just looking at the htc one x... similar screen, processors similar on paper. seems samsung has better though even though slightly slower probably caus of ice cream sandwich in most things...
front camera better on samsung, i think in the past samsung have had better cameras, though nowhere near nokias standard ofc.
nice features on samsung, bump, and s talk or whatever their version of siri is, yes its "nothing new on iphone" but the phone is better. apple will bring out their new phone in 6 months and it will be the spec of this phone.... why wait?
im due an upgrade so going for this now. happy out

Samsung Galaxy SIII 16GB Now Available For Pre-Order For £499.95 From Amazon UK

Quote:
Samsung's next flagship smartphone finally launched last week and we spent many paragraphs proffering our opinions on it. Most of us cannot wait to get our grubby hands on it, but it looks like UK customers will be getting it pretty soon, as the Galaxy SIII has gone up for pre-order on Amazon UK.
The 16GB version of the Galaxy SIII in Pebble Blue or Marble White will retail for £499.95 ($806.67) and will be available from the expected release date of May 30, 2012. It is unlikely that Amazon UK will offer the 32GB variant of the device any time soon, as it is currently exclusive to Vodafone UK.

It's a pity that the Euro is so bad vs the Pound at the moment!

£500 is over €620

And I don't reckon it will be getting any less 'bad' any time soon tbh. There a couple of years ago when it was almost at parity with the Euro were exceptional times. Unfortunately it seems for the moment anyway, the cheapest way of getting the new phones is on contract with eMobile or whatever.. Not the way ti should be but it is. check out German Amazon too, they will also ship here without bother

http://www.amazon.de/Samsung-Smartph...6488513&sr=8-1

Its €588 there, not a whole lot cheaper but better than nothing..

Yeah, amazon.de would be the better option alright!

Phonesonline.ie has it for €629, so not much difference from Amazon UK.

After waiting months for the sIII to be announced I was greatly disappointed with the overall design of it. So I went in and bought the HTC one X yesterday and I have to say it's just brilliant. Looks a lot better than the Sammy tbh id say its just as good if not better

Unboxing of sorts.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KzDwx...e_gdata_player



edit: A review of sorts too: http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_gala...view-757p2.php

I like this bit: ''The 4.8" Super AMOLED of HD resolution at the front is where the Samsung I9300 Galaxy S III magic happens. The screen image quality is every bit as impressive as its specs suggest - tack sharp and with perfectly deep blacks, it's arguably the best you can find on the market.''


BUT time will tell I guess! Darn I want to play now!

Not much talk of the notification led in any previews at the moment so hopefully it actually is there and not just a charging led.

It's a pity there isn't a black version, I think the blue is gick and white is a girls colour I'm going to hold out for it over the one x though unless it's looking like July before meteor pick it up here
