    there's something called reader mode, when you're in an article you click it and it will reflow.
    Are you talking about some function within the SGIII factory browser? I didn't find any such mode anywhere in the settings.

    If memory serves me correct some browser features (text resizing and locked scrolling) that make reading easier were disabled thanks to the apple lawsuits for samsung phones that's why other phone brands have some better browser readability.

    Use Chrome instead, text reflow is much better than stock browser

    The post you're referring to (http://forums.androidcentral.com/sam...ml#post1841432) is what someone already mentioned in this thread (reader mode), however I think this only works when you're within an article and not ALL webpages

    I went to Sprint and played with the display model and every page I went to reflows fine. Even when zooming after double tap, there were no problems. I checked the settings and all were as suggested here, so maybe it won't be an issue for me, especially using Chrome or another browser for general use.

    I'm probably switching to AT&T though (even though I don't wanna), so will try again this weekend when they have a display model to try out. It shouldn't be any different, but we'll see.

    Yes, it reflows ONCE after a double tap.

    The problem is that it doesn't reflow after you zoom to any other amount.

    iPhone works the same way, so I don't think it would be an Apple lawsuit that's changing the behavior.

    The HTC Evo 4G LTE works properly.

    Again, the problem with "just using Chrome" is that it doesn't integrate fully, so any programs which open a browser window will still open the stock factory browser.

    I CANNOT BELIEVE one cannot set text to reflow automatically when manually zooming a webpage like the HTC Evo. I have the S III already, and finding the web almost impossible to use. I am not going to scroll each sentence back and forth to read a web page. I do not understand what Samsung was thinking - the device is so elegant in so many ways - perhaps there is something being missed. How can they make this mistake? The phone may go back and I'll get the new Evo if HTC retained this feature - the issue is a big enough deal.

    The Autofit does not solve this.

    Well that's a issue with all browsers. Download Opera Mobile if you want that feature. I don't understand how the double tap isn't enough. Good luck you guys!

    It's an issue apparently only on the GSIII.

    On the HTC Evo 4G LTE I verified that this works fine.

    So, as much as I would like 2GB of RAM and a removable battery, I will probably get the HTC, since it is at least fully usable.

    As long as I remember HTC is the only android phones that uses correct reflow text....all the other android phones uses zoom text that is similar to the iPhone. HTC's copy and paste is also superior.

    My LG Optimus S also reflows properly, as do all the other Android phones I've played with.

    For text reflow in the stock GSIII browser, you need to use the Reader.

    You can find a green R icon in the address bar for supported websites.

    Then you can zoom in and the text will reflow..

    Personally, I prefer it without the reflow.. I'm fine with the auto-fit

    This is deal breaker for me, and I will not get this phone. My E4GT will reflow the text the more I zoom in.

    Not good enough. It needs to work with all websites.

    I would be willing to bet that this issue would be one of the first solved via a Samsung update. I wouldn't jump ship just yet.

    Not true. My wife's Epic 4G and my E4GT can both reflow the text if you keep pinch zooming.

    They may fix it if they recognize it as a problem for users. What is the mechanism for making them aware of it?
