Some of us (including me) have just finished a two year contract and are in need of a good phone. Why wait until late 2012 for the release if even 2012 when you can get an HTC flagship now? Since we already know the SGSIII won't be sporting a quad core and will most likely have the S4, it won't be worth the wait because the One X has the S4. Also, I'm just a big HTC fan in general and I'm not a big fan of Samsung's build quality. It's only being announced on May 3rd, not released.

Integrated LTE Chip?

I like sense better than touchwiz HAH....

Quadcore exynox from last years dual core exynos. A9 while the s4 is a modified A15. 1280x720 screens? SLCD2 > super amoled from many reviews.

Touchwiz is too cartoonish (vioalas) lol, but its going to be touchwiz 5 for the sgs3.

and why wait a few months when there is a good phone comming out? By the time its out in the states, the next nexus is out 2 months or so after the release of the galaxy s3

expertzero1 said it right, and OEMs all have a certain "look" just how the HOX is undeniably HTC design, the GSIII will resemble other Samsungs, and I prefer HTC design.

I hadn't considered that. May 3rd announce wouldn't result in a summer release? This will be my first smartphone, haven't been on contract for a few years. Sense 4.0 and car mode do look great in the One's.

We usually dont get the phones with an on-contract purchase price until several months after it comes out over-seas. My bet is closer to July/August for the stateside release of the S3. We also don't yet know which carriers will have it.

Plus, I have had several Sammy phones in a row - great phones, but sick of their slow software updates. My wife's HTC Sensation was on 2.3 almost a year before the Captivate. Giving HTC a go this time.

yeah htc will probably pump out faster updates. for example ice cream sandwhich for most of its devices 1-3 months earlier than samsung.

I hope I get it earlier though, but who doesn't lol. I can't stop thinking about this thing!! I probably shouldn't have gone and played with it today because it just makes me so much more impatient..
What dough did you save? Im also in California and I just pre-ordered mine and only paid $199 out the door. I didnt have to pay tax or an upgrade fee, just the 199. I also get it the 4th. Im not sure why you chose to wait 5 more days...
