Galaxy S3 Verizon....

I love this phone. Sales rep had me try it out for my upgrade and I am surely keeping this for awhile. Anyone else have this device?

One feature I setup is when I say "Jarvis" the phone will unlock and the s voice comes on and asks what id like to do today.....bad@ss

I have been looking at anytime I go anywhere that has it on display. I have heard nothing but good things about it, but I want to wait for the 5 before I make a decision.

Been an iPhone guy since the first iPhone. About to make the switch to the S3. It's fast.

About to make the switch to S3 also from iPhone 4S. But I will have to wait to see how the iPhone 5 is first.

I've had an iphone since the first day it came out. Yes, I camped out for it! I recently just switched out to the verizon s3 and this is what I have to say.
Good:
Beautiful display
VERY fast
Love the 4G speed

Bad:
Interface is kinda shitty. Maybe I'm just used to the iphone!
Typing is horrible along with the crappy auto correct. I've tried many different keyboards already.
Battery drains like mad if you're in an area with OKAY reception (2-3 bars)

The bad is because you are used to the iPhone interface. I made the switch to the iPhone 4s a month ago from the Galaxy SII because the new F10 is very iPhone friendly. I hate this damn phone, the interface is horrible, it lacks some of the creature comforts and simplicity of navigation that the Galaxy had. I am actually going back today to get the SIII as a secondary line and leave this horrible iPhone hooked up to the car at all times.

go into keyboard settings and select the predictive typing, theres a whole different menu where you need to deselect other options. hope this helps

I made the switch to the s3 from the 4s. I love the bigger screen, lte 4g, fast cpu along with the 2 gig ram. The only thing I miss about the 4s are the games available for it, other than that, the s3 kicks azz.

Is anyone on here using the Galaxy Note? Rumor has it that Samsung are releasing the Note 2 later this month.

I've had the phone for about a week now...and still cannot get it to connect to 4G. We have plenty of coverage here...it's got to be something with the phone. Others on verizon around me don't have issues.

Verified it set to operate on LTE?

Otherwise, like the phone so far, other than the video camera. My Droid X did a better job with then.

EDIT: actually, on a whim, I decided to pull the battery...and what do you know, 4G at last

^ How long ago was this?

Got the Galaxy Nexus after 4 years of the Iphone (2g, 3g, 4). Used ICS for about 1 month and was sold.

Going to pull the trigger on an S3 soon, Iphone seems so blah now.

It was about 10 months ago when I got suckered into one instead of going and buying a 4s outright which is what I have now... It froze up quite often, something about the GUI really bothered me and the simplicity and easy to make work qualities of Apple made me miss the Iphone. The Android system prides itself on being customizable and this and that after tons of setting up but who wants to deal with that shit on a phone. The easy and effective solution is the Iphone and thats why its been so succesful.
