I cant wait for Q4 when iPhone5 will likely launch. The offer they have given me, I have to take it up now before my contract expires...like 6 weeks

Plus, the phones are on offer for free..no hidden charges etc just 24 month commitment $50 a month for 3000 minutes of voice calls and 10GB data plan.

Battery life is though a major factor, the S3 has a huge ass battery but, the screen is also bigger...I have read reports that the battery life even in heavy usage all day (ie vid looping and web browsing) was 9-10 hours. On my iPhone 4, I have to give it perk me up charge at work...mid afternoon. All i would have done is listen to music through BT and occasional web surf.

So for me it probably will be S3...most likely..i have to look for reviews of S3 with GAMES!

PS- It also seems that cooked ROMs are already available for the S3 too!!
Then you DEFINITELY want an Android. When you plug the phone into your USB charger (hooked to PC), you get the option of
CHARGE ONLY
SYNC (FOr me it says HTC sync)
DISK DRIVE
USB TETHERING

Choose Disk drive, and then you can start dragging dropping anything you want, not only mp3s or vids, but programs, games, apps, etc. I said games because I have downloaded a game demo from my phone (wifi) then take it home and put it on my PC.

Android 4 (Ice cream sandwich) has GREATLY improved battery life. The new HTC Evo 4G LTE has some reviews about going 3 days with moderate usage (on 2000mah battery). Normal everyday usage on 9to5 job people go home with 82% batt life left (I took these from android central forums).

The total number of S3 preorders is more than double the total number of iphone 4s apple sold in its first weekend.

It's not like that on my SGS2. You have to go to settings>USB utilities>connect storage to PC then plug in the cable when promted. If you plug in the cable any other time, it tries to install the kies software. SGS3 may be different, but it seems like Samsung want people to use kies as it's probably easier for people with no computer file system knowledge. Anyway, it's a small hurdle and easy to live with - much better than having to sync with some bloated app I don't want on my pc.

ICS is very good (almost feels like the beta test is over for Android). If you aren't heavily invested in iDevices it would be an easy switch. MP3ing and gaming is fine on Android. If you wanted to do anything like Office, Android is kinda lame right now, but Google has just bought QuickOffice.

The S3 has some nice features, like recognising when you are looking at the screen, but I'd go for the HTC myself. :: Or wait for the iPhone 5, but that's just because of all the apps I already have and I really like how AppleTV works with everything.

I think it all comes down to if your favorite drink is Dr. Pepper or not...

I only have a choice only of iPhone 4S, Galaxy S3 or Note and has to happen in the next few weeks! So i cant opt for HTC or wait for iPhone 5.

The phones mentioned are the one only available on free offer. So far after playing around with a demo unit, I might opt for the S3.

This. Get a S3, it's what AlphaKeeshy has. ::

Unless you want to do the correct thing and get an iPhone 4S.

Getting a iPhonr 4S is the right thing? lol

I am going to have to play around with the android app shop as well...but er I like iPhones metal design and its smaller but, S3's OS is not bad either and I played some 3D games on it too and it was smooooth as crainger's Brazilian waxed bottom.

But also like Crainger's Brazilian waxed bottom, it is more than likely full of crap.

Get the 4S and have a Coke and a smile.
