    Personal Opinions

    I myself have a Galaxy SII and I don't feel any need to upgrade at all... I feel as though Samsung pulled an "Apple" on us today. Sure it's a decent hardware upgrade and the software is appealing but I don't think it's enough. The first thing I'd do with the phone is put CyanogenMOD9 on it because in my opinion it's much more functional than TouchWhiz...which looks terrible.

    In my opinion the better purchase for new buyers would be the HTC One X, which has a Super LCD display with a 720p resolution. The problem with the SGSIII is that it uses a Pentile pixel arrangement which causes pixelation in text, regardless of it's 306ppi.

Just keep in mind the US/NA version will probubly have different specs...

Probubly will get the Snapdragon S4 instead of the Exynos, Which isnt so bad (The S4 is one of the fastest processors out there and i have little doubt its more power efficient) and we will likely only get a 16gb model....

-edit- Great phone by the way, I'm just cautious with it

I want to see some benchmarks on the new Exynos quad core before I render my decision. It may actually be a really good processor.

Why would samsung use Qualcomm's soc when exynos is their own in house soc? This isn't the same case as the HTC one X, ATT opted for the S4 because of 4G LTE which the Tegra 3 (international htc one x) doesn't natively support.

I'm sure it will be the fastest CPU for a mobile device since my GS2 can keep up with the S4 with some overclocking. The really question is how efficient is it. I'm guessing it won't be nearly as good on the battery as the S4 is.

Agree. I believe I'll be choosing the HTC One X over the SGSIII.... it's just ungodly... and plastic? Really?
