    The battery in the s3 will be roughly 25% bigger than an average smartphone battery. And with the newer technology will be getting better battery life than an older phone already.

    @kparks: Since this has been a fun and friendly debate I have a question for ya. If the RAZR HD was available now or confirmed for the very near future with it's rumored specs of....

    Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz
    Qualcomm Adreno 225 GPU
    4.6-inch Super AMOLED HD display 720p
    3300 mAh battery
    13MP camera
    ICS

    What would be your recommendation then???

Lmao or the razr hd but I don't think eather one is coming too soon I got the s3 preordered and I don't really want it I only use htc phones but if it works good I'll keep it if I don't like it it's going to ebay.

    The S3's battery life will be a step above the Gnex, but still nothing compared to the Maxx. Anybody intending to get an S3, don't expect a significant jump in battery life over the Gnex. A small jump is likely, but nothing earth shattering.

    The S4 chip will help... but as with the Gnex, that screen will kill the battery. The S4 chip is really the wildcard b/c we don't have much evidence yet as to how much it's going to help with things like LTE radio efficiency. I'm now on T-Mobile with an HTC One S (has the S4 chipset). I get 24+ hours, easy. However, I'm not streaming vids or data all day, there's no LTE on Tmo yet, and the screen on the One S (as opposed to the One X) is samoled qHD, not 720p. I do use it quite often, though, it doesn't just sit idle all day.

    The Gnex reception and battery life while "idling" was greatly improved after 4.0.4, so hopefully Samsung gets it right with the new chipset that should handle things like 3G/4G handoff better, or more efficiently.

    My plan exactly. Except I am getting two. One two flip for sure and one to possibly try out for a limited run and then sell if I don't like. My agenda is locking in unlimited and pocketing some money for the RHD.

    It does, cause it still has that signature home button the line is known for.
