Super AMOLED -> Comparing the SGS2 screen to my Xperia Arc screen, I prefer the Arc.

Higher Pixel Density -> False, because if it's 4.7" and 720x1280, it will have a lower density then smaller screens with the same resolution

Faster CPU/GPU -> It's a phone, after what point does the CPU/GPU because excessively fast?

More battery -> I'd like to see how large the battery is and how efficient the new Exynos processor is. I have my doubts that it will be any better than what is currently available.

 

And do we even know what the iPhone 5 has to offer? And don't the One X and Ascend D1 Quad already compete?

I would guess and say that the s3 won't have a 3d screen.

I think having a 4.7 inch 720x1280 screen with AMOLED PLUS would be really nice looking, and for me, I think it would be a deciding factor, considering most of the specs between the One X and the S3 are probably gonna be pretty similar. Also, the S3 is rumored to have much better materials than the S2, so that might be pretty nice smile.gif The One X is made of plastic, if I remember right. Although, my experience with HTC builds using plastic has been good. The One S has a nice treated aluminum build though smile.gif

The junk camera on the nexus would be enough for me to upgrade to something with a nice camera.

The OneX is poly-carbonate unibody. I will wait to see what the S3 has to offer, but the OneX may make me switch carriers to Sprint if the S3 is going to a. never come to verizon b. take until the fall to arrive. Sick of Verizon's phone line-up. STALE.

I hope they use a similar quality DAC in the S3 that they used for Galaxy S1 and Nexus S. The S2 had a horrible Yamaha DAC and I need a smartphone that has great music quality!

I would love that. My EVO 3D unfortunately has a noisy headphone jack, and I would love to get a phone that has a nice, clean sound. My Galaxy S1 had good sound, especially using voodoo sound smile.gif

It's a bit dated, but I hope that helps!

Would be awesome to have the Wolfson DAC back, hopefully one of the higher-end ones so it can drive demanding headphones without requiring an amp. biggrin.gif

Reason to upgrade?
In a word: Pentile.

I really hope this comes with super amoled +, might be my next phone.

I'm not due for an upgrade for half a year still, so I'm sure the market will be even more different when I can get a new phone. Thanks though smile.gif
