    Well the case choice is down to two...

    The Musubo Retro (the other day I said mesh and that was wrong).

    I like the Red and also the White one.

    OR.....

    The UAG (Urban Armor Gear)

    Probably the white one. They also come in black and Rust (orange).

    If you go Android make sure that you get the Amazon Appstore application. They give away a free Android app every day.

    Thanks for the link...read some stuff there that convinced me that the cases I listed above are the ones I will be choose from when I finally order a case.

    Also liked what was said about the Dock charger with the extra battery charger built in.

    The My Daily Free Amazon App?

    Is that the one you are talking about.

    I have a similar free/price track app on my current phone and have found some decent apps with it.

    Also there is a site appspy.com that I visit on a regular basis for price drops or free apps...is there a similar site like that for the android apps?

    Not sure about appspy.com, never been there.

    I have both the Play Stor and Amazons App Store. I like the daily free app. You can find some good ones up for 0 cents on a good day.

    Good thread, Paint. I think you will love your S3. I certainly do mine.

    I've had an S3 for 2 months now. Love it. The two main complaints I have is the battery life can be off and on. Sometimes it last just the day and is close to dying at night. Other days it still at 70% and this is using it the same amount. I think it has to do with my office and the limited service I get there?? If I put it on the window seal I get some signal, but majority of the time it's searching for signal.

    The other is, if your pushing it, it gets pretty warm.

    Holy crap, look at the display on the HTC Droid DNA. Kind of pointless given the eye can't detect the difference, but it sort of highlights that we're reaching a technology point on smart phones where the technological improvements are sometimes ... well, meaningless.

    I'm at the store looking at the new mini iPad. The black model exhibits the same issue as the black iphone 5 lol. Crappy anodized paint job IMO.

    I'm getting an upgrade from T-Mobile tomorrow.

    Galaxy s3 or the Galaxy note 2?

    Can't decide. Any suggestions?

    I was leaning towards the Note 2 b/c its a "phablet"(phone.tablet) but the size of it doesn't look like something you easily slide into a pocket so I'm having second thoughts.

    I've always been an android guy(no problems with Iphones, but Tmo doesn't carry them, so I don't really bother with which is better or worse, I just focus on what I can actually get) so the S3 looks like it may be a better fit for me. Everyone that I know that has one or the other(s3 or note 2) love their phones, so I'm torn.

    They actually told me they can save me 20-30 bucks per month on what I'm currently paying per month in addition to getting new phones, so I'm pretty excited either way. I know a bunch of you guys are tech savvy and could steer me in the right direction.
