    The Galaxy line is known for their longer battery life, I'd say S5.

    The S5 is impressive indeed but since my gf is getting it, I choose to get something different. However, I just dont like exterior at all. Nothing stands out about it. Love the features though.

    I think all smartphones have short battery life, I dont know. I had to get an external for my Xperia Z.

    The whole thing....its too uninspiring. The Iphone design is very unique. The Xperia also. Both made of high quality material. But when I hold the S4 in my hand, it feels and looks cheap, like an ordinary smartphone. Love the S5 leather backing though. I'll have to see it in person - I might get the S5 also, and if I really don't like it, I'll get rid of it, eh? It has the best display and features though, wish they paid more attention to the outside. The Z line is all glass, front and back, and waterproof, and the bezel are metal. It feels and looks high quality and has a good weight to it.

    Probably will get the S5 - to match my Samsung Smart TV, eff it bro.

    One thing I don't like about the Z is the edges. I like a rounder edge like the S5. I know it's minor, but still.

    The rounded edges is so girly though but to each his own. It is minor though.

    I do agree with you msred. I owned Samsung Galaxy before and first hand used, I will go with the Iphone too.
    Samsung does drain up battery fast because of all the extra stuff going on in there. There's also complains and report going around on it with Samsung user. I also stop using the Samsung and went back to the Iphone.

    For looks is concern, Iphone always looks classier in person. I saw the Samsung Galaxy s5 in the store a couple of days ago and it's nice and beautiful by itself. But if you put it next to the lastest Iphone, I will pick the Iphone. :)

    I am waiting for the next Iphone, and is planning to get that brand again. I was watching Grimm ( American TV series) yesterday and all the cast was using the Iphone so you're not alone.

    I never went to purchase it on the day I planned. Instead, I paid off my current phone and my gf's phone. Also, I canceled my service with tmobile. Doing all this so I can pay off my fines, I should be paid off in the next several months, as I can only afford to give then a grand per month.

    When I have it paid off, there probably be a newer phone promising to be the "next big thing," so yeah.....

    Funny thing, how much we love our smartphones :D

    I always misplace my phone. I been neglecting my phone for a while since my boyfriend started working too much.
    It's nice while you're out, but at home, there's so many things to distract me from it. I'm glad you're putting your debt first.
    I buy many gadgets for myself so I don't get stuck with anything. It's just to say that I have it.

    I can guarantee you that you're not missing out on anything. You have the best thing next to you, which is your beloved girlfriend.
