This may be an odd place to post this,

but I wanted to see if you had more info about something. I've been seeing a lot of reports that Samsung is re-patching the universal search into the international SIII, and I was wondering if you've heard anything similar for the US. I would assume that their recent blow from the US courts would be a barrier to this.

If not, would you happen to have a recommendation for a third party application that would offer similar functionality? Razz

Galaxy SIII reviews question.

For the t-mobile/AT&T variant you reported the battery life as easily clearing 2 days, while the Sprint SIII you estimated to have 30 hours at the most.

Was there a typo somewhere on either review or is there really that substantial of a difference between the two?

Request for Ban of Account

Rich and whomever else runs this site. I have requested in a few places that my account be banned and if possible that you delete all my posts. I am upset that a reply to a post was deleted but more so that you guys sent me an email accusing me of violating the terms of service which IS an outright lie. I made no personal attack against an individual, but rather laughed at the idea that Verizon cares about saving a user money. They don't. That's a fact. Company culture IS: "We are not the cheap carrier nor do we wish to be." I know that first hand from round table discussions sales meetings, sales rallies etc... For you guys to allow a user who only created an account on 7/17/2011 to cause my post to be deleted and THEN to lodge that...

New Phone Compare Features

We've upgraded our side-by-side phone comparison tools.

The big new feature is side-by-side phone size comparisons. You can put up to five phones side-by-side and see which ones are bigger, thinner, etc. It's to scale and includes front and side views for the vast majority of phones.

Also, the whole Compare interface is now much simpler and easier to use. We've eliminated the separate page for building a list of phones to compare. Now you simply go the Compare page and start adding phones.

Finally, you can now easily re-arrange the phones being compared, if you want to see them in a different order.

Please let us know what you think. We'd love to hear your feedback.

when clicking on carriers tab

then filtering phones, you can't separate smart phones from non smart. It would be most helpful if we could. Thanks

Site updates

We've launched a number of changes to the site in recent weeks, including some new ones just today.

First, we overhauled our page tools, including social buttons. At the top-right of every page, you'll find options to email, share, Like, and/or subscribe to whatever is on that specific page. The options are contextual, so they vary depending on what kind of page you're looking at.

As part of this, we also tweaked our RSS feeds for each phone. There's now one feed with news articles and updates, and a second feed for reviews (including user reviews.)

There are also new social links at the bottom of the site.

We also added comment counters (that link directly to comments) on phones on the front page.

Today, we also launched a fe...

Positive feedback!

(Figured I'd give you a break Razz)

I love the little comment bubbles on the phones on your home page. It's a nice touch to be able to see at a glance what phones are being discussed.

Phonescoop Alternative

Is it my imagination or has the traffic on Phonescoop decreased dramatically? I used to get rapid responses to questions and concerns I posted in the forums but not the as much anymore... Have people migrated to other venues, forums, boards, sites? It would be really helpful to know where to go to get the most up-to-date information from active users and those in the know.

post messaging abuse

I've seen threads addressing this issue, and recently had a coworker forward me a post message from another scooper where the individual invested a lot of energy into character assassinating her and called her a four letter c word. She and I were aghast they'd go to such lengths just to be mean.

This wasn't the first scenario I've heard of. Can anything be done about post messaging abuse? Can we cpoy/paste and send to you? Is there a way to block specific scoopers from pm'ing you?

How much of...

and how often do you read the threads in the lounge? With your access of knowing users based on ip's (or however you know that new s/n's are previous users) I bet you would get quite the kick out of some of the drama in there.

Do you notice

more hits on the site when big events are taking place? I mean CES is a big one. But I'm wondering about big news taking place like data plan changes or new devices. When these come up do more people visit the site?
