Well you're not very pleasant this am. What about those of us with wives and kids. What about if something happened. I hunt by myself sometimes because I don't have any real friends just you buttholes on the interwebs. I'd really not like to die in the marsh because my phone was in the truck :hammer:
I hope someday someone remembers this old dog with kindness and gives me to a puppy.

They had a Galaxy S3 at wal mart for. 97 cents. The lady at Verizon said its basically the same as the S4 with just a little slower processor and 8mp camera vs a 13mp camera on the S4. The S4 is 138 bucks so for that difference I may go with the S3. I just don't know.

I dont like the new Droids, the Windows phones confuse me, not a Apple fan. I just don't f-ing know!


I have an s3, wife has the s4. It's noticeably faster as far as lag, screen swiping etc. It wasn't noticeable on my phone until I got to playing with them back to back.

That being said, is it worth $100 some bucks? I don't know it depends how into phones you are. You might as well chalk up buying a waterproof case while you're at it, so figure that around $50 I think. I don't have one on mine, but it's at the point to where if I drown this one again, it's gonna get upgraded.

And not that it's any sort of quality assurance, but I dropped mine in Lake Erie duck hunting last winter off a break wall. Found it, hunted the rest of the morning with it. Did the rice thing overnight and it's worked flawlessly since.


Oh ya one last thing...wasn't there some software update on iPhones recently? I thought I read about 5000 posts about people crying about it. Maybe a figment of my imagination :)


So feature wise they are basically the same?

Casio gz'one commando! It's what I've had for three years now and love it. Waterproof without a bulky case, scratch proof, good camera, awesome gps, runs all the apps you want. Highly recommend it

I second that! Upgraded to the new 4G commando and it's ten times better.

Ya S4 has a little better camera, and some other little features that s3 doesn't. Nothing too ground breaking though
