I love most things about my new S3 but I hate the external volume button. It's in the wrong place. I can't put the phone in landscape in a car mount without turning off the sound. Just putting it in my pocket can turn off the volume too. And the button is opposite the one that turns off the screen so every time I try to save a bit of battery by turning off the screen before I drop the phone in my pocket, I turn the call volume down so low I miss calls. Samsung tells me there's no way to turn the thing off.
