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."

AnonD-89661, 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.
AnonD-252, 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
AnonD-85186, 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
AnonD-17633, 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!
AnonD-80043, 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!
AnonD-85186, 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....
AnonD-80043, 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

AnonD-80043, 16 Dec 2012Will 16GB be enough for a lot of apps and HD Games?Yes if u won't put mp3 and videos there and duplicate backups
Between the Galaxy S2 and S3 which is really better in terms of Hardware and the overall make? I have noticed that the speakers, rear speakers on the Galaxy S3 are tad soft and lower in volume than the S3. Can users who have used both the handsets kindly comment on the same?
AnonD-17633, 16 Dec 2012Wich one is the Best iphone4s/5 OR Samsung Galaxy SIII?None of your mentioned. U should just use a calling card to make calls from a public phone.
