I'm happy with my s3. And if your into rooting and installing roms, it's a great one to play with. Odin makes this phone unbrickable.

The note is just too big, IMHO.

I'm a.d.d so I like to change to something new every few months, unfortunately I'm out of upgrades.. I ran stock touchwiz for the last month and installed an AOSP room last night so I'm happy again for the time being.

Owning the S3 for a while now it really makes me wish Verizon will carry another Nexus device. I was addicted to the S3 at first but it kind of just wore off now. If the Verizon Galaxy Nexus did not have so many flaws in it I would have never left it.

There is no experience like a Nexus experience!

Between the phones you are asking about, if the size of the Note 2 does not bother you then I would go for that. If it is to big, which for me it is I would then go to the S3. Wouldn't even consider the DNA. Actually at this point in time I wouldn't really consider anything from HTC. They have really went to crap and it just seems like they are recycling their same phones over and over again.

If you are looking to run a stock phone for awhile, I would wait for the S4, but if you want root and have pages and pages of ROMs to continually try, then the S3 is the way to go.

For the guys saying there getting great battery how many ours are you getting?

This phone is awesome! I haven't been able to put it down. I'm using liquidsmooth ROM and I love it. I just wish I could get more battery life but just like I said I haven't put it down since buying it.

The GS3 is great, I have the otterbox commuter and can still easily stick it in my pocket, the note 2 not so much however they are both great phones. If I could choose now, i;d wait and see what the specs on the Ubuntu Phone will be like and compare them to the GS4.

Honestly, I'm in the same boat as you.

For me the battery life on the S3 and DNA is actually really good and the reviews I watch seemed like people who use their phones more than me still get a full days usage. (I don't neccesarily games on my phone, I just like having it customized and keeping up with social networks)

Also coming from a TB I have a 32GB Micro SD that could come in handy, which I will not be able to use on the DNA. For me the skins won't matter much, I do prefer Sense of TW but if I get the S3 I will probably install a Liquid Smooth 4.2.2 on it (or the note 2 if I get it into my budget).

I do LOVE the DNA's screen, but being a single carrier device it's dev support grows very slowly. They just got S-off a week ago meaning AOSP is likely coming in the near future but it seems like it will be slow.

My only gripe is, the S3 is already a year old; so hardware wise it's going to be dominated by every other phone coming out now (starting with the HTC One, too bad it's not on VZW )
