Zero confirmation as well. They said mid June and to be precise 17th.


Not sure if Samsung saying about the 32G Blue being delayed 2-4 weeks from launch or from today.
Hmm..

cokeman2: no one here is keen for covers or cases for the sgs 3 ??. i ve seen sum drop test on xda and on you tube .this sgs 3 very easily breakable, especially the screen. i ve droped my sgs 2 a few times no damage ...might get sum good cases for it.


I am. First thing I did was put a case and screen protector on. 

Clove have just got a bunch of cases and accessories in: http://blog.clove.co.uk/2012/06/07/samsung-galaxy-s3-accessoriesnow-in-stock/


personally i feel though accessories for iPhone are plenty and good quality. i've not found a similar quality for other brands yet. I got one for I9000 and i dont like it but protecting phone though.

We spend lot of money on phones and hide them in horrible cases!

We don't cover our Tv, Car, shoes etc, why should we have to cover our phones


I don't like protectors but your argument is flawed regardless. You don't carry around your tv, your shoes aren't worth $1200 (and if they were you wouldn't take them off road) and your car is covered in protective surfaces like bumpers: ) 



What about your expensive watch or engagement ring etc, do you cover those? would be funny to see someone with a breitling watch with a pink cover around it.

must say rings and watches are attached to your body ? .....  mobiles are  probably the most dropped things, as we use them most of the time, mis placing when putting in the pocket  etc etc ....

But it won't be 32GB models. Also Samsung is going to upgrade the RAM on the S3 to 2GB for Korean model.
I hope they are mistakenly added 2GB into my blue 32GB when they are shipping it lol. Ones can only dream of.

I know the debate continues over the value/importance of screen protectors.  Each to their own. The only right answer is the one that sits well with you as an individual.

Anyway, on XDA there's a thread about this protector.  There's a code to get 75% discount at checkout. So I guess for those who are undecided it might be a cheap way of working out if it's right for you or not.

The code is "big75" - without the quotes.

Cheers man. That is a really good price. I bought 4 full body protection already.
In case I need to replace it when it peel off. Or sell some back :)

I wandered into the local Telecom shop to nosey the S3, to find it was "guarded" by a lovely attractive blonde young woman, wearing a delightful black S3 emblazened top :-)

She had obviously memorized the spiel on the S3, rattling off the specs like an enthusiastic door to door seller with a bag of things from a $2 shop.

Just when I thought I could run the S3 through it's paces, I had to do it with her eagle eyes watching haha! I wonder if she does that for the entirety of her 8 hour shift? That would be annoying for customers I'd think.

If someone has bought a blue S3 and decides they absolutely hate it. sell to me me me! :-)

Great reading the feedback so far.

Thaaaanks. Ordered like 10 to last me through the years to come :D


I actually went into 2D last Sunday to get the S3, but apparently they had sold out just the day prior. I was told that they might come in this week (but unfortunately not), and guaranteed by next week. 

After the few comments from people with Blue ones, I'm wondering if I should wait until a Blue comes in (which will probably be later then the white). I tested the White instore, and it was pretty good..Haven't been able to find a store with Blue yet though.

cokeman2:
sultanoswing: 2 degrees store on Victoria street in Hamilton has at least 2 pebble blues in stock - they showed me them when I popped in to buy a blank micro-SIM card in preparation. None on the in-store displays yet, of course.

Too bad my order is still pending at NL (must be one of the seven they have waiting to be filled!).


i really cant believe  it that WHS were so fast getting pepple blue  here ...i thought they be the last to get them ....good on them  


hahah I think it is amazing that they mentioned in this forum alone.

Thanks for the heads up. Just ordered myself 2 protectors and 1 full body. Still undecided on if I will use them.
