Apple would have it every single human being on earth would carry an iphone - and that nobody would use Android.

They actively try to ban Android devices, and their founder has proclaimed that he's going to destroy Android.

This world is too small for both iOS and Android.

This is WAR!

The S3 is a really good phone, very tempting I must say. The only thing holding me back from purchasing it,is the Note 2 and Nexus devices. Just waiting to make an intelligent decision until they're out with reviews and prices.

Hey Apple, why don't u sue Samsung for being more successful than U!!!!!!!!

They already have in a way. I think a similar argument was part of their defense against Samsung. Basically saying ppl bought a specific Samsung phone thinking it was an iPhone.

Not so much suing them for being more successful, but claiming lost sales. Which still blows my mind when every new iPhone has outsold the previous one. What sales where lost?

I love it.
Pebble blue one, looks pretty gorgeous to me.
Build quality seems great also.
Screen is not as bright as my xperia's, but the black and contrast levels more than make up for it..it's also much easier on the eyes.
Anyway, the phone works like a dream.
I have a case on it already but it's a classy, thin one with matte finish that doesn't seem to offer much protection.
I think I'll get a new one, this beauty needs to be safe :p

Thanks pal, i will :p
I had a little glitch with the folder opening/closing voice notification activating somehow..ended up having to look up online to how to turn it off..seems like some bug on Samsung's part.
Hope that's all the trouble i'll have with this great phone.

btw it's beyond me why you got thumbed down for that comment x)

Absolutely no doubt that A pple's boorishness has helped Samsung and of course Samsung's high quality strategic planning, all the various products helping each other's ascent. Samsung is there everywhere that you go.Washing machines,Fridge and all other electronic device of daily or premium use.

I love how all my comments get a thumb down, cuz they aren't anti apple. I'm for apple, android, tech, and choice. I'm not gonna post a certain way just to get the little green thumb. Apple rules android rules tech rules, people's right to buy what they want rules.

Yeah, I think the whole thumbs up/down thing is silly. I rarely give either, unless it's something overtly racist, or the like.

Ted if u notice, I'm a defender not a basher. I will defend android against bashing from iOS users and vice versa. I simply love both platforms without trying to get into the business side of things, cuz that's where it gets messy. I remember 5 things 1 I'm a consumer 2 I'm a techie 3 businesses want the most bang for the least buck 4 every business from apple to zenith (a to z) wants our money all of it they can get 5 Sammy is no different from apple at the root of what a business is and does. The base of any business is a demand equal to or greater than its supply. That creates a profit based on the businesses ability to produce premium priced products at bargain cost. Every company on earth that is allowed to profit uses that strategy. It's age old build low sell high. We the consumers and fans of these businesses tend to forget that. What r your thoughts bro?

This has nothing to do with tech or android/ iOS. The finishes that r happening n baseball r phenomenal Cabrera about to win the triple crown, Yankees/ oriels coming down to the last game, Oakland erasing 13 games on Texas. Mike trout and Cabrera battling for MVP. Baseball is awesome!!!

Yea....MLB post season is going down to the absolute wire. I love it. And I notice no team won 100+ games this year. I was wondering how a team with 87 wins won a division.

The surge on/around judgment day/week shows where a buyer's heart in general went. So as i had mentioned in past this was the best ever ad campaign that Samsung could have achieved out of 1 billion dollars (not yet paid). Samsung should say "Thank you Apple" as this proved to be an iNNOVATIVE Ad Campaign.

Second surge after IP5 release says it all :)

I don't care what side of the fence you're on. Apple sells their produces are crazy high prices. In the end, local wireless businesses suffer. We are told day in and day out not to sell as many iphones because we need to keep profits up. Great phone, but i hate the company. Our paychecks are less so theirs can be more!

Samsung Galaxy S3 alot better Value than the iPhone5,with Removable battery an Micro Sd Card Slot,that Accepts 64gb Micro sd Cards,plus a Larger Screen an Slimmer,Apple over Price there Smartphones an because of there name being Popular with certain people,they think anything they Create an Release it will be popular an can get away with Over Value Prices,Samsung now becoming more Popular so Apple have to go to Court to stop betting them

The SGS3 is a far better phone so this should come as no surprise.
