Being this is xda, I understand what you are saying, but realistically under actual use there is nothing in those benchmarks to indicate some sort of outdated cripple of a phone.

It's all conjecture at this point anyway, but how fast do you need to run netflix and angry birds to feel satisfied with a phone?

I understand your point that after a certain point, there is no relevance to more performance. Sure in the broad scheme of things, the general population will be happy with it. I don't believe xda members are representative of the general population though. i am in no way saying that it's a cripple, just would rather see an upgraded internal to justify a purchase, especially since it hasn't been long since i got my e4gt. I'm sure the s3 will be great in it's own right and very fast. You're right though, you can't play Netflix any faster than it already plays. I'm sure ics will make things smoother as well.

Anyone else disappointed? I was really hoping for dual-core A15.. guess I'll be waiting for the Nexus.

With that logic we should never buy a phone again since netflix still will be slow and everything is always great.

quad core @ 32 nm (aka 4412 quad) should do better than dual core a15. So far we have seen only few benchmarks of s15 which is compared with current lineups of quad cores @ 45 nm. A new design of quad core chip will always be better. Just read a few hours back about the leaked antutu score chart and the i9300 tops it beating transformer prime.

and also havent read anything special in battery life form htc one s which uses those krait cores

You know the crazy thing is how Apple-esque the security is. I don't really care if Samsung copies Apple or not, but it is getting a bit ridiculous for a major player like Samsung to rip everything out of the Apple playbook. Now they are running attack ads calling Apple users sheep, but have no qualms about shadowing everything Apple does. All the lawsuits over the Galaxy design and the Touchwiz interface are frivolous, but it's more than abundantly clear how much Samsung likes to copy. What next? I'm predicting they will do what HTC has done with the One series: sealed battery and no memory expansion, JUST like Apple. So what are the followers of sheep called? The sheep of sheep? Sheep in denial?

This secrecy is kind of annoying since I devour the slow drizzle of leaks and speculation. The Galaxy S II was announced months before release and a ton of videos and pictures and testing was peppered onto the internet the following months. I'm itching to know how the GS3 will look like and will they finally break that cheap plastic build and flimsy chrome accents. I'm not expecting any big breakthroughs in the processor/screen/camera department, although the camera might interest me as well. But there ain't a wink of a picture of video taken from it, anything credible anyway.

And yes I am a Galaxy S II owner, T-mobile variant, with the annoying and very visible lines and streaks. That's the one thing I hope they fix with the Hd amoled screens. The RGB kind that is.
