I upgraded my phone last night to the S3 thinking it was the latest Galaxy on the market. I was wrong it's the S4.
Anyone have the S3 or the S4? I'm not sure whether to keep the 3 as I've dropped my monthly cost and it's still a good phone, or increase the monthly payment slightly for the 4.

MrDD has had an S3 for about a year and he likes it, my brother has an S4 which MrDD and me both really want! I'd have to pay nearly £300 to get the S4 on the same contract I've currently got so probably won't be doing that, but I'm considering getting the S4 mini instead when it comes out this month.
I wouldn't get an S3 though especially if you're on a 24 month contract, yes it is a good phone but in 2 years time won't be so great, if the payments aren't that much more I'd go for the S4.

I have the S3 and it's great. Though I've played with the S4 and I really like that too. They're both well thought out phones.
Depends if you're going to get the use out as to whether you can justify the extra cost really. I use the camera, though the camera in the S4 is far superior, all of my pics upload to Dropbox automatically which is cool, the Google sat nav application is free and much better than my old Garmin, I've got music on it so use it as an MP3 player, web browsing is quick and easy and of course Candy Crush.
You know if you get the S4 they'll bring out the S5 don't you.

That's what I'm thinking DD, the S3 will be old by that time. I need to call them, thankfully I have a 14day cooling off period, I won't even take it out the box if I go with the S4. Need to call and get prices on it first.
Sshh I'm not that techy, text call internet camera really but like the sat nav app idea that will be very helpful - as long as network coverage is good.

Oh yes, google maps is great! I use it all the time You'd probably be fine with the S3, but I just know I like to have the latest despite me not really needing all the stuff it has!

DD to be fair I'd probably be ok with a bog standard Nokia but that's pointless if I'm paying X per month on contract.

I've had the s3 for about 8m and I love it, the camera is fab, better than my proper camera. I've never played with the s4 so can't compare.

Absolutely, you want something decent if you paying a lot for it!
02/07/2013 at 10:34
Hmmm I'm going to call about the S4, can't believe I thought the 3 was the latest. D'oh!
02/07/2013 at 11:35

Tbh ive not used much of it yet. But so far so good, the screen is so much brighter and clearer which makes a big diff.
