Hey everyone, I am looking to buy my very first smartphone. I was going to get the 4s and then started reading all the reviews on the S3. And now I hear the iPhone 5 is about to be released. So I'm confused what to buy now. I work on a macbook pro 15" and have been buying apple computers since the IIe. I've owned almost every new line of computer desktop/laptop they've introduced since the early 80s, but I never purchased a smartphone or a an iPad. I just didn't see the need for it since I hardly use my phone now and spend most of my time on the macbook pro. Now I'm getting pressure from my friends and girlfriend to get a smartphone, and I'm also starting to feel way out of the loop. They all have the iPhone, but I find the screen size annoying. Still, being a mac os user all my life I always preferred their os over Windows not because I thought it was better but simply because it's what I've always used. So my question is does my preference of Mac os spill into their phones and are Android os like Windows? If you were me and not in a particular hurry what would you purchase?
