y iphone? cause free upgrade. Too bad all my friends had it 3 years ago.


And its hard to have a mobile phone here unless you have a car to charge it in. Most grass shacks arent allowed to have electrical outlets but the 1% run generators and have all these fancy computers and microwaves at their house.

They have not been as innovative as their rivals (Google leading the way). They are banking on customer loyalty, which will hold them afloat for a while. I see a new CEO in their future or they will have a tough time catching up.
Which is too bad. I hope Apple can come out with new products. Competition is best for inovation.

Also, people are finally wising up to the buy new every year for technology that was everywhere else 2 years ago. Apple is king of that shit and people are finally getting sick of it.
I think another issue lies in that Apple hasnt really come up with anything new, until the Iphone 5. Nor is there a line of products that can give people a wide choice. For example, the Tacoma. Its made by Toyota, but has 7 or more versions to accomodate most all who is interested in one. With the Iphone, you get a Black one, or White. With an Android, you have a shit load of choices. I think it would really be cool if Apple would produce more versions to accomodate different folks. I bet if they added an SD card slot, and 4.5" screen, there would be alot of folks jumping ship from Android to Apple. Keep the Iphone 5 for folks that dont want that large of a screen. And maybe have a 5" screen version to give the S3 a run for its money.

I am not an apple fan. But the good thing about apple is customer support. Have a problem with you samsung, and it is a hassle. I phone just drop in the apple store. My experience (actually, my daughter's) is that they treat you right if you have a problem.

Still I won't get an I phone because it is too small, lacks features I want (customization and hackability) and I hate the apple ecosystem.

Support for my android phone is in one of the many online tech user sites I visits. Post up a question and get an answer ASAP. Just like I wouldn't think about going to Toyota with an issue with my truck, I would come here first.

The S3 is a VERY impressive phone! The screen wont time out as long as your looking at it, the screen maintains its orientation in relation to your face, so if your laying on your side, looking at the phone, it wont rotate. And other things. I have never seen my Wifes phone lag in any way.

Android had 70% share in Q4. Up from 51% last year. They are dominating the smartphone industry right now.

Well, It's up to your choice. I once had an Iphone but trade to S3, I prefer Android phone..However, when it comes to changing phone the best way is either trade or recycle. You know you can use the extra cash. Plus, you’ll be helping the environment. =)

I just ditched my iPhone for the Samsung Galaxy S3 during my upgrade two weeks ago. Wanted something new (iOS never changes) and figured what the hell.

Initial impressions of Android software: Wow, you can do a lot of things with it. I'm not one for too much customization, but whatever I feel like changing, I have the option to. The screen on the GS3 if awesome - my wife upgraded to the iPhone 5 and when I use her phone, I know I made the right decision even if based on the screen alone. The only issue I have with the GS3 is battery life. I have searched high and low, made numerous changes to the settings, and it has helped to an extent. With the iPhone, I could go two full days with moderate use before needing a charge. Samsung: at the end of one day I need to plug it in; it even experiences some battery loss when just sitting there in sleep.

Texting is a major hurdle I am still trying to get over with the GS3. I was a fan of the iPhone's autocorrect, it scored a 95% accuracy with me (tried texting the boss "flags" and apple thought I meant "****"). With the GS3, I have to re-read my text just to search for errors when typing - the speak to text option is pretty sweet and very accurate though. All in all, I am very happy with the decision to switch it up.

I'm almost half tempted to become a hypocrite and switch to an iPhone at my next upgrade. I hate Apple and love Android when its functioning but every Android phone I've had has suffered from the eventual random reboot issue and random shut off issue where removing the battery is the only way to get it back on. My Galaxy Nexus has began now after just over a year. A shame cause its otherwise an awesome phone.
