*really low free memory may make the os slow in general but this shouldn't happen on android.
We don't need more ram. It wont make the device faster. If anyone needs help understanding what ram is, there's a great link in my signature
But the Korean SHV-E210K/L/S[ version has Quad-Core AND LTE (see: [OFFICIAL] Korean Galaxy S III (SHW-M440S/SHV-E210S/K/L) Thread - xda-developers
and Samsung Galaxy S III - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
How do you explain that they have it and the rest of the world dosent?
In my country, Portugal, the coverage is very good: HSPA+ 42Mbit/s and LTE 100Mbits (I live is the 3rd biggest city and LTE Speed Tests gives me results between 60 and 80Mbit/s which is way better than any USA result I´ve seen.
I ordered the international version , the one avaylable here, do you believe I will be missing much having only the 21Mbit/s HSPA+ (I should get 10/12Mbit/s in real speed test) version regarding internet surfing speed, etc or the 60Mbits are only noticeable when downloading big files?
