My wife is due for an upgrade next week - and she wants to get a Galaxy S3. She loves mine.
So I have the option of just giving her mine, and then getting something else to use the upgrade for.
I'm thinking either the Droid DNA or Maxx HD - anyone know how they fare against the S3?
I love the S3, don't get me wrong - the only complaints that I have are:
1) sunlight screen performance is horrid - would like to get something I can actually see during the day outside with my sunglasses on. My buddie's iphone 5 fares much better than my S3 in the sunlight.
2) cheap and slippery materials. I came directly from a moto maxx, and it felt more sturdy. Plus I get small little scratches all over the S3's screen, while my Maxx never had that problem. I dropped my Maxx a few times, and never on the S3 - explain that one?
3) not a fan of the OS compared to stock android or moto's OS. I even like HTC's sense better.
However GS3 is awesome in every other way. Great battery, superb camera (for a phone), screen quality (indoors only), great reception, etc. It's overall just a great phone.
Wouldn't mind the DNA though. Seems to have everything I want - nicer screen screen and better outdoors quality, bigger (I have huge hands, so I don't mind the extra size), sturdy materials, better OS (opinion), wireless charging seems cool. Looks like I'd be taking a hit on the camera quality though - which isn't a huge deal I guess.
Maxx HD seems like a great all around phone that does pretty much every good, and nothing bad. Favorite OS, other than stock android. Battery is a huge plus - I really miss my old MAXX's longevity.
Anyone in the same conundrum? Any advice? I'm not sure what to do - part of me just wants something different so my wife and I don't have the exact same phone =)
