And if the Optimus has better sunlight visibility than the S3 someone is lying or there is something seriously wrong with that S3. The Amoled screens are way better in the sun even at lower brightness.. Higher brightness is the only thing that give some LCD's an edge like the Iphone 5 is much more reflective, but just bright enough to make up for it.
Can someone Explain what the numbers in the Sunlight legibility test means , is it based on the higher the better or what ? and if so why the LG Optimus 4X which has a score of 1.691:1 in sunlight can be more visable in sunlight than the Galaxy S3 which have much higher score which is 3.419:1 .

Instead of that dangling wires from your phone as an antenna to your phone's radio, bluetooth headset with built-in radio gives you freedom to move especially when travelling at the same time you can answer the phone for incoming calls.
I hope that solves your radio problem.

I do not want to have both a phone and a transitsor radio in my pants pocket, with two different headphones, one for the radio and another for my answering phonecalls!
I need 3G-connection and have unlimited 3G-data, but I travel a lot and there is not 3G-connection available everywhere and streaming radio over Internet drains the battery even when I have perfect 3G-connection!

Since as you said 3G connection is not always available so a 3G phone will not always be useful, why waste your money for a 3G phone? Use a basic phone.

Nanocoating would be a far better way to waterproof a phone than using annoying breakable flaps that needs to be removed everytime headphones are plugged in and needs be open in the pants pocket while listening to music...!

Believe me SG S3 is more powerful and better design than iPhone 5/Lumia 900 etc. Better grip feel better and light weight. And I feel SG S4 looks more better than SG S3
