    I've owned tons of android phones and I always end up going back to an iphone. I'm hoping that this S5 keeps me from returning to Apple again. The thing I love about the iPhones are just how smooth everything operates whether it be a built in app or a downloaded app. The thing just never slows down. That's been a major issue I've had with androids. Hopefully all that has been worked out since my razr lol.

    My Motorola's seemed to get slower overtime but our galaxy S4's have been solid performers. My wife just got rid of her iPhone 5 to goto the S4. S5 should even better. She liked her old droidx better than her iPhone.

    We are Apple fans. We only use Apple computers at home. But,the iPhone and its IOS doesn't compare to android and Samsung. The build quality of the iPhone is great and the iPhone was the 1st smart phone as we know them today but they just aren't as intuitive or featured filled as most android phones.

    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.

    Yes, our Samsung S4's outperform our iphone 5 battery life.

    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.

    Based on s3 experience and play with s 4 their battery suck. Doesn't last longer then 6 hours . Your holding your breath if s5 last longer then 6 hours.

    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.
