Guys, I don't get all the fuss around this topic...
these are the pre-orders BY THE CARRIERS. Far away from the actual pre-orders by potential users. It might be confusing, but there's actually no way this phone would have all those client pre-orders in 15 days. And as I read earlier and totally agree, this might be a marketing maneuver...

If at all you get a chance to get your hands on to a device practically, you’ll notice the difference. Many software allied things in this device are enough reasons to update from s2 to s3. Yes, you may feel that this device looks ugly, it’s a similar story… even I felt the same until I got to hold a phone in my hand… it is indeed beautiful… talking about existing Smartphone’s available in market right now, this device outperforms everyone else. From Battery till browser performance… everything is super smooth and marvelously fantastic… once this device is out, you go and check for yourself, you’ll understand what changed my view about this phone. Even I at the outset hated this design when it was launched but then later on I got to see this phone… it’s worth every $’s you’ll spend on it… you’ve enough reasons to upgrade your device from s2 to this one pal… It outperforms everyone else… to be honest, I was about to buy HOX but then when I saw this phone and fidgeted it for more than an hour, I realized I made a wise decision of not buying HOX or else I would have regretted my decision. I’m just waiting for this device to come out in market so that I can actually buy it rather than looking at a device that came for reviewing purpose.

I agree with many here - this figure not likely true, else why be posted anonymously? You wouldn't be hiding news like this if true.

About comparison sales with S2, based on the roughly equal amounts of disappointment coming out everywhere everywhere S3 will sell more than S2 but not by a lot.

Comments that S3 outstrips the competition...really? Are we all reading the same stuff here in GSMArena or not?? A number of phones nearly match or sometimes surpass S3 specs/performance - HOX, LG LTE2, Panasonic, Meizu Quad (beats the S3 using the same processor!). The Krait Quad due out soon will eclipse the S3 in every benchmark - Sammy should have waited for the A15 architecture.

Gulan, which are the most beatiful designs? HTC 1X and Xperia S have better styling and finishes - which is heard in virtually every review of not only them but the S3 as well!

And lastly, as for 'Cool Story Bro' and his 4S, I agree it's the best SELLING device in the world and will only be surpassed by the iPhone5. But as for being the best SMARTPHONE, I don't see any clear winner to the title. No phone ticks every box, and hard to claim one that ticks the most boxes as many of those boxes are very subjective (personal preference driven) items.

I was expecting and hoping the S3 would make my S2 seem shabby & dated. Unfortunately it doesn't so my S2 will be with me until the SGS4.

That's like gsmarena said 900+ iPhone per minute before even it's release globally and to make it clear iPhone 4s is the best smartphone in the world and the only phone that will take that title is the iPhone 5 ;)

anyway, which one is most beautiful. in your openion.....

1: htc one x
2: galaxy s3
3: xperia s
4: htc one s

and what about the dual core processor on the htc one s , that beats the gs3 in benchmarks.
if you people need powerful device over beautiful designs, why don't you people go for tablets or laptops.

Lots of trolling going on here, maybe the figures arent correct but im sure well know in not that long. And the people that are saying this is not the most powerfull phone on the market at the min are just wrong, it does not come out top on all benchmarks but most, and to be fair the ones it loses out on are mainly due to screen size. Also before the comments come rolling in im a nokia owner

This is fake. when it comes from Samsung itself and they say 9 million, it actually means only 1 million. Samsung loves to inflate numbers.
