The rest? Yeah, it's not as hardy as the Desire...But what do you expect? The Desire has a metal case.
Why do I have to be on something to see the flaws in the GS3? I am not sure who are worse, Apple people or Samsung people. The S3 comes out and everyone gets on their knees for Samsung all of a sudden, in regard to the phone, completely ignoring the flaws it has. As a whole Samsung makes wonderful products, and I am overall extremely pleased with them, unfortunately for myself, business, friends, and employees the S3 hasn't been great.
3 of the 4 users I am close with that have the S3 all have the same complaints, and all exhibit the same flaws. The 4th person with the S3 simply bought it just because it was "new and cool" and didn't even know how to text prior to buying it!
You can ramble off all the specs you want, and how they are double, triple, or quadruple, that of the Desire. Unfortunately many of these vast improvements don't really translate into anything outside of synthetic benchmarks, as at the end of the day it is still a phone. Not a single person I know who has an S3 can truthfully say that they can browse the web, text, check e-mail, or dial any faster. Faster at gaming and certain app loading? Sure, but we use our phones for business 99% of the time.
I just refuse to put a product on a pedestal because that seems to be the thing to do, or it is the strong opposition to Apple. When I lift a product up, it is because that product truly deserves it.
