There will always be "newer/better" phone just six months away. I understand S4 is just around the corner as well.
Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, but (to me) there's no denying RMH looks classier than S3. Battery life, well, that's a no contest unless you pick up a Seido battery for the S3 (making it bulkier).
I understand JB is showing up as OTA update for some RMH users, but I haven't heard anything about S3 yet.
If you travel internationally, then RMH is really the only choice. Unless you want to go through the gyrations of rooting the phone and modifying S3 to be GSM usable (for Verizon users). Rooting isn't the painful part, it's all the steps you have to go through to go to GSM and back.
So other than the bulk of the extra battery and built-in GSM capability, you can't go wrong with either.
BTW, I found out that RMH has the "Apple like" panoramic picture taking. The one where you just slide the phone from left to right. S3 didn't have that (as stock).
One more note. Speaker phone on the RMH was better (IMO) than the S3. So if you use that function a lot, you may want to test it out.
