So I want an GS3 but then I realized that an iPhone will have a better resale value in 2 years when I upgrade again. I got an iPhone 4 two years ago and right now I'm about to sell it for $300 (the price of a new one unlocked is $500). Because of this, I know Apple products will have a great resale value when I am out of contract. It actually makes me some money over two years if I buy the phone subsidized (which I do). The GS3 is a great phone and I actually like it more since its a change from iOS but since its resale will be like $50 - $100 in two years, iPhone seems like a no brainer. If you were in my shoes, would you still buy the an alternate phone you like or buy the iPhone. In my point of view, they are the same functionality. PS. I know this question will come up, but I will be reselling overseas where iPhones are not available subsidized and prices are heavily inflated (iphone 5 unlocked is $1200). I will be on vacation so I'm not going out of my way to do this.
