Mee, 04 Sep 2012Very disappointed with purchasing S3 with android, OS is crap really, so many bugs ... once is... moreAs soon as you mentioned that you mistake was from leaving your n8 (lol) to the s3, that made me realize that i just wasted 10 seconds of my life reading stupidity..
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. :)
jmdvijay36, 02 Sep 2012How to make call. this cell phone.Bcoz i hve buy this handset is today...Dont buy since you don't know how to make a phone call. Use landline.......
iSJ5, 03 Sep 2012i dont know about gs3 but i will try to help you! same problem with my ip4s but i think is the... moreIts better to turn-off the phone. You save lot of battery. I don't understand for such advices to turn off this & that, then what's the fun of buying smart phone.........,
I am using S3 since from past few weeks. But its battery sucks. Battery life is so poor. Other feature are really awesome. But I am not satisfied with battery back up. I already sent my phone twicely to the Samsung customer care center. I hope they will do something and fix it.
does it not get shipped with ics, jelly bean is the update provided
[deleted post]your words did really amount to nothing.. amusing though..
hard to be critical when your bias from the beginning huh
take it easy :)
[deleted post]suing a company for millions over things as trivial as a phones form factor is a tad bit different than making someone were there tee shirts right?? just a little.. thank you
also i was never ever ever claiming its tech specs, performance yes.. so before you start running your mouth get your facts straight cool??
and i will quote you now 'when SGS3 launched' yes launched.. critical word there is launched the phones and again pay attention ok.. the phones everyone saying are the s3 killers are still yet to be LAUNCHED .. get it??
next.. as far as i see it i dont see anything better.. possibly better maybe.. would like to ask you though and it is a little hard because again we are only making assumptions... if the difference in 'speeds' between a dual core and a quad core are so close in real terms or day to day life are non existent personally id rather the quad for better multi tasking, better gaming and again a more efficient cpu wouldnt you?
okkkkk finally lol...will quote you again '
Enough with the hypocrisy Samsung fanboys, try and be respectable like your Sony and HTC Android fans' pretty sure all them sony fans have been the ones yelling sony is king, beats the s3, etc etc from the roof tops in samsung forums.. i mean it would make sense to wait til the phone is actually 'launched' right???
youve got nothing :)
How is this Phone????.. Any anyone say about it's battery??? ..... Can it be upgraded to Soya Bean OS????
Anonymous, 03 Sep 2012Even the chinese Xiaomi phone matches or bests the SGS3 in benchmark tests. What is certainly ... morebtw even if these phones do out perform the s3 ... 'shock... horror!!'... these are new release mobiles your talking about, the s3 was released over 6mths ago... and thats a big IF.
