Overheating you will fiind only on Ipad 3 after too much gaming, thoug I was talking about iPhone. Even if Galaxy SIII is that large it's still not Ipad's corespondent ...

GS3´s camera is sharper, HOX got bigger apperture (low light performance is better without sacrificing pic quality. HOX´s screen is 0.1 inch smaller, but it has RGB vs Pentile (GS3) so overall pixel density (and subpixel also) is higher. Contrary to what GSMArena wants you to believe, there IS a noticeable difference in image sharpness.

Super AMOLED>>>IPS LCD? There are people out there who consider accurate color reproduction is more important than having Super VIVID (false) colors. Also the black levels on the HOX are way ahead of previous generations of LCD, still no match for AMOLED, of course.

what has apple to do with this issue. yeh it is plastic and I preffer plastic. I had I phone 4 and I hate its back material. it cracked from the 1st fall. samsung GS2 can fall and fall and fall again and still have its back "PLASTIC" needless to say it is more comfortable.

Strange, Apple didn't had that issue. But hey, plastic is plastic, it's an easy quick repaint.
