    What’s your source for the specs on the SIII model ? There are at least 3 different versions of the LTE handset:

    1GB / Exynos (mainly North American markets)
    2GB / S4 (up to now Japan only)
    2GB / Exynos (up to now Korea only)

    I was waiting for iPhone 5 to try LTE out. Now that Samsung Galaxy S3 has LTE, I can’t decide! Which one do I get?

  6. Ceal89 says:

    The NA version of the S3 uses a dual core snapdragon S4 as the Exynos 4412 does not support LTE when the S3 first launched

    Where’s iPhone 5 in the list? Didn’t they announce LTE?

      iPhone 5 isn’t yet officially released in the Philippines so as their Apple contract will be voided if they will post iPhone 5 ahead of time than the official release date.

    Is the S3 being offered by Globe currently the quad core variant or not?

    The Globe Guarantee of superior customer service.

    These guys. Such comedians! Or is it an early April Fools post?

  13. Aris says:

    I hope globe upgrades my nanosim to lte soon.

  14. Hugo says:

    Sadly Galaxy Note 2 is not included. The mid
    October release of the Galaxy note 2 is only 4G and no LTE. It is already posted at the Samsung local website. Launching said to be Oct 16 and release date is on Oct. 20.

    I think Globe will not include Iphone for the LTE phone lineup as the mere use of 4G LTE by Apple can get them sued by Samsung, and apparently the latter is just waiting for the former to do it.haha..

    Last time sabi ng Globe they are the most preferred broadband in the Philippines, eh bakit mas maraming subscriber ng broadband si Smart?

    tapos ngayon ito naman:

    Globe Guarantee of superior customer service.

    effective na ang cyber crime law kaya nasabi ng ts na “Globe Guarantee of superior customer service.” hehehe

  21. Regarding Globe’s seemingly bad service, there was supposed to be this article that came out recently where information coming from the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) showed that the difference between Globe and Smart’s reliability of service is not that far.

    If that was true, then what is probably happening is that Smart is just playing the perception game by the one coming out with ads magnifying the competitor’s problems.

    Personally, though, yeah it’s quite a chore sometimes to connect with Globe in the Metro manila area. Outside, though, it hasn’t been much of a problem.
