Made the switch from the iphone5 to the blackberry q10. Having a spare batt on hand is clutch
I have bought an iPhone 5S, but I find ios7 drain battery rapidly. It's pretty not convenient because of its irremovable battery, especially when I go out. I recently bought a portable charger from Kinkoo: http://www.ikinkoo.com/shop/portable-charger/kinkoo-infinite-one-8000mah.html
I have found it to be great. With real 8,000mAh can charge iPhone 5S for 4 times, with juice still to spare. Works so good to keep my phone alive.
I'd go with the so called better Samsung gs4 if Samsung used a professional contact management system like apple does by working with MS Outlook instead of google contacts. Sow me one company in the world that uses google over outlook.

And who says bigger and bigger screens are "improvements?" At this rate we'll be walking around holding tablet sized phones to the sides of our heads! Think I am wrong? As Samsung phone screens get bigger, tablets get smaller (such as the iPad Mini and similar). At some point ergonomics become a severe limitation on phone size.
Of course they died, no Steve Jobs, no Apple, and thats it, Samsung is better anyway,HTC and Sony, Apple has just brand, design, and IOS, but, for our days, very poor functionality, so, if your love this bitten apple, buy it, because i dont see any reasons there.

Put a Galaxy S3 and a Galaxy S4 next to each other.
Then do the same with an iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s (as they came the day they were sold at first).
When the S4 came out, people were saying how hard it was to tell them apart. Then the S4 added a pile of gimmicks that people really don't use. If anything they improved the camera.
But then look at an iPhone 5 (ios 6) and an iPhone 5s (ios 7). Apple made significant changes to the entire OS and the way the user interacts with it. They've integrated fingerprint security and an M7 processor and 64bit capability which makes it even more future proof than the S4.
So yes, there are a LOT of things to be desired from iPhone but if you look at it objectively, Apple really has changed everything in 1 year.
Tom-Helge, 13 Sep 2013My Galaxy S4 had been running for 2 days and 10 hours yesterday and i still had 17% battery le... moreCalling major bullshit on that, S4 battery life is horrible. I had to charge mine minimum twice a day.
It appears that Samsung no longer manufactures the A-Series Chips for Apple!! TSMC is the new manufacturer of both A6 & A7!!!
bye bye Samscum!!
Samsung's flawed, dead-end Exynos 5 Octa
Not an 8 core chip as claimed!
Slower than both Snapdragon and A6!!!!
Samsung is using Snapdragon chip in their latest revision of the Galaxy S4. Would have used A6 if Apple let them! LOL!!!
What a failed company!!!

I see some people whatever Apple does they just keep post against it! I'm sure that Apple does a good improvements with iPhone 5s. Camera, Touch ID, new Processors "A7 & M7" and even a little improvement for the battery also a whole new UI and some good features with iOS7. Apple still a good choice and I can see how it will be nice with bigger screen, long live battery and upgraded design with iPhone 6. I'm still on Apple.

Sincerely speaking you have posted one of the best I have ever seen, a 3Amp battery should be the best then slightly thicker that the iPhone 5. I don't know when this mobile phone companies will begin to understand the fact that longer battery life is mandatory.

100-200 mAh more is a joke... Battery life is sacrified to all other parts of the specification nowadays. Iphone 5S should be 2-3 mm thicker (still would be comfortable) and have a 3000 mAh battery... which should last 2 days in a REAL LIFE scenario :)
Anonymous, 13 Sep 2013For iPhone, the battery usage is quite stable regardless how many apps you have. For Android, ... moreSorry but i disagree. Each app has a different level of consumption. Just take games for example. Different games consume battery juice differently. Some drain it fast and some not so fast.
