    IF...you do take the sgs3 route and try it out, mistah m I will have my ear to the ground to hear your opinion on it I've had an interest in It as well, but idk if I want to worry about a change in platform to learn. I've had bb, and now ios, so android seems right in between the two, sort of. Really couldn't be that hard to pick up.

    BUT, idk if I'd want to.....
    I'll definitely keep you posted Pink. I came from Android to iOS and have dabbled in Android off and on after coming to iOS so I'm very familiar with it. I've read that the new software is very iOS'ish in efficiency and that it has good battery life which is a MAJOR draw for me.

    I just read through this whole thread. As others have said, I can't believe everyone has been so mature with this topic. It is definitely rare to be able to have such a conversation between Apple and Android users!! I am an Android fan/user and almost every discussion with an Apple user is "Apple/iPhone is better." It is refreshing to see this thread with points being used to validate the differences/advantages with each OS. Cheers!!

    I still feel that Apple is doing the right thing. They are not following the competition as far as the whole size issue. If that was the case the 3GS or the 4 would have gone 4 inch. I have played with different Androids from people around where I work. All they can really point out is the screen size. But I like what someone posted earlier, is the consistency of apps and os upgrades. They are not uniform. Once an update is available, it knocks out alot of phones to be able to use it until the app updates, but even then unsure if all will support it. At the end it seems to be more about uniformity and playing it cool as they feel it should be. Honestly, does Apple need to create a 4.5" screen just to supposedly compete? I don't think so.

    I do agree with consistency I have worked with android phones for a while but I can be honest and tell you I have tried IOS, WP7 and BB, and the main issue with android is yes there is no consistency with Android Updates or apps, yes I know if you have the Latest phone all your apps will work, but the fragmentation that happens when there are several low to mid tier android devices which consumers are not able to download certain apps because they arent compatible with their device is an issue, also keep in mind with the updates of OS which one company promises that it will update a device and it could take up to 6 months later to get updated its ridiculous, there are several adnroid devices running android 2.3 and Jelly bean is already out and most if not all will not get the Update, WP7 they have been consistent with updates, even though their phones will get wp 7.8 and not WP 8 we will have to see if they get any kind of fragmentation, now IOS has been the most consistent one since they only carry one device is easier and I understand that, but is all about the consumer experience, there are some things that older versions will not get and we understand that they need to seel devices like the Iphone 4 did not get Siri, which that was the 4S selling point, all OS have their pros and cons, with android you get customization but not as much update support, IOS you get great update support and ease of use but in a more controlled environment, WP 7 or 8 now you have great Update support ease of use but lack of app selection, is really up to your choice, I have tried it all, but lately been tired of waiting for updates on Android with my SGS3 and yes I know you could buy a Nexus, but the Nexus even on JB has its own issues, speakers being terrible, GPS not great and old hardware that lags even with JB from time to time, I am ready to move on to another OS I been thinking between IOS and WP 8 and for now I need a better app selection, so IOS having over 700k apps is a better options, now I have been wondering for a while which one should I buy and Iphone 4S or and Iphone 5 which right now is almost impossible to get,now I 'm sure there are some differences with hardware, like size and weight, and some design changes with materials used, now I have seen numbers with the A6 being better than A5 almost by triple, the big question is how it translates into real life performance, if any of you guys would shed some light I really cant decide if I should go for the 5 or get the 4S, thanks in advanced

    The crazy thing is I swear when I ordered that we switched my upgrade to her line.

    No, can't even get all the way into the phone without inserting the SIM and going through the activation process.

    I don't think it's outdated. This is coming from a long time Android user. Went from Galaxy S, to HTC Sensation, Galaxy S2 & S3, and I jumped ship and couldn't have made a better decision. I love every aspect of the iPhone 4S. I don't feel any need to switch to the 5 anytime soon.

    maybe you wanna recheck that upgrade switch from the order....maybe it didnt switch for whatever reason. That does suck that you cant get into the brains of it without inserting the sim

    I feel ya. I had the 4S earlier this year, then switched to Galaxy S3. Now I'm back with the 4S again. Didn't want the 5 either right now. I have an upgrade next June so we will see if a 5S comes out. Or could just save it for the iPhone 6. Who knows.

    Exactly. Same boat I'm in. I have an upgrade next march or so (wild guess) so let's see what that brings us. Couldn't be happier with my switch though. Love the Apple community. Now next up is switching from PC to a Mac. -.-

    It likely won't be to you because you're used to getting like 6 days on a charge!

    But, for me who is at a point where all I really need you to do is get me through my work day without charging, then it's good. Plus, it's MUCH better than my previous Android experience. When I tried the Razr (not the Maxx) I was charging up from 12% at lunch time. Not good...

    But again, this is only day one. LOL

    Lmao, let's not get outta hand here! I can stretch my 4S 2-1/2days if need be, but on average now because I use it more than I used to, I can go 1-1/2 to 2days. So basically your telling me here that with the sgs3 I could probably stretch it to 2-1/2-3 days then? I average about 4 hrs usage a day in average, sometimes a little more. It really depends on the day. I'm just trying to gauge an estimate here

    So for you day 1 is going well nice!!

    So far so good. Normally I'm off the charger around 7am and I charge on my way home from work. This morning I came off the charger about an hour and a half earlier then the wife decided she wanted to stay home today. Lol Here's where I stand after almost 10 hours...

    Screen has been on for 4h 33m...So imagine if I want using it so much LOL

    That's VERY good! I'd likely never get that type of performance because I text and check Twitter throughout the day. Lol Tomorrow will be a real test because my signal isn't the strongest in the building at work.

    In addition, I think I'm still so concerned about battery life from before that it forces me to use my phone less! Ha

    Just to throw my 2 cents in this thread... I still like the weight and feel of my 4S. I use a Seidio case with Holster for total protection and the weight,feel and look of my phone overall keeps me happy with it. I just plain like it and it does everything I need it to do both for business and personal use.

    Yea, he txs and does FB, with some emails through out the day as well. No twitter tho. As for your signal at work in th building, now that could be challenging. I know when I go to the malls around here, because the walls are so dense my battery looses quite a few percent while I'm there, which can't be helped. Hopefully for you at work tomorrow will prove to be a good battery performance on the sgs3
