Aaron reviews the Samsung Galaxy S III, Samsung's newest flagship device.  Going head to head against the HTC One X, the international version offers a 1.4 GHz quad-core Exynos processor, 4.8-inch Super AMOLED HD (720p) display, 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording, a 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera, 2,100 mAh battery, Android 4.0 with TouchWiz, and HSPA+ connectivity.  It's coming soon to the US, and if it performs as well as the international version does, it'll be a hot seller.  Part 1 of 2.

Keith Thomas I'm looking forward to the Motorola Ultimo! Its a 14ghz six-core processor with 32 teraflops of onboard storage (sorry, no removable sdcard), universal carrier, Android/iOS 4.2" screen smartphone, which can transform into a 19" tablet! It only costs $2.3 million! But, its only available in my head...

Cunningham Quinton
Cunningham Quinton I really excited about the htc 1 x international version clocked at 1.5 gigahertz quad core. I'm really not a samsung fan, the user interface looks to cartoonish I like htc sense 4. oh much better.
Enrique BigPapi Martinez
Enrique BigPapi Martinez I have my GSM galaxy nexus which I love, and after watching some videos, and doing some tests of my own... I don't see a big enough difference between the 2 for me to get the S3. Don't get me wrong great device, but the galaxy nexus is smooth and you can't beat constant updates.

Marcus Cadwell
Marcus Cadwell The next iPhone. The features in ios6 from "do not disturb" to "passbook" are features I'll use all the time. All the time. The value of a phone doesn't lie in raw specs alone, it's the usefulness of it. I'm loving the crap out of ios after switching from android

Adrian Anguiano "Apple is a piss poor company"? Apple is sitting on stacks you idiot. Their OS Is about simplicity, and a reliant consistent user interface. Yea you can't customize as much, get over it. Simple buy an Android phone and shut up.
Anthony Bailey
Anthony Bailey I'm still yearning for my Galaxy Note that I already own. Sorry, but the HTC One X nor the S III do it for me. Now, I'm longing for a potential Galaxy Note II.

Jed Tolentino
Jed Tolentino Grant Van Brunt: not everything is about specs, as shown by the various android phones on the market, you can have the top of the line stuff in a phone, but a crappy OS or UI on it, then the specs go right out the window. Apple caters to every day users who rely on functionality and ease of use. With that said, I've pre-ordered the pebble blue model. :)

Grant Van Brunt
Grant Van Brunt Daniel Denton Mosley: only not........ i had my Htc Evo 3d waaaaayyyyyy before the iphone 4s came out and the 4s was waaaayyy behind by the time it had released, months after the htc evo 3d had dropped. Apple is a piss poor company and always have been behind because people are stupid sheep that just want it because that is what everybody else has rather than thinking for themselves and checking specs....
Grant Van Brunt
Grant Van Brunt fix your damn page so i can load it ffs.....

Tyrus Bobo Da Keyboardest Galaxy s3...I've been a iPhone owner 4 6 years and my 4 messed up on me.... I ended up trading with my nephew for a HTC inspire... It took some getting use to...but I am now a Droid fan.....I just don't think the iPhone 5 will be much different from the 4....it's time for a completely new design hardware and software
