    I was planning on getting an S2 but I guess I'll wait.

    The Galaxy S II battery turned out to be a huge bummer. After about 80 charges the battery capacity dipped significantly for me.

    I seriously hope they will fix it in GS3.

    The Galaxy S II was already more powerful actually (in terms of specs).

    Finally, yes yes yes, can't wait. Heard soooooooooo much rumours about it, quite amazing stuff it's going to be. Tweakers.net is also a very reputable source, I'm sure this is true.

    I'm planning on getting a new phone for my birthday around July, and I had been thinking of either getting that new Nokie with windows mobile or the successor of the iphone4S when it comes out.. If that one seems cool enough I might get it instead. =3

    I have the Galaxy S. Typing on it now. My friend has iphone 4s and my galaxy is LOADS quicker than the iphone. My missus has the galaxy S2 and the screen is friggin huge and it is slightly thinner than mine but my battery lasts nearly 2 hours longer on highest settings while playing angry birds. The S2 is a little quicker than the galaxy S at everything.
    My contract runs out next year so looks like I will be getting the S4! lol

    They've released no details about the new phone yet? That's either a really good sign, or a really bad sign.

    Let's hope for the former.

    I'd take a Nexus any day. You are almost guaranteed updates for the next two years. Thats a moot point if you root it and use custom ROMS though.

    Very wise words mate. The Nexus is a brilliant phone. I'd get the Nexus over the GS3 any day.

    Nexus + XDA ROM = BOSS!!!!!

    I grabbed a GS2 because of the better specs and the up-gradable storage, I guess the camera is a plus, too.

    That's exactly why the Nexus S JUST got ICS, and its still not available on all phones. And the Nexus One didn't even get ICS. I bet that the update for Jellybean is going to get so delayed for the Galaxy Nexus as well. American Galaxy Nexus phones are still on 4.0.2.

    updates depend on the ICS variant on the phone...as long as a galaxy nexus is running the YAKJU variant, it will receive the ota updates from google..the 4.0.4 (YAKJU) update is also available to download and flash yourself direct from google which should then be able to receive future updates ota..

    man these new smartphones are too huge to fit in a pocket comfortably e.g. galaxy s series and htc one series. Apple gets many things wrong but at least it knows not to make the iphone too big

    I'm sure you would prefere to be in the iPhone 7S crowd by then.

    There was a time when a new phone was smaller and smaller,now has a bigger screen they are so big right now.
    Imagine what it will be like in 5 years people will use 20" phones they will carry on their backs.
