Question

Galaxy s4 or iPhone5

by amcdan2000_1 / May 8, 2013 12:27 PM PDT

Galaxy phone got stolen today and will have to replace it. I had an iPhone before Galaxy and really liked the freedom of the Galaxy over iPhone but the discussions of the android market going down the tubes is worrying me. Any suggestions?

Then make the move. I don't use the market so much so maybe I'm not seeing the issue. Can you share what the issues are?

Although Apple has me currently satisfied, I could definitely see a reason to upgrade to the S4 Wink

Samsung S4 is better than Apple I5

I vote for S4 because Smasung had done really an excellent job with its S4 smart phones. They have pretty awesome, creative and new options which Apple doesn't have.

Samsung S4 is great.....

Unless Apple's next phone hits it out of the park, Samsung will continue to be the lead innovator in smart phones. S4 is currently the heavy weight champ.

With Windows Phone 8 and Blackberry going up (in %), at least one other OS must go down (in %). So it's either Android or iOS, or both. That's not incredible, that's math.

HTC One?

You may have already bought a new phone and I know your dilemma was between a S4 or iPhone but have you considered the HTC One? Everything I have read about the phone makes me believe that it is probably the best android phone on the market at the moment. I'm on Verizon and need to wait until the end of summer to get it. Cry

Like I mentioned, I work with a company that specializes in making custom cases, so I get to try out new phones and play... haha.
But the Sony Xperia is surprisingly great! Do you own it?

But I'm sold on the iPhone 5 so I say go for it! Happy Working for a company that makes custom cases, I come in contact with all the new phones and hear customer reactions to these phones. Either way, you're gonna have a great phone!
