    It should get endless development attention. Who cares if everyone has one? I think if everyone has one it'll send a message to other OEMs to step up.

    I can't image the GS3 will become too common. Take the iphone for an example. The more units the more development. Besides, someone will come up with the next big Android handset in less than 6 months.

    Too common? I thought that was the idea.
    More common = more dev support = more apps = better app market and customisation = I win but iPhone iLose.

    Only if you view your phone as some sort of fashion statement that is inexplicably tied to your feelings of self-worth/status.

    more common is better.

    look at the NFC software for it, only works with other SG3's for now, so the more people who can use what the phone is capable of makes it better for everyone getting new phones 6 months from now.

    Common is always better. For me, it's all about troubleshooting. If you come across a problem, and you go to a forum where hundreds (or more) of users have the same device, you're likely to find someone who fixed that problem, or at least get help to solve it quicker.

    If I understood the OP's question, I think they're asking if SG3 will loose in popularity unlike the iPhone which has never become "common."

    Once again, you all need to realize or at the very least, attempt to realize that not everyone with a smartphone is a member of this forum nor will they have any interest in specs like you all do here. They don't know squat about roms or development.

    They just want the hottest new phone and for MANY the SG3 is the new hotness.

    Yeah it's gonna be different from the past. Their number of sales was pretty high, but they didn't have any brand like an iPhone since they release new devices in a short cycle. But, I guess this can be different from the past.

    In a way I can understand why you say this.

    Not to long ago HTC said they were not worried about bigger batteries in their phone because people want thin and sexy. How many times have we read a phone review that says it's sexy, or to angular or has to much bezel.

    So yea to some the looks are very important.

    Absolutely design matter. But just because someone enjoys personally pleasing aesthetics and form factor in their phone doesn't mean they see it as a status symbol. That's not to say I don't understand where you're coming from...my 13 yr old niece and her friends definitely see their iphones as status symbols.

    There's no need to be all hipster about it. If the phone's popular, that's good. I've seen too many people buy phones because no one else had them, and then get disappointed to find out there was a reason for that!

    This is how I feel really. Although I have to admit I do tend to have a feeling of "pfft" everytime the entire meeting room full of people pulls out their iphones to check their schedules.

    The more common the more accessories made for the phone, we all benefit from it. Truthfully I can careless about it being to common. I don't want exclusivity. I want a really good phone that works as it was intended to from the company that made it...

    I hope it is too common. Nobody develops for phones that don't have a large user base.
