avecha: My WHS guy told me last week my phone was delivered and sitting in the back of the store.


He reliable? Because my WHS guy in the one nearest the national distribution centre says they ain't arrived!


I went in there last week and he said one had arrived.
I've been dealing with him since the very first time i rang up.
Going in tomorrow so will find out for sure then.

Will Samsung release an official statement or are we all gonna play 'lets listen to hearsay'?

Did anyone actually receive an email from Voda about the S3 when they signed up for updates?

Why did i quote myself? I was meant to edit.

I Guess all the blue ones are going to the UK because Samsung is key sponsor and the S3 is the official Olympic phone.

Might get white...really want a look at a blue one.

Just pre-ordered a Blue 32GB S3 from JB in Manukau, asked if it'd be available mid-June as what most outlets are saying, the salesperson simply said likely to be in June sometime. Fingers crossed...

Yea the verge is a decent site,

Interesting quote from the verge reviewer

"Vlad Savov's reply:
The blue version looks like a no-name knockoff phone maker is trying to appear ?premium? by faking a brushed metal look with plastic. It?s really unattractive.
Why Samsung is doing it, I don?t know. The white is easily the superior option, but imagine Samsung had done a navy blue variant in a nice matte finish ? wouldn?t that have been exponentially nicer?"

The Verge actually does a decent job reviewing the device. I think Vlad is fair. He is quite scathing of the brush metal look of the blue colour, I wonder if it is as harsh as he suggests.

vinnieg: Engadget is up too:

http://www.engadget.com/2012/05/25/samsung-galaxy-s-iii-review/


I think I'm done with this site as their reviews are just getting crappier and crappier. I have to say though, that the enthusiasm of fanboy v.s. fanboy and troll v.s. troll arguments is quite good and laugh out loud funny at times. Probably worth it for that.

Never read the likes of engadget of gizmodo so I guess you justify my choice. The Verge, Anandtech, and androidcentral offer some of the best reviews imo

Does anyone know if the Vodafone win a trip to space competition applies to S3 purchases from the likes of JB or does it only apply to purchasing directly from Vodafone online/retail stores/dealers?

On their competition T&C, all it says is purchases from Vodafone or authorised Vodafone reseller.

Are you able to clarify this johnr?

Thanks
