Samsung GT-i9300?

Is this phone not, in fact, a rebranded Phecda i9300? If so, is there any difference, asside from the huge difference in price?

Just wow

I'm surprised they haven't added Samsung TV's to the mix. Oh wait, they only seem to be going after devices that are in direct competition with them. People can say what they want but, if Samsung wasn't their direct competitor in hardware, i doubt Apple would be doing this. At least, not on such a large scale.

What The (insert choice of explitive)!

Apple is like that chic on Maury that got drunk at a party can't remember quite what had happened and now is parading an entire line of devices, making all kinds of absurd claims, clogging up the court dockets, subjecting everyone to undue test and scrutiny just to get a check. ..

Geesh Phone Baby Mama Drama

COME ON APPLE! Is this really worth the damage this is doing to your once in foul able BRAND? Have you checked the pulse on your Net Promoter Score? There are several consumers out there that will never buy an Apple product not because of your build quality but for this court room BS..

Apples is Afraid. It Is As Simple As That.

For the first time, there is a company (Samsung) and a line of devices (SGII and SGIII) that actually pose a real threat to Apple's market dominance.

And Apple doesn't know how to deal with this new challenge. So they're trying to elliminate it.

Based on the leaked specs, the upcoming iPhone 5 might not be significantly better than the SGIII in many regards. And Apples is worried.

It is as simple as that.

Pride Comes Before the Fall.

Apple may have had a case on the orginal SG series, but the SGIII is completely redesigned and even engineers have stated that Samsung has worked around Apple's designs.

I find Apple has bitten too much of its own Apple. Tim Cook doesnt possess the look or feel of Steve Jobs to carry the torch. Also Sir Jonathan Ives may be the celebrated engineer and developer of the iproducts, but it was Steve Jobs' ideas and implementation that gave John the templates to work with. Tim Cook stood in front of the press in a keynote address after Steve's death. He claimed no one had to worry. Apple still has plenty of ideas to be major competition. I will await to see what this maybe. The most celebrated days of Apple were when Steve Jobs held the ship ...

1 billion Not enough

Looks like Apple is just getting started on Samsung. Samsung is their biggest competition bigger than anyone right now, I too would sue the hell out of them but I would also be watching public opinion.
Why didnt they add the Galaxy 3 from the start? Does not make sense on why just now it was added when its been out awhile. Im thinking this all started from the first galaxy so Apple just waited and waited.

I Just Want To Buy a Phone Without The Drama

I am ready for a new phone and Ive tried to distance myself from the drama but when you allign yourself to a brand by forking over $200+ for a phone and a 24 month commitment and to carry and rely on that device for two years as apart of your life. You kind of as a moral person have to take the bigger picture of who you bought your equipment from and their corporate ethics into consideration.

I was going to wait for the next Apple phone before making my decision but its things like this that make me want to go out now and buy a GSIII today.

I am and have been a loyal Sprint customer since 1998 and I have never waivered with my carrier so with their current equipment line up Android or iOS are my only real choices. I can't wait for Wi...

Ridiculous!

Apple should just try to ban Samsung as a brand from existence at the rate they're going! Some of the lawsuits are justified but they need place there full focus on making their products better. Cook has huge shoes to fill now that Steve Jobs is gone. I'm an iPhone owner and I think this is too much. The SGS3 & the iPhone are different. Give it a rest Apple!

the first memory card slot supporting up to 64 GB

Eh?
>>the first memory card slot ADVERTISING supporting up to 64 GB

-fixed

I've had a 64Gb SDXC card in my GT-i9100 Galaxy S2 for over 6 months already. Every version of the S2 should support any 64Gb card as well.

Install "Aurora" to restore phone search functions

I installed the "pro" version, but it was free. Not sure if it is a trial or just plain free, but it can put a nice android-looking search bar on your desktop and it searches files, contacts, and SMS messages. Those results pop up as you type, and then you can hit enter to do a google search.

The only drawback is you have to use the widget or shortcut on the desktop (the dedicated search key still goes to simple google search).

Now I just need to get the wallpaper to scroll again.

the corporate statements always give me a chuckle.

I Really Hope

Apple's patent is invalidated...who the hell awards these things anyway....is it too much to ask that the people who grant patents be intelligent and informed about the technology they are supposed to be overseeing, so that they will be able to recognize a legitimate claim from a bogus one?

AMOLED Screen

Any clue if the screen still suffers the same burnt image problem as the other AMOLED screens? The S II in my showroom was pretty bad as is the Lumia and other phones with similar screens.

What are the SG3 memory limitations

I have had the HTC Evo 4G (forget about the big deal 4G WiMax)...Never Ever could get it to work.

Anyway, I am continually encountering a "low memory" warning and when I do I lose functionality most notably my email won't send or receive. When I go to my Application Manager I see that there I lose my capability at about 43MB (Free). I assumed this was a RAM measurement but it isn't. I have plenty of free RAM. So this is phone memory, but I don't know how to measure what I Have. Right now it says 371 MB used and 57 MB Free. This is a total of 428 MB Memory. What...???? I though I had gigabites of internal memory.

My question is what is different on the Samsung G3 in this manner. Is this improved by going form 16GB to 32GB in sele...
