    Hi all,
    Looking at potentially getting this phone. Aside from the awkward physical start button, the other thing that concerns me is voice quality.

    I have read one review already where it stated call quality was a weak point:
    http://www.phonearena.com/reviews/Sa..._id3171/page/4

    ...and the android GS3 which this is based on has a TON of call-quality complaints if you read the forums.

    Anyone know if they have improved or fixed the call quality for the launch of this phone? Not sure if its a firmware or hardware problem.

    Go for Nokia if you want great call quality.

    Regardless of Nokia's history, has Samsung had historically spotty call quality or is the GS3 an exception?

    Call quality is great on my wife's Focus S. Much, much better than my Titan I.

    There's no way for me to know as this phone isn't out on most carriers yet, but all the WPs I have ever had have great call quality. I doubt Samsung is an exception.
