    The screen on my S3 powers on and the display works, just not the touch. Any ideas?

    edit: just want to update. the touch buttons work

    The screen and the digitiser are 2 different components... Although on the SGS3, its sold as one expensive part.

    The screen is teh screen. All it does is show you things. On top of that is a glass layer called the digitiser that digitises your touch into an action "on screen".

    Its annoying that they seem to be the same part as for the HTC desire, a digitiser is

    Maybe it's damaged, does it have scratches? or maybe you sit on it while it was on your pocket...

    You may need to change the digitizer

    looks like im sending off to Samsung for a $300+tax digitizer/screen/frame replacement.
    i've read so many horror stories about this phone already with the screen cracking and stuff, should've waited for the new Nexus device.

    Did you drop, hit or sit on the device? If you didn't do anything and it's a manufacturer defect than it should be covered under warranty.

    Not sure what stories you've heard but personally I've had no issues and the device feels solid and secure to me.

    Who do you see trolling? I re-read the posts made and people only seems to offer their opinion and experience.
