    Samsung Reports that They Have Already Sold Over 10 Million Galaxy S III Smartphones


    Well, that was quick. Samsung reported to the Korean news agency, Yonhap, that they have already sold 10 Million Galaxy S III smartphones. This means they have already out-paced sales of their previous flagship, the Galaxy S II, by a factor of over two to one. The SGS2 sold 10 Million units in about five months. The SGS3 has hit that same number in about two months. This amounts to about 190,000 SGS3's sold every day.

    Samsung projects this trend to continue through the third quarter, and anticipate selling twice that number by the end of the year, even after the iPhone 5 is released later in the fourth quarter.

    Got the phone at a subsidized of 150 at Gowireless and am keeping my unlimited as well through some workarounds. I'm completely used to keyboard phones~ and was hesitating on getting a new slate phone. However this thing is just, beautiful. Like the instant I put my eyes on just a picture, I wanted it. Getting it into my hands, even better. With such a large screen, typing isn't as bad as I thought (still slower than qwerty by far of course) once you replace the stock keyboard with Swiftkey 3.

    Bloatware is minimal, phone is fast. Just, ridiculously fast. Pictures process so quickly that you can take shot after shot without stopping like you're papparazi. If the flash is off, even quicker. You can just spam the cam button and just fill your sd card without end. Oh yeah~ about that. SD card slot... apparently a rare thing nowadays. Standard with this phone. Removable battery? There too~ not only pretty, thin, but practical too? There's some sick phones out there, like the HTC One X~ but when the S3 can do everything it does and offer an sd slot and battery removal... it's going to be at the top. It just has to. Not even the G-Nexus has this flexibility, and it's supposed to be a power user phone.

    The S3 is just, ... it just dominates everything. In nearly every category except, screen quality? Maybe? By a smidgen to the One X?

    Nexus also beats it for those who want a vanilla experience and the newest updates right away, but the GSIII certainly wins for overall hardware, no doubt about that.

    I've always thought buying the Nexus, as a power user just for vanilla android seemed kind of silly. I mean, it's something any phone will be able to do in its lifetime. Yet you lose out on SD card slot capacity and the like~ which, I don't know but being able to do Nandroid backups and the like and keep my data off the phone it's just, invaluable. Hell, the GSIII even made switching SD cards possible without pulling the battery like most phones.

    I do love the G-Nexus's pricing though for an off contract phone. Seems totally fair compared to what everyone else is charging.

    Probably white because of all the delays on the Pebble Blue version.
