And with that said, I have a really hard time seeing any major differences between the 4s and the 5 other then size so iPhone is basically selling a 2.5 year old phone with some few upgrades.



Yeah, the lag was why I bought an iPhone and I loved it and I still like my phone ALOT. But just as you said, the new JellyBean is really smooth and a tried out the Galaxy S2 with the JB release a couple of days ago and I honestly didn't feel any difference in smoothness and fluidity which is also why I'm going back to Android next time I buy a phone.



The ecosystem is really nice but there are too few updates and too few new things that would actually make it attractive for me.

The APPS, yes, I prefer the iOS apps but I can still find every APP important app I need on the Android market as well so I don't really care about some games.



Well, you're underrating the Android market, it has improved a lot during the last year and other then a couple of few games I don't really see a major difference.

The S3 similar to the 5? c'mon dude, that's just ignorant. I can see the argument vs the 4S and 5, but the S3???????

Haven't tried the new Jelly Bean, but the other version still lagged when compared to iOS.

Few things for iOS ecosystem? dude, they dominate the entire accessory market, you have Airplay built in to things, there's more devices that are iOS compatible than Droid, the app market comes out first and often exclusively for iOS, if you go to most places it is far more likely that they'll offer iOS compatibility >>> Droid, that's just off the top of my head. Hell even some of the Google apps are better on iOS than they are in Droid.

Whenever I go check out an app review, or announcement I notice that 8/10 times it's an App Store exclusive. Some may probably maybe come to Droid, and even then it will be late, and not supported as well (aka bad half assed app), but many more will remain for the iOS with no plans of coming to Droid.

Again, I'm an appaholic, I don't expect everybody to be like me, but the amount of times Droid users wish they could have some of the apps I have is endless. They always feel left out when they can't get certain apps, or they can't use Airplay etc.etc.

And we haven't even touched on the updates.

No sense in getting the S3 when the S4 is almost out. Not a fan of the Nexus series after working with Sprint and working directly with the last two Nexus'. The Galaxy series is a fantastic series, but you're sacrificing battery capacity and reception quality. However, supposedly the S4 takes care of all of that.

The iPhone 5 feels cheap in your hands. My favorite iphone has been the 4 series.


Check out the HTC One if you have AT&T, Sprint, or T-Mobile. Specs look amazing.

Default Re: Buying a new phone, keep it real with me.

ATM I have no phone, my blackberry that I have been using for 2 years finally died for good 2 days ago

Should I wait till march 14th (release of S4) and be without a phone for 3 weeks or just get the S3 right now? Im with Sprint right now, but if I switch to Tmobile which I probably will, I get the S3 free w/2yr contract. And the thing about the S4 is, idk if it will have any problems with it and on top of that, I might have to pay up front money + the 2 year contract.

I'm currently using an Iphone 5 right now, and I can tell you that it's the best smartphone that I had have. I'm having no problems whatsoever, and the speaker is fantastic. I can listen to my music clearly and loudly.

Uh… oh…. didn't you get the memo?

Iphone SUCKS and it's completely inferior to any Droid phone. Besides, only Apple f@gots use them.

I'm just giving my opinion based on my experience. I didn't even read anything you posted. Why bother when you aint no expertise?

hey guys thanks for the input.

since i have a Macbook (yes i know, wackbook) ill probably be leaning toward an iPhone. That way all my apps and iCloud stuff can be easily relayed.

Just wanted to know if any of the phones were that good to be worth the switch.

I given too much rep in the last 24 hours, as soon as I can I will.

Same reason I've stuck with the iPhone, Macbook pro, iPad. The iPhone 4S is everything I've wanted in a smart phone. The 5 is an upgrade, but a small one and you need a different cord (minor inconvenience I know). For me right now there's just not enough to compel me to upgrade from the 4S.

Give me the quick rundown. Should I get a Iphone 5 or S3? Or is there something better (Z10? HTC?)

for rep.
if you can, wait a few months. There are some amazing new phones coming down the pipe. The htc one was just revealed a few days ago. The Google/Motorola X phone, the Galaxy S4 and the Note3 will be out by this summer. if you need to get an iphone, wait for the iphine 5s


Wait for it if you can. Real talk.
