Should I get a Galaxy S4 or IPhone 5?

[ Edited ]
6 replies 100 views Edited May 11, 2013

I'm looking to seriously part with my dinky little flip phone. I'm looking at getting either a Samsung Galaxy S4 or the IPhone 5. I have plenty of technology experience and I've demo'd both the phones (more the Galaxy) and I'm trying to make an informed decision.


(NOTE: This would be my first Apple product.)

 

With the Galaxy, I'm "tied into" having a Google ID. With the IPhone, I'm tied into ITunes, making it slightly more of a chore loading ringtones onto the phone.

 

Can anyone help guide me to a decision and some pros/cons between the two? Any info would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Get the Galaxy S4. In my opinion, it has better apps and a better selection of games. Also, I'd rather be tied to a Google ID than iTunes =)

get the Galaxy.

with an Adroid phone you can pretty much do anything once you root it. and since your tech savy, doing so wont be an issue for you.

Just recently swapped put my iPhone for a SGS4, don't get me wrong I love my iPad & so does my wife her iPad Mini, she has an iPhone too, but I am loving me some Android right now, in my eyes Samsung can't do much wrong these days.

I've had many Androids in the past, on different carries. They always froze, rebooted randomly, apps always foreclosed. When I went to the iPhone I never got those problems again.

 

You're going to get a better, sleeker and cleaner OS from Apple.
