    I don't use Apple products and I'd probably unfriend OP for being condescending.

    The people on your Facebook are supposed to be your friends.

    I'm sorry, but just couldn't help stir the pot, I won't ever buy an iphone, and my reason isn't the phone, it is the company that made it, iphone 4 antenna problem, apple's response, your holding it wrong. Apple suing samsung and any other company that might come up with an idea that could be better than there's. Samsung was sued and has the nexus s ban from US sales because it resembles an iphone. Really! Look at the thing, it don't come close. Apple tells ppl that all the android platform is good for is porn. Really, wtf. Apple now has patented the wedge shape of a laptop, wtf. I don't understand how or why you would want to buy a product from a company that say this is what you want and how your gonna use it and your gonna like it.

    I'm a blackberry owner, and ill admit, that RIM has major problems, I hope they are able to pull through, but I won't hold my breath. The one main thing that RIM has that no one else can hold a candle to, is there security. I seen a guy hack into a fully updated iphone 4s in 3 min. And android. I don't even want to talk about it, its just as bad. Blackberry is the only device that has revived and maintains FIPS 140-2 certified by the National Institute of Standards and technology (NIST) and the Communications Security Establishment Canada (CSEC).


    Ok, I'm ready for my bashing now, lol.

    As someone who came from iPhone to s3 I must say that the two platforms aren't that much different.ice cream sandwich is just as smooth as iOS in my opinion. I've actually had less crashes than on my iPhone. I left the iPhone because I love Google services, and think they are light years ahead of icloud (which is total in my opinion). The apps are almost exactly the same - any app worth anything is going to be on both platforms. Just use what you like - Apple users are no dumber than Android users and vice versa.

    No bashing however to state that Samsung is oh so innocent is sticking your head in the sand. Here is a great article over at Android Police about the trial that starts on Monday.

    A Complete Overview Of The Apple v. Samsung Trial: Things Aren't Looking Great For Android's Biggest Manufacturer

    I agree RIM is very secure we only allow RIM devices on our Corporate network still today, we take a lot of heat over it but it's not worth the risk especially with all of the intrusions lately I'm not about to risk some ***** sales persons Android/iPhone device opening a nice hole into our company.

    Omg I posted this picture I created on excel, on Facebook and everyone that owns an Iphone is hating so bad. Funny to actually show them on paper how bad Galaxy S3 owns Iphone. I'm going to continue spreading the picture on all my friends wall.

    Loving my Galaxy S3 except the fact it doesn't have Jelly bean
    dude, i'm loving the s3 but u really gotta calm down. the ip4s is almost a year old. I'd be worried if the s3 was anywhere close in specs to the ip4s. a more realistic comparison should be the s3 and ip5.

    Not that this thread needs any more comments bashing anything, but I'd like to add my own comment. My wife has a 4s and I have an s3, and they are both great phones. I do mess with her about using the phone, but I see many reasons it can be so appealing. First, the apps are fairly secure to download from Apple. Second, walk into any major box store's mobile section and you are instantly inundated by all of the iOS accessories, and nice ones at that! Third, the OS is comfortable to use and very consumer friendly. That being said, the S3 has it's own perks that separate it from the rest of the pack, but I don't have to go into detail with them all due to this being the S3 forum.
    The point I'd like to make is that I am not going to rage quit my marriage because my wife likes a different mobile experience than I do. She likes iOS, I like android, you don't care what we like anyway. Compare till you are blue in the face, but please respect other people's right to appreciate and use what they want, as you would like the same from them even if they don't have the civility to respect you back.
    Lastly, let's argue about something that should be important to the entire world like when are the Browns going to catch a break?!

    The iPhone is a good phone and yes my sis and girlfriend both have iPhone's actually everyone in my girlfriend family has iPhone. The thing that I don't like about it is that it's so hyped up to being the best thing out there and they pin point all these great features but all those things have been already release it's just that apple has great marketing skills to show them off in a perfect way. I do hope iPhone 5 improves to something a lot better then the S3 because if they just highlight things we already have and everyone goes wild about it then that is going to tick me off . I'm just glad there are companies out there that truly bash the truth like t mobile finally showing people the speed comparison with their internet service (4g) to iPhone AT&T 3g..
    There are so many people out there that think their iPhone 4g is a 4G speed phone :banghead:I swear it is the funniest thing.

