NFC didn't work cos the aftermarket one didn't come with the chip. Didn't use it long enough to realise any impact on GPS though. It doesn't heat up under normal use. Unless you're running a heavy game or something. But this back door caused heat just on stand by.

Can't we think like this. The metal back door working like a heat sink.! Right?

Hi all.thanx for the replies.. I bought the s3 instead of the s4 bcos I wanted fm radio. I use it everyday. I got it from a reputed dealer. Yes reputed guys cheat,but when I went to buy the phone so many other people were also buying phones. I checked the pic shiffer posted.everything was like in the real phone. Can u post a pic of a s3? The pic u posted is a s4... I think the main reason for damage is the rubber cover... yes Im a die hard android fan... The only Apple product il ever buy is an ipod(already have 3.all 3 are still in super condition after very brutal usage)..

Did you try Samsung Kies. Using this you can update the os and also can check for the fake phone (using IMEI). The phone may not be a fake one since you have bought from a reputed place.

Also there are two types of samsung phones these days. Phones made for Korea and International. Both are original but the Korean ones are looks cheap and the price is cheap. Can see locally lot of these. But I guess your phone is international one as your info.

Hi. I added the about phone pic.. yes the s3 has radio. The s4 doesnt. Thats why I got the s3 even though it was a generation old..I never use nfc bcos almost everybody doesnt have it. Even if they do have it nobody uses it...

I use it all the time :) Not for file transfers tho. I use the smart tags.

Samsung has issues like that, they tend to use that S-Beam software rather than Android beam. A friend of mine tried a helluva lot to link up his Galaxy Tab 10 inch with his Nexus 4. Don't think he got it working right. He prefers WiFi direct for file transfer now.

Explain how you sent it

They have not mentioned anything about overheating. I think the whole heat thing with Samsung phones is because of their thin body

Hi,

Will have to disagree,

I use a S3, dropped many times each day,

but no peeling off and no scratches, I hv a screen guard, and no case.

Did you buy an original ( the price 65k in April is too low, what was the county of origin)

Fro where did you buy, you can go to the agent and find out first the authenticity of the unit before anything..]

Reckless there are few videos up on you tube about the differences in real vs fake S3 check it out i did it before i got mine back in june. I think most likely the fake will not have nfc on it the battery maybe wrong and the imei number will give it away as well as the OS if it shows its a rooted OS.

Thanks but now I feel like going for a Sony or a HTC, because I also use my phones roughly.

I thought, this "Made in Korea" phone is a fake product. I can't believe a reputed company produces inferior quality product for the Domestic Market!!!

Moreover, I would rather expect Korean language on the phone specifications sticker rather than English.

Lots of guys hv got this wrong. Samsung's version for the Korean market (SHV-E210K/L/S in the case of S3), is one of the best versions for any phone model they produce. The 'domestic' model retains the best processor, RAM and radio (LTE) and other features compared to the international version 9300/9305 and the US versions. There's no real benchmark difference between SHV and 9305 versions though.

I don't know whether they sell it really cheap domestically though but I know that many of the clones of SIII are off the SHV aka the korean version.

spot on vishkid. Most of the fake S3s are selling as korean S3 and they are cheap. One guy told me that, you should have bought a korean s3 as it has a tv tuner!. Then I told him that genuine one is never came with a tv tuner and stupid aerial, he almost collapsed ! (He already asked to buy 2 phones from Korea via his friend).

As far as I know, the 'korean version' and 'international version' are utter rubbish created by the phone vendors in sri lanka to peddle off cheap/fake items.

Samsung products made for Korean market are the best... by far!

Most of the fakes in the market have 'Made in Korea' printed on them. They are fake. Nothing more. That doesn't mean 'Made in Vietnam' ones are 100% genuine.

If you get hold of a genuine Made in Korea Samsung product, buy it. Don't think twice.

Exactly! I came across a Korean SIII which LTE and quad core processors. Phones made for other regions were either only quad core+3G or Dual Core+ 4G

and its not only Korean and International version. theres more such as Docomo, AT&T, Sprint etc. There are around two three type of Korean model and i guess there are Korean modles without antenna as well

The S4 has a octacore cpu.The best in their line.

And the korean S4 they sell here is going for around 30k.

Something is clearly wrong!
