    I have owned my S3 from sprint for about 3 days. So far, I am loving everything about it and see it as a huge improvement over my old Blackberry Torch, with one exception. I keep accidentally tapping the back and menu buttons on the bottom of the screen... This seems to be happening at random lame times, like when I want to turn landscape to take a video, or share a video with a friend, etc... Is there a simple way to make these buttons a tad less sensitive, or is it something S3 users just have to get used to and learn to avoid? Any help appreciated!!

    As others said, you adjust with time and practice. Personally though I wish they had just used real buttons.

    I've hit it occasionally myself. I would prefer physical buttons that require some pressure. Lately, I've just gotten used to holding it in a way to avoid hitting it. It just takes some getting used to.

    Most of the Android phones today are similar in terms of capacitive buttons, you need to get used to it :)
