ThomasCarlsson, 16 Dec 2012I use "Nove launcher", it is very good and does not lag.tx
[deleted post]you are such a joke. you said you got this phone yesterday and the battery drains so fast.
so in one day, you did multiple full charge and discharge, that all new batterys need to get optimum performance. ...
yes that really says a lot about you.
you don't give children cars to drive because they are not mentally ready for that.
well you are not ready for an android phone, I don't even thing you are ready to operate an iPhone.
[deleted post]Android does not drain battery and does not lag, and there is no "need" to root any Android! S3 have just as good batterylife as iPhone 5 http://www.gsmarena.com/iphone_5_vs_galaxy_s_iii-review-837p4.php !
Even iOS can be jailbroken/rooted!
did you bought this phone for ROOTING risk? what if is not working? tsk tsk
About rooting and warranty:
"So, we finally come to the question of rooting, flashing and changing the software. Unless the seller can prove that modifying the software, rooting your device or flashing it with some other OS or firmware was the cause for the defect, you are still covered for defects during those 2 years. A good test to see if it is the software’s fault is to flash it back with stock firmware/OS and see if the problem persists. If it does, it is not a software-caused problem. If it is not possible to revert it stock software any more, it is also not a software-caused defect. There are very few hardware defects that are caused by software — e.g. overriding the speaker volume above the safe level could blow the speaker.
Many manufacturers of consumer devices write into their warranties a paragraph that by changing the software or “rooting” your device, you void the warranty. You have to understand that in EU we have a “statutory warranty”, which is compulsory that the seller must offer by law (Directive 1999/44/CE, §7.1) and a “voluntary warranty” which the seller or manufacturer can, but does not need to, offer as an additional service to the consumer. Usually the “voluntary warranty” covers a longer period of time or additional accidents not covered by law6. If though the seller, the manufacturer or anyone else offers a “voluntary warranty”, he is bound to it as well!
So, even if, by any chance your “voluntary warranty” got voided, by European law, you should still have the 2 year “compulsory warranty” as it is described in the Directive and which is the topic of this article."

sabahan, 15 Dec 2012Which one better s3 or note 2? I like both if this phone. I choose only one of them.It is smart.And I like it much.All android lovers should buy it.
ThomasCarlsson, 16 Dec 2012I have 16 Gb plus a 64 Gb external micro sd-card and I use "GL to Sd" version 1.9.3 ... moreI wouldn't mind if i rooted however i don't feel like rooting with the warranty still on just in case it breaks or something while on stock
achin india, 16 Dec 2012no ....the games are of 2gb size........ If u r a gaming fan then go for 32gb model......i mys... moreWhoa didn't know they would be 2gb ish, thought they wouldve been around 100mb-1gb. Thanks for your reply i think i'll try find a 32gb
isaurisperez, 16 Dec 2012Wich one is the Best iphone4s/5 OR Samsung Galaxy SIII?If you do not like S3 then there are many good Android alternatives, so there is no need to choose iPhone or even worse to choose a WP8!
ifrit723, 16 Dec 2012Will 16GB be enough for a lot of apps and HD Games?I have 16 Gb plus a 64 Gb external micro sd-card and I use "GL to Sd" version 1.9.3 to move evertything from the internal folders Android and data and Gameloft to the external sd-card, but "directory bind" can do the same thing! But if you can find a 32 Gb S3 it would be a lot easier. I like Android because most "problems" can be fixed!
achin india, 16 Dec 2012has anyone used nova launcher.... Is it good....n does it cause lagging....I use "Nove launcher", it is very good and does not lag.
[deleted post]YOU are the "liar" because S3 does definetly not lag on Jelly Bean! Just do a factory reset and any "lag" will be gone! If you root, it is easy and riskfree if you can read simple instructions and does not void any warranty because it is just as easy to unroot..., then you can install the app "Rescan Media Root" to turn off the mediascanner to make the batterylife even longer!
Why are you Nokiafans and iPhonefans so desperate that you have to lie about having a Samsung phone?
best cell fone ever by samsung... only complaint is desktop wallpaper setting and battery timing is not much efficient...other than that best of all
has anyone used nova launcher.... Is it good....n does it cause lagging....
ifrit723, 16 Dec 2012Will 16GB be enough for a lot of apps and HD Games?no ....the games are of 2gb size........ If u r a gaming fan then go for 32gb model......i myself choosed it also
