haha I think you got me wrong, no one agrees with you more about the Android Operating System, however there's no denying that Nokia is the best magnufacturers of cell phones, their OS isn't all that, but it's decent and their phones are still very competitive in terms of performance, I have a Samsung Galaxy, I really think Samsung are the ones shining right now, I just don't agree that Apple iPhone is better than Samsung or Nokia.

Nokia's softwares and hardwares are so outdated...As much as I love Nokia ( i still have my 8810 btw), i really wish they'd make the jump to Android OS and stop fantasising about their Symbian or MeeGo aspirations...The Android platform is so well design that it makes everything so much user friendly. I personally have the T999 coming from a I717...and God does that 2GB RAM make a big difference. I'm currently runnning CM9 nightly on mine...and finally the true potential of this phone is finally revealing itself.

Well Jack Sparro, clearly you know nothing about phones, cause if you did, you would know that Nokia is better than both Samsung and iPhone, poor guy, iPhone? really? the phone that can have nothing, besides programs from apple? dude, go do some homework. Next you might asctually say apple is number one even when the ranking is right there, Nokia is number 1.

Just got my Galaxy S III T999 32GB. Just to let you know: the PHONE IS MADE IN CHINA. Build quality so far seems good. When I unboxed it, found a long strand of hair inside the box LOL.

Saw this phone in person wow it's huge, way to big what a shame. Wish they would have just stuck with a 4" size screen from the original Galaxy but in HD. I prefer a phone I can actually fit in my pocket. I hate Apple but they seem to be the only company with a flagship phone that gets this!

> In reply to Hisham @ 2012-07-06 19:41 from fwQh - click to readImpressive when you pick it up. Surprised at the size. Read all of the comments about its size but when I put my Galaxy S with soft plastic sleeve, you would be hard pressed to see that they weren't the same width. Yes, it's slightly longer but who cares about the screen sticking out above your hand. The thing that SHOCKS ME is that the manager at corporate T-Mobile wrote back to me that this phone has no LTE hardware even though T-Mobile starts the next generation LTE next summer with field trials beginning now. Say what! This phone become $600 of obsolete hardware as quickly as twelve months from today. THAT'S CRAZY. Screen pixels per inch are just a teeny bit lower than the HTC One, what I found amazing is that I could easily see this difference without difficulty. So, Samsung took the lesser screen capability for battery life. First thing, load up Speed Test! In the store, 4G was 2-3 Mbps. My Galaxy S 3G was 1.3-1.8 Mbps. My Verizon Hotspot was 13-15 Mbps! All in the store at the same time. So, before I go on, let my say a few things. I am the first T-Mobile customer in the US as I bought a phone on the first day. Second, my Sprint hotspot was dropping out too often, say once per 15 minutes with a five second reconnect time interval. My current Verizon hotspot records 13-15 Mbps peak but it can take forever to download some tiny file, why, because Verizon spends a significant amount of your data allotment to upload aka steal all of your personal information. A tiny file would be downloaded but my upload arrow is pumping away, up, up, up. This doesn't happen on the other carriers, as they steal it less noticeably. Another Verizon point is that it takes 25 SECONDS TO RECONNECT about once every ten minutes! Very frustrating. But I do not know why, but 3G T-Mobile never disconnects even if it is running a hundred times slower!!! Perhaps it is running at the strong 800 - 900 frequency instead of the weak 1700 - 2100 frequency range. The next test was YouTube video comparison between S3, S, HTC1, and my Tab 10.1. The Tab 10.1 is high definition and the S3 and HTC1 use about 60% of the vertical screen so its not HD. First, you must turn off the auto screen brightness setting because otherwise it will be way too dark. I distinctly noticed blurring in both the S3 and HTC1. It hurts my eyes when my Tab 10.1 is held next to them. Next photographs, there is some kind of software issue when looking at pics as it pushes the pic to half the screen showing. Notwithstanding this issue, I took a known Pixel Peeper photo taken with a 200mm f2.0 lens, so I know I can see pores, downy hair and skin cells on a pretty model's face. Galaxy S3 is excellent. This confuses me because how can the video be so bad but the photographs are vibrant with true colors? I think the processor is too slow for video. The white vs. blue color? The white is really creme and the blue is a fingerprint magnet because it is like a shiny mirror with greasy fingers touching the mirror. Whoever chose the blue should be fired and the creme shows no fingerprints. I hated the white and wanted the blue when I saw it on the Internet but completely changed my mind after holding each in my hand. Creme is the way to go. The vividness of the colors in the icons is unlike any phone that I have ever held and I must say that the iPhone pales in this one dramatic quality. I like the iPhone retina screen but its muted colors and tiny screen size make it a loser. No wnder Apple is in court trying to stop Samsung in the US. Samsung has a superior product. So, where do you buy this as Verizon changes its plans since talking and texting usage ard waning and data increases are going to blow off the roof. Verizon is charging an arm and leg for unlimited data 10G with talk and text. Sprint is going to follow. ATT tower coverage is just plain bad. And T-Mobile throttles you to 2G speeds after you hit 5Gig. I say wait until Summer 2013 at T-Mobile! Tough decision.
