Would you want the Samsung phone's "cool" feature?

I don't guess I've ever used a widget. Honestly if I didn't have an iPhone I would go with a windows phone before a droid.

I always kinda chuckle at that commercial because they trot that one little thing out and are supposed to make us think that we are so "un-cool" for not being able to do that. Where are all of the other features?

So rad man. I wonder how long it'll take to grow back, or are you gonna keep it short?
I dunno what I'm doin yet. I have had it short for a couple years now. But I've been letting it go lately. Thinking of doing it again. I miss it.

Some people act like widgets are a necessity. Honestly I don't miss them all that much. I did like having a weather widget on my home screen but that was the only one I ever used. The only widgets I'd like to see Apple introduce are a wifi an Bluetooth toggle that you can set anywhere on your home screen or secondary screens to quickly turn them on or off. They could even put them in the notification tray. I'm surprised after all these years Apple hasn't implemented a way to easily access these without having to dig into the settings app every time

The big screen is so great, that's why they are releasing one with a smaller screen like the iPhone 5!

Yeah I wouldn't want a larger screen than the iPhone 5 on a phone. If you want bigger get an iPad. Lol

I really don't get this at all. Samsung can't resist putting out a new model every few months. I'm waiting for the mini Note to come out in a few months, it'll be about .67 mm smaller than the mini S3.

I have a Samsung Galaxy Nexus and I never use that feature. I guess they had to include something to make it different. Don't like it myself. Neither do I like the idea of NFC and Google Wallet. Too insecure, in my opinion.

Apple should come out with a commercial where a group of friends at Starbucks are enjoying their lunch, while the odd friend out gets their Android phone hijacked by those exploits going around now. :)

I think they should make a commercial with people in rehab for overextending their fingers to reach the other end of their screens... Lol
