I was nearly ready to get my first iPhone/smartphone, (I know, I am way out of synch with the rest of the US) when I came across the Samsung Galaxy either G3 or S3. You can tell that I have zero experience with smartphones, especially Android smartphones. I cannot remember if it was the G lll or S lll that is the latest Galaxy phone that has received great reviews. I ask for some help from people with a lot more knowledge than I have about this phone. I looked at the phone in detail (yea and I still can't remember which one it was), read several reviews on the smartphone, and checked to see who the carriers are. I would like to be able to have a smartphone that allows me to use it as a mobile hotspot too. One great benefit I had when I purchased a MIFI2200 when I signed up with Verizon was the ability to use my laptop on road trips. If there are some people who want to educate me on which of the Galaxy phones is the latest one and what you think about me as a new smartphone user going with this Galaxy smartphone opposed to the iPhone 4S (which I was ready to finally go out and get one about a week ago). If carriers can be discussed in these forums, I am interested in hearing if Sprint or one of the other carriers that have the latest Android Galaxy smartphone is better over the others. Hearing that Sprint is a better carrier for people wanting to use their phone as a mobile hotspot, I think primarily because they have not put the constraints on the amount of GB their plan can have. Thanks in advance!
