How to Setup Another Personal Email Account Aside From Gmail on Samsung Galaxy S3

 You can also setup another personal email account on your Samsung Galaxy S3 via POP (Post Office Protocol) or IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) options.  In these option you can send an email email using mobile data settings. But the downside of these option is that it only works when connected via WIFI and the phone deletes the account daily and it needs to be recreated. As different wifi connections have different SMTP server settings it makes sense to set up and use mobile data settings for sending emails however as wifi overrides mobile data you need to manually turn off wifi to send an email.

But if you want to setup an email account you can simply do it as follows:

  • Tap on Apps
  • Tap on the "Email" icon
  • Tap on the box and type in your email address username and then the password
  • Tap on Next
  • Select server type which POP3 Outgoing Server Settings
  • Ask from your email service provider and fill in the incoming email server settings and tap Next.
  • Type in your email username on the box
  • Fill in in your email's incoming email server. Select None for Security Type 
  • Type in your outgoing email server. Select None again for security type.
  • Put a tick on the box that says "Require Sign In"
  • Tap on Next.
  • Select your desired time for Email check frequency for your phone to check and retrieve emails.

Samsung itself has still no official statement on its policy update to Android 4.1 - just an announcement that this explanation. For now it seems - despite the good news about a possible quick update - prudent to await this statement.

How to Connect Samsung Galaxy S3 to MAC PC using Android File Transfer

Some users of Samsung Galaxy S3 struggling to connect their devices to a PC running with MAC OSX. Using the Android File Transfer on Windows computer seems no issues but when it comes to Mac computers and Macbook pro laptops seems there is a problem with the connection.

Connecting Samsung Galaxy S3 to MAC PC using Android File Transfer issues:

So I got my SGS3 yesterday and noticed that the Android File Transfer app won't work, which used to work well when I owned a Galaxy Nexus. I tried it on 2 different Macs and it won't work on neither. The app does not recognize the phone being connected. When I connected it on windows (bootcamp, same Mac) it was recognized, so it's not a hardware fail, it's a software bug.

My Q is, has anybody successfully managed to use the Android File Transfer app together with a Galaxy S3.
Thx, all the help greatly appreciated.
It's definitely something with my Mac. I connected to my virtual Win7 machine on my Mac and it freaks out with the installing new software pop-up over and over but never connects.
Now it's gonna drive me crazy till I figure out what's going on with my Mac!

Hey guys, i'm having an issue with the file transfer. I can see both internal memory and SD, but when i tried to drag and drop from Finder it is giving me an error, saying my screen is locked (even when it isn't) and asking me to reconnect. anyone else have this problem? for now i'm transferring using File Explorer but its a pain in the ass. thanks!

I had this problem when I just got my Galaxy S3 at the end of May, and switching the connection mode to camera (ptp) did the trick. Now, however, regardless of the connection type I have chosen or whether or not I have enabled debugging, I cannot use AFT. At no point does it recognize my device, it just keeps telling me "No Android device found. Please connect your Android device with a USB cable to get started." I have reinstalled the program and still no luck.
MTP never worked for me on my Macbook, while PTP worked as a workaround until LFB (and later). With LFB changing to PTP (by default) pops up Image Capture, which, if everything worked as it should, is what you'd expect I suppose. The problem is that Image Capture doesn't find any pictures on the device even though it recognises that an I9300 is connected - and Android File Manager now doesn't work in either MTP or PTP mode.

Connecting Samsung Galaxy S3 to MAC PC using Android File Transfer Solution:
On your phone, when connected to the AFP program on your mac, you'll see a USB symbol in the notification area. Pull it down and you'll see it says something like 'Connected as media device' and it'll give you options underneath that to change it. Select that and you'll get to a settings page which will allow you to set your phone as a media device ((MTP) or as a camera (PTP) - do the latter and it should work fine.
I have to say, I love this phone but am not overly enamoured with the mac syncing aspect of it. Most apps in the store are flaky at best or don't work at all, TBH. Using the above method, I've managed to get my media over to the phone by dragging/dropping from iTunes and iPhoto.

Problem is, I still can't find a way for my computer to - reliably - see my phone as a camera when I plug it in e.g. invisible to iPhoto and Image capture.

I did actually. Turns out you have to check Camera (PTP) mode instead of Media device (MTP) mode.
Once I connected and checked PTP, the Android File Transfer now sees my phone
You don't need to be in debug mode either.


Install UMS (USB Mass Storage) apps
Here's another solution if you're Samsung galaxy S3 can't connect to your Mac computer. This is an apps called UMS (USB Mass Storage) which enables your Samsung Galaxy S3 external microSD card  accessible as a USB mass storage device. 

If you find a way around any other solution to this problem, please let us know.

How to format a 32GB/64GB Micro SDHC/SDXC card on Samsung Galaxy S3

If you have just bought a new MicroSd card on your Samsung Galaxy S3 you need to format it first before you can continue to use the card to store files such as apps, music, videos and anything on it.

When you ordered a Samsung Galaxy S3 its already have a preloaded 32gb class 10 additional microSd card, an external memory on the phone. Some users prepared additional space so that they can store more files since Samsung Galaxy S3 is upgradeable up to 64gb extenal microSD memory card.

