you guys got most the pros and cons pretty much right.
I think having had an iPhone for many years and now having a top-quality Android device, you really get to see that there are many pretty advantages to each device. I dont think the Apple fanboys or the "Fandroids" have a perfect case to make for each device. With the GS3 I sacrifice a few things that I loved about iPhone but the things and possibilities I get in return with Android / GS3 kind of blow me away.
but I'm learning there are some shortcuts to some of the "too many clicks" issues:
if you go into Contact and want to call someone quickly, the common gripe is you select a name and instead of it launching a call to that name, you go into the contact details. there are Swipe Left and Swipe Right features in Contacts. Look up a contact and Swipe Right and it should launch straight into a call, Swipe Left and it will start a text to that name.
I had a 3gs for a couple years and like most I liked it alot, but the battery ended up going funky and I was out of space. There really are only 2 gripes I have about Android over iphone
First is using it in the car, Iphones/Ipods just work better for this, to be able to just plug into my stereo USB and it charge and play music while showing the song info and being able to control from the radio itself is the biggest thing I miss, so much so I just leave my iPod in the car for my music and dont use the S3...sad...The other thing I miss is Apptrackr ...They have every app there is for iPhones, I have never not been able to find the app I want. The Android underground is lacking on that side of things, the options like blapk and all that is pretty ghetto. Torrents are not that much of a help either. But I suppose this is a whole other thread....I pretty much love everything else and Im glad I switched
The pros out weigh the cons for sure and I will not be going back to Iphone ever. I just hope that the whole car integration thing can be improved so I can ditch the ipod...
