I just pulled the trigger on an S3 preorder. I was at Verizon this weekend with my gf because she had to replace her ancient first gen Droid, which finally kicked. Since I had done due diligence with the help of this thread's intel, I decided (Apple resistance in court or not) to get 'er done.
So thanks to everyone here for contributing and linking to information.
I've had the original Incredible for two years, and after a factory reset a few months ago haven't had much issues with it. I'm not a smartphone power user, so that's never the tiebreak or dealbreak in my selecting phones. Much of the icing on the S3 cake I probably won't even use that much (voice commands, fist bump data sharing, etc). As long as it doesn't embarrass itself through the life of my next two-year contract, or doesn't stop being supported by the latest OS after the first year, I'm happy.
My two years of learning Android UI started with an explosion of app-adding and heavy use, then I got minimalist, which directly tied into my getting an iPad for Christmas. So I've really whittled down, which aligned perfectly with my upgrade credit, Verizon's unlimited data policy "deadline," and this markedly pimped out phone.
