Contact photos don't show up
Problem: Hi, I’ve tried a full factory reset and yet the photos (which are assigned to each contact) still do not appear on the left hand side in the contact list. In fact, blank pictures don’t even show up. Tried phoning Samsung support and they couldn’t help me. They said I would have to send the phone in for a service which would take 7 – 10 days. Any suggestions?
Galaxy S3 Gallery stopped working
Problem: Hey, I was hoping you could help me fix an error that comes up when I try and retrieve hidden items from the gallery.

Knowing the third-party apps
Problem: Hi, I still have a Samsung Galaxy S3 as a backup phone and read your excellent article on-line. A question for you: Is there a way of knowing what apps you can uninstall and those you cannot - apart from trial and error? I have no problem with the rest of the world using social media sites (for example) but don't know why I have to have them using up space on the S3 and loading into RAM each time I turn on my phone. I not really want to root the S3, any other options? Any help appreciated.
