    There is absolutely nothing wrong with that, my friend.

    I thought the same. Bought the S3 and after about 2 weeks I took it back. Just wasn't the same. Our house is so automated in Apple and it just didn't feel the same.

    I have had an S3 for over a month. I loved the phone. I am too invested in the Apple ecosystem to switch, plus I do like the 3.5 inch screen. I am selling my S3 to my son. My iPhone 4S is reactivated. I will continue to be part of Apples fan base. Their support and quality has convinced me.

    The Galaxy S3 is a very nice phone. But some of us just prefer the iPhone 4s.

    for those of you that used it how was the battery performance?

    this could be one of the deciding factors whether i get it or not

    They look very nice and there are some good features. But if you are apple born and bred, the change is hard to deal with. I've heard the battery can drain quick under hard usage. But guess that is the same for the iPhone.

    I notice that there haven't been all these complaints about the battery life that you would typically see in unison when it comes to a device. The battery is pretty big. I think it's 2400 mah. I strongly considered a move to it in July and did a lot of reading up on it and battery life wasn't a major complaint.

    I had been considering the S3 as well. I've been upgrade eligible since 11 Aug but didn't want to pull the trigger until I saw what Apple's next offering was going to be about. Plus, there's always my disdain for feeling tethered to a charger which, in my 5-6 Android device experiences, seems to be commonplace.

    I jumped and settled in. Im over the iphone and the ios. The S3 is amazing and I will never look back. I figured if the biggest upgrade we were gonna get was a slightly bigger screen then it was time to look elsewhere.

    Tap'n like a BOSS

    The Galaxy SIII is a beast of a phone. The size alone makes it a media delight. But I can't do Android anymore. I need something consistent with software and hardware performance.

    My son has the Galaxy S3 and is very happy with the batttery performance. He can get through a day with heavy usage. Movies, music, games, text, email... etc.

    Personally, if I had to falter from my Apple path, I would go HTC One X.

    Drastically superior phone from the SGIII, in my opinion.

    But, I guess I'm Apple bred, cause after playing with both phones, I still preferred every bit of my 4S over the alleged "superior" competition.

    Again, that's just me, though.

    I was a hardcore Android addict. I loved their phones still. But one I switched to Apple, the hardware really had me convinced. And I was anti-Apple at one point. I would never buy an Apple product. Once I did, it's the longest phone I've kept so far and still love it. Even though it lacks what all the Newest Androids do.

    i read that Jelly Bean will be coming soon to the GS3 and this will allow Google Now to be used on the device - is this correct?

    also, is there Twitter and Facebook integration as there is with iOS (iOS 6) or better?

    Do tell us more....
    For starters, apps aren't consistent throughout Android. I remember getting a software update and then some of my most used apps wouldn't work anymore. I had to wait for the next update to the app which could take days, weeks, or months depending. Not all apps and games are compatible with every Android device either. As far as hardware, performance seems to be iffy depending upon the manufacturer. Motorola seemed to always have bad cameras, Samsung usually has reception issues, and HTC could have any number of hardware issues. I am also tired of having to search for alternatives for stock apps and functions. It just bothers me to buy a phone and because the stock keyboard is barely useable, I have to buy another one from the Google Play store to replace it. I can understand having choices and preferring other things, but when the first option that comes stock on the phone doesn't work out of the box, that's a problem. That's why I have gone back to the iPhone and iPad.

    A couple points of personal observations. The members of this forum are much more mature than those on the Android forum. My first S3 was badly defective, when I explained my problem, very few helpful posts but many juvenile responses and attacks. My second S3 did work great and I even expressed after the lawsuit that I would never return to Apple. My son bought my S3 today and I am back to my iPhone 4S and I am thrilled!

    I love the 4S! With the exception of my son, my entire family uses iPhones. It fits with my PB, and my New iPad! I love iCloud and I am glad I am back.

    I used both an s3 and the 4s and think the s3 is a little better when you actually use the phone. If it's just standing by or not using very much then the 4s is a little better. If you really hammer either they are going to drain fast, but with the larger screen and lte it really is pretty impressive battery life. Hopefully the next iphone if it has lte has a little better battery life than the 4s did. My 4 had better battery than the 4s did.

    Sometimes I feel that Android is heading to a point where one day you an Android device will only have one app and that's the Google Play store and you will have to customize everything yourself. I think that it has been Android's excuse to allow some things to not work. The mindset seems to be if you don't like it, root your phone or replace that function with another app from the Google Play store.

    Understand completely. I'm jealous of the big screen on the Galaxy III.... but the idea of futzing around with Android gives me the chills. Apple really needs to come through with a big beautiful screen on the new phone...

    Market has already spoken and bigger (is) better for many people
