PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Many people think that all Androids are equal and it's a race to the bottom where the cheapest vendor wins. This could not be farther from the truth. For me, it all began half-a-year ago, when I bought the Samsung Galaxy S III and was absolutely stunned by it, then exploring and comparing it with other Androids. Now that Google has fired a shot across the bow with its low pricing for the unlocked Nexus 4, where does that leave Samsung and its flagship handset?

Not only are there an awful lot of inaccuracies (as has already been pointed out), not only is it ridiculous to make a comparison between S3 and "Android 4.0" (when S3 is already on 4.1, the Galaxy Nexus was always 4.1 and has been upgraded to 4.2, and the Nexus 4 was always 4.2)...

But in the MicroSD comparison (which, yes, is an advantage as the Nexus doesn't have one), it's stated that he would *still* give a small advantage to the S3 even if the Nexus had a MicroSD slot. WTF? That would make them *identical*.

Yes, there are things that separate the S3 from a Nexus, and for some people they may warrant purchasing an S3. We all have different requirements. But this article smacks of desperation.

fanboi logic: Oh they're identical? That means mine's better!

Galaxy nexus was in fact on 4.0 when it was released, similar to the S3.
