Last week the Samsung Galaxy S III’s release date on Verizon was moved from July 9th to July 10th. Verizon’s website has been changed yet again. Now it says the device will ship...

Wow so many SGS3 were sold that samsung can't keep up with production.

You're just bluffing yourself. A fail is still a fail
34. denied911 (banned) (Posts: 361; Member since: 31 May 2012)
yea, keep telling that to yourself.
9 million preorders :P
56. Dadler22 (Posts: 161; Member since: 11 Dec 2008)
why are you guys excited that your going to have the same phone as everyone else. 9 million pre-orders is like an iPhone
35. jellytime (Posts: 135; Member since: 05 Dec 2011)
Yes Nokia Lumia 900, A fail is still a fail.
Seriously JSern just because the S3 sold more than Lumia 900
doesn't mean that you have to comment s**t.

Dude stop posting articles about the shipping date its just based on how many devices have been pre ordered not when the device will actually launch which is what you have been implying or how your articles have been coming across to readers. I work for Verizon and I have been getting customers asking if the device is going to get cancelled due to delays because of articles like this.

Well, since the pre-order process has not ended, I suppose the ship date will just keep slipping out as more GSIIIs are pre-ordered. If enough phones get pre-ordered, I guess the ship date could slip out to XMAS? (Dunno)
Another thing that I heard 'unofficially', was that early pre-orders will get their phone around July 8 timeframe, while later pre-orders will have to wait. Stay tuned. I wonder if PA is going to be featuring a VZW GS III shipping pipeline article? Members could post when they get their GS III.

I live in Australia and have been enjoying mine for about two weeks now. It is by far absolutely the best phone I have ever used. and I have had every iPhone upto 4 (not 4S) and several androids...
Love this phone.
They won't wait till "Xmas" Samsung is a lot smarter than to let Apple steal market share.

don't know why people are excited about the US version where the INTL sgs3 kick its butt in just about every bench that existed. Yes the quad exynos is better than the S4- Yes the OC mali 400 is better than the adreno 225. It pathetic POS like the S4 that allows samsung to use last years parts and still beat it left and right. Of course the s4 barely lags because even the exynos 4210 in sgs2 was lag free...
5. DigitalBoy05 (Posts: 209; Member since: 04 Jun 2011)
cool so lets have all the people in north america hop across the ocean and live in europe so we can buy the ever so important quad core version and live with A**H**** like yourself.
7. USsgs3sucks (Posts: 3; Member since: 23 Jun 2012)
US version sgs3 sucks and so do YOU DIGITALBOY05 here i thumbed you down BWAHAHAHAHA
9. DigitalBoy05 (Posts: 209; Member since: 04 Jun 2011)
i care about a red thumb pointing down because?...
11. thedarkside (Posts: 652; Member since: 30 Apr 2012)
oh no a thumbs down. i bet hes completely devasted and probably wont sleep for days. you sure showed him. idiot.
12. PhoneArenaUser (Posts: 5498; Member since: 05 Aug 2011)
"...wont sleep for days."
For nights. :D
+1 For you, for better sleep. :)

