You should arealdy know you never buy something right away. You always wait a few months because technology advances every couple of months.

I have the GS3 I think it is like the perfect size. At first it might seem big, but you get used to it after a while. I like the bigger screen, but I agree the note is a little big.

The GS4 is rumored to come out Q2 of this year which is early for the line, phone is gonna be great. Then again every new phone is just getting better and better thanks to the leaps and bounds Andriod has taken as an OS and the hardware has come together nice to get the most out of the OS as well. At this rate the next iphone will obviously be obsolete, then again the iphone 5 itself is still inferior imo of the brand new Andriod phones that have been coming out.

Good call there, with the new phones coming out this year the s3 and Nexus 4 will not be the top phones out there. Its amazing how in the tech world in just about half a year some electronics are just no longer up to par. Actually its not amazing its frustrating it sucks to see a new thing come out that is better and your stuck in a 2 year deal that is basically worth your soul lol. Its at the point that there even though newer and better phones are coming out every quarter even the old ones are still great, the gs4 might be out in a little while, but my gs3 is still an amazing phone.

^ I feel the same way. I'm happy with my SGS3. But I do feel for Apple sheep. Apple seems to have the next thing stored away always. Like they most likely have the 6 done, excuse me, I mean the 5s.

I understand what your saying, but I can't agree with that. The only reason apple does this is because the consumers allow them to. If the consumers didnt eat up everything they put out apple would def step their game up its that simple. Google notice that Apple had a running start in the smart phone race, so they did all they could to make sure they caught up and their OS has moved leaps and bounds with each update while Apple's hasnt.

Google is now reaping the benefits of hard work with a soaring stock price, having android as the number one mobile OS and apple's stock and sales are suffering because of their laid back approach. However, that all started because the apple fan boys allowed themselves to be sold a product that wasnt being nearly improved as much as it could of and should of been.

So in other words..... they're sheep??

I just rooted my s3 again.
Many benefits include:
Free wifi tether
Better ad blocker
Beats audio
Speeding up phone with MinFreeManager

I know there's many more but these are what I've done thus far. If you do do it, make sure you know what you're doing.
