Re: This phone blows iPhone 4S out of the water....
After picking up the S3, I can't help but wonder what some people have against it. I think the design is nice - slightly conservative, but still visually and tactilely appealing. It's light while not feeling flimsy. I like it, and it seems that quite a few others around the world do as well.
I was nervous about making the switch to Samsung's Android software stack after being exclusively an HTC user since my Touch Pro. As it turns out, TouchWiz is a breath of fresh air compared to Sense. It's a great UI, offering some nice improvements to ICS. There are some things that I'm not a fan of, but overall those are so minor that I don't feel the need to change away from the stock UI. Of course, being an Android phone, that's always an option if TW isn't your style. Oh, while I'm thinking of it, the Home button hesitation is simply a pause to see if the user will press the button again to activate S Voice. Launching S Voice and changing the settings to disable that feature removes the delay. It's quite nice once that is disabled.
tl;dr - The S3 is a fantastic phone. Despite being a long-time HTC user, I rate the S3 well above the current EVO. While I can see how some people wouldn't be as fond of a couple features of the S3, you truly have to be a hopeless, die-hard iPhone fanboy to think that it's a bad phone. If Samsung has been tapped to make a new Nexus, the S3 shows that they have the potential to make a fantastic phone. If you can't wait for the next Nexus, get the S3.
