Honestly TouchWiz isn't as bad as it gets made out to be, in recent iterations it has really added a lot of useful features. You can always use an alternate launcher like Nova to replace the UI but retain TouchWiz features.

Why not just root it and skip CM and use a DAC? It is CM that does not work iwth S3, not the S3 itself.

A lot of what you read on the phone forums about battery life can be ignored. Everyone whines about not having the latest UI features. the brightest display, or the fastest video, then complains that the battery life is worse on "ROM version N+1" than on "ROM version N." They also flash a new ROM and whine that the battery life stinks compared to what they had been running for the last month or year, neglecting to think that they have been "playing around" with their phone pretty heavily with the new ROM. 

 

The reality is that you have a pocket computer that is more powerful than desktops a couple years ago, running off a battery. Yes, it will get hot and the battery will drain when you use it. "Ain't no gettin' around pissix." If you pay attention to what you have running in the background when you're not using the phone (Better Battery Stats perhaps the best tool for determining that), you'll get decent life.

I have been getting much better battery with Sammy based ROMs (Touchwiz) compared to CM Has anyone tried this yet...looks interesting with the inclusion of Sony´s Clearbass! http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2002197

Thanks for replies, using this phone right now and I love it! Now im wondering what dac to get smily_headphones1.gif
post #927 of 947

The only DAC's that seem to work use USB inputs that max out at 16/48 like the TI chips (not the new Tenor chips)- there is a huge list available, do a search. My iBasso D-Zero works well with the S3 and our Note 2.

I'm pretty much satisfied with the Siyah kernel audio tweaks + poweramp eq + vmoda m80 setup. Sounds better than my bro's iphone 4s + sens ie8, atleast to my ear. 2c

I have had the S3 for about a month or two now and with just a couple of easy tweaks small tweaks to save some battery life, like turning off auto brightness and disabled S-Voice, I am able to go about 2 days with moderate use before even getting close to having to charge.

 

Its a great phone but just an FYI, they announced a couple days ago that the Galaxy S4 will be coming out in February. This is when I suspect the S3 will be getting Jelly Bean 4.2 since that releases in December and they expect it to hit S3 early 2013 so it makes sense S4 will have it pre-installed and S3 owners will be able to get the update.

 

Although I have music on my phone I rarely use it for music, I finally just hooked it up yesterday via AUX in my car and it sounded damn good esp with the bass, the Virtual 7.1 actually enhanced the whole sound too.

 I don't think they have announced the S4 for February actually, it has only been rumoured as far as I'm aware (same rumours last year and it didn't launch until May with release in June).
