Wow, I think the S2 looks much more attractive than the S3. It's slick black bar phone and looks calm right before the storm kinda way.

Nope. Rumor is it's going to be a dual core. I doubt it's even going to be the same shape as the international version. Look at how many models and shapes there were for the original SGS.

Sorry no the dock is the one I bought for my S2, it fits the S3 just fine :)

It's £6.50 on eBay, branded by Zenis.

The design of the S3 certainly grows on you though. The White one is not to my taste at all so my full thoughts and comparison will be when the blue one arrives. I'm also getting the wireless HDMI dongle and the C-Pen and Wireless charging pad at some point.

I mentioned about the button and led notification bleeding around the front of the phone, here's a picture showing the extend in a dark room. Note: This only affects the white S3, also other brands/models that are white, not just Samsung handsets :)

Yeah I'm hoping a custom ROM dev will adjust the media profile for the video recorder like they did with the S2! I'm using Wanamlite ROM on my S2 and I think that might have a modded media profile built in.

I don't think the design of the S3 is as bad as some people make out, and the raw power of this phone is evidently immense. Thanks for the review!

Just got one myself. I've got to say that my favourite thing so far is the fact that it's so smooth at everything. Love it :)

Camera seems to be a big improvement over the S2 too.

Just picked one of these up this morning. Not really played much with it. I fluffed the setup and accidentally. Skipped the 50GB dropbox offer. So i've had to factory reset to get it back. I'm sure there was an easier way but i just loaded the phone so it didn't matter that much.

Going to spend the next few hours playing around with it.

Edit: Just read the dropbox email, i have to complete some steps to get the 50GB. Idiot. Should have read that before the reset haha
