ok well tried to get another 50gb on dropbox but still have it from the S3, to those of you that don't have the dropbox 50gb free data here's how you get it.

If the Dropbox app is pre-loaded on your device, you may qualify for 48 GB of bonus space for up to one year.

Additionally, some devices that have the Dropbox app pre-loaded may also have the Dropbox "out-of-box experience," which means that the first time you turn on the device, you'll be asked to sign in to Dropbox or create a new account. If your device has the out-of-box experience, you may qualify for 48 GB of bonus space for up to two years.

The first Dropbox account that signs in to the app on the device will get 48 GB of free space (assuming the other conditions are met). Each account is only able to claim this promotion once.
Complete the Get Started guide

To claim your extra space, you need to complete at least five steps from our Get Started guide. Please note that some steps require your desktop computer.

I bought these in dark grey and light silver, and I do like them, though they scratch and the logo is raised and will scratch very soft surfaces. Makes the phone feel more chunky. Unsure if I will keep it.

ok thought they might be like that but its just a cheap way of protecting the back, I did get Plastic ones for S3 and they were ok but did eventually break but we very cheap.
