In the step: "Tap "Notification Panel"." Some Samsung Galaxy S3 devices do not carry this option?

In the step: "Tap "Notification Panel"." Some Samsung Galaxy S3 devices do not carry this option.

Yes, some Samsung Galaxy S3 devices do not have that kind of option. Many of the other S3 devices are not actually Samsung devices, but they are fakes from a different courier. It is a clone of the Samsung Galaxy S3. Since they are just clones, the setting are different and do not include all the settings available on the actual phone. These options are mostly only available on the original copy of Samsung Galaxy S3.

My Samsung Galaxy S3 notification panel cannot slide down?

Y Samsung Galaxy S3 notification panel cannot slide down where can I fix the problem it doesn't show in the setting

This can happen due to the screen being dirty, and your touch not being recognized properly. You can help this situation by cleaning off the screen so when you slide your notification panel down on your device, your touch is recognized.

Some Samsung Galaxy S3 devices do not carry this option. I mean the "Notification Panel"

It would be impossible that the notification panel is not present in some Samsung Galaxy S3. The notification panel is a basic feature for all Android devices. It's where you can customize shortcuts to other settings. The Notification Panel can be found on top of the screen where your clock, and other small icons, can be found. You need to tap and hold the screen where you tap then drag it down to view the Notification Panel. Again, this panel is available on all Android devices, no matter what brand you have for you mobile device.
