Hi all Silver surfer here . Had an i phone , and swapped for this Galaxy S3 , also got a Galaxy 10.1 tablet . Use the tablet for a bit of research (telegraph Xword mostly!!) Phone for - well - phoning - Noooo - Really? Tablet just a bit slow perhaps but oK . Phone - not the clearest speaker , but overall . I'm suited . All rest of family with i phones , but not tempted to change back Forgot carrier - Vodafone , they have very good coverage here and I can't remember a dropped connection in many years . Not about to change my carrier either .
