Makes ZERO sense trying to compare a giant phablet's battery to that of a 4" devices battery. Obviously you need a bag to carry around a Note 3.
Is not just about specs, do you think you will enjoy better watching a movie on a non-HD TV vs a HD-TV? Of course not!
Higher resolution allow you to enjoy more watching videos, browsing the web, writing emails, playing games, etc.
The Pixel resolution on the iPhone 5s is stated as a "Retina Display". This means that the human eye can't distinguish one pixel from another at a normal viewing distance. Now why would it matter if the display becomes a 4K display, because to the human eye you cant distinguish the current number of pixels from 4K in the same 4" viewing area.
Hence your argument about not having HD screen's is flawed. The eye can't anyway tell the difference apart !
So yes it's just a Spec, that has no added value other than killing your battery life further !
You don't need to install anything on your Windows PC to transfer files between the PC and the smartphone or even the SD drive.
My Note 3 have no lag.
I don't see an application that I need to use that I don't have available on the Android Market.
You my friend haven't seen the choice of apps on the iOS store then :). It's like saying in the land of the blind the one eyed man's king. Your happy with what choices you have on the Android Store now, just because you haven't been spoiled with the choice you'll find on the iOS App Store. Which is precisely why a user moving from Apple's platform to Android will notice that lack of Apps. I can go on forever if i start naming titles.
On drop test, there is no advantage between aluminum or plastic smartphones, but the aluminum ones trend to get scratch easier. A case works for both to protect them.
It's not about the material used that is at question here.. Plastic or Metal ! It's about how premium the device feels when you hold one. I hold any Galaxy or Note device in my hand and it feels cheap, just because I been spoiled with the feel of the iPhone's.
The true, is that there's nothing better on the iphone 5s than on the LG G2 or the Note 3 for example.
Finger Print sensors (Touch ID), 64 bit goodness with Apps that load up at twice the speed, A compact design that actually hides away in your pocket (unlike the gody big devices sticking out of your pocket), and a mature eco system that none of the others out there can match up.
You'll also realise that buying into an iPhone 5S is not just getting one device. You buy into Apple's entire eco system.
The eco system on the Android world is going more fragmented as we speak. Every device manufacturer has his own store, and a plethora of screen size's, and device capabilities making app development for the platform a nightmare for developers.
So think again, the truth is LG G2 and the Note 3 are utter RUBBISH, to even try to compare it to an iPhone 5S (or for that matter even its older predecessor the iPhone 5).
