Default Help me choose!

Hi everyone!

I have finally decided to buy a new phone and have waited to see what CES 2013 brought. I am now wondering if I should wait until the Xperia Z is released in the UK (mid February) or just buy the Galaxy S3 now. If I wait until February then MWC happens and I will probably want to wait again, then the S4 will be announced etc. so I am wondering if it is better just to buy the Galaxy S3 now.

I want the phone mainly for music, web browsing and gaming and from what I have read there is only one benchmark where Adreno 320 thoroughly bests Mali 400MP, in all others it is a very minor victory and considering the Xperia Z has twice the pixels is worth the wait or will it perform worse in games/emulators.

The Mali 400MP in the S3 currently runs any emulator/game on the market and also how future proof is it compared to the Adreno 320? At worst it will run games at lower settings?

Otherwise I care little for the improved screen (they are both awesome) or UI customizations. The Xperia Z will probaly have better battery life at stock but the Galaxy S3 can have an upgraded battery (that will likely be better) so I wonder if it is worth the wait?
