Samsung Galaxy S III GPU benchmark pops up, tops charts - read the full textThe yet unannounced successor to the Galaxy S II popped up briefly in GLBenchmark's results page to confirm that the S III (or whatever it's called) is the next top dog in droidland - GPU-wise. The results have since been hidden from prying eyes, which does give them an air of legitimacy. The...

1 gb ram is not enough those days. Htc oneX show some lags. Sgs3 has touchwiz and svoice, smartstay..etc all this will ask for ram, hd resolution means more ram, android 4 means more ram (more functions vs android 2.x)
i wait to see phones with more ram, do not waste money on something that will not be good in a year or less

Unless they release a Motorola's kind of Webtop app bundled with cheap dock 4 cores are useless.
Focus more on bigger battery, just look at HTC's One X battery fiasco! :(
With that I hope Samsung releases a MAX version with bigger battery.

Also iPad needs the faster GPU to cope with the insane resolution Apple choose to use,

One can only measure the processing performance boosts of a processor over others. Speed depends upon what kind of software the device is running. Troll on the roll! TROLL ON THE ROLL!! BRING ME A RIFLE!!

I feel inclined to point of that Samsung's yet-to-be-released mighty king-of-the-hill superphone is nearly 34% slower than the already selling IPAD.
We are not impressed...

The Galaxy S was brought out the same month as the iphone 4 & suspiciously looked very similar to the 3GS

Samsung then kicked themselves that they made their latest phone look like the last generation of it's competitor & rushed back to the drawing board & came out with the S2 a mere 7 months after the original (must have pleased customers stuck on a 2 year contract)this one looking more square with silver edging round the side rather than as a bezel - much like the iphone 4.

But they also tried to steal a march on the next iphone which is why the S2 is better than the iphone 4 but loses out quite a bit to the 4S (in my opinion)

The S3 isn't being brought out to compete with the 4S. Make no mistake - Samsung are bringing this out to steal a march on the iphone 5.

If they're not then I'd be very disappointed with them as a business that they're only trying to compete with a phone that's about to be superceded.

& if indeed that is the case or if the iphone 5 looks different to the 4S then I'll make a bet with you here & now that Samsung will release the Galaxy S4 a few months later and that it'll have a passing resemblance to what the iphone 5 looks like.

Don't get me wrong - I'm a fanboy of neither company. I have an iphone and a samsung phone at the moment.
My contract is due for renewal in July & I will then review the phones available for myself. If the S3 is the best Android phone out there & the iphone 5 is released I'll be comparing the 2 together - I won't be comparing the S3 to the 4S... & I'll then buy the one that suits my needs best. but I'd certainly steer clear of the S3 if I thought that it was only competing with an older phone because that would say to me that the S4 will be just round the corner.....

iPhone and iPad are NOT multi tasking so they can't be in the same list with REAL multi tasking phones.

The actual competitor to the Iphone 4 was the Samsung Galaxy S. released in June 2010 & compared to the Iphone 4 on this very site.
the S2 is a competitor to the 4S & the S3 will be a competitor to the Iphone 5

so to insult someone over something so petty & then get it wrong yourself makes you look very foolish
