I was pretty sure until today I was going to hold out for the Samsung Note 2. Today I paid a visit to the VZW store and they had an LG phone that is the same screen size as the Note 2, and I knew right then that it would be too big for my use. So, I looked at the selection and came to the conclusion my next phone is probably the Galaxy S3. I can officially upgrade on October 7 (next Sunday), so I have a few days to think this over. What do you like about the phone? What don't you like about the phone? Is it worth the $199 upgrade? Lastly, for those who rooted their S3, is it pretty simple to go through the rooting process? How about the bootloader that's locked? And, it appears there's not a HDMI port on this phone? Thanks in advance.
