I think that we already know that an iDevice is the only thing you would ever consider -- it does not matter if the S4 has a nicer screen (it almost certainly does), a faster processor (it almost certainly does), a better keyboard and voice recognition (its predecessor already does), a better camera (extremely likely), etc, etc. It does not have a half-eaten fruit drawn on it, so you don't want it, without even having seen it. OK, OK, I get it.
And you continue to show your ineptitude.
I Like Apple. Hence I am a member of this forum. But they EARNED that trust with great products. When I started getting my MSCE certs, I made fun of Apple. then I had to support Macs. Fell in love with them. Way better to use and to support. then the iPhone came along. It changed the game. I bought one. Loved it. bought another. Loved it too.
Android came out, tried it, but it was crap, both in software in hardware.
Samsung is probably the best of all the android phone makers. but it's the best of an already second-rate bunch. Who needs it when you have iOS.
Does an S4 have competitive specs compared to iPhone 5? It might. But it still loses in the OS and materials dept. and besides that, it BETTER have nice specs. IT's NEW compared to the 5. LOL
When the new iPhone comes out, let's compare your S4 again shall we?
so yes, I will buy the superior hardware when it's time for me to upgrade. Hint: It's likely the superior specs will belong to the iPhone yet again, just like the 5 when it came out.
sounds more like you are the one who would never consider in iOS masterpiece no matter how much better it is, because it's company isn't based in Korea, it doesn't copy everything shamelessly, and doesn't run a second rate OS.
