I love Note and its really pocketable due to its thinness. Al-least in my jeans pocket it fits easily although when you sit you can feel something big in your pocket just for seconds only.

For me Note is a perfect fit as my mobile/tablet and computer/laptop for other stuff and giving me good portability.

Next just because there is more than those does not knock off their importance. 3rd you are out of your mind rediculous if you think they fail at any of them. Camera? Along with Nokia Samsung has been #1 countless times in photo and video. Fact. Build quality? Pretty damn good. Even in a lot of cheap phones. Signal mostly awesome, but not always the best. Music quality and speaker are pretty awesome. You need to quit trolling.

Hardware acceleration builtin as a GB device

I am planning to buy Samsung laptop and use it as a portable phone. I think I have enough wide pockets in my jeans even for this. This would be even better than Galaxy Tab.

For example look at HD games from Gameloft; they have versions of games available according to devices (I am talking about high-end) and not all of them are avaiable for every high-end device. Like if a game is optimized for Tegra-3 then most-likely its not available for Exynos even with a less graphics details.

What do you say about this now ? Isn't this due to fragmentation ?

CMIIW. Thanks.

Anything less than the Exynos 5250 and we're dealing with a Galaxy S that's:
A) not worthy of the Galaxy S moniker
B) on the fast track to obsolescence...

htc ONE x's sence and unibody polycarbonate beats Samsung easily, hardware isn't everything, Samsung's cheap plastic feel (although it is durable and does not break) and the mediocre touchwiz makes the Galaxys much less apealing.

Galaxy S III is actually I9500.
I9300 is a lower class phone.

I hav been seeing a lot of trolling from nokia n apple n htc fans for the past few weeks, just bcuz of a few dissapointing 'leaks' abt sgs3 from 'unknown' sources with no proof whatsoever. They hav been going on ranting abt how a flop show sgs3 is gonna b. But i was waiting for some concrete information to surface n always believed that sgs3 wud blow the competetion away just like its predecessors. With just one concrete information surfacing, it just seems that i might b right. But m nt gonna lash out at those trollers just yet. M gonna wait for sgs3 to b released officially n then m gonna rub it raw in their faces. Hell yeah m gonna enjoy doing that....again!! :)
