North American S3s seem to be just fine, but European S3s are the ones dying.

So for the most part, this topic is irrelevant for most of BX.
THIS!

My gf's S3 never had that problem and nobody I know with one has had that problem either. They all happy as can be. Go post this is a UK forum or something. Tryna bring hate to the big bad GS3.

If your Samsung Galaxy S3 has randomly died without warning fear not, as a firmware update is on its way to cure your poorly smartphone.

Before Christmas some Galaxy S3 owners reported that their shiny new handsets were dying after just a few months, with the 16GB model later singled out as the at risk version.

The issue appeared to be with the main circuit board, but Dutch site Tweakers believes new hardware isn't required with Samsung confirming it will release a firmware update to resolve the problem soon.

Limited impact
Instead of the main circuit board being faulty the cause of the issue is actually a bug in the firmware which is used to control the board.

Thankfully most Galaxy S3 owners won't need to worry about this, as it only effects a small number of handsets, but if you are one of the unlucky ones at least a fix is on its way.

We'll keep an eye on developments and let you know when the firmware update roll outs so you can breathe new life into your Galaxy S3.

That sh*t happens to most android phones at some point.

My wife is waiting on the Note 3,so I took her upgrade and got the s4. She is currently using my old s2. All it does it cut off,doesn't reboot,I have two spare batteries that stay charged,doesn't matter. This has happened to me with my Evo,and The Moment. Not surprised the S3 is seeing the same problem. Won't be surprised when it happens to my s4.

Honestly,if apple ever comes out with a phone that has a bigger screen,I might make that move.
