I live in a rural Nebraska town and don't ever have any signal strength issues or dropped calls. I've always had good luck with Moto phones in this regard. I am debating the two devices (DRM HD & SGS3) and am only hung up on my concern for signal strength/dropped calls. Does anyone on this thread live in a rural area and have any issues with the SGS3 as far as signal strength/dropped calls? I've read a decent amount of concerns on this for the Samsung device and would like some feedback from some owners. I'm aware of the difference between the two devices and this is the only hang-up for me. P.s. I'm on Verizon.
I saw my brother in law use Wi-Fi direct on his note 2 tonight. It's slick. So either way I wouldn't worry about it. Transfers will be easy no matter what you useOriginally Posted by geoff5093

For example, if I try doing it from my ICS RAZR MAXX HD to my Jelly Bean 4.2 Nexus 7, I get a large file error. However I know I've done this transfer when I used to have a Galaxy Nexus running Jelly Bean and sending photos to that same Nexus 7 before it was 4.2.
In JellyBean nfc establishes connection, then photos and videos get sent with Bluetooth so the devices don't need to be next to each other. Still not as fast as S-beam but better than what is available in ICS.

Data speeds were maybe just barely better. I stuck with the GS3 for other reasons. :-)
I had the s3 and I ended up having to swap it for the Razr Maxx. I live in a very rural area and the phone conversations were choppy. You could only make out every other word. Once I switched phones the calls were fine. I loved the s3 and would have kept it had it not been for that. The screen was awesome and I loved the phone overall. I would rather have the HD but it was not out yet when I swapped.
