Totally agree, i got S3 and its a darn nice phone.
Great performance, thin, light, great software updates (most important for me), SD card (second most important).

Ho my God whoever says that the s3 is ugly can go aware himself elsewhere , nowadays all u see on yr phone after putting a case is the screen , don't tell me u don't protect yr phone cause in less than a year it will look terrible , and talking about the screen the one on s3 is just amazing, apart from that all phones look almost the same,they r either rectangular or a bit ronde , anyways if the s3 was ugly people wouldn't have bought it so greatly ,your Sony ,lg,or whatsoever combined wont even sell close to the upcoming s4 ,either u find it ugly or not people will buy it like candies,cause they know what is good and awesome for them

That's one of the reason poeple think that ios is better. But Samsung are starting to do the same thing about the customers services approach.

> In reply to Killer Droid @ 2013-02-27 18:44 from QGtq - click to readwell i am no tech savvy like u guys, may be i will give any android machine another chance, i like their multitasking though it make your phone kinda slow right away, but dont forget most android has the most bugs & malware, invading your privacy etc..etc and I dont have time to install another app just to check another app wether it is safe or not, you know what i mean? And hell no to custome ROM & rooting your phone, make me feel dizzy & kinda stupid.

Say I like reliability, fast and much simpler way. For instance, based on my true experience, few months back Im already running late on the way to the airport I had to check my flight reservation, in the most crucial time suddenly, voila! My travelling app crash in my S3, make me angry but have no time to whine luckily I have my iphone4s & in no time make the confirmation less than a minute! Mind you i paid this stupid android app. Another things, android developer most of them are not that helpful & supportive. Even complaining to google also not helping when reporting those swindler app developers.

In IOS environment, good for us the consumers, if these dev did not comply, Apple will warned them or may be sack them for good from appstore.

> In reply to Buyer @ 2013-02-27 18:18 from IWdy - click to readThe app crash more in IOS than Android by the way. The reason why you think Android app crash more is because when an app crash android tell you. In ios when an app crash you go back to the home screen like nothing happen. IT's only a dirty mind trick that apple there. I make you belive that app don't crash on IOS. It's sad how people can get manipulated.

Look at this link from forbes magazine. You will undestand more realite and how Apple trick poeple.

Well congrats samsung, although im personaly quite disagree.

I am the ex owner of S3 though, together with iphone4s I'm using it for 8 months until I call it quit. It took me almost 2 weeks to find a buyer for this phone :(

I bought S3 because maybe the features, or bcoz of their powerful ads? or mostly recommendation by many of my friends and yes the price is quite reasonable.

I like android phone but I have to admit the S3 feel cheap & kinda ugly, but what most disappoint me is its battery life, lag performance, buggy apps even the paid one! Crash app always give a nightmare & hypertension, android developer also is not very helpful & supportive, not like the ios dev!

I dunno you guys maybe before that I am using iphone 4s & find the S3 is quite lag? Or the android is the culprit? But that all my past history now as I am the new owner of Iphone5, very proud & satisfy, more importantly the device never turn me down in terms of apps reliability and its solid IOS performance.

did ya know it is very easy to find buyer for your iphone 4s? It has only took me an hour to sold it online & yeah with only less 80 bucks from the original price! Worth it right huhuhu..

Instead of arguing/fighting with each other I don't understand why you guys don't feel great that the competition in mobile world is becoming cut throat which is ultimately benefitting us i.e. Consumers. This year is bonanza because other than Samsung or apple or nokia there are great flagships from Sony, htc, Huawei, zte, blackberry too.. I am feeling wow :-)

Just spend a few days with the galaxy s3 & you'll see why it is the phone of the year.
The Note 2 should probably win its in award.
Forget the haters, these 2 devices are outstanding.
