My concern is the fact that so many back covers are involved. My gut instinct is that they weren't spotted in quality control because they looked fine at that stage and that the fault (assuming it's the white hazing issue I've seen pictures of) develops over time, perhaps as the hyperglaze becomes cloudy or starts to separate from the layer below. Does this mean that a new batch could look fine at first then have the same fault appear weeks or months down the line? I like the blue but I've changed my order to the white to play safe. I could be wrong (it has happened) but I'm not taking the chance, and if it does happen with the white backs too hopefully it'll less obvious.

Shouldn't a 700+$ device be flawless? Think what you're throwing your money for. Meanwhile in Africa...

Maybe the new Gorilla glass has a weakness when hit from a particular angle. Being thinner it stands to reason that if it's going to break it will more likely shatter.
I hope S3 doesn't become known for glass breakage the way iPhone does...or worse.

i5 will have many changes - larger screen, better cpu/gpu, new iOS, slimmer. So those that didn't upgrade to 4S will jump on the i5, and all the fans that queue for days for the latest Apple product will do so again.
And Apple will release it in more countries simultaneously (they tend to learn from past mistakes)
End result: i5 will smash previous records by default.
As much as I wanted S3 to be the de-throner, it has fallen short on enough expectations (pentile, old arch cpu/gpu, debatable design, not slimmer,...) and not as clearly ahead of some of the competition that its sales will set android device sales records, but will fall well short of i5 and likely 4S.
Indi, 30 May 2012The difference between Android and Apple is like difference between Chiken and Mutton. We can ... moregood analogy!
I would like to extend the analogy:
iPhone = mutton
Android = chicken
WP = beef
BlackBerry = pork
Symbian = dog
Everybody has own preference/prohibition

i'm telling you
The difference between Android and Apple is like difference between Chiken and Mutton. We can get many varieties of chicken as well as cheaper than mutton. Chicken are used widely and in great amount compared to mutton. People have their own taste whether which one to eat.

Please appeal to Samsung that if possible to make bronze/brown color on their Samsung Galaxy S III. It's better if they would make it like a stainless bronze color and I bet, it would be the best sale unit. Make it both front & back panel just like the white and blue variants of the S III.
Below are some old models of mobile phones to consider:
* Nokia E52
* Nokia E72
* Samsung S8000 Jet (back panel)
