Many of us are normally purchase our Samsung Galaxy S3 via data package offered by carrier. I am currently subscribe to Starhub (One of the Singapore Carrier) and every time I turn on my web browser in S3, the homepage is preset to Starhub official webpage. It’s quite time-wasting since I will normally end up with opening Google Search page to start my work. If you are facing the same situation, I am here to teach you how to set your favourite page as your homepage.

    Is there a button you can press to go back to the home page, when you’re on a different page? Like a standard Home button? Because I can’t find one…
