Default Back to the DX again...

Well, after 4 days with the Galaxy S3, it went back to the store. Too many issues. Next phone to hope for is the Fighter.
S3 issues
1) Weak signals, dropped calls, dropped data connection in locations where I have "never" lost calls on my DX. My wife's Maxx gets 2-3 bars of 4G at the exact same time the S3 has no connection at all.
2) The screen, although sharp and beautiful, but too dim. When in the car dock on google maps, it's too dim to see.
3) You cannot use BT phone and have a headphone jack attached at the same time for calls. I use my headphone jack to pump music and movies into my car stereo, but when a call comes in, it will not play over the radio. You have to unplug the headphone jack before the BT will accept the call. Major fail.
4) Other annoyances like the "connect to wifi" notification always there in the notification bar without the ability to remove it. And also pop up windows saying "Known WiFi network detected. Connect?" Even though the WiFi is off. Don't really know what that is about, but don't care for it popping up.

Time to get smart on the upcoming Droid Fighter or HD what ever it will be called.
