Seriously, does anyone need a new Galaxy S? I don't want to believe that any smartphone user needs something more powerful than the current Galaxy S II.

You want to drop another 600 bucks on a new smartphone? That's fine then, but you probably don't need it.

Lots of people skip generations, or are simply on the lookout to finally get a smartphone. Samsung kinda has to play this game.

Actually, a higher rate of new devices also means the retail price drops. Providers like to tell you the device is 600 bucks but you're getting it for free with their subsidies, when really it's already a lot cheaper online. I got my Galaxy S II two months ago for less than half the initial cost, 10 months after it was released. Apple products on the other hand... They're always expensive.

Yeah, innovation is stupid.

Under my opinion, what is stupid is people who buys a new smartphone each year because the older one seems no longer useful with the more megapixels and megahertzs of the new one.

While GS2 is great phone many US versions lack next gen features like NFC. Also display for all versions of GS2 is HDPI . With Galaxy Nexus and HTC One x XHDPI (Extra high Density) displays are gaining traction.Therefore GS3 is coming a right moment. Get all the great features of phones launched in last 1 year (which is a big duration in android world) plus set new benchmarks for future phones.

What's this need for such a constant turnover of new phones? They only get marginally better or more useful with each generation, no matter the manufacturer.

I'm impressed with the amount of hype Samsung is creating with this device, even if it is mostly inside of the tech crowd. Great job, Samsung.

In the European tech press there's also a fair amount of rumble and hype about the next version. The Galaxy S II sold a fair number of devices (at the expense of HTC which didn't have a matching killer device), so we'll have to see.

I'm continually impressed by the reliability and quality of Samsung products. I apologize if that sounds like shameless astroturfing, but it ain't, and I am.

I have the Galaxy S 2. That is already a great device. I am looking forward to the Galaxy S 3.

When did the S2 come out?

Varies, I know most of Asia and Europe got it before USA. But the official release was in April 2011.

Samsung GS3 specs are contantly getting "leaked". http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=3...

And it will be much better and cheaper than the iPhone

Take that fanboys
