He's quite clearly talking about their attitude in their mobile division.

You should have left your high horse at the door, then you wouldn't have hit your head on the way in.

The rest? Yeah, it's not as hardy as the Desire...But what do you expect? The Desire has a metal case.

Why do I have to be on something to see the flaws in the GS3? I am not sure who are worse, Apple people or Samsung people. The S3 comes out and everyone gets on their knees for Samsung all of a sudden, in regard to the phone, completely ignoring the flaws it has. As a whole Samsung makes wonderful products, and I am overall extremely pleased with them, unfortunately for myself, business, friends, and employees the S3 hasn't been great.

3 of the 4 users I am close with that have the S3 all have the same complaints, and all exhibit the same flaws. The 4th person with the S3 simply bought it just because it was "new and cool" and didn't even know how to text prior to buying it!

You can ramble off all the specs you want, and how they are double, triple, or quadruple, that of the Desire. Unfortunately many of these vast improvements don't really translate into anything outside of synthetic benchmarks, as at the end of the day it is still a phone. Not a single person I know who has an S3 can truthfully say that they can browse the web, text, check e-mail, or dial any faster. Faster at gaming and certain app loading? Sure, but we use our phones for business 99% of the time.

I just refuse to put a product on a pedestal because that seems to be the thing to do, or it is the strong opposition to Apple. When I lift a product up, it is because that product truly deserves it.

As the OP I am happy for Samsung.


HOWEVER, I will never own a phone by them again. The Samsung moment was touted as the greatest smartphone of its time. It was horrendous... I mean HORRENDOUS. I swore after I got rid of it I would never own another Samsung phone again. It doesn't surprise me the Galaxy phones are as fragile as apple iphones.... Nokia.. Im coming for you baby. :-p

I'm definitely not a Samsung person, I'm going for a Sony phone in the future. (The Xperia Z)
I also have had 3 Samsung HDDs die in the past few months and I'm now sticking to Intel and Corsair for SSDs, Seagate and currently about to try out WD for HDDs.

I can pull out anecdotal evidence too...I've got a few friends with S3s, two of which upgraded from budget Android phones, one of which bought new..My mother wants to upgrade her Desire to an SGS3 but doesn't want to spend the money (One S for her, I think) on it.
I seriously don't know how your SGS3 can be as laggy as a Desire, I'm comparing stock ROM to stock ROM...It's a well known fact that Gingerbread isn't as smooth as ICS in general, let alone on a single core Snapdragon, I saw a tremendous improvement in how smooth the OS was going from Gingerbread to ICS on my Galaxy S II.
I'm not even saying the SGS3 deserves to be put on a pedestal, it's an average phone IMO and there are better ones out there (I'd rather get a One XL, truth be told) but it certainly isn't as laggy as a Desire is. I'm not even meaning with apps, my mums Desire lags when I'm scrolling through the app drawer, it has such little memory that she's had to uninstall a few older games and stuff (Something that the SGS2, with 2GB App Storage, doesn't have)

His reply would lead me to believe otherwise.

Please retreat under your bridge.

<3 for Sammy here too!

As for those that don't like their phones, I have had my GNEX for about 4 months and it looks new. Got it for 20$ on WireFly with new Sprint contract.
Now when LTE hits San Diego here real soon, I'll be rolling 12mbps unlimited on a sweet phone.
