I know you bought your iphone so you can join your social climbing friends with iphones. you look pathetic. haha! s3 can be connected with keyboard regardless if it has wires or just by bluetooth. and you know what else it can do with bluetooth?? it can send files to other bluetooth device, even my 10 year old nokia can do it.

Why not get some bluetooh keyboard /controller instead? .. or too poor since u already bought s3 ..

But look what we have now, lots of 5-in. devices following the footsteps of galaxy note. These functionalities of samsung android devices maybe gimmick today, but who knows, they might be incorporated with the core of android or even other OS. I salute samsung for not being afraid to innovate and try different stuff. Unlike a certain fruit company thats so afraid to try something new, their product never changed that much :P

Iphone top android phones anytime.. there is even a touch screen case for iphone. Its flip cover does not even autoswitch on s3.. even need a third party battery draining apps on the prox sensor.

Multiscreen support is one of the better things i heard, however the downside is it does not support all apps ... plus they have not perfect the way of controlling 2 apps easily.. (S3 still does not have the screen of note 2 to perform those task properly..)
Smart stay is kinda cool.. but why bother when u can swipe down and lock rotate and save ur battery?

Alot of gimmicks.. but only good when you talk about it when comparing between different droids, like htc sense..
(Why compare things like "Page buddy (mod home screen)" when it does not make sense in iOS??)

Salute ur cut and paste to prove your point thou..

So it did take me a long time to switch from Symbian to Andriod and I like it! SGS II (microSD removaable battery are my deal breakers)

So I do see a lot phone worship and I really don't know why
Competition benefits us all INNOVATORs (pun intended)

I can't find the GSMarena article JUNE 2012 but
"A new report from IDC is forecasting that by 2016 Windows Phone is to overtake Apple’s iOS and so to become the second operating system running smartphones behind Android, that will keep its leadership.

The iPhone growth will slowly moderate over the next 5 years, because the device will flood the marketplace."

Its just a phone so if Sammy or nokai come out with it i'm there

Nokia's sell at the moment are abysmal compared to samsung's. They do make great phone, but they've got to fight against Apple and Samsung which ain't no easy task.

I've tried Nokia's latest phones and they are great, but i'd rather sells them to my grandma than to buy one for myself to be honnest.

A lot of other manufacturers made upgrades that really mattered, such manufacturers as Sony, HTC and the big one Samsung.
Samsung made a bigger screen because EVERYONE who has knowledge to the high end smartphone market knows that the majority wants a bigger. They also want power and if there is an upgrade for the OS, it has do be ground breaking. The iPhone 5 has only gotten a better screen and a software saying we can't think of anything new. The only one's saying it is the best phone of 2012 are Apple fanboys with no knowledge to the smartphone market. iPhone 5 has a good screen resolution but vs the complete package of SGS3 and the FREEDOM you gain from the Android OS in general, makes it a pathetic comparison and only Apple fanboys can see iPhone as a winner. Read the reviews of new phones before you comment, there are a lot of smartphone manufacturers who deserves to be innovator of 2012, but Apple ain't one.

Dont look down on nokia / WP8! .. The fact that it runs smoothly with dual cores + limited ram and have good batt life is a big threat to android..

Because they can build phones that are slimmer and smaller and more stylish then android. Soon to be proven with new aluminium nokia 920..

Don forget what makes an iphone .. a iphone .. it is the quality apps and ease of managing those list of apps. Proven since iOS 4.1 .. thus no need change

On S3 .. (some features are good) but the core OS (android is a lagging beast that need tons of battery support because it does not manage the apps' service well which bloats the phone in the first place...

I guess you must have had absolute nothing to do with Wp8, the last time i remember wp8 supports multicore = can support quadcore but stop! What does wp need quadcore for? I thought it general knowledge that Android is the only os that needs quadcore to be stable and run smooth. I said wp8 is incomplete cos its missing many features and some apps. I have at least used both and know what i am talking about and by the way i don't consider someone who used wp8 for like maybe a month as someone who used it. Wp8 has been out for 3 months+ but it doesn't seem to support all wp7 apps like ms claimed, thats one of the reasons i said it was incomplete and another thing is that many apps were rushed and the end result is that those apps have lots of bugs. Nokia lumia 920 hardware rocks but wp8 is still not ripe i just hope it won't take long for it to become complete.Now i have turned the thread to something else but its not my fault! ;)
