I recently ended up with a lightly used iphone4, and what a difference. It just seems easier to maneuver around inside it, the battery lasts longer than the LG did when new, and it feels like a nicer, more valuable tool too.
I'm almost ready to let ya call me an Apple fanboi.
Don't get me wrong, the S3 is great even with the added carrier junk. The fact that I can even do the things I did to it is the reason I'll never own an Apple product. True, they do "just work" but the freedom to do anything I want to MY phone is priceless. I do accept that messing under the hood is beyond the ability or desire of most people. Would you buy a bike that you couldn't farkle or tune beyond putting a rain cover over it?