Wow, how sad and uninteresting is your life that you made an account specically to troll US GS3 owneres? Do...do phones REALLY mean that much to you? God damn, kid. God damn.
24. thedarkside (Posts: 652; Member since: 30 Apr 2012)
i thumbed you down because of your lack of intelligence.
25. carlos5593 (Posts: 27; Member since: 23 Jun 2012)
Haha you are just jealous because even though you have the quad core still have s**tty Internet Speed Haha LTE baby. Stop buffering hahaha
8. PhoneArenaUser (Posts: 5498; Member since: 05 Aug 2011)
You are so angry and disappointed that you even registered such username "USsgs3sucks".
Sad things. :(
14. Droid_X_Doug (Posts: 5993; Member since: 22 Dec 2010)
The USsgs3sucks identity will be obsolete in about 4 months once the leaks start about the GS IV. I wonder if they will then register with USsgs4sucks as their identity? I wonder if that would get them banned (multiple identities violation)? If it does (get them banned), that could be a good thing.
15. PhoneArenaUser (Posts: 5498; Member since: 05 Aug 2011)
I don't think that multiple identities would be a violation because multiple persons can use same IP address.
18. PhoneArenaUser (Posts: 5498; Member since: 05 Aug 2011)
I suggest don't cry for 'USsgs3sucks', in autumn here will be new phones. :)
55. Dadler22 (Posts: 161; Member since: 11 Dec 2008)
USsgs3sucks probably has a samsung charge.
10. tedkord (Posts: 8983; Member since: 17 Jun 2009)
The only benchmark that the Exynos beats the S4 in is external video, where V-sync is off. Otherwise, the s4 ties or edges it in everything, and kills it in battery life.
13. Martine (Posts: 102; Member since: 20 Oct 2011)
I will take everything but I wouldn't take that. You read the reviews again and edit you comment.
30. Mitchel (Posts: 228; Member since: 25 May 2012)
You're wrong.. Exynos beats S4 in almost every benchmark.. It's just the way it is.. Exynos is a power-house, S4 is overrated piece of s**t. Don't mess with the King.
39. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4250; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
Exynos is more powerful than the S4, but the S4 is still very powerful. Stop being so angry, I mean really, there's no reason for it
29. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4250; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
Snapdragon S4 doesn't suck. Yes, it's not as good as the quad Exynos, but it's still plenty powerful to run the GS3 thanks to it's 28nm architecture, and that 2 GB of RAM helps boost it along as well.
4. RORYREVOLUTION (Posts: 3101; Member since: 12 Jan 2010)
Lol Wasn't it Verizons catch phrase "the end of waiting"? =p
17. mikeguy1981 (Posts: 86; Member since: 23 Jun 2012)
Guess I shouldn't of just ordered one. I just pushed the day back. na just kidding but I cant wait for it to come in.
19. joey18 (Posts: 587; Member since: 20 Jul 2010)
Maybe is for new orders maybe mine came early
20. networkdood (Posts: 6330; Member since: 31 Mar 2010)
Well, I should be upgrade eligible by next June - in time for the SGS4 - hopefully quad core, too. But, if my receiving a discount means going to one of those family shared ripoff plans, then I will just save the dough and pay for it on AMAZON at no contract.
21. skymitch89 (Posts: 1263; Member since: 05 Nov 2010)
Wow, a "ship by" date means that those who have pre-ordered the device will get it by that date.
22. Wildmanfan (Posts: 238; Member since: 15 Jul 2010)
This is what bothers me: Verizon talks all this s**t about being the #1 company in the US for cell phones and how they are the most reliable network and all that but the reality is, they are proving themselves to be jackasses. Data speeds, they are getting their asses kicked by T-Mobile in benchmark tests. Then T-Mobile 1 ups them by releasing the G3 faster and earlier than VZW (with no delay by the way). Screwizon, it's like you mother f**kers knew early in the game that this was going to be the hottest pre-order phone. Why did you not have a backup plan for something like this? Before you know it, you are gonna push the phone back to 2013. If your the #1 company your not showing it. Just because you have more subscribers, doesn't mean your #1. I hope a company like Metro PCS destroys you and your bright ideas. And for all you jackoffs on this forum using knee pads to kiss Verizon's ass, you are no better because you promote their crap.
31. RORYREVOLUTION (Posts: 3101; Member since: 12 Jan 2010)
Lol when I found out that Verizon wasn't going to offer the SGS2 I had the same reaction. That's why I left Verizon and haven't looked back!
37. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5704; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
hm, something told me i hadn't seen the last of your obnoxious anti-Verizon flame posts. xD
Verizon's LTE network is being more adversely affected by the aggressive roll-out and the load of users it's accumulated. the same could happen to T-Mobile or AT&T in the near future. PCMag still found Verizon's LTE network to be the most reliable 4G network and their still pretty neck breaking speeds so i'm not complaining especially considering the field day Verizon is going to have with LTE-Adv having such a Market Saturated LTE Network. the GSIII was pushed back 2 days, so what? it's 2 freaking days, don't be such a baby. as for T-Mobile they launched the SIII quicker than everyone in the US, not just Verizon and it's just coming out in phases, it's not like you can just go to a T-Mobile store anywhere and just pick one up. AT&T isn't even getting a 32GB version and i don't see you flaming about that. man, i'm real sick of you.
