    not sure how serious you are, but the last two galaxies i've owned (Epic 4g and Epic Touch) have been made in Korea.

    I was surprised when I saw the box says China. So much for Samsung being the respectable company paying the higher Korean wages.

    NBD, sure I will like the phone anyway.

    My Droid Charge was made in Korea, and Samsung isn't a customer of Foxconn. I thought they stopped making Galaxy Nexus'es in the Korea plant so they could make SGS3's there, but apparently they're making those in China as well now?

    Wonder what the Korean plant is even for then...

    Have been there several times. Solar and LCD manufacturing, and lots of R&D labs. Not a lot else there but there was LOTS of security! I had an easier time getting into the CDC in Atlanta than this place!

    About a week ago, I purchased a new S3 from Target. Much to my surprise, when I uncovered the battery, the label stated that my unit was made in "China." To me, if it is made in China, it can be a clone. I so want to take it back to Target.

    Koby, few people are going to see your question buried in a thread on a completely different topic. I suggest you repost it in the Galaxy Mini forum: Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini - Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com

    Get a new LCD display or a new phone. The white color reproduction on the GS3 was never really good to begin with. Mine got worse over time. The GS3 was a solid phone in many respects but its build quality and how quickly it deteriorated over time has really soured me on Samsung phones/tablets.

    OP: I'll check on mine when I get home. Just wondering why you want to know?

    You do realize the original post was from two years ago?
    There was some suspicion at the time that there was different build quality depending on where the phone was manufactured. I don't think anyone (other than Samsung perhaps) has gathered any conclusive data on whether there's a noticeable difference in build quality/workmanship/parts longevity between the two countries.
