    Default S3's are dying after 150 days. No!!!

    You might want to read this. It's not looking too good. S3's are starting to die after 150 days from the main board failing.

    I'd be interested to know the actual number of failing units compared to units produced.

    How about a little perspective. From the linked article:

    Compared to the millions of Galaxy S3 handset sold, the number experiencing the issue is minuscule, likely not enough to cause Samsung to revamp their hardware build. But if you have experienced a similar issue, know you are not alone. So lets not everyone freak out. The world isnt ending and your Galaxy S3 will be just fine.
    PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. We can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they began.

    Nope. 150 is the magic number. After that, kiss your S3 goodbye.

    Well since the apocalypse has to happen in the next half hour or so we should be ok.

    Or is the world ending thing hyperbole as well?

    Stop trying to spread panic... the article itself said the number of failures are so tiny in comparison to the number of phones sold.

    My phone is over 150 days old and no issues. My wife had one self inflicted issue with hers, which was replaced. I almost feel like I just doomed myself to a mainboard failure.

    150 days seems reasonable for such a complex device.

    Yeah the next generation comes out in something like that kind of timeframe and everyone should be getting the newest. A minium of four phones a year sounds right

    I've had mine since the 25th of June with no issues. This has been a GREAT first Android device I must say.
