I mean this has the most good features. If Motorola will come out with something better soon it's ok, but now the S3 is the KING! It has not the best design in the world, but it's acceptable(at least for me). I like the S3 because it has some great functions. I don't want to tell them again, you know them as well. By the way as I said some times, we will see other high-end phone from Samsung. This is NOT their last phone for this year. They will announce the R2 as well, I am sure they will continue that series. Samsung could announce the first Tizen OS device as well(I am not telling it will have a big success, we will see how it will perform and how cool will be).

A dual-core is good enough today, but quad-core phones/tablets are replacing laptop computers and game-consoles where you can use the phone and play connected to a big-screen TV...!
Samsung, are you serious? I mean what is this? I thought GS3 is going to be something, but it turnes out to be another plastic toy.. It's too big to be a phone. And I'm not even talking about design, which is WAY worse than GS2. I wouldnt buy it even if it was the only smartphone in the world..
These smartfones i am buying sim free are the same price i was paying in 2003..Maybe the only way to keep them at this price is to use plastic..I would rather have a plastic fone than a fragile dangerous glass fone 110%..I quite like the rubbery feel on the back of some Motorolas but then they are a fingerprint magnet..I think Nokia polycarbonate is best solution with hardened glass with oleophobic coating.I dont know if they can do Gorilla glass yet with oleophobic coating??
I have to laugh......I heard these same comments about the s2 build quality and look what happened once people got hold of them, myself included. I'll stick to my s2 because its a beast already and for the money the s3 doesnt do it for me. I don't mind the design or materials because 99% of people put a plastic or rubber case on there phones ( all my iphone 4s friends have) and what do i need a quadcore for, the dualcore of the s2 handles everything I have been able to throw at it so why upgrade. I'm no fanboy of any brand I just want the biggest bang for my buck....my 2 cents...peace out
2100mah battery is one of the great improvements besides other great things galaxy s3 has, 2100mah in "note" with sync and wifi enabled at night and heavy use in the day time used to give me24 hours with some 10% still remaining.
keeping in view a smaller screen than "note" and considering quad core as well, i think S3 will give us same amount of time with 2100mah battery.
Phone manufacturer need to invest on R&D for batteries as well, just making phone fancy and adding multiple features is of no use until there is some kind of power house baking up. one sees many blogs and even manufacturers recommending to swicth off this, disable that, why, just to add few more hours to phone battery, which is ridiculous, why one should disable features for which he has paid in full, isnt its than better to buy some basic phone instead of spending 100s of dollars.
heard that Apple is developing battery on hydrogen based which gives almost double the time than any lithium ion battery of same capacity

I will respect the CPU that Samsung use on the S3. It's the best in the market but for the rest the S3 doesn't impress me.
Samsung may sell a lot of this but this is not what I was waitting for.
They wanna compete iphone with cheap materials but they may be suprise that HTC, Sony, LG and Moto realese better than Samsung.
PS: I don't like the DESIGN and build quality so cheap for a nice phone.

Second, you realy find the desing from the GS3 better than Xperia S, you are blind or just Samsung fanboy if i read your post.
The only advance what the SG3 has over the Xperia S is the Quadcore CPU nothing more.
A Quadcore CPU vs Dualcores CPU is in OS not big different to see.
Puneet, 11 May 2012S3 -> Pentile Amoled = Super Amoled
S2 -> Pure RGB Amoled = Super Amoled Plus
S2 > S3Yes I got the GS2 it's a very good phone I got it on cash on 8ta, which I could get a Moto Razr but it exclusive only for vodacom. And Vodacom doesn't sell it on cash. I can get a phone on contrat my work doesn't able me to apply.
But I love my GS2 design speed and performance but the battery and the UI aren't my favorite. I did install something else more like HTC Sense.
