    My gnex I love .
    My favorite phone.

    Have an upgrade and fell in love with the gs3.

    However my gnex has a fragile screen .

    Does the s3 also have a delicate screen?

    Any other pointers? Maybe a good thin case to get?

    Well it is not so much a "delicate" screen, but I suggest you read my thread entitled "spottergate" before purchasing the GS3.

    If you do not mind a bigger phone then wait for the galaxy not 2. It has a quad core processor two gigs of ram 5.5 inch screen and a S pen. It also ships with jellybean. It is a S3 on steroids

    5.5 is too big for me.

    The perfect size is that of a s3 .

    I don't see anything else in the rumors for a while.
    I only want a Samsung after having my gnex which I love.


    I am not sure if I should use my upgrade on a s3 and then get left behind...

    The S3 is about as future proof as they come with the 2gb of ram on board.

    The only thing that you will be missing out on is having a quad core device. Other than that the S3 should see updates for the next two years

    I'm going to guess within the next 3 weeks, as the international models have had it for about 2-3 weeks now.
