2100Mha battery so maybe not removeable, but it has microSD card so thats good, and coming out with 64Gb version as well.

Battery is removable. Wireless charging is also good.

Completely underwhelmed.  Engadget preview here http://www.engadget.com/2012/05/03/samsung-galaxy-s-iii-preview-hands-on/

Pentile display on the S3.  I think I'm going One X.

It had more of a "Software" Enhancement rather than much of a "Hardware" Enhancement.

underwhelmed going to HTC wow thats a big call given the HTC has only a bigger processor in it and not much else. Well unless you count sealed battery no SD slot and smaller screen as beiung a plus.

I'm ok with the S3 didn't have a clue what it was going to be like but can't please everyone.

Happy with my Note, no desire to upgrade given the minimal impact of a quad core over dual core at the moment.

May look at teh note myself but will see what happens to the prices after teh S3 arrives. Still keen on the S3 but agree the dual and quad core differance would be hardly be noticeable to most of us.

Time will tell and once they arive I might get the urge to keep up with the Jones's

One X Screen is only .1 of an inch smaller and is higher quality than the S3. I never store more than a few gigs worth of music on my phone so storage isn't an issue.  As for software I prefer Sense over Touchwiz.  Hardware-wise, looking at the pics I prefer the look of the One X over the S3.

I was hoping the S3 would be something to blow away the competition but the S3 feels to me like a similar increment as the iphone4 was to the 4s.

I'm sure the S3 will be a marvellous phone but if it's much of muchness for hardware then I prefer to get a One X now than wait for a potentially more expensive S3.

Anyway back on topic, I don't want to start a flame war.  I'll let the soon to be S3 owners enjoy their kit :-)

I think the One X is a very reasonable choice for some if they can live with the storage capacity, but specs-wise it loses in lots of areas Vs the S3 (whereas the only area the S3 loses on is the screen, I don't think the S3 pentile screen will topple the SLCD-2 of the One X).

The big things for me are Removable storage, larger battery, wireless charging, Wolfson DAC and Exynos SoC (Which is a lot more powerful than Tegra 3)

Oh damn, I have to say, I'm completely underwhelmed also

If NZ isn't part of the global launch on the 29th, then I think I'll be getting another One X

Don't do it man! Wolfson + micro SD + removable larger capacity battery + GLONASS + better GPU. The announcement may have underwhelmed a little with how silly expectations got but it is clearly a better phone than the One X overall.
