Maybe you should move where there is a good signal, or change carriers. I don't think it's the phone.

re: Are Consumers Dumping Samsung Smartphones?
My Galaxy S II has turned out to be a lemon as far as use as a phone. I am sitting here in my home/office in a supposed to be strong signal area with one weak or no signal strength bar.
All the rest of the stuff it does is "gilding the lily" but his is no lily.
I've gone back to my Razor which is an excellent "phone."

When the verdict was announced Apple said they were going to seek an injunction barring sales of additional Samsung models including the SIII and Note. That's why the SIII is in short supply. People are selling their SII to get an order in for the SIII before they disappear from the market!

What kind of a contorted conclusion is this? What's next? Microsoft shares fall 1 cent, because a bag of rice tipped over in China?

re: Are Consumers Dumping Samsung Smartphones?
Oh, this is good for a laugh... people are taking perfectly good devices and getting rid of them because of a ruling that may lead to the manufacturer paying a fine and having to re-engineer their devices. Really?

That's like having a cherry 73 Ford Pinto in mint condition and getting rid of it because there was some sort of legal action against Ford and they lost.

Or, a better comparison, changing your favorite baseball team because the old team had a down year and this other team had a good year.

Use what works, plain and simple - did your device suddenly die because of the ruling? No, didn't think so. And yes, that's said by someone who still uses SGI workstations built in the early and mid 90s in a production environment from time to time.

re: Are Consumers Dumping Samsung Smartphones?
I don't know how much either device retails for with or without a plan but, has anyone looked at the value loss of these two devices (iPhone 4S and Samsung Galaxy SII) based on the percentage of MSRP lost when sold used?

Interesting article! Thanks for sharing it with us!

Haha. Love stuff like this. It's so fabricated and not true. All local stores are sold out of Samsung Galaxy S3's - And BTW...we love ours and wouldn't get rid of it regardless of the judgement.

re: Are Consumers Dumping Samsung Smartphones?
Unfortunately, Samsung hasn't shared any data about sales of the Galaxy S III. Neither have any of Samsung's carrier partners in the U.S. (AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon). It's definitely one of the best phones available at the moment. There's very little I'd change about it. That said, I am sure the GS3 is a strong sellar and will remain so for some time. I'd love to report that GS3 sales are "skyrocketing" but there's no hard data to back that up right now.
