I have been an iPhone user since the 3G and I love the iPhone and how it has developed over the years... But Samsung are bringing some nice devices out.

A friend of mine has the galaxy note and I'm seriously tempted and this came out. Kinda inbetween.

I really hope apple increase the screen size of their next device(s). The galaxy note and s3 look great.

Will see how they perform. Waiting for the ICS update to come out. This is where apple do seriously well. Update comes out for all devices.

I'm loyal to no one and as long as the device is smooth and responsive I'm happy. Just hope apple spice things up a bit!

I'm buying a new phone soon I can't really afford the s3 or I would jump at it, however I do have my eyes on the Galaxy S Advance, which actually beats the S2 in a few of the benchmarks.

Still have a few weeks to decide but right now it's between the S Advance and an Xperia S.

The more I think about it, I might actually just get the S3 it's stupidly expensive but I really like the thought of it beating the newest ipad in graphic benchmarks it might be just the thing to annoy my manager with his 4S.

It looks nice, but before I would even think about investing in one google needs to clean up their OS. What's the use of such great hardware if it just gets bogged down?

Well my common sense won out and I bought a slightly cheaper handset still a pretty decent new one from Samsung.

I've kind of been lusting after an Amoled screen since I first saw them so I bought a Galaxy S Advance (New updated S with dual core cpu,curved gorrilla glass, super amoled, 8gb on board and microsd.

On it's first charge so I haven't even seen it in action yet, it's a big step up for me because I've just been relying on basic phones and my ipod up till now, I'm really looking forward to playing with it. another bonus is with three in the UK I can easily have all you can eat data making my life a lot less easier.

Yeah wait, what exactly did apple copy? A gesture which brings up the notification bar? And....... Absolutely nothing! Other than the gesture (which isnt even something google can claim it had first, webos had those before it, though not for notif bar specifically) the iOS notif bar neither looks nor works the same as Google's. And when you take into account all the "inspirations" android got from iPhone (google android prototypes pre-iPhone and then come back and thank apple that you got an iPhone clone instead of a blackberry clone), apple's copying this gesture would seem like a drop compared to Google's ocean.

Nice job copying my comments, what are a parrot?

Seriously, you are raging over a piece of hardware. Look at yourself in the mirror.

There is a reason why there are people out there in the internet hate apple fanboys. There is a reason why they call people like you an "ifag" and "itard".

Grow the hell up, son.

I thought this story was pretty interesting although probably not deserving of a topic of it's own so I put it in here where it sort of fits.

Quote:
“Samsung has taken a sizeable lead in the smartphone market in terms of unit shipments,” a Juniper Research press release notes. “In the second quarter of 2012, Samsung shipped 52.1 million smartphones, just over double the number shipped by its leading rival, Apple—26 million.

And Samsung isn’t just doubling Apple’s smartphone sales, it’s actually growing its lead over Apple by a sizable amount. In fact, Juniper claims that Samsung’s lead over Apple actually doubled quarter-on-quarter. The firm cites the release of the new Samsung flagship handset, the Galaxy S3, as playing a key role in this domination. Samsung sold more than 10 million Galaxy S3 handsets in June alone.
Full story here

I'm starting to doubt if the iPhone 5 will be able to compete with the S3 (international version) nevermind the upcoming Samsung phones but with any luck it will mean better phones for everyone while they try and outdo each other.

Now if they can both just get on with making better products and stop all the silly court battles.
