They seem to have done a pretty good job of creating relatively few sub assemblies. And I like the relatively large 2100 mAh battery.

Not good approach for 21 pages. But when Junko writes, it is always single long page!

One question, do you have to request permission to Samsung or any of the phone's manufacturer to make a Teardown? How about the BOM you present... how do you get it? is it just by identifying the found chips in the boards through the teardown? It's good to see a teardown since this way we can know who are the chips more common in the phones nowadays. And guys, why such a big fuzz about the 21 pages. Seeing 19 pictures isn't that big of a deal.

Interesting tear-down! If you don't want to scroll through 21 pages - and even on a moderately fast link this gets really tedious, click on the [=|print] icon at the bottom of any page, and you get it all on one page - scroll to read or print this to read afterwards!

I have heard that S3 would include a wireless charging function, but on the pictures I do not see any clue about a receiver coil embedded behind the battery(or maybe in the battery itself). Any confirmation of such function?

May I suggest removing the battery in future BEFORE applying the hot air gun - some of those babies do not like getting hot and we would not want anyone getting hurt in the search for truth ;) Surely the "64Gb of mobile DRAM" must be a misprint? Even if that is only 8Gbytes that is a serious amount of ram and would make it a bit pointless strapping 1GB to the top of the processor, surely?
