STO, 21 May 2012Nothing in the review made me want to swap my sII with this ugly phone
I will wait for Galaxy... more"Once again, the bar's been raised quite high and yet another Galaxy S is setting the standards - not only for Android but smartphones as a whole."
I think S3 is one of the most, if not the most, beautiful phones ever! "its materials look better in person than they do on photos" "the Samsung Hyperglaze coating makes sure the S III doesn't look like a $200 handset in real life as the press photos suggested. Hyperglaze basically means that there's another, see-through layer of plastic on top of the back panel - similar to what we saw on the Meizu MX. This layer helps mask some of the fingerprints and is actually decently grippy."

I will wait for Galaxy s4 or move to HTC evo LTE
GSMArena reviews are the best and they're great fun to read (loved the Alien vs. Predator title you came up with in an earlier article!). It's nice to note that your reviews are very balanced and never condescending. Wish you would start video reviews too.

Anonymous, 20 May 2012i dont like it specially the design its awful I ll know for sure if it's really ugly in real in about 10 days, i got one preordered (sorry guys, i need a shiny new phone) to swap my S2. And as some people said, i watch mostly the front / screen, phone is upside down only to mute an annoying ringtone (touchwiz feature).
It sounds like the perfect phone but obviously you wont mention any bugs that it has straight out of the box which will flood the forums with user issues.. hence, Samsung Nexus Galaxy
AnonD-55342, 21 May 2012Then go comment on the HTC threads and leave this for people who prefer SamsungIs the comment area not for commenting and discussion? Or do you prefer to the comment area to be biased towards Samsung, and not to hear the opinion of users who aren't Samsung fanboys. He simply posted his preference towards the HTC over the Samsung which a lot of people may be interested in. People aren't reading the review after they've bought the phone. They're trying to make a decision before they drop their money. For some people his comment may have been a tipping point. What is the point of a comment section if not to make a variety of comments either for or against the product in question.
It's just too ugly for me... I'm going to stick with my S2 and wait till the S4 - S2 will still be good till the S4 arrives. :)
GreekGeek, 21 May 2012Really ... 4.8inches and you expect it to sell like S2 ? I don't think soI think it'll sell better.

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
Mobile reviews n real world usage is different so dont get sucked in people.

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)
