[deleted post]Dis you choose that time period on purpose? It was when iPhone 4S sales were lowest as people were waiting or iPhone 5. Latest figures show iPhone has taken over Android marketshare in the US. With iDevices topping holiday wish lists, expect a strong performance from Apple this quarter and next.
Anyway just an observer, and enjoyer of gadgets. iOS needs to offer a cheaper iPhone model to strengthen its position, Android needs to unify its OS and solve its upgrade path as well as fragmentation issues.
Rumor is that Apple will introduce an affordable in 2014, I wish they would do that next year instead. Android has made good improvements in Jelly Bean but with majority on Gingerbread, the improvements are not felt by most Android users.
Meanwhile, Microsoft is pushing WP8 hard and making good moves.
[deleted post]Read the comments properly and you know who are real owners and who are fake. There are genuine owners with real problems with their SGS3's. it's easy to differentiate trolls from real users. (Not saying that there aren't trolls either).
[deleted post]So who are the real owners and how did you come to that conclusion?
Funny, I notice in other phone sections, even SGS3 there are many owners with complaints with problems but in this section there are no complaints from owners, more complaints from people who don't own the phone lol. Seems like a pretty solid device upon evidence.
Hi Apple let's increase your screen size and kill other company
[deleted post]nice what?

you know guys android users are so matirialistic! why? bcuz they use their phones for sharing and storing so much data in their android phones! so pathetic!

are you done attacking yet? If you have a problem with apple claiming its 200 new features go and sue them for mis leading people.
troll on hater.

Show me where you found out about official updates causing bricks because you just saying it without backing it up is simply your opinion, and your opinions are almost always wrong so I'm waiting for the place that reported this.
And again 200 new features is just your opinion and you have to show a place where it lists those new features, but I'm guessing you just gonna start insulting me and trying to change the subject when yet another of your "facts" is proved to be pure fantasy fiction.
And also because Android is a lot more complicated than IOS I could claim it has a lot more than 200 new features but I wouldn't do that because I'm not gonna exaggerate and claim slight updates of existing features are new features.

The updates were rolled out, however, Samsung quickly put a stop to it, as a huge number of users were contacting Samsung for warranty service. There is a reason why the 4.2 is not ready for S.3 yet because they have to fix so much things. Typical fandroid comment ip4s is no different from ip5. The difference is actually huge. Ip5 with inferior specs embarrassed the S3. S3 punks like you then replied saying, (oh yea! test international version) ip5 beat that too. Of course there is no difference. Because apple is allowing ip3gs users to update to the ios6. So basically, whatever the ip5 can do the ip4s can do. You fandroids need to also stop saying features. There are actually 200 new features, and please don't ask us what it is, go look for it yourself, and GO TRY IT FOR YOURSELF instead of using the same redundant comment over and over again. the ip5 is more then suffice for anyone. I don't consider being able to change your clock or change the way your phone looks consider a great feature.
Your facts are always off, and you base off your facts on anything negative towards apple. You are doing nothing but trolling non stop. Apple is not perfect, the same could be said for Android and w8. You need to stop your trolling and get your facts straight. There is a damn reason why ip5 continues to get raving reviews from tech reviewers. It's because it is one of the best phones on the planet.
I've had this phone for a little while now and it really is a fantastic phone! It's the little touches within the iOS that really set it apart from the android crew (my GS3 was AWFUL and I couldn't get rid of it quick enough if I'm honest!).. Touches like (this seems to be little - known as well!) when you plug the apple ear pods in, listen with those and plug another pair of generic earphones in the iPhone remembers the volume that was last set with the respective pair - sounds insignificant but it just adds to the ease and joy this phone is to use!

You have a huge track record of making false and untruthful statements. IP5S is only spec... moreApart from you saying it I've never seen anywhere that says anything about an official S3 update bricking them, so tell me where you got that from and I'll find out if you right or just imagining what you want to be true like every other Android statement you make, and if you actually bothered to check your facts on anything you say you'll realise the first iPhones were released in the first half of the year so why wouldn't they do it again? I mean if they do that they'll beat the Galaxy S to the market.
And the iPhone 5 isn't much more than a 4S with slightly bigger screen and more power, because phones should have more features not just Benchmark bragging rights.
And moving from S2 the S3 got a much bigger HD screen, wireless charging, Allshare Cast to wirelessly stream full HD video to any TV screen, NFC to pay for things or to just use NFC tags to activate any App or feature by simply waving the tag past the phone, and obviously ICS and Jellybean that aren't the old flat 6 year old OS that IOS is.
And I'll admit I maybe slightly off with my facts sometimes but I always to to base what I say on facts and research what I'm saying, but you just seem to imagine what you want to be true and say it without thinking.

It's mostly android fanatics attacking and accuing apple users of being dumb stupid, a child and a granny.
I'm just here to put them in their place. I'm sick of their nonsense. They are doing the same in the Lumia 920 page. Mostly They claim themselves as "SGS3" users.

You have a huge track record of making false and untruthful statements. IP5S is only speculated to come out in March. Just a bunch of random apple enthusiasts, writing articles. Just like they are "speculating" Apple might buy out AMD. Also how the hell is the s3 "Generations" ahead of the ip5 when their build quality is crap, screen cracks easily, phone crashes, often,lost literally every performance test to the ip5, it even loses to the ip5 in Camera testing and battery life. ?? I Don't get why you have to troll these untruthful statements.
S3 still does not have jelly bean 4.2 update. LOL. YOu want to know why Baracus ? This update was available in Asia S3's, but it caused the phone to die! To f in die! Generations ahead? Joke of a phone. The s3 is the biggest abomination to the planet. Samsung has lied to too many customers.
I really long for the day when I can come onto one of these forums and not be disgusted by all the foolish rumblings u ppl post on a daily basis. This forum, I'm sure was designed to give people the feel of what the handsets really are about but u have transformed it into the forum where u talk trash. Nobody can learn anything from none of the nonesense you people talk on here. Firstly, there's no perfect phone. There are very few high end phones that failed and you should just state your opinions, likes and dislikes and leave it there. Getting into Google's and Apple's business is not called for.
Lynt, 30 Nov 2012Very usefull indeed I'll w8 for 5s instead:)Apparently they might be releasing the 5S in march, and you have to ask yourself why they'd do that? Is it because so many people are disappointed with iPhone 5 because all it is is a little bit more screen and a little bit faster and if they release like normal in September the S4 would have already been out a few months, and since the S3 is like a generation ahead of iPhone 5 in what it does then it'll be made to look like the kind of phone they were using when Stone Henge was built.
MADHU(4484), 30 Nov 2012it's already unlocked or not?
just came out, and surpringly good price at 649 base model, which is the same price of a S3. Awesome deal. Best bang for your buck.
