Galaxy S3 or the Next Nexus?

Posted Apr 27, 2012 at 12:46 am in Threads > Smartphones & Tablets

I am up for a contract renewal (and have been for a while) but I am looking to get the GS3 when it comes out. My main issue, I guess, is do you think the GS3 will have a large enough userbase (for the AT&T version) to have full ROM support or will the next Nexus be the best bet? Thanks to all! :-)

    Ive heard that this time around, samsung wants to keep all SGS models the same so if thats true then it will have a TON of rom support, if not id say it would still be significantly popular and have plenty of rom choices.

    Usually Google release their Nexus device around November December, a long wait. In the past the Samsung Galaxy SII has proved to be a more than capable phone and a match for the Galaxy Nexus.

    I have always preferred the Nexus phones only missing out on the Nexus S as I did not feel it offered too much over my Desire HD.

    I am keen like the rest of us to see what the SIII brings to the table, but unless stupendous I will wait for the next Nexus Device(or two ie.Tablet and phone if the other rumours are true!)

    SgsIII for sure, I don’t like the fact that the nexus doesn’t have a removable sd card

    I am going for the GS3. The only reason to wait for the nexus is if your not going to root your GS3.

    I think I’ll wait for the next Nexus, unless Samsung pledges to REALLY unlock this one. I can’t go back to non-fastboot OEM unlocking, it’s just so convenient.

    You’ll have your answer on May 3. If the SG3 ships with the S4 proc then I would just go with the EVO 4G LTE. I mean, why wait until Sprint starts shipping it in August or later when you could get the EVO 4g LTE in May?

    That said, if I were you, I’d hold onto the SG2 until early next year and get a quad-core Tegra 4 based on ARM’s A15 architecture. May even be able to get a phone with Jellybean at that time.
