Hey GS3 owners, I have an upgrade in November and am wondering what your thoughts are on the gs3 after owning it for a few months. I would get the Gnote 2 but Samsung is going to halt the releasing of their proprietary code so getting aosp to work will be much harder.

...and the best part is, it's FREE! Sure apple will gladly troubleshoot and fix your iPhone but for a fee.

Yet the norm for Nexus devices is to also have a non-removable battery and no expandable memory. Hehe. Love Nexus devices though!

So I had a pretty strange experience with my galaxy S3 tonight, it started freaking out at my neighbors house, the browser wouldn't respond so I pulled the battery and when I turned it back on there was a lock that was unlocked, and it said custom below it. I was shocked and I scoffed because I've not done anything to my phone yet,

Hey guys.. new to the xda board but no stranger to the online forum world.. it's only fitting my first post is in an iPhone bashing thread Only area I'd give it the upper edge is the display and fluidity of the UI.

Has anybody see the Blendtec video where they blend the iPhone 5 and Galaxy S3? The iPhone 5 literally shredded to pieces way before the GS3 did.

Idk...I really love my GS3's display and a customizable UI with widgets and live wallpapers

Came from Apple
My home is wired exclusively with Apple products and the Apple iPhone 4S was my first "Smartphone". I loved my 4S but after almost a year of owning it I began to feel very limited, this was about the time the Galaxy S3 was released. Now My first and only experience with Android was Gingerbread (so it was awful) and this soured my impression of Android. That was until I got bored with my iPhones limitations particularly on customization. So the S3 had been out awhile and gotten rave reviews and I decided to walk back into my local Verizon store after watching some Youtube videos about Android and give it another try, needless to say I was very happy with the look of the S3 as well as the feel of Android ICS.

So I made a choice to pick up the S3 on the spot and keep my 4S just in case I was disappointed. After 3 months of ownership I can proudly say I won't be going back to Apple for a mobile device for quite a long time. After downloading Nova Launcher and other applications I found I was able to build the phone to have it perform the way I want it to perform. This is a huge selling point for me, plus Google Play had all the apps I used in the itunes store plus a few of the apps that had been kicked out because they put a few of Apples native apps to shame and Apple didn't like that.

Last thing, When I had an iPhone I was one of those people who said, "I don't need a removable battery, that's so cheap." "Who needs an SD card? everything is in the cloud". I can say the S3 changed my perspective, I brought the 16gb S3 then bought a 32GB SD card. Saving me about $300 cause for an equal phone you have to shell out about that much more for a 32gb iphone. I also realized the value in a removable battery, I went through two 4S's in 1 year due to internal battery issues and unlike the S3 where I can just pop it out and buy a new one and solve the problem. Apple made me send it back to them for a refurbished phone.

I also just got a Nexus 7 I have the iPad 1 and iPad 2, but I like the mobility of the 7 inch tablet and again the FREEDOM of ANDROID over iOS so it makes my NEXUS 7 the better tablet for me. Spec for Spec it does not compare to the iPad hell even optimized app for app it doesnt, but it's ANDROID platform just blows iOS away and that's why I now find myself using that as my daily driver over my iPAD. So for me it's Apple at home and Android on the go.
