to the people going on about the new LG that has 2gb ram answer me this. what are you gna do with so much ram on a phone?
you probably don't even know. you just see 2gb and think its better.

1gb is still more than enough at this stage. LG is just fooling you into buying there phone by giving it 2gb which is just unnecessary.

But havent u realise samsung has all of these at one place, in one handset am i right? And dont get bluffed by sonys peculiar names . So and so engine so and so sensor so and so coating . All these are just names and nothing else my friend bought a xperia s and the phone is terrible he already got problems with it and visited the service center twice. I too had a bad experience with my xperia x10 earlier and my friend who bought galaxy s along with me is still using it perfectly but my phone is in the attic now.

Samsung made a bad choise and chose a crappy microphone ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pnCzvb5zI8I skip at 1:30 for sample; unpleasant, unnatural sharp sound without low frequency response; this will also affect in call quality even with that secound microfone for noise cancellation.) and cheap build in materials for such an expensive device with an exceptional processing power. In my opinion Samsung would have had to use a bigger camera sensor (insted now S3 have the old S2 camera sensor). I think that in a few weeks, in every day usage with a custom rom (that will eventualy include those sofware inovation from S3)you won't be able to notice any differences between S2 and S3.

Sorry for my bad english (blame my english teacher :)) )

Ofc it has bluetooth file transfer and multi-tasking, Symbian? Does your Samsung have reliable connectivity with a weak signal everytime? Or great call audio quality?How about on speakerphone? I use my phone for business to make money and reliable connectivity is critical, which Nokia can only provide.

The S3 design is not bad, but its lil boring!!
ppl are upset abt S3's specification, i really dont know why???

- firstly 12Mp camera, r u serious, its a SMART phone, not a digi cam....
- i do agree the design is boring...
- Display is good, i hope it will save some battery...
- no Water Proofing!!!!!! (Samsung should have included that in S3)
- Build Quality... Samsung should have made it solid like (aluminium or something)
- internal memory options are good, but makes no sense when the microSD is expandable upto 64Gb
- ppl creeping abt 2Gb RAM... go and buy urself a laptop.... u r @ wrong section.... whats the use of 2Gb of RAM???? Its a Smart Phone... not a Laptop!!!
- GPU is descent

Not to forget cloud storage. You need to fast-forward to the presence dude. We are living in the 21st century ;)

They can still reclaim the top spot once they started on their Lumia PureView with the newest iteration of Windows Phone Apollo.

http://discussions.nokiausa.co.../true#M12317
And plenty of people are complaining too

Man just quit the act you know Nokia is over NO one cares for Nokia anymore "Europe Carries said that no one ask for Nokia in stores"
http://www.gsmarena.com/lumia_...ews-4103.php
And their sales dropped so hard even Nokia couldn't bare it and made last chance with big MP camera to fool the public and they know deep down its nothing when compared with DLRS or S2 Camera "Won award for best Camera in Mobile choice award 2011", And you will see when it released.

Nokia doesn't provide descent technology they still in 2010 specs.

I will ask you this simple question: If Nokia is so good then why they lost their share in market sales? Nokia couldn't sell regular phones in number of Samsung's smartphones!

Galaxy Note "New phone" outsold and still outsell all Nokia Lumia phones! Although Nokia had way way head start in 90's they were Number one in market!

Bada OS outsold WP and what can you say for that? Nokia R.I.P?

What's new in PureView? It's a replacement for optical zoom. And it's not a disappointment either. It's been winning awards and acclaim from various tech sites left and right. PureView is 5 years ahead of the camera of the N8 which is 5 years ahead of the camera of any other current mobile phone.
