I actually reinstalled the update last night via Kies and seems like the RAM issue is resolved. I am still testing the phone as I am commenting. Haven't got a chance to play games on it yet. Hope it won't crash like it did last night before my reinstall.

Instead it uses Portable Device standard MTP or Digital Camera standard PTP
Because of this you can drag and drop from my computer but none of the programs on your PC that use the Mass storage mode will be able to save directly to the card.
It sucks big time.

Been using it for nearly 6 months, fantastic phone no regrets at all. Jelly bean update is great. Exynos quad core is super fast. Hardly use my PC now.

Sam9teen, 04 Dec 2012but the usb connecting to laptop is still a problem.....its nt getting connectedi had the same problem, so i downloaded and installed the usb driver for samsung phones and it solved the problem. u can google the link to download.

And this phone is power hungry when it has to make a data connection. Anything that will reduce the power is going to be a problem.
USB1.1, thin gage wires in USB cable, muck in port, slack fitting cables, cables that are too long. Laptops that reduce power to the port when running on battery. Towers that have low powered front ports. And there are more…
Sam9teen, 05 Dec 2012whenever i try connecting it, its just keep connecing and disconnecting. it gets disconnected ... morePoor or bad data connection could mean the port on the phone is still not clean.
Find a way to clean it (rocking the cable in the port has worked for me in the past with older phones) or you could use a usb cable with thicker gage wires.
I use Cbus Wireless flat data cables. I have 3 in different colours. (home, car & office)
But I see that brand is out of stuck. Below is the link to the same type of cable in a different brand, you can use as a reference.
most blackberry cable have high gage wires as well. (stay away from nokia branded cables)
note: the higher the gage of wire the shorter the charge time.
I destroy cables all the time. so the above is from personal experience.
all the Cbus Wireless flat data cables are still working so far.
