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

Siri is pretty good though.

With the growth of all thing Google, I have asked many times does anyone know how secure is Android, but no one ever responds. Is it because everyone is happy to to entertain spyware and certain Google data collection software, all just because the facade of Android is an attractive impulse buy, or is it because you just dont know. As a prolific business traveler all around the world, and having several mobiles just for myself let alone for my business, I know that given the opportunity some one will have a go at our business. So lets stop the crap. How secure is Android, and of course well done Samsung.

Is S3 already out in the market? the Review is fast. unlike other handsets,. especially nokia takes a couple of months to have the review. Look at 808 Pureview, not even the preview has been conducted.

What technology have they copied (a lot of it is theirs anyway)? How is upgrading their phones lacking in originality as everyone does it every year anyway?
This is as good a review as you'll find anywhere in my opinion,if there are any questions it doesn't answer then they probably aren't worth asking.

Great phone but the design is letdown and deal breaker.

I'll go for LG 4X HD same features,better screen and looks stunning after all

One X has better screen and it looks so much better. only advantage for s3 is sd card and removable battery. one x make first picture in 0.7 dec, s3 in 1.5sec, and i also love smart led flash in x which makes really good photos in bad conditions. And sense also looks much better than touchwize, HTC all the way for me.

' There's also a 2 megapixel front-facing camera for video-calls'
Thisvshould be corrected it's 1.9 megapixel. Dunno why Samsung took away 0.1 but they did.
