I recommend the TPU-case "BELKIN GRIP SHEER CLEAR", it protects my S3 and also makes it easier to use the keyboard in landscape because I now never accidentally press the back or meny buttons!
Now I am only waiting for supercurios "Voodoo Sound" to make S3 close to "perfect"! :)
PINKY, 08 Aug 2012Hi!
I am using this phone since last two weeks now and i must say its feels great to have one... more@ PINKY
All you have to do is press the menu button on the home screen and select Settings/LED indicator and TURN ON 'Missed event'.
It really is THAT simple. You should learn how to use your phone, not ask other people to sort out something as simple as THAT!
this phone is a beast, it was looooooooooong due for samsungto release a phone better than an iphone
Anonymous, 07 Aug 2012Why can't Samsung do away with that physical button. The only reason why I don't buy Samsung b... morei have seen Htc dont blame that physical button it is far better than htc option's...if u use it u will come to know....while using some other thing or game or what ever it may be in HTC if you just touch those key's it will end the ongoing process that really not good option....if its in S3 its differenet.
looks nice, great specs! a well-balanced android phone. but come on samsung the design is like such a rip off of iphone4.. well i guess at least it looks nice. if it is priced well this beast will definitely do well in the markets......Abhijeet
mikeltotz, 07 Aug 2012you can see the difference of s3 and 4s on the specs. 4s 2core 512mb ram no sd card slots ba... moreLol that's a terrible comparison. So as long as the battery is bigger it does not matter if it gives shorter life? A phone is better with more RAM, even if it doesnt perform as fast? Flawed.
Samsung found to abuse underaged children in Samsung factories:
im confused between iphone 4 or s3
what should i do
should i go with samsung o r apple
I've been testing this phone for a week now since I only have 1 week replacement for the unit and its parts. The only this that disappoints me is its battery life. I'm expecting it to last for at least 10hrs of light-medium use, but I was so frustrated when I need to charge it every 5-7hrs. I've read so many reviews about it and it all says that S3's battery is one of the best. What do you think guys? Should I bring this unit/battery back to my carrier (since I got this phone with a plan).

Having read dozen of opinions, I want to share my little idea over 4s and Siii as I used to be Arc S, S2 user then switch to 4S user since a few months ago. Here's my discussion:
1. Design of 4S is nicer even though it's heavier than S3, as S3 use all plastic body. And you need to be careful it can break. I experience with my S2 that its back cover scratch and break while I remove plastic protection to sell it.
2. In term of both based stock firmware, 4S need "Jailbreak" to bring out potential the most of it. Example Phone contact doesn't show preview of contact pic until we install app (called tweaks in Cydia) to make it works. Action menu tweaks (for copy, paste.....text) need also have after jb. Moving cursor around text need also install tweaks as well. But these things are available in android with just a few touch. But the quality of 4S tweaks are really great, that make 4S even a great phone. One of the tweaks that I like is that, in-app purchase..it allows to buy things in esp. game items for free.
3. In term of third party software, 4S still wins. Let's say apple wins. I don't know how google encourage their 3rd party developers to make app for android in which ways..quality is acceptable but still bad if you ever investigate and use that same application on 4S. 3rd party software for iphone is very very good-design & usage.
4. Specification of S3 is really great in paper. But I (think) even though Quad vs Dual core is 2x different, it still not too different in phone. I hate iPhone 4S, every time I reach the line that everyone wrote 3.5" vs 4.8". So upset that Apple doesn't make it at least 4.x" in their 4S generation. But one thing that I can confirm is that it will get "hot" if using continuously in two or three hours. 4S does not. I play mc3, amazing spiderman or order n chaos, the 4S just feel warm in my palm. Memory, even S3 has 1gb but memory hog problem...was heard everywhere. Hope it be fixed in another firmware of s3. But for the "hot" problem, when I use s2 it's still there..Almost every week I tried with different firmware, going for ICS and downgrade to GB...it's still fast to get hot. So I thought it's the hardware quality.
In conclusion, it's a matter of taste in recent world whereas people want to try different taste. And no matter what, it will accomplish the same way. If you have a lot of $, you can switch back forth back forth..and search for what adore you.:)
Anything wrong please forgive.
well a few weeks ago I was in the dilemma of weather I should buy the samsung s3 or wait for the iphone 5 so i decided to go with the s3 in white and boy am i impressed!! it is the best phone I have ever had! it dosent have limited features like the iphones for e.g. the camera on the iphone 4s has only 2 options HDR and Grid where as rhe s3 has over 30+ options.. i went for the marble white because the blue one looks dull and im glad i did, the s3 is a beautiful and sleek looking phone and is by far the winner of the current smarphone market even when the iphone 5 is out i still think the s3 will dominate the market because face it iphones are just boring and simple to use so buy the s3 you will not regret it
saivicky, 07 Aug 2012shit designed for humans with big hands...lol maybe it has been designed for elephants maybey you have small hands?
Impressive Phone, processor speed very good apps run very good. Camera is Excellent, phone usage wise is best of the best. Can buy with close eyes.
Loepoes, 07 Aug 2012This horrible piece of plastic doesn't come close to the Nokia N9. Th N9 is something unique, ... moreYou buy an N9 you also get Symbian in with the package, and a really good Symbian handset just isn't a match for even the worst of Androids.
saivicky, 07 Aug 2012shit designed for humans with big hands...lol maybe it has been designed for elephants How is it shit? You buy it if you want a big screen and there really is no better phone for Width/Thickness to screen size ratio, I mean just look at the iPhone with it's tiny screen lost in a sea of glass, plastic and metal.
I am using this phone since last two weeks now and i must say its feels great to have one. I am having a small problem with this phone ..the battery goes off very soon and second one will sound silly, but the service light that use to display at the top of my handset is not blinking at all now. I dont know what is wrong with it. It does goes red when plugged in for charging, but has stopped blinking in blue when removed from charging.
Please if u can let me know what should be done?
