My condolences. I have LogMeIn where I can choose from one of many desktops that have real up to date Flash installed. I do not miss that battery-hog stopgap technology on my phone.

So presumably you'd be fine with a 64gb iPhone, right?

And if Flash is now an "add-on" for Android as I thought it was, you can get flash enabled browsers and apps for the iPhone too. I just don't know why you'd want to, unless it's for work I guess.

And there we have it; we are down to something subjective. I rest my case.

laziness. I have an ipad and a xoom, and tons of differnet cell phones.
I just bought 5 for my girl, and i have just been tired of buying a new phone every 6months to a year. once I get my phone the way i like it, I don;t want to ever cchange it, butthen something new comes out and I have to learn new sh1t and reprogram the phone the way i like it.

Never Ending Radical Dude, I'll take that, my brain is what got me all the toys I've own. Don't get me wrong, I've owned a iphone for a year, have great things to say about it until I switched. Now, I wonder if Apple really cares about it's customers, they make everything so complicated. I had to learn how to use the iphone. I had to google a lot with my iphone. Android just came natural if you know how to use Windows.

I wonder if Griffin or other S3 user frequently play formats unsupported by the 5, or how many truly desire to carry all their stuff around on a removable card as you do.

You can move icons around and not fill pages. I think Android kinda looks like Windows XP.

Screen size is totally personal preference and is not something the S3 does that the iPhone doesn't do. It isn't that kind of feature. Same goes for you not liking the way it looks. Not a tangible feature.

You can run multiple apps.

Widgets are very similar to programs. I suppose that's a feature. A lot of that stuff can be found in the iPhone notification bar.

You can run multiple apps.

iTunes is very streamlined and at best I think you could call the lack of options a draw, because the syncing process can be pretty arcane with Android phones.
There is something for everyone. Android just makes more sense to me. It's hard to go back.

I'll just say this....

...if the iOS interface were that progressive, the jailbreak community wouldn't be so prominent. That's not to say that iOS is bad (..or that the Android interface is "better"), it's just different. I appreciate the level of customization available with the Android OS. I can also appreciate the simplicity of the iOS interface.

Let me just say this. Me and my friends have been customizing our own rigs, over clocking, fiddling with every knob for the past twenty years. We are also nerds with comp sci degrees. Yet we're all rocking iPhones.

So I don't buy this elitist use Android mon/pop use iPhones argument. We know a well designed functional device when we see one. It's the ppl who compare specs and fringe features that are the vain attention wh0res. My phone does what I want. There's no need to argue about "my phone is cooler than yours blah blah blah"

Simultaneous voice and data on Verizon would be a good place to start. It is a serious issue that would affect me daily. You can't navigate and talk on the phone!

There is a lot I like about the iPhone, but a lot I don't as well. Cons still outweigh Pros.

I'm hoping the next iPhone will do simultaneous voice/data and have a bigger battery.

Well said

I love the customization part of the Android OS, there is always something new to do. It is a growing community and I believe in the next few years it will surpass iOS. Apple is nice because it is simple. You open the box and use it.

The 4/4S did didn't they? I know my phone switches to 4G when on the phone. Are you sure you can't use "4G" (3G) while talking on the phone on Verizon?
