Specs wise SIII is King. But the real King right now is the LG Optimus G.

Quad Core Snapdragon S4
1500 MHz Krait, Adreno 320
2GB Ram
13 MP camera

Non cheap glass back and front

I'm thinking of getting Sony myself. I'm debating between that LG or the Sony. The only thing that seems like will suck on the Sony is the battery.

not gonna say "suck" but yes they are not as beefy as these phones..... suck? naaa i doubt it....Also if you are really worrying about battery then get the TX because it has a removable battery! Sony FTW!

Yea but if I remove it I'll only have to replace it with the same battery right? Same problem.

So I saw its benchmark scores. Pretty impressive. But when would it come out? And will it be available for AT&T?

I find funny that last year for Sony fanboys benchmarks didn't mean anything, now the xperia line beats the S3? Just because you've seen benchmarks that aren't multi-threaded doesn't mean the Xperias are better, Lets see when the Antutu results come out. Have a nice day.

Just according to technicalities.

More RAM, probably better camera. Thats basically it.

24. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5711; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)


basically, vs. a much larger battery, Motorola build quality and radios, a nearly stock OS and the screen "technically" has a higher pixel density.

My point exactly. Seems like a pretty nice trade... lol

you know, Im gonna have to just trust that Moto engineers have their reasons for going with 1GB.

Sometimes specs can be used as a marketing gimmick.

I think because Motorola's skin doesn't really use up all that much memory, not nearly as much as TouchWiz. So, even though the GS3 has more RAM, the Razr series can probably be supported for as long as the GS3 can be.

especially since Motorola seems to be lightening up their UI with each update instead of the other way around like Samsung. Engadget had their hands on a MAXX HD w/ Jelly Bean and it has the stock Google on-screen navigation keys.

I think you nailed it with the UI comment. Touchwiz certainly has a TON of features, but no doubt it takes a toll on RAM. Im all for a lighter UI. The closer to stock Android the better.

I still think the 2GB is overkill for todays technology. I really think they did it for marketing not because it was needed.

How exactly? The only thing the S3 has over the Razr HD is RAM. Camera too probably, but we haven't seen any samples from the Razr HD. And, the Razr has a bigger battery than the S3, and the UI is more close to stock than TouchWiz, so I'll take that any day...

That's seems like a fair trade; Camera and RAM for a stock-like UI and better battery life, and arguably better build quality. To each his own I suppose

not to mention the RAZRs are waterproof and TouchJiz repellant.

All of the Motorola ranges are really let downed by 1GB Ram,
or else nice phones! but i still like the S3, even tho the really
ugly design, but the Exynos chips gave it away.

Owning both the GS3 and HTC EVO 4G LTE, and with HTC's latest update, IMO the EVO / One X is king of currently available phones. Except for maybe the RAZR HD MAXX with that massive battery. I'll definitely be checking out these Motorola Droids though, they look great.

By 1Gig of ram......and .6 extra MP for the Front cam. Its a narrow victory.

How bout factoring in: waterproofing, better radios, kevlar& aluminum (as opposed to flimsy plastics), bigger/better battery... The victory you speak of quickly turns into sudden death when all aspects are taken into account
