My local, fairly clueless btw, is getting a mailing this Friday or Monday re new models, including order form for how many of each...
10 days/2 weeks he'll have new stuff.
So that's at the earliest, n I doubt anything major not only would be available so quickly after being announced....but also released with such a whimper n on non holiday/significant retail sales period.

He's right. I haven't gotten anything either on the GS3. We're still promoting the lightray 4G. The motion 4G will indeed be the next LTE device soon. We're still expecting the GS3 after September.

MetroPCS service for me isn't good enough for me to support 500MB a day. Well unless of course I'm on WIFI at which point I'd be on my laptop.

It isn't just data though, it is how many minutes my wife and I use, how many texts we send as well.

I meant overall usage, including home internet. I don't usually download much, unless i want to try out a rom.

Default Release Date For GS3?

anybody know a release date or something? i'am anxiously waiting & saving up for it, i like my esteem but it just seems dated, not to mention screenshots lose quality & look washed out when i upload them to instagram & i take alot of pictures & i heard the gs3 camera is similar to or if not better than the iphone 4s. i'am also curious as to if its gonna offer just one color or more.

Not at the moment we don't have an exact release date the time frame is Sept - Dec colors choices could be white and blue and good idea that you are saving for it

I have heard rumors of it having the quad core exynos but I'm still expecting the same 1.5ghz s4.

There's no way we're getting the quad core since it doesn't support lte.

geeze ya way off on specs the quad core version isnt for the us at all although u could buy one from amazon or ebay but dont think about using it on metro. gsm and metro's hybrid cdma/lte technology isnt compatible. anyways it will be only a dual core 1.5 but with more ram than the international version. they have 1ghz of ram and we have 2ghz of ram.

The Korean version of the s3 will be quad core and volte compatible.

So it is possible but I don't think we'll get that.

even if its not voLTE out of the box they'll more than likely make it voLTE capable through a firmware update.

Lol only reason I don't trip about my motion is that I have an s3 to play with whenever. So I have the best two phones on metro(even though the s3 is on sprint).

Seeing as though they both have the same chip set clocked to 1.5 I'm not exactly sure why you think that.

I guess the giant screen adds speed in a benchmark?

It's a matter of scale. Benchmarks are horrible at it.

There isn't really a whole lot of reasons for the Motion and S3 to score differently. Same processor. RAM isn't really a issue unless you tax the system. Same with the GPU. So you run into the matter of scale. The Motion has a little less power in the real world but less to run. The S3 has a bit more power but more to run. In the end they scale to being about equal on the benchmarks.


Benchmarks aren't really designed to compare things this way. They are designed to compare similar products. A Motion shouldn't compare benchmarks with a S3. It should compare benchmarks with other 3.5" phones. Just as the S3 shouldn't compare benchmarks with a Motion. It should compare benchmarks with other 4.5"+ phones.

nope you didnt understand my point, i was referring to the software quadrant. Which is a POS for benchmark. I had a samsung admire which i compared with my friends dual core phone. Keep in mind that the admire could not even run low end app or any games without either lagging. But when we benchmark the admire got 2000 more point then the dual core phone so a major WTF! there. Quadrant reads thr sys info and displays a bulls-it score. So thats why I was suggesting antutu instead. Which actually works for real. I really wish we could of done a benchmark using another software anything but quadrant and I am sure my point wouldnt be wrong. And sorry for grammar and such in work typing in cellphone
