I'm sure it is :)
I myself ended up buying a Galaxy S3, "like most people"...
The reasons behind it:
- It's wildly popular, meaning it's better supported by third-party providers (hopefully). I originally had a Razr i which isn't very well supported.
- Battery life is better than most of the competition. It's not as good as the Razr i's, though... After 14 hours of slow activity on my S3, I'm down to 17% battery. Still, it mean I can probably use it for an entire day. I can simply have a spare battery and charge it alongside it...
- Out of all phones I had in my hands, this was the sexiest in my opinion. I've always found it beautiful, always will. My girlfriend doesn't understand me. I guess it's in the eye of the beholder etc.
- It is, basically, the most balanced phone of all -- there's always a phone that does something better than it does, but it beats them on all other counts.
The main drawback, as silly as it sounds, is that I really can't get used to the huge width (70.6mm), even phones that are 5mm narrower have a better grip in my hands. Considering modern smartphones are all pretty fragile (apart maybe from Apple's stuff), it's something that bothers me. I'm trying to get used to manipulate the object while touching the screen -- it's always been a 'sacred place' to me, something I shouldn't touch... Well, I have to, here.
Also, I hate the Back/Menu buttons because it's very easy to hit them by mistake. Thankfully, once the phone is rooted, you can edit the build.prop and Generic.kl files to disable these keys and instead show the navbar on the screen. Yeah, I know, it makes for a smaller screen, but whatever... All I care about is the width, not the height. I wouldn't even bother if the screen was square or something...
Another phone that has eluded me for a while is Acer's CloudMobile. It's pretty close to the S3's specs, only it's a 4.3'' HD screen (instead of 4.8'') and is 5mm narrower. The perfect combination I guess, but then again, losing half an inch in screen size also bothers me... Once you're used to the super big screen, I guess it's a bit hard to come back.
So, it isn't the "perfect phone", but it's damn close to it.
I still have a day left to "evaluate" it. Then I can have it refunded, and buy something else, otherwise I'll just keep it.
Any suggestions...? (I suppose not, but I'd rather ask :P)
