The screen is better on the HOX, end of! - stop chasing or looking for something that tells you differently - anyone can find a difference in opinion on the internet.
no pentile display in the world will beat an IPS Super LCD2 - This is fact, the sgs3 with its extremely over saturated colours (mainly green & yellow), it doesn't, & won't match up to the slcd2, all attendees of the London event have stated as much. (even on all android podcasts they also state the HOX screen to be better)
.... The fact your fishing for that one single lonely review that says differently to all the others, shows just how desperate you are for your fanboy phone to do well. LOL
The screen is the biggest & most important feature of any large smartphone, & HTC won this battle.
& early reviews of camera shots, comparisions if ya will, significantly show the One X camera to be much better in Various lighting conditions.
I noticed Samsung hardly mentioned the camera in London, they failed to mention its f2.6 sensor, it's no match for the HOX with its f2.0, which also has a dedicated image processing chip, instead they placed everyone's attention towards its features instead, the burst mode, the photos while recording etc - all sound too familiar to a previous device?
& design isn't subjective at all, that back cover on the sgs3 is disgusting & cheap, don't you have eyes?, the back looks cheaper than the original galaxy s, & the whole pebble phone design is soooo 10yrs ago.
But let's not skate over the fact that a whole bunch of the HOX has been copied & placed into the sgs3 - I never used to believe it when apple users said it, but damn - how much can Samsung copy from a phone, they even went as far as offering dropbox with the phone, just a larger amount lol - no wonder there was a delay in their announcement, shame on you.
Also - price is worse for the sgs3, the 16gb model is coming out at the same price the 32gb HOX arrived for sim-free customers.
The facts are there for all to see, yet some people on here are blinded to the fact purely for fanboyism reasons, - you have been infected with this bug, you are now a sheep too.
Personally, I ain't attached to nobody, & the screen, design & camera take up nearly all the phone, & HOX is better in all 3.
However, had Samsung produced what we all thought, non-pentile, 2gb ram, 12mp camera & 7mm (we all believed it when sammobile said it would be made with higher quality build, so-called quotes from CEO)- it would have destroyed its competition, but after seeing the announcement of the sgs3, I see absolutely no need to even get the phone now, sadly - disappointed.

I have replaced 3 HOX's
1.Dim light in the touch buttons.. the recent apps button practically had no light
2.Battery wasnt charging.. i was getting a "Couldnt charge the battery" error when i attched it to the power
3.Mic was f%^ked up.. had a high pitch static when i recorded videos..
Holy sh*t, guys seriously still comparing the screen? Everyone has their own personal preference, some may prefer the Saturated Amoled-Pentile screen, some may like the IPS LCD2 or whatever it is.
I like the Amoled screen for example, but I can guarantee someone will disagree and like the IPS LCD2. Same goes to the effing design, ITS ALL DOWN TO PERSONAL PREFERENCE, if you don't like the phone, just get out.
I'm sure many 'reviewers' was disappointed about the design, but they are not us, we all have different taste for goodness sake. Which is why it has over 9 million pre-orders. Of course some are going for it's hardware, but I can guarantee some are going for it's design.
Not stating any names *cough* chrisjcks *cough*, your post was totally your own opinion and bias.
Just ignore him. After I read 2.6 sensor in the S3 I just had to stop.
It seems like his in the rage moment that happened after the launch of the S3.
Get over it son! If you like the HOX better without even using the S3 yet, fine.
But your opinion is clearly outdated as it's based in the early "haven't even used it, hate it" reviews that came out.
I owned the hox for about two weeks. really wanted to like the phone but one thing I haven't seen mentioned much: the angle of the sides on the hox made it very uncomfortable to hold for more than a minute or two. the edges cut into your hand. I found it a deal breaker. back on my sgs2 til the sgs3 hits in US.

What's the point in all this? One man's meat is another man's poison. So what if the S3 is better? So what if the HOX is better? Hell, I am the one to use the phone, and how my needs will shape up my purchase, period. I don't buy a phone because of what other thinks, and they are NOT the one to use my phone!
Really reminds me of the bad old days of Canon vs Nikon!
Hardware wise the S3 is better than the HOX, but anyone claiming the screen is better than the Super LCD 2 is trying too hard to justify themselves.
The Super Amoled HD pentile display is plain ugly to look at when compared side by side with Super LCD 2, you notice just how stupidly oversaturated and artificial the colours are on Amoled, it honestly doesn't look like a 720p display. It's a good display don't get me wrong, but it's just not all that anymore.
Super LCD 2 is a beautifully clear sharp display, it look like a the iPhone 4/4s display but on a bigger screen with a higher resolution. Colours are alot more natural looking and pleasing to the eye and just has an incredible sense of true high resolution sharpness.
I'm no fanboy before anyone says I am, this is coming from a HTC one X and Galaxy Note owner (which uses the same screen as Galaxy S3 if I'm correct?)
