Anyone notice...

The various battery times for each carrier's model of the GS III?

T-Mobile and AT&T are showing 8 hours. Verizon is showing 15 hours. Sprint and US Cellular are showing 9.2 hours.

Some seriously oddball battery times.

Mobile Hotspot Question

I currently have the MyTouch 4G. I use the mobile hotspot on my phone to provide internet for my laptop. I've never had to pay the $20 fee (or however much it is) to use the hotspot...and I have been using it just like this for almsot 2 years now and I use right aroud 5G's of data a month. Can I do this on this phone....or when I go to "turn on the hotspot feature" will it not allow me because I don't have the "paid hotspot" feature on my account?

Can someone test this or that already as knowledge let me know!

HSPA+ on all bands?

Does anyone know if HSPA+ is available on all bands? I am considering buying this phone full price from T-Mobile, unlocking it and using it on AT&T until I can get off-contract.

Does anyone have any information on how the MirrorLink on this phone works? I'm looking into buying this phone with a Sony XAV 601BT (in-car MirrorLink system). I'd like to get some information how that connection actually happens. I understand that I will have to connect it to a MHL cable, but I don't know anything beyond that.

How does it interface? Is it controlled by software on the phone? Is there something that needs to be downloaded into the phone? Is it all controlled remotely through the in-dash unit? Any information that anyone has on MirrorLink specifically with the Galaxy S3 is appreciated.

This phone has a Barometer ?

Wow. I bet if you search through the menu, you'll find a kitchen sink too.

What the hell does a phone need to use a barometer for? Is my phone going to predict the incoming weather patterns or something ?
