There are small but somewhat major differences between the international version and the US version. Has anyone found any reviews of the US version yet?

Absolutely! It's great until the EVO decides to shut it down in favor of Sense bloat. Phenomenal! :p :D

In looks? Perhaps.
Previous versions? Maybe.
But this time out, it doesn't look so great. I really wanted to love my EVO, and hardware wise I did. But I couldn't even have the alarm clock going overnight because it would get shut down. Some nights it would happen, others not, no matter the alarm app I was using. It's great the it's better at gaming (one review), but I'm gonna need more than that... Hopefully the S3 is it. :D

I like the way he says" I'm not a fan of Android's interface, which still feels dated and clumsy compared with Apple's iOS and Windows Phone." IOS hasn't really changed at all over the years as far as I know so Apple must have REALLY been ahead of its time when the iPhone first came out. :p

I once read in the New York Times that IOS took a crap on the sidewalk, and it turned into sprinkles and candy canes.

Not 100% clear to me if this was a US version. Could have been International version running on T-Mobile?

"It's basically a 4.8-inch diagonal screen, behind which Samsung stuffed a 1.5 gigahertz, dual-core processor, an 8 megapixel camera and a big battery."

says dual core in the article, unless this dude is misinformed...

The US version does have a dual core processor. Quad core doesn't work with LTE. What exactly are you questioning?

Have seen a few statements with reviews of the international version where issues are made about how low the phone speaker volume is when up to the ear, though not so much with the speaker phone. Over in XDA some of those using this version also seem unimpressed with the video sound quality. Will be curious to see if the phone speakers here in the US have the same low volume.

Found this one on YouTube. SGS III for Bell with dual-core S4. Guy says it scores about 5,000 on Quadrant.

Does the quad-core version score significantly higher?

The Exynos version is all over the place with Quadrant. It always scores over 5000, but I have seen it, depending on the review, as low as just over 5000 to as high as 5600. He showed GTA 3 and it ran flawlessly and the UI looked just as smooth as on the international model.
