I've been with the iPhone for 4 years now and I'm very comfortable with the phone, but I wanted to try something different. I've been using the SG3 for about 3 weeks and I really enjoy this phone. The only issue is the music. My genre's are not converting correctly. Other than that, this phone is great. I've got one week to decide what to do. There's part of me that wants to go to the iPhone 5 and part of me wants to stay with what I got. I just thought I'd make a post so I can get some feedback to help make my decision. I could be overlooking something by making this switch, so if you have any advice, please help.

    I took mine back within a week of purchasing it. I'll stick with my iPhone. I just prefer iOS over Android, I suppose.

    It was just too big for me and I found that it lagged and froze quite a bit. I've never had any issues with my iPhone. So I decided just to take back the SG3 and pre-order the iPhone5.

    You have not shown disrespect for Apple or questioned Apple's policies, most likely is the reason your post remains.


    You asked a valid technical question and the discourse has been technical.


    Maybe future questions will receive answers you find useful.


    Happy travels.

    Its mainly personal preference in which os you like more imo but theres a few points you could consider


    do you like the big screen on the SG3 or would you rather have one thats just as long but thinner to fit a easier in one hand / your pocket?

    Did you prefer iOS experence better than droid?

    Is the expandable storage useful to you or would you do just fine with fixed storage?

    do features like voicetime siri imessage and icloud appeal to you or are you content with the equivilents on droid?



    anyway if you can't decide you could always wait til theres enough stock of the 5's around then pick one up and take it back if you would prefer to stick with the GS3
