Isn't it amusing how people who claim to not enjoy CB at all simply can't stay away???? It's because it's CRACKBERRY, the BEST BB site....

played with the sIII a while back, i personally wasn't quite as impressed as i felt i should have been... but then again i have an amaze 4G already and received the ics update that same day. the features Samsung plugs into it are great at the software level... but i still find there are just too many bugs in the android os overall. i could never commit to it as my primary platform... in fact i really only use it for skype.

Considering they are both pretty much the same hardware-wise, I would probably take the One X for sense 4 over touchwiz

Edit: Actually I'd probably get it from Expansys rather than Amazon and even there the Pebble Blue one is on pre-order.

Just make sure you are getting the right version. It could be there are different ones for the carriers that don't use LTE (e.g. Wind, Mobilicity)

Hard choice....Hopefully the most difficult one we have to make in life.

Here's a comparo of the main devices from each carrier and international. This shows the One X as impressive and fully holding its own against the GS3. Too bad it's limited memory-wise. If it wasn't for the limited memory, I'd tear myself over the two.

HTC will have a wake-up call when they aren't able to sell enough card slot-lacking devices to compete with Samsung and the others.

HTC mistakenly believed the "cloud" was a viable alternative to physical memory.

EDIT- I just remembered one thing about the GS3, other than the software, that's a little off-putting: That front button. It looks raised above the surface of the display and, if so, will be prone to constant unintentional activation while sitting in a belt holster case. I really don't prefer to use a body case on my phones so it appears my choices just got much simpler by eliminating the GS3. Sadly it also means I'll have to wait agonizingly till the end of the year for BB10 devices.

The Google Nexus line doesn't either have sd card slots. They take up valuable space, and if there is enough on board storage, they figure "who needs it." They are right, most people don't need it. I have a Google Nexus S with no sd card slot but 16GB of storage, for transferring it's harder but otherwise...

Got a week old One X on a straight up trade for my iPhone 4S. Very impressed. Had GS2 last year and ICS is so much better then Gingerbread. Also Sense is much better then Touchwiz. Now the learning curve again

I still plan to check out BB10. I wonder if it will surpass these "superphones" and I think it has to - I'm hopeful. I'm quite curious as to whether I'd enjoy an Android phone and there's only one way to find out.

No doubt both phones are big but damn they are light. I don't know how much the iPhone weighs but it feels like a brick. Just like Marty said the screen is gorgeous. I got lucky and was able to unload my 4S and nothing out of my pocket. The guy had an upgrade and sold his iPhone 4 the other week but I guess he didn't like the change. I def type better with the bigger screen. Lots to do with this phone.
