Okay, Android fanbois...

My last two phones have been iPhones, and while I like the (jailbroken) platform, the iPhone 5 announcement did not blow me away. I'm getting a new phone from work soon (which will be both my work and personal phone), and am weighing the iPhone 5 vs the Galaxy S3 (anything better on the horizon?). I borrowed a Samsung Galaxy Nexus from work for the next two weeks to play around with (only Android phone I could get my hands on).

As of this weekend, I'll be traveling most of the following week, but I'll check in here as much as I can, and I will have the phone with me and using it daily (though not with my number on it).

I've been talking to my friends who have android devices, but they're not nearly the zealots as the folks around here. So, time to put up or shut up - take these 10 days and convince me that the S3 is the way to go. Tell me what I should do with this phone while I have it - show me the power of the 'droid. My world is your oyster.

Go.

Really? My last phone was an EVO, and the battery was removable. That didn't stop the phone from totally sucking the last year that I had it (it rebooted constantly)

I've been researching both the EVO LTE and the SGS3 and while the EVO's battery isn't "removable", it also isn't soldered to the motherboard. It would be a pain to do often, but you can switch out the battery.

I need to check these two out up close, the biggest difference for me thus far is the SGS3 has double the RAM of the evo. I still have and still like my EVO 4G, so I'm kind of torn at the moment. I need to check out the differences between Touchwiz and the more pure android system. Wasn't even concerned about it until Daface mentioned it and some reviews mention it as well.

You can go ahead and **** the hell off, thank you very much.

at you thinking that MEN even use the word "fanboy" - it's a word used by kids to belittle people who don't agree with their opinion, but who have no real ammo to support their claim. The OP was clearly meant to be mocking, in a tongue-in-cheek manner, hence the use of "fanbois". I wouldn't expect you to understand such nuance, though.

Enjoy your MANliness...

Strange, it is working for me on an unrooted SII... download from the website NOT the Play Store and if it doesn't work go to the Store and add the foxfi add on. should work.

The IPhone 5 announcement was a huge letdown, and giant step sideways for Apple imo.

I have the SGI and while it is a little old, it still does everything I need it to do. I will stick with Android.

This is awesome. I had no idea this existed and I can FINALLY replace the icons located at the bottom of the screen that were locked in until now.

Are you on Sprint? I tried to downloaded the add on (already had Foxfi installed) and it didn't work. I un-installed and Foxfi and tried to re-download it from the site. They have a special section for Sprint where they noted they were still working on a workaround for Epic Touch (SGSII) and SGSIII phones. Tried to download the apk and it would not install. Checked my downloads screen and nothing.

Not sure if Folders was an option on tw, or if it came with the 4.x upgrade. They are available on the MySprintID. I like them because I can squeeze 10 games into 1 folder and it doesn't take that much real estate.

Was there a reason you did not want to root your device?

Sprint will support rooted devices

I am intimidated by the process. Don't want to get 1/2 way through and run into some of the problems I have read about "bricking" the phone.
