    Meh, i still think this is nice. Gives other companies more of a chance to grab market share in the Andriod market.

    Mindless Samsung drones will still be buying this phone, but I truly think the HTC One X is a better phone. Not because of better specs or anything - you know that I could care less about the specs in a phone. After all, how a phone feels in your hand is much more important than specs that provide nearly no visible improvements now that CPUs are all so powerful.

    Some of the worst things about the SIII which I'm really disappointed about (SII owner here)

    -No LTE support
    -No Super AMOLED HD Plus, RGB > Pentile anyday
    -No improvement to the MP of the camera
    -No black model (for now)

    now the Galaxy S4 wait starts :)

    You do know MP means nothing in-terms of camera quality right?

    I'll be a fool and say I didn't know that, but I shall persevere!

    Not having 4G/LTE support is stupid for mainstream phones. In fact Verizon is trying to push new customers into not getting the iPhone since the iPhone does not have 4G/LTE support and they are sucking up all the bandwidth of their 3G and their LTE has plenty of room.

    Raichama was as wrong about this as he was with the camera. The SGS3 has LTE support. It's one of its most advertised features, in fact.

    Yes, embarrassing fail there. However I own a Galaxy S3. International one in fact, and it doesn't support America's LTE, nor does it support International LTE. You must buy a phone on contract here in the US in order to get a GS3 that supports LTE, which of course you lose the prestigious bragging rights of having an Exynos Quad.

    However, with the UK getting LTE now, I hope the international phones will start coming with at least the 700 band for LTE outside of the US

    My buddy at AT&T said they couldn't find a way to get the quad S3 to work with LTE without the processor frying.

    That's because the Quad-Core SGS3 (Korean original) isn't designed to do LTE in the USA. If he bought one from an American carrier it would work just fine...

    My contract just finished on T-Mobile and planning to upgrade in a few days. Planning to get this with the Full monty plan.

    I was a bit dissapointed that EE won't be available to Samsung GS3 without the LTE. But oh well I still like it. My dad was saying that I should just buy an Iphone 5 since the per month for 5 is only £36 pm. While SGS3 is £33 but I don't like iphone.

    I'm more of an android person. Was planning to get the HTC One X but it cost £41 pm and that's out of my budget - So I get the next best thing...This phone but from what I've seen I'll like this phone.
