damian, 25 Sep 2012this is excluding preorders. there were 2 million pre-orders so apple has sold about 7 million... morethat's only 7m of preorders and first 3days in sales. that's way below more than 10 m just on pre-orders for samsung galaxy s3.
get the facts straights and stop twisting or hiding facts just to make apple look good. that is why so many people, even many fair minded apple product users, dislike apple and its fans.
LOL, some fire here... I have an iPhone 4S, HTC One X and a BlackBerry 9790! Eff you all, I live in peace and perfect harmony hahaha. Each phone fill the blank space the last one leaves :P
So apple predicted 8 million sales in first weekend (an earlier gsmarena story) but only managed 5 million which is still good but hello everyone is over looking there 8 million prediction am i only one who sees this as egg in apples faces and a clear sign people aint that impressed with i5 not enough advances over i4s for me.. though the matt Grey frame does look business shame they didnt use the matt Grey frame on white i5

Anonymous, 25 Sep 2012In other words. It's an Iphone. It's expected to sell millions fast. No surprise.sure. But its not expected to become the fastest selling phone ever

Bryan, 25 Sep 20125M in 3 days? not that surprising. I'll be surprised if they sold 5M in 8 hours or something. Its a bit difficult to sell 175 units every second when there’s only 388 stores on the entire planet.
They won't be able hand them over that fast.
don’t know the number of digits in a million? Lol
Anyway this is the fastest selling phone ever..
Harshad, 25 Sep 2012Apple fails expectations.... 8 million are expected for weekend sale. Maps getting people lost... morethis is excluding preorders. there were 2 million pre-orders so apple has sold about 7 million iphones in 3 days. lol
5M in 3 days? not that surprising. I'll be surprised if they sold 5M in 8 hours or something.
karuh, 25 Sep 2012It's sad knowing, the most expensive phone on the market, is not the best phone, with bad apps... moreNot the best hardware? Thats a bit harsh.. its definitely one of the best phones out at the moment.. top 3 for sure.
Just because Ferrari is best, doesn't mean some people cant buy Lamborghini or Porsche. They are all different, but all very fun to drive. Same with phones.
The iPhone 5 as far as I know, has great hardware, and delivers great specs in a very small phone. This in your eyes, seems to be no achievement at all.. thats strange.
Anonymous, 25 Sep 2012Where do you get yellowish from?I wouldn't say Yellowish.. but I know what he means.
The screen has a blanket of tint to it comparing to better quality screens like the ONE X and the iPhone. Im not being biased either, the SGS3 is a great phone, one of the top 3 at the moment. For me its too big, and plastic but I appreciate it has a great size screen for email and movies, and is a beast with its power (CPU GPU ETC).
But its screen, it looks like it has blue/green tint to it, and its rather heavy. Makes everything look a bit "dull".
PS I saw the metallic grey 4G version today doesnt look too bad..
gerald_philippines, 25 Sep 2012hey, i think that's also the thing that i have been thinking more than 10 times about using Sa... moreThe only thing with Amoled screens is that white can be a "tad bluish" and mainly only when told or compared to another screen. But their whites are way whiter that the blacks of an LCD. And the colors are still very accurate and you can adjust them if you think are slightly saturated. They also provide the best visibility in sunlight.
Rex, 25 Sep 2012How good is Iphone- check this out. The message written on official London Underground (tube) ... moreIt's effing awesome! So awesome in fact that they finally added customizing to it! You can now scratch in what ever you want
Anonymous, 25 Sep 20125 million people with crap mapwell, look at it this way. At least android fanboys don't have to tell apple fanboys to "get lost". With the help of their iphones, now they can.
as for me, i ain't buying an iphone 5 until they fix the friggin map or return google maps back. Its one of my most used feature on a smartphone.
Paxton.Petty, 25 Sep 2012The Samsung fanboys must be so pissed off right now. LOLHey it's only comments like yours that piss people off, think about it!

Anonymous, 25 Sep 2012i am now using 3gs and thinking to get a new phone. I am disappointed with the new iphone5. i ... morehey, i think that's also the thing that i have been thinking more than 10 times about using Samsung phones, i personally don't like the color of the screen its like bluish or yellowish, whereas if you compare it with iPhones, its totally different, colors are accurate, even my Nokia N9's screen looks better than any Samsung phone screen, no bias here since I have used Galaxy Note and Samsung Galaxy S1 before, and thats the main reason why I kept coming back to using iPhones. I have used an LG Optimus Vu as well and if I compare the Screen with Samsung SuperAmoled, LG's HD IPS LCD looks better for me. its kinda bothering as well coz if I look at Samsung screen, major colors that I noticed is orange and green which is not good in the eye.
