Its a very slick phone. For everyone who complains about it feeling cheap... who cares, its about how it performs, and 99% of us are gonna put a case on it anyway so what its make of doesn't matter, shut your mouth. Sorry, I just think that's a really stupid thing to complain about. It is just about the same size as my GNex with the trident case on, however the S3 is much much thinner, which I like. The one I played with was white, haven't seen a dark blue one yet (or whatever other color they come in). It feels very slick, it has some unique options like its unlock animation is really cool, a couple of things here and there that are different from our 4.0.4. Pros: Very fast, see pic below. Very responsive, thin, sleek, beautiful, amazing display quality. I compared it side by side to my GNex watching an HD video of a coral reef dive and I can say that even though the S3's screen is only a little bigger, the S3's screen is quite an upgrade. I thought the Nexus' screen was incredible (which it is) but the S3 takes it to a whole new level with whiter brighter whites, darker deeper black, and more vivid/saturated colors... most noticeably in the blue-green sprectrum. And the clarity is incredible, which is weird seeing as to how the resolution is the same as the GNex, maybe its the contrast or something. But nonetheless the display is stunning and is a huge upgrade from the GNex. The snapdragon S4 CPU and 2 gigs of RAM offers up more available processing power and capacity than I think I could ever use, leaving the UI and everything else free to sail smooth without hangs or glitches... can't wait to see how it is on 4.1.1 Of course all the other hardware upgrades, such as the 8MP/1.9MP cameras, REMOVABLE SD CARD which you DO NOT HAVE TO REMOVE THE BATTERY TO CHANGE OUT! Thank god samsung, its about time we didn't have to do a battery pull to change the SD card. Stock, out of the box, S3. Cons: Physical home button which I don't like, and the fixed android buttons next to it (im not sure what they're called). I've become very accustomed to tour softkeys and being able to customize their look and function, I think thats a great feature of the GNex. And the stock UI is terrible... not functionally, i just hate the way it looks, there's too much clutter, it doesn't seem user friendly (for someone who could be new to android or not a tech savvy user)... I would definitely root it and throw on a custom ROM, or at the very least change to Nova. So overall I can see this thing has HUGE potential once the devs have their way with it, especially with JB on its way. I'm seriously considering it, I don't know though... I know I absolutely don't have to, there's no practical reason for it, I just really want to. I'm gonna sleep on it for a few weeks and wait to see how the development community forms around it. What do you guys think, how many people are thinking about jumping ship?
