    Default How many people would get the Samsung GS3 if the next iPhone doesn't come out soon

    I personally think the next iPhone will come out the between the middle of July/ end of August but if it doesn't I will probably switch to the Samsung GS3 . Apple has had over a year to make this phone so im hoping it comes out soon. Another reason is that apple delayed the HTC phones and is now delaying the gs3, which is kind of a direct competitor since the gs2 and the 4s came out a month after that did so in my mind apple will announce the next iPhone at wwdc next week and release it the 2nd or 3rd week in July.

    I like playing with android but hard to use as a daily driver. That said it all depends on what Verizon does with upgrades as I want to keep my unlimited data.

    The next iPhone will not be out till some time in the Fall. That said, I've been waiting for the GS3 for a long time and will most likely buy one. I've had enough of Jailbreaking my iPhone in order to get some of the features that really should be available on it right out of the box. As for Apples frivilous lawsuit games, I've had just about enough of them. While I still like Apple and will continue to use my iPad, these lawsuits of theirs that keep great smartphone devices held up overseas are getting absolutely ridiculous at this point. To me, it makes them look like they are afraid of anything that will offer any sort of competition to the iPhone. I know this statement will be looked at negatively because I am posting it on an Apple board, but it is how I feel after reading about yet another one of Apples lawsuits and one that now involves a smartphone that I have been waiting to be released here for a what seems like forever.

    Agreed, I don't like admitting it, but the GS3 makes the 4S look like a toy, I really really really hope Apple has something big hidden up their sleeve. If iOS 6's big new feature is another dumb row of icons on a stretched screen, I'm probably gonna try one out. I forgot how "un-smart" the iPhone feels with the stock OS, it's like a dumbphone with a big touchscreen and a bunch of apps.

    LOL, this is Apples logic as well. They think that because people leave for other devices and come back, that they are going to keep coming back. I'm sure RIM felt this way at one point too. Just look at where RIM is now.

    RIM is where Apple was in 1986-93. But I don't think RIM is going to make it like Apple did.

    I'm getting the sgs3 but will probably get the new iPhone as well. What can i say I like tech and can use competing OS's. I'm not like some who defend one os like its their child lol I have no loyalty to any OS or manufacturer.

    I'm totally content with my iPhone 4S and the current iOS version and I haven't really been paying attention to any other devices so I highly doubt I'll be giving up my iPhone for the SG III even if the next iPhone disappoints me.

    This is all there is to say. No matter how much Sammy tries, they'll still suck.

    Galaxy S3 Trumps iPhone 4S As UK's 'Most Popular Phone'

    Samsung's Galaxy S3 has surpassed Apple's iPhone 4S as the most popular smartphone in the UK, according to new statistics based on sales and live searches released on Sunday.

    According to Telegraph Consumer Technology Editor Matt Warman, the latest figures from uSwitch.com Mobile Tracker had the Galaxy S3 claiming the top spot in its first appearance on the charts. It replaces the iPhone 4S, which just one month ago had bumped the Samsung phone's predecessor, the Galaxy S2, out of the top spot, according to the British newspaper.

    No one. Because on one likes Sammy's products. They want real iPhones, not rip off Samsung products.

    Apparently lots of people want the sgs3 as it knocked off the 4s as the best selling phone. And yes it is newer but if nobody wanted Samsung products they wouldn't be making record profits like they are.

    I defected before for about 3 days. I went to the s2. It just didn't like how it felt in my hands. The phone itself was quite impressive. Hard to say without having the two side by side.

    It's not about time, it's about how good each phone is. The S3 looks great and I feel like the iPhone 5 has to really step it up.

    BUT the one huge advantage that Apple has are apps. No matter how big and sexy the S3 is, Android still can't match the number and variety of apps.

    I'm still running the iPhone 4- got the white one when it first came out. But I feel like I can sit back and wait. I'm very happy with my white iPhone.

    The important thing to keep in mind with the apps is that, quantity doesn't equal quality. Yeah, iOS does have more apps, but they are not all quality apps. I think the App comparison may have been a good argument at one time, however, today there are more than enough apps in the Android Market place for people to find what they need.

    I have both the SGS3 and the 4S, I have always hated Android but the phone geek in me means I've had 4 or 5 different handsets and none have asked myself could I leave iOS for Android until now.
    I think I'll probably always have both but the Galaxy 3 really is a bit of a game changer IMO
