I'm currently pondering which phone to get next. The Galaxy Nexus will have Android 4.1 (eventually) but the Samsung S3 has way better hardware. Actually in all hardware aspects, the S3 kills. So that begs the question. Is there any reason to get the Galaxy Nexus when the S3 is available on almost all carriers?
Also, since the S3 is Samsung's flagship phone, it's highly probable that it will also get an update to 4.1. It stands to reason, I should just buy the S3.
