Hi guys, Need your help!
I bought SGS3 box packed just 4 days ago, as of gsmarena, S3 arrived with ICS 4.0.4 pre-installed, isnt it?? But When i unpacked my S3 & checked the OS version, It says 4.1.1??
Can anyone here make me sure that the new stock of SGS3 is coming with 4.1.1 pre-installed or still with 4.0.4?? waiting for the answers!
I'm trying to download the latest firmware update via Samsung Kies through my computer. I repeatedly get "Failed to download" I followed the instructions given, but no luck.
Any advice please?
I read that OTA in the Philippines for 4.1.2 have started. Please post the pda and csc of the firmware version. I got 4.1.2. Poland update. I can't OTA. I hope I can use Odinfor it.Thanks.
i love samsung galaxy s3 this phhone rocks.....every thing is here...though galaxy note 2 i think is much better...but im satistfied on it
To change the volume just use "Root Explorer" to edit "system/etc/default_gain.conf" ! I fixed the sound quality/volume problem with the FM-radio by lowering the volume for the FM-radio headphone out!
I am now back to 4.0.4 because it is faster and more stable than 4.1.2, and I do not really need the "multi view" and there are apps in Google Play that take just as good pictures in low light!

I've seen him drop it thousands of times but it's still in tip-top shape :D Just gotta be careful and I believe screen protectors help, also.
Brilliant phone.Some small hick-ups such as not ringing for no reason and the sms notification does not go away after you read the sms. But all-in-all a good phone.

it has the most fragile screen and it is ridiculously expensive... when the screen breaks (I am not saying "if", because that screen is destined to be broken), it costs more than one third of the actual price...

[deleted post]Ok. The ROM size is correct but it could still be running some things from your old ics.
Please confirm that the information I gave is identical on your phone.

If the motherboard fails you contact Samsung in any contry that is convenient to you, not the seller.
Last day I pick up a s3 for first time, wonderful device its thin and light, and the screen is gorgeous but its laggy and not responsive enough to my finger touch, I tought it was the best smarthphone around but it dissapoint me. Now I dont even consider buy one, It would be a mistake.

There are reporting that SGS3 dying after 150-200 days of use and many thought that something to do with flash memory, something to do with the mainboard itself.Samsung being good on handling the repair even customers had their device rooted and are running custom firmware but they has not acknowledged the problem yet.I hope mine is ok because I bought from oversea store!
