What does your warranty certificate say about what Samsung should do with errors during the warranty period?
Does is only mention "replace" or does it say "repair or replace"?
Anyway, you're warned now. When buying anything check the warranty and if you don't like that, see if other makers have conditions you like better.
Say you bought a car. That's more than 40000 Rs. Say something breaks during the 2 years of warranty. Do you expect them to give you a new car or would you be content with a repair? If the last, why are your expectations for a phone other than for a car?
I have been a great fan of Samsung Mobiles since beginning. I have always purchased the latest flagship devices that Samsung has released. I have got Galaxy S, Galaxy SII and recently when samsung released Galaxy SIII I purchased it within a week of the launch. I purchased Galaxy SIII on 18th of June 2012. Everything was running smooth untill 4th of Spetember. The phone started rebooting from the welcome screen itself. Upon contacting the service center I was informed that it is a software issue and they reinstalled the software. Still the problem persisted. Next day when I contacted Service center they opened up my phone and checked and informed me that the mother board and needs to be replaced with some IC's and other stuff. This genuinely is a shock to me. Having purchased a phone of 40000 Rs. and in less than 3 months it needs replacement of the very core components of the device ...!!!!
THIS IS TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE FOR ME...
I NEED A REPLACEMENT OF THE DEVICE ASAP...
I CANNOT STAND THE FACT THAT MY PHONE WHICH IS LESS THAN 3 MONTHS OLD HAS TO GET A MOTHER BOARD AND OTHER CORE COMPONENTS REPLACED...
There is no satisfactory response from samsung delhi center as well. I have seen a hunderd forums where samsung has replaced the device in ncase if faulty appliance. Why does Samsung India have a different policy than the rest of the world.
I would request you to kindly replace the device ASAP as this has been a completely surprising and frustrating experience.
I am loosing my trust in Samsung which has been my favorite for years.
Expecting a very prompt and positive response or I will have to resort to the consumer forums for the help.
Model: Samsung Galaxy SIII - GT-I9300
