iPhone is probably not as good as the s3 and costs twice the price.

God I love my SIII. Wrapped up in a nice slick TPU case. I try to get everyone I see with an SIII to check out how their phone feels with my case on it.. so slick, so strong.

Gotta protect my baby. And that screen... it's gorgeous. So quick too... mmm.

Never have I ever been so happy with a phone. My last two smart phones were HTC and were nice out of the box, but two months later: utter shit.

True for some people, not for others. For example, I started with an iTouch. Nothing really like it at the time. I found it so useful that I decided to get an iPhone. I started with the iPhone 3G. There wasn't anything else on the market like it. All the Android phones were shit until the past 2 years. From the iPhone 3G I went to the 4, then the 5. At this point the Android phones have caught up, or passed the iPhone, in some ways. However, if you've had an iPhone since the early models and they do what you need there isn't much reason to switch. I would lose a ton of apps, etc. For me my iPhones have been very reliable devices for many years now.

Also just about everyone my wife and I know have iPhones, so we can text for free, Facetime, etc.

I don't know of a single feature on an Android phone that I wish I had on my iPhone. Maybe someone could point out some cool Android only features that would make someone want to ditch an iPhone.

I don't own a smartphone, but if I did I'd probably get an Android phone like the Galaxy S3 or something. I own an iPod Touch and a Google Nexus 7 tablet and it turns out it's the little things that make me lean towards the Android side. Stuff like quick brightness, battery, wifi toggles, etc. that are a pain to do in iOS are so much more convenient on Android, and they have so many downloadable apps and themes that let you customize your phone in ways that you would only be able to do if you jailbroke your iOS device. I'm not a huge widgets person so I won't get into any detail about that.

I think Apple dominates with their iOS music player, so if you like listening to music I'd suggest sticking with that (even though iTunes is a pain in the ass). The iMessage thing they do is pretty cool too.

I'm not saying these are features you have to have or anything, but they're just some cool things I like about Android.

Who even knows what the name of the new model Samsung, Android, or Windows phone is, they're all rubbish knock offs!

E.G.

You've just bought a new Samsung galaxy s 3.0 turbo, you tell a friend. He's like uh cool, and you go on explaining to him what it is.

Everyone knows what an iphone is and how great of a product it is.

On another note, who here knows a person who has owned an Android, Samsung, or Windows phone for two years and it still works fine and he/she loves it? No one, those phones aren't built to last two years or more.

I use a shitty 30 dollar Tracfone. I have an iPod Touch, and since an iPhone is very similar to the iPod Touch, I have to say that. I have never used an Android device before.

What about you douche-bags?

I spent £20 on a phone that has worked perfectly for 3+ years so far. Any notions of wasting such money on pointless extras is just amusing to me.

Anyone who knows anything about phones knows the Galaxy S series. Maybe you should get friends with brains lol, or maybe its you.

It's probably me. I just don't see a reason buying a phone that's going to be crap in two years.

Samsung Galaxy II rules

I like the Samsung note, but it is too big to carry in the pockets.

Samsung have good phones. Mine has been dropped so many times. Apple products are so delicate. They are more marketing than other thing

I have had both.

I had a Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant first, it was a good phone. I loved it, but ended up switching it out to try the iPhone.

I used the iPhone (4S I think) and was a fan of it, it seemed to run smoother than the Galaxy S Vibrant, but little things about the phone began to bug me, I felt that having an iPhone was a bad choice, and regretted getting rid of my Galaxy S.

After smashing my iPhone to pieces, I went back to a basic phone that can only text and call. A few months after I saved up, I went back to the Galaxy S Vibrant, as I got a good deal on it.

I prefer Android, although mine is outdated (Gingerbread), in my opinion it runs better than the iPhone did, and my homescreen is not cluttered with app icons like the iPhone forces, unless you make folders, which is another pain.

The Android is definitely the best in my opinion. Out of all the Androids out there that I've played with ,Samsung seems to have the best ones. My girlfriend has an SIII which I am a bit jealous of. My only complaint is the size of the Note II, my buddy came to town this weekend and has one, it felt so uncomfortable playing around on it.

Verdict is, my opinion = Samsung.


Yeah, whatever.

Just got my new 32GB Memory card for my Razr Maxx (which has 16GB internal) for $25 bucks which brings my phone memory up to 48GBs at only $224 (Phone was $199 and the card $25) the Iphone5 for the 32GB is $299 and the 64GB is $399
not to mention the Battery life difference I get 23 hours of phone use a compared to the Iphones 14 hours.

your better off with a Droid you get more bang for your buck and you customize the crap out of it unlike the iphone.

The Galaxy S2 and S3 support flash, and you can install it from their website instead of on the play store so flash is still around on phones.

Yeah exactly, theyre cheaper and do far more and have far better specifications, there is little reason at all to get an iPhone.

Actually apparently you can do it on any android device, although the lower spec ones will work shit of course.

Just dont use flash for too long because it uses up the battery loads and it makes your hand burn

my battery doesn't burn and I have a 3300 MAH so I won't have to worry and I just checked it doesn't use to much RAM.
