    i have the LTE version too, and software update reports that i dont have any updates... if it is on every version, mine certainly doesn't have it, tried looking everywhere, mine did originally come from HK, could that be a possibility...

    The stupid blue tab? Irritating and useless

    For multi tasking I press and hold the home button and swipe away or select

    Have you guys actually used the tab? I have a feeling you haven't. Holding the home button and swiping doesn't allow you to run 2 apps side by side lol or am I missing something??

    I'm confused as well. It's actually quite handy imo.

    I wasn't aware you could use it to run two apps on the screen at the same time. However, since giving it a go I still think it's useless :p Can't think of many times I'd need to use that.

    Just been offered a deal on this phone by orange, and now may be signing up to another 24 months of them after swearing I'd leave! Arrrggghhh!

    Even though I have a gs3, I've been lusting after this phone for a while now... Just waiting for them to get some stock of the grey one, as I'm not really after the white one ... Patience is running thin though... Do any if you who have the white version have any problems with the light bleeding?

    I have the gray. Looks far, far better than the white, the metal effect/the darker bezel makes all the difference.

    No I haven't used blocking mode.

    I thought I'd figured out that it was the smart alarms stopping the main alarms going off so I set a normal alarm for this morning and unfortunately it never went off.

    Getting really annoying this. Can't believe Samsung can't create a reliable alarm. Bit of a joke really.

    Yes, it's split screen. Very useful when you quickly want to reply to a text or something.

    Course it is, I use it all the time. Take notes on a TV episode, keep an eye on my kids IP-cam while surfing or playing Minecraft. Watch two video streams, switch between them. Navigate Google maps with an open car dock. Use sketchbook with an open image. SoundHound for Lyrics on a Music video. Watch TVcatchup and read the news at the same time. So useful.

    Can't get mine to do anything apart from switch between two functions in full screen mode, also when I edit what is available it's only a very few apps not all I have installed.

    Err. I thought I liked Touchwiz. Just downloaded nova launcher. Looks much better, and it supports landscape mode! You guys should try it out!

    Been using nova for a while now, picked it up on the sale for 25p and I definitely prefer it over touchwiz.
