    Absolutely wouldn't. The iOS vs android debate doesn't even come into it. It is outrageously expensive to repair Samsung phones. Just the display assembly is often over $200. You drop it once and your carrier unzips their pants.

    I got the GS3 couple days ago and a day later I'm back on the the 4s. The screen is to big to use with one had and seems like you would have to do twice as much clicks to do something unlike iOS.

    The S3 has me seriously considering Android for the first time. I'm going to see what the next iPhone has to offer, I'd love to stick wiith the iPhone, but as far as what I'm looking for Android is seriously closing the gap. At this point it's mainly the superior (IMO) hardware that's keeping me around because iOS6 (again, IMO) was a HUGE letdown.

    If the iPhone 5 will have a jailbreak, then I would probably upgrade to it. My 4S is good for me now soo I won't just jump ship to GS3 for a bigger screen and some gimmicks.

    Ive never understood people like this, why is a good thing on an iphone classed as a "feature", yet on anything else its classed as a "gimmick"??

    Like many have said before me, absolutely loving the IPhone still, so it's wont be difficult for me to wait for the next IPhone or for the BB10 phones. The IPhone 4S' been serving me well so far.

    I'm liking the iPhone too much to switch. Android can be awesome if you have the right device and on the right network, but the iPhone is drama free for me. The SGS III looks killer. I would love to play around with it. But afterward, I will be going back to my iPhone.

    I'm going to consider it. I have the iPhone 4 right now so I am eligible for an upgrade on ATT. I will also be switching to Verizon when the next iPhone comes out since I do not have ATT coverage where I now live.

    I'll see how much I will lose/gain.

    I want the iPhone 5 but if I can have the S3 as a backup plan or to sell, that will be nice.

    I just got the galaxy and both OS's have their positives and negatives.

    Right now I like the galaxy because of customization, removable battery, and memory card.

    Never understood the dropping thing as an argument. I did not buy a Panasonic TV because it can fall ten stories without breaking a sweat... I mean, yes we have it at hand everyday, but it is obvious that ANY decent smartphone will not appreciate the fall. Sturdy will be a focus point when choosing a case, accordingly to the user's habit and needs. I let my barely 4 year old daughter play with my iPhone's camera on numerous occasions, and even she doesn't drop the thing. And she's not so the caring type! :P

    GSIII is not a bad smartphone. I go against it a lot by pure principle. But what I still think it is missing is that polish Apple's got. Oh fine, the native layout might get boring to some, and yet fit perfectly for another. If not there's always jailbreaking. I don't see why it is such a burden that iPhone don't come feature loaded right ouf of the box, when it takes about 10 minutes JBing it. In my sense, their ways allow Apple to focus on integration, and it is as close to perfection as it can get. I think Apple is counting on that equilibrium jailbreak provides. I mean, they do make things hard for unlocking with their baseband protections and signing protocols, and I can understand where that pressure comes from... Nasty carriers wanting dominion over our bank accounts, a philosophy indeed close to Apple's ways. But jailbreaking always comes swiftly after a release is made, should it be new hardware/firmware or just firmware.

    So I'm talking about Android devices needing to display their massively alive OS with the same kind of perfect integration and smooth looks, to really get my attention. Which they don't, I'm sorry. I don't doubt they can be customized to look better, though I saw a couple tweaked SII that did not grab me at all neither. There's something missing there, some subtle clumsiness. But if Android keeps on the same track, Apple may start to lose ground big time in a near-future market, and never regain it. Introducing a slightly bigger screen, and allow for at least some basic customization of looks and use, is due right now. I don't believe in enormous screens, but 4 inch is a very decent and proportionate screen for a phone, and at such size could stay a long time unchanged; could be achieved by adding some 5 mm width, and 10mm height, and go pretty much unnoticed. As to customization, it would be great if iPhone users could do a little more than "define" use and accept looks when setting up their devices.

    Integration is the same reason why Android features are often called gimmicks, in my sense. There's something fidgety there. Like the "Smart stay" thing. In the ads, it looks so swift, so integrated, so human. In reality, the front camera scan your face every once in a while, which "while" you can set up. Thing is, it just will not dim instantly as you fall asleep like that guy with his daughter... and if you set up a shorter scan interval to get more response, because you so want to be like the ads show, well it may very well catch you all the more easily looking at that roaring sports car passing by at the wrong moment, and dim anyway. In all, it is smart, but a little gimmicky, and obvioulsy better in mediatic focus than actual user benefit. Without that so great feature, just setting up the dimmer at two minutes will do the trick, IMO. Humans largely fail to concentrate longer than that in most situations, and even less so when reading something off internet, so chances are you'll have changed app, received a text, started talking with someone, or staring dumbly in the air, in a 2 minutes delay, if not simply scrolled the screen to continue reading. And two minutes won't kill the battery if you do fall asleep. And really, with all those laptops and those tablets selling, who is using his phone to watch cute videos with his daughter at night? S'not a bad thing, Smart Stay, not something to prevent you buying the SIII, and it's got a cool innovative edge, but certainly it is mainly creating a need, not filling one - at least, not one that could not be filled with a banal dimmer set up. That said, Apple do also have certain gimmicks.

    In short... I'm not considering going with Samsung, and I'm waiting for the next iPhone.

    As it gets closer to the Fall, I have trouble believing Apple is content with letting Android run away with the ball, Jobs said he wanted to kill Android, there has to be more to iOS6, and something huge coming for the iPhone 5, a lot more than a dumb stretched candy bar screen, and faster download speeds. If there isn't, I don't know what to say, other than I actually desire the first phone to come stock with Jellybean as bad as I wanted my iPhone 4, I'm tired of using an OS designed so the dumbest ******* on Earth can use it, how smart is it when it's so dumbed down?

    It is "smart" enough to get everyone to buy it and feel comfortable using it. It is the reason newspapers are written at a second grade level. If you want to reach the critical mass of people, it has to be universally understood and usable. That is the "smart" in Apple's scheme.

    True, a lot of people just want to pick up a phone and use it without having to search for things or even read a manual about the phone. The iPhone was meant for these type of people. In all fairness, though, I think Android has changed a lot, especially now with Jellybean. This is the easiest version of Android that I've used.

    I think Google is looking to expand far beyond Apple. I believe that is why they are looking to make their products less techy and more user friendly. Once they are able to control the hardware side and have full control over the Android experience, then they can truly dominate.

    A lot of you people seriously make me laugh. I have had every iPhone since the first and during that time I've also had the OG Droid, the Incredible, the Evo and several other Android devices. I think that I can speak from the side of the true gadget/tech lover who is no fanboy. I see people complaining and saying that they will take back their Apple products because Apple wants to be paid for what is being stolen from them. Fine! Go! Nobody that I can think of cares! LOL! One day if you have the brains to create anything useful I hope that it's stolen and when it is I'll expect you to shut up and take it because you have made it clear that going to court isn't "cool". I can appreciate the GS3 for the beastly beauty that it is but I'm waiting to see what Apple has up its sleeve for the next iPhone before I buy anything else. Of course the Samsung phone is outselling the iPhone. It's new. And anybody with a brain is waiting to get the new iPhone so iPhones will be in a slump until it arrives. Use your brains. Articles that talk about things like how the GS3 is beating the iPhone are link bait. They give small minds a place to argue and laugh for their 3 months or less of victory that they get every year while people wait for the next iPhone. We see the pause and slump in iPhone purchases every year when it's almost time to get the new iPhone. Why is this news every year?
