A dual-core 1.2GHz TI OMAP 4460 processor is under the hood with 1GB of RAM aboard. 16GB of native storage is aboard and the phone has 4G connectivity over the carrier's HSPA+ pipeline.

Yeah but 3 years with 1 phone? I guess they will also be paying the ETF, so they're really getting screwed, unless they can upgrade for a reasonable amount? I'm not familiar with their policy

why do americans find it necessary to critic what other nations are doing. its actually smart to upgrade the phone every 3 years rather than 2. in fact we seem to upgrade every year. its great because we have the latest phones but it really only benefits the manufacturers and cell phone provider. its rediculous that verizon is charging 300 plus dollars for a 2 year contract. 200 should be tops. but verizon is a crooked company trying to recoup the money that isn't being generated by the iphones. if you look at the msrp prices for the phones in past and compare it to now it hasn't changed that much. the only difference is verizon had jacked up the prices we pay outright to get the latest phones. 299 is rediculous, and be tied to an increasing 2 year contract. in the meantime the phone becomes obsolete or outdated in 2-3 months?

You can get a new phone by paying the remainder of your plan, $10 times how many months left on your phone, and the price of a new phone u want with 3 year contract. Example; 12 months left on a plan and you want a Galaxy SII X, $10x12=120, Galaxy SII X is $50 with a 3 year, 120+50=$170 for the new phone. You can do this at any time you want.

At least this phone will still be a viable option for 2 years coming. The 3rd year.. that's a stretch.

Driven by the Google's browser, driven by Network carriers with offers and installments and a new name for OS, samsung is trying to stand in the smartphone market. It has never been able to push any attractive smartphone with a fabulous technology. Samsung androids just have a Google browser with a bold looks phone. The story of samsung lies with the 15 million users crying for not get any update later. Also the device has limited processing capacity. So if you are a smartphone user and wants to be in the race with the latest technology then samsung androids is the worst choice.
