    2GB of Ram
    TW 5.0
    Will probably have some of the largest development support
    A phone that is slowly growing as popular as the iPhone
    Hands down the best Android of 2012.

    Yeah, but as silly as it sounds the GSIII has made a name for itself, kind of like the iPhone in the beginning.

    The GSIII is still HOT.

    Im going to look at it first. I bought the HTC oneX but i did not like how it felt in my hand (too Big). The apps were not as polished as the apps on the iPhone. I have an iPhone 4s and an iPad so everything talks to each other. I had the Galaxy sII and loved it, thats why i might want to give the SIII a chance.

    I pre-ordered on Wednesday after watching numerous review and comparison videos. My 9810 is going in a drawer while I try a new OS platform. The hardware/software specs and the overall UX as well as customization potential sold me over the HOX.

    Its really nice to see an Android phone generate as much heat as the iPhone does for once. So sick of people going nuts each time a new iphone hits, even though its the same as its predecessor.

    I want the S III to kill the iPhone!!!3 That's reasons enough to buy it.

    I'm reading these and what I want to see is what are some of the cool features that you like about it makes you want this phone. I guess this would be more for people looking at other phones and they see something that this phone does that others don't do. Like for me its the cool feature of the stay awake. The cool motion stuff. Stuff like that. I've bought phones just for the screen before. Those are the things that is important to me.

    Well, the 2GB RAM is a biggie, for obvious reasons.

    The 8MP camera is the same MP as the GS2/SR, but the lense/sensor is better (BSI, etc.) and the camera software is improved. That's also a biggie for me (decent lower light 1080p, burst shot, taking shots while shooting video, etc.)

    Stay Awake I'll probably always have off, it's not hard to tap the screen or menu button to keep the screen on. Seems like a waste of battery life and it doesn't work in the dark, anyways...

    I like S Voice, if only for the basics but I like how it ties into the stock apps as well. I've never had issues with Vlingo accurately recognizing my voice so it should work fine for me.

    It has a bigger, replaceable battery compared to the One X. Ilike that hte camera doens't pertrude out the back as much as the one X. Better sound and CODEC support than HTC devices. HD sAMOLED screen. SD Card slot supporting up to 64GB.

    Oh, and it has a capacitive menu button. Is samsung the only OEM that sees how idiotic it is to expect users to have to press a menu soft-button all the way across to the top of the screen on a phone this big in so many applications. Yea, good call there...

    I dislike TouchWiz and their build materials, but I've watched a ton of reviews and this iteration doesn't seem as bad as TW 3/4. The jury is still out, but at this point that's something I'm willing to deal with, TBH. As long as there aren't any huge performance issues, I'll be a happy camper. I want to know when they're getting released to stores, though. I have to bring my current device back to swap it, and if I'm going to risk running over my 30 days I rather just kill the line, get a cheap feature phone and wait for it to be released.

    Because it's not my Palm Pre2. While I think WebOS was/is a good OS I have always liked Android. Just been stuck to a company plan that prevented me from getting the phone I want.

    4.8" HD Screen, 2GB of RAM, MicroSD slot, and ICS! Can't wait!
