I have this feeling that no matter what the phone looks like or made out of it will be the biggest Android seller this year. Samsung has taken a page out of Apple's playbook when it comes to pushing "one" device on every carrier. Poor HTC was close but the DNA/Verizon screwed that up.
And I don't expect Samsung to run into any production issues by sticking with plastic compared to the hard to machine metal. Samsung will spit these out like flapjacks.

My only disappointment would be a non-removable battery with no SD card support. We pretty much know that it would be suicide to release a 720p display with a crappy processor.

Non removable battery with no SD card slot? Reminds me of HTC One with aluminum body. No harsh feelings HTC fanboys

If the One has SD/Rem.Bat I wonder how much less successful the SIII would have been? I was wanting the One over the SIII until the release confirmed the rumors.

Removable battery and SD card is why I have an S3 and not a One. Will take those in plastic over not having them in metal.

yes and sometimes the downside of having an aluminum body is when it overheats you gonna ouch holding it. Experienced that already on Motorola L6 way years back.

How to become the undisputed king of Android:

step 1.) Slavishly copy Apple's designs, and infringe upon their patents.

step 2.) Follow step no. 1

excuse 1.) Too bad Apple does not know how to fight back. All Tim is doing is telling Phil to bad mouth Android before Samsung's big date.

excuse 2.) Follow excuse no 1 when iPhone 5s sales die after 2 months

Who copied apples designs because it wasn't Samsung at all or Google or any other manufacter. As you can see no android windows or black berry device looks or feel like a boring iPhone. Mostly all of the things about an iPhone has been thought of an has existed way before apple thought of it. All they did was just buy a stupid patent for designs that some one else thought of . Oh and let me give you a little bit more. Processer in an iPhone that's made by qualicom and samsung screen made by lg and sharp camera sensor Sony so please tell me who is coping or who invented sure not apple nothing is apple about an
iPhone but the os and that's really not even apple lol if you break the os all the way down guess what its based off a Linux kernal. Just like an android device and even a PlayStation 3 and more. So do some research before you come on here talking mess because your in denial about a boring iphone that you go spend 200.00 every other year to upgrade there phone. Do you realize the os is the same since 2007 with maybe 1 or2 features added to it every year. And better yet its stuff that has all ready existed. Most of us techy guys like all devices and we. An give credit were credit is due and mostly all manu factors has been innovating and coming up with new ideas and form factors except one company and you know who that is so stop being a hater and give credit were credit is due

The courts don't lie, and if everything you said was true, Samsung wouldn't have been forced to pay even a single penny to Apple for damages. However, even though the penalties for their crimes have been reduced, they still lost the case, and were found guilty of misconduct...

We all know which particular company was already found guilty of stealing intellectual property and/or technology from Apple. You may not like the truth, but the US judicial system obviously doesn't share your point of view. Take it up with them ;o)

UK courts (and few others across the globe) didn't agree on Apple's take and forced apple to mention it on their website. Samsung's case is still going through the appeals so it's not yet final ... there's a difference between the two ...

Looking for the next big thing on something that been done over and over again so if they want the next big thing they should move away from the current big thing "Android" and find there own thing to make it BIGGER then everything.
