MOTOROLA RAZR MAXX is better than this, xperia s, iphone etc because its way more practical with its huge battery, slimline body, WATERPROOF tech and more than enough dual cores. and then its top looks.
Gsmarena is currently the only site I know of who got the Samsung Galaxy S3 in their hands! Wow! please do some tests and upload lots of videos, and hurry up!!
I'm not buying it.
I don't need a PC in my pocket - I have one at home.
I need a phone and a camera - Nokia 808 is the right choice for me.
besides, it looks sooo outdated, just like galaxy S1.

b) Will they be Japan-only or not
gazmatic, 09 May 2012your comments alone make me want to buy this phone... "plastic absorb more shock than met... more"Better" is subjective - depends on what your after.
If you want better design, smoother and simple UI, consistent user experience, siri and generally better finished apps, then 4S. Accept that what you see is what you get - very few customisations possible.
If you want faster phone, better web browsing, customisable, more features/options, better camera, not stuck to iTunes, file sharing, live streaming and resizable widgets, and longer battery life then SGS3. Just be satisified with uninspiring design, fewer updates, and less consistent user experience.
So if you're more tech savvy and like to tinker, discover and be able to make your device look & work how it suits you, then android & S3. If you want a cool looking device that does what it's designed to do (and does it well) and little else, and want simple/no fuss, then 4S.
If I were you I'd get the SGS3 over 4S as there is almost nothing it can't do the same or better, and faster. Or you can wait 6 months to see the iPhone5.
[deleted post]Maybe it's true. But SE already announced awesome products before - surely they were awesome when they were announced (pretty much every high-end Xperias).
It took them AGES to be actually released to shops though... By this time they were not so awesome anymore.
Maybe it will be better now that Sony managing it. I could hope for the best, but I won't wait for it.

What do you say, wait for this phone from Sony?

That's why I will be waiting for One XL (which is basically AT&T One X released internationally). I don't need quad core, and Krait also has cleaner audio output too (I use IEMs so SNR quite a touchy issue for me).
cnick, 09 May 2012Plastic makes every phone more or less cheap by design and build techique used. NO, I don't... moreHonestly keep your uninformed opinions to yourself. Using poor arguments based on your sole experience is worthless, look up argument fallacies!! Its a great phone and I'm sure Samsung did their research and saw that it would be wiser to build the phone with more shock absorbant plastic which would save their customers hassle of having to replace part at a premium. Decisions such as changing design materials and look aren't as simple as HTC are doing so lets follow, they are the most profitable phone maker after Apple which means what their doing works so they'll keep the winning formula
Sure this phone is a beast in performance wise but it's a shit in design wtf? samsung please release with a new design(like the mighty s2)

Samsung can do it to prove they can anything even to iPhone parts. No like some idiot can't even get out the point of feature they say. can herself make better phone then Samsung. There is no best phone but only better phone.
No matter how many cores they add it to the CPU & how much gigs they add it to the RAM it is still Samsung & will never learn how to work on the design & look factor of a smartphone..
in the desperation to seek out a different design from all of their similar looking Galaxy line up they designed such a poor & incredibly unbelievable design especially from back, that is unacceptable for a high end smartphone like S3..
there are better alternatives..
I do not see if S3 has a hole for attaching lanyard strap. Can someone (author) comment on this this? Is this region specific, since both S1 and S2 had it, at least in Europe...?

NO, I don't put any of my phones in a case. It's like slapping myself in the face for paying premium for a phone that sits hidden in a case/bag.
I DON'T HAVE AN IPHONE.
Speaking of trolling I'm not because trolling means to heavily favor a specific phone/manufacturer and I don't, I'm just saiyng my opinion(freely).
You could be the troll in question because you favor atlast one phone, in this case Samsung!
