Is it worth buying sgs3 / onex now espeacially since cortex a15's are arround the corner ? Dual core snapdragon s4 comes close to both quad core exynos and tega3 & hell even beats them in some benchmarks so naturally quad core a15's will blow away all current flagships . I want a phone which is well future proof - many may say including manufacturers that their current flagships are quite future proof but thats just another gimmick . They offcourse will port one more iteration (jellybean) that too stripped of some features that they've saved for their next flagship - but other than that i dont expect them to be any more generous - afterall if they are going to update older devices whose gonna buy new ones
.... So i guess the longer i wait more are the chaces of me ending up buying a more future proof device !
Sorry for the essay to sum it up - Is it worth buying sgs3/onex now or wait a bit more
Edit : dont know if this is the right section to post this or whether such things have already been discussed here if so feel free to delete the topic !
If you want to buy any of these two great smartphones why not buy it now.
Waiting is always a dangerous game to play in the mobile world. You can never stop waiting for a better phone!
But if you have any taste for bigger device, I might as well advise you to wait for Galaxy Note II but If not buy any of these two phones.
