  1. The beast released: Samsung Galaxy S III is official

    [​IMG]General: GSM 850/900/1800/1900 MHz, UMTS 850/900/1900/2100 MHz, HSDPA 21 Mbps, HSUPA 5.76 Mbps; 4G (regional))
    Slap WP8 on it (which is rumored to be the case anyway) and it will be a nice option for my next SP provided:

    1. Screen size is between 4/4.3"
    2. Non-Pentile S AMOLED Plus screen
    3. It can shed the 'plasticky / cheap' image of previous Galaxy line

    Lastly, the likes of Samsung + LG + HTC etc. have wrongly shifted focus from 'software' side of things to hardware. Only Apple seems to have better focus on software side of things, with ambition to provide a more 'compelling' user experience.That is why iOS is still a better platform compared to android.

    Hence, It will be prudent if someone else (may be MS*) does follow Apple in this regard. As example of Lumias vs various dual core droids clearly shows that single core SoCs provides great performance provided the resources are used 'efficiently'.

    * MS provides 5/10 years service for its enterprise/OS etc. solutions, so 3 years service a mobile device seems reasonable point to start with.

    hardware is second to none, but the apperance and the APP like S-voice is just passable .
