Just wondering if anybody has jumped from the GS4 or GS5 to the iPhone 6 or 6 plus.

I am thinking of doing this and just wondered if anybody else had done this and loved it or perhaps regretted it.

Feeling a little disillusioned with my GS4 which I am on my second one, first one kept dropping calls all the time and second one (now a year old) keeps randomly saying sim card is missing.

I used to have an Iphone 4s before jumping to the GS4 but am now thinking of jumping back as my current plan is up in a few weeks.

Do you have a lot of android apps you've bought? 
How many places do you charge your phone? You'll need a new cable at each location. 
You will lose the ability use your phone on *every* Windows machine to just download your photos etc
And you will lose the ability to just click and drag movies to your phone (Or use iTunes to convert I suppose..)


Just some food for thought :-)

Have only bought a few apps and would have actually bought more apple apps as have ipad 2


I like the look of the GS6 just the $$ that is putting me off a bit.

I did. Everything worked well, except iOS 8. Man, it's as buggy as they come! But even then everything is smoother than the GS4. Can't comment about any other android phone however.

But if you cherish good photos, it seems to be able to make photos look good.




Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.

Yeah it killed my ipad 2 wish I never upgraded it.

Might have to go in store and have a play with a 6 and 6 plus I think.

Rubbish.

You can copy your photos off an iPhone just like any other portable hard drive. There are heaps of apps that permit movies of any format to be copied onto an iPhone. VLC for example, and it's free.

Note 4 is the best phone I've used before..
just seems to me like they're running out of ideas for iphones.
Looking at where samsung is going, the newer "premium" devices are going to blow iphones away..

In what sense? 

I'm curious, not being defensive....
