Really ... 4.8inches and you expect it to sell like S2 ?
I don't think so

this phone deserves a bulky protective cover, and a day one root for custom firmware. i hope people notice you carrying a galaxy s3

I wonder how resistant to scratches the back cover is. Do you guys think the Hyperglaze also serves as an extra coating for scratch-proofing? I don't mind about the looks, but the back just looks so glossy and shiny, I worry about it being easily scratched just like my ipod touch 4th G. (Not a big fan of hard cases/protector)

MicroSim a disadvantage? How on earth did you come up with that?

And the plastic is actually practical. Drop it from head hight and it might survive unlike others

SGS3 design is just plain ugly, and the device it self is bloated with lots of useless apps. as always like all android devices, at very least, you need to root it , so it can function properly. or better yet install clean custom ROM.

S3/Nexus are equal as they can both use each others app.

Siri is pretty good though.
