For those of you who have had trouble deciding which phone is the best choice, this is a review that may be helpful. I have always been a fan and user of apple devices. I was previously using the iPhone 4S. This phone was a great device, but I was looking for more options in the platform. I then moved into my Samsung Galaxy S3 and after a simple setup I was amazed by the capabilities and platform of this device.

Opening a Samsung Galaxy S3[/caption]
The feature that was most amazing to me is the different motions that include, Direct Call, Smart Alert, Double Tap To Top, Tilt To Zoom, etc. Another great thing is tap to beam which is where you choose a file such as a picture or video from your gallery and touch backs to another capable device and tap the file selected, it will then beam the file to the other device. These perks are a big factor in my decision, they make things quicker to accomplish.
Everybody is familiar with Siri on the iPhone 4S, it is a software that you can communicate with by asking questions such as, what the weather is going to be like for a specific day or time. While I admit this is a very intelligent idea, the Galaxy S3 has something like it called S Voice, I must admit that I was skeptical at first but then I found that it is just as intelligent as Siri. There is also an app found in the market called google voice this has the same capabilities and works just as great. The ability to communicate with the device for setting reminders, alarms or even finding the quickest route to your favorite restaurant is a great thing to have.

Lots of finger room on this 4.8 inch screen[/caption]
Now for the display, the iPhone 4S uses a 3.5 inch retina display, now dont get me wrong this is an amazing display with a resolution of 640 by 960, where as the Galaxy S3 has a 4.8 inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 720 by 1280. Battery life is another thing that helped my decision. The iPhone 4S has a standby time of 200 hours and talk time of 8 hours max. The S3 has a standby time of 200 hours and talk time of 15 hours max. I can go the whole day without connecting my charger once.
In total, I have had many devices. I thought the iPhone 4S would be fantastic and it left me waiting. After the hype about the Samsung Galaxy S3, I knew I had to get my hands on one. And I will never regret the fact that I did.
