    Hopefully so, TouchWiz is just kind of ugly in my opinion it seems old school compared to the futuristic stock Android and radiant Sense. It fits the Note though. If I went with the E4GLTE I'd be ok with Sense 4 but going with the GS3 I'd have to root for vanilla ICS.

    Never going to happen. That is way more involved than a simple scene change like in Sense.

    The most that might happen is they have the option to change themes to look more like AOSP than Touchwiz, but it won't get rid of it.

    I'm not feeling much love for the S3 so far, it does not seem that much of a big stride forward when you consider over a year as gone since S2 was announced.
    Maybe I'll change my mind next week when I see the design & real thing in action

    Just a quick question, since I'm new to androids and hopefully getting my first one soon, TouchWiz is the launcher used on Samsung phones? Why do people not like it and does any know what the new one might look like?

    T-wiz and other OEM skin overlays (like Sense on HTC phones) can be considered just as horrid as the bloatware U.S. carriers put on a device when they sell it to you. Like bloatware, these skins do nothing but take up space, use processing power, need to be reformatted with OS upgrades, and take away from elegant and quick feel of stock Android. From the leaks thus far T-wiz looks about the same as it does on current GS II models, but who knows what Samsung will reveal on the 3rd. Moreover, rumor has it that the GS III will come with two skins available at launch: the new iteration of TouchWiz, and the stock ICS launcher. But even if that rumor turns out to be false, you can always download a 3rd party launcher, such as, NOVA or Apex.

    Oh ok I see. I'm kind of worried about rooting since this will be my first android phone but maybe after a couple of months I'll eventually want to learn how to root it and load those other launchers.

    You don't need to root to run a different launcher. Just download from the androind market (aka play store).

    Wow people are so quick to judge, until May 3rd rolls around and the phone is officially unveiled we know absolutely NOTHING about its specs other than it has a quad core Exynos CPU on board. All of these mock ups, sketches and pics are nothing more than rumors. I have faith in Samsung that the Galaxy S III will be a great phone.
    As for Touchwiz, ive used several Android devices over the past 2 years and as far as custom UIs go, I have to say I think Touchwiz is the best out of all of them. That being said is it perfect, NO it is not but compared to Motorola's UI which I find is extremely confusing and HTC Sense (with the exception of Ver.4) is laggy that Touchwiz is the better of them.

    Isn't the thinking the NA version of the GS3 will not be able to use the quad core Exynos due to lack of LTE on that SoC? A lot of people seem to supect a Snapdragon CPU will be used in the NA GS3, presumably the S4.

    It's safe to assume that this will be the case, but we won't know for sure until May 3rd. HTC did it for the very same reason, though.

    Yes, that's the consensus so far. It came from an unnamed samsung executive (for all we know the janitor) and was reported by the Korea times. Other executives said, also according to the Korea times, that the two new exynos chips have their own lte onboard, which I suppose is true, but they forgot to mention it doesn't include the frequencies US carriers use. One executive said that the gs3 might be launched in April, he was obviously wrong. So for all intends and purposes, besides the exynos 4412 being in the international version of the gs3, we really know nothing yet. Just a few more days.... And I hope we will hear about the US versions as well, we should, if this is really going to be a global launch.

    Well nothing is set in stone until Thursday, it is though very likely the US versions of the Galaxy S III will have a dual core processor because the LTE bands US carriers use are different from the ones used overseas.
