I cannot believe the amount of hatred / fanboyism on this thread!!

What does it gain you being a fan of Nokia / Sony / Apple / whoever?!?!

Nothing! It just limits your choice and appreciation for other tech!

You have to realise all any of these companies want is your cash, they don't even know / care who you are!

So do yourselves a favour... think for yourselves, broaden your horizons a bit... and embrace every manufacturer!

Each one has their own pluses and minuses...

Sammy excels in tech (but not in handset design)
Apple excels in premium materials (but not in tech)
Nokia does a little bit of both, with a possible great handset next year (but currently not in anything)
Sony excel in handset design (but not in tech)
HTC are a jack of all trades (not quite there with tech, but almost there with design)

Each one has their own benefits and weaknesses...

None are better than others!

Enjoy them all!

I really dont think the S3 is gonna make that big an impact compared to what the S2 did last year. The S2 was a superb phone worthy of being clled a flagship. But the S3 cannot be called a flagship.

Biggest joke of the millenium... 2 yrs before ur comment had some sense but in todays date, everyone will laugh on u lyk m laughing on u.... Hehehaha.... Nokia's lumia has not even sold 1/10th of total S2's sales n looking at that figure S3 z goin to climb up more than S2... Pop in ur windows phone... Today no one z there to compete wid S3... S3 z lyk a hungry bull who z running behind everyone n kicking everyone's a** n it z definitely goin to kick WP8 smartphones of nokia... May b lumia's r king in WP sales but in overall S3 z the king... They fight for heavyweight championships, not lyk ur nokia lumia who fight for women championship... Android market is 20 times bigger than WP's market... Wake up i think u had a DREAM but ur DREAM WILL NEVER COME TRUE!!!!! Hahaha

To me is this news shows Samsung is nervous of the Nokia and Windows Phone partnership that is setting sales records.

True Nokia Fans are with Elop.

Hi guys, please don't keep comparing with iPhone... It's new generation of amazing stuffs (HTC oneX, Motorola ..) and not fair to be compared with infirm phone (iphone) .. I want a device that gives me what do I really need, not to tell me what should I have after pulling all of my money ...

Aren't Samsung fanboys always complaining about how people buy iphones just so they can say how expensive it is? Where are all the Samsung fanboys now? Here's one of your own doing it and you say nothing. Hypocrites.

S2 is way out of your league... and the funny thing is you said it didn't stand your heavy duties LOL what a joker of course it wouldn't because its an imaginary S2 not a real thing!
I hope everyone read your comments and know how Nokia fanboys are the most lousy liars ever.
