    I just switched from Iphone 4 to GS3 and my wife was deciding between upgrading to the Iphone 5 or getting the GS3 too.
    Just helped my wife make the same decision...one other nice thing about the having multiple GS3's in the house is you can use S-Beam to transfer photos/videos to each other wirelessly. And she *seriously* wanted the bigger screen. The iphone5 screen is just a waste....all the extra pixels for....one extra row of icons???? :-P
    She's adapting to it....the few apps she had on the iphone were also on android so it was easy. She mostly uses it for a phone/email/web browser, and web browsing on a bigger screen is just better. But she's also playing w/ the neat Samsung S-* tricks too, so she's enjoying it so far. She won't install custom roms or go nuts replacing launchers and home screens, but she did like the widgets concept as being more useful than friggin' icons on the desktop :-)

    Mine used a touch screen for 2 days and went back to blackberry too. Lol. But she is looking to buy a smart phone soon. The iPhone keeps calling to her. But I think most of that is marketing crap.

    My wife thinks the s3 is just too big, and wouldn't seriously entertain the thought of getting one. She got iPhone 5. I think I'll just taunt her for the next 2 years with my android supremacy so she makes the right decision next time.

    I agree and am finding the exact same thing, but there are some simple things that android does that would be used by her. Sharing of things is huge. So many options. File compatability is also huge. SwiftKey keyboard and you are all set.

    You could set up her S3 to look just like an iPhone and she would have everything she could need. Plus a nice big screen.

    I could, but it's her phone. She's the one that has to live with it. Plus she's pretty invested in the Apple world. I would have pushed harder if this was a decision made from "scratch" so to speak. But she already likes her Iphone, no real reason to switch. That was my point, switching should be because you are excited by the prospect of what you can do with Android, or because you are sick of the limitations of IOS.

    The thing too is that neither phone is perfect, nothing is. I have issues getting my GS3 to work with my bluetooth in my motorcycle helmet. The Iphone works without issue. If I talked her into the SG3 then I would feel like I had to defend it anytime she had an issue. I'd rather she make the choice and we both enjoy our phones. I don't want to be "selling" the phone for the next two years.

    That's funny. Mine went from an iPhone 3GS — to the Galaxy Note !! Loves everything about it; the huge display for web browsing; recipes; email; notes; pics & gallery, plus the stylus pen w/ the ability to write on pictures before sending them, and write your notes or emails, etc.-etc.
    Btw . . . she swore that she was gonna stick with Apple and always upgrade to a newer iPhone.

    I can write on pics too. I bet n a month she won't use that s pen. it's like a stylus, u use it for a while then stop cuz it's a pain n the butt getting it out. I'm glad she likes it. Samsung makes good products. I had a Samsung that was dropped n 3 toilets, left n the rain for 2 weeks, it wasn't activated, but it still came on......

    Oh man you are speaking the truth my friend. My wife's contract is just about up and all her friends have iPhones and go on about how they love it. She likes to poke fun at me now and again because I am such a Android zealot, but I find it really funny because when I speak to her friends about their iPhones, they really don't even know how to use them. I show them things on them all the time and they just look at me blinking and say wow! iPhones are amazing! Then I show them something on my Android and they go "it does that?, How come my iPhone doesn't do that?". and I have to tell them because it's not an Android.

    A friend of hers had just got the S3 and was showing it to us at a party we were at the other day and she said she would never buy an iPhone again after using the S3. She loves it. I installed SwiftKey on it for her at the party and she was showing everyone how cool it was. All the iPhone users were asking about installing it on their phones. I had to let them know that it wasn't possible {snicker} It was a pretty cool thing to happen as a lot of her friends use iPhones.

    Regardless, if I convince my wife to get a S3 or something else she will blame me every time she can't do something and say she should have got an iPhone. I almost think it could be a good thing for her to try the iPhone. That way every time I tell her that it can't do something I can let her know that my Android can. Maybe I'm a mean husband. LOL.

    Hey everyone. Chirp in on this thread if you have time. What is the best sized device for you? With the iPhone reference, I am trying to see if a smaller high end device is what we want or are we loving the big phones like the Galaxy Note II? http://forums.androidcentral.com/and...nd-device.html

    LOL. That's funny. I think the stylus is something that some people appreciate and others don't. I had one on a old UST StarCom phone http://image.cellphones.ca/images/ph...700-full-1.jpg and I loved using it even though you couldn't do half of what you can with the Note 2. I like that it has been resurrected. If we can do things with it that make our lives better then so be it.

    Oh yeah? So, hell_on_heels (btw, are those 5.5, 6 or 7 inchers? ), you "had a Samsung that was dropped n 3 toilets, left n the rain for 2 weeks," huh? Wow! Hmmm. That's...well, that's amazing. I have to hand you that.

    But . . .

    I once had a cell phone (my first, back in 1989), that was so primitive I had to set this hubcap on a track up high so it would roll down and into a vortex where it went around and around before dropping through a hole and falling down and hitting a pan which landed against and triggered a cuckoo clock, and when the cuckoo popped out, it pushed this little weight that fell on a lever that hit the bulb of a horn, which tilted a little platform so a hamster could run out and jump on a treadmill which spun a graduated set of gears that turned a bicycle wheel with little sprockets sticking out of it that arranged an old telephone dial to dial my Grandmother. . . .

    . . Hello? Who's there?. . . .

    And when she answered, it closed an electrical loop which pulled the trigger of a pop gun that hit a helium tank which inflated a balloon that expanded really big before it burst, scattering ping pong balls everywhere that naturally scared the dog sleeping on the kitchen linoleum causing him to run really fast in place, transmitting a vibration through the linoleum floor to the drainboard where it shook the egg that was balancing on a spoon and the egg would fall down and land right in the hole of a full roll of toilet paper activating a butterfly lever which flipped a switch that sent out two mechanical robot hands that dropped a bowl of Jell-O out a window and onto the back covered porch landing on one side of an old scale so the other side shot up knocking-over a broom handle that would fall sideways turning on the knob of a hot plate that a chicken was standing on causing it to fly off and onto a keyboard with a corn kernel on the letter Q and when the chicken pecked the Q key it sent an electrical current through the airwaves (one of the very first primitive OTA cellular radio signals) to a Jerry-rigged radio-controlled starter on an old antique generator at the foot of one of The Great Northwest's earliest cell tower Transmission Control Headquarters (commonly known as a: CTTCH), triggering a mostly simultaneous transmission of a walloping 1G AMPS signal. . .but it still came on so somehow it gave me a mostly pretty good signal for approx. 20-30 miles each side of the I-5 Corridor!
