same here. the last phone i only had for a year but i only kept it for so little because things stopped working on it. plus i switched carriers so i had the ability to upgrade, and my old phone wasn't getting ics i don't think. but i prefer to wait about two years (or at least 18 months) so i can really notice the difference. if i were to get the s3 i'd probably be thinking "gee, it doesn't seem that much faster..." but if i get the s4 when that comes out next year? it'll seem amazing, i'm sure.

i know someone who works for t-mobile though and he upgrades all the time, but then again he also has worked there so long that he gets two free upgrades (yep, any two phones, i hate him) every year. so why not upgrade all the time then?

My G2's due for upgrade in December. I'm so excited, I can't wait to see what's up by then. Hopefully this thread will steer me in the right direction

Word has it that the Galaxy Nexus series is going to expand to 4 different models by the end of the year, so that's something to consider.

Yeah and the s3 doesn't really bore the s2 away spec-wise. Its just a little bigger and has some cool new apps, though if you search xda forums enough, you can find most of them already.

exactly.

(just so it doesn't seem like my two posts are contradicting each other, i love my s2 so if someone were looking to upgrade their phone and liked androids i'd suggest the s3, lol.)

I am a Sprint customer and have the Galaxy S2 and love it. But if you plan on getting a new phone, go with the Galaxy S3.

Wish I could go to the Google I/O event in San Francisco. Always like the freebies they give away.
