Default Annoying things found in GS3

The device is cool, apart from some annoying little things.

1. Browser settings are not saved, when you open the stock browser, its brightness level changes, and you have to manually set it to the one you want every time.

2. No option in the phone to move your data/apps to SD Card.

3. Calls logs displaying Received/Sent SMS Messages, you can filter it, but if you close the logs app and come back again to it, filter is gone.

4. Wallpaper is always croppted.

5. Many duplicated names of folders in gallery.



This is what I have found yet, have you guys faced these? or something else that's frustrating? Also if you have their solutions.

stock samsung browser has always had a separate brightness control as far as i know. there are much better, more feature-rich browsers out there anyway.

custom launcher + quickpic = scrolling wallpapers
all you gotta do is when you go to change your wallpaper it will ask you which program to use a couple times. select quickpic each time.

one thing i found out last night, in addition to no LED flash at >15% and no camera at >5% is no camera while in a call. i can almost understand the battery percentage limitations but i have no idea what purpose this serves. makes me really wish i had gotten that 25 cent camera app during the sale...
