This last Friday I got the Samsung Galaxy S3 for Verizon. It is beyond the best phone on the market now. It is lightning fast (especially with Verizons 4G LTE) and the screen size is awesome. Its running ICS 4.0.4. It has every feature you look for in a smart phone as well as NFC, and Samsung's S beam. It goes way beyond the limits of any smartphone and I believe it will be the iphone killer. I hope everyone here considers to purchasing it as it is so far the greatist phone out there and availiable on 5 US carriers.
With that said, It has been a great experience here and I hope you all learn and help others as much as I did.
