I just got the Samsung Galaxy S3 a few weeks ago and I love it. I had a Droid X for just over two years and it was starting to 'go'. My contract ended in mid August and I was waiting to see what the iPhone 5 was going to be about before I decided what the new one was going to be and wouldn't you know I lost it a week before the announcement. I was going to be phone-less for the week (shocking, I know) and my husband finally said "why? Your two year old Droid kicked my (work) iPhone 4S' butt every time they went head to head, stick with the android". Apparently I needed a real person to cut through the Apple hype for me! I really like the Galaxy and I still love the android over the iPhone. I do have an iPad so I'm not Apple illiterate and I snag hubby's phone when we are out sometimes, but I do just like the android better. And the Galaxy best when Verizon was willing to woo me to re-sign a contract since I was a "free agent". I still have a few minor things to figure out, but out of the box it was fantastic.
