    Not to mention that if you have a Non-stock Android phone you'll have to wait months before you get the newest Android version.

    You don't have to provide that data if you don't want to.

    AP Review.

    The S4 is an excellent device from a hardware standpoint. Its 5-inch screen is larger than its predecessor, yet it's a tad lighter and smaller. The display is sharp, at 441 pixels per inch. Samsung packed the Android device with a slew of custom features, including new camera tools and the ability to perform tasks by waving a finger over a sensor. Many of the features, however, make the phone more complicated to use. In some cases, custom features work only some of the time. In other cases, you're confronted with too many ways to do similar things. The S4 might be for you if you don't mind spending time customizing it. Otherwise, you must bypass all the gimmicks to get to what otherwise is a good phone.

    I used to have BB but switched in late August to Galaxy S4 and love the phone. I think Apple is evil so I will not touch those phones.

    As an owner of several iPhone models, and a current owner of a Galaxy Note 2, I can tell you that I prefer the ladder.

    My boss just got the Note 3 with Gear. He's one of those "tech junkies" that has to have the latest and greatest...and then has no idea how to use it other than to have one before anyone else in the office.

    I see the Gear portion being a fad that will die out.

    This. I also have the HTC One and could not make one complaint about it. I use my phone for music a lot, and having Beats Audion and BoomSound front facing speakers is amazing.

    Also, just a general statement - most people I know who have IPhones act really snobby about it. Like that apple logo makes them a cooler person.

    Going back to IOS.

    Had the 3, 3G, and 4. Decided to try Android and got the Galaxy Nexus last time around.

    I liked Android, but too many little things that bothered me.

    - After all this time the UI is still too laggy for me. Apps sometimes take forever to load. Keyboard unresponsive. Apps force close.
    - Sub par apps. IOS apps are more fleshed out.
    - Battery life. Horrible. Carried 2 extra batteries everywhere I went.

    I have an iPhone 5 - I like it for what it is. Too small for me though.


    I have had Droid X, Droid Razr and now have Note 2. Never had any of the problems you mentioned.

    Razr and Note 2 battery lasts over a day with regular usage.

    Whats really funny about that is...


    There are "Have" and Have Not's" and the iPhone has been a "Have Not" for over 2 years. Behind in the most basic features that have been standard for android for years.

    Its actually funny because the commercials drive this point home! lol

    I had the same problem. You need to hold the button down at the bottom of the screen then clear all the programs then clear memory periodically otherwise the phone will get slow and/or freeze. I think I still like the iPhone better but because it syncs more easily with my iMac and Macair

    Honestly, at this point I'm leaning towards the iPhone 5S, but the Note 3 is still in contention.

    I really like having a bigger screen. I wanted a bigger screen - thus my move from an iPhone 4 to the Galaxy Nexus - so that watching movies and surfing the web would be nicer. But, I ended up hardly ever watching movies on my phone. Rather watch movies on the iPad if we were on travel or on the go. So, in the end, the bigger screen just meant a bigger phone. I plan on getting a retina iPad mini when it comes out so will use that as a travel device.

    The things that turn me off from the Note 3:

    - Stylus. Don't care for one so all the extra functionality would be wasted on me.
    - Samsung layer on top of Android. Android is already laggy as is (that's not debatable. It's been proven) so I don't want another layer on top of that. I rooted and rom'd my Nexus the day I got it so I know I can eventually do that. Don't want to mess with that stuff anymore.
