0. phoneArena 19 Jul 2012, 06:40 posted on

The Galaxy S III certainly isn't Samsung's strongest phone yet, as we've first heard about the manufacturer getting rid of faulty blue back covers, followed by a number of users discovering small cracks around the camera area of the white variant...

Any version of Android is better than iOS 6. iOS 6 sucks.

We've seen everything it has to offer already. Also, it pretty much is out yet. At least the beta versions.
It's the EXACT SAME OS FROM 2007. Do you even realize that?

I don't feel like arguing with idiots when I've made the same point over and over and they still don't get it.

Exactly. I have one and have not seen any cracks , scratches, etc. and I've let my little cousins play with the phone and its still in the condition as if it just came out of the box...

Before you judge the phone you should probably try it.

I bought the htc one x a while back after the galaxy s3 came out i decide to get it. When i got the phones side by side I found the build quality was a lot better on the one x. After a week of light use the samsung cracked almost just like the picture. So I will judge. Samsung's phones are made cheap!

Most of us have had or wanted iPhones before. I used to love Apple devices. Don't jump to conclusions, asswipe.

Nah. We're just intelligent consumers that don't go by what's popular and "cool," but what is actually the better product.

Yeah i jumped on the bandwagon when the first one came out. That's your opinion that it's the better product. You like the popular and "cool" galaxy 3, if I was into androids I would get the Xperia or htc phone.

A friend is an "advocate" for this device at Sprint and got one for free, and is not allowed to take it out of the store until july, so it hasn't been abused or dropped, or really even used at all. He has one of these on the left side of his phone.

I don't believe! The public has nothing good to say about the phone so they are finding cracks in the cover and bevel area to talk about since they don't have nothing negative about performance and other factors.

If I buy something I want it to be made well. That's my right. That's my money.

That is very bad. I looked at an S3 but have decided that I need the larger screen of the Note for what I want to do with it. I will put it in a Seidio Active case with a belt clasp. Saved my 9800 heaps.
