Great to be a GS3 owner though, we dont have to troll around, we already know we've got one of the best smartphones (the other being the Note2) in the market, i just laugh and pity the other platforms and their users now, look how they have to troll to get their rather invalid point out, lol!

Must say, im thoroughly enjoying Multi-view, Page Buddy and the new Gallery which is so fast and fluid. Multi-view will come in handy for quite a lot of things i do, e.g. when im writing a document and need more info, i can just bring up the web browser in the same screen etc...I've even had YouTube and Twitter going at once :D and the best part is that it doesn't impact the battery that much, so we can multitask like on a PC and not really be concerned about up time. :)

Shame, the poor haters, this must be driving them mad. :)

After reading many comments, I just realised that all the haters must be jealous because they are not brining up any valid points because they never used the s3 or any new android. It gets annoying someone trying to convince you that your product is not good when they never even had it. S3 users are so satisfied with there devices.

Android took pinch to zoom and double tap to zoom from iOS. That's much more integral to touch phones than a notification center. Do you even remember how clunky it was before that came along. And before the Samsung fanboys make it seem like multi-window is a new amazing Samsung thing (leave it to them and they would tell you Samsung created the world), Microsoft showed it off on the Surface before Samsung did. LG also has something like that already, if I'm not mistaken.

trust samsung to release this update before the holiday season. this will give a big boost to S3 sales and will definitely impact iphone5 sales negatively despite thelatter's drive to lower prices and boost their own weak sales. go samsung!

Meanwhile, android users can enjoy it long before iOS users can :) that is real innovation. Not some rectangular icons. Or whatever bouncy effect blah blah. Really.
