The states get a worse processor than the international ?

Why are the States getting a $#;++;er processor than the international version? Did the s3 suffer this fate too? This reminds me of the HTC One X(L) for AT&T. I bought it (the X) because of the RAVE reviews here and elsewhere, and it's been a major disappointment from day 1. Will Samsung release an octacore version in 6 months ala the One X+, thereby screwing consumers who bought their "flagship" device (hello HTC!)? Nah. I'm too burnt by the One X to trust any of these guys now. I may get an s3 when it's cheaper and ROOT THE EFF out of it. Seems like a better option.

Yes, this happens all the time... European models get all the untested hardware first kinda like Guinepigs. US customers get tested and approved hardware so 4 Cores is all we are getting this year.

You know since americans think they are entitled to everything an complain more then a 5 year old. Smile

Wait, what? I thought we got a different processor in the GS3 because the stock processor for the international version was incompatible with our LTE networks?

They did at least compensate us (to an extent) with double the RAM of the International.

AT&T had the gs3 refurbished for $30! Hope it's up to its hype. I can't use Navigator or Smart Truck on my phone now. One of HTC's "features" (their words not mine) is they kill apps for you so they can't run in the background. Nav only works in 2d mode now. Common problem on One X, rooted or otherwise. I'm really hoping I like the gs3.
