Is this because Samsung showcased the S4?

I am tempted by the S4. If it weren't for the plastic I'd be jumping ship.
Et tu, iPhonewarrior? I am aghast. If the plastic is all that's keeping you on our side, maybe it's time you go.

I dedicate this song to you as a tear drips slowly down my cheek...

The plastic cheap feeling usually (subjective opinion) goes away after you use it and realize that lighter isn't cheaper, or once you otterbox it hah. I would have to say try it out, use an open mindset, enjoy the other side for a few months!

I've grown to expect a certain standard when buying and using a phone. The S3 looks nice, but feels cheap. And from the looks of things it may be the same for the S4. Just my opinion.

I've got an S3. Recently upgraded from an S2 (work phones). Screens nice, that's probably about it :)

I've also got a Nexus 7, which I love using due to it's size. Sometimes i'll find myself going for the Nexus instead of my iPad 3...

The 3G and 3GS must have driven you crazy. ;)
I was an iSheep then, so whatever Apple told me to do, I did. I've still got the original iPhone, I hoped they would have kept the aluminium through the first few generations of iPhone.

Have you used an S3, John? I have, and I didn't think it felt cheap. It felt like a phone, much as the 3G and 3GS did. Like I said before, it was the software that killed the experience for me.

An iSheep? Wow. You just insulted at least half the membership here., including me. :D

I thought we didn't use terms like that here.

Read my other post, I own an S3. It's an alright phone and like I said the screens nice, battery isn't the best and it was slightly bendy. I've just been spoilt with having an aluminium and glass phone. :p
