    I was a Nokia fan for years and I converted to Samsung in 2010 love the galaxy range even their tablets. Highly recommend them.

    So far so good. Only issue is the battery kind of sucks but that was expected due to the big screen. Waiting to buy an extended battery once they come out with a thin, reliatble one.

    Got "Juice defender" app and it makes a world of a difference. So far today, it's at 95% after about 9 hours with rare checks on email and 1 phone call. Before the app, I would drop to 70% after a few hours.

    I tried it, but didn't like how it would disable the data when the screen is off, which I guess is the main way they reduce battery consumption. Or is there a way around that? I like to get push email notifications rather than at a set time interval.

    I'm thinking about waiting until the new iPhone comes out and then picking the GS3 up if the iPhone doesn't wow me. Really liked it when i checked it out at the store today.

    Any of you guys want to chime in about how you like it so far after a couple weeks of use?

    I might have posted here too much but after a month and a half I still really like it.

    The only thing that bothers me is that it's not the most beautiful object although it's not horrible either and the blue colour is growing on me.

    Went ahead and picked up a GS3 the other week. Really enjoying it. Getting better battery life than my 4S. Seems to be a great phone.

    Had it for two weeks now, and really enjoying it. Screen is amazing, blazing fast with no lag. A handful of stability issues but not a regular occurrence.

    Getting great battery life with Lux Auto Brightness and Nova Launcher seems to have slightly improved battery life as well.

    Although LTE, even with a strong signal, sucks up battery life pretty severely. I stick with 4G unless I am on a prolong surfing session.

    I've had an iPhone 4 since it came out, and it's getting kind of broken here and there and I think it might be time for a change. Is there any reason NOT to get the Samsung Galaxy S III? I feel like it is the best phone on the market right now.
