I have a task killer and manually force them to stop in the application settings but they constantly keep appearing. This was my first move to Android and although I am impressed with some of the phone features, the Android software which has the potential to be the best needs some solidness to it. Battery not great either and I am not a big user. For me the potential is there but Android software definitely needs to be looked at. One other thing I don't like about the applications is the access some of them want. Seriously where is the privacy!?
I have been with Android since 2.1 n have been with Motorola (was nice) then sonyerricson (also nice) then moved to 7" GSM galaxy tab even played around with my cousin's note but I have to say no phone b4 n currently is as well built, thought, n a pleasure to use as the S3 : )
I got one for my wife n dat nite I felt so left out n left behind I went n got myself one the very next day ;) get one if u can it is perfect n an experience not to be missed if u can afford one. WELL DONE SAMSUNG. S3 is a job very well done! This phone was "crafted" not made.
What really annoys me with this phone is the apps that start up in the background. I can kill all apps, not use phone then when I look at what is active, maps, chat on, e mail, messages, google + etc. It's so frustrating because clearly this is dfraining the battery more. Luckilly I have a chance to send this back as it's upgrade. May wait until the I phone 5 to come out and see where to go. I do like Android but this opening apps when I have not selected them is really annoying!
SGSII WITH ICS, 17 Jul 2012i just sold my samsung galaxy s2 because of some problems that is signal issue and bad camera.... moreIf you are looking for good, not good kidding "BEST PHONE" in the world buy this, every bug from S2 is fixed it's just awesome.
SGSII WITH ICS, 17 Jul 2012i just sold my samsung galaxy s2 because of some problems that is signal issue and bad camera.... morego for it. get the new Samsung, I've had them for years with no probs, you probably just had a one off bad one.

I have tried all lower versions from single core htc hd2, atrix 3g, samsung tab 7.7 dual core, samsung note dual core.. iphone 4 iphone 3gs. And iPhone 4 really is smooth. And iphone have lower specs then any phones above..
But once i get s3 .. all lag is virtually gone.. and battery life is good!! really for once i have zero complaint about jerkiness of UI or lag or battery. its like the hardware is so good it overcomes everything. And the upcoming 4.1 jelly bean is supposedly trying to further solve this issue. Sure android DVM means slower, but that gap is closing to a point it doesnt matter anymore
I'm only one didn't notice this?.. Samsung Apps > Category > More Services > (Scroll Down) Polaris Office 4.0.. (v4.0.3207.03 ; July 12, 2012 ; 22.81Mb)..
hi guys who uses or has expert knowledge about this phone...
i have been trying to deactivate 3g and leave H+ open even if drains my battery faster. with my country's limitation only selected areas has availability of LTE or 4g so i got a 3g phone which is this s3. i selected wcdma only but stil when it fluctuate to 3g from H/H+ it sucks like hell... when i stream H/H+ works great. but when it stoops down to 3g... it's like i'm lucifer thrown down from the land of gods.
again all i want to ask if there is a way to deactivate HSUPA and leave HSDPA open... i tried *#197328640# there is the desired option but still it's no good. i was able to see the RCC control but it seems not to work at all... is there like a video or walkthrough on setting this up...
SGSII WITH ICS, 17 Jul 2012i just sold my samsung galaxy s2 because of some problems that is signal issue and bad camera.... moreBuy this phone and wait for Jelly Bean update I'm sure you'll love the amazing features, which iOS 6 does not have. :)

I don't trust all reviews, I only trust my own experience. I own both the HTC One X & the SGS3, and SGS3 AMOLED screen is more legible under sunlight then the LCD screen of my One X.
I have it 1 month now. Compering to S2 have to say; only phone where no need slide to unlock screen if not wish , battery last much longer , text message can make bigger with volume control as much as you like , additional light on front side for missed cal or messages . All this make me happy . Only speaker is not loud like S2 but still only phone for me able to use without glasses . thank you Samsung - sorry my very old friend Nokia

Epsecially in the beginning. But somehow everyone forgets this with every single new purchase and assumes that this new phone is going to be flawless. Then when its not they get upset and spamming areas saying its got glitches and selling it saying its the worst thng ever.
