    I agree with everything you said. The other thing I hated about android was the battery life. My iPhones have always gotten me through the day without a charger. I hear that new androids have much better battery life as well.

    I can disagree on that one.

    I have 3 S4. I looked at the S5 as possible upgrades. After playing with it, I decided to stay with the S4 for now. There just wasn't enough to warrant the cost to upgrade. The S4 is still rocking.

    If the S5 is anything close to my IPhone 5 I'll be happy. I get between 4-6 hours of usage time on this thing. It is taking SUPER long to get this thing in the mail though lol.

    It must last more than 6 hours. I'd be very surprised if it didn't. I'm not expecting 6 hours of screen on time if that's what you're referring to. 4 hours of screen on time would make me a happy person. If the S5 doesn't make it 6 hours on a full charge then it will be getting traded on Craig's list for an iPhone rather quickly lol.

    I believe it depends on what apps and services you have running and what modle moto your referring to. I go from early morning until late at night when I go to bed I am finally down to 45 percent or so. My moto I had to pkug in by lunch time.

    Welcome to the forum HK! :)
    Which device are you going with?
    btw, I had the original Casio GzOne when it first came out years ago. Extremely study flip phone that stood up to everything I threw at it. :thumbup:
    Good luck with your new device!

    How often do galaxy phones come out? Is it once a year, or do they do two like apple? I ask because I'm not due to upgrade until June 30th and kit kat has made my HD maxx a bit more livable. And I'm not sure what to make of all the prime rumors.

    I recently flew from Los Angeles to Philadelphia. I played on my phone the entire time while listening to music by Bluetooth. As we landed, I still had 50% battery left. Three people around me turned their iPhones on. I guess they were afraid of their batteries draining over a 5 hour flight.

    I'm quite happy with it. If S5 is similar or better, I'd be a happy camper.
