    They both come from Samsung. The international is unbranded of course so theres very little if any bloatware. Which would make the battery better. I guess it depends on Where u live. What companies you could go with for sim cards n coverage. Consider 4g also. The international has already gotten jellybean.in most countries and only 2 companies n America have. But with a company, u will have customer support if something goes wrong rather than have to deal with Samsung. There's a lot to weigh. I'm with US cellular. Some things I like n some I hate.

    Id go w the US, dual-core 2GB version, vs the international quad core 1GB version.

    Very few apps will take advantage of the quad core processor but the US version's 2GB makes a huge difference in keeping everything smooth and snappy.

    I have the US version and i absolutely love it. The GS3 is a beast of a phone!

    Get the gt-9305 mate. Aparently batt' life is ok (just keep LTE off unless you really need it for downloading files.
    The main thing is that no1 knows if 4cores or 2gb memory are gona be most in future so if id DEFO go for the gt-9305 if u want a galaxy but check out the DNA and the Nexus4 and the Htc One X+ (plus) first.
