Spawned in the horrendous heat of a Los Angeles winter, James was born with an incessant need to press buttons. Whether it was the car radio, doorbells on Halloween or lights, James pushed, pressed and prodded every button. No elevator was left unscathed, no building intercom was left un-rung, and no person he’s known has been left un-annoyed.

  1. angry us cellular g s 2 owner

    The galaxy s 2 is available on us cellular and has been since it came out! Get your facts strait before you publish them on the internet!!!

  2. I used to have perfect vision but now absolutely must use reading-glasses for any close-up work. I know this is sour-grapes, but for me the GS2’s 800×480 res is much easier on the eyes. For instance, the GS2 has four app icons in a home screen row whereas the GS3 has five, but each one is slightly smaller. Plus there’s the awesomeness of the AMOLED display. (I’m a photography nut.)
    I looked at a GS3 in the store and confirmed that I’m probably better off with the GS2 regardless out of concern for eyestrain, and I don’t play action games anyway so the extra processing power doesn’t figure in (for me) either.
    But If my vision was still perfect, I might already have the GS3 even though I got my GS2 only four months ago. That said, if the iPhone 5 features a 5″ display, I might take a look and consider getting that and a tablet to move my ‘droid apps over to. (I already have a boat-load of iTunes apps because I own an iPod 3 but now don’t use THAT anymore except as an mp3 player in the car.)
    And on and on it goes, right?
    : )

  3. My SII has ICS – it’s an easy manual upgrade. Since the upgrade, battery life is much improved as well (with juice defender anyway). The SII is a great phone to be stuck with for the next 2 years. The next greatest phone is always another month away. Just get the latest and greatest when the next upgrade cycle hits.

      It’s a tough sell. I had the Epic 4G Touch, and there’s no way I’d switch to the GS3 for Sprint, especially if there’s no 4G included. Plus I really liked the design of the GSM version; I wouldn’t be keen on trading it in for a much larger phone at full price, or even half price.
