    I still don`t want a phone the size of my hand, regardless of who makes it.

    Alright, I`ll take the bait.

    IMO, there are two reasons for buying an iPhone over any other. The first is that the phone has such a huge market that third-party product suppliers make tons of accessories for it - more so than for any other phone. The second is if you have a Mac (and other Apple products), because the integration across these devices is quite well done.

    Barring either of these, I don`t see how the iPhone is better than any other phone out there - and is not as good for many, many people`s needs.

    In my case, I looked at the iPhone, the GS3 and others. I chose the GS3.

    @blanktom:
    Yeah, literally the same premise. They just updated it. I`m guessing thats a slight insult aimed at apple as well somehow.

    Its kind of funny that samsung is making direct attacking commercials. If their phone is that much better, then it will sell better, right? No need to directly downplay a portion of your competition.

    My Samsung has never done me wrong. Why would I pay more for some logo?

    Listen, if anyone is giving away either of them for free, along with paying the monthly bill, I`m in! Please send it on. :-)

    As for me, I use a semi-smart phone on a pay as you go plan ($40/month), with no land line at home. So, sure, the apps that I do have are much slower, but, they work (e.g. GPS, texting, even some games, although, clearly not as nice as exist on iOS or Android). But, considering the phone was almost free and the monthly bill, I`m fine with it. Not hating on these great phones, or their services, just that, well, either one costs too much for my tastes/needs.

    @SmagBoy1: just about any carrier gives away an iPhone 4 or an Android 2.2 phone for free; you just haven`t looked hard enough.

    @schecter5 - Oh if only that were true. Unfortunately, it`s not always the best product that sells the most. Marketing has a lot to answer for, and Apple are particularly good at this. They are also very good at influencing peoples perceptions of what they do and do not need from a device. i.e - you don`t need flash, you don`t need wireless signal, you don`t need a standard micro USB port etc.

    @jendrian - no one gives it away for free, they just increase your price plan so that you are effectively buying the phone in monthly installments.

    @smagboy: newegg.com has at least 2 4g LTE android phones for free, and 4 for less than $50. You just need to look other places than the store. The internet always has the best deals. Walmart.com, newegg.com, amazon.com are all places to get good phones at awesome prices.

    @bataleon: yeah, but that`s true regardless of whether you pay full price for a phone or but.

    phone or not.* (sorry) They do make up the subsided price, but you can`t walk into a store and pay full price for a phone and get a discount on your bill.

    I agree that prepaid is the way to go. Once my contact with verizon is up, I`ll be buying a couple of unlocked phones and trying out a prepaid plan myself.

    And just so we`re clear Apple products are way too overpriced. Like I told a friend today, I like apple products, but anyone who thinks Apple is a leader in innovation these days is blind, and anyone who waits in line for 18 hours for the newest Apple product (when they could have just walked in and bought an Android phone that`s just as good if not better) is just pain stupi

    EmagehtmaI : I`ve been on a prepaid plan since 2001, i`ve saved hundreds of euros.. I don`t phone a lot, short calls or couple of texts. 10 euro charge every two months or so, no plan can get even close to that. But if i use my phone for internet, text all the time etc. prepaid is not the way to go. PS: i don`t have a new smartphone, maybe someday, phone is a phone, not a tiny laptop for me.

    After a company sues you for $1B over complete bullpoo, I think you have to right to an "attack ad". Apple wanted a war, and it looks like they`re getting one.

    Justin is right, Apple had that coming, because they have been playing a petty game. It is good to see a little payback.

    Apple suing people for stealing is a whole mess of pot meets kettle. Without open source to rip off Apple wouldn`t have anything.
