    My opinion:

    If you are into roms, rooting, and running new software the nexus is the best device for you. If you are an avg consumer who can care less about rooting just want a feature rich phone the sgs3 will suit you. But think its cool to see them both on screen together because I know customers are debating what they should do right now with gs3 around the corner.

    Too bad about that injunction. The nexus will soon, if not already, disappear from the shelves. :'(

    I swear no one see the correlation between the injunction and android 4.1 update. And then Samsung doesn't seem to care because they wanna sell the G3.

    That's my 2 cents

    Yeah I highly doubt the nexus will be pulled off the shelves. Lawyers going to lawyer it out and about time they do pull it (if that is the case) their will be a nw nexus released and enough current galaxy nexus that users who do want to buy them can easily find them on ebay, swappa, or another source.

    Another excellent review by Aaron from Phonedog, always enjoy his reviews. Only thing is he likes to go over devices again, no matter how many times he's reviewed it (Nexus in this case), but I guess it's good for people who haven't seen other reviews.

    A good comparison between the two (for part 2 at least). The SG3 seems like a really nice device and I really want to check it out in person when it releases. That PIP blew my mind, JB needs that or a developer needs to work on it (which would be awesome). So many times I'm watching a video or showing one off and a text message interrupts it. And as he said, a battery percentage is far more helpful than a battery icon in stock.

    The gs3 would be incredible on jellybean if Samsung puts the detail into it they put in ice.

    Was a great review. He missed out on a few bigger things in JB, and also repeated himself a lot.

    We know the gs3 will get jb and if its like we think where it wont have anything preventing devs from deving on it you will see a jb rom soon. All i know is the specs on ics is easily keeping up with jb on the gnex. So if jb was on sg3 imagine hoe much more kick butter will bring it.