    Tonight I went out for dinner and a server stop me before I went to the rest one and asked me "hey is that the galaxy s3" I smiled and said yes he asked how the phone was and I just said one word "perfect" he responded "that's what everyone have been saying" I finished it off with "way better then her phone" as I point at my girls iPhone lol

    i have both an iphone4, and the GS3. just switched, and although i do love the GS3..

    one thing that people are discounting, is the overall quality of the experience. for me, android is still not as smooth and polished as iOS. i love the variety of features, and the options, but overall, iOS just had a leg up when it comes to having a user-friendly experience.

    this does not mean that android is worse, or that the iphone is better, it just means that there is still more for android to strive for. android is still more powerful, but i don't have to have to dig through 6 screens of menus to get to a feature, or selection that i had to know was there before i got there. iOS has this one down pat. their settings (although admittedly extremely limited), are straight forward and simple to navigate. i miss that from my iphone.

    i admit that having widgets, and tons of customization is great, and that android phones pwn iphones when it comes to specs. i love the huge screen on my GS3. i just still haven't gotten used to having to maneuver the phone everytime i want to do something with it. i can't just pick it up and use it if i need to do something.

    also, one thing that no one tells people who switch, is how clunky the phone program is in comparison to the iphone version. these smartphones are indeed phones, and it's just a little bit lackluster to have one that is just not solid in that respect.

    as a last thought, why is it that i now need android capable headphones when my iphone could use any headset out of the box? i have an expensive pair of over-ear headphones that are now useless unless i am in front of my comp

    the GS3 is an insanely powerful phone, it's just not perfect, or as much better than the iphone as people make it out to be. i love it, but i just don't want to keep getting beaten over the head with people who think that it makes all iphones obsolete. that's simply not true, and since you're currently comparing it to last years iphone, it's a bit unfair.

    i am going to keep my GS3, but i am also going to keep my new ipod (my old iphone). it's simply better at playing media anyways lol. sorry for the long post. hope that i contributed to the discussion

    I didn't know about the head phone thing. Is that only on the GS3? I was just on my head phones the other day and they were Sony ones and my wireless turtle beaches and they both worked.
    I get the whole point of having ease of user experience but when you have that you also lose ability of choice. I sometimes use my girls iPhone and find my self stuck because something is not integrated or I just don't have that option. It fine for most people the phone tells you what you should do but if you need to by pass that then you can't.

    The funniest thing I also compare my phone is my navigation. When ever I'm driving with a group of friends and we need to get to a location by navigation, they pull out their iPhone (most of them have one) and they try to give me navigation. I laugh at their dot on that map. :rolleyes: and then pull out my phone (larger screen ) and I have turn by turn navigation, voice and traffic but they are still so stubborn they tell me which way to go and I ignore them. The sad part is that sometimes I drive and I don't want to pull my phone out so I let them navigate and they either get me lost, I'm stuck in traffic, or I just get frustrated and I pull over to take my phone out to get their correctly.

    Lol I don't get how people love siri on their iPhone but literally never see a person use millions of people out their with iPhones I would expect to see one at least . When I had Google now I would use it all the time . Even in front of iPhone users to show them they can use it too.

    Your picture doesn't tell the whole story. I would question why Android devices need so much hardware power and still cannot give its users the same smooth, fluid experience as an iOS device. Even Project Butter falls short.

    Another mentioned iSheep. To me, Samsung fanatics are the true sheep. They continually buy broken hardware, then aggressively defend their purchase by attacking all who question them.

    Enjoy your Samsung iPhone. I'm sure it will bring you years of frustration.
    You have a point. I think what really matters most is user experience. Your device can be extremely powerful, but the user experience can be quite bad. I'm not saying that the SGS III has a bad user experience, but it happens. The processor n my iPhone is definitely lesser than that of the higher end Android devices from last year, but you would never be able to tell from using it.

    Exactly. My wife's iphone 4 is very competitive with my dual core Bionic / Gingerbread phone, which is itself faster than most android devices being used right now. These phones were direct competitors in late 2011. Better hardware and OS integration with the iPhone.

    Spec sheets just dont say much about actual experience and usability. Clearly, many dont care for big screen phones either. I prefer the 4-4.3 size, anything bigger is a nuisance.
