    I would have rather bought the S3, the size is more up my alley, but since I use my phone all day for work and streaming podcasts and such, even my Maxx is down to 30% or so at night. I don't think the battery would have made it through the day.

    I want a quad core s3, are there any being offered from carriers, or just the unlocked ones?

    Sucks having the US version of the S3 :laugh:
    The only way is to get an unlocked international version.

    I think the US is a dual core and the international is quad core.
    Mussels says thanks.

    Maybe I'll try fixing the wi-fi problem of my phone (only with our home router too :laugh:). The many months that have passed would probably be enough time for a fix to surface. LOL

    The US version runs a slower dual core as the exynos in the international version is not compatible with 4G. The US version also has 2GB of ram, but it doesn't help it very much.

    I still dont understand the deal with 4g and quad core. Why is that incompatible?

    because these are SoC designs. you cant just mix and match parts, its all or nothing. the quad was designed for LTE i'm guessing.

    Ah I see. Cuz the quad core s3 is 3g only, but other phones like optimus g have quad core and 4g; but it is a different processor and everything, like you were saying

    Mine will go on average about 55 hours before its all the way dead.

    Not bad for what it is.. this is with average use, not heavy by any means.

    Hey, I wanted to recommend a great word processor app kingsoft office. It is free and great. If you use your droid to type on you will love this app. http://www.kingsoftstore.com/download-office/android-office-apps. They also have a version for Windows 7 and it is 100 percent word compatible. My kids use it for school on their Iconia Tabs and they like it a lot.
    Mussels says thanks.

    Downloaded the Kingsoft app last week. Haven't used if that often yet, but it seems pretty nice.

    He specifically said it was being used on a tablet, although I have no problems doing minor edits in word docs and viewing PP presentations on my Note's 5.3" screen :D

    It would probably be most useful on a phone if you had to do a last-minute edit on a doc when you didn't have access to a PC, at least for those who work on their phones.

    I have a galaxy s2 and If I forget to do some homework I can easily whip out a 500-600 word document on polaris office on a 20-30min bus ride to school :laugh:
