    So I've been able to diagnose that my s3 (4.1.2) T-mobile 16gb, not rooted has sudden death syndrome. Essentially it shuts off randomly at times even though there is a lot of juice still in the battery.
    My warranty ended a few months ago, but I was wondering that because this issue was widespread, is there anything I can do to get a fix w/o having to pay for the repairs.
    Thanks in advance.

    I had the same thing happen to me after upgrading to 4.1.2. Not sure if yours just shuts down and stays off, but my would freeze and restart itself. It probably happened 6-7 times a week.

    I decided to finally factory reset my phone, because others have suggested a clean wipe after a software update. Haven't had the restarting issue anymore, except maybe once in the last month.

    you seems to have a app or battery issue not sudden death syndrome.

    sudden death syndrome will basically brick your phone b/c of a eMMC chip bug (hardware issue) it will not let you turn your phone back on no matter what you try or how long you wait. you can download an APP called eMMC Brickbug Check in the play store to see if your chip is infected.
    Samsung will change out the board if under warranty.

    Had this problem .... All you need to do is update your firmware. My phone is rooted, so I just installed the latest 4.3 ROM and it fixed the problem. Apparently Samsung has fixed this problem with a patch on its update. So if your phone is not rooted, just go to Samsung.com and download the most recent firmware.
