Even a 4" screen would still be too small for me. After using this Note for 2 months and then trying to use an iPod, it feels really weird and it strains my eyes more.

I'm also interested to see what the next iphone will be. If it is packing at least a 4" screen, LTE, and iCloud gets better it might be my next phone.
Exactly.

Plus you can run antivirus apps on your phone haha.

Can set up daily/weekly scans plus it will scan all newly installed apps, just like a PC

Actually this is why I am waiting for the iphone, the fact that I don't have to do this. I just want a phone that works. Right now the iphone is the staple of any mobile/web app made. Companies know that it runs the basis mobile computing. Android is catching up, but the whole idea of updates and OS and so on and so forth is a pain in the butt.

I want a phone that works, the cloud is nice as it saves everything on all my machines. Makes life easier.

Google has the cloud too.

And i bet iphones have system apps running in the background too. And I could have sworn they still get OS updates??

I have the same phone as thomas but unrooted, running stock rom and it works just fine. Think of it as a car, im stock and he is running stage 2. At least with android you have the option to go stage 2.
The latest update seems to have cured my not receiving text problem. I guess they knew it was coming so thats why they didnt give me a new phone straight away.

I am much happier with my razr than i was with my iphone 4.

Thats a really good perspective to put it into, something that we can all relate to.

And when you start using custom ROMs and Kernals.. then you're talking about stage 3 and up haha

Samsung Unveils GSIII Complete with Own Version of Siri
Specs for the Galaxy S III include a 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED 1280 x 720 display; a quad-core Exynos processor; 1GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel camera on the back with a 1.9-megpixel affair up front (as opposed to the 1.3-megapixel lens that was rumored); Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) with Samsung's TouchWiz UI on top and new gesture functions to improve navigation; and HSPA+ support (Samsung is also working on an LTE model). The whole package will weigh in at 133g and measures just 8.6mm thick. Samsung says the device is supposed to mimic the 'warmth and beauty' of nature.

As far as software is concerned, Samsung's bundled in some nifty new features, including voice capture for photos (no more reaching around to try to stab the capture button on the touchscreen!), as well as Smart Stay, which keeps your phone active when you're using it using the front-facing camera to detect your face. S Beam is an expansion of Android Beam that uses WiFi and NFC to let you share photos and videos (Samsung mentions a 1GB clip being shared in three minutes and a 10MB music file skipping across to a buddy's phone in two seconds).

S Voice is Samsung's answer to Apple's Siri, and the company is describing it as an 'advanced natural language user interface' that listens and responds to your words. You can tell S Voice to 'snooze' if your alarm goes off and you're not quite ready to leave bed, you can use it to play your favorite songs, send texts, emails, organize your schedule or, like we mentioned, take photos.

Verge says all major carriers, might be time to ditch this ancient GNex.

The US will get the version with the Snapdragon S4 Dual Core since the Exynos doesn't support LTE yet. That being said the S4 actually gets better benchmarks
