    I have a serious question concerning call record functions. I used to have the Sensation and it could record calls using "Record My Call". But when I moved over to the gs2 it couldn't do it. Could you download the app and let me know if it works?

    So how's the battery life? My GNex battery life is terrible (even with the 2100 battery)...so I'm really curious if it's worth swapping out phones.

    Some time on google could give you your answer! Lots of objective and suubjective measures been carried out. Altho I'd say battery life is a hugely variable result.

    Is there anyway to make HDR the default shooting mode?

    Battery results definitely vary! I'm not looking for an answer that consists of X hours. Instead, I saw that Alex uses a Galaxy Nexus, so I was hoping he could let us know if it lasted a few hours (or even half a day) longer with similar use. If it doesn't last much longer, then it's probably not worth it (for me) to upgrade to the S III.

    Actually it is on topic since it relates to the phones durability.

    I'm coming from a gnex as well (with a POS HTC One X for three days that I returned) and I'm getting terrific battery life on at&t, on call talk time is really sick- I was on the phone for over an hour today and lost 5% total! for me im averaging 15 hours with heavy use. I've only had it for five days so far it will probably get better.

    you can do a hot swap. just make sure you unmount your sd card in the settings> storage before doing that to avoid data loss/corruption

    i have synced my gmail, facebook, skype and yahoo address books to google sync and i now see it on my GS3.

    GS3 has allowed me to link contact details that are fragmented across the various social media into a single contact

    Hi Alex, when I applied an all time black wallpaper for my lock screen, with the ripple effect enable. My screen looks wash out with white blotches. I have notice that with all the wallpapers now, but it is really noticeable with darker color wallpapers. Is there a fix? Or is this a side effect? The wash out look disappears when the ripple effect is disabled. Here are two pictures that show the side effect. Thanks Alex!

    I have, what might be considered by some of the "more educated" Android users, to be a dumb question. I just want to know....when I unmount my SD card from my Gallaxy S II Epic Touch and pop it into my new S III, is everything going to be "right where I left it" on the S II?
    I bought the HTC Evo LTE and when I put my card in it I couldn't find half of my stuff...playlists where missing in my music, 3 (of my favorite) movies were missing, etc. When I put the card back in the Epic Touch everything was there, right where I left it!
    I guess I am "praying" that "Samsung to Samsung" will be an easy swap so I can find everthing!!! I am not very "technical" at finding stuff that gets "hidden" in the dark depths somewhere.
    Live every day like it is your last...because it COULD be!

    Yes. In the camara, go to settings -> shooting mode -> HDR.

    I didn't have a Galaxy nexus (I came from an Evo 4G), but I just wanna say that with heavy use totalling a few quick calls, 300+ messages throughout the day, syncing data in the background every hour, and quite a bit of web browsing and news reading; I can have my battery last me the whole day.

    In my experience, no. I switched my SD card straight from my Evo 4G to my GS3, and it put all the old folders in a folder called extsdcard and created all the folders it needed in a new one called sdcard. The stuff I wanted to move I had to manually move to the other folder.

    Certainly not a dumb question...

    Everything should be there. You'll need to pop the card in and wait for the system to scan the card (usually not more than a few minutes). I'm not sure if it is still the case with the newer models, but Samsung used to add a notification to let you know the progress of the scan. This includes music, images, videos, and playlists.

    I'm not sure why you would have experienced a problem with the Evo unless you simply didn't wait long enough (or their media player is bad about reading updated information). Samsung has a really good track record of supporting a wide range of movie formats, so perhaps you had some movies on the card that are not typically supported by Android. (You can, of course download applications to play those movies.)

    Maybe because it's new, but Sammy has had previous issues with screen burn (image burnt into screen)....

    Try the Light Flow app. It is very customize-able and it works on the S III as demonstrated in .

    My white Epic Touch (SII) had white captive buttons, and they were very easy to see, lit up of not. I'd bet that the S3 will be the same way.
