Default New Galaxy S3

Just wanted to say I picked up my first android phone Saturday, the Galaxy S3,
and its amazing. I've had just about every iphone except for the 4s and think the galaxy is leaps and bounds better than my old iphones. I wanted a bigger screen and not just a longer screen so I decided against the 5. With the experience I'm having so far, i may never get another iphone again.

Hi ! I'm also new here, i've had the iPhone, iP3G, iP3GS and the iP4. My wife has the 4S so you can imagine this wasn't an easy decision to make. I use my phone for everything including planning my day and keeping me organized. I couldn't be happier with the GS3.

I do have a major issue with battery life but i'm trying to work through it.. hopefully i can resolve it and rate this phone 5*. As of right now i can barely make it to 3:00pm without the battery dying on me.

Welcome andrewcdub, glad to hear you are enjoying your new S3

Hopefully you will enjoy your time here at AF and we can help you with any questions you have in the future!

Enjoy your stay and thanks for joining!

EDIT: Welcome to you too Jabanero, glad to have you in the community

Maybe i can help you with your problems! This link provides ways to save your battery life for your phone

Also, i don't know if your phone has Google now, but i would suggest to turn it off, here are directions how to: Turn off Google Now Directions

Also in the Maps application, go into the settings (the 3 vertical dots) and under Lattitude, turn those off too.

If you have any more questions feel free to ask away

Same here! I had the iPhone 3g when it was brand new, then got an iPhone 4 and had it for two years. Finally just picked up a GS3 a week ago and I love it!
