Is it just me, or you think all this hype over a phone is too much?

When the iPhone was first announced, it changed the definition of phones throughout the world. Now that was a deserved hype. But the S3 is merely another Android phone, just with better hardware (that's not going to change anything really). Nothing we haven't already seen.

Cut the "ooh, ooh, got another photo" crap please.

S3 will be @4.8inch. A Greek site told that a month before and they are the guys who revealed the S3 specs last year. They are 100% accurate

4.0"-4.3" is ok to hold, does not feel awkward, but if you take 4.7" or even bigger, then it is uncomfortable.

If CrApple understand 4 to 4.3 inches is the ideal screen size, then why the hell didn't they drop those titchy 3.5 panels as most consumers have demanded for the last couple of years?! Anyway, there is so much wasted space on iphone, both around the bezel and at either end. If they could be bothered, they could add an edge to edge screen and there would be little different in size. The new Galaxy looks like it has a very thin bezel so I don't that it will be much bigger than the S2, just as the footprint of the S2 is not very much larger than an iphone. Also gonna be thinner in depth, and putting there power button on the side negates not being able to reach the to...

I think Biggest screen on possible smallest dimestions is the future of the phones.

And Galaxy S3 and Lumia 900 are on the right way.

Too much Bezel!.. geeze Samsung, everybody wants that
bezel less phone. Leave the hardware buttons for the side.

1. Home button and Back button can be located on the right hand side of the phone.
2. The Samsung logo needs to be placed in the Back of the phone.

THINK before you comment people! If this article is true then we would be getting a phone with the same overall size as the Galaxy SII but with a bigger screen. Why would you complain about that???

First off if bigger screen was all they knew how to do then you are completely dismissing all inventions and innovations that they brought that without you would not have the advances we have. Next you must be just another I sheep because I'm so sick of hearing oh it just looks like iPhone. BS! If there are similarities then that would be the iPhone looking like these devices. Apple took the design not invented it.
