> In reply to [deleted post]all tech review sites??? names please??? oh and guess your excluding Gsmarena from that list then..
as in the iphone5 review it states samsung will sleep well knowing very few if any will be jumping ship...
kinda suggesting why would we bother when obviously we already have the better phone right???

> In reply to [deleted post]iPhone 5 is dualcore not single core. I won't bash the S3 because I've had this phone for 3 months before switching to the iPhone 5 but I will agree with you that the iPhone 5 is just better. People won't know it unless they try both of these phones.

I recently had this phone before I made a switch to the iPhone 5. It's just too huge for me and I'm not quite happy with its performance. S3 was nice but the iPhone 5 is just the best.

It would involve downloading Odin 1.83 was what i used plus the actual firmware which will come from a host site..You make sure 2 boxes ticked and enter correct parts into correct sections including CSC,PDA etc ..It will include getting drivers to recognise your device and it will turn yellow in Odin..Then press start and odin will do its job..


Thats the jist of it but still needs getting things correct..Good luck you will do it just read,read and read again..Google and XDA developers are your friends.

This is what i used to flash SGS2 ,,S3 may differ slightly.

Kies will only flash a ROM versions depending on what version/region ROM you already have on your phone and it does the download for you. (Dummy proof way)

You think using Twitter & and Facebook is private?
you think cloud base service is private?
you think web cookies are private?
you think GPS logs are private?
You think sms are private?
you think using a public WiFi is private?

Only phones come close to being private is the blackberry. That has to go through there encrypted server.
And even that I would question.

You gave away privacy the day you went online with any device.

Frankly I won't go for SGS3, why the size is too big for me to hold long and tiring too, Android is a resource and power hogs, its suck up battery very fast, SGS3 amoled screen use up battery power fast the most especially surfing, thou the phone is quad core and 2 gig ram the phones still face lag, even a iPhone 5 single core and 1 gig ram run faster than a quad core, pardon me i not a fanboys of Apple cos i do not wan ppl to be blinded with excellent hardware means the best phone, the resell value of a SGS3 is lower than a iPhone, why? Cos too many ppl using it and also is make of cheap plastics. Android OS thou is a open source but is more prone to malware and virus, and is own by google so ur privacy is expose, IOS and window7 have minimum for attack, SO please Guys don't buy phone blindly, OS running the phone is more impt when buying phones, ur privacy is top.
