    The samsung galaxy s3 looks a lot bttr in specs and os than the iphone 5 is gonna be. I am an iphone user and android. What i dont understand is why ppl hate apple with a passion. Im not saying they're perfect but just CALM DOWN. My opinion is that apple was better, atleast to me, because ios was very polished and smooth. My iphone 3gs still runs faster than my galaxy s 4g, because ios was less bloated. But now that changed. Android has improved greatly, while apple stayed the same. So while I am still an apple fan, i wont folliw them blindly. Unless the iPhone 5 is bttr than the rumors, im getting the sgs3

    The reason nobody likes apple is because they try to sue google devices for everylittle thing that they so call claim to have patented first. It's quite funny considering the facts that apple had copied the palm treo and blackberrys which were the original smartphones of the day back then. I could make a list of all the crap since that era that they've copied as well. Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against competition and innovation and its obvious that people love apple devices and it is a great device, but what apple wants to do is not compete and innovate, they just want to get rid of the competition and not let anyone further excel in the phone market cause of there little girl insecurities. It has truely gotten to one of the saddest points I have seen. Almost 90 percent of the time, the people I know that have iPhones aren't even close to as tech savy as people that use the android platform and that's because I personally think that the iPhone is just a dumbed down version of a smartphone with limited capabilities due to its closed source os. The things I can due with a rooted device on android have way way more capabilities than having a jailborken iPhone.

    I can honestly say that from the beginning no matter what, I was going to 'love' the GS3 regardless of how it actually was when it finally arrived. Now I have got it and have been using it... blind faith aside... it is actually a truly beautiful phone. Nothing currently comes close - and those 'new' IOS6 features are largely android 2.1 features.
    Get the GS3... you can't go wrong. Its an amazing device

    The signal on the international version is great, as well as wifi,and bluetooth. Not one dropped call, not one rejected text, real stable signal- lets hope the radio for the US versions are good as well!

    Why is turn by turn navigation such a big deal? I already have that on iPhone 4s. Waze & mapquest does this already. I think the big part of it will be integrating Siri & asking Siri do do things in the middle of the navigation, like asking for gas stations, restaurants, etc.

    That being said, I'm bored with its also. I'm moving on & paying off contract pricing for the sgs3. I wasn't impressed with its 6, & I want a bigger phone.

    Haha thats great! But seriously I don't think it will look like the HTC One X threads, for real there is a ton of these in that forum, me contributing to a few of them I got a bunch of One X lemons

    The SG3 is pretty solid, at least my international version is- the most bugless Android I ever owned.

    Because its integrated into the OS. Clicking on an address on a web page in the browser and getting the option to navigate there. Clicking on a place in maps or Yelp or any other app and being able to navigate there...with one click. Opening a contact and going there with one click.

    You'll see what I mean when you actually have that functionality. You don't know what you've been missing.

    I had a Tomtom I used every day because my job required driving all over the state. After I got a Motorola Droid, I had no issue boxing the Tomtom up and sending it to my sister. That was over two years ago when navigation was in beta.

    Google Maps is one of the best parts of Android. I feel it's the most updated of the Google Apps. Google takes it seriously and it shows. It startlingly accurate, fast, and full of features that you have to use to appreciate, like the traffic widget that at a glance informs you of traffic conditions from your location to a specific address. It automatically reroutes around traffic in navigation mode. It precaches routes in case you lose data while driving. The level of detail with respect to street names and locations is awesome. I haven't seen Maps replicated closely anywhere, including standalone gps units. The current iOS version (made by Apple with Google Maps data) isn't as useful but still provides that degree of detail.

    If Apple can update its Maps app to bring it to parody and provide a better experience by unplugging Google's data and using Tomtom or Openmaps, good for it. What has me wondering is why this didn't happen sooner. Jobs hated Android. How hard would it have been to kick Google out of maps with iOS 4? Why did they keep using them? I honestly think Google provides a better user experience with its data. We'll find out if that's true soon enough.

    That's true, you have a valid point. I am moving to android with the gs3, so I look forward to it. Though I am a home body. Lol!! I work from home and hate dealing with the outside world.

    I see Apple going the way of Xerox. They came out with an innovative product but didn't keep up with other copier manufactures' bells and whistles. They kept their prices high and relied on their reputation versus innovation. Apple seems headed down the same road.

    And what proof do you have of this? Their earnings & stock price say otherwise. They are in it for the long haul.

    Once you are at the top there is only one way to go...

    All I see are people getting tired of Apple. Techie people are fed up with the unnecessary litigation, others are fed up with the same old junk being recycled - in all honesty how is an ipad 1 any different from an ipad 3 for browsing the net (what 99% of people primarily use them for) ? its not.
    Suddenly people realised they don't need to listen to the hype and don't need to have the very latest Apple product, even if the PR department say otherwise.

    Meanwhile its plain to see that the products are suffering - iOS has gone another year without any real functionality being added - ok so they have maps/nav now, great - they desperately needed to fix that because Android is very strong in that area. Its still massively restrictive.

    The upgrade to OSX little more than a service pack - a few new bits and bobs, but its not a major release. Its also interesting that they are starting to fragment it with some features not available on older hardware.

    The new "retina" macbook - very pretty, nice screen but the machine isn't upgradable - you can't swap out the hard drive or add memory, the battery is glued in to the casing which means a $200 bill for Apple to change it. Have a read of this : The New MacBook Pro: Unfixable, Unhackable, Untenable | Gadget Lab | Wired.com

    Apple fans are waking up to all of these issues and looking for alternatives - and finding them.

    As far as the next iphone goes - we've already seen the software, all that is left to see is the design of the thing - no big deal. I guess you might want to see hardware specs, but to a great extent its not that important - we already have the software and know what it can do, a big hardware spec for the phone wont really matter.

    There will always be die hard fans of anything, but its not those guys that make a company successful / profitable.

    I don't disagree with you & you have very valid points. I myself am in the category of switching phones because I was unimpressed with the iOS 6 update & I want a bigger phone. But apple will not go anywhere. They are happy with where they are. They don't need to dominate anything, that's how they've been for gosh knows how long. Look @ Mac & windows, windows is dominant, still is, android is pretty much there. Apple is that kid on the playground that just does their own thing, they don't care about any of the other kids. & the patent thing, while seems messy & over blown, they have a right to protect their IP, just like any other company.