So, it needs to be formatted first when you put it into your Galaxy S3 before you can store anything to it, just make sure that you have purchased a compatible card that exactly works on Samsung Galaxy S3.
When my newly purchased 64gb micro SDXC card - mine is Sandisk Mobile Ultra, I first formatted it to exFAT file system. A  64GB micro SDXC cards works basically on every Android device that can read up to that capacity but they generally only work when formatted to Fat32 rather than the SDXC standards native exFAT formatting system (several devices on ICS work with them formatted NTFS now also, but as a general rule Fat32 is the only option). The problem here is that when you use of these cards Fat32 formatted you impose a 4GB file size limit on them, which can be hassle for transferring HD video to your device, and even worse you curtail the stellar read and write speeds available in the SDXC standard. I for one can't wait to format my 64GB card to exFAT for unrestricted use in my S III.

You can grab the SDXC formatter with exFAT support at

This guide shows how to format the microSD card once you firstly mount the external sdcard on your Samsung Galaxy S3 phone's memory card tray.

1. Press the 'Home Menu'.

2. Choose 'Settings'.

3. Scroll down to the bottom> Tap 'Storage'.

4. scroll down to the bottom> Tap 'SD card'

5. Tap 'Mount SD card'

6. Tap 'Format SD card'

7. You'll be then prompted with a message
Data cannot be recoverred after SD card is cleared. Continue?

8. Just Tap 'Format SD Card' button

9. Finally Tap on 'Erase SD Card' button to start the erase process.

10. That's it!

You will then see a total available space of your newly formatted SD card. You can now add or store more files as you want on your Samsung Galaxy S3 externalSD card.

Update:  Prior to the new firmware releases by Samsung, this process will no longer works.. Please read martin phillips posts below instead.
It would appear that the recent firmware upgrade withdrew support for the exFAT file system. Reading around, lots of people have reported problems with exFAT on the S3 (see the wesite). It was from this site that I got the solution....

FAT32 is the way to go (yeah it's got a 4Gb individual file limit, but I'd rather have 64Gb of storage than a 'dead' card). As I reported above, the Windows 7 command line tool will not format a 64Gb card to FAT32. The solution from the xda site above is to use this tool:
(click on the screenshot to download, not the 'Download' link)

All I have to do now is put all my data back on the card!!!

How to Adjust the Display Brightness on your Samsung Galaxy S3

Your Samsung Galaxy S3 display brightness is already set to a default level that may look good, but not everyone's users eyes can find it more refreshing. Just like if your're indoors or in outdoors the screen brightness may differ from its environment, you may probably want to adjust the brightness away litle bit lower or higher level to suites your eyes visibility. 

You can easily change it by going to Settings > Display > Brightness and adjusting the slider until it's set to an acceptable level.
You may also want to take advantage of the 'Automatic brightness' option so that your Galaxy S3 will automatically become brighter when you're out in shade of the sunlight or dimmer when you're at home or under the moonlight.

Adjusting display brightness of the Samsung Galaxy S3
1) Tap "Menu"
2) Tap "Settings"
3) Tap "Display"
4) Adjust your desired screen brightness level or set to "Automatic"
In addition, some users suggestion if the display brightness way set to high will consume a lot of battery power, like if your constantly checking Facebook and Twitter throughout the day.
When it comes to save your battery life, setting the display brightness at low is a way better and last much longer before it drains.

Samsung Galaxy S3 Connectivity Comparison of U.S (AT&T SGH-I747, T-Mobile SGH-T999, Verizon SGH-I535) and International (GT-I9300)

I was just confused, if somehow if the the U.S variants of Samsung Galaxy S3 like the AT&T SGH-I747, T-Mobile SGH-T999 and Verizon SGH-I535 can also be used in other countries. So I did a quick search for how the connectivity capabilities differs from each other. In U.S mostly mobile operators carrier were run in 4G LTE network which means it is has higher frequency bandwidths from other countries. These almost the same in Canada, some countries in Europe and Asia but others only have GSM/CDMA mobile network connections. The below table is a comparison of the Galaxy S3 variants from U.S and international version which is the Samsung Galaxy S III GT-I9300. So, lets take a closer look for a while.

U.S and International Samsung Galaxy S III Network Connectivity Comparison

2G Network
CDMA 800 / 1900
3G Network CDMA2000 1xEV-DO
4G Network LTE 700 MHz Class 13

The Samsung Galaxy S3 GT-I9300 International version was also built with LTE 4G network connection capability but only for those regions with higher frequency mobile networks. Whilst the US carrier variants seemingly built with 4G LTE capabilities that can also work both with GSM 2G and CDMA 3G frequencies, which means if those U.S variants Galaxy S3 devices can be unlocked or debranded,  it can also be used on other countries with GSM network only or without 4G network providers.

The most part these different Samsung Galaxy S3 variants only both the same with each features, like the main display technology which is the Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors with a size of 720 x 1280 pixels, 4.8 inches (~306 ppi pixel density) with Corning Gorilla Glass protection. The camera which is 8.0 Megapixel are seemingly high quality photo resolution.

The differences took to my attention is the CPU processor used which are different from each other. Now note that the CPU handles the speed of the any mobile phone while browsing, playing media and etc.

International Samsung Galaxy S3 I9300US AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S3
OS Android OS, v4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich)
Chipset Exynos 4212 Quad

GPU Mali-400MP
OS Android OS, v4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich)
Chipset Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon
CPU Dual-core 1.5 GHz
GPU Adreno 225
Although, this device is powered with Android Operating system, there is still a big factor on hardware speed capabilities. The Samsung Galaxy S III GT-I9300 international version is packed with  "Quad-core 1.4 GHz Cortex-A9, Exynos 4212 Quad chipset" while the U.S variants build with Dual-core 1.5 GHz, Qualcomm MSM8960 chips.  So which one is faster? Well, lets just compare the two, I will make another research about the speed differences between these two CPU's or processors.
