However, these stats only matter to like, 1% of the customers who are total geeks who swear by numbers.
For the remaining 99% of the general public, the only things that will matter are:
1 "Does it look good?"
2 "Can I afford it?"
If you notice the one s gets half the score of the gs3 because the gs3 has double the cores I would like to see a quad core s4 against the quad exynos I bet the s4 chip would win

Wow. I really think Samsung missed a perfect oppurtunity to blow other competiters out of the water.
Whilst the phone is obviously an excellent piece of technology, I (and several people I have spoken to) am dissappointed to say the least.
Firstly, I can't understand why manufacturers go to all this trouble to push the limits of software and hardware performance and then coat their creations in plastic. Whilst all reports indicate that the "feel" and quality is still high, how much would a ceramic cover (or other high quality feel material)added to the overall cost? A flagship phone should be coated in flagship materials, NOT plastic.
Secondly, Whilst camera software improvements are welcome, once again I am left scrathcing my head and wondering (/screaming) why! Could they have done more with the camera. My answer is a absofu, I mean, Yes. The added cost of high performance optics might have been a limiting factor but I don't think sticking with the "old" 8MP camera was the right move.
Thirdly, a 2100mah battery. 2100. 2-1-0-0. No matter how I say it it just does not sound right. I think this is another area where they could have made significant ground over competiers. I know it's larger than the SII - So what. One of my main problems with my current phone is the limited battery life and it will be a MAJOR factor in my next phone purchase. I amagine as phone specs continue to evolve and lets be honest exceed user needs that battery life will be a huge consideration for many. The tecnology is there, its just that most manufacturers are refusing to take notice. WE WANT MORE BATTERY LIFE.
Fourth - The screen. While the gorilla glass is a nice addition, first impressions about the screen are that in some ways its a downgrade from the sII. Not what I wanted to hear or rather see.
Maybe minor points but I just cant help but feel samsung has lost a major oppurtunity. I am but one of very many dissappointed consumers who had been eagly awaiting the sIII's arrival. Don't get me wrong, I dont see ANY phone that can stand with it at present but I wanted a KILLER god damn it!
Anonymous, 04 May 2012GLbench results posted. It's ridiculous http://www.anandtech.com/show/5810/samsung-galaxy-s-i... moreEven on those benchmarks the OneS almost always beats the OneX. Anyone know why it's like that? The OneX is supposed to be HTC's premier device after all.
ONCE AGAIN.... Samsung also copy htc feature like phone finder from internet and now its copy htc one x camera feature......
Has anyone else noticed that the Dual-core OneS consistently beats the Quad-core OneX? What's superior on paper isn't always better in the real world.

Escpecially considering I've been refraining from buying a SGS2 all this time, FOR NOTHING.
yes it win with one x because its android AOSP and you know htc ui is different with other android smartphone htc has a lot of animation that cause decrease benchmarks for example my desire hd if i use stock htc rom the benchmarks result about 1960 but when i use stock aosp and miui rom its benchmarks result increase significant to 3430 so i thinks not impressive with galaxy s III benchmarks because its aosp....
I think the HTC One X is a good competitor for the Samsung Galaxy S3 but we have to take into account Samsung has taken advantage of delaying your ship so you can put better hardware, just as I'm buying a HTC and only fails to use the mark when it launches Android team
