Dee, 19 Oct 2012yeah, joint the queue! let samsung deliver to you not do it yourself. Actually i was pretty sure buying sim free would get me Jelly Bean straight off,,obviously not..I am Uk by the way so thought it would be here now..
Right thats it battery down to 3% time to go on second charge ,not bad about 8hrs 30 mins with the usual faffing about you do with a new phone,,played videos,downloaded all my apps ,set it up,tweeted ,emails,hour of music,been on web ,,used iplayer and so on..I think i may last day if i am less intense and drop screen down to 70% its bright enough.
Samsung galaxy s3 best phone ever made fast good memory and processor much better then any other phones in the market, iPhone 5 no way, nokia lumina no way samsung forever android fast and free OP and now with jelly ben is unbelievable

AnonD-7555, 19 Oct 2012So a friend got this phone from the carrier (they´re raping us here, $500 US difference ... moreAudio is top dog using Wolfson DAC ,
I have just listened to an hour of drum & bass using my Soundmagic E10's ..The SGS2 cant cope with low bass without crippling the volume and sounding muddy the SGS3 just plays it full whack no problems.My ears are numb now but my Senheiser CX300 were good but CX300 II were bass light so went on Amazon and folk upgrading from CX300 were going for Soundmagic E10...The DR DRE's are bit expensive for me..
So impressed with SGS3 and its not as big as you think it is even tho it looks big its deceptive.Hammered it since 6pm and got 23% left sowhen i calm down it should last 16 hrs which is my requirement else its an extended battery..Screen is full blast tho,wifi on and HSPA+ ,LOVING IT.
So a friend got this phone from the carrier (they´re raping us here, $500 US difference for a $50 a month plan!)
I have small hands (my hands from middle finger to wrist fit in a computer keyboard) yet i was able to hold it perfectly and reach all buttons and one handed use felt fine. This phone looks smaller than it is. It fit in my pocket too! No bulge either (thin) Screen is great, no probs there. Felt lighter than it looks. Feels good, like a wide slab and weight all distibuted nicely.
Great audio output on my solo beats headphones and fast web browsing, he didnt have any HD games so i didnt try that.
I highly reccomend this phone! Im buying an unlocked white 32GB off ebay and a spare battery to go with it...see you guys soon
Ok got a sim free pebble blus sgs3 delivered this morning.Give it full charge up while at work so left it till 6pm ,,got home switched it on and got firmware update notification...However all its done is gone from 4.0.1 i think to 4.0.4 and thats it no JB..
Its i9300XXBLG8 which i have googled and is a stock ROM...Now it looks like i have to wait like @DEE has too..
Zabuza, 18 Oct 2012This phone : Good: 1- very powerful spec 2- price is reasonable 3- software update ... moreIf this was an iPhone, they would tell you "it's not too big, you just holding it with the wrong hands" LOL

I got my new Garnet Red S3 this morning with ICS on it. 10 minutes later it had J... morethis is how i plan to add color to my white model if i feel for a change.
oh no 4.8 inch screen is too small i want a 4 inch taller screen just as apple iphone 5
Just wondering how it works...
I´d like to upgrade to JellyBeand.
Everytime I start Kies, there´s a little notification in the lower right corner stating that new firmware has been downloaded for the phone.
But... in kies it always says that I have the latest firmware installed.
I´ve heard that JB is supposed to be out in Sweden, where I live!
Is there a problem with my S3 or Kies(latest update)..?
Any thoughts is apreciated!! =-P
Bought it 5 days ago.Great phone,very much touch responsive and fast but the built quality is really very,very bad .It is cheap plastic
Get over to:
Quote: We’re unsure about the upgrade’s exact “weight” and changelog, but some differences between this software leap and earlier ones could be spotted. Previous JB updates had the I9300XXDLIH build number dated September 28, while all the new ones (expect for the one hitting Switzerland) are I9300XXDLJ1 dated October 8.
I'll be looking out for XXDLJ1 Rom.
