Re: Galaxy S3

It won't take long and some devs will have a AOSP ROM for it I'm sure.

The US versions are gimped (less memory), IIRC, or maybe I'm confusing the S3 with the HTC One-series.

Also, needs penta-band HSPA support.

They come with a full 2 gig of memory, but only a dual core 1.5 processor.

I think the T-Mobile version will be quad core.

The Intl Ver has a Quad core 1.4ghz with 1 Gig of RAM, the US Version has Dual Core 1.5 with 2gigs of ram.

I have the Intl Version, and love it, But ill love it even more when they get CM9 on it.

I wouldn't be so sure, until:

a) we know for sure Verizon hasn't forced Samsung to lock it down
b) devs pick up the VZW device and are willing to reverse engineer the RIL for CDMA/LTE
c) Samsung releases the source (afaik, they still have not)

I'd probably switch full-price if it does get AOKP and the radio performs better than the Nexus (I imagine it will, Qualcomm radios are way better than the VIA/Samsung trash in the Nexus) and if the screen doesn't have the same crappy video playback issues the Nexus and Note have (big if there).

Looks like CM9 Nightlys are available for the Galaxy S III I9300 (Intl)

This is a good day.

They just started cm9 nightlies for my device (t-mo gs2 t989) I'm excited. I love me some cm9 goodness.

Wish I knew if the VZW SGSIII would get CM9/AOKP...if I knew it would, I'd ditch the Nexus for it in a heart beat.

I'd be shocked if it didn't. What will certainly be one of the most popular Android phones on the most popular network should get AOKP roms pretty soon.

There are already nightlies for CM9. But I'm talking the verizon sgsIII. The chances are better than some random HTC device on VZW (*cough* Rezound *cough*), but there is still RIL/CDMA/LTE to deal with, and that's all assuming VZW doesn't decide to be assholes and force them to lock the boot loader

even if the boot loader is locked it won't last forever. some dev will eventually crack it.

2GB memory on the US version. The One is a quad core overseas but not here.

I don't know about the One

But the International S3 is a Quad Core / 1GB memory.
The LTE variant (US) SGS3 is a Dual Core / 2GB memory.

My stock SGS3 with my apps is 60-70% ram at any given time. I guess mem management would keep it manageable even if it was only 1 Gig.

S4 > tegra 3

If it hadn't been the lack of an SD card slot and a replaceable battery, that was my first choice.

I think One X is the best because it's LCD plus the other typical features but the battery and SD card is a negative...

Because of the screen? It's the same resolution as the S3. The other typical features which the S3 has as well....
