Anonymous, 28 May 2012The tests already showed that the wolfson did outperform. No, it did not. Look at the One S audio tests an the GS3 tests. The One S outperforms it in every way except frequency response.
Jackskellington6sic6, 02 Jun 2012Exactly. They are very good at deceiving.
And that is what works best here.
Not that other ... moreDeceive is harsh word for it, but true in a sense. Its more like only telling you what they want you to hear/know.
It's all Marketing - and like you said everyone does the same. It's how they sell their products.
Apple happen to be exceptionally good at it.
And they're good at making things simple - hence more appealing to many. Like Facetime - all it is is video calling over wifi, basically Skype. Yes, its been around for ages, but Apple made it really simple, so it was easy to sell.
Simple = Success = Easy Marketing
Although the Galaxy s3 is on the ugly side and plastic construction is a turn off, it still has everything I expect from a 2012 advance Android smartphone. Will I get it?... I just put in my order last night. I currently use the HTC One X but the lack of expandable memory is a problem for me. HTC failed to give me a "do it all, without worrying" device by limiting my storage to 16GB (Correction, its even less than that). Anyhow's as much as I love HTC I got to give the thrown to Samsung for giving me everything I need in one future proof device.
hey just wondering guys who have received their phone, would you rather the 16gb then expand it to more or, get the 32gb standard?? speed transfer wise thanks
Got mine yesterday in white (couldn't wait for blue as originally pre-ordered)and it's nice that for once something actually does live up to the hype.
Biblically fast as a web browser,superb display that is impossible to tell if it's pentile or RGB unless you have microscopes for eyeballs and everything that is supposed to work does work.
My only complaint is that the back button is too sensitive and gets pressed all too easily by accident when using it in landscape format.There doesn't seem to be a setting to alter this in ICS,so maybe an external app somewhere that will let you adjust it?

Not that other people offer truths and superiority.
Just that Apple can deceive you better.
Congrats man. Got mine today. Yes quite an amazing device. Very beautiful.

Perception IS Reality and Apple is very good at creating a perception that their devices do it simpler, better, and look good. They make things easy for the masses and make it look slick while it's doing it.
"Wow, that phone looks nice. It looks slim. Looks like its made of quality materials. Got an even better, sharper Retina display. Looks faster. Looks like it's easier to do things. Its got a better CPU/GPU. That Siri looks (and sounds) so clever!"
The facts don't matter - it's what I (people) believe that does. If Apple say the above, and they've sold 50 million, then it must be true! :-|
The i5 will have larger higher res screen, be slimmer, have latest cpu (faster), improved camera and iOS6 at the very least. And called the best iPhone ever. This alone will gaurantee it outsells 4S.
Launched in India Rs.41380 MRP, So Mkt price would be around 38-39k...beyond my reach :( have to go for SII with ICS preinstalled
Generic_man, 30 May 2012Well im no Apple fan boy (i use a nokia lumia) but i work on the high street for a big mobile ... moreHow then??? I went yesterday to the main retailer here in Luxembourg and had to make a reservation as the first bunch of S3 is completely sold out for this week already. Not bad if you consider how many droids there are competing against each other.
I got my S3 yesterday and am very pleased with it. I thought it would feel way to plastic and cheap but that is not the case. Everything is blazing fast and the screen is amazing no complaints so far. But I know the real test will be in a month's time when I have been using it daily. The battery hold's up well a full day easily
Generic_man, 30 May 2012Well im no Apple fan boy (i use a nokia lumia) but i work on the high street for a big mobile ... moreThis is true. IPhone has always won by popularity and sadly might always. Society rules with its stupid views on a fake world

The iPhone would have to release with killer smashing specs and new design to make up for what iOS lacks in order to ever come out on top
Well im no Apple fan boy (i use a nokia lumia) but i work on the high street for a big mobile retailer, and today weve had 1 person all day ask about the GS3 and thats it, zero other interest, compare that to the iphone launch when ppl were queing out the door on launch day, just saying sales win the war not specs,
AnonD-56771, 29 May 2012With this super specs, Galaxy S3 may be in the top of every smartphone now, I wonder what phon... moreiPhone 5 DUH ! :P
anyway i am ditching both S3 nd ONE X to see what iPhone 5 delivers.....if it cant then well will pick up one of these droids
