Tried both and I kinda liked the S3 better. Traded it for a Lumia 920 though.

Get an S3. Why? Well it will be a great learning experience for one no matter how new you are to android. You will find new things to learn about with android. You wont grow bored

If you're on AT&T the Lumia 920 is only $50 this weekend (in store) and includes a free wireless charging plate. It has built in support for Emojis, is VERY easy to use (especially for someone who has never owned a smartphone before), and comes in multiple colors which are very cool. It also has 32GB storage, the same as the $300 iPhone model. Includes turn-by-turn navigation which is far better than what the iPhone has if you ever use your phone for directions. Another cool feature if you live in a cold climate is you can use it even with gloves on!

It comes in black, white, red, cyan, and yellow. I got the cyan one and I'm really happy with it.

personally i prefer the iphone.
apps are generally better made.
doesnt suffer from as much slow down as the s3 - at least my s3 does.

either way just but a nokia 8800, its cooler

You clearly need an iphone if accessories are what is tempting your purchase. If you don't know what features you'll use Apple helps you decide by limiting most in exchange for the smoothest experience possible.

She already bought the S3. No point in trying to get her to change her mind. If she doesn't like the phone she'll return it.

I went with an iPhone 5 instead of the S3. I needed to get a replacement for selling my iPod Touch, so getting an iPhone was the best option since I have lots of stuff locked to iTunes. I'm still getting used to it, but so far I'm happy. The BB rep laughed at me when he saw I was out of contract by 7 years. He laughed harder when I showed him my 2G LG phone.
