Got S3 a week back.
Everything is just phenomenal.
You cant compare any HTC's or Sony's with this gadget.
Just one small issue.
Battery drains if you dont keep your apps under your supervision.
Disable non useful inbuilt apps.
At times battery heats up a bit. Its bit warm when you touch on the bums of S3

But why as a consumer, we need to find out how to solve a product issue (in my case is battery drain issue) ourself?
Isn't this part of Samsung's after sales service to ensure that the product meet the customer's satisfaction to the fullest?
Plus, i will loose the warranty if i root my device rite?

It come with new back cover...it'll make the phone thicker. Some come with cover design acting as protective and extra power as well...not sure how good are they. I ordered one for my S3 and will let you all know in here as soon I got it.
The battery life is the same as the iPhone. You just need to know how to close applications after using them. These mobiles are not your basic first generation Nokia. Where the battery would last up to a week without charging the mobile.

With WIFI on and 3G (WCDMA) and DATA off, S3 battery seem to last very well. Samsung should license HTC weather App, It's very well made and Motorola's battery technical or cell. Motorola known for battery outlast than any other brand.

I am purchase a Samsung galaxy 3 mobile three days back at Guntur dist. . But the battery charging is very poor. battery backup is also very poor. so i am very disappointed

I had a N8 2 years ago lol...2 years ago, i never ever compared it with this phone, not even the iphone 3g
Very disappointed with purchasing S3 with android, OS is crap really, so many bugs ... once is ringing for msgs once is not with no change no reason, screen once goes off itself as set once isnt.... etc. Speaker is not loud enough, while useing Navigation in car is hardly to hear and also music or video in outdoor enviroment very bad !!! Battery least hardly till I come home! Camera is crap compare to my previous N8 not in resolution of course but in sharpen n other aspects !!! My big mistake to leave Nokia N8 and go for this !!!! Sorry but thats my experience
please do not criticise sony ,lg & htc here.
This for samsung S3,You can explain ,your samsung experience,we want to know,your feedbacks & defects of this phone.Not for arguements & do not use bad words...
Guys, the current firmwares do have issues. I'm gonna put some light on 2 of the major ones here.
1. Battery Drain
2. Memory Leak
1. Battery Drain is due to an error at Samsung's end while compiling the firmware version. Please update your devices to the latest software version to fix it. Before reporting about the battery, kindly check for battery draining apps & keep an eye on your Screen On times.
2. Memory Leak is a condition where a certain service takes a lot of RAM and locks it, making it impossible for Task Killers to free up RAM and thus, slows down the phone showing you low memory errors. This is another problem that should be fixed with an update. For rooted users, please refer to XDA forums & you should find a flashable zip that solves this.
PS: there are some apps that prevent the phone from going into sleep when you lock your phone. Such apps or services should be identified and killed. Or they would keep sucking on your batteries & CPU.
I'm a Galaxy S III user since July 6. I've had my share of problems initially but once I was rooted, I got the solutions from the great XDA Community and I'm now problem free. I can confirm that the performance & battery are much much better than what was out of the box & on being able to utilize the max of the hardware, dare I tell you what a performance beast this phone is!
So guys, read the forums, understand your phone, root it after gathering enough information about how things work in android & you'll then truly enjoy being a Galaxy S III user.
Your lame comments telling that your phone isn't giving you satisfying battery backup & performance shows how big a fool you are. :)
