The death of the iPhone is something I never thought would occur, or would happen slowly as more advancements of technology were placed in other phones. But… oh yes, I actually got another phone besides the iPhone! And that phone is called, “The Galaxy S 3”.
For years I’ve had the iPhone. Years I tell you!! It was the only phone I ever stuck with. As if a spell was over me. Oh yes! In the past, I always was faithful to the ‘Apple” company, was committed to knowing that if I bought their phone, they would help me as the consumer by placing greater advancements in their next phone. But, they waited too long!!! Yes! The iphone simply waited too long to implement things like
1) A bigger screen
2) SD slot
4) And a few other things that I had know idea I wanted until I bought the Samsung Galaxy S 3!!!!
Wow. A few days ago I went into Best Buy. I had to get a new phone. I had my iPhone 3GS for years – literally- and it was moving too slow. I’m a type of person that doesn’t keep up with the Smith’s. I am the Smith’s. LOL. All joking aside, I asked the nice sales girl about a new iPhone. I told her, “Yes, I heard the rumors –again- that the new iPhone was coming out in October or something, but I can’t wait anymore cause this phone I have is on its deathbed.” It started out like this.
I had tons of apps, so I needed the 32 GB iPhone. But I thought the price was too high since the newer iPhone was supposedly coming out in a few months. So she told me the price of the 16 GB iPhone… and then – oh yes- said, “Well, the new Samsung Galaxy S 3 has a SD card slot.”
“Galaxy S what? What is this phone you speak of?” I asked.
“It just came out. And it’s amazing!”
I widened my eyes, demanding, “Take me to this phone you speak of.”
After she finished laughing, she showed me the Galaxy and my eyes glistened! She too is an iphone owner. She took out her iPhone and compared it to the Galaxy and essentially said only a few things about the Galaxy and the phone did the rest.
It had everything that I wanted in the iPhone and more. The screen. SD slot. Flash. Oh, and then she went on about ‘free music”.
“What is this lie about ‘free music’?”
And then she showed me. After I fiddled with the amazing phone, I took out my once beloved iPhone and when I looked at the screen, I squinted. I had no idea that my iPhone had such a tiny screen. The wallpaper on my iPhone was not visible due to the apps covering it up. It looked like a boring library or something. I was under a spell that was finally broken. I dared to look at the other lawn and saw that the grass was greener.
And then, she showed me how the wallpaper on the home screen of the Galaxy S3 was ‘live’ and moved around. “Insane!!!”
So I bought it! Wow. I actually play with my phone now. With the iPhone, the screen was just too small to play with for over 5 minutes or so. LOL. I actually use the Samsung Galaxy S 3 more than my computer! Insane!!!
So now, this is my breakup with iPhone. I must get this out of the way before continuing.
I’ve waited patiently for you to fulfill my simple requests. But, perhaps your arrogance grew so much that it blinded you. Perhaps you thought that with so many restrictions on your device that we would simply stand for it always. But no! Always doesn’t exist in the phone world. Just be happy for me. I found a phone that – for now – isn’t arrogant at all, has many friends who don’t argue with them and actually has everything I ever wanted in a phone that I ‘ve waited for years to have. Ohhhh, Iphone. I had no idea that your real name was ‘me phone’. Me, me, me. Well ‘I’ is over with. Shhhh. I know. It’s rough. We went through a lot together. But, you lost me that day at Best Buy. You once had me at “I phone”. And now, Samsung had me at “Sd Slot” and “big screen’ and “amazing, fricken phone!!!!” Shhhhh. It’s okay. I am not going to wait for you, iPhone, anymore. I am not going to buy you one day, only to hear an announcement a few months later, that a new version of you is coming out with features that you easily could have put on your past phone, but didn’t due to ‘greed’ or ‘something’ that I’ll never understand. You and your “not wanting to change the design crap” ruined our relationship! Why? Because you’re just a phone, not a ‘car’. But the Samsung Galaxy S3; that’s more than a phone. It’s a device that studied and listened to the needs of phone owners. And after listening, answered rather than ignored because they thought they were so good that only they could change things if they wanted, rather than changing to fit the consumers needs. Farewell.
Back to the Galaxy. Wowwwwwwww! You see, let me explain about how I perceive a piece of merchandise. For some reason I am very picky about what I buy. I don’t buy a lot at all, because of this reason. Something can be perfect in every way, but have the smallest flaw that I see, and I won’t buy it. I hate that! For instance, if there was a car that was beautiful, but there was a – I don’t know- logo on the front of it that I thought shouldn’t be there, I won’t get it. If there was a cool watch and that watch’s only flaw to me was the hands were silver instead of black, I won’t get it. LOL. I hate that about me. But that’s who I am. That’s why no other phone compared to the iPhone until now. I mean, in no way am I self-proclaiming that I know what taste is. But, I have a pretty good track record. Just saying.
Ohhh, and I could read my books on the S3 without squinting!
Moral? Wait. I didn’t buy the last 2 iPhone’s that came out. I waited, either for that iPhone that fulfilled my needs, or till my phone died, or till another company answered my needs; something that I never thought was possible. So get the Samsung Galaxy S 3!!! Your eyes will thank you. That’s should be their slogan since the iPhone followers are aging. LOL.
