    I recently purchased my GS3 and the issue I have is I'm sure fairly simple, but apparently so am I cause I can't figure it out. I can't for the life of me figure out how to zoom in on pictures in the web browser. I've used both dolphin and the default browser and neither will let me zoom.

    Any insight would be phantastic!

    Thanks guys!

    Welcome MyGreenEscort!
    Can you pinch to zoom? Pinch the screen?

    That was my first thought too.

    No I cannot. For example I can't zoom in facebook mobile or if I do a Google image search I also can't zoom there either. Basically mobile sites don't allow me to zoom or something

    Facebook mobile doesn't allow zooming. You can do it on the Facebook app though. As for Google, you can't zoom either unless you long press on a picture and select "open on a new tab/window". Its like on a PC, you can't zoom on a picture in Google search unless you open the original image in a new window.

    Thanks for the reply guys! I just downloaded the FB App even though I really don't like using it. Its unfortunate that m.facebook won't let you zoom.

    Thank you!

    Most mobile sites (any m.xxx site) I've been to do not allow zooming. You could always log into the full Facebook site and use zoom that way.
