I was close to getting an iPhone, but luckily my payment wasn't processed properly. I ended up going with the galaxy s2. I love it mainly because I already had an Android, so all my contacts and apps were stored with my Google account, so it was easy to get everything on my new phone. I didn't like how they said I'd have to buy an iTunes card before I could even use my iPhone or download even the free apps.
I was an android user, but only because Verizon didn't have the iPhone. I did switch to the Iphone once verizon got it. I'm a die hard apple fan, but I use a galaxy s3 now and I love it. It has its moments and quirks but its an awesome device. I love being able to customize without root or jailbreak. What ultimately sold me (because I was going to switch to an iPhone 5) was the support of simultaneous voice/ data over 3g and lte. That isn't capable on the Verizon iPhone 5. It comes in handy for road trips. I can have hotspot running and still take calls with the S3.
