Today and went to AT&T to test drive the SGS3, while surfing the net I noticed several times that ads kept popping up and you had to X them out to continue surfing. Has anyone noticed while contemplating a switch? I'm not sure what it was running...ICS or JB

If it's an S3 in AT&T then it is running ICS. I personally own and spend a lot of time around the S3 and other android phones. They are nice and perfect for many people, However, what always draws me back to the iPhone and iOS Ecosystem is the simplicity and the fluidity of the OS. Android still faces slight lags throughout the interface and "force closes" can't say that I experience those on iOS

OP's not saying Android is better. OP's saying he tried Android, but couldn't deal with its annoyances, but didn't want to post it in the non-iOS sub forum so they wouldn't be savagely killed by ignorant rabid fandroids

Good thinking, OP.

haha

Once this gets move in that sub-forum, don't even go there, OP. But their comments (hate on Apple and even iFans) in every tech article praising iP5, make me giggle. :D

Tyvm for stating the way I should have! I'm a huge apple fan and don't really wanna switch but I like the larger screen of the SGS3, but like just about everything else about the ip4s which is what I have. If the ip5 had gone wider and longer I wouldn't even think about switching...
