The point is that they do not have to even try anymore because they have their herd in tow. All they have to do is pretend like everything in their phone is elegantly designed for perfection - which they still do in their ads, focusing on the nuances of the iPhone like it's so well designed and perfect that everything is designed to a "t". Listen to any of the herd members and they will recite to you exactly how perfectly designed Apple's products are. Those are the same people that don't care if there are obvious problems with a product (not that this particular issue is a problem) form Apple because they will buy it simply because it is from Apple and assume it's perfect. Logic be damned!

It annoys me because my SII is riddled with bugs and no one jumped up and down about that, it is light and plasticy yet no one got up in arms about that. Furthermore this phone is far from perfect, yet Android fans treat it like the holy grail. The SIII was a mediocre upgrade and yet no one complained about that either.

Anyone who pointlessly hates any company on this forum should just be banned, OCN needs objectivity, not bias en-mass.
You say OCN needs objectivity, but you clearly have none. Last time I checked, the SGS2 was not marketed like any Apple product, so your entire rant is moot. You don't have to expect them to market their product as mediocre despite the fact that it is, but that doesn't justify the lies they've ingrained in the masses as you imply. And the S3 a mediocre upgrade? Yeah, you're a beacon of objectivity all right.

Edit: And the SGS3 is indeed far from perfect. Although this is subjective, I'd have preferred the hardware be more like what the LG Otpimus G is (though I also haven't noticed any performance issues - even in graphically intense games - so I cannot complain except for my preference for a power efficient LCD screen over AMOLED). With that said, the popularity of the SGS3 means its developer support is second-to-none, so it's really hard to beat. It came out at the right time (Verizon's unlimited data grandfathering ending, before the iPhone 5), had significant CPU and RAM hardware improvements over anything else available at the time, and so it is naturally going to be popular. I also only see Samsung marketing features that exist with the SGS3 that the iPhone doesn't have, while poking fun at the herds of iSheeple. None of that is a lie like those in past generations of Apple ads - which the current ones take advantage of.

If it is indicative of all AMOLED screens, then it is a tech issue in which case that particular tech is not for me. I personally prefer IPS. Would it keep me from purchasing the GS3? Absolutely.

I purchased an HTC One X for reference. I have not had any issues with this phone be them hardware or software. It has met all my PERSONAL expectations since I purchased it...

Father and Mother purchased iPhone 5's of which I have spent a lot of time on, configuring, troubleshooting, and assisting them with.
(I do not live with my parents)

I purchased my fiance the HTC EVO 4G LTE.

My boss owns the GS3. Trying to get it from him and go into a dark area at work currently to bare witness to the "black spots" biggrin.gif

Hmm, interesting, I own an iPhone 5, so doe my brother, his girlfriend, a work college and 2 other friends and not one of us has the purple haze issue, or this green fraction of a second green glow issue...

It would be interesting to know how widespread this is...

If this qualifies as news, then there are plenty of news articles that could be written about phones I've previously had. I had the numpad on my Motorola ROKR go out on me, is that news?
My iPhone 4S occasionally (maybe 1 in 100 calls) won't let me swipe to answer when somebody is calling. That's much more serious than a fraction of a second of a slight green glow, and it's still not news worthy.

This^^

The problem Apple is facing is that they charge a premium for a product that is touted as nothing but the best of the best in terms of quality.

Its actually one of the largest talking points when it comes to their products and with competition on a massive rise, one of the things that keeps iProducts "ahead", so the moment production starts slipping up, its easy meat for people to attack and question said "premium" product.
