i used to own a Samsung GS3 and switched to an iPhone 5 last January...so far i'm very disappointed with my switch...battery doesn't last a day with 3G data on, no apps running in the background & still with 10.6GB available on my 64GB memory...unlike with my GS3, that last a day & has a removable/changeable battery...my iPhone is getting very boring despite all the apps i have as it cannot be customized compared to my GS3...Apple better come up with lots of exciting & useful features on iOS7 or else i'm switching back to Samsung for Note3...
I want the Xperia Z instead of the iPhone 5 however apparently the Xperia Z has WiFi issues according to some users and apparently there is also a overheating solution. And some say it is hard to hold e.g uncomfortable in your hand. Is all this true, and is it a problem for you guys out there?

You don't have enough space for videos and MP3s because you cannot expand that tiny 16GB with SD card.
I bet it will also consumes the battery faster when you run all those apps in the background at the same time.
What is the use of a high specification phone when you always have to pay for a good collection of quality apps. There are free iOS apps but mostly trash if not trial version.
NFC is the latest way to share files even wothout Wi-Fi connection.

Mobile life is revolving around quality applications, how long can you use it and how long it last on standby.
What is the use of a high spec'd phone when it does not have a good collection of quality apps? and dies faster even with a massive battery?
Not legacy features.. unless you want to share files with cavemen using bluetooth file transfer. There are easier way to share, like Bump apps. Or using wifi hotspot, tons faster and more reliable then BT.
got it last week. its a beast brotha. changed it from xperia z cuz i had dead pixels on it shitty droid

I don't like to own that plastic crap.If the heating issues has been solved ages back why still people troll for heating issue in S4 read opinion.
Memory card :Only limited apps can be moved to SDcard.Man just 8gb is users available out of 16gb hahaha.were as on iphone you can install as many apps and media file in single storage.
You guys talk about widgets and then report for hang and lags.worst battery standby even if phone is not used the battery drains because of these widgets.
Bluetooth enough of A2DP(songs and calls)24/7 we are not going to transfer files.Think about the daily usage?
From apple so far six mobile model has been released so 4 inch is not bad were as samsung release its model like piglets so definitely they have to increase the screen size.

theva, 05 Aug 2013iphone 5 better or s4?? help me out guys,recently i'm using s3..S4.bet you already have an idea on ur s3. S4 is better
Android is JUNK and highly unoptimized.
Android users are already unsure about S4 pro running 1080p (a awesome quad core) (Xperia Z / Tablet)
They need s600 / s800 before they can be secure. Plain specs followers.
iPad 3 only have dual core.. and it can support greater then 1080p screen!! and its smooth and fast.
This prove that iOS is very optimized and no need for those high end chip/battery to be usable.
Buy a recent iPhone, and you can be sure you get good performance for at least 2 years and OS update for 3 years.

Hey friends........Let me give a true idea to you....
IPhone 5 is not a good option according to me.It has good build quality but has low specs and high price.I took iPhone 5 in my hand and I checked it.To be honest, it is not worth it....If it was for 400 USD without contact, it would be great but it is a waste of money at this price...
Better go for something else.Please note that it is not worth it.....
this phone is very suck......bec.
1gib ram not 2gb
dual core not quad
pixel 326 not 401
and really hate........
The battery is 1400mah? its Suck
high PRIZE? LOW spec!!!!!!!!!
... WASTE YOUR MONEY...
