    Its so........ beautiful. I love the brushed metal.
    O man, I love Samsung designs.

    If this comes to Verizon, it may be replacing my Galaxy Nexus that I love so much.

    For me, its dependant on whether or not the US will get the Exynos processor. If not, I may just get the Journal. Hopefully that will be said when it coming to Verizon today too.

    Why did they stick the GB notification bar on the press shots? Does it look awful!

    Besides that, I really like that direct call feature.

    the memory space is crazy wish my Gnex had an sd slot, very tempting.
    if it gets 4g and keeps the processor size i just might pick it up.

    Me likey mucho..plus the memory is expandable to 64gb and also DropBox giving 50gb of space upon purchase.
    Euro version will be available end of May. So....maybe June or July for it to arrive in US.

    I like the screen size. The nexus wasn't quite as big as I hoped in real life from the specs.

    4.8 might be good. I just hope it's curved still

    I'm on Verizon as well and was hoping the Journal would be announced alongside this bad boy. I'm still on my OG droid so the S3 would be a massive upgrade for me but my soul yearns for the Journal... keeping my fingers crossed.

    Compared to all other devices...looks like they went two steps back....definitely not even on the same level as the one x

    I agree in comparison to the X. IMO, the hardware looks better then the rest of the phones.

    if it comes to verizon AND keeps the exynos I'm definitely going to break up with my bionic (it's not you it's me) it's incredibly sexy

    I like the screen size but the HTC Onex is by far a more attractive looking phone -1 Samsung

    I agree but since the One X only has integrated memory while the SGS3 has expandable memory, SGS3 will gain more converts.
