    The design IMO looks a bit... peculiar/weird, I don't really know how to explain it, but it definitely has a design different from the S2. Don't get me wrong, I am not saying that the design is bad.

    What are your thoughts?

    Personally I'm sick of all the black slabs. I really like it...I dig the curves and the color offerings. I'm looking at getting either the Galaxy Note or the GSIII, if they end up on Verizon, and I like the look and feel of both.

    I am not a fan of the design and its not for me, some will overlook it because they may need more storage and a removable battery.

    For me, the One X is the better phone. It combines design and software.

    Im not a huge fan of the physical button, especially in this age. But over all I like the design. AT&T is..., (I know too much and am not compelled to speak about it on a public forum). So the ONE X is not an option for me. Considered going to the Rezound this month since my contract is up. After seeing this phone I really want it. I always enjoyed the presentation of the Galaxy S line. The Camera on my fascinate was flippin amazing, sad the rest of that phone sucked.

    Design is a plus to me. No complaints here. I like the design of HTC phones. Moto design is horrible.

    I am guessing the US versions will not have the physical button, much like previous versions of US Galaxy S phones.

    Just asking, what does Sense offer that TW and specifically SGSIII does not? Sounds like SGSIII has multiple elements exclusive to SGSIII including an apparent SIRI alternative.
    More storage
    Removable battery.
    Wireless charging
    Exclusive functions and software.

    Go ahead with the One X if you want, but I'll wait

    I'm most likely in the minority here, but I hope the US keeps the physical button. My phone doubles as toddler entertainment on car rides and while I like the capacitive buttons on my DINC2, my toddler finds a way to hit the home button every 30 seconds and I get a "Daddy, it turned off by itself.. HELP!". So, typically, we have to use the wife's iphone for that as she knows not to press the button.

    Would be win-win for me, except I have unlimited data, she doesn't. Pretty dumb reason to be excited over a button.... But, at least for me, is a damn good feature

    I hear ya! I have a 3 year old with the same habit...imagine that! I would be fine with the physical button too, it is not a big deal to me as far as design goes.

    You have a VERY valid point here. I have two kids, one three and the other three months. So you might have just caused me to completely rethink my position on the physical button....thanks a lot.....

    The lack of a side hardware camera shutter button in this design is what will probably stop me from getting this one. I had my fingers crossed

    i am actually hoping that the US version keeps the button. I dont know why, but ive always liked physical home buttons.

    I currently have an Epic Touch, which I love, and this new phone doesn't seem like all that big of an upgrade at all. Factor in that we probably won't be getting that beast quad-core Sammy processor and I'm left a little underwhelmed about the whole thing. HTC One X (EVO) is looking like a better choice IMO and that sucks because I had high hopes for this. Amoled HD display is pretty meh compared to the SLCD2 HD on the One X. I may also consider an iPhone for the first time ever, if the new one has a bigger screen.

    Hahaha! I can so relate to this. Sometimes I try to have Sprint TV baby sit my 2 year old when we're out and about, and since she INSISTS on holding the phone herself, it's inevitable that her thumb hits the Home or Back buttons. Which results in the phone being pushed in my face followed by the words "fix daddy!"

    I actually would really love to see a quick and easy way to disable the buttons for those situations. My ancient dishwasher has a button lock ... why doesn't my "smart"phone?

    Hopefully U.S carriers will change the design back to the 4 capacitive key layout or follow suit with HTC and have 3 soft keys.

    I've wanted this feature on my phones since my old iPod! I can lock the controls on my iPod and my son can't mess anything up...until he finally figured out how to slide the lock button. But then I just told him not to do that, and he, well...doesn't listen and does it anyway.

    Sadly, every purchase decision I make has to answer this question: how will my 3 year old use this?

    Seems a homely design. Not sure how I feel about it. Whereas the One X knocks your socks off, it's so gorgeous.

    I think I'm okay with the shape. But I don't really like that fake brushed aluminum look on the back of the black version. Should have been solid black or some other pattern.

    Design choice is purely subjective. I don't care for HTC hardware. I find it very blah. But that's what's great about having choices!
