Pros Plenty of bells and whistles
Fun to use
Cons AWFUL reception. Dropped nearly every call that I made. Beware! It might be the "Next Big Thing" but its not much of an actual phone. I am a us cellular customer.
Summary Went to the motorola electrify and its fantastic!! Us Cellular didn't even put up a fight, I traded the first phone in thinking maybe I had a lemon. The second phone didn't work either, so they took it and gave me an actual phone because they new it was a problem!
Pros Nice screen, fast
Cons expensive, buggy, slippery
Summary I purchased T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S3 on 8/30/12 for a full price - $650. Phone was working properly for the first day, the second day, proximity sensor stopped working and the screen was on during the call, so I was hitting other buttons by accident. Finally, when the screen went out, it never came back on, when I removed the phone from my ear and tried to push any number. I went back to store and they did replace the phone - no question asked. The second phone was working fine the first day, the second day, the phone started shutting down on its own. It vibrating very quick and shut down, approx 5 times a day. I was unable to turn it back on, so I had to remove the battery and put it back. So I decided, the phone is not worth of my money. I currently own Samsung Galaxy S2 and I am very happy with it. I just thought, this may be a better phone, but the opposite is the truth. It also had much worse reception in same area, where I live and work. My Galaxy S 2 always gets full bars on reception, Galaxy S 3 was getting only 1-2 bars only.
Pros Less weight
super sensitive touch
Feels great in the hand
Awesome video recording
Summary When listening to tracks in Play Music app, I'm unable to change the song using earphone controls or using volume button. I have to unlock the screen and open the app to change the song. This becomes difficult when i'm driving. I feel, the music app needs to be improved or I have to find any other music player which does this function with which I can change the track using earphone controls.
Pros -Large screen
Cons -The OS was buggy. Almost all of the time when I tried to launch an app, it broke down and crashed on me.
-The screen, while big, isn't that great. Pentile with oversatured colors.
-Camera wasn't that great.
-Made of plastic
-Bad audio quality
Summary This phone does it all! Except not really.
After finally freeing myself from my locked down cage of my iPhone, I decided to give Android a try with supposedly one of the 'best' android phones on the market.
It was awful.
While the customization was amazing, everything else was awful. You're trading reliability for the ability to customize a homescreen. Thats not enough.
The OS is simply too buggy.
The camera takes bad pictures and has a bad white balance.
The audio quality when recording sounds lile someone held something over the microphone and rubbed it against it the entire time.
The screen makes colors feel oversaturated and whites really aren't that good.
The plastic feel made a $200 phone feel like a bad featurephone.
It was awfully big to hold in the hand and reaching to opposite sides of the screen when holding it with one hand was bad.
Their isn't much of an ecosystem to be a part of like there is with the iPhone.
Touchwiz is a rather boring UI as compared with HTC Sense.
Battery life is next to mediocre.
Wait for the Lumia 920, buy a One X, or get ourself an iPhone. Just don't look here.
Pros Amazing screen. Fast processor. Easy to hold. Battery lasts all day but it's nice to easily swap out a fresh battery when pulling an all-nighter.
Cons None. Absolutely none.
Summary I've been an iPhone user since June 2007. This was my first venture out from the iphone and I can't see myself ever going back. So what the 5 is going to have a 4" screen. I already have a 4.8" screen. Love this phone. $30 for a spare genuine Samsung spare battery. 32 GB Storage card. Free unlimited tethering. The list goes on and on and on.Maybe it's AT&T but I leave the house in the morning fully charged at 7 am. Most nights after football practices I don't get home until 9 pm. I'm usually still at 30% or greater. I use the phone all day. Surf, text, about 60 minutes worth of calls. You may have a bad phone or it's just AT&T's network. That's why I left them and came to Verizon. Yeah, they are a little more expensive but well worth it.
