Same look as every Samsung Galaxy and Nexus released to date--plastic and cheap look for a "Flagship phone"...I bet the signal strength will be 1 bar also...Nothing special....it will be $300 on VW only to be reduced to $199 a month later.

It's a good update. but I'm not impressed. Gonna see how they cripple the US Versions. Summer launch goes right in line with iPhone 5 and iOS 6.0. Let's see who is the king of smartphones in 2012.

If he doesn't like the phone, then he doesn't like it. Leave the dude alone. LIke you said before, it's a choice. He made a choice to get the iPhone and didn't like it. Just because you see it as gold, doesn't mean others will. Once again, like you said, choice.

You don't know he has it or not, and we could just leave it at that. Perhaps he thinks that it is crap because he simply just doesn't like it after owning it, if that the case, no explanation needed. Why ask the specifics when there's no point to defend it to someone who just doesn't like it.

69. Sniggly (Posts: 7038; Member since: 05 Dec 2009)


Why is he automatically trolling if he doesn't hate the phone?

You accept without question if someone hates Android after trying it; why is the iPhone so special?

I just had a guy last week come in and use an upgrade on a secondary line on his account and trade the iPhone 4S in for a Droid Razr because he hated it. And today a business contact I spoke with told me he hates HIS iPhone (despite being a Mac guy) and would rather have his own BLACKBERRY back, because the Blackberry handled attachments much better than the iPhone does.

Why is it necessary to give a reason when they simply doesn't like something. It's not like the reason will change your view or stand on iPhone.

because taco is the self appointed apple defender of the universe.. though we all know he couldn't actually even tech support it by himself.

if someone doesn't like android.. no matter what they say, taco takes it as bible. if they dare not like the iPhone they are a lying troll.

84. Sniggly (Posts: 7038; Member since: 05 Dec 2009)


So because he chose not to give you specific reasons and gave a hyperbolic response, he's trolling?

Maybe it's just given him that much of a negative impression, dude.

Your denialism is reaching a fever pitch, dude. You're acting just like how Gemini used to. That guy insisted that Android fans were all former Nokia Symbian users who would abandon it ASAP.

You, on the other hand, keep insisting that all of us supporting Android do so because of "brainwashing" by carriers we've all worked for.

While we can fathom that for some people, the iPhone is a better solution than what Android has to offer, you can't possibly fathom that anyone might simply like Android better than the iPhone on their own.

Seriously, you're like a Born Again Christian who insists that atheists are seduced and brainwashed by satan or some horses**t.

Let's leave remix out of this.

If I just came into an article and made that post saying it was s**t, but switched it to SGSII or another high end android phone wouldn't you question the comment and consider me a troll?

My reputation aside of course lol

Well, I always ask why. I do so in person too, if someone says one phone or another is s**tty when I'm engaged with them as a customer.

I'll only call troll (or say that the position is unjustified) if someone uses their experience with one or two crappy phones to declare that an entire company or operating system sucks.

And where did I mention Remix?

He's trolling?! Taco, you're the definition of a TROLL. LOL! Phonearena has been one of my favorite phone websites for about 3-4 years now and all I see you is over here at android articles just trolling away and saying that apple is king and android is " okay" or sucks in other words. Who cares if the guy doesn't like his Iphone? Who cares what he says? Don't be so sensitive. It's sad that you have to reaffirm yourself by saying " he doesn't even have the phone". LOL! God forbid he hates apple.
This is my first post ever by the way, but I just had to jump in after seeing this nonsense.

I see your point but seriously, why even jump in if you "know" the guy is trolling? Do you like just giving in to trolls? You're not Captain Apple. You don't need to defend Apple every time someone says something bad about it. And you maybe right about barley posting on android articles, but I read them all time and I find you alot saying something negative about it or arguing with someone about how apple is king. With all due respect man, Why can't you just except that Apple and Iphones are GREAT but Android is just better? lol. And I guess that the new market share of smartphones don't mean much to you either. Looks like people are starting to "wake up". Wouldn't you say so? lol

Why does android have to be better? Why can't you accept that it's not better and it's personal preference. Some people like iTunes some don't. When we look at data iPhone customers have higher satisfaction rates, lower return rates, higher loyalty rates.

So better for who? Maybe for you android is better.

People aren't waking up it's just android is much cheaper and floods the market. Apple is going after profit and Google after market share. They're both winning as Google is leading in market share and Apple had 80% of smartphone profits last quarter.

Well, this is actually a reasonable post. While I still think Android offers more for the money invested, Taco is doing his best to be equitable here (instead of the usual "ANDROID SUCKS AND IS A COPYCAT WAAAAAHHHHH!!!!!!!")

stealing my talking g points that I've shoved down your throat over n over as u denied it.. while throwing in half truth's. well at least your getting marginally better as a troll.

apple has 2/3rds of its line up at $100 or less and is setting up camp at wallmart and target. you more expensive arguement went out the window a long time ago. as far as flood the market, the iPhone is more availible and cheaper than ever before while still losing market share

having 20 different units available increases choice... but it doesn't mean its going to sell better. people chose android because they find it is a better system. iOS matches it at all pricepoints and nearly all availibility, so the only thing left is OS preference.

Ok. First off, Personally I think android is better. I only say that because Android can do everything iOS can and more. But maybe you're right, I shouldn't say " better" maybe I should say "more dynamic". And you're right, it's a personal preference. But I wish you would just practice what you preach with this "peaceful" post of yours. You post so much stuff saying Android copied iOS and you bash android...You know you do. ( doesnt the iphone have a notification center pulldown thing? I wonder where that came from. I can go on and on...) As I said, practice what you preach and if you say "its a personal preference", don't question someone when they say they hated it. That right there my friend, is his personal preference.
Let me ask you, why all this hate for Android? ...with all due respect of course.

-Taco said android battery Suck Like hell
-Taco said everything Google does is copy apple

-Nothing android droid is interesting.

Let's see, if he has an iPhone, then most likely he's with AT&T. To get the SG3, he'll either have to get the phone when it's out on AT&T or buy the international one full price unlocked. I still don't see your point of full price, AT&T offers One X for 199, T-Mobile offers One S for 199. Not to mention the 4S 16GB also sells for 199 on AT&T.

I agree that he made a poor choice by picking the iPhone, because he didn't know whether or not he will like it. I guess he just assume he'd like it. However, I don't see what point you're trying to make pricing wise...

Maybe I'll be the only one to say this but from a design perspective, the Galaxy S 2 looks better than the S 3.(notice notice didn't say it looked ugly) But the features and software on the Galaxy S 3 are going to make this the device to own. Good stuff by Samsung.

Yeah, like APPLE, the design maybe getting somewhat stale...I believe we are all used to seeing what is coming out year after and it seems the designs chances only slightly.
But, Samsung did get creative with the Captivate, when you compare it to the non U.S. version, and perhaps there will be some slight visual alterations to the SGS3 U.S. version

huh, I saw some close up photos of the phone. From the front it looks close to the previous model, but the edging of the phone is gorgeous. The specs are nothing spectacular, but then again, we are spolied with lots of phones being announced. It has good, high-end, Android-like specs. The big changes seem to be the phone capabilities.
