    Definitely looking to be the phone my guy was talking about last month.

    Still trying to get more out of him but he is being stingy with info right now...

    A removable 4000mAh battery would be awesome.

    Non-removable battery and non-expandable memory is a terrible concept, it's like they want you to suffer or something, as part of some oppressive new world order :mad:

    I love these posts. You do realize these "rumors" and "leaks" are all part of a viral marketing campaign, right? This is called free advertising. Leaking specs, starting rumors, getting us all in a frenzy over their next product so that we practically can't wait for the store to open on release day. My advice is to stop waiting anxiously for an announcement; it only leads to disappointment. I guarantee there will be a minimum of five phony release date rumors before you get a chance to buy.

    The main reason a lot of these sites come out with this stuff is purely for hits. Think about it.. If the rumor looks legit enough every tech blog and forum on the planet will be reposting the story which converts to hits and advertising revenue for the guy who owns the site.

    As for getting excited about new phones well .. I'm a geek I can't help it .. but your right .. patience is a virtue in these matters.

    I'll bet there is some department within each of these phone companies responsible for leaking "rumors" of all kinds. There is no doubt about it, actually.

    Agreed - I cannot see anything positive about this concept. Literally nothing. I like the fact if my battery begins to die I can swap it out for a new one. And I like that I can choose how much memory I can have in my phone and not be restricted into paying a substantial sum more to buy the phone with more memory "Just in case".

    i've said it a hundred times....whats the point of having an awesome phone if you run out of battery life. i like to be able to open my phone and swap the battery when i'm not around an outlet all day.

    also, like the galaxy nexus, you can buy an extended battery as an option. a non removable battery phone is stuck with its battery. just ask any original razr owner how they feel about their battery.

    i've noticed a trend by manufacturers (sony, motorola & htc) of making flagship phones with non removable batteries to make there phones as thin as possible. this trend is idiotic imo. i dont want a phone thats as thin as a credit card, i want a phone that is useful to me.

    unfortunately the phone makers see apple selling all those phones, so they also want to make sleek thin phones with non removable batteries. :mad:

    the thing is, the iphone has a 3.5 screen so of course the battery life is good. on a 4.6 inch hd screen, you better have a 3000+ mAh battery in there or at least give me the option to swap out batteries if needed.

    You give the iphone way too much credit. Battery life is onpar with most current android phones.

    Medias all seem to be busy reviewing HTC One X/S now as they got new HTC toys to play with. It seems like very decent phones with good overall performance, but I'm still not fan of Sense UI and fixed 1800mAh battery is big minus for me. Anyway it's HTC time now, but hoping to see GSIII blowing it away soon.

    Same here. I wonder what would be the better marketing move... Announcing the gs3 to steal the show from htc or wait till the hype had somewhat faded so the gs3 has the complete spotlight? I would think sooner is better when contracts are involved.

    Nexus is a backup of my droid tanks before the S3 comes out. I liked a little more than the razr max

    That's how I feel. I read an article saying Samsung will not release the s3 until all carries offer the latest OS for the S2.

    I find that hard to believe. You have a link to that article.
