Galaxy S3 Freezing / locking up
Over the last few days, for no obvious reason mine has started freezing randomly; sometimes after a few hours, sometimes immediately after restarting. In all cases, the only cure is to remove and replace the battery. When it freezes, whatever is on the screen remains there, and none of the hard or soft buttons have any effect, even if left alone for a couple of hours to work its own EDITED out.
Googled it, seems like its not uncommon (but what phone fault isn't). Did a factory reset this evening to try and avert the "lose your phone for 2 weeks" under the generous Samsung warranty scheme, and that's improved it from crashing by the minute to two crashes in 6 hours so far....
I had a similar experience with the S2, in that it would randomly switch off and reboot itself, but at least it worked as a mobile communication device.
Anyone else had similar experience? Are the HTC smartphones similarly fragile? I had a Desire a few years ago, and it was the most reliable phone I've owned apart from ridiculously short battery life.
