My comparison in this aspect is with the Sony Xperia S. I agree with you on the Pixel bandwagon too. But, I own a SGS2, I can visually tell a difference with every other phone including the Galaxy nexus. I run ICS and I know exactly how clear the images actually look. When you are viewing a display on a device like a smartphone with such close proximity the pixel density matters! Super AMPLOD plus soes not take up battery life anymore than the other displays and has already been pioneered by Samsung. Why on earth would they not stick to offering it atleast on their flagship?

8Mp camera is perfect. Thank you Samsung for not contributing to the absurd pixel race. More pixels means smaller pixel size.
Please do not ask for 12 as it would be a sad move.

to those who say the one x is better: please explain to me how, is it the lack of microSD, the smaller non-removable battery, is it the smaller front camera or is it the slightly higher thickness maybe its the lack of features in general.

this phone is overrated. I can just feel it that it won't live up to the expectations set by its predecessor.

samsung you failed big time coz consumers or users dont rely on specs but majority is because of the design... Sg2 has far much better design than this sg3... but I still prefer the design of iphone.... and samsung you should replace your designing team... fail bigtime...

Pixel numbers in mobile phones is now nothing more than a marketing game,so I'd like to give Samsung some sort of virtual prize for being clever enough NOT to jump on the pixel bandwagon that'll soon be rolling along so fast it'll go out of control and crash.
First and foremost this is a mobile communication device and secondly it's an optical imaging device,why not actually wait until you've seen some photos taken with it using the phone's NEW imaging sensor (not the same as the S2's sensor)rather than pre-judging it based on nothing more than a number?

Cheap plastic build, ugly old design and Camera shutter key are the major flaws. Otherwise the features and benchmarks are amazing. But cheap look and feel are a deal breaker.
