I don't agree.

I don't want another Samsung phone. Just best known due to marketing and consecutive Nexus's.

I have a S2 now and I don't see myself getting S3. S4? unless it is revolutionary. Sorry, no sSheep here for sure. I like what I see on Nexus 4, but I will wait until more real user reviews before I commit.

I made the decision and it wasn't just based on LG's build quality. I think hakira explained myself pretty well. I love how on the S3 you can expand the storage another 64gb with a micosd. Plus, there is a replaceable battery!

I'm hoping Google will partner up with another manufacturer and make another amazing Nexus device.

I downloaded APEX launcher from the Play Store yesterday only to realize you need to root the device first... I had to restore my S3 in order to get rid of it. LOL

Anyone know a good case and screen protector for my S3? I know the SpeigenSGP stuff is pretty good and I've always loved Speck's cases, though they are a bit expensive. Any recommendations would be helpful.

lol it's funny seeing people trying desperately to not be a sheep; to not be a conformist —when in fact what they're doing still makes them a sheep.

Will S3 get Jelly Bean 4.2?
Well 4.1 hasn't even been released yet so don't count on seeing 4.2 anytime soon...

The i9300 got 4.1 a few weeks ago. The Snapdragon version cant be far behind.

After using the phone for about a week now, I have realized the battery sucks on this phone. 100% when I leave the house and 1 hour later, the battery will have drained to about 90%. And I didn't even use the phone! My brightness is on medium and I even disabled S Voice. Although, I still have a live wallpaper installed. What else could be draining my battery?

I got 6-7 hours, didn't have to disable S-Voice. It's the Live Wallpaper, also enable the Auto Brightness.
