had to send my S3 back to vodafone today, after using it for just over 1 week, i found a few niggles, the speaker is on the back next to the flash, so when you have the phone on a flat service or in yr pocket the ringtone is very very quiet, even when turned up to the loudest setting, i missed so many calls unlike my S2 ive had for over 1 year, the sound from that was always clear & loud,
also when you use predictive text & 'add your own words' into the device, the S3 looses all of them, if the phone is turned off, it doesnt save them like the S2 or most other phones out in the marketplace,
i also bought a s line cover from ebay, once fitted its very difficult to use the volume + off button etc, last problem, it randomly calls people too?? few niggles that i hope smasung will sort out, but for now, im keeping my S2 :)
PRIDE, 06 Jun 2012Except that g3 has NFC as well as a quad core chip.I said the GS2 with Android 4.0 = ALMOST, ALMOST the GS3. So the GS3 is better in many ways still it's not enough for me to purchase the GS3. I (not you) rather keep my GS2 which in my point of view got a better design than the GS3 and run both Android 4.0.3.
So don't tell me the GS3 does this or that because I know.
Then which phone will satisfy all the requirements of greedy brains .. So wats the deal, well here everyone is behind defending ter own opinions.. None of them are really experts . A big time waste . Shit//!..One phone will be better than others in some features... So people should select what they like. Who are you to tell people not to buy the Samsung galaxy S3... :|

I own the SGS2 and just have seen the SGS3 in store.
Although I appreciate the SGS3's features and the bigger screen, over the SGS2, I dislike the SGS3's design. I'll prefer the SGS2's corner's shape - not so rounded as SGS3 has, the lack of a black model - that is looking more "serious" and in the same time more fancy because the screen itself is not visible delimited by the bezel. Also, I prefer the the SGS2's back camera housing, the one from the SGS3 is looking "cheaper".

Sineth Lowe, 06 Jun 2012Guys,need help with the colour.... The white seems cool but a bit girlish??? Has anyone had th... moreI cancelled my pre order for the blue with VF due to the wait and went to my local VF shop who had the white 32Gb in stock.The white is STUNNING,a really beautiful handy.
I was among those who questioned the design when looking at the photos,I needn't have worried, the photos do not do the handset justice in the slightest.
This is my first white phone and I love it, I'm guessing the blue will be equally as appealing.
P.S the phone itself is superb.
many people are rich but dumb. keep on buying things but can't use it well.
macoi, 05 Jun 2012yeah, i strongly agree. It's so HUGE. So HUGE!!! I thought the screen size of the original gal... moreHave u seen the s3 and s2 side by side? They are about the same size, even though the s3 has larger 4.8 inch screen. Samsung reduced the bezel to make the screen larger which is good IMO. The iPhone 4s has a ridiculously big bezel, apple can manufacture a phone with same size and increase the screen to 4 inches, will u say it's too big? I will give u another example. The Nokia lumia 900 is 4.3 inches and most people will say its the perfect size. But this phone has a dimension that is not too far from the htc one x or s3 even though it has a smaller screen and it is thicker and weighs more. I believe what these phones have in screen size they gain in slimness, hence slimmer phones and utilizing slim bezel for bigger screens. Place the Titan 2 beside the lumia 900 and u will see they are about the same size.

Guys,need help with the colour.... The white seems cool but a bit girlish??? Has anyone had the blue??? how does it look... it doesnt look that good in photos though.....
Droid Terminator, 06 Jun 2012Galaxy S2 with Android 4.0 = almost the Galaxy S3. So for me no need to go for the GS3. Except that g3 has NFC as well as a quad core chip.
