After quad core, WHATS NEXT? They really can't go any higher then quad core can they or most important, do they REALLY need to go any higher then quad core. After quad core, they should just focus on how to maximize the phone to its full power with software and features and not just hardware. Since I got my Photon 4g in October, my next upgrade isn't to June of 2013, gets me wondering what will be out then. LoL

I'm actually surprised that there wasn't anything mentioned about 2Ghz processors, I still remember back in early 2011 that Samsung promised 2Ghz phones by 2012.

Oh I'm sorry, I didn't know Fanboys are so touchy. Get the facts right, I'm a ex owner of SG2.

Speaking of getting facts straight. Fanboy? WTF? LMFAO. I don't give a rats arse about any particular phone or manufacturer.

Speaking of touchy, unless you time traveled into the future and bought the SG3 and then returned to the present and commented on lag. I wasn't adressing you, I said anyone. So don't take it personally. There may be a lagging moment or two on the SG3. What some consider lag is just OS stutter, that will still occur on a few more.Galaxy releases, due to memory and processing. Even when Octo. cores arrive. There will still be idiots who will still insist on devices lag, cuz they're to asinine to know better.

P.S. I've owned an Omnia II and a Galaxy Nexus for 2 weeks, before returning it. What is your point about a past Sammy phone you owned?
I guess if it's a contest, my 2 trump your 1.

very rare occasion almost zero lag, S2 is doing very good since it has 1gb ram. I say S3 wont have that problem 2gb ram.

"overpower computer " NO WAY.

Not even close. Just because a phone have quad core does not mean that it is anything close to a computer. An intel core duo 2 is still faster then the newest quad tablet or cell phone. The core i series is many time faster then anything a cell phone has.

that comment came from a complete lack of understanding in technology.

might as well say a pinto can go toe to toe with an S-2000 because they are both 4 cylinder cars.

Quad core can't beat windowsphone.
Why don't you guys get it its not about the processor.
For example its the big show(android/quad core) vs the rock(windows phone) yeah i know the big show is bigger(processor) but can he beat the rock's strategic game plan/mind(software).
Not easily.

Made me giggle, Jericho... But I am not sure a wrestling analogy was the best way to go on that argument.

Besides, this is great news for Galaxy Series fans. Let them have the post.

Given Microsofts track record w/ security exploits. I could care less if it beats any phone on the planet. They push products, w/ security being an afterthought. I'll stick w/ a "slow"(LOL) Android running trusted dev. roms, so I can control who and what effs up my phone.
