    overall the s3 is a better phone but it depends on your needs. The one s is a sexy phone and if you like smaller devices I would stay with it

    It depends on the user but most would probably go with the S3. I know I would.

    Bigger screen
    Better screen
    Better battery +1 for removable-ness
    Better internal storage +1 for card slot
    Better ram
    Better front facing camera
    Better rear camera (opinion)

    The S3 would be best IMO. If it was between the S3 and the One X, it'd be a lot closer because of the One X's ridiculously awesome screen but the One S is a smaller, pentile, Amoled display whereas the S3 Super Amoled HD display at 4.8", with 2 Gigs of RAM, proper multitasking instead of Sense 4's abortion, and an extremely large quantity of innovative features plus flagship status make the S3 the easy choice over the One S IMO.

    I would personally go with the Galaxy S III. The only thing that I could think of that might deter some people from the S III is the TouchWiz interface. However, if you don't mind it or don't care either way, the S III would be the way to go.

    Bigger screen, better display, double the RAM. What more could you ask for?

    I do agree 100% the phone also has additional features like smart stay, s beam, s voice, direct call, smart alert, and i for one do like touchwiz and the Nature UX is a plus.

    The only reason to get a One S over the S3 is if you want a smaller size phone. Otherwise, the S3 is much better. But the One S is still a great phone and more than capable for most people.

    Isn't the Super Amoled HD on S3 also pentile?

    I went ahead and bought the One S after I saw the S3 announcement because

    1) I like the One S design much better
    2) The processor in One S is more than capable enough for what I want to do.
    3) I think the camera on the One S is fantastic. Especially like ImageSense
    4) I like Sense much better than TouchWiz overall
    5) 4.8" would be way too big for me. I found One X to be too big, so I'm sure I'd feel the same way about the S3.

    So a month or so after the purchase and are you still liking the One S? i was in the EXACT same boat and bought the one s.... a month ago, and i still ABSOLUTELY LOVE mY PHONE. I find myself wanting an s3 only cause i am a phone junky and have had this for a month+ so... of course its time for a new one right? But seriously, really love this phone.

    Its funny to go back and read through this thread and all the opinions of people that probably never touched either phone... hard to forma n opinion based on just specs really.

    I owned the One S for a week and am now on the SGS3 so I figured I'd throw in my opinions. I came from a SGS2 (sprint epic 4g touch) but really loved the 4.3" form factor of the One S so decided to go with it. Love the hardware design and materials on the One S, definitely better than the galaxy. I've hated Sense in the past, but this new version is very nice - I prefer it to Touchwiz. Also, and I'm in the minority here, but I LOVE the dedicated task-switcher button on the One S. I don't necessarily love that they did a cover-flow style UI, but even despite that it's just so easy and quick to switch apps that I found myself not missing a "menu" button at all. I also prefer the capacitive home button on the One S compared to the clunky and stiff physical home button on the SGS3.

    But the thing that ultimately killed the One S for me was the pentile screen. After 24 hours with the phone I knew I'd end up returning it, it was just so grainy. I know screen quality is subjective to some degree, but I'm convinced that the people who claim the screen looks fine either need to have their eyes checked, or have come from a much older phone. Put it this way: the screen was a noticeable downgrade from the SGS2. I don't mind it not being HD resolution, but I just couldn't handle taking a step backwards on something as important as the screen. (and especially not for that price)

    Bottom line: had it been a non-pentile screen, I might not have switched to the SGS3. (but I do really like the SGS3) With the rumors that the One X is coming to TMobile, I realize I maybe should have waited before pulling the trigger at all.

    Not true absolutely completely false. I have the One X and the S3 and the screen on the One X is immediately better to anyone who isn't blind. That's not to say the S3 doesn't have a great screen.

    S voice is terrible and will be obsolete after both of these devices get the jelly bean update. And apex launcher gives any phone infinite screen scrolling if you so desire. And touchwiz sucks. Obviously that's my opinion, but after using both phones I really hate touchwiz. I don't particularly like sense either (I've already flashed both phones) but touchwiz really, really sucks. Looks like it was patched together by a 5 year old.

    Exactly, and the HOX needs third party software to do what the GS3 does stock. I am sure that the five year old that developed TouchWiz is pretty smart and bit more mature in his opinions. Using "sucks", and how old are you? You are entitled to your opinion above which sounds like GS3 envy.

    Easy tiger, you're arguing the wrong point. Nowhere did I compare the quality of the One X to the S3. What I said was that you can't tell the S3's screen is pentile and I stand by that. (well, not without a magnifying glass)

    When you look at the One S you can immediately tell that something is wrong - it's grainy and looks lower resolution than it really is. I don't have that same reaction when looking at the S3.

    My bad. You're right, I can't tell it has pen tile. I don't have a one s, I have a One X, but I though it had the same screen. My One X looks far clearer and crisper than my S3. I'm actually kind of butthurt about, I was hoping the S3 wouldn't have a noticeably worse screen.
