I ve had this phone for almost a year now.At First it was awesome - very fast reponsive and ok battery. Then I did JB upgrade.Now battery sucks phone freezes for no just cause.screen has broken twice ( still broken) .first broke after 2 week's use.i tried replacing the broken screen again and was told by Samsung that it would cost more than half the price of a new gs3 .comon this after a year of the phones release. I have tried everything but phone is crap. Quite very slow and battery can drop by almost 20 percent with 1 hour of 3G browsing. Phone is now very slow. The fake metal paint job on the bezel has started peeling off even though it's in a ballistic case.
My advice , stay away from this phone or gs4 .Dont mind all the crap about smart stay , direct call etc .They dont always work and are mere gimmicks. Dont let Samsung fool you A gs4 should have been a natural upgrade for me but I think I am going for HTC ONE. Samsung just makes crappy phones and packs them with a lot of useless gimmicky features to fool folks.there is nothing premium about their phones DONT BE FOOLED! !!!
After update my display had turned to pink while Chating.
I didnt even get warrenty for the same.
Suddenly display was gone hate Samsung.

Not all USB leads act the same. I use an Anker car charger and this is what the instructions state....
'Unlike Apple products, some Android phones will enter into USB data sync mode and charge at only half the speed (500mAh) when it detects the D+/D- pins of non-OEM chargers. To address this conflict, the micro USB power wire of the Anker car charger adopts a unique circuit design to properly set the D+/D- pins and signal the Android device to charge at the full AC charging mode (1000mAh or higher) to charge products at full speed'.
So there you have it.
I activated the talk function on my phone and it de-activated the touch-screen function. How do I maneuver around the phone?
