Boat browser use text reflow as the HTC browser, and Boat browser is far better than the HTC browser!

As for getting hot. I can't really talk about that as both HTC phones I had before the SII,I I kept in a silicone case. my SIII is also in one so I don't feel the heat. I normally have to look at a gage to know if its above normal.
I don't expect great battery life from any smart phone, the way I use them.
I only dream of the day when that big display also acts as a solar panel :)
Anonymous, 07 Feb 2013I am confused guys whether 2 buy lumia 920 /iphone 5/s3/sony Pls advise truelythey all have different os+different UI (exclude sony)....so its all depend on your need and taste....this is s3 page so people will love to say S3.....but if you have decided to go for S3 then better to wait for SIV otherwise you have other option Lumia 920 or some other
Have my S3 for 4 months all ready. Just perfect. I seen that some users are complaining about the battery life. My S3 keeps 3 days no problem. I had S2 before great phone battery no more then 2 days. And what i can say is that some of my friends moved from iphone to s3

I switched the s3 to a one x+ as I do heavy browsing. Yeah, text reflow really do make reading pages more convenient. Btw, I find that battery life is a little bit longer on the one x+. People say the htc overheats but no, it's the same temperature as s3.

The S3 is a very powerful phone but it can seem a bit daunting when you first use it. The good news is that it is also one of the most user friendly phones around.
Forums like this one are here to help other S3 owners, and any problem you might have we have already seen. Don't worry about asking questions that might seem trivial to you, we've all been there. We are not all 'young techy geeks' either; I'm the same age as you, and I learnt, so fire away!
umm yea so i have done my research and the Galaxy S3 does not have Corning Gorilla Glass 2
Just got my Galaxy s3. Very nice phone. Brilliant screen. Feels very good in hand. Battery life seems to be good. Suggest you all...
