S3 owners please help! While at work I normally recharge my S3 by connecting it to my PC or laptop. A couple of days ago, I noticed that it is no longer charging using either PC or laptop. Can somebody please help me with the solution? Thanks.

srikanth , 22 May 2015After updated to 4.3 in settings developer options gone, and many more settings also disabled tap the build number many times in about phones in settings
still using this with lollipop 5.1.x , though its old, it still rocks the hell out of other phones. its 3 years now, though you need to repair some little things to maintain it such as the power button, the usb port, and even the home button, if you want to use it for another 3 years. if you have one, and still working, try to custom-rom-ed it.

roxy, 11 May 2015Guys plz share ur experience... I want to buy a mobile set with in lumia 735 & galaxy s3..... moreWell.. I suggest Lumia 730 OR 735.
You will get a new (latest) device.
S3 is old device now.
With Lumia you will get LTE and batter battery life, a fresh windows os experience and will be upgraded to win 10.
Settings to speed up device and get maximum performance ( RAM & Battery ) for galaxy S3 :
1- in developer options scroll down to Drowing : select animation is off for ( windows animation scale - transion animation scale - animator duration scale ) .
2- in developer options scroll down to Apps : limit background processes and select 4 processes at most . ***( always repeat this selection after turn on or restart phone ) .
3- in application manager ( turn off ) (disable) bloatware apps and some of services for ( google & samsung ) Because it always running in the background and consuming a lot of battery life and Ram .
4- Not install many apps that consuming battery and Ram like social netwok apps and games ... Only install what you really need .
5- in display Reduce brightness level less than half . ( don't use auto brightness )
6- turn off ( NFC - S Beam - Nearby devices - Screen Mirroring - Motion - Smart Screen - Voice control - Page buddy - Multi windows - Daydeam ) .
7- turned off ( sync ) google account & access to location .
8- Not use live wallpapers.
9- reduce number of pages on home screen ( maximum 3 pages ) .
10- always restart your phone to refresh ram and system .
11- use home button to close apps that running in the background.
12- use power saving mode to reduce battery consumption ( limit cpu speed ).
13- if you faced any problem in your phone use recovery mode , select wipe cash partition then reboot it again .
14- If your battery has become old. it's better to buy a new one ( original ).
15- always use the original charger and battery for S3 and don't ever use ( non- original ).
16- Use ( Greenify application ) to close apps that running in the background it's very useful.
For Extremist battery saving mode :
1- use black wallpaper background in home and lock screens .
2- Not use vibrations in ( call - ringtons - notifications ) .
3- Not use sounds in ( dailing keypad - touch screen - lock and unlock screen ) .
4- Turn off touch key light .
5- Set screen timeout 15 seconds .

Guys, calm down. Whoever is not satisfied by the performance of their GS3. Please update your phone to lollypop 5.1.1 using this ROM:
Believe me, this ROM is supersmooth, stable(can be used as daily driver) and battery backup is also good. I am getting free RAM of approx. 277MB almost everytime. I am a hardcore user and i normally dont suggest people. But this ROM is too good and so i wanted u guys also to feel it.
CONDITIONS APPLIED: Do a clean flash. Wipe cache, Dalvic cache and do a factory reset and then install this ROM. Else you are bound to face problems and Bugs. Don't complain if u ignore this point.
Hope this helps.
Stay happy :)
Very very BAD. Bluetooth connection do Philips headphones does not work while 5 year old Sony phone works with no problem
Some times the phone opens very slow. Contacts, albums, messages etc. Can I increase the internal RAM?
virgin, 17 May 2015How come it says 50gb of dropbox storage when actually its only 5gb in mine The free Dropbox account can be upgraded up to 50GB for free. There are some things you have to do to bump it up: refer a friend - get more storage, install on more than one device - get more storage. Etc etc. It doesn't start at 50 but I got mine to 50 without much hassle.
