If it dies get another phone is my answer. My girlfriend is coming to the end of her contract.......she says her data plan is so good that all she wants to do is renwew the contract. I have explained to her a few times and today that she can get a brand new phone for the same price as the contract she's on, and if her current one breaks etc she has a spare, and also she could just sell the new one boxed and pay almost for the whole cost of her then new 24month sim card.

If you like to watch movies then the Nexus 4 is very limited (8/16Gb) for that because it doesn't have a micro SD card slot, nor does it support OTG; both of which the S3 does.
I have a 64Gb Flash drive with about 40 films on it which keeps my grandaughter quiet on short journeys when it is connected to my S3 with a OTG adaptor.

And I am using XXEMB1 firmware which is based on official Android 4.1.2 version. but now I am using 4.2.2 Android version 'cause my ROM is based on that Android version and plus it's based on CM 10.1 version which has SDS fix (not sure about newest CM 10.2 version)
And I have also latest ClockWorkMod version which has included SDS fix, as I've read that I can feel about 90% safe, and all firmwares based from Android 4.1.2 are safe.
Of course I think there is always a risk to SDS because it's depends on how much your phone was used before until Android 4.1.2 version update, I have used it for two months before (because there wasn't 4.1.2 update then) and as I've read that it's depends how much memory blocks are damaged by EMMC problem, as much blocks damaged as bigger chance to SDS (but of course I can't to confirm that yet) And this information can be useful for more people too.

S3 has option for internet calling, but what is the procedure for inrerner calling.?
I like watching movies in my phone and taking pictures and i like to socialize with other people and i would like a fast phone that can also perform HD Games and also updated in the version. So im stuck at Samsung galaxy S3 Or LG Nexus 4? Please Help me.

"It appears that if you are stock, unrooted, and have updated to the latest firmware you should be fine. If you're rooted and running a non-stock kernel, you'll need to make sure that kernel is safe, or switch to one that is".
...i expect you know tbis...otherwise the advice given below was to speak to the dev of the rom etc.

You can also walk out of your house tomorrow and be knocked down by a truck. So could I, but I don't think about it.
I'm an optimist - An optimist is a person with a positive outlook on life. To me, the glass is always half full.
You are a pessimist - A pessimist is a person who anticipates the worst things in life. To you, the glass is always half empty.
Don't waste your life worrying, enjoy it.

And for how much time you're using your phone with INSANE CHIP?
