And there you have it, the Galaxy S line and the Note officially have a legitimate following. What's more impressive to me is, with only 3 generations of phones (GS3), Samsung has leaped to lead the industry with on of the best smartphones on the planet. All the while innovating to create a new class, "The Phablet." Way to teach the industry how to be daring and innovative. So glad they don't do the BS incremental updates that some other companies do to squeeze as much out of the consumer while giving as little as possible. Bravo Sammy, Bravo indeed. Source GS3 Sales Source Note2 Sales Now when the time comes and I upgrade my GS3 to the GS5, I'll actually have a phone that truly has 2 years of real innovation and massive upgrades. Not small profit squeezing upgrades. Bottom Line: When it comes to upgrades, 2 Years of Galaxy S Phones > 2 Years of iPhones The difference between GS3 to GS1 > difference between iP5 to iP4, and to ME that's a BIG DEAL.
