Hmmmm. With a name like Sherlock Holmes you think you'd have better powers of deduction than "what I saw on eBay...."

Here in the States I've seen plenty of Galaxy S phones. Those have seriously been the most popular Android phones I've seen with all their nuanced variants. Just in my group of friends and family I've seen 4 Sprint Epic 4G's, two T-mobile Vibrants, two T-Mobile Galaxy S 4Gs, one ATT Captivate, and one Galaxy Blaze 4G which I have to assume is considered a Galaxy S1 due to its naming even though it's closer to a T-Mobile Galaxy S2s internals...

Lol SGS3 cost more than the iPhone, you must be crazy to claim that the plastic ugly phone is cheaper

It's not cheaper, it just costs the buyer less, more money value.
And the looks are personal reference, no it's not ugly.

it is more expensive, but not overpriced..
when something is overpriced, means that it is priced waaaayyy above the justified price of the product, which in iPhone case, should be around $200 off contract rather than $500..

yes, the galaxy is expensive, but look at it this way: quad-core processor/very powerful dual core with LTE, relatively huge battery, large screen with HD resolution, 128GB memory potential with USB Host/OTG support for even more memory/peripherals, 1.9Mp front camera with 720p video for chat.

do the iPhone have all of that? and why is it priced in the same level as the SGS3? that's called overpriced.. just like beats headphones are..

I'm pretty sure this phone will easily break 40-50 million unit sales after a year.. The upcoming iPhone 5 will not be as big hit as iPhone 4s interms of sales anymore, trust me.. Galaxy s3 has already envade the US market, as well as HTC One series.. And the upcoming G-Note 2 will babyshake the upcoming iPhone..

40-50 million sales is a big ask for any phone.

It is not.. 40 million is plausible, i'm not sure about 50 million, but this phone will sell like crazy.. It's still not close to iPhone interms of popularity & sales, but it's slowly closing the gap..

Lol! I love the use of the word "babyshake" in reference to the Galaxy Note vs iPhone.

not really sure, but i think this year is the year where the tide will turn for android.. and i have a feeling that iPhone will start falling down.. even here in Singapore, where majority used iPhone (8 out of 10), is now starting to see this trend, many people i saw during roadshows are trading in their iPhones for the SGS3.. and now i can see that 6 out of 10 are using either SGS2, Note, or SGS3.. and only 2 using iPhone..

I agree, but this ugly phone outsells HTC One X in just over a month.. I found an article that HTC One X just barely surpassed the 10,000 unit sales since it was released..

...and we know why. Its the uninspiring sense UI and old style design. Their R&D has gone to the s**tters.

Haters said that the original Droid was ugly as sin too. Same with the DROID X. A esthetics aren't universal.
