    This is mainly for current Sprint customers or people that will be switching to Sprint.

    I will probably get the GSIII. My upgrade is available on 6/1, and I could get the E4GLTE as soon as I wanted, but the device doesn't "wow" me. It's basically just a hardware upgrade to other phones that are out there. Doesn't really do anything special. The GSIII has some cool features, but nothing seemingly groundbreaking. My plan of action is to wait until the Sprint version of the GSIII is announced (specs and whatnot) and if I haven't heard anything of the iPhone5 by the time it releases, I'll probably get the GSIII. If the iPhone5 is going to come out and is at least an equal device than the GSIII, I'll probably get that. I love android and everything, but iOS is much more stable than android, and a working OS is more important to me than a customizable one.

    My upgrade date is Aug 1 so I'm going to wait and see what kind of real world user experience you guys post here on the forums and decide from there.

    How ironic you ask that. I actually posted the same poll at the same time in the Evo LTE forum expecting different results. Click HERE to see the poll and many more comments.

    I'm due for an upgrade but not entirely sure about EVO LTE or SGIII. I'm considering holding out for the nexus devices due "around" Thanksgiving.

    Galaxy s3. I've seen enough of evo lte. I may have to wait as my upgrade doesn't hit until July 1.

    I'm kind of torn between the two. I like some of the hardware features of the Evo (kickstand, physical camera button, probably a better radio than Samsung, awesome car dock app) but I don't like potentially waiting until 2013 to get LTE on Sprint. I might just switch to Verizon/AT&T and go with the S3. But I'm going to wait until they release details about what the US versions will be like before I make a decision.

    surprising response from the HTC camp. But its still the same rubbish about heft = better build. Some evo 3d even got the balls to say HTC builds better phones than Samsung through and through. Well you can't blame them for because they didn't know any better.

    I'm sitting here with my OG EVO and my contract is up, so my upgrade is burning a hole in my pocket! I'm so ready to get a new phone, I almost pre-ordered the EVO LTE, but I held off. I would really like to try the GS3 and if I don't like it, I'll return it and get the EVO. But, man, the wait is killing me!! At least announce the US version and when it's going to be available, so there is a finishing line out there! If they hold off much longer, I would bet people are going to just say to hell with it and get something else. Or, if it's too long, another "latest and greatest" phone will be announced and people will pass on the GS3 as it will be out of date almost immediately.

    Just give us a hint Sammy!!!

    Since I am sticking with Sprint and S3 is probably going to arrive in 4Q/2012 or later according to some people who talked to Sprint CS in the Evo LTE thread. EVO LTE has better build anyway so I am going with EVO LTE.

    You can't trust sprint CS. Just got off the phone and was told late June release and pre ordering starting near the middle of the month. Everytime you call it's different. You pretty much just have to wait and see. CS really doesn't have a clue.

    I just canceled my Evo LTE pre order from Best Buy since they changed their trade in program last minute. I want to try something different, but the phone did not have the wow factor for me.

    What I really want is the GNote, but the SGSIII could hold me down for a while.

    What change did they make to their trade in program?

    Well my local BB lost their pawn license according to the Mobile manager, so they could not buy my phone according to him via DE law. They would help me setup to send it in to their processing center, and I would have to wait for the gift card. Then I would have to get the store to apply it to my purchase.

    So, I guess the phone was not meant to be my next purchase.

    My current Epic Touch is a sick sick phone, switched from an Evo 3D and then a Nexus S 4G. Despite liking the Sammys more than the Evo, I miss the radio for calling and especially for 3G that was in the Evo 3D. Hopefully with the S4 Snapdragon the radios will be better in the Galaxy S 3. If not, I'm gonna begrudgingly have to give my business to HTC.

    If the GPS reception is as poor on the GSIII as it is on my GSII, I'll be getting the HTC Evo. If on the other hand, they finally fix the reception problem my GSII has where it's proven to be totally unreliable when I need it most to find a route somewhere on the go, if that's fixed with the GSIII, I"ll be looking to get one.

    GSII...great phone EXCEPT for the GPS reception issue.

    Does anybody know if that's been addressed with the new Galaxy phone?? I'd really like to know.

    No questions, GSIII. Since I started wanting a new phone back in November there were only three things that I needed in my phone: SD slot, NFC, and a removable battery. I really want to get an EVO LTE, but the lack of a removable battery is a deal breaker to me.

    EVO all the way! Never have I had a phone that locked on to gps almost instantly, wifi and 3g radios are great. I'm coming from the Evo 3d and I must admit I wanted my wife's E4gt, it was superior in every, except radios. That's a killer for me, she could never get a gps lock we always had to use my navigation. The wifi was also horrible as was 3 and 4g. Now if they fixed these then you have a battle on your hands. The screen on this thing is amazing, this is the happiest I've been with any phone.
    PS: My wife will be waiting for the GS III so I'll be able to mess with it, looking forward to it! The only way to make a fair comparison is to hold both of them.
    From my long awaited and totally worth it EVO LTE!

    My first choice is actually the Note, and yes I'll wait for it. Current second choice is the S III.

    I haven't really seen anybody use the keyboard on the GS3, the samsung keypad on GS2 was absolutely terrible. I know there's a myriad of options available on the mark..Google Play Store, but I just wish a stock keyboard would work wonderfully (it should, IE: ICS keyboard). It also tells me a lot about how much effort these companies put into focusing on real use capabilites of the phone and not just marketing gimmicks. But that's just me most likely. I really want to love the GS3, I really do, but as mentioned those radios..oh those radios. Hopefully we get a better design on Sprint, such as that sweet looking Asian version or else probably Iphone 5 for me (PUKE) but keep my GS2 as a "toy" whenever I get bored of iOS (which should be soon I venture to guess). Honestly, I'm not sure if the GS3 is THAT HUGE of an improvement over the GS2, whereas it is very obvious the EVO LTE is far far superior to the 3D. Either way, both look like great phones and whoever gets either is going to be happy.
