Great new device on the market, however, it's not for me due to all the problems I've been through. The battery life is extremely poor since its needed to compensate for the large screen. To give you all an example-I would literally be at 50% by the time I go to sleep and wake up with the battery DEAD. ((and As a side, I do go into task manager frequently to stop all running apps (even though I only have facebook and my email active)to prevent further drainage of battery life.))
Also, there is a glitch with the internet because whenever I type into the google searchbox, the first word appears and the following words I type in dissapear! This is extrememly frustrating when you need to look up anything!I've had this phone for 4 months now and it already freezes up on me, with messages popping up saying " ...has stopped running unexpectedly." This is entirely my opinion but if you need a good phone to rely on and for it to do basic tasks then don't waste your money on the galaxy.
Super mobile with super amoled hd. I am a s2 user but i love this mobile.samsung is superb for smart phone

SGS3 is a gr8 phone.Recently upgraded to 4.1.1 via kies on my pc. Now it became slower and lagging lot. takes more time to open contacts and swapping windows. can any one help to fix what could be problem?
Come and see in India. It is only the NOKIA which has service centres at most of the cities. Can you prove that htc mobile page has proper info about its service centres (without calling the call centre) in India?.
Anonymous, 13 Dec 2012hi, can people transfer music from the computer straight to the phone. where as with apple you... moreyes, you can.
You can use the microsd card to. just copy your music files to the card.
Until/if "Supercurio" releases "Voodoo Sound" for S3 I recommend using "Boeffla Kernel" 2.21, it has less bugs than Siyah but is a little less easy to configure! I also recommend "XiiaLive" and "rad.io" and "DI Radio" for streaming music!

HI ppl. Need ur opinion. I am planning to buy a new phone.. M a bit confused between iphone 5 and samsung galaxy s3. Currently i am using galaxy i9003 since 2 yrs. My phone keeps hanging on a regular basis. I am assuming this could be due to the android OS or may be i use internet heavily on my phone,use a lot of bluetooth to transfer files, watch movies on my phone. Is it because of the heavy RAM useage my phone hangs?
I have heard that iphone has the below limitations:-
a. No bluetooth facility to transfer files.So, any alternative to do so?
b. Iphone 5 does not support all video formats?.SO, does it have an application that runs all formats?
I have seen few ppl carrying an s3 who are recent purchasers of the phone. and they love it. I have also seen ppl who regret buying a s3,simply coz it hangs
AnonD-89012, 13 Dec 2012when is jellybean update for s3 coming to ghanaBy nxt week,so enjoy...
AnonD-89146, 13 Dec 2012after the 4.1.2 update my benchmark is 15500....Just shows how rushed tgd S3 release was since they could get 20% extra benchmarking results in Jellybean, and apparently there's still a lot more room to spare for more optimising. But I'm just worried Samsung won't bother to improve it much more because if it's too good less people might get the S4 next year.
Sorry to bother. My question once again is - how do I get VPN out of my phone.I tried the long press, but it did not work. It sickens me to see the dots on my opening screen and the glamour of an exiting phone is wearing off. Please help.
