On the skin front, I can strongly recommend this:

£20 but you get what you pay for with Proporta gear in my experience.

I've got one of those to protect the S3 from my 4 year old.. Working well so far and it doesn't add too much extra bulk

Picked up an amber brown S3 the other day and really like it. Impressed with the battery life so far, not as bad as I feared. But then I did come from an HTC Desire which wasn't great on battery life. I'm used to smartphone battery levels now. Word of advice, don't buy Belkin screen protectors. Bought a pack of three from online and they're crap. So many bubbles, I wasted the whole pack of three I bought.

First one sounds alright for those that haven't already upgraded, the second is a bit hit and miss though - the app is free but you pay £1 a week for it.

I'm looking for an Otterbox commuter case but they seem to be rare in Dubai. I did find a defender but its far too chunky for me.

Just found out Adobe Flash isn't supported for Android any more. That's clever!

Phone is big enough without a case IMO

Blame Adobe. They decided to bin flash on all mobile devices.

It was in the store until recently. You can still sideload it, works fine.

Just downloaded the apk and it will work, it'll never be updated though.

I dropped my phone and now the screen has a green tint over 80% over it and the touch screen no longer works. frown

Any ideas how much it will sort to fix and where to fix it?

£150 for a new display and probably around £40-£60 labour.
