paadle, 11 Jul 2014Could u please explain regarding MicroSD and 4.4?Limitations in android 4.4 and after :
You cannot use any third party apps to store files in the memory card.
For example :
You cannot perform the following operations using the third party file managing apps like x-plore, es file manager etc :
> Copying / moving any file / folder from the phone memory to the memory card
> Creating, renaming or deleting any file or folder in the memory card.
> Copying, moving or renaming any file or folder within the memory card
You can only copy from the memory card to the phone memory.
> No third party apps (like app backup and restore, bookmarksb etc) can create their backup files anywhere in the memory card.
Do not believe the Samsung trolls here who will say that there is no such problem. Search in google if you want.
Anonymous, 11 Jul 2014Don't be so dramatic. An updated 4.3 with fixed bugs will be released. And eventually, the 4.4... moreAgreed that i am being dramatic cause this is driving me crazy.
Do you have the date of availibility of this new firmware that you are boasting about?

SKB, 10 Jul 2014Dear Samsung, My name is SKB and I am one of those unfortunate GT-i9300 customers.&nb... moreI do agree with you. I also bought my SIII last year October and I hoped to keep it for at least 3 years. I bought this phone straight from the company and it cost me a fortune ($615). I bought SIII without going for a SIV cuz of the looks and the quality of the phone, as SIII was better than SIV because it had very small issues compared with SIV. But now I feel like all SIII users are left out, which is very sad. I will be holding onto this phone for awhile before going to another.
Anonymous, 12 Jul 2014I think u should go for moto G. The main advantage is the price with the specs offered.Don't make me laugh. Moto G is a mid-range quality phone, despite its newer and faster processors. The build sucks, the screen sucks, the sound sucks.

* means - 30 non continuous minutes of voice calls in 2G network, 50 SMS, 1 hour of online texting via WiFi and 30 minutes of online texting via 2G EDGE?.
Hoe much hours does the battery of this phone last based on thenabove mentioned normal usage?.
I purchased Samsung i9300 galaxy S III and found excellent phone. I click 7 times on built number under about phone then it's developer option was enabled. I searched/google how to hide developer option from list but I could not found solution for this phone. Ultimately I hard reset my phone. So be careful if you want to enable developer option without any need.

ankit, 10 Jul 2014can I play real racing 3 or asphalt 8 and other heavy games without any lag in s3yes you can play all heavy games without any lag whatsoever
SKB, 10 Jul 2014Dear Samsung,
My name is SKB and I am one of those unfortunate GT-i9300 customers.&nb... moreHow much times shall I mention about the microSD card access limitation in all the phones that have 4.4 or later?.
Samsung wants this phone, I9300I to be super hit models. Thats why it has stopped 4.4 upgrade to these phones.
