Samsung Galaxy S III release date is set for May 29th, June for USA
The Samsung Galaxy S III release date is sooner rather than later - the S III will launch globally on May 29th with HSPA+. 

Separately, a 4G LTE version it will come to the US, Japan and Korea later on this summer. Samsung has clarified that for the US, the release date will actually be in June.

Samsung is staging a huge first appearance on store and carrier shelves for the Galaxy S III as it will arrive on 296 carriers in 145 countries across the globe. Not a bad start for the most anticipated handset so far this year now, is it?

Let's see what the benchmarks say. Specs on paper are one thing.

you and me both.. that way on the off chance we get short changed with crapdragon again, I can just order an unlocked international. thats the only reason I didn't get the sgs2 international .. I can happily give up high end 4g, but in need at least 7.2mb 3g. I can't deal with edge.

Google has been responsible for the vast majority of Android development. When's the last time Siri, the beta product, got an update? Apple did almost nothing with Siri except, according to the Woz, make it worse.

Siri got an update in March. So Apple has done zero development with Siri?

Hmmm

My apologies. They added a language. I take it that being able to speak to Siri in Japanese has been incredibly useful for you, no?

Honesty, even though Apple used the same design for the second year, I found the design feel a little timeless. It doesn't seem to get old. I don't use a iPhone, just saying =)

sigh you make us fans of android look bad. Nothing special about this phone, it's a nexus with a 8mp camera.

Cupertino is probably laughing right now.

104. remixfa (Posts: 13902; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)


its quite a bit more than a nexus with a bigger camera.

and cuppertino is the place where they sold the iPhone4 for 18 months and then started selling the EXACT same phone with voice recognition and an upgraded processor. that will always be the standard for lazy minimum upgrading by a company. the exynos sgs3 is a substantial upgrade in more ways than not

As far as the hardware goes, what does it have that could be considered a major upgrade ?

posted on 04 May 2012, 16:00

137. remixfa (Posts: 13902; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)


you dont think a 50%+ upgrade in actual horsepower, + a half inch larger screen, + going from a low rez screen to the highest available is a major upgrade?

if you dont consider that a major upgrade,then there has never been a major upgrade on any phone yet.

I don't think going from Exynos duel core to S4 is major. The US version should be quadcore. Quad was supposed to be out last fall & after all the bs I'm still waiting. The screen is larger. But pentile, with a lower ppi than Nexus. Except for the resolution, The screen on the non pentile, sg2 is better. On my Nexus, when the screen is supposed to be black, you can see plenty of discoloration. Looks Awful. & the 2011 Note (thats only 1/2 inch larger) has better resolution. Not to mention the design & 8mp cam. If Scamsung announced up front that the sg3 would have a S4 processor with 4.8 inch 720 pentile display & 8mp camera at 8.9 mm. I doubt they would have gotten anyware near this much coverage/hype.

Get this phone to the U.S. as soon as possible before the iphone 4GS arrives...maybe some people with the iphone will wake up and realize that they can do better.

Wow, brainwashing is the goal of APPLE marketing...yeah, huh, Android provides a plethora of choices of phones while APPLE does not. Android's high end phones are shown to be better than APPLE's top phones. Heck, if it were not for their sales in CHINA, APPLE would be experiencing lower than expected sales.
Hey, my wife has the iphone and loves it. Yes, it does drive her crazy with the issues it has, and my kids complain of force closings of apps on their 3GS and ipods...but they still love their devices...for now.

I rarely even post on android articles. Don't really care because iPhone fits my needs.

Not talking about analyst here, talking about actual numbers. It's quite clear that Samsung won. 44 million to 37 million, it's a no brainer. 37 million is per Apple press release.

95. taco50 (banned) (Posts: 5506; Member since: 08 Oct 2009)


Samsung didn't announce numbers so it was an analyst from one form that came up with the 44 million. That's just a guess. Another firm guessed Samsung shipped 32 million. Try reading the articles and then get back to me.

I read the press info from Apple, which will be the most reliable for Apple's numbers. Apple announced selling 37.04 million phones in the last quarter.

I've also read IHC's report on 32 million Samsung to 35 million Apple, they didn't post any information or tracker to show how they get their numbers. Other than that, the report was posted on 4/26 before Samsung's Q1 financial report was announced. Without the announcement of Samsung Q1 financial report, how could IHC's report be close to the actual numbers?

While IDC which provided 42 million Samsung to 35 million Apple on 5/1 looks at everything from local vendors to import records, component supplies, quarterly financial report and the list goes on. Looking at the amount of sources they use for their estimate, I would say IDDC's number would be more corret. Comparing the report to actual numbers, the marginal error is off by about +/- 2 million and would still put Samsung on top.

Let's say if Apple posted 40 million in their press info, then it'll be most likely that Samsung lost. Unfortunately that's not the number that Apple posted.
