Lol, how small are the bricks where you're from? My Nexus 7 fits in my pocket, I imagine a Note 2 would no problem

Anecdotal evidence is obviously cold hard fact eh? Well if that is the case... I have one, my GF has one and 4 folks in my IT department have one. I was just in my hospital cafe and saw plenty of Nurses with their GS3s.

Anyways... If Samsung wasn't selling so many phones then why are shipments up and why are their profits up and in line with the release of the Galaxy S3?

The Note2 and GS3 are selling extremely well in unlocked countries. The size is just massive and i have seen few users with a flip case making the note2 and phone calls look like a joke

Because many people are getting tired of Apple's narrow minded approach. By holding onto a small screen with the death grip, (yeah it's a narrow 4.0") Apple is limiting itself.

I have sent emails to Apple also saying the same thing.
What is the point of a forum if there is NO discussion? What does the word Forum mean to you?
And at what point do we stop beating a dead horse?!

Discussion is great, if it has a purpose. If not, it is useless blather.

Since May I haven't seen any lines or hype at all in person about the S3, just casual mentions. I have been in a lot of areas so maybe the demand isn't what everyone is making it out to be. It's hard to generate demand for a company when they push out like 10 phones a year
