donyouth, 10 Jun 2012This unit for t-mobile does not have LTE, so why does it come with the dual core chip? A quad ... moreThe international version does "NOT" support the 1700/2100 band, witch t-mo USA uses. Therefore the reason for the dual core down grade. I hear rumors that t-mo USA is currently moving there 4g (1700/2100) to 1900 witch would make the I9300(international Version) Compatible with the same top speeds currently available on t-mobile USA, as well as the current AT&T HSPA+ (NOT LTE). So if t-mo rumors are true it would be well worth buying the I9300 version but if your like me you would have to suck it up to an at&t MVNO like RedPocket, than once the t-mo 1900 switch is complete by the end 0f 2012 switch back to t-mo or an MVNO like simple mobile witch sucks. I'm gonna go with T-mo monthly 4g cause simple mobile customer service sucks and if a dealer puts the wrong plan there's no correcting it, sucks and lame.
So for the noobs around here, i’ll just show you why this gs3 version beats the original version(i9300)...well, the truth is, this version of gs3 has no disadvantages against the gs3(i9300)...
a 1.5ghz dualcore krait is equal or to a 2.1ghz dual core exynos...though, many will still say “but exynos is still quadcore”...for god’s sake, you don’t need too much extra cores for a phone unless you’ll be playing hardcore PC games in it(which is impossible)...all you need is a faster processing frequency, so a dual core cpu is more than enough...well you can check the benchmarks, and you will see that the dual core krait beats the quadcore exynos4212 any day...for battery matters, krait processors are battery savers so the 2100maH charge capacity will be enough to last more than a day or two, unlike the exynos version that barely lasts a day....temperature problems were also minimized in krait processors....and for the gpu matters, adreno225 is just equal to mali-400mp...
(does tasks faster and better, battery lasts longer, cooler temps) = perfect galaxy s3
This unit for t-mobile does not have LTE, so why does it come with the dual core chip? A quad code chip should have been installed. I am sure lots of customers would opt for this device.

ajinomoto, 07 Jun 2012Galaxy s3, iphone 5 or Rzor Maxx?s3 or htc evo 4g lte.
I have purchased this product day before yesterday from Samsung Plaza showroom in India .... it has fantastic camera ...Image stabilisation is great ... fantastic voice quality... Internet functions are fast ....the drawback is that the phone is not handy ... I feel it is too big for holding it..( i cant blame the company its my fault) ... Another issue , which i have still to confirm is , the battery drains fast .... Some of of my friends told me that I should have purchased Apple iphone4S instead of this ... No comments from my side as I have never used i phone4S sofar ... i will renew my comments after a few days
