Negative. Dropped my phone in the bathroom and it clipped the goddamn toilet bowl on the way down. It's dead and i need a new phone ASAP

Doesn't the S3 have one mono speaker? That's a giant turn off right there. Then again, I do like that you can add a memory card

S3 is probably the best phone out there atm although One X is nearly as good too.

ICS+ doesn't support flash anymore, i don't think Apple does either but there are many ways of enabling it with custom rom

And Adobe has stopped updating flash, everyone is moving to HTML5

In case anyone was wondering, i got the One X Very Happy

32gb
2000 minutes
5000 texts
unlimited data <------this was the deal sealer
free handset

£34 a month with 3G

T-mobile wanted £41 for the same deal WITHOUT unlimted data AND £50 for the handset :facepalm:

I simply chuckled at the sales advisor and walked out

Me too, but it was mentioned earlier that HTML5 will take over so I guess it will be able to watch videos..

I'm playing around with a galaxy note 2 ATM and it can play those flash videos that the S3 couldn't.. Dafuq is going on? Why not make them do the same shit?

Your Note 2 probably has ICS (4.0), Android and Adobe stopped supporting starting Jelly Bean (4.1)

Sony has a new flagship coming out in March and it's awesome. 5 Inch screen with a whopping 1920x1080 pixels. Also it looks stunning, seems to be made out of premium materials (eat that Samsung and your plastic crap) as can be expected from Sony and... it is dirt- and waterproof. It can go for a 30 minute dive (no deeper than 1 meter) and everything will be A-OK. 1,5 GHz Quadcore processor, 13 megapixel camera with HDR pics and video. I realize this looks like I work for Sony but this thing has got me hyped as *bleep*.

Also, how can there be a time limit on its water proofing? What are the dynamics behind that? Are there an army of ants inside it that can only hold the rubber sealing in place for 30 minutes before their arms get tired and fatigue?

I'm so confused Sad

Haha not sure about titanium, but there is rumoured to be Dragontrail glass on the front and back (which is supposedly quite a bit stronger than Gorilla glass) and the sides appear to be made out of some sort of metal. If you've held and used a Sony Xperia phone before you know what it feels and looks like. I've got a Xperia P right now and I love that build quality. One of the outstanding features along with the Sony skin for Android. Sony was always behind with the insides of the phone, mainly with regards to shear power, but it appears they are trying to set that straight with this device.

With regards to the time limit I am unsure. I'm no physicist but I guess it could have to do with a pressure build-up thing (the microphones of the phone are still exposed obviously as they can't cover those up with flaps). Anyway, it's not like you're ever going to keep it underwater for long periods of time but it's nice that when someone drops a pint over your phone you can just go and wash the beer off. Or if you wan't to check out some youtube video's or do some whatsapping in the tub, you don't have to worry about dropping your phone in there.

im just guessing here but it could be due to corrosion if it is really going to be made from metal

or

it has a small exposed area that allows a slow leakage.

I hate Samsung's touchwiz, but the original Android UI on the Nexus phones is just top notch. I own a Nexus, and it's much more fun to use than an iPhone.
