I really want an iphone but a friend has told me to take a look at the new Galaxy S before I decide. I haven't done a lot of checking into the phone just yet, but after reading your post I just might start looking. The iphones are very popular so if Apple is trying to block the sale of another phone, it must have some pretty good features to threaten the iphone.
The main problem with Apple is, they not only overcharge for their products, you want to rip you off for the services not supposed to be there. You can't change the battery on your own for many of the Apple products, and they charge a premium for the "service".
I hope Apple lose the lawsuit, so they will have to come up with a response by launching a better product.
Samsung Galaxy S III will be cheaper with similar features as iphone. It will not activate iTune when you plug it into a computer.
The SIII is absolutely stunning. The overall experience that Samsung provides with the Galaxy S line of phones is something that is completely perfect. The panoramic photo process is fast when stitching the photos together (less than a 10 seconds) it pretty much stitches the photos together as your take the panoramic photos. The screen is beautiful and watching videos, games and your normal everyday use is nice.
While I admit that Galaxy SIII is amazing..nothin can deter an Apple Fanboy! Much of the credit for success of iPhone is the software side iOS. The whole Apple ecosystem works seamlessly unlike less popular platforms like Symbian or blackberry.
SoI will rate Apple better than Samsung at least for some more years!
