I'm with verizon and have the Droid Razr Maxx, and am pretty happy.  Battery life is pretty strong, and usually lasts me all day on medium/heavy usage.  From what I've heard, the Galaxy batteries are terrible.

In reality they are all awesome and it comes down to preference of the layout and such. 

I prefer the iPhone but that's me.

so, you like to pay for most of the useful apps?  Or you like the useless free apps more?

I bought the Galaxy S3 Today... I've been just messing around with it. But man is this phone amazing and FAST! I've had 4g LTE before but this blows it out of the water. I'll give a much more detailed report tomorrow

One thing I can say about the Galazys3 is that the battery life is pretty damn good. Its a bit bigger than their standard battery.. another con is the GPS loses signal. mine loses the signal if sitting on my front seat.. have to put it on the dashboard to regain signal.. Imagine trying to drive through DC fiddling with your phone in the windshield

I have the Iphone 5, its pretty awesome..it has 4g LTE just like the galaxy, very similar phones..I just prefer apple..I have Imac and the labtop. so for photos to go to the Imac automatically is pretty cool. I dont pay for the pointless apps, I have buy 1-2 apps a month half r free the other are .99

I too have verizon and the unlimited data,just found out the other day you either keep unlimited and pay full price for next phone or lose unlimited for the discount even when renewing contract...total BS

Im pissed but there arent any companies that offer unlimited with descent  phone service/coverage..i need to keep unlimited data though i use my phone for everything now

I have the S3 as well.  Everything about it is great except I get horrible reception with it.  Dealt with Verizon all day (phone and store) and it is a known issue with no fix in insight.  They are hoping Samsung has a software update ready soon.  They wanted to replace it with the Droid Razr.  Just FYI...

dumb lawsuit by iphone. apple BUYS some of its hardware from SAMSUNG directly. samsung will pay the billion dollars and just jack up the cost of products sold to apple. of course its the same product, you friggin bought it from samsung thinking they wouldn't use it against you.

Right, you can keep the unlimited but you have to buy your phone outright.. thought I seen somewhere they were selling the galaxy nexus for 299 outright, prob your best bet.. I upgraded on the last day which was sometime at the end of june.. no more discounted phone prices.. but I still have a rezound new in box in case this phone gets broken

as a owner of both SIII & IP5 without a doubt SamsungIII is the only chose! i was selling phones on the side and when Galaxy3 came out i couldnt even keep them in my home for more then a few hours but since betting has begun i dont have the time in making small change rather spend all my time doing my homework of this weeks TOP PICKS~!

theres ways to get around it.
add a line pay $10 first month then get the new ip5 for $200 for example. then cancel the $10 fee

or use an upgrade in your plan.

either ways you keep unlimited data with verizon.

so we can conclude that the S3 is > iP5?

even tho S3 is older couple of months fro the iP5.


rumor has it that the new S4 will be out in March 2013...
