    The 4.3 inch Galaxy S2 wasn't a good enough mid range option these days?
  3. Still waiting for a highend android phone with 4" display.

    Exactly... the "full size" S III is like a kindle fire... I dont want something that big in my pocket other than what God gave me... As a sprint customer, I have no choice but to get an iphone 5. I'm no apple fan, but I will concede it is the best offering they have right now.
  5. Nice phone, but I like the big screen. I'm waiting on the Oppo Find 5 with a 5 inch 1920x1080 screen and 6mm thick with a 3mm border around the screen (amazing). The Oppo Finder is nice being crazy thin as well, but I'd rather wait for the Oppo Find 5.

    How does a onscreen keyboard make sense on a small phone?!

    The iphone5 is 1 finger width smaller than the S3, your pocket cant handle ALL that extra size?

    Small is not better its annoying and useless, get a old school phone then that just makes calls. Small phones only let you make calls and click on icons. You can't properly view spreadsheets on them, typing is a gigantic pain in the butt.

    Until someone creates a device with a proper brainlink interface or something crazy with a display like google goggles bigger IS better.

    LOL! Doing spreadsheets on a phone. Even working on a 13 inch laptop doing real spreadsheet work is a waste of time. Let's be serious now.

    You could always buy an unlocked phone on kijiji that works on Sprints' network. If you're not the type of person to get the newest phone on release day, then wait a few months, get a phone that was $600 for $250 and you're laughin. Right now you can get a mint condition unlocked Galaxy S II on kjiji for $250cdn. And you're damn right I'd choose an S2 over a stupid iPhone 5. I instantly liked my Galaxy S1 better than the iPhone 4 I had. The hardware is nice minus the small screen, but I found iOS to be dreadful.
  10. I own a Galaxy S3 and Kindle Fire HD. What are you talking about?!? My gf has an iphone 5 and the S3 is not much bigger than that. Add to it the non-restrictive customer trap enviroment, more power, more customability and more PC friendly(unless you own a hugely overpriced/overated IMAC/Macbook pro etc..) I owned the first gen IPhone and pre Mac bankruptcy Performa/Lc macs and the Apple products are not superior - WAKE UP - YOU ARE NOT SUPERIOR TO THE REST OF US CHAV....
