I'm up for a renewal and currently have an iPhone. I'm debating between the iPhone and the Samsung Galaxy. The S III will be released soon, the iPhone 5 somewhere in the Fall, I believe.

Shall I wait for the iPhone 5? Or should I go for the Galaxy S III? Or get the iPhone 4S?

What would you do? Halp!

I switched last summer to the Galaxy s2 from iphone 3g. I love it and I'm waiting for the galaxy s3. My dh also prefers the samsungs over the apples. I love the big screen and ease of use.
If you are going for the iphone though, I would wait for the 5 since it will be out soon.

Thank you for your input! Yes, I saw the Galaxy last week and I really liked the bigger screen. It also felt more lightweight than the iPhone and the screen was beautiful and vibrant.

I don't mind waiting a bit for the S3, but who knows how long it's gonna take until the iPhone 5 comes out. I'm too impatient to wait so long

There's also the HTC One X (not sure who your carrier is), on AT&T. It's a pretty solid offering

Thanks, Charles! I'm not that crazy about the HTC phones, I'm afraid.

I don't normally condone waiting ("Just wait for the iPhone 6, it comes out in 2 years!") but considering that the iPhone 5 may come as early as June or at the latest September, I think I'd just wait for it.

Yeah, I'm hoping for an announcement in June at the WWDC. But September? Argh. I don't know if I can wait 5 months.

Im in a similar predicament!... I'm waiting on the 5...

The rumors indicate the possibility of a June release at the WWDC 2012 and a website that sells parts for the phones apparently briefly listed parts for the new 5 (the home button) and then pulled it which hints to a June release also... but I've also read that there are some hardware shortages that could put the release at October... I'm hoping its a June release ....I'm either gonna go with the 5 or a 4S if the 5 is not released in June cause I cant wait longer than that...

I'm hoping it will be released then, too. Fingers crossed. If not, then I'm going to pick either the Samsung Galaxy or the iPhone 4S.
