    Would you ditch the iPhone and switch to Samsung S3?


    I'm sure some of you are "not-so-young" (like myself, 40 going 41), and find that the iPhone screen is too small.

    I've set the fonts on my iPhone 4 to something larger, but I would really like to get opinions from those who have ditched their iPhones and went with a Samsung S3 or Note.

    My main concern is iMessage, which I've used quite often, ever since I upgraded my Mac's OS to Mountain Lion.

    Second concern is speed and ease of use. I've tested a Samsung Galaxy Note, and find the interface slightly less responsive than the iPhone..

    For those who made the switch, any regrets so far?

    Certainly not! I been an avid user of all the three kings; Blackberry, Samsung and Apple. To be very honest, I prefer the layout of iPhone and it just looks more professional (in business world).

    Well, it is just my opinion but again, Samsung Android is really a good choice if you area heavy customizer.

      To be honest! Blackberry is the worst phone I've ever had! Crashes more often than not, besides that bb messenger is their best ever service. Can't knock that if I say so. Samsung is knocking at apples door! Without Steve's jobs what r they?

    I have many bloggers as my friends and believe me , Everybody runs after S3 . I think , S3 is the much hyped product after which people are running . iPhone is something which people resist when given choice with S3 .

    I personally have NOT made the switch to an S3 from an IDevice although I will admit there was a time when I was heavily motivated to do so. Mainly due to the hardware specifications of the S3, the operating system and the phones feature set. In comparison to the 4S the S3 IS  a more advanced device. In the case of IMessage, a BBM-like instant messenger for the IPhone, the same functionality exists for Android but would be entirely through the use of a third party application such as LiveProfile or KIK Messenger. I think for your specific needs making the change might be a good idea. The S3 would offer you a more current, faster, more powerful and up to date device, with the larger screen in comparison to your 4S. But keep in my mind the IPhone 5 is sure not to disappoint and when released, in my opinion, will be the flagship phone on the market, and offer the user an even more advanced set of options, then that of the S3. If your familiar at all with jailbreaking your device, it certainly would be a strong benefit to an IDevice that you would be losing by making the change. Best of luck in your decision smile
