My Ride: '99 Techno Violet M3
Just picked up my iPhone 5 to read a text from E46Mango and it turned off in my hand. Time for another one.

While I have never viewed any drop test videos, I will say that the main reason that I didn't opt for an S3 (..aside from the fact that I feel the phone is too big) is because it felt cheap. I definitely wasn't impressed with the build quality at all. My Google Nexus S feels better built than the S3.

I ordered mine through Sprint yesterday, but I am unsure whether or not I will keep the phone. I may just sell it on Ebay (..I've seen them go for as much as $900) and make some money off of it. Spend $200 to make $700. LOL!

I think after using it for a few days you might warm up to it. My old 4 still feels way more solid and enticing when I hold it, but it's old technology and just because something is heavier in my hand doesn't mean it's actually better.

Time to take it back, looks like you have some lint in there.

Tock, I think you just have some bad luck man. There are over 5,000,000 of these phones made, there are going to be some bad eggs.

The thing is, try doing this with Samsung or Nokia, I garauntee that switching a bad phone out through APPLE is MUCH easier than any other cell phone manufacturer.

Yeah, I'm gonna have this one exchanged. The shut down thing isn't cool. And don't worry about convincing me, I already know. Apple till death. I read the book. I believe in Steve.

Wait a sec... You pay $60 for unlimited everything FOR TWO PHONES? Or you pay $60 PER phone? As in $120 is your full bill.

Samsung has that problem with a large percentage of their phones, they're too lightweight, and it makes them feel cheap lol. Luckily I didn't feel that was the case with either the Nexus s or Galaxy Nexus.

The iPhone is definitely very solid feeling and looks good, not cheap feeling at all. But for me iOS just doesn't cut it and no amount of brushed aluminum can change that. Like others have said, an iphone 5 with Jelly Bean installed would be the best of both worlds Maybe iOS will work out for you better though.

What specifically do you want in iOS other than the ability to change your icons and make your phone an unusable hell for anyone but yourself?

Wow really? You need to ACTUALLY USE the phone before you continue to about the iOS.
'ACTUALLY USE' does not mean play with your friend's iPhone 5 for 20 minutes...

yea, I'd like to see this home screen too... No way it can be more ugly than the phone itself, that's impossible. Oh wait, that's right, it's a HUGE PITA to take a screenshot on a Android device...

EW... You have to use this ugly ass thing everyday? I feel for you Jeffro....

$30 per phone, two phones so the total charge is $60. This is a family plan with other family members so we split the bill. Single best way to do it.
