I'm sick of dealing with samsung/verizon (who knows who's to blame) and the sh*tty updates that break more than they fix.

Funny though, on the iPhone forums tons of iPhone people are going to the Galaxy Nexus or Galaxy II and raving about how much better it is than their iPhone.

Different things for different people I guess. I was just sick of all the issues with my fascinate... stupid things like it taking screenshots all the time or NEVER being able to get a GPS lock. The OS degrading to the point where I had to use ODIN and reflash the stock firmware on it (only once but could use it again... if I still used the phone). Getting to carry a spare battery around with me cause if I had to use my phone for anything useful for more than 30 mins, the battery took a nosedive.

After using the iPhone for a week I can't believe all of the stupid sh*t I used to put up with on my fascinate.

Thanks Samsung. You may make super awesome screens and cutting edge devices but you dropped the ball with the fascinate. Unfortunately that was my first experinece with smartphones and it was a bad one.

I've been begging my wife to try to get a used iPhone 4 or get one of our relatives eligible for an upgrade to get her a 4S. In any event, when the iPhone 5 comes out she'll either get my 4s or she'll get the 5. I can't wait.
Thats my exact point.....and oh the screen shots....drives me crazy.
I think Im swithing just after Christmas. Im gonna just add a line, pay 299 for the 4s 32GB and be done with Android. I played with the 4s again today at BB and the more I get familiar with it, the more I like it and see it doing exactly what I want.
Thos iPhone users who switched.......to each their own. I know its human nature to think the other device is better.....but I'll bet those same people in about 6 to 8 months will be wishing they never did it.
The phone I played with today....I opened whatever it is that shows the items currently open or running.....because it was a store phone, I counted 23 items open at the bottom while I was messing with it. You do that to my Fascinate and it would explode all over the wall.
I closed all that crap and it was cruising.

Im sure there will be some things Ill miss like you said.....but I want a phone that works all the time.....correctly, when I want it.
Im looking forward to all the cool, integrated devices made buy everyone for Apple products. You wont find anything to dock a droid anything in.
I have an alarm clock/stereo Id finally be able to dock my phone in.

I was worried about it not being 4g.....got 2 friends with a droid charge and HTC that runs 4g...yeah its fast, but real unstable....so who cares.....I got 25Mb internet at home. Plus, Im in more places with no 4g anyway....
