It's always to dark. The smart stay feature (the one that keeps the screen on when you are looking at it) only works maybe 25% of the time. The tap the top of the phone to scroll back to the top of the page rarely works for me. I do like how you can play videos in a small window and do other things like surf the web at the same time. It's pretty cool.
If any of you are thinking of making the switch and have any questions feel free to ask and I'll do what I can to answer.
The SG3 has brightness settings, they can be changed to your liking to make the screen brighter
However, just like the one x doing so will make your battery life shorter, with the SG3 you can pop in a new battery, not so much with the HOX. I had the HOX for a month and have had the SG3 since 6/21, the SG3 has so many "WOW" features it leaves the HOX behind, the SG3 can take a picture by saying the word "shoot", call someone your texting by lifting the phone to your head, you can answer or reject calls by saying "answer" or "reject", smart stay actually works very well, the default email client allows you to click on links in emails, the alarm clock can wake you up then read you the days headlines, weather and stock prices. The cell reception quality on the SG3 is great, and there is no "Design flaw" with the antenna like there is on the HOX. The list goes on, the SG3 is the better phone, spend a few weeks with it and you will forget about HOX.
