Its all personal preference at the end of the day, i love the fingerprint scan feature, and a move to 64 bit processing cant be a bad thing at all. Like the way it has 2 processors, 1 for handling small background tasks so the a7 chip is always free to do what it needs. 120fps on the video is insanity too. just what i need to record sports shots whenever i need it.

Because what about iphone 5c. it is plastic or not? we need super fast hardware and soft ware. not brand name.
Carlos, 15 Sep 2013I agree. What really matters is how the phone performs for what you're using it. Android h... moreDont forget the cores, and the ultra hungry batteries that cant be charge with USB ports.. Slippery smooth..
AnonD-2179, 15 Sep 2013I do not agree with you.. TO tell that specs are not important is a big joke. Specs tells you ... moreSpecs DO MATTER, if you are talking about a same environment, lets say android, one is using a dual core processor, the other one an octa core, the clear winner is the octa. But if a dual core running an optimized environment, Im sure it can even beat 2xtrue octa core with crappy environment :p
AnonD-186890, 15 Sep 2013It's debatable whether the s4 is the best phone in the world, especially with the new release ... moreAll the 5S is an iPhone 5 with more speed, a slightly better camera and a completely pointless fingerprint scanner... So you don't need to hold it to know exactly what you getting, But the S4 has a huge and truly amazing screen, plenty power and pretty much every feature you can currently fit into a phone.
So yeah the iPhone is very good at doing certain things but the S4 is very good at everything and is almost as smooth as the iPhone is.
Carlos, 15 Sep 2013Actually even in the USA; Apple grew a LOT; and even then they have a 41% market vs 51% for An... moreWhat you fail to understand is that Apple aim their products at consumers who want premium products. Automobile manufacturers like Mercedes, Rolls Royce and Range Rover offer optional extras which enable you to easily connect your Apple device, like having iPads in the rear head rests. Samsung as well as the majority of other Android operating devices are not premium high end products so therefore you will not find them as available options in premium high end cars. The Samsung range is a cheaper alternative aimed at those who cannot afford the Apple range of products.
I'm actually using a Samsung Galaxy s3 now. Its a good phone but lacks simplicity and has already crashed on my and i've only been using it 3 days.
AnonD-116479, 15 Sep 2013Only USA market that Apple owns a considerable amount of market share. Their global market is ... moreWell maybe you haven't realized it yet but the U.S is the worlds largest market when it comes to consumers. The U.S also happens to have the worlds largest stock exchange per total market capitalization of its listed companies (New York Stock Exchange) Now that Apple have further expanded into Japan and China, things will inevitably grow.
Anonymous, 15 Sep 2013iPhone switch to 64 bit won't be easily emulated by Android, which will increase Apple's lead.... moreBy the way apple is making fun of you since 64 bit CPU needs a RAM of 3GB or more to function this feature will have no meaning with 1 GB RAM
apple do same things in upcoming i phones. Nothing difference between iphone 5 and 5s just a touch id no change in camera or screen size or no change in ram also so u r company wil be wind up.apple has gone with steve.

Galaxy S4 is the... moreIt's debatable whether the s4 is the best phone in the world, especially with the new release of the iphone 5s. Making a bold statement like that without any justification is a bit vague.
AnonD-116479, 15 Sep 2013Only USA market that Apple owns a considerable amount of market share. Their global market is ... moreAfter 5 year anybody don't know about apple position but really 5 year ago I don't Know have any iOS phone. I have used iPhone 4 and 5 and now waiting for iPad 5. After I checked S4 I believe that iOS is best mobile OS. and now it is No 1 company in the world and No 1 brand. I would like to say quality is better than quantity for user
AnonD-116479, 15 Sep 2013Only USA market that Apple owns a considerable amount of market share. Their global market is ... moreFrom Day 1, Apple has never been about market share, and even mentioned that they target the high end section of mobile phone market, yet Android constantly uses this as a benchmark.
Imagine if analysts kept comparing market share between Toyota and Lamborghini (not saying that Apple is Lamborghini), and kept concluding that Lambo would die due tu small marketshare, surely that analyst would be laughed at. Why? Cos Lambo has huge profit margins.
I also tell truth, and unbiased, but with one addition, I know how to use my brain.

Their global market is only 13% while Android phones own nearly 70% of market share. Also ios market share is gradually declining. Within another 5 years iPhones will nowhere exist in this earth.
Well , honesty after using sony xperia z ultra about a month, all i can say is.. it was fast! sony ui is smooth as butter and snapdragon 800 relly help battery improvement. Adreno 330 is powerfull enough to run heavy games with no sweat. iphone 5s cant get near closer to it .
