I think there are other much more important features than screen size. Phones aren't just about screen size.

Well I doubt it was apple CFO who cried that "Q2 results will be bad". Lol
Switched to a free iPhone 4s 8gb. Had enough of big screen phones. What a relief to have a small phone again...

I went from Iphone 5 to Nexus 4 and then back to Iphone 5S. My friend went from Iphone 4 to Galaxy S4 and waiting IMPATIENTLY for the next iphone. He asked me constantly if anyone is willing to trade S4 for Iphone 5 lol

AnonD-255654, 02 Jul 2014the only thing they will regret when they pick HTC is owning a high-end featureless smartphonefeatureless?
Heart monitor, which can be known by any U$ 5O Android?
Fingerprint sensor, which was copied by iPhone and HTC One Max?
O.2" larger screen?
WOW, I MUST BUY A SAMSUNG GALAXY S5 FOR THAT!
Nah, I prefer my BlinkFeed, awesome BOOMSound to play games with, having the most fluid Android, and despite the camera is not that good, its software options makes it so much better, like 36Ox36O panorama, change the angle of the photo, the Zoe feature integrated with the Gallery, if you use custom ROM, it gets even better with a lot of features, including Beats Audio and ClariFi
And after all that, If I wouldn't like to have a horrible plastic phone, I would buy OnePlus or even HTC One E8. Better than S5, and SO MUCH cheaper!

I've been using a Galaxy S4 and satisfactory level wise, not good. My brother has an iPhone 5 and I think it's the kind of phone for me. iPhone 6 here I come :)
Lee, 02 Jul 2014its not Android that they are switching to, they are Switching to the Big screen. Definitely n... moreAndroid (in my opinion) is far more user friendly than iOS and im sure many more agree. Im on my second android device (HTC One M7 replaced my S3) and i have yet to experience this "lag" which apparently android is laced with. People aren't changing to a bigger screen they're changing to android for the user friendly experience as iOS is just too restrictive.
ALGlb, 02 Jul 2014Happened to meYes, three of my friends have done the same.
One had an S4 mini and hated it, he's now got an iPhone 5C and is very happy. Another is currently on an S4 and can't wait to switch back to an iPhone.
I've got other friends who love their S4 and S5, and that's fine. They are techy enough to put up with its downfalls and enjoy the "freedom" that Android brings, which is fair enough.
But the bottom line is what is easiest to use for the daily tasks at hand, and iPhone does a pretty fine job at that.
django, 02 Jul 2014yep .. apple is losing customers and money while samsung/android is gaining a lot..
oh wait... moreQuality over quantity. Many people who have switched from Apple to Samsung/Android, in my experience, have regretted the move and are now switching back to iPhone.
It's a matter of preference, but bigger specs don't always mean higher satisfaction.
Apple is not flawless, but its customer satisfaction is far superior.
Pity those that pick S5.. as their first android device.
They will curse android for lagging and buggy touchwiz. If they start with HTC they will have no such issues.
SoulJah, 02 Jul 2014Good morning Apple users, you finally discovered that Android phones (I mean top models) are m... moreYeah right.. HTC best. Your Samsung crap is below iPhones due to touchwiz lag.
Most people who remember lag also remember samsung. Give all android users bad name.

1. Took the waterproof from sony
2. Took the fingerprint from apple
3. Took the screen from previous S4
4. Took the color from apple

Most useless outdated features on a phone Yes. Most advance most recent? a BIG NO.
Most advance is HTC M8
