Major factor in buying the iPhone 5 or Samsung Galaxy S3 in the UK ?

Hi

I read an article that the iPhone 5 will only work on 1 or 2 netowkrs on LTE in the UK, whereas the Samsung Galaxy Sú will work on all of the networks. I'm wondering if this is a major factor in choosing the Samsun Galaxy S3, especially with the riedicolous prices EE are charging currently.


I'm tempted to buy the S3 then when 4G LTE is widely available change plans maybe to another network.


I'm at the end of my phone cpontract and am wondering whether to sign up to a 24 months 3G deal; then get 4G, get the Samsung Galaxy S3 and in the future only switch plans as the phone is able to work on all LTE neworks in the UK ?

Thoughts ?

For me I could do with LTE if your current 3G network is up to par. I'd base my decision off the software more then the network if like I said the 3G is decent.

I could live with 3G speeds, it's the media craze over 4G LTE making me think ..
