Totally tired of the boring fashion gadgets. How can people write comfortably without a qwerty?
To be a real upgrade it will have to have
1) Stylus input
2) Dual Sim
fro the Pro version
1) Slider QWERTY
That'd be fair. I hope the reviewers who praised the iPhone 4S, don't flame the new Galaxy S if it just turns to be a minor upgrade.
I dnt knw its real or fake image...but it was written "meet the next galaxy" in the invitation card. So wait till 3rd may....
Im seriously a Samsung fan, but if thats really the samsung galaxy s3 its ugly i rather get the htc one x its more stylish than this.
I think the SGS3 could be like the iPhone 4S.. once you have such a massive market already captured, there is not as much need to revolutionise your product. I mean your at the top of your game as it is, and no one is going to take anything from your right away if you stay MODERATELY competitive. Market appears to be experiencing normal type growth.. not really that fast initial growth the market had a couple of years ago. So to me, I would not be surprised if the phones just have minor updates till someone pushes the limits again.
I mean, if you didn't have to spend big, and also cut your profit margins in half, would you?
Everyone that thinks this is anywhere close to being the GS3 are FOOLS! LoL Im laughing while reading your comments being angry and nervous about how the GS3 will flop. The picture is not the GS3 obviously since the apps are blurred thats the biggest give away that the Original postal dont want you to see since you will immediatly know that its the Galaxy Note with the S pen apps on it..
So people would be disapointed with..
4. 7 HD
Quad core Exynos with LTE
It would still kill all other androids.
Anonymous, 17 Apr 2012I think Samsung should be very careful here. Samsung owners are not as loyal to their brand as... moreWRONG!!!!!!!! At least 90% of Galaxy S contract upgrades I perform are upgrades to an S2, I think you are mistaking your own opinion for fact!! Just because you would change doesn't mean that everyone else would, egotistical much??
Would Samsung reallllly make the same stupid mistake that Apple keep making?
We NEED a major update to a phone like the Galaxy, Apple is tipped to be releasing the iPhone5 this year which will undoubtedly be a major revision over the 4S as per their previous cycle. It would be a HUGE mistake for Samsung to choose this year to release a minor updated Galaxy.
Also...I would not buy it.
Zorril NZ, 17 Apr 2012Yep, hell of a lot more ugly than S2. I def wont be upgrading my Galaxy if it looks like that.Pfft you think it looks all that different to an s2??? Geez I think you should take another look, if you choose your phone on how it looks you may as well buy an lg prada and good luck with that
Has everyone forgotten about the 10 million handsets pre-ordered by stores, this would not be happening if it was just spec bump. The 4S didn't even have that many. I'm expecting them to blow the competition outta the water, nothing less.
DAVE the BRAVE, 17 Apr 2012You mean like pretty much every Samsung phone? Then the answer is a resounding "YES"... moreTrue, I dislike the Samsung U.I. too on my SGS2 so I just went to Google Play Store and downloaded Go Launcher for my phone and now have nice one. I used to have to jailbreak my iphone and spend hours and money to do most things I have on my S2, it took 5 minutes and was mostly free. The wonder of open source. If you're a technophobe and want things dumbass simple, then iPhone is the one for you. I'm am a tech-head and have no need for this though...
May I ask how so many people can be disappointed on a phone that has not come out yet? A phone for which nobody so far has solid proof of the specs or even the look of the phone.
Then there are the people who keep moaning about the type of quad core chip it will be. As an example what real amazing feature has HTC brought with its quad core chip? Answer nothing unless you count Angry birds space running a bit quicker is an amazing feature.
The fact of matter Gsm and other tech sites have had there hand in making the S3 this tech unicorn of a phone with specs so out there that when it does show people will then say Samsung are Rubbish.
To be honest I just ask for a better build and a battery than get me through the whole day plus removable storage everything else will be a bonus
People just need to chill out. Samsung have done something though people have never so far talked about an Android handset so much and the fact that nobody really knows what it looks like is also a plus
That all sounds very trollish and straight outta Cupertino to me and not very Samsung going by their progress. I expect it to be everything that the fantastic S2 wasn't because they actually to their customer base, i.e. built with beter quality materials, but still a great phone which is cutting edge and not just drip feeding tech to customers once every 16 months!!!
Dh33r4j, 17 Apr 2012The iPhone's screen is too small. Within the same dimensions they could have larger screen. Th... moreI also find the iPhone's screen too small even though I've only been used to a Galaxy S for the last year and a half,but it was Steve Jobs little baby and he managed to convince countless millions of people that it was the size they wanted (old Jedi mind trick?).It's still fine for a lot of those same people but I could never live with as even my ' S screen now seems too small in comparison.
One last thing that's always puzzled me is how anyone can describe any mobile phone as ugly? Elephant man was ugly,the death camps at Auschwitz were ugly and wart hogs are considered by some to be ugly.A mobile phone is just a thin,flat rectangular box with a glass screen on the front and some even have rounded corners,which definition of "ugly" does this fit in with?
I don't consider a major update if the display is not RGB HD amoled. If it turns out to be pentile, it will be a huge disappointment.
