Got get a plan for my son and can get a S3 on a $35 plan v $25 just for the sim, so the phone is $240 over AUD, although i get a $100 credit and $150 to spend in accessories store. So its really free, He has a iPhone 5 so he will have the sim and will use the S3 as a spare and maybe as a sat nav in car if it works.
Are they any good, if not might go a bit more and get the note 3 i have been wanting.
I have never had a android phone.

Tech moves fairly fast, the S3 is almost 2 years old, not sure I would want to go backwards from an iPhone 5.

Depends on what he wants out of it, it will be fine for awhile but as it's been said it is almost 2 years and the s4 would be a better phone to buy.

He will keep using the iPhone 5 with new sim, i thought i might use the S3 as a back up or sat nav.

S5 about to be announced. You can probably get same deal on galaxy s4 for the same price as S3 in 2-3 weeks.
