Ultimately when push came to shove the reason I went with the Galaxy S III is because Samsung stuck with its guns and kept a removable battery and a micro SD card slot.I don't like to give compromises, and the Galaxy S III doesn't compromise anything.
Software is a bit of a moot point for me, I'll root and unlock my phone asap, but there are a few extra things in Samsung s offerings that they should have gone without, things that Leave the Galaxy S III an island on its own. Personally I think most of these features would have been great if everything was an optional install.
Oh and design and build quality skeptics be damned, there's nothing cheap about this hardware. As soon as you get it in your hands you'll understand. Most comfortable hardware I've held in my hands since the HTC Sensation XL. You can call glossy plastic ugly, I'll agree, but it is still the nicest piece of glossy plastic I have ever held, plus its so thin that putting a case on it really adds next to no bulk.
