michaelmurfy:mattwnz:michaelmurfy: To be honest the main reason for the S3 not charging is due to corrosion on the charging port, look at this with a flashlight and you'll likely see there is some green corrosion.
And this, is not covered by the CGA as it is actually liquid damage caused by pocket-sweat (wear and tear) or similar, 2 years you should be also looking at upgrading your phone.
That isn't an excuse though, goods must be durable and designed to be and fit for purpose. As a phone is held in a hand and stored in a pocket, wher there are higher than normal moisture levels, it should be designed for those conditions, and not fail prematurely as a result. I suspect these new phones which now have water proofing in them is a solution to these problems. Not everyone can afford to upgrade a phone every two years, and a phone should easily last 3 years. Personally I have never had problems with my devices charging, nor any corrosion appearing on the contacts.
You could argue the fact however won't get far. The fact is they don't cover moisture and the corrosion could have come from anywhere.
The manufacturers warranty probably doesn't, but the CGA may cover it depending on the situation on a case by case basis.
