some fine cracks in the surface layer of the silver ornament on the corners, and it was all silver, i did not see any other colour. Second, the back case is so poor quality that it has fine scratches on it's surface, i repeat, i did not expose my phone to sharp or scratching objects and if someone says to buy a case for it don't waste your time because a phone like this is not bought to buy a case for it. As software wise, it is ok, except for the lag when i press the home or power button. And sometimes doing other stuff. This is not acceptable for a top of the line smartphone(or was last year). The Acer S500 is much cheaper but it was running infinitely smoother that S3 on a dual core Krait 1.5Ghz CPU. I have the phone close to a month now and i am disappointed of it. I could have gone for a nokia 920 or 925 for minus or plus the same price. I do not know how the S4 is but the s3 that i have is not on par with it's reputation. I am running android 4.1.2, it says it is the latest firmware. I ain't going to brag about the good parts because the negative ones made me forget about them.
