I have the s3 from canada its great not what you expect in the pictures hands on is an all new experience!!!
Being a Galaxy S user... Used SGS1 and then got the SGS2, the only thing which I didnt like in SGS3 design is the back layout of camera,flash light and the speaker (all in a straight line... why ?) The SGS2 design is much better (both front and backside).

Before come to the market SGS3 samsung can change back cover and camera pixels increase to 4000x3000. all complaint will be solve of peoples. :-)

Personnaly, i feel lucky to have been able to own / test several Android phones in the past 3 years, and i made my mind last year, among stock launchers, i really prefer Samsung TouchWiz to other brands, it's light, simple and efficient.
I wonder how many people know that :
-In contact list / call logs, just slide on a name to the right to make a call, to the left to send a msg (instead of validating 2/3 times like others)
-On home screen, pinch unzoom to choose directly the page you want.
-In apps screen, pinch unzoom to do same.
-Basic notification bar is the most complete with direct access to settings like wifi/BT/GPS and since GS1, so no need to waste home screen spaces with their widgets.
And several other little things which make your phone usage easier on a daily basis.
Androindian, 06 May 2012just compare "YOUR" xperia s with sgs3 in gsmarena and please let me know how is it ... moreYou can definitely compare xperia s to s2 but not s3! Im no sammy lover but stop ranting about inferior handsets! Yes xperia s looks nice but it hasnt the performance! The only handset that is actually out that is comparable is htc one x! I think samsung could have done more with s3 but remember samsung have apple to compete with so they needed to get this phone out before next iphone so they might just pinch some iphone 4s customers! Waiting for iphone 5 now as they are true innovators. Let the Samsung v apple war continue as it will all be good for tech lovers! :-)
Scary specs but the design is quite not so right. It's more like a lady's phone with its rounded sides and edges.
if you hate touchwiz that much just root your phone and install a custom rom of your choice and your touchwiz nightmare will be over ...personally I don't Think tw is that bad

It could have 50 mp cam a Tera of memory and 7 core processor and I still wouldn't buy it becouse touch wiz is the worst UI ever
most of you guys who are ranting about it'd poor design please check out its on hand review on YouTube or something before you begin ridiculing it..the design is very nice ..superb I must say..unlike any other phone on the market

Disappointing. Brushed metal effect gives it a 'wannabe' feel making it feel cheaper, so sad for a flagship device.
Harshith Dayanand, 05 May 2012My honest personal opinion is, I hate Samsung brand all together. I have owned some of their p... moreYeah well to each their own right. You can keep your thoughts, go kiss and make love to your phone in your OWN forum because we like samsung. And not because we (at least I) are fanboys. Whoever made the best product is the winner. As simple as that. And again, samsung is the winner with the S3. They listen to their customer about having a replaceble battery and extendable microSD memory unlike the One Series from HTC. The design could have been better, but there is little to be accomplish when the screen estate is 95% of the surface. I own S2 , Sensation XE and iphone 4, i personally like S2 better.
