Considering the fact that you've used the HTC One X and reviewed it, and now previewed the S III, is it a smoother experience than the One X? I know they are very very similar in specs besides the different Processors, but is it more lag-free than the One X, or is it the same? Or are they both even lag free? In other words I don't care much for synthetic benchmarks I just want to know in real use which is faster/smoother.

How much difference does the "NORMAL" mode makes in terms of colour accuracy?

The SIII because it boasts the best (or at least one of the best) web browsing experience(s) to date. Also they have chose a pentile matrix screen on the SIII because it keeps its initial quality longer which is beneficial for users who want to keep the phone for about 18 months or longer.

hmmm thanks ...
actually i wanted to ask how li-ion is when compared to li-poly in terms of longevity

lol ya the pentile reasoning is an excuse, the One X's screen is much brighter and just looks better than the S3 (when the X was compared to the GNex)

Li-Ion Pros: High energy density.
Does not need prolonged charging when new.
Relatively low self-discharge

Li-Ion Cons:
Requires protection circuit to maintain voltage and current within safe limits.
Gets hot quickly
Not fully mature, metals and chemicals are changing on a continuing basis.
Cannot be molded

Li-Poly Pros:
Very low profile, can be as thin as credit card
Flexible form factor, can be molded to fit the compartment perfectly
Very light
Improved safety, more resistant to overcharge; less chance for electrolyte leakage.

Li-Poly Cons:
Lower energy density and decreased cycle count compared to lithium-ion.
Expensive to manufacture.
Higher cost-to-energy ratio than lithium-ion

for day to day usage, the SGS3 should have a much much longer battery life. It is a bigger battery to start with, one of the benefits of Pentile is the lower battery usage vs RGB, and if worse comes to worse, u can flip out the SGS3 battery with a spare in a heartbeat where you dont have the choice on the onex.

I don't agree about beats, that's a marketing scheme, you won't noticed the difference unless you buy a beats headset and then is insignificant. The s3 offers direct call, pop up play, smart stay, s voice, between other features.
