Question

Comparison of two Samsung phones

Hi,

I read a lot of reviews of the Samsung Galaxy s3 and people seem to love it or loved it when it came out. I was wondering what your opinion is on Ice Cream Sandwich vs Jelly Bean? I saw a youtube video where a guy compared them. It seemed like he started out saying the Jelly Bean was so great but in a few examples of speed of each the Ice Cream Sandwich was faster. I really want a phone that takes great clear pics and videos. My phone takes horrible pics and is too slow so I miss a lot of shots. I love texting and I go to websites quite often. As far as all of the special features, I'm not sure if I would use them. Any advice you can give would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!!!

Answer
I may be the wrong person to ask.

There are long discussions about the merits of Android OS versions. Frankly I think if it works I can use it.

Here's a shot with my 99 buck (at the time) Blu phone. I took a picture with the Blu of the box to show off its colors.


So let's hear what phone you are looking at http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_i9300_galaxy_s_iii-4238.php is now over 5 years old so I would be guessing at how good that would be at 5 years old. The phone would be tired and possibly aged and not working that well.

Samsung Galaxy s3

Jelly Bean is not a major update compared to ICS, as Google worked on three main components: speed and overall performance (Project Butter), “delightful improvements” for some of the most important Android apps and overall experience, and, last but not least, a complete Google Search app overhaul.

That's one old phone.
