Well, people might mistake your phone for an iPad, so you shouldn't take pictures with it anyway!

Depends on what your price is relative to the market. You can sell popular items within the hour if you're 10-15% below market price. I've just gathered that from my limited experience. I could be wrong.

EDIT: Yup- looks like the going price for a bad esn, cracked screen GS3 is $150-$180. Amazing the data you can get in 5 minutes these days!

I sold some Morel speakers to this guy in Slovakia or some such country.

Didn't realize I had left international enabled. I asked if he could contribute a couple extra $$$ for shipping, and he said oh yeah, no problem! I sent the speakers off and never heard from him again.

I know he wasn't obligated, but it was a dick move.

Yeah, I'd avoid any buyers from Russia, guaranteed scam.

I wonder if the S4 will be better. It may or may not be.
I actually have two. My wifes old NIKON and my Canon. Haven't used these baby in along time ever since the shutter speed on the current smart phones have massively improved. The techincal aspect aside. I just read four megapixel. Low light? I just use a flash.

The shutter speed is what it is. Slower or faster isn't better. Shutter speeds haven't changed from the 1900s until today. I think what you meant is that picture quality on camera phones has improved to the point where you can store your "real" cameras away And that has to do with the imaging sensor itself and its development for use in smartphones. smarter chips, basically.

I think he's referring to shutter lag, not speed.

oh ok. that's two entirely different things on a reflex-based mirror camera and on a cell camera.i get the point though. before, cell cams were outrageously slow to take a pic. likely limited to processor speed mostly

even my galaxy s3 lags sometimes

Compared to a Windows Phone 8 like the lumia 920, how much lag does the SG3 have? I really like the 920 because of its smooth OS, but the fact that it's so fat and that it's market is pretty small atm bothers me. I'm coming from a rooted Samsung Infuse (the retarded brother of the SG2) running a custom rom of 4.2.2 (Paranoid android) and the lag on this thing is unbearable! Some people may suggest me to get a iPhone 5 but their OS is simply too boring and plebeian. I would love a phone where I don't have to worry about it being outdated, but have one that will last me 2+ years or until I become tired of it.

Now my friend who has a nexus 4 suggested that I should just get the SG3 since the SG4 will just have some minor upgrades and the larger screen is also unappealing (coming from someone who has a 4.5" screen lol) I think 4.7" screen is the maximum I would go. Any ideas? I also hear that HTC One is coming soon, but I've been hearing some negative things about HTC phones.

I really need to get rid of my infuse. As of now, I don't even have signal on it, despite that fact that I've updated and restored it. It's really that bad lol.

Ya i mentioned earlier bad battery life has plagued almost all android phones. At least you realize that.
I don't treat my phones with malice, this doesn't happen from dropping them or getting them wet - I just have **** luck.

I think this is correct. We stopped by the Samsung kiosk at the mall yesterday and they told us that it was at 4:00 Pacific.

I bought a used HTC One X for $260 almost half a year ago. It overclocks easily to 1.7 GHz and there's plenty of ROM options on XDA. Check it out. I never thought I would run Sense, but I am on a debloated, very tweaked version of it. It's very smooth and works really well.
