So after using the nexus four for a couple weeks..I can say its better then the s3...so much more smooth and buttery.

Much better battery life too.

The only thing I miss from the s3 is the camera quality.

Yes try to convince yourself.

How is the puked screen calibration?
How's the ROMs? all the roms look the same.
The crappy speaker.
The processor throttling

Puked screen calibration? Sorry I don't have that issue because molesarecoming did an awesome job of fixing that.

Pa 3.0 ROM is awesome.so fast and smooth never lags etc.

Crappy speaker ? Mines just fine .

Throttling processor ? Huh

Not to mention easily getting five hours screen on time. I love it.

My s3 is just collecting dust lol I need to sell it before the s4 comes out and its value goes down.

Trast me keep the s3 just in case u get bored form the N4. I was in the same situation. I used the nexus 4 for a week trying all the ROMs, and the moles color settings (we which didn't even help lost the brightness), then picked up the s3 and it felt so good in the hands. The n4 is heavy when you use it for 2-3 hours. So GS3 is so much more with all the TW and Aosp ROMs its much better. One week I use TW other Aosp AOKP cyanogenmod PA and much more. Just keep the s3 for a month.

Uh a lot of thw roms here are the same. Choices arw wother tw based roms or aosp or clones with concoctions of aosp, cm, aokp, pa. Id bet there are fewer bugs running a phone that came with aosp than a phone that didnt? Bit thayb is jist my opinion.

Lack of uSD on the N4 was what killed it for me.

Lol the N4.... Heavy....? Seems light to me. You've gotta be crazy.

Its apple and oranges guys, like what you like and stop trying to convince other people why you think x is better than y.

S3 is great and offers some cool stuff with TW.

N4 is great with superior speed and quick updates.

No need for an argument.
