There were reports of the Samsung Galaxy S3, despite being one of the better selling smartphones out there in the market, is not free from its flaws, where one of them included randomly dying which is definitely one of the more irritating experiences to go through as a smartphone user. At least if you know of certain ways to avoid your smartphone running into certain issues, that is livable to a certain extent, but not to get fair warning on what could trigger a random shutdown is downright annoying. Users who experienced this with the Galaxy S3 figured out that the flash memory in the handset was becoming corrupt and failing, hence resulting in the device’s mainboard to die.
It seemed that devices were able to last between 150 and 200 days before giving up the digital ghost permanently, where Samsung would then replace them without asking any further questions. Dutch site Tweakers claimed that the issue can be traced to a problem in the firmware, and this bug can easily be squashed with but a minor update. Apparently, this issue is not widespread, but has affected only a very limited number of Galaxy S3 owners that have the 16GB model.
