Upgrading from iphone 5 to samsung s4 or s5, bad or good idea?

(28 Posts)

Just that really! I feel like a change away from apple and really fancy a samsung now. Not sure whether to go for s4 or s5. Or would it be a big mistake? Anyone got any tips/advice/opinions? I'm so indecisive and would be glad of the input! wink

All my fb friends who have switched to S4 are deeply regretting move from iPhone because all have had problems with the screen cracking for no reason - make sure you get insurance for costly repairs and be prepared to lose your phone for a few days per year! One friend put on their status that it's a brilliant camera but a crap phone!

I've gone from the Note 1 to the S3. Personally I don't think the S4 was a big enough upgrade to justify the cost. It's essentially a slightly faster S3 with a few software tweaks that few will use.

The S5 looks much better as they've gone back to basics. Instead of cramming more software 'features' in it, they've concentrated on stuff that matters. So battery life, screen & waterproofing! OMG why has it taken them so long to do this. So many people each year accidentally spill tea on it or drop their phone down the toilet! Stuff like that won't matter anymore.

Once the price settles a bit, i might look into one myself.

Almost everyone I know who owns an iPhone has experienced a cracked screen at some point or another. This is a far less common problem with any top end Android manufactures.
