I use to think like that about Samsung. I'm not saying they are all that great. I have never owned a Samsung smart phone. But I have heard very good things about them as of late so I am willing to give them a try. I use to be an HTC fanboy, but they just don't meet my needs this year. I hear people complain about every phone. A person has to decide for themselves what phone will work for them or not. So we will see if I agree with you if get the GS3.
