To spare myself wasting more time reading your useless drabble, I'll just place you on my ignore list.

The problem is that the LED only flashes as the phone is ringing or getting a text message. What i want is for the LED to flash every 30 sec until i check the notification.

I tend to lay my phone face down most of the time. So i actually see the flas before i hear the ring. But again, a blinking notification AFTER the call or message would be wonderful in my opinion.

I put in a preorder today at Best Buy for a 64g, in hopes of not to many people went with the 64 over the 16/32 models.

Yeah. The rep said the 64 should ship relatively quick since the 32 is the most popular.

Actually, I think the 16gb is the most popular. It's the first one that was back-ordered on Apple.com, as well as many of the provider's websites.

I agree, the 64 gb would be the least popular. But, that also means they are probably producing far fewer of those models too.

I think some sort of NFC chip for payments would have been nice. I guess that technology is still in its infancy though and isn't standard or ubiquitous in any way. The 5 offers nothing monumental other than 4G. As a 4 owner(not even 4s) I didn't really feel my phone was outdated, but the price is right on the 5 and will be worth it in my opinion.

I'm going from 4 to a 5 too, but 2 generations of processor, no gorilla glass (BIG improvement), smaller form factor and a larger screen is monumental in my book

Did you bother to read the article where you undoubtedly found this ad, or just post the biased ad?

Samsung drops all pretence of class and shamelessly targets Apple's iPhone 5 in new Galaxy S3 print ad.
Set to hit newspapers across the USA tomorrow, Samsung’s latest print advertisement aims to make the iPhone 5 look low-end in contrast to the Galaxy S3.
The new advertisement claims “The next big thing is already here.” From the looks of the ad, Samsung has yet to move on after being ordered to pay Apple $1 billion in damages back in August. Publishing an advertisement directly comparing Apple’s products with its own is a bold move from Samsung, especially since it lost the court case to Apple for infringing on its patents.
The print ad carries the tagline, “It doesn’t take a genius.” This is a play on Apple’s Genius branding, referring to in-store Apple experts and the online recommendation system for iTunes and the App Store. It also implies that choosing the Galaxy S3 is a no-brainer for consumers, considering it’s large number of features over the iPhone 5. There’s a clear hitch with this type of comparison, however, as Samsung has (for obvious reasons) made the list of features quite one-sided in the Galaxy S3′s favor.
Without placing any bias in favor of one phone over the other, Samsung does omit some popular, well-known features of the iPhone 5. For instance, where’s FaceTime, iCloud, or iTunes integration? And Android 4.0 is a year old now while iOS 6.0 is brand new, is that really something to brag about?

Attempting to smear the competition’s hardware isn’t the most mature way to market a product. No one’s saying the Galaxy S3 is an inferior device, but Samsung could have easily focused on the stellar features of its own device rather than taking another stab at Apple that comes across as petty. Rumor has it Samsung has a video ad in the works as well, in the same vein as its Galaxy S2 commercials showing a line up of people waiting for the new iPhone while ogling Samsung’s newest Galaxy handset.

Turbo, if you like your phone, great. Question is, why do you feel compelled to put garbage like this biased ad in this post? Trying to convince yourself you made a good choice?

If you like the plastic, unstable, last years OS, less apps, G3 phone - GREAT! Just bear in mind other people have their own preferences, inclusive of design, hardware, OS, options, Apps, etc... and for the most part, the world could give a shit about your biased G3 opinion.....

Lol that's it? That's what makes the iphone better? And actually I don't need to convice myself of anything since I have both. The gs3 is my personal phone while my iphone 4s is my work phone. (the company will upgrade sometime in the next few months to the 5) Either way, there's a reason why my personal phone is a gs3 and not an iphone. And I have nothing against apple, like i said before- I have a house full of their products. Just this time around gs3 wins.

Again, in YOUR opinion. Just be happy with what you have, enjoy it, and note that others have a different opinion. No one phone, or OS, is right for everyone. I've had many different phones, have ordered the iPhone5, and like you, will also receive a new iPhone from work this week. I welcome that work iPhone, will be great to toss the BlackBerry in the trash!!! My opinion!!!
