Lets all stop the fanboyism here and be REALISTIC. Both are amazing phones in terms of appeal, performance, and whatever else. There is a reason the GS3 is the most popular android device and highly sought after. And I'm sure that atm the same goes for L920 in terms of windows phones.
Only thing I'll agree on is that the TouchWiz UI is pretty awful looking but that doesn't matter since you can just get a custom ROM. Don't like tinkering with your phone to get it the way you want? Well obviously then just get iOS or WP. Stupid OS war is stupid, get what you suits you

I tested this myself. Browser animations are really smooth on the gs3 (sites with swipe gestures have clean fluid animations. On 920 it is choppy.)
Browser performance is mostly the same. Scrolling was fluid on both.
But the display on the GS3 gives off a blue tint to white background sites, and text is harder to read (ppi is higher on the 920 I believe.)
I give the edge to the 920 for those reasons.

It will be a cold day in Hades before I use any Android device again. Two phones and a tablet were enough for me. I'd sooner buy an iPhone than a crapdroid.

Consumers don't want to waste time on propellerhead activities. They want something that works.
Galaxy S III is VERY flashy out of the box. I have one. I looked at it and thought "hmmmm, maybe they've finally fixed Android's serious usability issues." For a couple of weeks, all was well (other than the cartoonish UI). Then, the old Android slowdowns, freezes, crashes, lockups, and incompatibilities reappeared and got worse with time. Underneath all the propaganda, UI tweaks, and super hardware, it's still the crusty, musty Android junkpile we all know and "love."
