    I, like many others am waiting for my Evo to break free from customs, then I see the threads for the GS3 and then I think ummmm, that seems like a nice phone,

    Any thoughts on which one is better?

    With the addition of pirated software like S-Voice and why not Smart Stay that are part of the Nature UXI Samsung software, why not just get the Evo? If you are looking at a straight comparison, it still depends on your preferences. Phone Arena did a video comparison versus the One X by HTC and still picked the SG3.

    From a benchmark standpoint, the sg3 will win a bit. But in the real world I doubt a gs3 running cm9 will be any different user experience as a evo4glte on cm9. The hardware on both is pretty damn good it seems.

    if htc really 'fixes' the multitasking 'problem' then it looks like it will be down to sense vs tw (unless you're going to flash roms anyways), the feel you like, and the screen you like. At least, that's my current line of thinking.

    "some" of the products passed inspection. Which ones? The One x?? The evo? It's not really all that clear on that.

    Why not wait for the SG3? I am sure that some company will "borrow" software from the Evo and make it possible to add to the SG3.

    The Htc has features that I like over the SG3, such as hdmi port, Enhanced Camera, Kickstand for watching movies. The SG3's quad core seems to be a battery drainer and its really not that much faster than the Snapdragon processor on benchmark tests!

    Well, sprint has worst network and doesn't even have 4g yet so its hard to even compare them, I'm just waiting till Verizon one x and s3 models are announced, then I will start comparing

    The port at the bottom of the phone can be connected to HDTV with a micro-HDMI cable.

    And the international gs3 was shown to almost double the battery life of the one x while watching videos and is a good 10% longer lasting in every other test.

    The camera on the S3 is better than the One X according to reviews.

    Yup, according to this comparison review by GSM Arena, the picture and video quality on the GSIII is much better than the OneX.

    (see pages 5-6)
    Samsung I9300 Galaxy S III vs. HTC One X: Alien vs. Predator - GSMArena.com

    This review almost made me cancel my pre-order for the EVO LTE, but I think I'm going to stick with it since I haven't heard any news yet on a GSIII release date for Sprint.

    I say GS3. Gave had two HOX's and although nice phones. I just prefer Samsung for ease of rooting and such. Dealing with bootloaders unlocking fastbooting boot img. Then flashing and such just flat out sucks to me

    I don't see no Hdmi port.

    the Evo lte micro usb is also a mhl port can be converted to hdmi, the gs3 has this to.

    In the battery test the video was double with gs3

    • Things like the default camera app, music and video are better on Touchwiz and in fact I don't think a 3rd party app will be needed.
    • Unlocked bootloader, easy root and great dev support is another plus.
    • I really like that in Samsung phones most of the UI is dark themed (probably due to AMOLED) rather than the blinding white in Sense.
    • Samsung phones have had the best browser, it has no lag like seen in Sense browsers.
    • No multitasking issues.
    • Menu button instead of the stupid menu bar in many apps. Long press on menu opens search - no such feature in Sense.
    • Great social integration, esp the face tagging, grouping photos by contacts recognized, automatic sharing.
    • I will find Smart Stay very useful when reading ebooks, though it won't work in the dark.
    • Sound Alive equalizer in the GS3 seems just as capable as Beats Audio and it will work in both speakerphone and earphones.
    • Custom vibration patterns


    IMO all the software features on the GS3 make it more desirable than the E4G / OneX. And I am an Evo owner so I'm not biased.

    The only things that could be considered better in the Evo / OneX is the non pentile LCD screen but from all accounts its not a big issue, and low light camera performance. I am perfectly happy giving up my kickstand and I don't care about the 'cheap plastic' which will make the phone more durable.

    It's mainly the camera and removable battery of the GSIII that's making me think twice about my EVO LTE pre-order.

    For someone that takes lots of pictures and videos on their phone, like myself, the camera quality is very important. By reading many reviews of the GSIII, One X, and EVO LTE in the past week, it's clear to me that the GSIII takes better pictures and videos. I know it doesn't do great in low-light condition, but most of the pictures and videos I take are usually in daylight, so it's it's not really an issue for me.

    Battery life is also important to me as I deal with a lot of emails and phone calls a day. Plus I do a lot of audio and video streaming. I'm not always near an outlet, so I go through the battery pretty quick than the average user. My past two phones had a removable battery which both I replaced with Seidio's 3000+ mAh extended battery. I know the OneX/EVOLTE are supposed to have good battery life, but if it can't handle my power usage, I have the Anker battery pack to help me out. I'm hoping Seidio will make some kind of battery case for the EVOLTE so I don't have to carry the external battery pack around all the time.

    There are two reasons why I'm probably going to stick with my pre-order of the EVOLTE.

    First, there hasn't been any official announcement yet to when the GSIII will go to Sprint, so I can be waiting for a while. My current OG EVO is getting really sluggish (I don't have much memory left), so I need a new phone right about now.

    And second (which is the biggest concern for me), Samsung's phones are known to have radio issues. I'm not sure if that's still an issue with the Galaxy Nexus or Galaxy SII line, but three of my friends who had the OG Epic 4G all complained about how long it took for the GPS to lock in and how they would have to toggle the Wi-Fi and 4G radio sometimes just to get them working. I use the GPS every day so I need that to be stable.

    I would cancel my EVOLTE pre-order if I find out Sprint is going to release the GSIII sometime in the next month and I hear that the radio signal issue is no longer an issue.

    I am in the same situation (except I haven't pre-ordered). Have you rooted your Evo? If not that might be an option since its at the end of its life anyway, and you'll get much better performance.

    I think it will be at least a 1-2 month delay till the GS3 is available here. I'm prepared to wait, then I'll read the final reviews and decide. It seems like a phone worth waiting for and since I'll be keeping it for 2 years I can wait a little more.

    I currently have a MT4G which has a dedicated camera button. While I like how the S3 looks including the software updates, if a device similar to EVO LTE were to become available on T-Mobile, then that would be my choice. IMO both devices seem very capable so it boils down to minute things such as S-Voice or a dedicated camera button.

    Been meaning to root my OG EVO, but never did get around to it. I'll definitely give it a shot this time around with the EVOLTE.
