"The Samsung Galaxy S II has been the closest challenger that the Android platform has to the Apple iPhone in terms of unit sales and the sequel might even come closer to Apple's iconic device which is expected to undergo some major changes this year when the new model is launched, including a bigger screen size near 4 inches. That major refresh means that sales of the Apple iPhone 4S could slow down as we get closer to an expected launch of the 6th generation iPhone. Sales of the current model usually slump a few weeks before the release of the next model as potential buyers wait to see what features the new version will offer." ?????
How in the hell did this become an Apple article at the end? Mentioning a competitor, the current best seller, is one thing... this however detours into a different subject.

Well, when so much of the tech world becomes a drooling baby at the mention of the iPhone, you tend to work it into as many articles as possible to create more interest. Even when it's sort of out of place to name drop it, bring it up anyways, then run as far as you can with it.

People will always complain. I love my Samsung Galaxy S3 very much. I am happy, but still looking forward to devices coming out later this year too! As a Samsung fan, I am still curious about technology no matter where it comes from. So yes I am looking forward to the new Blackberry despite countless titanic stories, yes I am looking forward to the new iPhone despite many criticisms, yes I am looking forward to windows 8 products, and yes as always looking forward to new android devices as well from Samsung, Sony, HTC, Motorola, LG, etc. etc. etc.

In short, I love smartphones & tablets.

History has told us that Titanic will sink and fake copycat products like those in China, Korea won't last

You should probably go find an iPhone-crazy website and join their forum instead.. I think you'd fit right in.

If I get an SGS3 do I have to hack it to get custom skins etc? Or it already is good as it is?
Also, I really wish it has a camera shutter );

It is good as it is, but if you don't like it you can customize it. There is not really a need to hack it as Android is the most flexible OS as it is and there is very little functionallity added by rooting.

And Samsung's pruducts are the most flexible amongs Android smartphone (and tablet too).
No bootloader, quickly sharing the source code and the huge number of developers (which including some superiors like Supercurio)

What's wrong with you phonearena! This is the second time you delete a post of mine, all I said was that SGS3 wasn't cheap, it's a good value for the money and it isn't ugly.
What's wrong with that?!

don't confuse yourselves with shipment over units sold, carrier pre orders against units sold to end users, and prediction vs actual sales. samsung is really good in giving estimates ever since!

I really, really doubt they can sell 10 million. The GS3 offers not the best display, but it's with ridiculous size for a phone, a mediocre camera for a 2012 device, cheap-looking non-monoblock body and Android...no thanks.

I recommend Tucks Medicated wipes for that butthurt.

I wonder if the s3 will break the Nokia 1100's record.
