Good choice. I had all of the iphones. Most were on jailbreak. Yet not much change in the design etc.. Was time to switched to s4 or htc one. Couldnt be happier with the HTC. Of course mine already overclocked and on a custom rom. Iphone needed JB the Android doesnt but i did it anyway

Apple really have to come up with something good for me to go back... Larger screen is one of the needs..

I can't wait to see what already available feature they bill as revolutionary.

Should be interesting regardless. I still have an Iphone4 as I have continued to wait for a decent size screen. Seeing as the screen won't be changing sizes it seems I'll finally be purchasing an S4 instead.

The iPhone 5 screen size is fine. Why do you want anything bigger? It's kind of getting ridiculous after that. S4 is really pushing it size wise.

This is what I'm thinking. My phone used to be fast but with all these new updates and operating systems.. it's definitely slower.

My battery is original too and that barely lasts me a day anymore with barely using it. I barely used it today and I'm at 35%
You don't lose the unlimited data. At least I didn't when I upgraded to my 4S. If they don't grandfather me in, I'm gone.

That's absurd for a phone. How can you even put that in your pocket comfortably?

I personally disagree that the iphone5 screen is "fine". My wife has the 5 and I don't believe in today's age it's a selling point for me, rather a deduction. I've played with the s4, and the HTCone both do not "feel" larger in my hands, but their screens are much more visible and just as high quality (better IMO) than the 5. I do everything on my phone. Internet, pay bills, e46, watch YouTube, watch theworstdrug, the screen is a significant selling point now a days.

When they develop an interface that can control and charge the S4 like I can with my iPhone, I'll give them a serious look. I have a USA spec in the 330 and. Dice in my S4 Audi. It really is convenient, especially in the BMW as I also have text through the head unit. Audio cuts out for incoming call, resumes on hang up.

And it's not the size of a subcompact car like the Galaxy is.

No, it's not. It's not that hard. I can't stand using my girls i5, the screen really is abysmal.

Not if you wear cargo pants or carry a backpack.

I don't know, I like the screen size of the 5.

My 4 fits perfectly in my pocket and isn't the size of a tablet like other phones. At the end of the day, it's a phone. If I want to watch videos, go online, pay bills, etc etc.. then I'll just use my computer or iPad.

Kinda thinking about the 5C as an update. Still on the iPhone 4, but don't want to pay $200 per phone, and the monthly contract. My only issue is that I'll have to give up my Unlimited data, and that'll suck.
