Finally decided to put my iPhone 5 down and get a GS3. I have 30 days to see if I want to keep it. I so far I like it better than my iPhone 5 but the verdict still out. Battery on the S3 is way better too
I had the S3 on AT&T when it 1st came out for 2 weeks and its a very nice device!Finally decided to put my iPhone 5 down and get a GS3. I have 30 days to see if I want to keep it. I so far I like it better than my iPhone 5 but the verdict still out. Battery on the S3 is way better too
Oops. I do have to admit, the size of the S3 is impressive, but other features of the phone seemed flimsy or gimmicky or unpolished. The iPhone 5 just looked and felt better. Everything looked clean and polished. Plus it has an Apple on the back. If the S3 had a cheeseburger on the back that may have influenced my decisionI do ha
Finding the device that fits your needs & wants is what it's all about!Ok so it's being a few days, here are some of my impressions. 1st, yes, the S3 build quality is nowhere near my iPhone 5. I do like the bigger screen on the GS3 better, iOS is more polished but it's also simpler. I like how I am able to use the GS3 in ways I only dreamed of with iOS (including a jailbroken iOS). Only time will tell if I'll reactivate my iPhone 5. I tried to switch to Android before and the fun factor wore off after a while and I found myself craving the simple interface that iOS provides. For now, I am having fun with my GS3!
Cases aren't permanent, so it doesn't matter what you cover it with. I think they are referring to the build quality and types of parts that are used in the phone's casing.I have no branding on the front of my phone. Funny how some people knock on Android plastic phone and then cover their iPhone with ugly plastic cases LMAO
A) I was not knocking on Android plasticI have no branding on the front of my phone. Funny how some people knock on Android plastic phone and then cover their iPhone with ugly plastic cases LMAO
I apologize I was not trying to be rude.A) I was not knocking on Android Plastic
B) I never have had and never will have a case on any device, iPhone, Android, ect..
C) Why the attitude? I gave ---> my <--- opinion and said I can deal with the plasticky look & feel..
E) Your phone does not say 'SAMSUNG' on the front?
The same difference between someone with cardiomyopathy and someone with a healthy heart. You may not be able to tell by looking at their skin, but there is a definite difference in the parts.It does matter, what is the difference between a plastic phone in a case and an aluminum, phone in a case? NONE! Actually the plastic phone would probably survive a fall better. Anyway I switch phones every year (iPhones) so in my case all I care is about my phone lasting, for at least a year lol
Here is a good drop test video where the S3 failed horribly and the iPhone 5 survived..The same difference between someone with cardiomyopathy and someone with a healthy heart. You may not be able to tell by looking at their skin, but there is a definite difference in the parts.
Drop performance is not the only factor to consider when looking at build quality, but since you mentioned it, the iPhone 5 fared better than the SGS3 in the drop test videos I saw.
Not everyone covers their phone in a case as you say..Performance wise it doesn't matter matter what the phone is made of, I'm saying looks are irrelevant when people cover their phones in plastic anyway. I already admitted that my iPhone 5 is way better in build quality anyway. I I'm not even sure I'm keeping the GS3 but my desicion either way is based solely on OS preference.
