While i just checked out an "unbiased" review vid showing LCD vs Amoled
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z6TeTinT7A4

i can agree that its a matter of preference I like the whites better on LCD and dont like the blueish tint and dimer screen on amoled when viewing whites and since almost every page on the internet seems to be white I find amoled doing no justice when compared to LCD.......

But these numbers you keep spitting out is really making you look stupid because by your definition, sales mean everything....and in that case the iphone is indeed the best smartphone out.........but many will disagree.....yes if you add up how many people do not like the iphone in the world or rather get an android or windows phone instead, then you will find that even PA, Techno buff, Android authority ARE IN DEED WRONG.....but according to them, since they sold millions of phones......it must be the best when its simply not the case.... They're are many flaws the iphone has as well, one of them being total lack of customization and freedom of OS

SuperAMOLED vs SuperLCD, both made by Samsung. You just contradict your previous comments about Samsung displays are garbage. LMAO!
Also the SuperAMOLED panel of the GSIII is quite old now, why don't you check out the one on the GNOTE II before using the "blueish/dim" arguments? Just click on my links above.

Dude, iphones are rated against iphones. That's why the iphone 5 scored 9 here. Droids are rated against Droids. WPs against WPs. And that's also why there's comparison tests. =) Based on all the comparison tests between the GSIII and other Droids, the not-so-young GSIII won. Even against the recent beast, Optimus G. If you don't believe me, again you can verify my claims by yourself. The only match where the GSIII lost is against its big brother, the GNOTE II!

So you're telling me that your POV is better and more accurate than all these professional tech reviewers? OH WOW, then what are you doing here, arguing with me? Aren't you supposed to be writing reviews on these professional sites?

maybe i should be writing reviews because i would try my best not to be BIASED as most people seem to be........Usually when im wrong its because im un informed about certain things, which is why i came to agree with you on a certain point in my last post..... but i tend to always shy away from filling my post with "emotoins" like some people......hint hint (G2aboe) but thats another story......and this whole thing started not because i dislike samsung, Even i cant deny their success but I also know how someone becomes empowered to be that "top selling company"

Its the same old process, steal lie and cheat to gain your way to the top......the name Apple ring any bells?

So once again i did not start this arguement because i am a "hater" of samsung, like you seem to think........But when people start boasting about they're the best simply because sales! Then I got to say that is simply not true........Sales are a significant sign of success but does not earn you the tittle of "Best" when a bigger portion of the world seems to think different from you and G2abo5e above.....

Am I wrong or you were the one who tried to suggest that Samsung copied WP on the article where flipboard was featured on the GNOTE II screen? Aren't you the one who claimed that the S-PEN is useless? So you're telling me that ALL those professional tech reviewers who stated that the GSIII/GNOTEII are the best phones atm are biased and it's your POV that matters? You're obviously the biased one, dude.
Seriously grow up!

ahhh no there was a picture that made me think at first glance the new flipboard thing samsung all of sudden comes out with, look like the tiles on windows phone bro........and the s pen? while obviously "use FUL" to the note 2........it is indeed a gimmick to gain sales for such a device.....and yea most of them are biased sorry just the truth........not all but alot of them are.............and being "grown" is telling the truth not hiding behind emotions so maybe im not the one that needs to "grow up"....

My goodness. And Samsung sells more than just one phone. Considering that, its an impressive feat.
Looks like an early Christmas for the Koreans.

The GS III is a great phone. No denying that simple fact. Dogs like dog food that tastes great.

The real interesting thing is going to be how well the Note II sells. I hope Sammy beats the 20 m goal that has been set for the Note II.

No way they sell that many, not in a reasonable amount of time anyway, the Note is the very definition of a niche product

No way they sell that many? The original Note has sold over 10 million in less than a year & it wasn't even close to widely available as the Note II will be. The more likely statement is, "how can they NOT sell that many." People keep calling it a "niche" product, but how many phones other than the iPhone & the Galaxy S series can you name that sell over 10 million in a year? ***crickets*** Yeah...that's what I thought. Niche, my ass.

3 million in 37 days. That's without Verizon or AT&T yet. Did you even bother to do any research before saying something so silly?

@crankyd00d, Niche product? Are you stupid? If 10 million sold is a niche product, then almost everything is.

They've already sold 3 million and it still hasn't been released on t mobile, at&t and Verizon. It'll be over 10 million by the end of the year. Solis post though, you seem to know your tech........

Just cause they're selling millions of phones doesnt mean its not a niche phone dood.......the numbers just show you how many "niche" people there are in the world! and like or not, but what's 10 million to the total population of the world?? that number seems really small to the billions of people that have "actual" smart phones and not this phablet of a device....

What you just said makes absolutely no sense. I think you might need to look up the definition of niche. We're not comparing Note numbers to the population of the world. We're comparing it to the sales of other phones. If the Note series is truly as niche as people say it is, then I'm not sure what word I could use to describe the miniscule sales of Sony & HTC's phones as of late. Maybe I should just coin a term. Ultraniche sounds about right.

what i was trying to say was that 10 million people that are buying this phone is a really small number compared how many people DID NOT BUY THIS PHONE!! and what those numbers you are so "entrusted" into fails to reveal to you is that, you can almost guarentee, those same people that bought a galaxy S3.........bought a note 2 lol........those 10 million people are apart of samsungs fan base its nothing compared to how many people, once again, Do not buy it.........If sales where everything then we can most definitely conclude that the iphone is indeed the best phone in the world, when we have people that would argue you down that thats not the case.......

So while you are constantly braggin that sammy is the best because of sales and htc and sony are not because they're not selling as well, i think you should know that a portion of the world is not the entire world.............in other words.......speak for your self dude

As much as I would LOVE to argue with you again, it's pointless to argue with someone who makes absolutely no sense. Speak for myself...about what? Please don't answer that. I really don't care.

You're right dude! Just ignore his BS.. He's simply butthurt about the fact that Samsung is doing extremely well and its phones are killing the competition(Sony in front line).

it makes alot of sense you're just to pridefull to admit it......a portion of the world is not the entire world remember that......thats why "some" people with enough money to buy an iphone, a GS3, and A One X still choose to buy a Sony.......Sorry man you wanted the truth and there it is.......
