Once I felt that Android had matured enough, in both software & hardware, I made the switch and haven't looked back, that goes way back to the Motorola Atrix 4G days, the phone that not only made Android my OS of choice but reassured my faith in Motorola (but thats another story in and of itself...). Ive been using only top end android handsets since and Ive been totally happy with it (last phone was a Galaxy S2, Galaxy not for a short while and now the S3) I still have a iPhone in the family (wife has my old 4), I use it now and it just doesn't seem as special as it was. I wanna say its Sammy's OLED tech that bit me and wont let go, its awesome really (but thats also another story for another time lol).
what was I talking about again... ramble ramble ramble ra...
A new car built by my company leaves somewhere traveling at 60 mph. The rear differential locks up. The car crashes and burns with everyone trapped inside. Now, should we initiate a recall? Take the number of vehicles in the field, A, multiply by the probable rate of failure, B, multiply by the average out-of-court settlement, C. A times B times C equals X. If X is less than the cost of a recall, we don't do one."

Does that mean their majority of customers will drop them because of it? No. But I've read of more then a few people making the switch or at least considering the switch because of the lawsuits Apple is pushing on competitors. And if only a handful of people actually do it and they like it it will become a domino effect.
That and the new iPhone apparently to be changing up their dock connector of the IP5 will render everything accessory wise for the previous Iphones useless adds just another thing to push people past it.
iPhone market share has already been dropping. I see no reason why the next version will reverse that trend.
Just knowing about the lawsuits and about the new connector is enough for many people to take a look at the alternatives instead of blindly upgrading to the next iteration of the iPhone. Getting customers to look at the competition is a sure fire way to lose customers.
The new connector forces people to do things differently. Remember what happened when Netflix told their customers they were going to change things, even though it probably made no difference at all to the level service they used? This connector might not be a Netflix moment for Apple, but it probably won't be good.
I was just forced to upgrade (had a Samsung Epic 4G) after I forgot it was in my pocket when I went to the water park. I got a Galaxy S3 and I have to say I am absolutely blown away by this phone! I love it. Good stuff. I miss having an actual keyboard but other than that, I wouldn't give this phone up for any other phone on the market right now.
I just got this phone about a week ago. Loving it so far, but I had a question: any battery saving tips? Even if I don't use the phone at all and it just sits at my desk, never turned turn the screen on once in 8-9 hours, it'll go from 100% to 80% in that amount of time. My iPhone would drop to 95% at the absolute max.
I want to turn off push notifications for email, but can't find the settings. I'm using Gmail and I don't need an email pushed to me every single time. How do I set it to go hourly or every other hour?
Any other tips to help with battery? Is there a way to disable 4G on AT&T? I don't even pay for the 4G speeds so I have no use for it...how do I turn it off?
There I have the option of gsm/hspa/LTE, gsm/hspa, gsm only, or hspa only.
I picked the gsm/hspa option. It switches back and forth between those two now but NEVER goes into LTE, even though I live in an LTE zone.
LTE only activates if I switch back to gsm/hspa/LTE.
