    I'm sure you can find someone on Swappa who wants to trade for an iPhone 5S.

    Win win. Otherwise you could sell the 5S and probably have more than enough to buy another S4

    Join the crowd. I started a new job and they gave me an iPhone 4S (its ok) so I didn't want to carry a second BIG phone GN3 so I sold it and like you got the 64GB 5S and I honestly regret it all the way. I will be selling it and getting another phone. Question is GS4 now or wait for the GS5 but honestly the GS5 just isn't overwhelming me.

    The S5 sadly didn't wow me at all... The s4 is still just as good in my opinion.

    Wasn't really wowed either. They made improvements, don't get me wrong, and hopefully TW has reduced the RAM resources it needs, but I was mainly hoping for a trimmed down OS, or the bar raised for minimum internal storage.

    Not that this is false, but I thought I would help explain a little about *why* you can only use a limited amount of the advertised space...

    First, when hardware manufacturers define a "gigabyte", they use the SI definition, which uses a base-10 system, i.e.
    1 KB = 1000 bytes
    1 MB = 1000 KB
    1 GB = 1000MB = 1,000,000 KB = 1,000,000,000 bytes.

    The problem is that most operating systems, define a "gigabyte" based on the binary definition, such that:
    1 KB = 2^10 bytes = 1024 bytes
    1 MB = 2^20 bytes = 1024 KB
    1 GB = 2^30 bytes = 1024 MB = 1,048,576 KB = 1,073,741,824 bytes

    So, right off the bat, that "16GB" that they tell you your phone has, is only recognized as "14.9GB" by the device itself.

    Then, the drive is partitioned into 3 primary areas (sizes listed for S4 configuration):
    /system = 2.7GB
    /data = 9.6GB
    /cache = 2.0 GB
    (there are several other system partitions that use the remaining <1GB)

    On the S4, for example, the "/system" partition is used for the OS and pre-installed apps, and "/data" is used for pretty much everything else, user-installed apps, user data, internal storage, etc. The "/cache" is like a temporary directory used by the operating system (this is also where system updates are downloaded to). So essentially the larger the OS, the larger they have to allocate to the "/system" partition, and that obviously comes at the expense of space that can be dedicated to the "/data" partition.

    This is also why if you were to take your S4 and install a smaller ROM on it, such as AOSP vanilla Android ROM, your internal storage space doesn't get any larger, because that 2.7GB is allocated for the OS regardless what what you actually load onto it.

    Fact is that you're NEVER gonna get the full advertised disk space to use as storage, and "fully-loaded" devices like the Galaxy S devices are gonna hog even more of that total number for their themselves. It's just too bad that manufacturers are required to advertised the "usable" storage capacity rather than the net storage capacity.

    Long story short? You may want to seriously consider the 32GB model.
