They are disappointed me.
But I saw many review and comment about the other android phone like Sony Xperia S, HTC one x there are not much comment about glitches found in those phone.
In my opinion, when the OS is the same, but the way they present is different. So, there is a differ between android phone.
At last, we have the choice to choose our daily use phone. If you like large, colourful and HD screen, I prefer you go get note 2. If you like smooth and less glitches phone, you better get an iPhone. Remember there is always a choice. Have a nice day.
Anonymous, 08 Oct 2012The first part of your post was something about games, but I really didn't understand what you... moreI already saw the video.
First, the Siri vs S voice. Siri and S voice did a plenty of mistakes in the video. But the speed still go for the iPhone and S voice is inaccurate of listening question.
Second, Siri vs GOOGLE SEARCH, not voice assistant. Please note that. I cannot said that google search is weak but there is unfairness to Siri. Siri has its own sources and it just finding the answer in that range. However, google search is most popular search machine in the internet. So, the range is wide for the google search. If I was the guy in that video, I will open the safari in the iPhone and compare to the google search. Is it the same thing? So, google search in jellybean 4.1 is a waste. We don't need that apps, we can just open the web and search for it.

GS3 is the weakest android phone that I never seen before."
I think you were responding to me but thank you for your honest feedback. Even if you weren't. At this point it's really difficult to find an honest oppinon about the S3. People are saying this is the greating phone ever, I read all these glitches about it, makes me think other wise. On top of first hand expierence using this phone. It also feels some s3 users have too much pride to admit any problems of their phone, or to attack it, because it feels like this phone is the anti ip5. If this phone is ineed the best android phone out there, then how many more glitches do other android phones have? anyways, thank you for your oppinon.

Now, for Siri vs. S Voice, can you really compare 2 turds? I don't know what video you saw, but the ones I saw showed both of them suck. Like this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X9YbwtVN8Sk Now if you want a good voice assistant Google Now looks better http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kDsOtdRtG0Q And the S3 will have both once the Jelly Bean update goes live.
Hmm, next some blabbering about how having a fast CPU and a big screen is bad... Completely absurd, I say.
And finally, complete bullshit about how Apple used Android in the past and made iOS because Android was not good enough. Come one, you can do better then that. iOS is in fact older then Android, and Apple created it for the first piece of crap they made: the iPod. They just extended it with phone features for the iPhone.
pleas tell me Mr Omar from Qatar is it international version or not ?can i take it to Iraq beside how much price in dollar there?which one is better this device or note 2?
Anonymous, 07 Oct 2012So lets take your points one by one:
- voice clarity - according to the gsmarena review the S... moreThe software issues is more related to the OS.
GS3 is the weakest android phone that I never seen before.
Some of the apps will crash and the phone hang for minutes.
Android is came from the java platform.
It really can run any games but not so smooth.
That's why the IOS games can be played in an Android phone.
Let us focus on one example:
The most popular game from game loft - Asphalt 7
I have played this game on iPhone 4s and GS3.
First and foremost, the screen resolution is definitely owned by the SG3, but the performance is exactly for the iPhone 4s.
This will refer to the user likes. If user likes a colorful HD screen, get the GS3; if user likes fast and smooth performance, get the iPhone 4s.
On my side, I will prefer iPhone 4s than the GS3.
Second, the voice command: apple - Siri/Samsung - S voice
You can see the video of the comparison on YouTube, there is clearly shows that the S voice is weaker than the Siri. Accuracy of receiving question from user in GS3 is sh@t. You have to ask the same question for many times until the S voice can hear you.
From above, we can conclude that S voice is a failure in GS3.
iPhone 4s won for this section.
Samsung use more processor to make android smoother to distract the user attention. In this point, many of the user also think that the more processor that a phone had, the faster the performance of the phone. However, Samsung also provide large screen to hide the weakness of android and let it looks "perfect".
So, don't be fooled by android, it's not as good as you think.
Many years ago, Apple also using the android as its devices OS. Then, why Apple stop using android when they create IOS??? The answer is android is weak.
Ehis, 05 Oct 2012Samsung has no plans whatsoever of bringing a galaxy SIV. The galaxy note III will be standing... moreYou are not as tech savvy as you claim to be. Galaxy s phones (including i9000) all have an office viewer and editor, so I have no idea what you are talking about. Have you ever used any of the galaxy S phones?
I see some comments here, "best phone" "best phone I ever had"
like really? Or are you guys have too much pride to admit the glitches and problems with this phone? There no f in way, you guys don't see this! Every s3 user has to have noticed these random glitches that appear every now and then! I used the s3 for a good 10 minutes, I noticed 4 glitches already. Is this really the best "big" thing? For real?? You need ads like that to tell people it's the next big thing? You guys are hilarious. Turn your blind eye on its glitchs and problems, but still love it to death. I praise you guys for that.

Kamaal, 06 Oct 2012Primary requirement: voice clarity, good range, software issues, camera clarity, battery charg... moreSo lets take your points one by one:
- voice clarity - according to the gsmarena review the S3 has better voice quality then any iPhone
- good range - I don't know about this, no review that I saw measured it, but previous iterations of the iPhone used to be notoriously bad at this
- software issues - here you may have a point, a strictly controlled system is easier to be kept stable, but it comes with major drawbacks. Basically an iPhone will do what Apple wants it to do, not what you want. If you can live with that, good for you
- camera clarity - again, not sure if the iPhone 5 is better, but the S3 camera is not bad either
- battery charge - are you serious? The battery is one of the weakest points of the iPhone
- error free operation - isn't this the same thing as "software issues"? Or are you saying the S3 also has hardware issues?
And did you check the second-hand market for iPhone 4S? There are plenty of those at low price, I hope you were not comparing with second-hand iPhone 5, the 5 is not even available in my country yet, so where do expect sh units to come from?
And one final thing, about the so called "quality" of the iPhone, chipped cases and broken maps are the result of that high quality standards? I'll take the Samsung "low quality" over that any time.
Kamaal, 06 Oct 2012Primary requirement: voice clarity, good range, software issues, camera clarity, battery charg... morei've tested iPhone 5 and Galaxy SIII in the shop and find that Iphone keep lagging and respond taking Samsung on another hand runs without any delay..
Battery charge, hahaha this is a ridiculous claim, of course the GS3 takes longer, the GS3 battery is a third bigger and longer lasting! As for "software issues" and "error free operation", that is complete nonsense, Android 4.0 and 4.1 is far superior the the apple IOS that has remained almost identical since iphone 1. Finally, good range depends on the network a lot more than the phone, so you pulled this one out of nowhere, and if you read any review, they will say the iphone has a better camera/image quality.
