Some have complained galaxy s3 about its flimsy feel.
Higher quality parts will get people to take another look at NOKIA,HTC and APPLE for 2013 flagship.
HTC was the high quality aluminum, and the proper metal treatment and not like galaxy series.
HTC does much better job with aluminum bodies imho.
people diss apple because it sucks compared to android were u juss have more freedom but then again android is not as smooth as apple so to each his own

All HTC needs to do is hard core marketing campaign.

Apple makes the most per handset because its cheap to make and they charge the most. They don't outsell Samsung or Nokia. But, in the mobile department, they make more money by gouging you into thinking that those "premium" parts (mostly from Samsung) are top of the line.
Apple provide premium hardware and software .. and you guys compare it to samsung and constantly bashing it..
Apple is always one step ahead. Their current iphone is using Cortex-A15 .. compared to S3 and note 2 using Cortex-A9, which is same processor as that of iPhone 4S. Fanboys only look at number of cores, but never know what is inside the cores.
To make it clear.. samsung do not have the build quality NOR the processing quality.
Thats why the price is cheap.. and for those that think they getting value for money is terribly wrong.
Iphone 4/4s are indestructible (unless you drop it, or place it in a pocket with keys.)
Razr MAXX is highly durable and doesn’t feel flimsy like some of the other GALAXY phones. In fact, the phone’s backing is coated in Kevlar, a synthetic fiber noted for its strong body.
Razr MAXX is also scratch resistance and water resistance. Its splashguard technology is designed to protect against light moisture, in case you get caught in the rain or spill something on your phone.
And plastic is cheap, unattractive and less durable than aluminum.
You can use fancy words like "polycarbonate" unibody or military grade polymer. It doesn't matter plastic will always be prone to cracks, flexing and discoloration.
You can argue that plastic is lighter and offers better signal reception. Well that didn't stop apple from making outstanding products.
Don't blame it on the materials, blame it on the engineers that design these cheap flimsy toys.
You guys obviously don't appreciate outstanding craftsmanship from NOKIA,HTc,ASUS and apple.

No matter how HARD you try to defend samsung and the reality is the whole world labelled they are "COPYCATz" brand.
You know your product is a cheap imitation.
They don't seem to care about making quality devices or having good support.
Their screens are cheap, the materials they use are cheap, it's all about $$$.
You are paying the premium price, the price "does not"reflects the quality parts.
nokia3110, 03 Mar 2013There is a rumor that Apple gonna release a cheap plastic iPhone in 2014. So when it come out ... moreWhat was the IPhone 3GS made of eh? Samsung is fugly design and looks and cheap plastic crap! HTC and Sony best design!
Anonymous, 02 Mar 2013That pales in comparison to the way Samsung is trying to stiff Ericsson.Everything Samsung has achieved has been a stolen idea from other companies! The S1 was an iPhone 3GS copy without a doubt! Why should Samsung infringe other companies patents? They should pay the royalties like everybody else. Now they are using Ericcson patents and trying to escape without paying. There will be lots of other companies Samsung will owe. The world's court's need to make an example of Samsung that copying and stealing ideas from other companies shouldn't be tolerated!
i and allot of peeps want the best all round u cant look good and be smart u should be able to take a beating
you guys are touched right cause u now ther is a problem and looks like ther is better to offer in a all round phones a big issue for me is build quality and water proof is something that should be in all flagships so yeah im gona say it how it is and if nokia can do it why cant sammy they have the money thats why i have no loyalty cause when u are they tend put less effort
Anonymous, 04 Mar 2013it looks kinda UGLY and cheap on the back but really nice on the front. The reason why I think... moreHoly crap..You just simply stated your own opinion....by god people are able to do that after all....Yes some people want a flashy phone and some people are ok with the minimalistic design. It all depends. The ergonomics and function on the other hand are hard to match. But to not like its design is rightfully your own opinion. To claim its cheap while its not however is making up lies based off your own likes
Anonymous, 04 Mar 2013Again. See you are throwing opinion and mixing it with fact and using one specific issue to st... moreit looks kinda UGLY and cheap on the back but really nice on the front. The reason why I think it looks "ugly" on the back is because it has "minimal" styling around its camera and speakers. Its just there and it doesn't work well with what Samsung have tried to make a smooth "Hyperglaze" body. Its something rough with what should be a smooth rounded body. And the minimal camera styling seems familar with the Galaxy Mini? Not shouting flagship thats all, and people want a phone thats "all eyes on me" when they're spending around £500, NOKIA ideology will always be there.
Anonymous, 04 Mar 2013I didn't need to make you look crazy. You were fine on your own. I can dis on all companies to... moreSamsung is in no way ahead in terms of cpu in the mobile tech world..
Their most current phones note2 and s3 are using the same cores found in iPhone 4S clocked at higher speed only.
All other brands like htc sony or huawei exceed them and release their better CPU faster then them.
Anonymous, 04 Mar 2013sorry ill be more direct and say build quality and is garbage and and at this point if they do... moreAgain. See you are throwing opinion and mixing it with fact and using one specific issue to stretch it over an entire spectrum. Weather you like it or not it's not cheap. That's just fact. Yes being water proof would be very smart for them to do. Its a problem specific only to the s3 and is probably a tempering issue as stated already, but you apparently only see what you want. You dont like the design? That's ok. It's your opinion. Some people do though. if you don't then stick with someone else.
[deleted post]Lol. So in other words you have zero relevant knowledge here to the point of the copying or any of the technology in general. Instead sound like a broken record about design. Oh I mean...Im sorry was i supposed to whine back to you. The article is about a copy that didnt happen coming from the biggest scam artist and copy cat company of them all
sorry ill be more direct and say build quality and is garbage and and at this point if they dont change that im not buying thats y i post hoping they would listen to what peeps r complaining about and fix it cause yah il trade my sony for samsung if its water proof and can take a fall like a normal phone should
Anonymous, 04 Mar 2013I don't understand why Samsung were trying to conceal the final design, its not as though it's... moreYeah.. I mean its so rare and un heard that a company keep the final design of their flagship under wraps weather its a phone, clothing design, games system, car, or anything. How weird Samsung would do that. God everything you say makes more and more sense
