10 Million phones preordered? This phone is going to widen the gap between Android and all others. $200 on contract will sound real good, too bad I can't wait that long to get my contract renewed.

People are sooo dumb... Ever since i got the SGS2, on everyone asking me "Oh, is that the S2?" there are at least two that say "Oh, you have an iPhone" :) And this is not about the apearance, it's about Apple's marketing making them "the ultimate smartphone" when it is everything but... And i don't have to tell you, when i say "No it's a Samsung", half of them say "Woah, look at that screen" and the sheep half just say "Meh..."

All right let's get this thing straight once and for all, right now iphone does not stand a chance against GALAXY S III ,iphone is just for imorrons that don't know about technology and think they are cool or at least they are going to look cool having one,GALAXY SIII is 100 times better than icrap.

Wrong! As a Fandroid, Here I am trying to not buy an iCrap iPhone, because I hate that the iPhone don't have an expansion slot or removable battery. Hence the main reason as a Mac owners of everything except the iCrap iPhone that I never wanted to buy. Now GSIII and HTC are doing just the samething like the iCrap iPhone, no removable battery or expansion slot. OK if I'm gonna have to chose from basically no option anymore, Then I'll bite the bullet and get the one with the best ecosystem, and I hate to say this "iPhone". But deep down I really want to continue with my Android phone, however a deal breaker for me is having that extra battery in my pocket so I can just swop in my busy life, I don't have time like those iPhone headless chicken to look all over town for a plug, then waste time to sit and wait to juice up. The new trend of Android are gonna be dead with many Mac user who the Android for the FACT of NO! expansion slots and removable battery. Window user you guys will be just fine, Just talking about Mac user and Haters of iPhone, But LOVE Apple ecosystem, because it is better in every which way.

Plus if I'm gonna be force to use phone with no removable battery or slot expansion, because this is the new market it seems with the Android devices coming out. Try to force user to use cloud storage and use up data like crazy. I will switch to the iCrap iPhone because at least the have a apple genius bar I could go to with problems. Unlike with Android devices. So Android seem like you pushing your Mac user to the arms of Apple to complete our gadgets.

Galaxy Y is a decent phone actually. It runs the bare essentials like Whatsapp and Facebook quite well.
