    Where did you hear all of this? I've had my S4 for a week now, and have not noticed any issues at all. My iPhone 4S felt warmer than this phone.

    I have not noticed either of these issues either. I had an iPhone 4s which is basically the same as the iPhone 5 and I'm so glad I swapped.

    All new phones will have their problems but I'm sure this will be fixed soon

    Are you really asking this question on an Androiod site in a S4 forum? Ask the same question on iMore in the iPhone 5 forum and let us know what majority of answers you get.

    I came from iPhone 4s and could've switched to the iPhone 5 but I.honestly got bored with it.

    Never had those problems with my S4'& I'm very happy with my choice.

    Both phones are great though, so good luck with your decision but I think there is rumor that the iPhone 5S will be coming soon.

    My battery life is wonderful and I haven't had any issues with the screen. Actually this is the first time i've heard of screen issues on an S4.

    Haha this is pretty true but after using bother I know that I personally prefer the freedom of android

    I also think apple are failing to do anything innovative and unique. All the phones are the same.

    I'm enjoying the change of scenery haha.

    Agreed. I don't know where you got your information from, but I've had my S4 for almost two weeks now, and I haven't noticed any of the so-called issues your stating.
    Simply buy the phone, try it out during the "trail" period. If you don't like it, take it back and get the iphone. Problem solved.

    No, you're speaking to people that actually own and use the S4 here...and we're saying we haven't seen the issues your talking about. This is from personal experience. If that's not proof enough for you, maybe you're in the wrong thread here and should be in the I-Phone forums bud.

    Yes there will be updates in the future. Some updates are already pushing out now to fix lag issues, I don't expect this to be the last update

    I think your question should have been, does the Samsung GS4 suffer from X problems? And not so much which should you get. Few members of Android Central would tell you get the iPhone and few members on iMore would tell you get the GS4, and asking on either is trying to get a nice little which is better argument going. That wouldnt solve your problem. You know which phone you prefer as it is something personal. If however, you are concerned with a particular issue, well that can be dealt with easily.

    Well said DC9. Simple fact is this. Samsung has always supported their devices via updates, etc...The phone was just released on what, April 27th? on AT&T anyway. And they just had a software update this morning. I am confidant that whatever issues come down the road, they'll make sure its addressed in a timely enough fashion.

    I've had the S4 for a week and a half and haven't noticed those issues. I owned the iPhone 4S & 5 also last year and never had issues.

    I think most of the issues on both sides are operator errors!

    I have been using apple for the last 5 years, most recently the iphone 5. I liked the look of galaxies and just wanted to experience a less restrictive OS so I made a switch. I am not sure if the s4 I got is defective or what but the browser seems slow, phone keeps crashing, and cant see the screen in sunlight. I never had these problems with my iphones. Once again I really want the s4 to be my new phone and I know that all first releases have problems but some things with this phone are really becoming annoying.

    I haven't noticed the crashing or slow browser. What browser are you using and do you notice the crashing with specific apps or just apps in general

    However, I do find the screen hard to view in direct sunlight. Turn the brightness up to max and see if that helps.

    It shouldn't be crashing. So either it's an app issue or a defective phone. Mine has never crashed. I do have one specific app that does but it also did on my previous phone. As far as direct sunlight I have yet to see a phone or tablet that I would say is acceptable in such conditions. All you can do is crank up the brightness.
