According to some reports, the battery drain issue has only been reported on the international version of the Galaxy S3. The few lucky users who managed to get their hands on US version of Samsung Galaxy S3 have reported that the battery of their handset is working fine. Several android phones have also reported that there is a drain in the battery. The power consumption of the phone is 50-70 percent more than the actual use. A software update issued to fix the problem. Even the Samsung Galaxy S3′s U.S versions have reported this problem when connected to LTE.
The Wi-Fi connectivity in the Samsung Galaxy S3 is flawed as users have had a itch when they try to connect to internet in cafes and homes. The company is trying to fix the issue and will be releasing a software update for the problem.
Samsung Galaxy S3 users have posted in many forums that their handset sometimes gets stuck on a certain percentage of battery level while charging, resulting in an unusually longer charging time. The users say that the problem gets resolved instantly if the battery is once removed and then attached again. However, the solution is just temporary (sounds like a software bug) and the battery meter gets stuck again at some point.
The microphone which is the DNA of Galaxy S3 is it malfunctions. The people have complained that the volume levels are low on the receiving end and the call is not clear. It is pretty sarcastic and funny that a smartphone can’t make proper calls. Anyhow, according to Fix Ya, updating the firmware or restoring the S3 to the default factory settings should be a solution to the microphone problem in Samsung Galaxy S3.
Amazingly, Fun47, referencing the users, states that the phone is just too thin and danger further when the user is wearing tight jeans. However, we doubt such an issue will really manage to break the Galaxy S3. So it is probably not much to worry about.
The big issue has seemed to crop up amongst many device owners following launch— a microphone malfunction which causes users to be unable to hear the person on the other end of the line.
