Not really, the S2 was one of the most resistant . ( if we exclude ofc the ones made for be resistant in extreme condition ) try find on Youtube, S2 vs 4s drop test ( just for the fun to see the 4s glass break so easy )

Not the best one, but lets go. ( advance at 50sec drop 3 )

you need to look at more than just one set of benchmarks.

http://www.benchtec.co.uk/forums/thr...view-It-s-Fast

this shows all the benches.

you also need to keep in mind that in the benchmarks using the galaxy s3's screen, its frame capped at 60fps. if you want to see the full performance, you need to run offscreen benchmarks. in some of the offscreen benchmarks where the frame limiter is disabled, the s3's overclocked mali400 ends up being over 50% faster than the tegra 3.

I just put the original article they have taking this...
http://www.anandtech.com/show/5810/s...rmance-preview

What i like with Anandtech is they test Egypt and other Opengl test with offscreen enabled ( like that the v-sync at 60hz is eliminate ), i see so much review where they dont do it...

The CPU performance look really good.. gpu too. The video i have seen of browsing internet ( desktop mode for the sites ofc ) are impressive

the only thing that might annoy you guys over in the US is that samsung have not announced which chip the US LTE devices will use. the s3 uses the exynos 4412 chip but that doesnt have LTE support from what i saw. if you guys are lucky, they'll use an add on chip and you'll get to enjoy quad core goodness. at worse, you'll just get another snapdragon s4.
