As far as I am concerned as of this moment this is the BEST device on the market.

Ever heard of expandable memory and removable battery? And Pentile or not, AMOLED screens look way better than any other LCD.

removable battery and storage is major importance to me and those 2 features alone is why i will get the s3 over the one x...quad core exynos benchmark leaks have shown that it is much more powerful than tegra 3 or s4.bigger battery is a plus,enhanced voice recognition and facial detection etc.yes some features are gimmicky but you get the choice to use them or not..will say i like the look of the one x better

most likely they will be better but by then samusng will have there exynos 5 series which will really be what it should be compared to

thats about the time exynos 5 will be ready but also its about when it will be in a actual consumer device ready to be brought and not just announced.

Don't whine about the s4 until you know for sure or not if its going to land on your carrier.

Personally I'm getting exynos.. even if i hhave to import it.

Pentile is a minor let down for us geeks on an otherwise exceptional device.. but in the real world its a nearly invisible difference that no one but us geeks will even try to notice.

Im sorry but pentile is totally noticeable. Geek or not. Average people just don't know why the screen doesn't look as sharp.

I use pentile every day. unless you are using heavy red on the screen its completely not noticeable and is still a beauty to behold. whatever negative pentile may be, the beauty of Amoled more than makes up for it. besides ... pentile or not its a pretty high density screen which is the important part.

it's really not that big of a deal, especially after you get used to it.

Agreed,nobody except someone with a microscope can see the difference on a daily basis of pentile and non pentile. Super amoled is far superior in contrast and totally overcomes any pentile minute shortcomings. I have to admit if not a huge fan of the s3 design,myabe that will differ when i have it in my hands. The one x design is more appealing

PhoneArena..Galaxy S2 uses an RGB matrix(as SAMOLED+ does anyway).
That should be a common knowledge, at least for you guys.
Do you even think about the photos you just posted?
Look at the matrix from SGSII and compare it with the One X.
So again - Galaxy SII is RGB, and SIII is PenTile.

Absolutely, it's even in the pictures below, but I've somehow managed to mess up the names! Thanks, darac, it's fixed now.

Oh boo hoo whiners! The display on my Galaxy Nexus looks amazing and so shall the SGS3. The exynos processor will blow everything away.

Vicor, the Samgsung Galaxy S II uses a Super Amoled PLUS. Plus meaning uses normal RGB matrix and not Pentile. Actually that was one of the improvements they did over the original Samsung Galaxy S.
Even in the picture you posted you can see that there are 3 subpixels per pixel in the Samsung Galaxy S II, one red, one green, one blue.
Please be more serious checking the facts!

Absolutely! I've just fixed that, don't crucify me just yet :)

Wait... Is the US version with LTE for sure going to have the snapdragon S4 dual core? Not that I'm complaining but just wanted to know...

I suppose the people that criticize this have microscopic vision now don't they. I have a Galaxy Nexus and I don't see a difference, the screen is beautiful. So all critics go ahead and look for pixels...try not to go blind doing it.
