My S3 is awesome. I almost went with an IPhone but the S3 blew me away

I have an android phone but use an ipod at the gym so I don't have to worry about breaking the phone screen. It's probably the last apple product I feel like I need to own. Apple products seem designed to break from normal use. I know a lot of people with broken iphones. Not so much with android users. Sorry, not trying to make this into an apple vs. android thing. My wife has an iphone 3 and loves it. So to each their own.

However, the iphone 5 shows signs that apple is on the back end of their successful run. The reason why is that the iphone is starting to mimic other products. The smaller connector and larger screen smack of competing against the android phones. When both the ipod and iphone came out, everybody rushed to imitate them. They made products they wanted to sell and everybody copied them because it worked. Now it's the other way around.

I'm in this same boat. I bought a few apps I like and my 3GS is functional, but feels sluggish. I was definitely planning to upgrade to the 5, until they changed the charging plug. Now I'm not sure if I should pre-order or switch to a new platform.

Android FTW. But I love my iMac. I'm both an Apple and Android fanboy. A rare thing...

Is that a fancy word for refractometer? Already have one. Good here.

Phone yes but seems like this may be the way of the future. I had most of the iPhones and they work just fine but I personally like the Android operating system better. I currently have the Samsung galaxy note which barely fits in my pocket but it is great. The reason I bought such a huge phone is because phone aren't just phones anymore. You can do basically anything on them as on a computer. In fact I rarely use my laptop and I'm on my phone all the time. The screen on the iPhone was too small for the amount I used my phone so I got this and I love it. There are dedicated apple lovers and users but they really need to step it up in my opinion.

Not me. I just got a Windows phone after being a crack berry addict for years. It's taking some getting used to. This Lumia isn't as 'let me do it myself like I want to ' as the BB. Kinda miss the keyboard too. Much bigger screen though. Noticeably faster. Camera doesn't seem as good but I need to play with it more. And this phone came with Office.

Glad I'm not the only one who feels this way. I'm in the market for a new phone, but decided to wait till Apple's announcement before making my decision. I'll be buying an Android phone.

I don't see why everyone jumps to a new iphone when it comes out. Apples got a great marketing plan, pricing it way too high so that everyone thinks it's the greatest thing in the world. They've seem to convince everyone that they need, no, can't survive without one.
