I'll get the 5s, the app store and app permissions are better. Also I don't really want to walk around with a phablet in my pocket.


Uh...app permissions for Apple phones are not necessarily better. Throughout the time that I've had an Android phone (3+ years) I've been able to find plenty of apps that don't require crazy permissions. There are also ways around permissions if the app you really want to use requires crazy requirements.

Also, the S4 isn't a phablet; that's reserved more for the Note line of phones.


When I say better I mean they can be changed, and I would rather not have to look for work arounds.
Whatever you want to call it, it's larger than I'd care to have, and honestly I thought the iPhone 4/4s was a good size for a smart phone.

You do realize that iPhone actually have the best hardware and Software right? 64 bit chip bro. Do you have ANY idea what that means AT ALL?

A larger word size and potentially better performance for certain apps that benefit from larger registers and the ability to address more memory assuming more is installed(though data takes up twice the space)? In the case of the ARM chips in the iPhone and iPad 128 bit SIMD registers.

I have to advise against getting the GS4, purely because many users have had their phone battery suddenly explode.
I also advise against the iphone, because Apple is very restrictive in what you can do with your phone.
Just go on youtube and search Samsung Galaxy S4 catches fire, you'll find videos where the S4 has caught fire and exploded. I suggest going with something else. Like maybe the HTC One or something.
