    Great hardware but not the OS, well at least it crashes fewer times a day compared to original SGS I had few years ago.

    Samsung makes the hardware that consumers want and uses standard options like Micro USB, MicroSD card slot, and a removable battery. Love this phone, its what I've been wanting for many years! Grats to Samsung on this remarkable accomplishment.
  6. Samsung just like apple is 1 of the major customers of foxconn... keep those costs low and suicide nets up at the foxconn factories in China

    No shortage of trolls on Samsung behalf ...
  8. Congrats Samsung.
    I wont be upgrading though,my sister has the SIII and after messing around with it I still prefer my SII.
  9. The only reason they have many sold is because they have to replace the one that do not work! I am on my 6th one.

    While I liked my Galaxy S2, a lot of people I know have found the S3 to be a bit, fragile.

    It may be a random occurrence, but SGS I've used to have, had serious issues with USB connectivity along with host of other issues. Similarly SGS II I used, its screen would go green* (along with crashes and other issues), this SGS3 also suffers from these ills but with lesser frequency, although its screen went green on a single instance as well; and I am not going to talk about its cheap/plasticky feel in the hand.

    To sum it up, I wouldn't be surprised if someone goes through several units to get one which at least works consistently for a while.

    * I suspect it got to be some issue with their Mali 400 GPU driver.
