i am tired of hearing htc/s2 has more user available ram than s3.
well it may but dont you think it being near 800 is more than enough, i mean even the heaviest hd game takes about 100-150 mb of ram, make this double if you have 2 games running =300 mb, i still have 500 mb left
add music player, internet,bakground downloading over internet, updating apps from play store and other stuff here and there, it will still have more than 350 mb left
i mean how many stuff are you willing to do at once
here i have already counted more than 7-8 apps ( heavy ones ) and it still has that much ram which is user available in s1, around 350
another thing, s2 might have 70-80 mb more ram, but ill pick s3's ram anyday because it is dual channel.
think of a busy road and there is only one road for all the traffic to come and go, there is no divider and seperate roads for incoming and outgoing traffic, thats the scenario with s2 ram, even though its 1 gb but when app are minimized in background, they are still active on ram and after its filled more than 500 mb or so and you launch a new app, it would not hang but take more time for opening as the way from which the processor and ram communicates is already filled with lots of data but in s3, ram has dual channel, i.e. two different roads for incoming and outgoing, two ways to communicate with the processor, if one way fills up, it uses the second
for proof, check antutu benchmark of s2 vs s3
in ram department, s2 scores about 1000 while s3 scores above 2000
DSN, 04 Jun 2012lithium po are not better than lithium ion batteries... read this first The lithium-ion ba... moreNowwadays in a cell phone a lithium polymer would be much more usefull. they last about just as long. dont have much difference in cost to manufacturer. are much smaller with higher capacities.
avenger, 06 Jun 2012this phone will be flop because
1-even primary kid can make better disign than this
2-price ... moreLmao. Some people will babble on with the most ridiculous garbage ever just to make false points.
1. the design is simple not ugly. Its all preference what you like. the point is its made to be more user friendly and comfortable in design.
2. its the most advanced up to date phone out. I didnt see anywhere in that you said anything else was too high. So its ok for lesser qualities to cost high but not the best?
3. You have never used one yet so you wouldnt know. if you cant hold and use a bigger phone dont get one.
4.The quads coming out are getting very efficient. batteries are getting bigger. some things can use it and in the future when things get much more intensive your 1-3 year old phone will have the power to handle it.
5. big system needs lots of ram. it still had at least 2/3 of 1gb ram available. you wont use that much, plus other version has 2gb. whats your point.
6. depends. its a give and take. I saw to videos. one siri did better other s voice did better. neither are epic.
7.camera is best 8mp out there. check the tool on here. it also has zero shutter lag and the best full hd video recording. whats wrong? its not 12 or 42mp? please. you wouldnt know what to do with that.
-look is preference. and you seem to repeat a lot. if more than 4inches is too much for you then go away, quit trolling, and get a 4inch phone.
Android has plenty of usefull apps. If you only need a few than any app store will suffice.
Apple is the biggest scam ever. If you want to be locked in and told what to do with your device then be our guest and vanish into the crowd.
samsung and apple make that retina. not apple. plus this is an hd phone with about the same ppi so you get the same clarity but on a screen thats over an inch bigger and amoled so way better. Also please learn to type.
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 for everything else the s3 has over the s2. if you would rather get the s2 or something else thats fine, but no need for troling and lying
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.
i am also having the same problem with the notification and worse i am having problem with the screen too, the whole screen flickers like a old tv as if you are trying to tune it... i think their is a bug in ICS or atleast in this version of ICS for Galaxy S3
i am very dissapointed this time never had problem with galaxy s 2.......
sasaascs, 06 Jun 2012hi guys,
my s3 need charging more than 8hours for 100% full, Its that normal? WTH! I hope ... moreUsually, if u use a direct charging from the wall socket, the max output is 1amp (1000mA). From a computer, usually is capped at 0.5amp (500mA)
So charging from the wall socket will be much faster compare to a computer USB port, depending on battery capacity, usually full charge from almost deplete may take about 4-5hrs.
my s3 need charging more than 8hours for 100% full, Its that normal? WTH! I hope GSMARENA can suggest to SAMSUNG to build faster charger device next time.. it drain so fast..
its a very nice phone if you are not using it plz dont make bad cuments,,,....because i think its worlds best smartphone i ever used
Droid Terminator, 06 Jun 2012Galaxy S2 with Android 4.0 = almost the Galaxy S3. So for me no need to go for the GS3. if someone give me s2,s3 both at same price 27k

this phone will be flop because
1-even primary kid can make better disign than this
2-price is too high
3-very difficult to handle
never in crowded area
4-no need to quad core ,it cunsumes battery
as now a days ,there is no app which need quad core
5-user avail ram is less compared to even gs2
6- s voice is not as good as siri
i don't like a look of s3 and one x
due to the look i buy wave3 [1month/16k]], xperia arc [14 month/29K]
wave3 with full metalic body with 4.0 super amoled
its slim too and
4.0 is more than enough
when it comes to apps
i need only some usefull apps
its there in its app store
and i play only gameloft games and 13 gameloft hd games available in app storesoon i will sell my se arc at 13000
and buy new ipod touch 4g 16gb at 16000
