I'm an iPhone man myself. Currently on the 5c 16. Never used a Galaxy because Apples are so user friendly I've never thought about switching to anything else.

If it's so user friendly, why don't you change the battery real quick for me? Better yet, do some swype texting since you have big fingers? Why are your older devices not compatible with the new updates?

User friendly is a cool catch phrase but IMO they're really not any more user friendly than other devices (or less).

Never needed to change a battery and my old 4s updated 3 days before I sold it 20 minutes after putting it on CL.

I got the g5 last week and have enjoyed it sense. My girlfriend, who had previously only had iPhones, got it as well and likes it better than the previous apple offerings. She has had to get used to the ui, though. At any rate, it's up to you. Since the i6 isn't out yet, I couldn't say which one's better. Just speaking as a g5 owner:thumbsup:

I'm almost due for a phone upgrade and was thinking of making the switch over to the Galaxy. If you don't mind can you check back after you have had it a bit and do a little comparison of what you are liking about it over the iPhone and what you are not liking as much?

Galaxy all the way!! The IPHONE is not user friendly as some have said unfortunately. The Galaxy phone series are the best and this is coming from a 4s guy who just loves his phone so he doesn't want to upgrade. Plus it helps that you can download apps to play older gameboy/n64 games likes it's nothing. Gamer here as you can tell.

I don't play games on my phone and I came from the first generation Galaxy, which I'm sure the new ones are much better. It took me about 15 minutes to feel perfectly comfortable with my first iphone coming from the original Galaxy.

The Galaxy phones are a tablet that makes phone calls. It's insane

To be honest, if you want an Iphone 6, just go buy an Iphone 5, they're all the same anyways.

Im going to give you my best thoughts about it... I had a iPhone 4s and switched to a galaxy s4 on April 12.

iPhone Pros:
Simplicity
Glass/Aluminum Body
iCloud (I have an iPad and MacBook and miss iCloud for music purposes but its easy to work around)
iMessage

Cons:
Small Screen
You can't add extra storage or remove the battery


Galaxy Pros:
5 inch screen. I was afraid it was to big at first but it grows on you and looks beautiful. It fits in my pocket fine.
Customization. I love to be able to have widgets on my home screen to show the weeks weather, my daily calendar, and other random stuff.
Multitasking. You can have internet and messaging up at the same time or any other combination.

Galaxy Cons:
Plastic Body
Some dont like the big screen
No iMessage

Random Thoughts:
People always say that apple has a great app store and its so much better than the google play store.. I dont think either is better.

The plastic casing on the galaxy doesn't bother me because I put a obex waterproof case on it.

One thing to note... Not all people have this problem but some do when switching from iPhone to another phone thats not apple. Apple saves your number in their servers so when people send you messages from their iPhone it still sees your number in their servers so it tries to send an iMessage which a galaxy doesn't have. I had to call apple to get them to take my number out. It has solved the problem mostly but some people it still tries to send me an iMessage.

If you are doing it for screen size but really want apple I would wait just to see iPhone 6. Rumors have it that they will have two iPhones again this year one at 4 in. and one at 5.5 in. to compete with galaxy.

From my personal experience I am glad I switched to galaxy. If I didn't have this iMessage issue I would never have had the thought of switching back, but regardless I love my s4.

Change the battery? What is this 1995?

Older devices? What does that even mean?

If you want to wait until fall, then wait to see what the new device, 6 or whatever they call it, from Apple brings to the table. Their new phone will not be out until at least September. I wouldn't take any stock into any rumors of what the phone will or will not do.

If you are getting a phone now, just go to a store and play with what you are thinking about getting. I find the new galaxy phones way to big, but would have not realized that until picking them up. If you don't know what to get at all, I would also look at a Windows Phone. They have made great strides on their OS but some of the apps are still lacking. For me it doesn't work since they do not offer a couple of apps I really need, but it might be perfect for someone else. The Nokias are built great and take great pictures as well.

I was thinking the same thing. Why would you need to change the iphone battery? Just seems like some android fanboys trying to find another reason to crack on the iphone.
