Waiting for iPhone users comments saying that this is an analyst's report, not an official one. Get real, The Galaxy S3 and the Note 2 is more than an answer to any iPhone Apple is about to release.

Gotta love it when a heinous lawsuit backfires.

The Galaxy S3 and Note 2 will dominate the market and no apple lawsuit will stop it :)

I'm sorry, but this is actually f**king funny as hell. Granted, it's not necessarily indicative of an actual, larger trend, but the ruling has pissed people off. Just like with the Evo LTE and the One X, people were outraged that bulls**t little software features were all Apple needed to try to ban devices.

This makes sense. Afterall, the galaxy S3 is a far superior phone to the iphone 4S.

those who are talking about customer satisfaction, I am a iPad 2 user and I am not satisfied. So much lack of features, what the hell is wrong with DLNA for iOS? You CANNOT play any video or slideshow from your iOS device to any wireless enable TV or what about remotely performing many tasks from the PC which are only done from the device in iOS? Have you heard of AirDroid? Well the features are endless. But I think people with less technical necessity or knowledge should choose iPhone over Androids as they have less features and all are fed with spoons

Well I have not even discussed about the commonly missing features like bluetooth file transfer, multiple library sync as they have some reasons, but I just cannot put a full stop to this list. It just goes on and on and on......

Good time to sell it, and use the money for a Windows 8 device
