    OK I have a RAZR Maxx HD. But have gone through 6 of the darn things because after a few days of the phone being replaced the earpiece starts rattling at anything beyond 1/4 volume.

    Vzw has offered to swap me to the S3. I've had this phone before. But 2 things got me.
    1 was the small battery size causing me to charge the phone non stop.

    2 A repetitive issue when playing music the sound harmonics or vibrations can be felt through the hand via the phone case (body of the phone). I tried 2 S3s and hated that. As well the volume seemed much weaker than the Maxx HD I have now.

    So I wondered has JB fix any of these issues or Samsung? The harmonics through the case was a big one for me.

    Thanks guys!

    The s3 has for me been by FAR the best phone I have ever had... Battery life is great.... I get 12 hours of good life everyday... I use the phone a lot also... Emails, calls, and countless texts, plus just general tinkering with this and that.... Depending on when you had the S3 a few months back there was a HUGE shipment that went out with defective batteries...

    As far as the vibration through the phone, I don't play much through the external speaker for the most part I use headphones. I will say that with how "cheap" feeling the back battery cover is I don't doubt that would be the reason.. I know when I first got mine the first few calls I made when the person on the other end would talk it would resonate through the phone horribly.... I put a decal on the back that I made and I can't say for sure if that was what fixed it or not but I do know that it seems to me that right around that same time is when it stopped.... I also know that some of the extended battery packs come with a better made sturdier back.... I also keep mine in an Elago G5 case which could be helping things also....
