> In reply to [deleted post]Popye dear, Iphones are expensive paper weights. If someone wants to buy a good phone go for Android like SIII, or Note. This crap called iphone is only a showpiece but good for nothing. Bluetooh doesnot works, need itunes to copy data, Itunes what a waste of time and money.

""Actually only those who either can't afford an iPhone or just extremely tasteless will go for a Samsung Galaxy S III. ""

go jump off a bridge! sgs3 is by far the best, most selling, most popular, most sought after, easiest of the UIs, fastest and the smartest mobile phone ever!!!!

what does 'LIEPHONE' has to offer? s**t and dull interface, multimedia messaging and bluetooth problems, limited menu features, pain in the behind syncing with 'LIETUNES' s**t.
way to sleep with that. whatever makes you comfortable to LIE yourself.

samsung galaxy s3 rules the mobile market GLOBAlLY!!!!!

> In reply to [deleted post]You do understand that both phones are relatively cheap when you get it on a term agreement right? Phones are actually cheaper these days than they were when I first started using them. People easily forget the days of 8xxx series Nokias and Sharp SX833. Phones are quite cheap these days and even elderly people can get iphones...

It has the fastest screen on mobile (5.4X faster refresh rate than the iPhone 5' screen, and 2.4X faster than Galaxy S3). Screen has better visibility than any other phone even on bright sunlight. The touchscreen works with gloves that other phones won't. The Optical Image Stabilization on the camera is the first in smartphone. It has the best low light camera in mobile. HAAC (audio recording) microphones beast every other phones that are none-Nokia. Wireless charging built-in. The buttons and camera deco are made of the super hard Zirconium for scratch resistant, unlike the Lumia 900's. It has a next-gen Dual LED flash.

I'm certain that you have never EVER touched a lumia, and even if you did it was either too expensive to get or your carrier gave you the lowest level of android for free so you had no choice but be happy with it... Pls, go play with your low-end lagdroid and stop spreading lies for the minimalistic awesomeness called lumia...

When minor probe appear with lumias... Android fanboys will bury you alive...when slight scratches are seen in iPhones, android fanboys burn you alive...when android phones are reported for issues, sometimes even dead (mother board)...they bury and burn what is reality :(

Nokia shouldn't even enter your thought process their just not a viable option right now. Unless they make the switch to android then they could well go the way of palm and pull out of the cell phone market. When ever i am out i never see anyone rocking a nokia phone any more.
