The Samsung Galaxy S III has not been announced. What are you talking about? There might be a updated Samsung Galaxy S II that was just announced so it will come out soon but not in a couple of weeks & it just slightly better nothing to be upset about. It’s an update not a successor like you said! That is life, technology moves what you buy today will be obsolete tomorrow unless you are Apple, then you will have to suffer with an antenna issue until the next iPhone comes out!

Obsolete how? Screen is still better than anything else except for the sgs2, its jusy as fast as any dual core, camera is up at the top with the best, battery completely oblitorates any android, mail client is error free, keyboard is great, app support still the best, accessories and docks of all kinds, best replacement and customer service even without a receipt and sound quality kicks the crap out of my sgs2!

don't get me wrong I absolutely love android that's why I've actually had was the last 2 and a half years, however, mindless bashing of apple is getting ridiculous. I honestly think android fans are the most insecure type of fans out there.

What are you talking about? The iPhone 4 was never the best, the HTC Evo 4G was a better phone with a 1 GHz processor, bigger screen, 4G, & it could do "Face Time" without Wi-Fi. Then came the Samsung Epic 4G & the rest of the Samsung Galaxy S phones, then came the Droid's & so on & so forth. The iPhone is not as fast as the world’s most powerful phone the Samsung Galaxy S II. bucky I don't know what you are smoking but you need to pass that to the left please! lol Apple to this day STILL doesn't have a dual-core phone & Android manufactures are putting the final touches on their quad-core chip sets. In early 2012 quad-core phones are going to become a reality. I am sorry but I think it's comical that you can say that the iPhone 4 is just as fast as a dual-core. lol Very funny joke!

Show me a video where the iphone gets smoked in a speed test opening and starting apps. You make the mistake of thinking hardware is everything! software must match hardware perfectly and thats why i respect that os and will likely return if the screen gets a little bigger. Its androids fault it requires a high spec dual core to get as close to apples in smoothness.

the evo 4g doesnt have anything as integrated, easy and clear as facetime. Even my sgs2 doesnt match it. The bigger screen is definitely up to the user. I personally think 4 is the sweet spot.

I guess not having true multitasking makes a smartphone have perfect software right? You isheep are such s**theads. Please look at the faults of your iphony pieces of crap. Then look at real smartphones. Heck, even wp7 is better than it right now.

the reason ios is smooth is due to hardware acceleration,that is why a lot of androids lag because they have no hardware acceleration...its why also the gs2 seems to be the only android phone that is smooth and does not lag because samsung implemented hardware acceleration into android themselves...ICS will be bring hardware acceleration so pretty much all phone will be just as smooth as the iphone/gs2.

dont worry about the iphone 5 you are not a consumer.... worry about Android phone getting the ICS on time and that your android keeps working after 6 months... let us worry about the iphone5..

Yeah why not have a low key release, would be easier to get your phone launch day if there wasn't a giant hooplah surrounding it. Just do your research quietly and go get your phone launch day.
Big Hooplah means too many people not enough phones.

I agree. Without SJ it's going to be one boring keynote. Watch TC speak on several occasions in previous keynotes and you will understand. That man is no public speaker.

What do you expect a-hole? when they released your single core super boring iPhone 4, dual cores are already up. Apple is so innovative arent they. So iFags like you are iDiots.

There were zero dual core phones in June of 2010. In fact iPhone was at the top of the food chain specs wise when it was released.

Couple months later dual cores were released, and for the record, iPhone was not on top of the food chain back in june 2010, HTC EVO 4G was.

So which was the first dual core and when was it launched?

Evo had same specs as iPhone. 1gh processor.

iPhone 4's 1Ghz processor is underclocked. Everybody knows that. And EVO 4G had a hdmi out, better cameras and a kickstand for kicking iPhone's ass.

The evo was not..
the Evo runs on a craptastic Snapdragon S1 processor. It wasnt even top of the line when it was released.

Taco is right. The iphone4 was (almost) top of the heap with specs when it came out as it shared the same specs as the galaxyS, except with the older GPU. The hummingbird processor is king of the single core chips. There is no debate on that.

the better phones to get were phones with the OMAP3 as you didn't have to modify it to get the real Hummingbird performance.

in my eyes it went.

EVO 4G
iPhone 4
Droid X
Epic 4G
Droid 2
Vibrant


single core phones that came out after dual core phones were announced don't count like the Thunderbolt, Droid Charge and the Infuse 4G.

thump3r,
the vibrant was still a strong device without the EXT4 fix. as far as gaming FPS benchmarks and such it blew any snapdragon out of the water.. and still does. i get better FPS on the hummingbird than the S3 snapdragon does in the sensation.

the ext4 fix was mostly for file system stuff and making the rest of the chip run well, but the GPU was the most powerful with or without the fix. :)

yeah, i know it is but it doesn't beat an OMAP3 because you get pretty much a Hummingbird with the EXT4 out of the box. Motorla's drivers just messed with the benchmarks.

technically, It probably wasnt, but in the eyes of many people, the Evo was.. the SGS by that time had a lot of software issues and the iPhone 4 had a lot of cellular reception issues. Evo had a battery life problem though, but most phones has so its not that dissapointing.
