Default Re: iPhone 4s or Samsung Galaxy S3 or Samsung Galaxy Note? Which should I go for.....

No choice in time to upgrade as stated earlier. It had to be now or forfeit a free phone.

So I got a Galaxy S3

Pretty much happy with it after 2 days of light use

Right now is a horrible time to upgrade.
How is the Galaxy phone getting another update?

3 day usage update...absolutely impressed! Mini round up...

damn bloody good phone. 2 days usage one one charge! No BT headset though. Some wifi, browsing, gaming, few calls , whatapp, etc ...i am so glad to get rid of iPhone 4.

Browsing is fast and equal to the iphone. What does set this device apart is the huge ass screen! more to read and web content seems to fit just right in landscape mode. Flash! Thats right this phone has flash support! (although, adobe will stop supporting flash on android in August).

Phone reception is better in terms of I can get a clean signal in areas where I used to have problems in the iPhone4. Call Quality is a lot better, as the ear speaker is louder, crisper and I can hear distinctly what the other person at the other end is saying...which was ..not the case with the iPhone4. My voice was received as good as it gets on the receiving end.

More to come like camera performance etc / vid capture / gaming and OS. ICS is growing on me

According to the rumors, Apple new iPhone will have a bit larger screen (4"). Chances are they won't enlarge it anymore for a couple years. To me even the enlarged screen still falls on the small side so I decided not to wait for it.

As for the GS3, I had a Galaxy Nexus. I can't stand Samsung and their oversaturated SAMOLED Pentile Displays. Not only do they look blown out, they are impossible to see in sunlight.

ICS is much better than all previous versions of Android, but still buggy. If Google would step up and force companies to stop sticking their crappy, buggy skins on top of it (Touchwiz, Sense, etc), it would be much better. I shouldn't have to root my phone, remove the bloatware, and run Vanilla ISC which voids the warranty to make it perform properly.
I can see some dithering on Text when they are a certain font size..etc but, I can live with that. Having said that this pentile display is supposed to be better than the Nexus one but, its inferior compared to the retina display of the iPhone4. So that goes to iphone4

As for the samsung version of the ICS...i am ok with it. It works and does things I want. Not one single crash as well so far so good.
