    I'm glad that an app, or a certain type of app, does not dictate my tech buys. :)

    I still don't understand why people make things up about the GS3. I never have to close anything except the occasional app I haven't used for days and I get 2 days battery life easily. Best smartphone battery life I ever had in my life. No freezing or crashes or lags etc.

    Sometimes I wonder. Are these people just ******ed or making things up? I choose to be positive and respect humanity enough to say they are making things up rather than being ******ed.

I'm sure they wouldn't mind at all, and if they complained, you could just say "chill dude," right?

    Seriously, I am happy that you're happy with your new ecosystem. Enjoy. Go head over there to talk about it, and we won't bother you over there about how happy we are that our phones don't crash and freeze several times a day (unlike our Android devices).
    You sound a lot more vocal about it then his post was. his post was actually quite harmless until you turned it into a pissing contest with your lies.

    Sold my lumia 810 and went back to android. Got a meizu MX. My wife has my galaxy note

    I love wp but I just need a more full blown mobile device. I need background downloads and I need some apps/widgets to refresh earlier than 30 minutes, which wp doesn't allow for "live" tiles unless its the email, SMS, phone notifications. Nothing live about those tiles at all. The 30 min minimum for live tile refresh is a joke.

    I moved on from an HTC Titan II to a Galaxy Note II and it is no comparison. The Note II even beats out my wife's Lumia 920, no phone can touch it at the moment IMO.

    No way Android haters are worse than iPhone haters. iPhone haters may even be worse than iPhone lovers.

    Palm OS had the best library of medical apps. Bar none.

    Surprised to hear this. My wife is a registered nurse and soon to be family nurse practitioner and she is all about finding medical apps and such to complete her daily tasks formulating dosages, cross referencing prescriptions, etc. From our findings Apple seems to have the major developers catering to them the most but she will not give into buying an iPhone or iPad simply for that factor alone.

    The Xperia S is probably not the best representation of Android devices. It got its moment in the spotlight but it was short lived due to many shortcomings and lack of real support.

    Check this out: The Largest Selection of Medical & Nursing PDA Software Online

    I thought Palm T/X PDAs were pretty much required during nursing school. You can find mint examples on eBay for about $50-$75 all day long.

    Yeah they were recommended but it wasn't enforced. My wife did very well with Epocrates suite for BB at that time, now she's moved to Android and uses the same software on her Android device.

    To each his own. I went to WP8 from Android and can get family updates quicker, share pics easier, find data easier, text faster, etc. Battery life is twice as good as my Evo Shift, wireless charging rocks, phone is rock solid, screen is glorious, etc. Go with what works for you, but implying Android is better is simple ignorance.

    I think the duck has an excellent point. If you want to jump just do it. If we all did what you're doing everytime we switched to a new os these forums would be filled with thousands of people wanting to share their 'unique' dramas on why they switched.

    So no thanks, just go. It'll give you a chance to chill out too ;)

    I'm guessing you haven't used a note 2.

    Battery lasts forever. I'm talking avg 5, 6 hours of screen on time without worrying about screen brightness and not worrying about turning off extra stuff such as gps and bluetooth.

    And don't give me that "because it has a big battery" crap. It has a huge screen to light up, multitasking like crazy especially with those multi windows and unlike windows phone, the android widgets can refresh in under 30 minutes.

    All of these other 5 inch phones coming out still can't compare to the note 2, they are all just big phones. Samsung has actually made use of the note 2 size with multi windows and wacom digitizer.

    What were its perceived shortcomings? I've been quite happy with mine.
