Honestly, I didn't before I commented. But I just did. That's not really a test. Neither the browser displaying something light like a Google search with no flash or java, or the PlayStore, which is also a very light app cause a problem on the One X either. Neither app uses enough memory when running to trigger a kill in memory manager. I'd like to see that again with a game in mid-play, CoPilot, YouTube in the middle of playing a 720P+ video, and/or the browser displaying an intensive site like the WSJ. The One X browser refreshes to the last page displayed whether it's recalled from memory or launched fresh which is both stupid and annoying. Otherwise I'd create a similar video. I have no idea what greyhulk did in his testing of the SGS3 to reach his conclusions but, to me, that video isn't a true test of the SGS3's multitasking capabilities. That’ll happen when it’s in people’s hands. Sorry for not viewing the video before posting my original comment. My bad.

I agree. My ranking of the SoCs/GPUs is as follows:
CPU - Exynos Quad, S4, Teg3
GPU - Mali400+, GeForce, Adreno
Battery Life - S4, Exynos Quad/Teg3 (Tie)
But in anything but benchmarks who cares? The OS and Apps can't use all the power available and the biggest perceivable difference is going to come down to how each manufacturer optimizes the s/w for the h/w. Samsung wins that contest but with all the compensating power available from the chips it's not going to be nearly as noticeable in everyday use as it would have been in a Sensation<>i1900 comparison.

Sigh. Are you going to run around coffee shops waving your phone at strangers saying "all bow to the king of Android?" To someone who dislikes either the design of the SGS3, SAMOLED, or TW, in their mind, the SGS3 could never be "top phone." Since anything other than benchmarks are subjective neither you nor they would be right or wrong.
Every time either the M-B E65 AMG, Audi RS6, or BMW 5 M get revised all the car magazines worldwide do a king of the hill road test. There's a technical and subjective review. Typically the BMW wins when heavier weighting is applied to the technical results. Should owners of the Audi and M-B immediately go to a BMW dealer and trade their cars in in shame? Aren’t all three pinnacles of the auto industry? Wouldn't you be happy to own any of the three? Since I have to live with the phone and use it every day, I'll decide which of the two is "top" and after doing so won't really care what others think as I'm not buying the phone to try and impress them.

You should contact the online media. They must have overlooked quite a bit in their testing of the One X. Especially GSMArena who had the nerve to do a comparison test of the One X against the SGS3 and find them both remarkably comparable. Clearly, based on your unbiased opinion, that test should have been against the much more comparable SGS2.
I came from i9100 that I had for eleven months. I assure you the One X isn't "comparable." It's a major improvement in every functional area.
