We're really all just thumbs downing Taco because we all don't like him. He could one day praise Android and the most zealous Android fanboy would still thumbs down him for his past comments. Lol. Just like Anonymous, We never forget.

In other words fandroids use the thumbdown button as their toy and and not based on its comments itself... thats pretty dumb.. but not surprise

if this phone had a more premium feel unlike all the other samsung phones and didn't have its goofy/plain design, it probably would have done even better.

It's kinda weird though because last week many agreed that this phone was slightly a disappointment. lol, to each his own i guess.

Man look at that pay discrepancy. Ethics vs slavery.

You do realize Korea is a first world nation and China isn't it. This has absolutely nothing to do about ethics and slavery.

every time you use that as a come back, your completely wrong and have no argument, which is why you resort to idiotic insults that have no basis in reality.

Isnt it time for you to run along with your tail between your legs like you do every time you've been proven wrong? (which is daily)

You just used no argument and instead resulted to personal attacks as usual.

Ironic don't you think?

An American company (Apple) is outsourcing, because China's labor is cheaper, while our own nation's manufacturing is suffering.

Sounds like bad ethics to me.

Most of Samsungs factories are in the phillipines, which is not a 1st world country, and still pays double and triple what apple pays... with benefits like health care and paid vacations. 2 things you will not likely ever see at an apple-foxconn plant.

Ironically, Samsung actually has a fab in texas to build parts for Apple.

Um..wait..fastest selling gadget of all time?
THIS IS HUGE!
I thought no phone can come close to iphone, and now we have a single android topping even the iphone4S pre-orders?!!?
Wow, just wow. An incredible upset there.

For the first time in history, one android phone will outsell the iphone in the quarter.
(i'm figuring the SGSIII should go to about 30 million in the period vs around 25million 4S's)

um..wait no.2, lol..if kinect is the previous fastest selling gadget(8 million in 60 days), what about the iphone 4s and it's 30+ million in 90 days?
iphone is still untouchable, i'm afraid

The iphone sold less than 5 million launch weekend. The SGS3 hasnt even launched yet, this is just preorders and its already at almost 10 million. If the enthusiasm keeps up for 90 days, its going to be well more than 30 million.
Before anyone starts any flame wars, let the phone actually launch first.. lol

it's pretty amazing considering the iphone (iOS) only has to compete against itself, while samsung has to compete against hundreds of android phones.

Good logic there buddy. iPhone doesn't compete with android????

I'm confused...

he is making the same point we have tried to get you to understand for years concerning single device sales. the top iphone has no competition.. if you want the top iphone, you have one choice. the top android phone has competition from all angles within android to split sales with, on top of competition from outside the OS. There is much more competition for an android sale than there is for an iOS sale.

If these numbers are true, they are nothing short of remarkable. I knew the iphone's single device sales fanboy bulletpoint would be overtaken soon, but I didnt think it would happen just yet. I figured it would be the SGS4, so surprise surprise if the sales hold up for the SGS3.

your response reminds me that you have no idea what logic actually is.

Can you please answer me one simple question? If i was an iOS fan and i wanted to buy an iOS smartphone, what choices would I have?
Cause I'm an Android fan and every time I want to buy a new high end smartphone I have at least 6 or 7 different devices to choose from! This is LOGIC!
