My friend has an S3, and we are baffled to the problem.
Basically the phone has 3-4 hrs battery life from a full charge. We tried a hard reset, new battery, app killers, disabling apps, virus scans, adware scans, etc. No avail. It just eats battery on or off.
The phone does run very hot, just sitting there the temperature is up around 50°c. The SD card also won't register.
Has the handset developed a fault?
