Iphone 5 or galaxy s4?

I have the choice between each one. I currently use the iPhone 5. But I have a galaxy I got for 96 cents for the heck of it. Which one is better?

The Galaxy! But I'm an IPhone hater, so my opinion is bias. I think it's too small. (That's what she said!!!)

I played with them both together, for what I use the phones for the iPhone is hands down better. It takes better pictures (more "real" looking) the galaxy made my car look orange in pictures. And the galaxy is cool for people who like to customize. But it's to glitchy for me, it doesn't keep up with what I like to do, video editing, picture taking, and everything like that. I'm also a music major and apple has a ton of music apps I use. I'm sticking with the iPhone!

Never tried a galaxy but I have an iPhone 5. This is my first iPhone ever but personally I don't get the big deal. It just made it harder for me to download music illegally :-/

free music downloader app. Works great man. I use MP3skull website alot, but you can type any site in the search, and it downloads it straight to your phone, then you can pull it off the phone, straight to itunes.

On android yes! But it installs as a zip file so you have to use a unzip app and move it to your music! It should be the same for iphone unless you can play zip files..

Ahhhh. I gotcha! I ended up keeping my iPhone 5. The battery lasts for so long, and I'm a music major so the iPhone is better for me to use. And it helps because when I take pictures the colors then out more "real" if that makes sense

Any idea how it will be different, aside from the rumored curved glass that detects pressure?

I am done with apple. They stopped being innovative years ago. I have been an iPhone fan from the beginning and am currently sending this through an iPhone 4S, and still love my mac book air...;but I feel as though there are much bigger and better cell phone companies that have products that are now too tempting to resist...

i will say apple is kinda late on a lot of there tech, they normally get it from android. But their App Store is what sets them apart, which really is the only thing apple has over android

There is a reason every new phone or tablet is touted as the next iPhone or iPad "killer".

(Which none have done)

Apple products are ridiculously over engineered. They don't freeze, the survive drops that they shouldn't. They are just a solid, polished product that is easy to use.

For those saying apple is behind, don't forget they started both markets... Everyone else plagiarized blatantly. Apple doesn't rush... Calculating/thought out. The other companies can only compete by blindly throwing "innovation" without properly vetting or determining if it is a valuable/profitable addition.

Has jobs passing changed apple... Of course. To be expected. And eventually it may result in a company that produces generic crap like the rest of the market makes. But while their stock is still sky high and millions know the quality, they (me) will keep buying.

And if you prefer a "phablet"? Just know you look like an idiot holding a plate to your head to make a call... Just saying.

As I've gotten older, I appreciate quality. And no one can say a recent apple product is poorly designed or executed.

With all that said.. Get what makes YOU happy. Who GAF about anyone else's opinion. If you like the GSIII, get one.

P.s. I was a die hard Microsoft guy... Had 3 early windows mobile phones and have had android tablets before I converted.

Htc one over galaxy.

Or nexus 5? Is that out yet?

Get what makes you happy it's your phone just like it's your car.

Don't love life worrying about what others think. That's stressful and unfulfilling.
