    As I replied in another thread to a post of yours discussing complaints about the S3, most people come to forums when they have a problem. So with any device, you'll see far more negative posts than positive posts. For any negative post about the S3, I'll find an corresponding negative post about the Rezound, Galaxy Nexus, RAZR, Bionic, or any other device. It's just the nature of forums. Most people don't come to post when everything is working great. Having owned pretty much every major Android device on Verizon (and several non-major ones), I can honestly say the S3 is one of the most problem-free devices I've owned. That's not to say that it's perfect, because no device is, but most of the problems you're reading about are the exceptions to the rule. If they weren't, I think the issues would be well known to everyone and extremely widespread given the millions upon millions of S3's that have been sold around the world.

    As for the pros and cons of the S3 versus the Rezound, having owned the Rezound, this is how I see them breaking down:

    Pros
    - A faster, more efficient processor
    - 2GB of RAM (not only is the extra memory noticeable in everyday use, but it also makes the device more future-proof)
    - Better battery life
    - NFC
    - Larger screen (half an inch)
    - Thinner and lighter
    - Touch Whiz has some great built-in features

    Cons
    - Reception isn't quite as good, although it's much better than any other Samsung Android device that's been on Verizon, and it drops signal less than the Rezound.
    - Touch Whiz - it's a little cartoonish for my taste (but then again, so is Sense), but that can easily be taken care of with a custom launcher.

    Both have great cameras (I'd give a slight edge to the camera on the S3, but it's extremely slight), 720p displays (between the two, I tend to prefer the Super AMOLED of the S3 myself, but that's personal preference), and both support SVDO (simultaneous voice and data over 3G). The S3 bests the Rezound in pretty much everything, but I'd say it's not a huge step up. Unless you've damaged your Rezound and have to get a new phone, or unless you're like me and constantly change devices every couple of months, you're probably not going to see a massive difference in switching from the Rezound to the S3. At this point, unless your Rezound has bitten the dust or is full of problems, I'd wait and see what's coming around the corner with the rumored 1080p HTC, the possibility of the Galaxy Note 2, and information on the next Nexus (or the multiple Nexus devices).

    The s3 is far more expensive though. Do you think the price difference is where it should be? Because like others said, there isnt a far distance between the two phones when it comes to software.

    Well, you're talking about a phone that's almost a year old versus a phone that's only two months old. There's naturally going to be a price difference in on-contract price as well as with resale value (the full retail prices are similar). And it's the hardware, not so much the software, that will have a greater impact on that. The S3 offers a step up in nearly every aspect on hardware, along with the probability of a longer time frame of official software support (since it's newer) from this point onward.

    And for the speaker thing. My s3 blows my old MAXX away.

    I'll definitely agree with that. The speaker on the S3 is very good, and definitely sounds better than the speaker on my MAXX did.

    The only thing I truly miss from my thunderbolt is the clock from sense. The integration of the weather was great (who doesn't love when the windshield wipers come on?!) and most importantly the access to the clock. The alarm clock on the s3 blows and mine works sparingly at best. I set the alarm from the stock app, alarm klock and the I set it on my galaxy tab 10.1 also. And the ring selection for alarms is terrible. I'm not gonna wake up to some soothing sounds, I need a ring.

    That's why I haven't done one yet. My list above is in response to someone who asked for the pros and cons of the S3 versus the Rezound.