40. RORYREVOLUTION (Posts: 3101; Member since: 12 Jan 2010)
Lol stop being such a Verizon fanboy bro I wasn't insulting you personally and yet you always have to freak out. Sorry I went with another carrier and happy about it.
45. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5704; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
wasn't even talkng to you bro. i don't care about what you do.
43. Wildmanfan (Posts: 238; Member since: 15 Jul 2010)
Hey Slapnuts, first of all, the last time I checked I live in a country called the UNited States of America and we live in a country with freedom. That means I am provided with the freedom of speech and everyone else is too. If you don't like what I have to say, you don't like reading my posts, well that's your f**king problem. You don't like me? Well f**k you.
I don't like the fact that you are on these forums talking s**t and acting like you know there is everything to know about cell phones. That you did that, and you did that for people and that you know it all. Do me a favor, why don't you crawl back into whatever the hell hole you came from and do the rest of the world a favor and SHUT THE HELL UP. If your sick of me, there's 2 things you can do about it: LIKE IT AND NOTHING.
46. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5704; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
i love how you conradicted yourself in the same post. i have an idea! how about you actually come back with intelligent things to say from now on instead of ridiculously stupid flame posts? :P
48. Wildmanfan (Posts: 238; Member since: 15 Jul 2010)
The only real flamer on here is you. Reality is, I don't like your cocky attitude because you think you know everything and there are jackasses like your boyfriend on post 47 who kisses your ass. I hate arrogant people like you. I got some news for you: The world doesn't revolve around you jerkoff. Just because there are people here who don't do as you say, doesn't mean you know everything and we should conform to you. You know why you don't like me? Because sucka, I speak my mind and I say what I gotta say and if you don't like that, that's your problem bro. I can't speak for everyone else but I will speak up because I will not stand for this crap. So bring it on, homey.
50. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5704; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
xD dude, who's the original poster in every one of these discussions we get into? i don't think i know everything. i know a lot and i'm not afraid to express that because i do a lot of research on commonplace topics here and i want to share proper knowledge with people. i especially don't think the world revolves around me. there's plenty of people on this site with respectable opinions like remixfa, snowgator and RORY here just to name a few. everyone is entitled to an opinion but most of the things you say are just completely irrational and i'm sure most people agree with me. look at your thumbs man, look at your thumbs. your opinions are clearly being challenged. at least i'm telling you why.
47. thedarkside (Posts: 652; Member since: 30 Apr 2012)
wildman, lay off the roids man... i meant steroids... not androids.
you should also try and get laid. it may calm you down a bit. no no no.... silly troll, not your hand. a women... thats real. and relax. dont get butthurt.
49. Wildmanfan (Posts: 238; Member since: 15 Jul 2010)
OMG, your right thedarkside, your absolutely right. You know what? I really apologize to you bro because I know your came here to defend your lovers honor and I should have spoken bad to hurt his feelings.
Oh yeah, your right, no hand. A woman right? Your 100% right. With that said, tell your mother I'll be over tonight and have change for a dollar. I'm getting laid tonight for sure.
Butthurt huh? I'm sure you said that because you can relate to that with your boy King. In actuality, maybe you should hurt your knees and your mouth too much tonight either ok? Have fun.
51. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5704; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
and you seriously think people should take you seriously? if you want to hurt me for being arrogant this isn't how you're going to be able to do that. you're gonna have to be intelligible, logical and rational. you're going to have to form points that negate mine all the time.
52. Wildmanfan (Posts: 238; Member since: 15 Jul 2010)
I don't give a damn if people take me seriously or not. I'm not here to win a popularity contest. But I'll tell you right now, I don't like your cocky arrogant attitude because you think you know it all. You think that everyone on this forum needs to conform to you and that what you say is the gospel truth. Basically the way you project yourself is this: I'm right, your wrong, and if you don't agree with me, your wrong and your the enemy. You don't believe me? Look at the past posts on how you talk negative to people who don't agree with what you have to say.
