I dont understand why does everyone go crazy about S III in android phones???.... Of course its a great product. But it doesn't have the best screen in the market,, It doesn't have the best design and body, it doesnt have the best software updates support.... But still S III is considered as the king of Android and is sold in bucket loads... Why?

I'm with you. It feels too cheaply made with that plastic build. but the biggest gripe is that the software updates like the Android version updates aren't really there especially after Google's plans going forward with ice cream sandwich.

Yes the S3 is fragile feeling and i gouged three scratch into the phone just to get a case off of the phone whereas my crappy motorola phone wouldnt have had a scratch on it but the overall interface and sexiness of the phone is what sold me, i had a moto droid 3 and it was a freaking nightmare of a phone, now that i have s3 i dont regret purhcasing it for a sec. I had....for one insane moment...considered buying the iPhone 5, i would even got it discounted at 125 bux! But decided against it because it is no different than any other iPhone, for christs sakes slap some matel all the way around it and remove the s**tty glass and change the entire interface and mobile platform about it and then we'll talk. The S3 is a great phone for techies and beginners alike. The iPhone 5 is all about old people who b**ch and moan about a smart phone being complex?????that is the whole purpose of a SMARTPHONE!

the s3 is the sequeal to the s2 which was one of the best androids ever made. Even to this date it still trumps many smartphones in terms of usability. Take for instace the new Optimus G: sure it has much higher specs and runs on a newer OS, but it's camera quality is not as good, the speaker is not as loud, and the call quality is not as good. The S3 is not a good enough phone to up the s2 but for those looking for a good solid smartphone at the time it is a good choice.

not the best screen? well... to many the screen on the s3 is quite amazing
specs? it is a quad-core--- what app do you use that the s3 can't run???

everything you say is just based on your opinion if you don't like it than don't buy it IDC... and it is in no way the king of android anymore but it was when it came out

lol Optimus G runs on a newer OS? well, you need to check your facts before commenting anything... And you are right, that's based on opinion and may be thats just me. And i didnt tell that any apps are not running/lagging in s III, so don't be sarcastic, my point was why didnt other good products like One X take off like S III?

The One X is good but one major reason was the availability. It's an AT&T exclusive and not too many people know about being able to buy an international version and those that do still have to buy it at a premium. The SGS3 on the other hand followed up on the SGS2's good market performance, it's available on the top 4 carriers (soon to be 5) and others, and Samsung marketed it as best as possible. On top of that it also has an international variant which was a hit and was all over mobile news because of how powerful it is.

I got one of the at&t variants at bestbuy that day of the sale for $50 with the phone freedom coupon. can't complain for the price. The best thing is they still have the 30 day exchange of the device if you don't want it. In case something else catches the eyes in the next 26 days... It has been great so far, still use Other o.s.'s too though so no bias thanks to sim cards ofcourse.

I did the same, i work for a competitor but still went to bestbuy simply because i didnt want to pay $125 for my Gs3 lol! The only slightest bit of loss that i feel is knowing the Note 2 is coming soon!
