It's actually AT&T, not Verizon.

I just wanna clear up something also about the iPhone 5. The iPhone 5 is still the best if you don't consider the price of getting it. It's just becoming too costly for me.

smartphone nub here.
i have a few tester phones with me. 3gs my personal phone with dead wifi card, iphone 5 verizon, iphone 5 sprint, galaxy s3 at&t. i use a gsm network with my 3gs. i use a gsm network cause it only costs $30 a month. which i still feel is kinda high for cellphone use cause i used to use the same gsm network with a minute plan. the way i used it it cost me only about $20 month. but i decided to upgrade to the $30 unlimited calling and texting.
i decided to get the iphone 3gs cause it could pick up free wireless instead of paying for internet service from a more expensive carrier. but now it looks like i'm getting used to wireless internet to the point of wanting my own whenever there is no free wifi. if i do get a carrier with a service plan can i get the bare minimum and have the phone pick up a wireless network at home or work instead of the carrier. i dont want a bill that's $80-90 dollars a month. or even $50 a month for that matter when i have to pay for internet service at home and at work.

i'm mostly interested in apps for the phones. how far behind are android phones and are they catching up or falling back even further? are they getting support?

you realise android is now ahead of apple and outsells them in phones right? That should tell you something haha the android market have millions of apps and games android is simple and intuitive and most of all android is completely open you you don't have to worry about jail breaking it like a iPhone just to change a few things on the interface haha you can completely change the user interface on android without modifying a single thing

And you realize that android is unoptimized with its OS compared to apple right?

Not only that but android phones are made of garbage quality. If I am gonna pay hundreds of dollars for a smart phone it best be good quality. Android phones are just not there.

Drop tests and water submerge tests, all showing the superior quality of iPhone.

People can talk about customization all they want but if you phone is not optimized and shatters at the first sign of trouble, it's useless IMO. thumb.gif

I've had an iphone 3 and 4s and I'm sorry to say the glass in the back cracking and the chipping of the aluminum frame doesn't really make it a quality product as well. Also, how about taking into consideration the hardware inside the phone? If you use old tech do you still consider that quality? I'm not saying the Samsung phones are perfect as well, but it's really all about subjective taste and preference on what direction you want to go.

Seriously this thread should just be closed since fan boys (for both sides) always end up ruining the discussion. Plus the title itself, based on past history always ends up leading to just flame wars. 2cents.gif

you realise the plastic is quality right? Its flimsy so it won't break at the first fall its not lock your gonna see the glass on the iPhone anyway because its going to be covered up by a case because if you dont good luck glueing back on the glass the first time you bump it IMO you realise the galaxy s3 is made to be tough while your pretty iPhone is made well to be pretty androids go deep they provide up to date hardware on cheap phones without all the glamour and no update fragmentation you know why? Because android provides custom firmwares my 5yr old galaxys1 is on android 4.2.2 smooth as butter over clocked to 1.4ghz can your iPhone do that? No you have to jailbreak just to get a animated wallpaper which is supported natively in android LOL good luck with a comeback your gonna need it.
