And Then Everything Felt Right in the World....

In the days leading up to the arrival. Excitement stirred.

I tracked my package every hour along the two day delivery route. Growing more eager with every stop closer to home.

I opened the door before the Fed Ex guy even knocked.

Inside the boring brown box, was yet another box. This one was so beautiful I hardly wanted to disturb it.

But I just couldn't wait to get my hands on it. 

Behold my new most favorite thing in the universe. The Samsung Galaxy S III

Now, I could be a little over zealous, since I had to make a snap decision 2 years ago to get a really crappy android phone (LG Optimus...run away!) when I killed my beloved blackberry before my contract was up, by sticking it in my sports bra while I ran. (Not recommended....) 

But I don't think that's it. I think I made an informed decision that I am happy with. 

I did extensive research both with online user reviews, and consumer reports. I asked owners of the phone for their input as well.

I can finally attest to having the right phone making life easier. My connection at home sucked with my old phone, and it is such a dream on the new Samsung, that I rarely even fire up the laptop!  I can do everything on my phone, with a quickness!

I couldn't be happier! I think it's the most beautiful thing I own.

Nevermind, I think Mr. Magoo is the most beautiful thing I own...but then again, he owns me

Mr. Magoo would look beautiful with an old Kodak instamatic!

I'm looking at the Samsung for my next phone too. My coworker has one and loves it (yeah, and she's playing on it ALL THE TIME at work!). Anyway, I look forward to seeing how you like it.

it's amazing!

I'm loving it! no complaints. Some people didn't like the battery life. but you can buy a bigger battery. I'm use to being connected all day at work with my old phone. This one lasts me overnight while I sleep, and until I'm home from the gym and ready to plug in again i'm at 35%. it's good for me!! everything else is perfection!!

I've had this phone for quite a while now and it really is lovely. I had a HTC before but this one really is da bomb. I downloaded a lovely free app so I have the Star Trek intercom whistle as my notification sound and the on-screen noise as my ring tone!

If you find out what apps are still running in the background then force stop them and you'll get more battery life.
