38 reasons why the Samsung Galaxy S III is better than the Galaxy S II

If I am not writing, you will always find me at the XDA Forums reading about the latest ROMs, hacks and other Android-related stuff. I happened to look at the Galaxy S III section where XDA member “cyprusx” has made a list of 38 reasons why the Galaxy S3 will “kill” the Galaxy S II-he even made a video about it. One of the new features that Samsung added is S Voice which has for purpose to compete with Apple’s Siri voice assistant. The other obvious changes are the inclusion of the Exynos quad-core chip with a faster GPU, 64GB of internal storage, up to 128GB total storage with microSD expansion, 50GB of cloud storage via DropBox and more. Here is the full list, so far, as per cyprusX:
