I have a feeling they already made choice before even the first test, not because of they didn't review in favor of the s3, but because alot of their results are compared in a negative way towards to One x, running a whole bunch of retarded (in my eyes) benchmarks which are limited by 2 cores, or by the screen refreshing rate for example. Also they claim the battery life isn't that good, but I haven't seen a graph showing it or their testing method for that matter. I was also amazed by their conclusion, I read the whole thing and was very positive, to find out in their conclusion they don't recommend it.. Strange.

They also compared it majorly to the One X US version, which has the S4 SoC. Won't the S3 get the same in the US?

I agree. I tested intensivly the S3 and I know what I am saying. Engadget is known for taking sides

The Verge has the best review to date. period. I do not even mind reading Engadget, they are always full of ****.



To be honest I will get myself HTC for the looks and added resell value. But i'm shure GS3 will be mainstream as GS1, even with it's (potential)flaws.

Good Stuff

Unequaled performance
Excellent camera
Functionally sound design
Android tweaks have mostly been for the better

Bad Stuff

Aesthetically challenged
TouchWiz takes getting used to
S Voice is no less of a gimmick than Siri
Samsung has a history of failing to update phones on time


Lol, Verge had hard time to find the bad things. A pretty ****ty review as usual from Verge
