The specs are great .... But it is only 1GB of ram , I think it is not enough when looking to the quad core processor ... There's no improvement on cameras mega pixels , it keeps the 8 mp that found on the galaxy s2 ... Sure there's some other improvements on the camera .... The phone ( like the most android phones ) getting bigger and bigger ... The 4.8 inch screen is great for browsing and watching movies , but it's a very big for a phone ... The s2 is big enough ..... And why samsung still keeping the cheap plastic for its high end models
Those who say that the design is the only downside should think that its the most selling aspect of a phone...who would want from a big and ugly speedy phone? Tell me...executive? Of course not its so cheap plastic for them...women? They cant even hold it in on hand...maybe only computer freaks would like it and its not sure...i think its a big fail for samsung...
Im not an apple fan, i own an n9 but i think apple understand very well people needs...
Sorry for the long post
I will stick with my SGN.
I would never want Samsung Galaxy Nexus with a home button & blue/ white glossy body.
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.
AnonD-53619, 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
