Right, but it sounds like since that is what I really do most with my phone, the more stable, more contestant battery life, would be a good trade off.. I am just trying to give myself the voice of reason to buy it since I have to buy it without a contract.
Yes, the iPhone is just like the last 6 iPhones and it is boring. But, I never really had issues with my iPhone unless I jailbroke it
Well, we're making progress. But now you've raised a couple more points to consider which bring me back to my earlier comment about jailbreaking/rooting.
I would say that if both phones are untouched (no rooting, no jailbreaking) then the iPhone will offer you longer battery life. I could probably squeeze two days of battery out of my S3, but I think the iPhone could do 2 days more easily. Maybe an iPhone user could confirm that, though.
However, if you went for the S3 then you could easily root it and install a custom ROM on there that could help increase the battery life.
if you root the device, there is the potential for the system to be less stable. Note that I say, "potential" as there are plenty of perfectly stable custom ROMS out there.
And you're right. The iPhone may be similar to previous iPhone devices, but you know what they say. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."
For me the decision boiled down to tinkering. I like tinkering, and it is easier to mess around with an Android device than it is an iPhone. That's my opinion, at least. Others may disagree with me.
