How's 8.0.2 working for you guys? Is it stable for 5s? I regretted upgrading my 4s to ios 7 immediately back then. Don't want to make that mistake again.
AnonD-127775, 29 Sep 2014What do you guys do with your phones?? 0_o
Iphone 6 is junk. All iphones released till the 5s... moreLike I said, bugs. Android is still too buggy to run daily. mm-qcamera-daemon bug causes the processor to run at 100% which causes overheating and battery drain. This was on the latest version of KK.
G2 my brother had a problem where mobile data suddernly dropped off. All without warning. Also had problems with the screen not turning off after a viber notification was received. The UI was also very laggy at times at the GPS location was inaccurate and took too long to initialize, even outside. He needs bbm/viber to talk to his contacts on 3 continents.
My brother works in a financial institution and requires reliable communication. Not flaky android garbage. he literally threw his G2 in the drawer and never looked at it again. Now he has a Blackberry Q10 and iphone 6. BBM has never failed him once.
Me, I will be buying the passport to go with my 5S. the 5S has never once felt slow, charge is not an issue as I have a battery pack and chargers in my car and work. All the communications applications are high quality and work flawlessly. Especially BBM which is my primary messaging app.
These are the devices for serious users. If someone just wants to play games and watch cat videos on youtube, they can get an android.

I have no reason to trust any of the Android manufacturers unless they can prove otherwise that the bugs in the OS have been resolved.
Until then, Android will not get a cent of me or my families money. Plus now that iphones have larger screens, there isnt a single reason to buy Android.

There are many phones better than iphone 5s (for the price range) and better than the galaxy s5 as well....
Dont get me wrong. I would love to have an iphone but right now there is no ground breaking reason to make me switch back to IOS (i had an iphone 4 which i sold back to buy a galaxy s2 in 2011)
How can i use tv out function, ia there any mhl option can anyone tell me please??????

And it developed the mm-qcamera-daemom bug. The only known solution is a full factory reset. I had to sell it for 350 usd.
Do you think I care about Android's freedom after getting burned like that? Do you think I will spend a single cent on an Android device ever again? Better question, do you think I will even open an Android phone review or news article ever again?
AnonD-127775, 28 Sep 2014I personally think i'll have problems if i switch from android to IOS. Still in a double mind.... moreAbove all latest is Note 4,but only thing in India we will not be receiving Snapdragon 805, M8 is good but I have a bad experience with HTC, battery backups are very bad. Note 4 will be a good option as for a heavy Android user relying only on IPhone will be very hard. Or if you can wait for Nexus 6. Price wise it will be competitive with a Snapdragon 805, and Note 4 will be best as you are an Android user before.

Still in a double mind. I have a nexus 5 and a blackberry z10 (but both the phones are having problems so i have sent it for repairs and i havent received any of the devices yet). Thats why i want to buy a new phone and sell my nexus and blackberry once i get them back....
And my options are htc one m8, note 4, galaxy alpha and iphone 5s. Hopefully i'll get a new phone by diwali :/

Heck you cant even install launchers if at all you get bored with the user interface.
You are stuck with the same boring stuff with almost no customization (except the freedom to change the wallpapers and arrange the apps).
If apple would've considered the pricing of this phone and kept it at a lower cost, then iphones would literally beat the crap out of all other phones....

If youre thinking about buying this phone, DO IT!
This phone is absolutely amazing. Its size is absolutely perfect, easy to handle, type and use. The battery life will get you through the day no problem. The screen is SUPER BRIGHT. Seriously, even in direct sunlight, its easy to read.
iOS is butter smooth. Coming from Android, it was a shock to me. It absolutely flies and there is ZERO lag or waiting anywhere. Plus its very intuitive. Everything is where it should be and its very easy to get used to. Once you use this phone, you realize why iOS is so highly regarded.
I sold my galaxy S5 to move onto the 5S and im in love.
Apple please fix your ios 8.0.2 version!!!the camera focus on 7.1.2 is much faster thAn the latest its not zero shutter lag now. It loads for about 1 sec. !!fix it
I bought iphone 5s 6 months back to my acknowledgement apple's ios is considered to be the best os, it is simple and fluid but only in ios 7.Worst experience so far upgrading to ios 8, it lags,it heats like hell,call drops and call failed error,multitask total nuisance it shows whatsapp icon in the bottom but screen is blank at centre while doing multi tasking.i gave it to repair to authorized service centre they just re-installed ios 8 and returned it to me saying it wont hsppen ever again. But problems are still there is this the kind of service apple gives to its customers????? i moved from android cause of apple and ios stability, performance and service but according to me android is better than ios it offers much features than ios and the one who says that apple's ios is reliable according to me my experience there is no difference between touchwiz and ios they both lag.Sorry apple returning to android.
