iphone 5 OR Samsung Galaxy S3?

And on top of that, you guys speak as if you've never owned both types of devices.

Have you guys even mentioned the Galaxy S2 to the girl? 1/3 of the price and more than enough features to get her started with a smartphone.

What's good between a Ferrari and a Porsche? I won't be driving fast... actually I've never driven a car before. I just want to drive around the block to get groceries. Help????

Oh and I won't get the chance to try any before I buy so I'm just diving into fanboy world.

And that's how fanboys (girls) are created.

Aside from the fact that Android does support emoji, if emoji support decides what phone you want, you probably want an iPhone.

ROFL

The S3 is a good device and has some awesome features .. but you will only be able to take advantage of them if your friends also have S3's. If you are a conformist, the iPhone is the way to go. It's easier to use and a lot more stable then the Android OS.

YA all my friends have iphones only my boyfriend has the S3 and he has made me want it but idk! i like both a lot! i just know i will never watch a tv show and surf the internet at the same time on my phone, id rather do that on my laptop with a bigger screen,so idk if i need the s3

hey hey hey, no need to be rude here :/ I want a smartphone for the camera,gps,group txting,apps,etc. i have a stupid feature phone right now and it sucks when i get messages from friends and they show up as blank picture messages if someone sends a mass text and people reply to it!

Again, my piece of advice to you: Go to the store and try the phones yourself. Spend an hour or two shopping around and ask questions. Pretend that you will buy the phones on the spot like that you will get the sellers to explain everything in detail. I've seen way too many fanboys get created from threads like these. You only get to see one side of the coin if you don't see both types of phones and that's what sucks the most.

While its cool to be in the "in crowd", I think both of those are overkill for your purpose. The Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 would be a great phone for your needs, its fast for a mid-range phone and its very pocketable. Plus accessories are available on amazon. If you want a higher end model, the Galaxy S2 and Google Nexus 4 are great options.

Between the S3 and iphone 5 its a close call, the S3 is better value for money, the iphone 5 is smaller and lighter. The S3 has expandable memory, which is great if you want to put lots of music on it. Some people prefer ios others prefer android, that's quite a personal choice.

Get ONE feature you can't live without and choose the ONE and only.

The S3 has expandable storage through microSD, the iPhone has fixed storage. So, ultimately, you'd have more storage space on the S3.

I prefer my S3 over the iPhone, but it's all dependent on what you would use your phone for.

From everything you are saying, it sounds like you should get the iPhone. The S3 is better then the iPhone 5. You can get a phone and you have 14 days to exchange it on most carriers.

I still don't see how you can say the Iphone 5 has a much better screen, when everything else says the contrary....

http://news.cnet.com...does-iphone-5s/

Everybody? There are plenty of reviews that say otherwise:

http://news.cnet.com/8301-13579_3-57519190-37/iphone-5-galaxy-s3-displays-go-head-to-head-iphone-wins/

I have an iPhone 5 and S3 sitting in front of me right now, and the S3 screen is pixilated and looks like absolute crap compared to the 5. It also suffers from oversaturation, but not as bad as the S2 was.

The S3 is big and bright, but quality-wise, it's mediocre at best.

My 55 year old mother uses Android and always has. She's most definitely not a nerd.

I wouldn't get either (I would get the Lumia 920), but out of those two the S3 is a more compelling product over the iPhone 5.

Based on your comments, get the iPhone 5. I just know you'll be happier with it.

That being said, I own an S3 and think it's great, I've had iPhone since 2007 and I'm so happy I made the switch to Android! Now if they would just give me an update to Jelly Bean!!!

This would be a huge issue for me but not for my wife, who would be fine with fixed storage. I guess it depends on your needs.

Android is a lot more customizable obviously, but iOS has better quality apps (in my opinion). Depends what you care more about.

This, basically

You have to download GO SMS pro and the emoji plugin. It's possible with future updates with Jellybean etc this will be integrated.

If you aren't tech savvy, I suggest you buy iphone 5. But I know they had some quality control issues with manufacturing with this new model.

Since ur bf has S3 you can do the tap to transfer stuff. But S3's updates are slower than apple.

If you will be with your bf for a long time, maybe he can help you with technical support later on...

Getting a commission based seller to explain things to you can created the wild fan boy too. Best thing to do is to keep the sales guy out of your decision making process because they're more likely to push whatever will get them the higher commission.

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH GUYS THIS IS SUCH A HARD DECISION!! The iphone 5 is big and wont fit in my pocket all the way like the iphone 4S does ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Then why not get a 4s, or stick with it if you already have it? It sounds like you just want something new and shiny.
