You all are so entertaining! I use to be like you... Flawed... Then I became one with the Droid Charge-Prime in June.. Rooted, Rom'ed, GummyCharged, TSX'ed, Kerneled, EXT4'ed the file system.. Go Launcher EX'ed it.. And SETCPU'ed to a Rock Stable 1300 mhz Strong.. With 18-20 hrs battery time.. Thanks JuiceDefender.. Make a move.. And start enjoying these Smartphones.. Save $50 a month and buy the whatever next June if you just have to.. Don't you see? EVERY 90 DAYS THEY ARE GOING TO GET BETTER... I can't even imagine still using my Blackberry waiting for the SII to come to Verizon.. No The Bionic! No The Prime! ...Really?

when I tried going the "hacked" upgraded route you speak of my droid started bugging horribley. Thats why I rather get phones that dont need to get ROIDS in order to be fast and efficient. If I acctually knew someone that knew what they're doing and could "personal train" my phone for me with all the "vitamins" and "minerals" that would be a diffrent story. youtube videos and the like just dont cut it for me :(

lol. my laptop only has a 2GHz quad core CPU. does anyone else get the feeling that this is completely unnecessary. also with he screen. it doesn't matter. anything over 220ppi should be ok enough for most people.

no because since I started using my galaxy I don't use almost anymore my laptop. The galaxy s2 is so powerful and so nice I can do almost everything with it. So the laptop is left away

if you keep on waiting for the next best thing you will never get a phone lol...i have had the s2 since may so by the time the s3 comes it will be 1 year so i am really happy that the phone did not get delayed like in US...so when the s3 is released in the US you will probably hear of the s4 which will have better specs and so on and on...i suggest you get the best phone thats available now or you will keep on waiting for the next best thing...sadly in the mobile world things are moving fast so you never have the best for too long...happily i had the s2 for a few months knowing its the best :)

my target is a quad core smartphone. i don't need a dual or a single core. that's why the best thing to do. is waiting and saving a money, and i can really buy a new car right now. hopefully, if that SGS3. will release so,early! i will have it. :)

you've a point there. about that years ago.. i'm looking for a best computer that i can have. but i only see a single core. and i wait for a few years. there is a dual core. so, i buy it! and then in year 2009. i buy another computer. it's a quad core. so, i have a very fast computer now, and i'm glad to have it.

Sorry, but this article is just bull*hit. How is it possible someone has seen the Galaxy S3 and its specs? Sammy is not sutpid. To tell you an example. Just read the sh*t that was announced half a year befor the Galaxy s2 came out. I can't believe phonearena is publisihng such rumors.

ok samsung i love my samsung phone these guys need to be tell to calm down, i mean pulling a poweful phone every 4 months its gonna end killing carriers warranties, plans etc. people still enjoying galaxy s2 and now number 3? cmon settle down... and then the bigger the processor the bigger the screen, whats next? use a brick-like phone like old Motorola times!

66. andriod fan unregistered

Samsung is better but with 4.65 display it will so much bigger ,4.3 inches is better to be a smartphone not tablet ,,and what about 3D will it support 3D ?

if the rumoured ics is supposed to go buttonless then it makes sense cause you can easily fit that screen on a gs2 without the buttons...

1024x1280? WTF? 5:4 aspect ratio, or non-square pixels? Phonearena, there's gotta be something wrong with information provided!

i agree it most likely the same resolution and aspect ratio of the the galaxy not but in a 4.6 inch screen

well if anyone can deliver these specs then its samsung....even if only some of these specs are true the gs3 will be a superb phone and will most likely be my next phone after having the gs2....amoled with that sort of dpi woild be awesome...

Wow.......Thanks PA for bludgeoning my head with "too good to be real" specs for a phone when I just bought my GS2......Couldnt u wait for like another 6 months to start that rumour......For all I know laptops took a decade to reach quadcore and even till date they are not optimized......so having a quadcore S3 seems far from real....at least for another couple of years.......What do you expect us to do with quadcore in a mobile phone?........half the core speed will be grossly underutilized.......just because it sounds good doesnt mean we have to have it.......wake up you fools...I bet none of you even realize that all these technology is useless for a mobile phone when most of what we do can very easily be handled by a single core device.....or if you want u may go for GS2 but let that be the end of it........ I rest my case

The resolution width (1280) is greater than the resolution height (1024). Obviously these are bogus stats. Can anyone just write in with anonomous information and Phonescoop will post? I have a tipster that has told me that the iPhone 6 will have a 2560 x 1600 display and will also project holographic images like those on the "Holodeck" of Star Trek for a completely immersive phone experience. It will be powered by a new octa-core 100 Ghz processor and have 1 Terabyte of internal memory. You heard it here first!
