Who's going to want your second hand iPhone 5, after your filthy paws have been all over it?

Same with most android phones. Google are definitely taking things in the right direction with the nexus devices. I think they're great.

I'm gonna personally stick with my 4S for another year but love what Google and Microsoft are doing.


If I was to switch to Android tomorrow, I would go with the Nexus just because I absolutely hate bloatware, that is why I have an Iphone.

I've always thought that but after using my Galaxy Tab 2 tablet for a bit with Touchwiz, I would be fine with a S3 or a Note 2. Also, the lack of a SD card is sort of a deal breaker to me.

Only problem I have with the new Nexus 4 is that its $299 for a 8 gig model with no SD card slot. It does not have LTE, which we will be getting first part of next year and I honestly do not like the on screen buttons. I much prefer the physical button on the S3. Also factoring in its sold out means I will not be getting the Nexus 4. Thanks for the suggestions on that one though, I have been looking at comparisons all day of both the S3 and the Nexus 4 to try and decide.

I never put music on my phone. I have ALWAYS streamed music using Pandora, Slacker, Spotify or Rdio. All my space is used for pictures and apps, and since I am going back to Android and have the ability to use the phone as a usb transfer device I want the extra storage to be able to use that if needed.

gs3 is still a great choice even with the new stuff coming out. it's my first android phone, and it's been great so far.

(i would like updates faster, but that's verizon for you...)

I thought about it, but just to young in the market right now. I like the Nokia 920, don't get me wrong, but its just not where they need to be right now for me

First thing I plan on doing is turning it into a SuperNexus.

For whatever reason, Chrome considers a lot of the official custom rom websites and downloads to be malicious. Even the official CM9 nightlies get flagged as malware when you download them.


Never done that for me, odd :/

iPhone 5 is WAY better than the SG3.

If you REALLY need Android. ... go for Google's Nexus 4. I can assure you, you will be far happier than with Samsung's embarrassment of a phone.

lol, the Galaxy S3 is a great phone. It's outselling the iPhone. Don't go to Apple fans for objective advice about Apple products, lol.

Good choice. Once I'm able to, I will be ditching my iPhone 4s and going back to Android (use to have a Droid X). I hate my iPhone, and now its essentially "falling apart" just outside of warranty (lock button stuck, speaker not loud anymore even though its at max, etc.).

I was a little dissappointed when they announced the Nexus 4 that it doesn't have LTE. Oh well though, its still a fantastic phone, as well as the S3 (although I'm not a fan for TouchWiz, but I would root that thing ASAP). :D

Oh, and this is why AOKP is coming up with a Malware Warning lately in Chrome, as they announced they were infected somehow by a third party.
