People please look again at htc one x.It is a joke in comparison with SIII.
It is a great effort for htc company and their fans to write hiralious things about GSIII in every websites.But they know that htc can not compete with Samsung never ever!!!

even i dint understand all the initial hatred towards sgs III. sammy is trying really hard to innovate and they are doing a great job. its true that this time the main focus is on software rather on design alone.
i think we were expecting a lil too much. i am pretty sure SIII will out perform everything else there just like SII did.
samsung is really moving towards the right direction with android. because android is more than a smartphone os. its the future. few years down the line i dont want a piece of glass & alluminium with an app launcher. i want my device to be productive, innovative. SGS III is the first step towards the future and its gonna get better with Note 2 and next galaxies.
its just all my personal views and i have really started to liking S III with each passing day.

The joke is actually the Samsung. Samsung phones have been, and still are, notorious for using cheap plastic and terrible screens. AMOLED is great and all for displaying blacks, but that's about it. There is no such thing as "white" on a Samsung AMOLED screen - the closest thing you can get is a light blue. Tilt the phone a little bit? The whole screen turns blue and you lose all your colors. Further, all Samsung phones feel like toy phones.. every other phone on the market feels more solid and substantial than a Samsung.

The One X's construction is infinitely better than the S3, it has a real screen (RGB as opposed to the crappy PenTile on the S3), and the S-LCD 2 screen is said by many reputable reviewers to be the best screen they've ever seen on a mobile device.

^ Samsung has always tried to copy Apple.. their App drawer looks like an iPhone UI, and now they're trying to "innovate" with features that are just copying Apple. Don't get me wrong, I hate Apple; I just think it's sad that Samsung does nothing but imitate them.

The One X has superior build quality, a superior screen, and has innovative software such as the camera on the One X, as well as Sense 4.0, which many agree to be the best manufacturer UI on Android. The only thing it lacks is a swappable battery and MicroSD slot, but to be realistic, most users won't need that anyway.

wow really???

1. they didn't use the ceramic casing
2. same screen as gNEX which is inferior to the slcd2
3. same gpu while good is the same crap they pulled with the gnex which will be crush when the new iphone comes out
4. small battery compared to the razr maxx
5. US didn't even get the EXYNOS but the crapdragon instead
6. Tired design

when the gs2 came out it was king and NO phone can compete with it. Even now after the gs2 gotten ics update no previous phone can compete and benchmark shows that it is still top 10, so to me samsung has F up big time.

AWheredoes it lack? the slcd 2 produces just as saturated colors(just in case you dont know the color saturation on the super amoled is decreased) other than one gpu test there's not much diff in benchmarks. the onex has an rgb matrix. the design of the onex is much better. beats audio is there. the lack of sd card is bad i know that. i dont see how it fails to compete s3. and gaming is better on the one x as it has access to tegrazone games. so there you go. i think one x is just as good. that makes you an idiot not the many people who can see the truth.

I second what you just posted. I asked myself what makes the htc one x better than the s3 and the answer is nothing. In real life the s3 is like the one x with additional speed and features. The s3 design to me is nicer and i love plastic phones. The screen maybe pentile but i own a note and it s**ts on all screens on the phones my friends have. I wont be suprise if the s3 even out performs the upcoming iphone 5

hehe... This SG3 is a real joke for me... It looks like Corby's big brother. Come on people, you were just expecting too much from Samsung and you get nothing special. They were just copying things from Apple (siri) and HTC (camera burst shot, taking photos while making video). The only good thing about S3 is use in a car. Otherwise it is pathetic. Come on, Experia and One X look soooo much better.
