    My GF ordered one for me for my BD and it is supposed to ship today. From everything I have read, it is the best phone on the market today with a Qualcom dual core Snap Dragon processor, 2 gigs of RAM and the latest Android 4.0 OS.

    It is kind of big with a 4.8" screen but that's OK with me. I'm kind of excited about getting it and am wondering if anyone else out there has also ordered one.

    I passed because we in the US got stuck with the dual core instead of the quad core.

    The screen does look nice, but not nice enough to pay full freight to replace my SII Skyrocket.

    Let us know how you like it when you get it, supposed to be a great phone

    How is the screen in sunlight? That's my one complaint about the Rezound I have now- Can't see it very well in direct sunlight.

    Well who knows when I will get it now. AT&T has screwed up the release date. Mine was supposed to ship yesterday but didn't. Customer service cannot not give me a shipment date except for "sometime after the 21st".

    You realize there are already CM beta builds, right? Samsung is friendly to the modding community. If you want vanilla ICS on your S3, you can have it.

    Well I have had it for over a month now and it is a great phone. Im still figuring out how to use and even find all of the features on it.

    I messed around with the S3 and the HTC OneX at the store for a while. Spec wise the S3 won, but I couldnt stand the physical home button. Plus I liked the camera on the OneX more.

    Camera on the S3 is awesome. Its the best phone I've ever owned. Physical button is actually kinda nice.

    I'd take the extra gig of ram over the different processor any day. This phone flies.

    No, but I'm due for an upgrade in Oct. and it's looking like a strong contender.

    Both the spouse and I upgraded our cell phones last week to the Samsung Galaxy SIII and we like most things about it. Great 8MP camera, fast, has the ability to connect to WiFi at home or anywhere that provides wifi. Only thing so far that I dislike about the phone is the S-Voice--this feature sucks as bad as the voice command feature on My Garmin Nuvi GPS. It is also large. It is almost impossible to do anything on it without using both hands.

    If you don't like s-voice, just don't use it.

    I don't like it either so I don't use it. Its just a gimmick on a otherwise outstanding phone.
