    A little underwhelming after all the noise in the last few months. Also not a good looking device compared to the S2 (IMO)

    This is not a cellphone. This is 'n "mini-tab".

    The only thing good about this is the chipset, cpu and battery.

    The HTC One X is surprisingly manageable with the 4.7" screen, I wonder if the 0.1" will be the deal breaker?

    I just went to go and get a ruler to see how big a difference 0.1" is and yes, it's a massive difference. lol

    I guess the HTC One X can then also be called a "mini-tab".

    Hmmm, only about the most important aspects of a device.

    Things I consider in getting a phone.

    Size: S3 too big
    Looks: S3 looks like the cheap Android phones
    OS: S3 runs Android.

    They still should've gone with a 1.8ghz CPU to make it future proof. Ram should've been at least 2GB. Screen should've been Full HD.

    Dude, why hate on Android. Both iOS and Android are decent operating systems.

    Don't get this whole uber fanbooi thing. I prefer Android, but iOS has its merits too and neither of them make me want to

    I'm no fanboy. Personal taste only. I had Android devices before. I just like iOS more. The face was a bit too much, I know. Sorry about that.

    I still think Samsung should've done more with the S3.
