I had a thread which asked for help to keep my S3. Great responses. In that thread I basically said that I'd give my S3 some time and get to know her a bit. It's been almost a week now and there are MANY things that I like. PROS: 1. GREAT SCREEN!!!! 2. GREAT SCREEN!!!! 3. I really like that I can schedule when my exchange (work email). I get to tell it when I will recieve email 4. I really like my Live Aquarium wall paper. 5. The notifications in the important areas are clean, useful, and seemingly very user friendly. Calendar, Email, Text and App Updates. 6. I really like the camera operation. All the reviews say that the cam in my 4s is a scratch better... But I'm not seeing it. 7. When I'm in a good 4G area, LTE is AWESOME!!!! 8. I've got NAV back (google). It's awsome. 9. To a degree, I do like all the flexibility. 10. LOVE that most of the apps I use are free. MUCH more expensive in the App Store from apple. CONS: 1. The accuracy of my typing is... WELL it SUCKS on the S3 when compared to my 4s. I realize that it's me that's not accurate, but the 4s is extremely forgiving and seemingly smarter as to what I wanted to say. The keyboard is bigger on the S3, but not even in the same ball park (IMO) of the 4s. 2. Too many menus, sub-menus, and paths you need to memorize in order to get to the different menus in different apps. This is only a problem if you simply want to use a phone. 3. The battery, well in my opinion... It just sucks. I've got everything off that can be off, only use GPS location services (no verizon or google), have picasa turned off etc. etc. For my normal use, it doesn't get me through the day. Yes, I've cycled the phone a few times on and off. I've NEVER had that issue with my 4s. EVER! It's bad enough that I tend NOT to use my phone because of battery concerns and so that I can last the entire day. 4. There are times when opening and changing apps/tasks that the phone is a hair sluggish. Not a lot, but enough to notice. Almost like when you have not been on your desktop for a bit and when you come back it has to wake up. 4s... never happens. 5. Looking at the S3's screen outside is pretty much sad. As beautiful as it is inside, it's equally as bad outside. The 4s isn't perfect but definitely a cut above when I'm outside. 6. I have to pay for visual voice mail. 4s has free visual voice mail built in to the phone... don't ask me why. 7. Apps are free, but DEFINITELY not as refined. Concerning number of apps in both stores... I think it's not that big of a difference to matter. Just wish that the apps for the Android phones were less buggy. I mean it seems as if there are quirks in every single apps. Far less issues with the apps for the Iphone. All in all there are 2 things that may have kicked me off the Android cliff. If I can't figure something out in the next couple days, the 4s gets turned back on. Everything else (Cons), I can live with and quite frankly the Screen (inside) makes up for sooooo many other issues. My top 2 issues: 1. Typing is the worst! For me, this might be the biggest issue. Not sure If I'll get accustomed to it and it will be a non-issue.... Don't know. 2. This battery thing is really a problem for me. I've read about people going 2 days, people saying do this and do that.... or your phone is the problem... I dont' want a huge battery with a new back plate. Simply make the battery last longer! I can't trade so-so 4g in Las Vegas for bad battery life. Side note: Even back in the day, the forums and different Android communities have always been saying "wait till this update or that update comes out". I remember when everybody was waiting for Froto. ICS is here and now it's wait for JB. I'm not sure this will ever stop. Finally, I seem to be back where I started.... This new Samsung is AWESOME. It's where phones should be going!. The android system holds it back. The 4s ui is still simple, and almost an extension of my mind (at times). Apple is still TOO restrictive, and they don't have enough NEW product launches... They get boring. Basically, the perfect cellular device still hasn't been made. ARGH!!!!!:banghead: I REALLY want to get through my top 2 issues. I'll continue to work on it through this weekend, research and hopefully solve them. If not, it's back to BIG BROTHER Thanks for listening.
