    thats e-z the s3 is what good about the s3 lol well since u challenged one of my droid fanatics lol jk lets lay it all on the table.this isnt even about the chassis of the phone what makes the s3 is the os and the components! tell me can u connect an apple phone to your large hdtv? can u swap the battery for a extended battery that will help your phone last longer? can you install a form of recovery on a apple phone and create backs ups? can you expand your phone's memory with a sd card? can you modify the phone the way you want it tweak the ram perhaps over clock the cpu on a apple phone? can u answer yes to atleast one of those questions? if they all answer no then people following a useless fad and they should feel bad about that.

    What the Nexus and S3 can do that the iphone cannot do

    • NFC/Android Beam (tap to share)
    • Live Wallpapers
    • Google Wallet
    • Use Custom launchers
    • Use a Custom ROM, Recovery, or kernel!!!
    • Bigger screen, better resolution
    and thats just off the top of my head. ;)

    I agree that the new iPhone is nothing special, but all this icrap, icult stuff, and saying that it's absolute crap is just plain stupid.
    Maybe other people would take android fanatics more seriously if we didn't sound like we were arguing over our favorite superhero at the age of 9.

    I don't see how its better than the evo lte. The screen is way better then s3's and the design and hardware seem of better quality. Everything else about the same.

    Evolte is really nice too, but s3 does have 2gb of ram and nfc. I'd probably still get an Evolte if choosing between the two

    True, the iphone was/is a great piece of technology and we all need to give it some credit as it was the device that kick started it all off.

    Is it top dawg anymore??? umm no and still falling down the hill. Does this mean its no longer a viable device?? No still a great device, if you dont mind its drawbacks, like the grade school ui, it being so locked down even after jailbreaking it.

    Now the argument with the HTC and Samsung build quality.. well Moto beats both in that dept with HTC coming is 2nd and then LG. Samsungs just have that cheap feel to them, BUT dont let that fool you, the quality is there, but some of us oldschool farts like that solid feel metal gives lol.

    Those specs are for the International version, which also happens to be a quad-core Exynos 4 unlike the US variants which all have a dual-core S4. Not that the quad-core version is any faster.

    There are adapters that you can hook your iPod/iPad/iPhone to your TV with and I'm sure you can overclock them. The rest is all no though.
