How about:
have a "man sized" screen, larger than 4" (the Apple screen size advert clearly has a female hand, showing that the iPhone is "designed for females")
widgets on home screens
re-arranging the home screens as you want them
replacing the home screen with a different look & feel
replacing the messaging with a different look & feel
copy ANY video file to the phone & play it immediately

Yes, the 5S will ALWAYS run faster than any other phone on the market at the moment, because it's the only 64bit phone on the market, if you didn't know that then I suggest you leave sites like these until you get your knowledge level up!

Not to mention that the HTC One, Galaxy S4 & Xperia Z1 are all full HD screens, so their PPI is 33% higher than the iPhone, meaning a better viewing experience

As for the HTC One being "better than the S4", you don't take any photos then, because the One's 4MP camera is laughable quality - but if you want the best camera then you have to go Nokia Lumia

I almost laughed out loud at your comments, they were so ignorant!!!

all this silly "not selling well rubbish"... haha
the Galaxy S4 (not even including the mini or the active versions) sold 23 million units to the end of June... 7 million in july and 5 million in august
So there are already around 35 million sold in less than 5 months!! add in September and it will be around 40 million total sales of just the normal S4! the Galaxy S3 has managed about 60m lifetime sales so far. and the Galaxy S2 around 40m lifetime sales. you don't factor in the S4 mini sales.. but you sure can factor in Galaxy S4 active into total S4 sales since it basically IS a Galaxy S4 just with added waterproofing etc ... so it's probably about 45million+ sales so far in about 6 months. hardly not doing well is it?!

I'll take my S3 over the S4 any day. Specs wise on paper, the S4 is better, but my friend has the S4 and has a lot more lag than I ever do on my S3. also, according to Cnet drop tests, the S3 is a lot more sturdy than the S4. I think Samsung rushed the S4 out a little quick and didn't optimize the software and hardware like they did with the S3.

No forced closes, no lag, no app not responding, no malwares. Just straightforward fast, fluid and top notch performance. Aside from the petty extra features on Android that I hardly even use, there is nothing that Android can do that the iPhone 5S can't.

I would think that the recent news on SAMSUNG bringing in regional locks is going to impact heavily on their sales as well.

Far too many people want to be able to use their phones when they travel

If they go down that road, I for one will stop buying their products. I purchase their products legitimately and their statement saying that it would unlock if activated 1st in the country of purchase has already proven to be false.

very disappointed SAMSUNG...come to your senses or your sales will nosedive even further.....

The galaxy s4 can nose dive all it wants but its still a v.good phone. Yeah the htc one might look better but looks isn't everything.

The s4 has a better battery life and the addition of an m.card slot is sweet.

And pls dont compare the note 3 with the iPhone 5s, they are two different phones completely for two different people. The 5s will sell more cos of its compact design although I can't still understand watsup with the high price of a 4inch phone.
