Woolwell - I don't use Outlook now. Used to for Contacts as it has that nice little Credit Card view but never used it for email and now I don't use it at all. Google just works fine for me and I can access my Calendar, my Contacts and my mail wherever I am.

chub_tor - The problem lies with the sync of Outlook with Google Contacts and Google Calendar. I never found a way of satisfactorily achieving a sync of Google Contacts and Google Calendar sync was a bit hit and miss with two way ops. My problem lies with the fact that Outlook is my main email, calendar and contacts program and has been for many years. iCloud syncs far better than Samsung/Google.

The other problem I found with Kies that it wouldn't even let me view the phone's contacts and this was I suspect because I had imported Facebook contacts into the phone. Slow connection and sometimes no usb connection put me off Samsung.

Until you have used Apple iPhone and iPad and how they seamlessly integrate with even a Windows PC it is only then that you realise how far behind the competitors are. Yes the Samsung S3 is very good and has possibly more features than the iPhone5, is quite a bit cheaper and as a phone may be better, but it is the overall package that swayed me.

Having said that if you don't use Outlook then the Galaxy S3 may be the better choice.

As a dedicated Apple fan it would take a great deal to lure me away from the iPhone as it integrates seamlessly with my iPad, iMac and Apple TV.

That said the iPhone5 has been for me very underwhelming and the S3, which a number of colleagues have, seems to offer much more. Much I have read so far about the S4 seems gimmicky and with an ever bigger screen it gets closer to a phablet than a phone.

I would not currently change as Apple must to get back in the game and the iPhone 5s / iPhone 6, due in the late spring, will simply have to be very good to keep up and extremely good to overtake Samsung.

I voted for the Nexus 4, but in reality, I'd still use my slimline Nokia 700 for actual phoning!

Woolwell It's ok if you use Google mail contacts and Google calendar which is exactly what I do. I have never used Kies.

You can continue to use it if you already have it but you cannot download it. It is still around for business, paying customers. See Google Sync end of life

Woolwell, I still use Google Calendar Sync with Outlook all the time - what makes you think it was withdrawn?

Samsung may make some good phones but to link to the PC then you have to use Kies and that is poor. You can have endless problems syncing contacts and calendar with Outlook. It's ok if you use Google mail contacts and Google calendar but exchanging data between Outlook and Google can be awkward especially now Google Calendar Sync has been withdrawn. By comparison the iPhone works seamlessly with Outlook and has a great array of apps with little risk of virus or malware. It also seems better built. Phone reviews never compare ease of PC sync.
