Anonymous, 28 Feb 2013HSPA+ is classes as 3.5g as it cannot attain the speeds of 4g. thanks but what I want to know is.... from anyone that is paying for LTE service right now. (no LTE where i am) what is there actual download speed from there provider, not what LTE can go up to.
you see, what it can do and what you are sold, is not always the same thing.
I just want to know if the speed being sold by providers right now for LTE is faster that what H+ is capable of right now.
because as I said, in some markets around the world H+ is advertised as 4G service. (not a technical thing but a sales team/marking thing.)
Guy I wile back I posted a link to a DIY to make the wireless charger cover for the SIII using the palm touch stone…. Will it has gone commercial for the people that can’t DIY. See link below.

Anyway I don’t like windows phone neither. “O” how I wish they never got rid of Windows Mobile. It also had no dial pad or contacts loading problem and there was countless cool skins for them. (Before some one says something stupid.... that is not the only thing I liked about windows mobile:-)
Windows phone is soo dumb...s3 is the best smartphone of 2012...what if the stock dialpad delays to open u can always download another dialpad from play store & install..can u do that in windows...???
Annonymous, 28 Feb 2013The new samsung galaxy S3 has HSPA+ on box rather than HSPA. Anyone notice this ?? Does it sup... moreThe term G4 is just a marketing term and not a true indication of speed.
LTE is capable of 1gbps download speed. But know service provider comes close to giving you that kind of speed on LTE.
In other markets HSPA+ is sold as 4G that is what I use and get downloads up to 12mbps
Can anyone that is using LTE say what there download speed is?
S3 user, 28 Feb 2013Yes, you are right. We cannot generalise the quality of a particular lens and it varies on dif... moreWhat I was getting at is, the basic points Atahualpa was making are not lies.
The lens is not the only thing responsible for a good quality picture (I know that) other harware and software come into play, am not debating that. I’m not even saying the SIII camera is a crappy cell phone camera.
I just want others to look carefully at what was said and tell me how it is not true.
When you use the digital zoom on the SIII the quality of the picture drops. (Is that a lie?)
Quality drop when you use digital zoom on any camera.
He miss the carls zeiss optics (can any one truly say the lens and only the lens on the SIII is better than a carls zeiss lens?)

iOS is built for one phone only - the iphone.
Android is built for a large variety of phone manufacturers.
Now you know why!

ThomasCarlsson, 27 Feb 2013Carl Zeiss is today nothing more than a brand, and S3 actually takes better pictures than Lumi... moreYes, you are right. We cannot generalise the quality of a particular lens and it varies on different units, almost all lumia phones comes with Carl Zeiss lens now.
I had my galaxy s3 using since one month,happy with it every thing is fine but even having best hardware it is slow as like other Samsung android phones previously i had used.i had seen apple phones of my friends which are quite faster performance than my s3.i think android should work more for fast performance.
I am from India, currently my S3 is running JB 4.1.2, whn can we expect JB 4.1.4 hitting India shore?
Anthony, 27 Feb 2013Nothing Atahualpa said is a lie when you strip it down to the basic points. The plastic dose ... moreI have been using S3 without any case ,never had any issues with plastic body. The camera is excellent and i dont think all carl zeiss lens are better except for high end models.Yes i do agree that it takes 3 to 4 secs to open dialer,but not always.
Great phone with great camera quality. But what disappoint me is the fact that you cannot utilize the whole size of the taken picture as home/lock screen. There's always some kind of frame limiting the picture boundary that can be made as home/lock screen. Truly disappointing.Especially when the picture involve number of peoples who need to unintentionally crop to fit the screen. It's weird though because the pic fits in the gallery but not in the lock screen.

ExDialer is faster than the stock dialer, but for a reason.
Go into ExDialer and... moreI'm just happy to avoid the delay how ever it is done.
I know it doesn't happen all the time but before exdialer it would happen more than once a day, not to mention it would come up in call logs and you would have to pick again for the dial pad.. that was just too much to deal with.
The SIII was my upgrade, from my now 4 year old Htc HD2. And it's sad when a quad core PHONE takes longer to start the dial pad than it took an old single core PHONE to do the same thing.
I own this phone for 2 weeks now. It feels like a great smartphone or phablet so far. Only problem i've observed is it's not as good as (old) Windows mobile when it comes to handling multitasking. When i read a book via Documents to Go and open a webpage via Opera then open something else like music player etc, either Opera or Docs2Go close itself off which means when i open them again, i have to scroll down the pages again to get where i left in the book or open the webpages again in Opera.
I dont know if it's a general Android or application issue... But this is something critical and windows mobile was better handling multitasking.

Go into ExDialer and press the left soft button. Choose Preferences, and then Advanced. Note the top two options... 'Keep in Memory' and 'Hardware Acceleration'. Both of them are ticked ON by default. THAT is why it is faster loading. ExDialer looks nicer, but it is just dressing over the stock dialer.

I agree that the dialpad does take too long to open the first time after a reboot, but ONLY the first time after a reboot, but it is not so long that it is impossible to make phonecalls!
Samsung did have problems with the coating on the earlier models, that is why the blue one was delayed!
