I just got the GS3(Red) yesterday. Mainly cause it's a nice phone and AT&T had a promotion. I paid $99 for the phone w/ 2 yr contract renew. And they threw in beats ear buds and a nice case for free. I know I would never get this type of deal for the next iPhone. Still have my iP4 and will hold on to it for awhile.

Was also able to keep my unlimited data and $5 200 text plan.

If the next iPhone is a homerun .... I'll just sell the GS3 and iP4 and buy the new iPhone off contract. But if it's not spectacular, I'll just use the GS3 with the iP4 as backup.

So far I'm happy with the GS3 and enjoying LTE speeds. Batt life is decent so far, but it's only been a day to really judge.

I was also offered the HTC one x for free but passed on that. Now I have to order a 32 or 64gb micro sd card.

I am kinda jealous of the red one!!! Mind you, I do have a cover on mine. I like the pebble blue well enough but would have loved a racy red one!!

I got a white one and am very happy with it, but I bet the red one looks superb.

Well it's definitely not racy red, It's more of a deep maroon color.

AT&T calls it "Garnet Red". I'm not sure it matches the mineral though.

I agree. I just got the white one and love it. Red does look good as well. I was die hard apple and with the S3 i can't say i am going back anytime soon. That is for the iphone.

Taken with iP4 camera in low light, so quality not the best. It also looks 3 times as red in the pics than in person.

It's pretty nice. Opted to hold back on a screen protector cause of it. Will see how it deals with everyday usage.

Slighty off topic ......

4G LTE signal seems to be amazing all over NYC area. So far I been all over Bklyn, Queens & Manhattan since I got this phone. It's always displayed as using LTE. I haven't seen a 3G or E symbol yet. Everytime I do a speed test I'm getting at least 20dwn and 13up, which is why I believe the LTE symbol is correctly displayed. The highest so far was 36dwn and 15up. I've also noticed that known dead spots where 3G just does not work at all, 4G LTE does just fine.

That's a hell of a deal, especially for that text plan.

Yea, I would be paying $15 more if they wasn't able to grandfather my text plan.

I have also seen a black one said to be coming out. But its black. Ive had black phones for years so it isnt exciting to me even though it did look nice.

I have come to the conclusion (other than the red colour), that the SSGS3 is an ugly looking phone LOL!

Seriously, don't get me wrong, I have one and it works well but I have been wondering what is it about the phone that keeps me from loving it and I really believe it is the look!

Also, anyone who owns one, other than me, find that you sometimes pick up the phone and press the ear piece vs the home button? They look the same and if you are not paying attention, I have picked up the phone upside down too many times LOL!

I even liked the Nexus form factor better. Now I don't plan on replacing it or anything, but I have to finally confess, I don't think the form factor is attractive. It doesn't feel or look cheap, it just lacks personality!

Uh , nope. Havent done that. I havent given the look of it much thought. I dont think there is anything wrong with it. Still wish it had a home capacitive button but , i dont use the home button much.

Well it certainly falls short of the HTC ONE X's level of design elegance

Man that's one sexy looking smartphone. I only found out about it recently and the more I see about it, the more I like it. A shame that none of the carriers in my country has it, so it is likely that it is not an option for me, unless I buy unlocked. :(

If iPhone 5 is nothing more than a 4s on Viagra I may tell my hospital to either pay for my iPhone and get android for personal use or tell them to make things work with my android. Which means a One X or SG3. I've been running iOS 6 Beta. It's what iOS should have been a year and a half ago.
