IDK what more people were expecting? Other than the lack of that new water proof nano coating and maybe a ceramic body, IDK what all the disappointment is about. Like you said even the SG2 stomps most things into the ground. IMO phones are back to small upgrades now. They are at the mercy of new technology and if there is no new technology to put in them then we get this.

I have the i9100, and this is a big upgrade. Zero shutter lag? I have to wait for like 3 seconds for the i9100. Although most benchmark dont really mean anything (like quadrant, since it can easily be manipulated) but a few mean a lot to me and the SG3 is a lot better. Battery is also a lot better without having it fat. Even putting a 2000mah battery in the i9100 does make it fatter.

The biggest disappointment for me is the screen. I was expecting full PGB matrix instead of pentile. Not that it prevents me from planning to buy it though. I was thinking of buying the galaxy nexus, but since it doesnt have a microsd (using around 20GB on my current i9100 microsd out of 32), SG3 or next iphone seems to be my new phone.
