    In my estimation, it's time for a new King on the block. I wrote earlier about how the iPhone 4S is still dominant, but maybe the time has come..

    Doesn't every high end Android phone already kill the iPhone?, if your talking about popularity with the unwashed non techy masses who cares.

    Yeah gotta agree, in no way is the iPhone better technically, nor has it been compared to the top android offering for a while now.

    How many phones have now been called "the iphone killer"? For whatever reason, people love their iphones. None of those phones "killed" it, and this one wont either. Who cares. Get whatever phone you like.

    I agree that the top Android phones challenge the 4S, but from start to end experience, I still give the edge to the iPhone. I'm hoping that's changing and I'm hoping the Galaxy S3 can be the difference.

    I just launched a blog called Convert to Android for all the people that are still holding out. The time has definitely come!

    Lots of Android phones are already iPhone killers when comparing specs but will this phone catch on the same way the iPhone has? Maybe.

    It looks like Samsung are going all out with this one.

    I can't even remember seing advertising for the Galaxy S II when it was launched, nothing.

    That's what I'm saying. I'm not talking on a 1:1 spec comparison. It's no contest there. I'm talking about the entirety of the user experience.

    I also agree that Samsung is going all out this time. The success of the Note seemed to provide some momentum that's being carried over to the release of the Galaxy S3..

    To be the iPhone killer Samsung first must distance itself from looking like the iPhone
