    Seriously? The heptic feedback not sticking after a reboot issue in the tread you provided was mentioned three times. Two of the mentions were in quotes of the original post. Known, widespread issue? Good Lord.

    You think it doesn't run well on the hardware? I thought you were talking about bugs here. All phones have em. We have to decide which ones we can live with.
    Praise the phone in the main site and trash it on the forum. Credibility strike 3.

    Is it really difficult to understand that the phone runs great but also has bugs? Are those two things really not able to be different?

    i gota admit. coming from rooted divices in the past with stock android roms and never having owned a samsung, the thought of touchwiz worried me a bit, especialy since i plan to keep the s3 a "virgin" until the guarantee runs out (i payed 600 for this puppy) but once you get past the ugliness of it and put a launcher on it, its pretty functional and seems to add more than it takes away from ICS (im not including most of the daft gimmicky features that came with "Nature"). having said that ive never lived with Sense.

    Wait -- do you want to talk bugs, or what phone Jerry likes?

    I pointed out a laundry list of bugs in a phone you claim has none. No need to get offended. After all, you certainly didn't mean to offend anyone with your original post, right?

    Please point out where I said any phone was free of bugs. Misrepresenting what people say is about as lazy as you can get in a discussion. If I meant to offend anyone in my original post I would have posted to the HTC One X forum.

    Not doing the work for you. I don't own the phone, but I'm assuming you do. If you would like to know what bugs your phone could potentially have maybe you should read the forums.

    Sorry, I misunderstood. You seemed to like defending Jerry. I thought you might want to look up something to repair his credibility.

    The lock screen is busted if you use a PIN - True depending on what you wanna use it for.

    The CPU pegs and drains the battery randomly - My phone has never seen this issue.

    Wifi was weak and dropped all the time - I have not seen this either. I use WiFi every day also. Both at my office and home.

    No text reflow in the browser - Sure but to me its not a huge deal.

    Calendar reminders are broken - This is broken. I did forget about this bug.

    Haptic feedback is broken - My phone has never had this issue either.

    Poor implementation of Bluetooth - Bluetooth works in my 2012 car with no issues at all.

    Weird icon shift/stutter when you close big apps - I Have seen this as well but not to often.

    All good points. I think you had a bad phone. I would have returned it for another. But if you just felt like the phone was not gonna work for you then I am glad you returned it and found one that does work for you.

    My posts are not meant to be rude any in way guys, So please do not take it such. This is just my opinion and what I have seen with my time with my S3.

    Blah, blah, blah. Still waiting for the cite where I said any phone was free of bugs. That's OK, you know you were not truthful. And how about some more references to that wide spread problem with the heptic settings not staying. Toy away but if you can't back up your comments there isn't much use in playing.

    No, I assumed you were. After all, refusing to respond to issues you were called out on is a sure sign of defeat. Just admit you were wrong about the "widespread" issue of settings not sticking and my saying any phone is without bugs and I'll let you off the hook. I still think your phone from hell was a MacGuffin.

    You can search out the issues the same as I can. Or I can start sending you all the "help me" emails that come in for the GSIII. Maybe you can successfully help these people, because I can't and Samsung can't. That's why they're called bugs. Convenient how you skipped past all the other issues and focused on one you haven't heard before.

    You certainly inferred that your phone was bug free. Twist that however you like. You want to get people riled up, and instead you got me -- someone who doesn't care, thinks all phone manufacturers suck equally, and doesn't mind playing games on forums. My goal is to keep you and your trolling confined right here, away from folks who just want to enjoy their expensive phones, and not play silly games.

    Take it out on me instead of decent people. I don't mind

    I guess I'll do some work for you. Also, please post where you acknowledged any of the bugs that your phone (the Galaxy S III) has.

    Why isn't this thread locked yet? Especially with mods posting in it continuing the arguing.

    @Jerry - I just want to say, I don't use haptic feedback, it's one of the most annoying "features" and also a waste of battery so I disable it immediately. Outside of that though the issues you describe I have none of and are such that you might have had a lemon and an exchange would have been in order. We had a poster recently that said how awful his S3 was and his problems were far too many to be normal and everyone attacked the poor guy. He eventually exchanged it and posted back how happy he was that he no longer had a single issue he had prior. I think you might have simply been that un lucky as he. Consider that.

    Well, basically, because we're the Mods and we decide where the line is. Trust me, if it was crossed it would be closed.

    "You certainly inferred that your phone was bug free." What BS, major fail. You were the one who cited and provided (insufficient) information on the settings issue. You were wrong and readers of this thread know it.

    Now go through the HTC One X forum and do the same. Report back (honestly) which phone has more problems. You know you won't because you would lose your argument. And now I'll ask you, where did I say the Galaxy S III had no bugs. Really, let me know. I'd like to be assured that you just aren't making stuff up.

    Just looked at the first two of your references. You are kidding right? First one was a problem no one responded to. Why, no one else had the issue. Second one was a guy who didn't like the Samsung keyboard. He was told to get Swiftkey. OMG, what a problem prone phone the S III is. This is unbelievable. Fail
