    I'd like to know the answer to this too. I also have airport expresses around my house and use it for whole home audio without wires. I was ok without my iPhone until my Mac mini died. Now I gave no way to get music to my speaker system :-(

    As for why there is no iPhone S3 forum its because people get too emotional about each device. Neither side can admit to flaws or better features in the competing device lol

    Never said it was better just on par. Clearly something was wrong because my outdoor pics have never been washed out that badly.

    It's funny because numerous test show the iPhone camera is better. Only on a GS3 forum will you find ppl that say the S3 camera is better. It's not even close. I had (3) S3's and none recorded video like my 5. Nor took pictures. The the GS3 might be better in other areas but not the camera.
    My sgs2 cam was better than the ip5. Proved it multiple times.

    I don't know, my iPhone also took better pictures than my current S3. I'm not switching back because when I care about a picture I take my camera. However it was nice being able to get great pictures from my iPhone. Just this morning I took a picture out my window with my S3 to show a colleague at work. I was once again reminded of how much better pictures my iPhone took. I'm not sure if its the camera, lens, software, or what, but the iPhone pictures just looked better.

    Something was definitely wrong then because my pics with both were on par with each other. Wish I still had them to post on here. My wife and I took the pictures when I got the s3 and she had the 4 and 4s.

    Really?? If you say so. I had that phone also before I bought a 4S. I think the HTC X One takes better pictures than the SG3.

    I just figure I use my phone as a phone and mini computer more than I use it as a camera and it is a phone so I buy it for it's phone and mini computer features. If I want a good camera, I buy a camera.

    It's probably just my device but my S3 lags frequently whenever I'm typing, I've factory resetted my phone after updating to JB but the phone still lags, oddly, after I clear the RAM, it lags when I press the home button. I think I've got a faulty device because the return button is not quite responsive either. And I have noticed that the camera is not as great as I would have imagined. Aside from these technical issues, the only thing that makes me really miss the iPhone are a handful of apps that I use regularly that either Google Play does not have or the same app in the Play store is rather buggy and prone to issues. But the S3 is a great looking phone, a bit too big for my preference. The lagging issue really puts me off though.

    No lag here except for the occasional texting lag but even my iPhone 4 and 4s had text lag from time to time.

    What apps are you missing?

    After having this phone for 5 months I am very happy. I don't have any lag at all and have installed Apex launcher which is superb. The speed is absolutely amazing after you set it up correctly.

    The only thing that bothered me was the stock email app and the way it is, so I installed Auqumail and have been very happy with it.

    I actually love the camera on the Gs3 and I am amazed at the pictures it takes. I have the the Evo Lte, 4, and girlfriend has 4s. My Gs3 takes better pics out of them all. I think I got a really great copy of the Gs3. Plus I'm a photographer.

    I think the biggest problem for phones is animation. I have my animations turned off in developer options and turned off in Apex. With those turned off, your phone should fly.

    Also, live wallpapers will fill up your ram and make your phone slower.

    Camerawise iphone 5 > GS3. The quality on the ip5 is not comparable to the GS3, ip is way superior.

    Anything else GS3 is better, being an iphone user for 3 years, I switch to my sammy s3 a couple of months ago, and I will not go back to iphones(unless they change the IOS completely that is, and we all know its not gonna happen anytime soon).

    On a side note my brother has an ip 5 he bought on release day and he is planning on selling it because of how awesome my GS3 is. He also owned an iphone 4, and 3GS.

    TBH. I am one of those people who uses their phone for everything I can, and with the GS3 I have found infinite things that I can tweak/modify and it is awesome!

    The GS3 has a slightly upgraded version of the SAME camera in in the iPhone 4S. It's basically the exact same hardware. The differences you see in quality between the two phones are a result of software. I have found that the GS3 takes stellar photos in daylight. I had serious quality issues in low-light situations, but that seems to have drastically improved with the new camera in the 4.1.1 update.

    The camera in the iPhone 5 is the next step up from the one found in the iPhone 4/SGS 3, and as such, will naturally take better pictures than they will. But again, it's heavily dependent on software. Hopefully Samsung will figure this out and start really paying attention to the camera apps they develop.

    Of course, there are other cameras in the Play Store that may yield better results than the stock camera.