There are people here who believe in everything you say and they kiss your ass about being so "knowledgable" about everything when in reality your nothing but a gimmick. There's a huge difference about being intelligent and being cocky. Your cocky arrogant piece of s**t.
Let me tell you something you need to know: There are people here, I guarantee it, on these forums who can see through the bulls**t and they DO NOT agree with you. Like I said before, I can't speak for them and maybe they are too afraid to speak up or they don't want to start anything, but I will not let this stand. You know what you are? Your like a school bully no one wants anything to do with because you think you know everything and you talk and talk and talk. I have fought against people like you all my life and I will not put up with this. So do me a favor, and everyone else a favor, don't preach all this mess about rightousness and intelligence when you yourself are a walking contradiction. THE WORLD DOES NOT REVOLVE AROUND YOU.
53. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5704; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
i just shake my head at you Mr. Wildmanfan. look guy, i back everything i say up with cold, hard, FACT, if someone is saying something that is not consistent with known FACT i'm going to call them out because the readers of the comments have the right to know what's right and wrong around here that's not based on bias. if i'm wrong then PROVE. ME. WRONG. don't get upset with me and call me a bully because you can't limbo buddy.
57. Wildmanfan (Posts: 238; Member since: 15 Jul 2010)
Yo bro, who the hell appointed you the CNN of phonearena? You don't work here, man.
WHO THE HELL ARE YOU TO TALK? WHO THE HELL ARE YOU?
I don't given a damn if you know facts, history, data, or if your a damn android yourself. The fact of the matter is, your cocky arrogant attitude is pissing me off. People on here have to be subjected to this bulls**t. Knowledge is one thing buy your a self-centered arrogant mother F'er who quite honestly thinks that just because he does some reading, he's the self-appointed god of whatever. That doesn't mean squat.
Yeah, I'm dropping your punk card on the ground, and I'm gonna call you out on your conceited arrogant attitude. AND WHAT?
58. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5704; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
lol whatever man, you obviously have really strong opinions but just what are you going to do about it? it so happens i live in the US of A too. you have a problem with me? oh well. if you're wrong i'm going to call you out and i'm sick of you too so you can forget about me being cordial.
62. Wildmanfan (Posts: 238; Member since: 15 Jul 2010)
Yo bro, don't step to me about preaching all this rightousness and how your better than everyone else. I called you out, AND WHAT? Hey man, you put it out there and you mentioned that you are getting sick of me, well it's whatever then bro. Do me a favor though, tell your boyfriend defending your honor that it's not real manly to do a 2 on 1. Real tough guy right. You need to check your lapdog.
63. Wildmanfan (Posts: 238; Member since: 15 Jul 2010)
And here's the thing too. I call you conceited and cocky and you didn't even point that out which means your admitting that you are. So now everyone knows I just proved my case. BOOM!
67. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5704; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
if you would just be more rational i wouldn't be so hard on you. i can't tell him what to do. his opinion matters as much as mine. i don't care if someone has an opinion that has an actual, solid basis.
Ooo, real solid logic there broseph. looks like you might win the popularity contest after all huh? :P
59. thedarkside (Posts: 652; Member since: 30 Apr 2012)
still butthurt i see, i guess youre too much of a fan of wildmen.
61. Wildmanfan (Posts: 238; Member since: 15 Jul 2010)
First of all, learn how to spell and then come back to me with some sense of grammar. Second, Do me a favor: when you hear people talkin' and it has nothing to do with you, shut the hell up.
65. Wildmanfan (Posts: 238; Member since: 15 Jul 2010)
Honestly, I really don't have to do anything because your showing the phonearena forum that by you talking, you can't gramatically form a structured sentence in a correct format. That really says alot about your intelligence. Added to the fact that you like talking about dudes asses and wildmen, hey man, that's kinda sick homey.
By the way, that's really, really original of you to respond back with such innovative comebacks. I think that 2nd graders do the same in the playground.
66. thedarkside (Posts: 652; Member since: 30 Apr 2012)
oh man, my feelings hurt. that comment really got to me. i think i may go home and cry myself to sleep.
70. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5704; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
yeah, i don't know what he thinks he's trying to do right now. he must be really sensitive. xD
