are u trying to deny that this isnt disappointing?... i mean the sgIII is nice, but it isnt that much more stunning than the nexus or note... just with an upgraded processor... to me it doesnt have the same presence as the one x does

Tha'ts actually a good point. There are rumors of an i9800 model, which may be a higher-end model and released later so apple is either stuck with their competitor to the GS3, or they have to revamp the development to compete, costing them time and money

Yah wouldn't be surprised if samsung is trying to adjust their product launches. It'd be better to have their new phones launch in the fall quarter before the holiday. Then they would also have the latest and greatest features to compete against the new iphone.

So disappointed with the sgs3. I see no reason to upgrade from my sgs2. I would imagine this is how iphone users felt during the 4s announcement but I guess not because siri probably blew their mind.

That would be stupid if true because apple reall does not do that. They go out and try and get the best posesable tech and because there are so many orders they can get first dibs on products and get the best price.

I was on the edge about it, but now I've confirmed it's a major letdown.
I went to VZW and checked out a Samsung Nexus, it is essentially the same screen. Wow, it was ugly.
1. White is not white! it's dull yellow color that is undeniably obvious.
2. The screen actually had burn in. It was set to sleep after 1 min or so, but even with that I could see the homescreen when I was on other apps, that's unacceptable.
3. Resolution was not as good as my iPhone 4. And yes that is my benchmark for screen quality. If it doesn't look as good as retina, then its crap.

This alone is reason I will not get a SGS3. I want to switch to android and it looks like the HTC One X will be the one for me.

I personally prefer amoled. Better colors and a real treat to look at. they make lcds look dull. Oh as far as ui It doesnt matter because there are many great launchers and i would put a custom rom on it to get the most out of it..

Yeah, better colors = overly saturated, unnatural color, blueish tint..

Is that what you mean by better color, okay i got it..

We've all been SAMSUNG'ed AGAIN...nothing special. This phone is nothing more than the current NEXUS on VW with a bigger display.

..with 4 times better overall processing power, with superior battery, bigger internal storage, SD card slot, better camera. yep, that covers it.

First of all, the SGIII's processor for verizon is not going to be the exynos chip and therefore probably not quite 4 times better, the battery is better on the SGIII (but not better than the razr maxx), and storage and camera improvements aren't that big of a deal. ALSO the NEXUS has stock android/faster updates.

I still think the galaxy nexus screen looks better than the one x when side by side in real life but maybe i'm just a sucker for unreal stand-outish colors..

I was hoping for something to set this phone apart but with an S4 for the US version its going to be about the same as the rest of the new phones. I would get excited if the quad core came to the US but unfortunately...

I have one question. What exactly do you expect more out of a cell phone?
