HAHA, 14 Jan 2013galaxy sold millions. how about lumia? lots of shipment but stuck with carriers. even multipl... moreI don't know how well does lumia sell(I don't have your carriers info) and I don't care that much either(not on this topic at least and Nokia seemes to be happy), I was just curious about a number of actualy sold phones besides those shipped, returned and shipped again under different names (S2 plus) or with different coloured back covers...yet again there's no limit for fanboysm
I am using galaxy note 2 and so far the best smartphone i ever had. Screen size will definitely be subjective and for me screensize is important as i am fond of watching videos or movies i have dloaded.superb feature and performance. ;)

HAHAHA!
For those who really do not want big modern displays, Sony Xperia V is the perfect phone, small display but still HD, and its waterproof, supports lots of LTE bands and has good performance and VERY good build quality. Its the closest you get to a reduced size flagship today.
No surprise as sammy crosses these landmarks... Samsung has overtaken apple in this race, and no matter how hard anyone tries to deny this fact,, it can be easily felt in the very nerves of mighty apple itself who is trying its level best to suppress samsung... Samsung has done everything from software innovations to best hardware,it tries its best and is the fastest provider of updates to its flagships and they best part is that they are improving consistently..... Ohh,nxt u would be thinking of criticising its plastic design,its not b'cos other materials like glass/plastic are contraindicated ,, its so b'cos it not only makes the device lighter but also more handy even with that larger screen size,,,, I personally feel there is much more to the present day cell phone than some artistic feel, the best example to this is nokia, they look better than iphone but still a failure ..

Because they saw that those 4in androids they are mocking is actually eating into their marketshare. android started the 4in trend and apple is only following the bandwagon. even 7in trend in tablet was started by android. apple is just following the trend. no longer is apple the trend setter, because apple is afraid to innovate. its been 5 years and nothing much has changed with their iphone.

Ok im confused coz wasnt it that the ifans not long ago saying 4" s... moreYes 3.5 inch was always the best, and the resolution at HVGA (320x480) was more than enough, noone needed more resolution and only apple was smart enough to understand that. Only stupid people would use more than 3.5 inch at 320x480. Thats what they sall said, and i mean ALL. I had a Nokia N900 at the time and iphone users always told us how bad our phones were at 480x800, noone needed that much.
This just confirms that iphone users want the same as Android users, its just that they want it two years later.
Anonymous, 14 Jan 2013Orzz.. Same to you!.. Last time 4.3 samsung .. say is big .. now 5.5 say good can hold no ... moresize is subjective. if its so big, why is it selling like hotcakes? You have to realize that not everyone has the same hands and not everyone has the same preferences when it comes to size. It just so happens that with a bigger screen, you can do so much more. And that is what people see in these samsung smartphones. So i say, dont be hypocritical and just offer choices to the people and let them decide. Thats the reason why samsung has the s3 and s3 mini and note 2. CHOICEs. it is good.

Even Apple agree with it.
Screen size will increase when a smartphone have more and more features that required a larger screen.
Last time no one would think of watching full HD movies on a smartphone. Nowadays, it is something great to have.
Reading an ebooks and watching HD movies on 5 inches screen is just priceless.
As i said, if you do not like large screen phones, just go for 4 inches with proper screen ratio. There are many varieties like S3 mini.
Jason, 14 Jan 2013Is build quality really that important?
IPhone 5 build quality is really that good?
Look at ... morethe quality of apple's Iphone 5 is way way better than android at all
see Nova 3 and most wanted 2012 on both Ipad 4 and galaxy nexus 10...Ipad has a lot of effects and runs very smooth but the nexus 10 is smooth but missing a lot of graphics and effects which found on Ipad 4
BTW I'm not fan of both...and If I'll choose I'll go for Nexus 10 due to do more things than Ipad4.
But the quality of IOS is way better than Android.
Android crashes on Quad core...it's quantity not the quality you get but at all it's cheaper and do more than IOS so I loved it more.
whos cheap now?? selling cheap products.
iphone 5 prone to bending
[deleted post]Orzz.. Same to you!..
Last time 4.3 samsung .. say is big .. now 5.5 say good can hold no problem .. when in fact its dropping like pieces of soap!
4 inch is beauty.. look at s2 and ip, both very nice looking.. why make such big phones?? People with small hands need to enjoy flagship phones 2!!
Samsung is nothing without andriod... Maybe a fright or a microwave #Justsaying

I love the proper screen size on S3.
Its a pleasure to watch HD movies on the S3.
It fit my hand comfortably even with a protector cover on.
If you need a small screen, you can go for S3 mini.

IPhone 5 build quality is really that good?
Look at all the scratches issue Iphone 5 have with its aluminuim body.
For me, build quality is not important. Whether i get an iphone or S3, i will still buy a protector.
As for apps, it is about quality and not quantity.
Can you name one apps which is pratical and good that IOS have but not Android?
What else is better in an Iphone except the number of apps?
I will never go for Iphone unless one day Iphone can provide the list of things below:
-Play mp4 full HD movies.
-USB mass storage in any PC.
-Bluetooth transfer files to any bluetooth enabled devices.
Cherry, 14 Jan 2013peaple who comment in samsung side are basically poor peaple they dont have money to buy premi... moreActually i'm not poor and its not an insult BTW and probably i make in one month much more what you make in your whole life.
And i have Note II. So it doesn't matter if you poor or rich what it matters if you have value for your money, why would i buy Sony? their phones are so outdated and cheap they build their phones in the cheapest place and claim quality! and Apple too do the same.
Xperia S is the best example its very cheap in materials and outdated, no microSD and poor battery life and bad CPU/GPU +Screen is not as good as the one in S III.
