In all the 27 years I've been using cellphones, the evolving technology in the last six years has caused me whiplash. Just as you purchase a phone, it seems to be outdated in six months. Nothing short of the PC era.
I have always contended that rather than concentrating and exhausting all energy on non-mechanical hardware, one must use their money wisely(within their means) to purchase the most advanced device they can to prolong longevity potential.
While Samsung has held back incorporating a metal fabrication in its hardware, it has been offering a very solid experience for adapting to forever changing trends or technology.
I have owned the S3 with hardly any issues with the exception of having to replace the battery two months... (continues)
Based on your long response i'm left with trying to decide one of two things. You work for Samsung, or you have impossibly low standards. Samsung products are crap, plain and simple. Cheap, plastic, camera is absolutely atrocious, etc etc. Had the S4 for a couple months and what a POS....had to take ten pics to get one good one, have read the S5 is no better. Android is played out. I moved to Windows and could not be happier. The camera on the Lumia is untouchable and the OS is buttery smooth and a total breath of fresh air compared to android and ios. And to top it off you waited two hours in line for this crap? lol
wibndows hav the best cameras out there, along with a few sony devices ive noticed i had an s4 and nowhere and have known plenty of people that had it as well not one complaint of the camera may have just been an issue with your device
My GS3 ran like a top. The only thing I had to do to it, was replace the battery two months ago. Unless they just haven't said anything, several family and friends have not mentioned any issues with any of their 3s and 4s. It is my hope that my S5 will duplicate the success. So far, it has been a joy to own.
Waiting in line is not somethine we planned on doing. My friends have had their contracts up for awhile and were looking to try something different than Apple. They asked if I wanted to tag along and check out the new S5 on launch day. The more they messed around with it, they found themsleves wanting it. We talked about it and decided as long as we were there, we might as well do it up and wait in line rather than going back. The one friend lives 30 miles away.
I do not work for Samsung. I had always been an HTC man. HTC simply did not offer what I was looking for two years ago and they did not implement what I still feel relevant in my needs and wants today. Samsung has provided for my prerequisites.
