All phones do that these days. Either that or throttle.

I'd agree with you if you had an S4 but not so much with the S3.

- Much better CPU/GPU
- Much better Camera
- Much better Display/Resolution
- Much better battery life
- Lighter and Thinner

I think people are confused because overheating implies that the phone throttles from the heat or something. Just getting hot is not really an issue unless of course it's hot enough to burn you.

The article claims that overheating is in fact an issue, speculating that throttling is causing lower benchmark score, but provides no proof for that claim. He doesn't comment on how hot the device feels though.

Not here. I have no issue with battery life on my S3, I like the camera just fine (for a phone camera), the size and weight are perfect for my needs, and the CPU/GPU plow through whatever app or game I choose.

So, yes. It's completely possible that some people have no need for an extended feature set when their current phone still holds up like a champ. I myself am in that category. I'm not going to upgrade and pay for a new device if the one I have doesn't slack in any area's that I need it to perform well in.

Not everyone needs more.. more.. more. That's basically what I am getting at here.

I didn't say it was not possible for some people to have no need for an extended feature set.

No extended feature set was even quoted.

The above quote only had standard features.

I am not implying S3 users need to be upgraded either. I know I could never use a S3, was a terrible phone.

I only got with samsung after the Note 2.

It has nothing to do with brand loyalty, love for ugly round corners, or anything like that. It is simply a matter of the SGS line offering necessary features that no one else has.
This is one of the reasons I love the Galaxy line, almost everyone else seems to think removable battery and SD cards are unimportant... I don't get it.

Worse is that Google seems to be of the same mentality. KitKat tries to destroy the usefulness of SD cards, have to root to give apps write access.

Huh? No it wasn't. It's certainly been surpassed in the last 2 years though. Mine has served me well.

Eh....I've had a GS2 for over 2+ years now.

I had really hoped by now TouchWiz would be a lot different / better.
It's improved yes, but it's still bogs things down as I've read in various reviews compared to other layovers.

Not all of us root our phones, so before that flame brigade launches - just stop.

You can still install a different launcher without root I'm pretty sure.

Granted, I don't entirely remember exactly what's controlled by the launcher and what's controlled by the system. I know the home screen/app drawer stuff is launcher, but the settings and I think notifications panel is probably not customizatable. Downside is of course you lose some of the features touted by Samsung because they're controlled by TouchWiz.
