    In other words the same time it was released this year. Samsung is smart, they have 2 mega hits in the GS3, and Note2. They would be foolish to refresh either of these any sooner than a year.

    It still gives some incentive to wait. Why have the predecessor for three or four months when you can have the latest and greatest especially since the poster's upgrade opportunity is in March 2013.?

    I know my husband won't wait past March. He is ready to throw his phone against the wall right now. Lol

    GS3 which needs to be updated JB. No stylus.

    Note 2 excels at content creation and multi-tasking. Digitized stylus. Larger screen. JB on board.

    It's the 4s. He finally called Apple today and they are sending him a new 4s. He was actually 13 days past his warranty (which he didn't realize), and they let it slide for him and wavered the fee. Kudo's to Apple for doing that (which they didn't have to do). So he's pretty happy right now. The only thing that may keep him from switching to Android is that he has over 7000 apps (maybe around 100 of those were actually mine). There is quite a few that he really likes that Android does not have (well, yet anyway). But he will be looking at the Android apps between now and March, to see what is out there. I still have hope for him. lol

    Thats what I'm wondering!! For the amount of apps that both Android and Apple have only a fraction of them are any good...but 7k?!?! Seriously?!?! Most of my wife's and mine are business apps for our business which Android has plenty of quality ones.

    In other news the US Patent Board stuck down two of Apples biggest patents over touch screens and gestures calling then "frivolous" and "not original" (Forbes). Of course Apple can appeal and probably will but in the meantime all is right in the world.

    Believe me, I was surprised to say the least he had that many apps. A lot were free, but he has been getting apps for iphone since it has been out. That also include his iPad apps. Lots of them he hasn't used in years. He has a lot of music, games and photo plus silly stuff. I remember someone on a apple forum who claimed to have over 10,000 a couple of years ago. I was like "what!?". Now I'm saying the same thing to my husband: "What?!"

    Well you can tell him I had an iPhone 3G which I had to exchange FIVE times when Apple bungled the OS update and made iOS 4 available to iP3G owners, which basically turned the phone into a brick and caused the battery to drain . They exchanged my phone well into the second year without a warranty and ended up giving me a new one at the end. That's the ONLY benefit in being able to go to the Apple store. The 'geniuses' aren't what I'd call genius though, LOL. I love my GS3 though there's no such thing as perfect. That said, am sure he'll be much happier and he obviously can't possibly be using 7000 apps on a regular basis.. He DOES have to sleep, eat and work doesn't he?

    LOL. Yes, he does function as a normal human being (coming out of his apple coma that is!). He told me he didn't realize he had that many till he happened to look at the total number at the itunes store. He would usually get an app and use it a few times, realize it was crap and move on. Remember, you can't try an app out and return it to Apple like you can with Android.

    This is the first time that he had to exchange an iphone, and he had 4 or 5 versions (I also never had trouble with any of mine). I have heard of stories like yours on the apple forums. Five exchanges is absolutely ridiculous! What a nightmare.

    I had to exchange my 4 twice and that was a nightmare even in warranty.

    He can always sync his tunes with Kies or Double twist.

    Hey guys, just wondering, but how good is the quality of the screen of the GS3?
    A lot of my friends have the iPhone 4 and its screen absolutely mesmerizes me with its beauty and depth.
    Is the GS3 like that too with 720p??

    I haven't had an iPhone 4 or 5 but I bet the GS3 is either better or comes darn close. The AMOLED screen on the GS3 is very rich and sharp. Beautiful to me

    My GS3 sleeps in the bed and I make my girlfriend sleep on the couch

    The color saturation on the GS3 is second to none. Colors are brighter, and text is crisp, and clear. Plus it's almost hilarious how much smaller the screen is on the iPhone 4 than the GS3. That was one of the things that sucked me in in the first place.

    Depends on if u like over saturated colors of the super amoled or the more natural representation of color found in LCD screens. The iPhone if your talking pixel density and how crisp the text is and not about size the iPhone is just about the best there is. Mainly this is personal preference though really depending if you like samoled or LCD.
