Just before Christmas, I saw a Best Buy special for the Samsung Galaxy S III. It was $100 off, but it meant a 2-year commitment to a terrible provider.
Ok, all cellphone providers are terrible. AT$T is bad technically and bad customer service. Verizon is mediocre technically and terrible customer-service wise. Sprint has more gaps in their coverage than the Raiders pass coverage and so does T-Mobile. Can’t say any of those companies have any redeeming qualities.
They all suck.
Anyway, I became enamored with the S III’s big screen. Look at it compared to the iPhone 4:
See, the Samsung is huge. The screen is big, and its a high-quality screen. The only thing wrong with it is, the Android apps suck. They like to quit while you’re using them. Actually, that’s not the only thing wrong with the S III. The camera sucks out loud. The voice quality sucks, too. For the size of the device, the app icons are tiny. I suspect I can make the icons bigger, but why bother? I shouldn’t have to.
I’m stuck with this thing for 22 more months. I suppose I’ll get used to it, but I’ll know to go back to the latest iteration of iPhone, no matter what the size of the screen is.
Galaxy S 3: Highly overrated.
