    Love the device ...feels great

    BUTTTTTTT

    some of my every day apps are still not working on 4.2 (starbucks/Volume +/live 365)

    and NO LTE...

    Just got a SGS3 and I am very pleased... (I love that the menu buttons are on the device and APPS use a FULL screen)

    I am sure I will be back... but sometimes being first on the block is not the best thing

    When the roms start coming out it will get rid of the on screen buttons. Good luck with touch wiz and lack of updates.

    Yes.. I was fully aware came from a galaxy nexus..

    But the apps and the LTE were the tipping point...

    I could have and have been living with no LTE... but it is a nice bonus with the SGS3

    Because a handful of apps haven't been updated by slow-moving devs, you're slamming the PHONE and tossing in the "no LTE = teh failz!" canard to justify it? Hokay. See ya!

    Since hardware buttons will NEVER be on a Nexus device, meaning you'll feel that you aren't getting your FULL screen's worth, why would you return since it's obviously a deal breaker?

    BTW, one of the things that put me off the GS3 was that raised mechanical home button. After 2-1/2 years of capacitive home buttons on my EVO 4G and GS2, having to click something seems regressive, not to mention it's something that could potentially wear out and is a path for dust and grit to enter the phone.

    Well, that adds a new phone to the mix of new availability. Haha.

    I'm a Nexus fan, but congratulations on your new phone though. The GS3 is a great phone, and you should feel good about your choice.

    Just to be fair to the various android developers we go thru this every time a new OS update comes out, it takes sometimes months for the devs to jump on the update with their apps. There is still apps out there that haven't been updated to utilize ICS(4.0.4) and JB (4.1.x).

    Returning it? that's dumb. You have to pay re-stocking. Might as well just sell it on a private sale or eBay...

    Google will charge you a restocking fee. Just a heads up that you can probably turn a profit reselling it on ebay. The phone is in demand and supply is low. You never know what someone will pay to have it right now.

    I'm surprised that Starbucks even has an Android app. Seems like they'd make that iPhone only in order to keep it isolated to only elite hipsters for whom $5 is a OK price for ground beans in hot water.

    I like how the coffee shop that June on Don't Trust The B---- in Apt 23 works is named "It's Just Beans!" Exactly.

    This whole thread is silly.

    To the OP, enjoy your new phone, but don't expect sympathy here for disliking the N4. Just sell it and move on.

    To everyone else, why does it matter if the Starbucks app is important to him? Maybe he likes their half double decaffeinated half-caf with a twist of lemon, and the cost is worth that little bit of joy he gets from it.
