So let me list the symptoms that my beloved Samsung S3 is displaying and maybe you can diagnose, or you’re experiencing the same. But in essence, I’m just mentally preparing myself for a new phone, because clearly Samsung’s have an expiry date.
The charge - Drains and drains like a tap, even when I’m not using
it. I’ve changed batteries twice, and the 2nd time it was a torture
getting an S3 battery because they’re not being produced anymore -
verbatim by a rep at the Samsung Care Center.
I am not receiving texts - and when they come (which is hours after) they flood my inbox -
that could be a network issue, but well, I wouldn’t know.
My Safaricom Sim function is dysfunctional - basically I can’t transact
on Mpesa or Safaricom+ - which could also be a network problem. But how many
network problems could one have?
The phone just hangs, like out of the blues, just hangs - and you just have to be patient with it.
