PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Daniel 'Codeworkx' Hillenbrand on why he's not going to work on cm10 for the Galaxy SIII anymore: "Before the release of the Samsung Galaxy S II we were promised support and devices. We received the S2 and the whole community was praising Samsung. To me, that was nothing but a good PR stunt, because there has not been even the slightest bit of support ever since. Actually Samsung vehemently refuses to hand out any information or even a single line of code to us. Our contact at Samsung seems to be willing to support us, but gets blocked by his superiors." His advice to prospective Android buyers is clear. "All manufacturers have an equally bad update policy, so if you like a Samsung device, just buy it. If you want to use AOSP or CyanogenMod on the other hand, you should stay away from Exynos devices, because they just don't meet the requirements. Instead I recommend you to buy Nexus or Qualcomm/OMAP devices that haven't been completely botched by the manufacturer."

After battling with the uncompleted CM10 for SGS3 for too long I gave up: it was slow, ate my battery and constant problems with artifacts on camera recording and so on kept me from liking it.

I had the SGS2 before I lost it (running CM9) and it was a breeze. I could put it in 500mhz and still would eat whatever phone for breakfast in terms of speed and battery life. CM on those two phones are world apart in terms of performance, thanks to Samsung.

I greatly appreciate the work the guys at CM have done so far and it is really a shame Samsung is doing this. If I would buy another device I would not go with Samsung. Perhaps Asus.

For now, back to Touchwiz.
