    Or just install an alternative home screen like Nova, Go, Apex, etc.

    Stock Android OTAs are what I prefer. Having the option to run either a non-skinned Google OTA, or any of the various ROM & kernel choices is the best option to have in my opinion when it comes to Android.

    There's only so much you can do to differentiate design in these little devices... while maintaining some sort of ergonomic integrity (though some have ignored that!).

    What exactly android did they bring other than a android device.. It's a ics phone running some god awful UI that's it.. I really don't see where ur coming from.?? And obviously this site is pro gs3 cuz 1min after it was revealed all these visit our sister site gs3 forums post started showing up and no administration has said anything bad about it. . I never remember that happening before so tell me exactly what they did to revolutionize android cuz u already admitted there radio is garbage and didn't bring anything new or different!

    Hows the battery life on the one x? Not that it matters a whole since I'm on verizon.

    One X is bad ass. I tested the ATT model a week before preorders were allowed and the phone is sweet. The phone reminds me of the SGS2 in terms of size and it's weight. Sense 4.0 doesn't operate exactly the same as the previous versions. ICS and Sense work very well together and it seems like both applications are evident. You will see Sense working at one point then you can see ICS hence why reviews are stating Sense 4.0 is not as overbearing as previous versions.
    As for the battery life, during the timeframe I was messing with it, I didn't notice any drain for over an hour of just playing with it. Then a tiny percentage dropped. Like 2%.
    Overall I really liked One X. I want one but rumor states it's not on VZ. HTC via Twitter told me that only the Incredible will be going to VZ. Currently I'm rocking a TBolt and I have been waiting to see what HTC will do for VZ in reference to the HTC One series. I'm extremely disappointed in the Incredible 4G LTE named variant for VZ due to the changes of the physical appearance from Eur to US.
    Thas all, for me, aesthetically, the Incredible is ugly,

    I am also upset for the amt of memory and the integrated battery that the One X gets. 10Gb of usable external memory? My TBolt came with 32gb, and it's expandable. I can switch my battery to a bigger one while the One X lacks in this practicality.
    Sure my test on the One X didn't seem to lose any juice but it wasn't activated so no 4G speed tests, internet, YouTube, games etc. So I can't really speak too much on battery life but I'm still disappointed about the memory and the integrated battery.
    I still want the option to change this out.
    So overall, I love the One X aside from those 2 practical options. As for the new SGS3 which is rumored to come to VZ according to BGR's article, I want to def test that first before I render judgment but I have a feeling SGS3 will beat the One X in terms of what an Android user wants.

    For some, I can see this won't be an upgrade while others will view it as such but overall "on paper" the SGS3 beats the One X and the IPhone 4S.

    As for the people who are writing off a phone without physically testing the phone itself is just stupid.
    Can't make a comparison to the X and SGS3 unless you gave each a test run. Until you do, ALL of them are considered to "sound good on paper."

    Most people on these forums take that risk.. it's a main reason we buy these phones. And it's not hard to do, and if you "break" it, which I highly doubt you would, there's ways to restore it. If I get this its being rooted asap.

    Just read that there is a stylus for the s3, not sure if it is an included accessory. Unfortunately it seems to be a different design than the Note's pen with a much bigger rubber tip which would make it much clumsier. It's called the C Pen.

    The rubber ones I've used did not work very well. I'm very disappointed from the sound of it but I guess I'll have to wait and see.

    I bought one of these on a buy-one-get-one coupon and it is absolutely fantastic. It's worth $10. The tip is capacitive fabric, not rubber, and glides across the screen with no grabby stuttering like the rubbers one do sometimes.

    I hate the fat tips on most styluses now. Doesn't matter if they grab or not, they don't allow for any fine control. The least expensive one I could find with a tip that's useful for drawing is $40 or so, but I guess you get what you pay for.

    I agree, the one on the note looks to have a fine tip. I think the one for the S3 said 3mm.:mad:

    So I know the exynos is supposed to be good on battery life, but what about the snapdragon 4 that verizon will get?
