Just flip a coin. Either phone will suffice. Or make your own decision. Coming on here and asking this question you'll never get a definitive answer. Just read up on both phones and make your decision based on that.

They're both excellent devices. If it were me though I'd wait and get the Nokia Lumia 920.

I'm getting an S3 next month, and I currently have an iPhone 4, so I think that speaks volumes about my opinion of the S3.

S3 is just too large for a phone. I want something a bit smaller. I do like how thin it is but it just to bulky for a pocket.

As for plastic or aluminum..well I put my phones in a case anyway. lol.I do not want scratches on it and it helps when I sell it again.

Have you considered the Galaxy S Blaze 4G from T-mobile? It's essentially a smaller version of the S2, but thicker than the S3. It's a solid budget smartphone but if you're looking for something with more power the S3 can't be beat

Go to your provider of choice, play with them both for a while and choose. You then have 7 days to decide if you like it or not. If you dont take it back and swap for the other. If you like it keep it, if not change it again.

Only issue with the S3 is that the S4 is coming out in March.. So if you get it now, it will be out dated in just a couple of months, but hey thats with all android devices right?

You can however get a S3 through Amazon for $100 rights now

Nokia Lumia 920 or (if it has to be Android) the next Nexus phone.

The iPhone 5 is utterly unexciting, the SIII looks and feels cheap-ish, and comes with TouchWiz. :x

Have a GS3 running CM10 N917 and it runs fantastic, love the phone, however, when asking for something like this there are many things you have to take into concideration.

Are you already familiar with either side? Do you like iOS or Android?
Also you have to look at the features, and each market place.
Is there any particular app in which you enjoy? is it on both markets?

Once you have though about all that it is easy to make a decision based on the usage you wish to get out of the device.

As it stands I like Android because it allows me to customize the device. I do not run standard software that comes on the phone so i rarely care who makes the phone (as currently Samsung has a lot of fancy apps on their device that makes people want it. I do not use any of that software)
