I'm thinking the same thing. Probably get the next Nexus myself.Originally Posted by npro1464
I'm still happy with mine. I mean, ya my wife's maxx isn't pregnant and is fast. But the pentile screen annoys me. Connectivity is a huge issue as I travel and need service, so Samsung is out. Me personally, i can wait as the tbolt does everything the new phones do. I want the new HTC if they can get a big battery in a smaller design or the razr hd if they get it with the maxx battery.
But to each thier own. Some people want a pretty blue phone. Lol
Well I got the s3 and yall arnt missing much my sis is loving my old tbolt and I miss it had way better reception! I plan on getting the next HTC flagship on vzw and selling the s3 on ebay or sumn..Originally Posted by 2001400ex

I bought the GS3 the day it came out, used it for 2 days, but I actually missed the Thunderbolt. Sure the GS3 looks nice, and I do love the larger screen, but the battery life was worse than my TB with the extended battery, signal seemed a bit worse, etc. I'm waiting to the next real flagship, I'm hoping the RAZR HD has the same battery as the MAXX, if so I'll probably pick that up. I would have got the One X if it was on Verizon...
I swear I've posted on this thread twice now, and they didn't show up. Oh well.
A few months ago I wanted to trade my tb in on anything, I was going to pay several hundred to dump this turd and just wanted to throw it out. I'd charge it over night, unplug it in the morning, and be lucky to make it home at night before it died. If I wanted to talk on my way home I had to plug in in the car to keep it alive.
Then in May I changed jobs and moved out of the steel and concrete "office" building I was in. My tb will easily last 2-3 days on a charge now, and when I've had to go back to my old office for a few hours I can watch the battery drain. My old boss used to have to keep his LG Revo plugged in all day in order to make it home, he left that office and has seen the same thing. Funny how much that environment makes a difference.
So now I love it, and we started getting 4G a couple weeks ago off and on, it's been on full time here at my house for the last couple days now.
I bought the SGSIII full price to keep my unlimited data, which stung because I bought my TBolt full price because I wasn't eligible for an upgrade. I definitely don't want to spend $600 on a new phone annually.
But the SGSIII fixes a few issues I had with the TBolt. My biggest gripe was the proximity sensor that wouldn't ever turn off the phone when I put it to my face (yes, I've used compressed air to clean it but that only works for a few days). I still can't get used to the feature actually working on my SGSIII and have to look at the screen to make sure it's off.
ICS is a marked improvement in Android and the SGSIII hardware seems like it should keep me happy for longer than a year, especially with 2GB RAM. Since it is such a popular phone I know I'll get JB, which was never going to happen with the TBolt.
I also don't care for the way the TBolt aged. It looks thoroughly worn and very rough after just a year. I feel like the SGSIII will be easier to keep looking new. The entire back is easily replaceable, and the entire front is glass. The sides are the only area that could potentially see wear. I'm just hoping they are molded in color and not painted but time will tell.
Mine still looks great.... I designed a custom skin for it and have a case on it. And a screen protector.
One gripe I have.... When Im talking on the phone, I often somehow hit something with my face and hang up on people. How does that happen and how can I make it not happen?
