what does it matter that he didnt get a brand new phone if they fixed it anyways? if they fixed it, it works just the same?
How do I get the quad core s3 cause I need a new galixy
There are 2 versions of the Samsung Galaxy S III, the US version has Duel Core and the <a href="http://geekaphone.com/phones/Samsung-Galaxy-S-III-Quad-Core ">International Version has Quad Cores</a>. Here is the comparison you are looking for: <a href="http://geekaphone.com/compare/Samsung-Galaxy-S-III-Quad-Core-vs-Apple-iPhone-4S">Samsung Galaxy S III Quad Core vs iPhone 4S</a>.
Wich has a better screen resolution because samsung is normaly the best but does the PPI (pixel density) matter alot
sgs III have a 4 cores!
Meh. Overkill .... both of them
galaxy always defeats i-phone.. haha
 galaxy   is     king of all phones
You don't know apple fan boy.... maybe apple give you a new because they know they are falling behind :P 
Iphone still the best... Acctually, im using an Iphone 4s.. It broke once, but Apple gave me the new one... What im try to tell, if samsung phone like S3 are broken, samsung will replace with the new one???? I dont think so, because one of my friend broken his samsung galaxy note, and samsung just repair it not give a new one... Hahaha... In other way, Iphone is the best in the world... Who need a large phone... While we can get anything from the small one...
I think geek a Phone has a tendency against iPhone. When I see galaxy S III, it is huge, I do not know in which pocket I can put it. Large screen means larger surface, that way the Galaxy SIII is thinner. S III is lightweight because, it lacks the high quality glass which shows iPhone better but weighs more. Who needs a Megapixel front camera? Is quad core needed? No iPhone user needs flash since thousands of apps cover this hole. So all in all, iPhone has a much better user experience
Thanks, we will fix that up soon.
IPHONE SUXXX GO GALAXY S3
Wrong info: Galaxy sIII has HD Super AMOLED.Not super Amoled plus
