Some Samsung Galaxy S III units are dying young

Some Samsung Galaxy S III units are dying young
Something bad is happening to something good. A number of Samsung Galaxy S III handsets are crashing for no reason, and won't reboot. This horrible, horrible thing is happening about 150-200 days after activation and Samsung is doing the right thing by replacing them under the warranty, no questions asked. Even if your phone is rooted and you've installed non-standard firmware, the Korean based manufacturer will replace your phone.

One Samsung Galaxy S III owner whose phone passed away, speculates that the NAND is becoming corrupted which ends up with it failing. Samsung is said to be aware of the issue, but has yet to comment on it. While Sammy has played "mum," some working in the Samsung warranty call center have heard of the problem, saying that it has happened a lot lately.


Have any of our loyal readers suffered through this experience with their Samsung Galaxy S III? One minute it is a working high-end smartphone powered by the latest technology obtained by Samsung, and the next minute it is a brick. Let us know how it happened and whether or not Samsung took care of you by sending out a replacement.
