Default Re: Galaxy 5s or wait for iPhone 6

The Galaxy S5 and HTC One M8 are much more powerful phones than the iPhone 5S and its predecessors. Better camera too. But most people don't need the power. Go into a store and play with both phones. See which one fits your eye better. They all basically do the same things. The iPhone does restrict you to proprietary files and software in most instances.

Also, no cloud service is perfect. iCloud will randomly erase everything, Google will stop syncing your pictures without warning, Verizon's cloud service will sometimes not work properly.

To someone who asked earlier, back up your videos and pictures. Verizon probably won't transfer them to the new phone. Your best bet is to put them on Google Drive, Dropbox, Verizon Cloud, or any of the myriad cloud services out there. Better yet, save them to multiple cloud services and also onto your PC.

You might want a bigger battery or you might be going on a trip (camping, hunting etc...) where you want to bring an extra charged battery to swap out so you can use the phone all the time without worrying about draining your battery. Typically, you don't need an extra battery, but when you do, it's very handy. I would never buy a phone without a removable battery unless every manufacturer eventually goes that way.

Default Re: Galaxy 5s or wait for iPhone 6

I wish I was patient and waited for the S5 but I got an iPhone 5s back in February because I was ready to stop paying Sprint money for crap service (my contract had ended in December 2013). Signed with Verizon got $200 for my iPhone 4s which I paid $200 for in December '11 then Verizon gave me $100 because I signed up in February 2014. ANYWAYS... yeah..... Galaxy is my next phone so I guess that'll be in the S7 in 2016.

Default Re: Galaxy 5s or wait for iPhone 6

why do people continue to ask the stupid question. the iphone is the most outdated piece of crap out there. nothing about that operating system changes nor does the phone itself. small battery fragile glass screen and back. limited accessability. you restrict your self the day you buy that phone. Get the GS5 or the Note 3. just stop even contemplating the Iphone please i beg you.

Default Re: Galaxy 5s or wait for iPhone 6

When is the S6 coming out? Don't they usually like to launch the phone in August or September to coordinate with schools starting? I heard the S6 is going to have a 16 core processor and a 21 MP camera as well as have cat 6 capabilities.

I'm eligible to upgrade from the S3 right now, so I was wondering should I go ahead and do the S5 or wait a few more months and get the S6 (if it is released in August/September.) I've also seen that it won't be out until the 2nd half of 2015, so if that's the case I'll get the S5 now.

As far as the whole Samsung/iPhone thing, I prefer the Samsung not only against the iPhones, but against any model. I had the HTC when it first came out as a smart phone, and the Samsung is far more durable and functionally better.

I know. It's really amazing about the camera function of these models too. The S3 has an 8MP camera, the S5 doubles that at 16MP. This S6 is supposed to have the capability to capture 4K video recording, so I was wondering if they are actually going to make it a 4K display as well.

Depends on if you want Android or Tizen - http://abcnews.go.com/Technology/wir...ne-3q-23953035. Samsung has already announced they want to move away from Android which will be very interesting and if it is totally or just a partial move. They want to be able to control their OS instead of Google.

I think it's a little thicker and heavier than the regular S5, but considering you don't need a bulky case that will all even out. definitely feels nice and sturdy, supposed to be made to mil spec so it should hold up. Guess the only drawback from the S5 is that you don't get the finger print scanner.

I heard the finger print scanner wasn't that great anyway.

What did you have before? I wonder what's the jump between it and the s4 active

I had an iphone 4 before. From what I read the S4 active had a worse camera and display than the S4, but the S5 Active has the same diplay and camera as the S5, so it seems to me that going from the S4 Active to the S5 Active is almost like going up 1 and 1/2 generations.

Default Re: Galaxy 5s or wait for iPhone 6

I just got the Galaxy S5 a few weeks ago, I had the GS3 before that. The S5 has MUCH better battery life, the camera is night and day better and the video stabilzation feature is really on point. The speed when using the internet or 4G network is really good.

There's a really intersting Ultra Battery Saving mode, turns the screen to a b/w, limits activity and performance, but I could run that phone for a week on 1 charge. Theres another battery saving mode that keeps a lot of the functionality and screen/colors, but limits performance and shuts down apps you're not using, this also extends the charge life with a click of the button.

The product is a lot faster when i'm streaming video over the network. Also, I like the new call log features that I didn't have on the S3.
