One of the top selling smart phones Samsung Galaxy S III’s sudden death issue is hogging limelight. Here we discuss main features of the problems
One of the best Android handsets Samsung’s Galaxy S3 is reportedly suffering from an unexplained sudden death issue. Reports suggest that Korean tech giant Samsung’s highest selling smart phone, gets switched off automatically and then doesn’t start. This sudden death has become so much prevalent that a thread on a technology blog has got more than 600 complaints of similar kinds from many areas in the world.
Galaxy S3 is giving tough fight to Apple’s iPhone 5 and is among the best smart-phone available in the market. So far Samsung has sold around forty million handsets of this super-phone and its demand is so high that the company and its associates are struggling hard to meet the demand. Though the demand for another Samsung smart-phone remains very high, Galaxy Note 2 doesn’t come even close to Galaxy S3 at least in sales numbers. Despite the launch of many new and great handsets including iPhone 5 HTC One X+, Nokia Lumia 920 besides of course Galaxy Note 2, there is no sign of its demand coming down.
A post on Reddit has got as many as 150 comments regarding some xda-developers discussion being called Ultimate GS3 sudden death thread. The thread is not very old but there are as many as 61 pages and 601 posts and given the number of complaints I fear the number of posts is going to cross a thousand complaints. A report in Android Authority says, “There’s speculation that the NAND is becoming corrupted and failing. Worryingly, Samsung are replacing the mainboards with the same revision so this may just be putting the problem off for another 6 months or so”. But the good news is that Apple is replacing the handsets under warranty and they suggest that they are working overtime to solve the issue.
