    Currently rocking a bionic. I take many pictures with it but the camera sucks
    . The wife says I can get the S3 if I keep it for 2 years. Wait for something better or keep the S3? Thanks.

    Hmmmmmm. My wife would never restrict me like that... just give her the "please honey" look when you want a different device lol.

    But as Cereal Killer said, it looks like a solid device, I'd get it and an extended battery and be happy.

    I'm thinking if doing this for my son.. idk yet :)

    DROID RAZR MAXXIMIZED!!!! PREPARE TO BE VANQUISHED!!!

    Look at the other galaxy phones like like s and s2. Both phones are still competitive against other new phones on the market. They may not be the best, but are definitely still considered good phones. It will be one of, if not the best android phones on the market to date.

    I understand its great now, but where will phones be in 12 months? 18? It only took 10 months for the bionic to seem like a thick, small screened, aged OS, device.

    Thats because the bionic was that when it came out. The bionic was already behind the curve when it was released. The s3 will be setting the curve. There will always be a better phone, but with the s3 you will at least stay competitive as long as possible.

    The bionic WAS and IS ahead of the curve. The s3 is not the start of the next generation of phones. Its still dual core. The processor is just a better dual core. Within the next 18 months there will be WAY better phone.the bionic is still Badass and the s3 isn't a big enough jump yet if you want it to stay competitive for the next couple years. It's just overly hyped right now until the next big phone comes out

    The bionic is not that good of a phone. The s3 has a top of the line screen 2gb of ram which no phone has right now. Best battery life on tests besides the RAZR maxx. Gorilla glass 2.0 removable battery although the stock battery is large at 2,100mah sd card.The best dual core out works great with lte and 28nm so better battery life. Why do ppl want quad core when our phones OS can't utilize it yet? That's like getting a v8 that can only use 4 cylinders at a time. U can sit her and keep waiting because there will always be something better on the horizon. Right now the s3 is the top of the line phone out it is ur best choice to be future proof. Only reason I say don't get it is if u don't like touchwiz.

    yeah I I plan on getting the s3 and keeping it for at least that long since that'll be my last upgrade before the unlimited data gets taken away. I am also coming from a DROID bionic I got off contract, the locked bootloader makes it suck and as cereal killer said the s3 will hold up well over a two year span, it may still "only" have a dual core processor, but it's a 1.5 dual core and it has 2 gigs of ram which I don't think any other phone out has.

    Haha "still dual core". What other phone in the US is any more then that? LTE is a much more beneficial upgrade then quad core with 3g. And of course there will be something better out within 18 months, I never said there wouldn't be. But the s3 will still be able to hold its own in that time frame. No phone is a BIG JUMP. They are all small jumps from the previous.

    And Bionic is still ahead of the curve? Lol gtfo with that bull****
