    Played with the Galaxy S4 today, such an impressive hardware without any doubt. I was especially in love with the 5" display, I thought it was the perfect display size for today's smartphone. Sure, its still pretty hard to be used with one hand, but it feels just right in the hand. My problem is that all of my family members use the iPhone, it'd be nice to be able to use the iMessage and Facetime features. Many of my friends have iPhone as well. I also personally prefer the iOS, and somewhat excited for the upcoming iOS 7. This made me wish that Apple releases a 5" iPhone, I will get it without any hesitation.. In the meantime though, I can only envy the Galaxy S4 owners. Do you guys feel the same way?

    I still wouldn't get a iPhone.... I download a lot of videos amd songs directly from YouTube and side loads a lot of fonts and love changing the way my home screen looks and its animation.... Its more to android then screen size over iPhone.... And the talk app is just as fast as I message all u need is the Google email of the person

    I think a larger screen could be both a blessing and a curse for Apple. If iPhone's had a larger screen, I would be more tempted to give them another (last iPhone I had was 3g); but I feel it could mess with the fan base a bit.

    And I do agree that face time is a valuable thing when all other family member have iPhone's. My dad, step mom, and sister all facetime, and don't have Skype.

    The main reason I have an ipad is facetime. Best thing apple has done in my opinion. Still can't stand the iphone though.

    I just came from an iPhone 5 I'd go back in a second if it had a 5 inch full hd screen. The are a lot of features about Android I like but is has it beat in most ways.

    But that's just my opinion, everyone has one.

    I will also be looking for a new laptop in a couple of months since my Sony Vaio is startin to act weird... Looking at the options today, pretty tempting to actually get the 15" retina display macbook pro. I know it's very expensive, but the resale value holds up very very well.

    Tim Cook recently stated they weren't going to go that route and it makes sense. It would be interesting to see, though. Especially if they redesign the UI like they're rumored to be doing. I don't really have anything against Apple. Wouldn't choose to use one, but I understand why so many people do.

    Hopefully by the end of the year, in regards to a lot of family/friends having iPhones, you'll be able to say the same thing about the Galaxy S phones.

    They could, but its much easier to use the stock app than it is to use third party, definitely when most of the people you would contact have the same program. Besides, my sister often complains that tango, oovoo, and Skype are perform noticeably less than facetime, at least on her device.

    Ecosystem
    Email clients
    App exclusivity
    Better looking apps
    More availability
    Better customer support

    Your opinion of beat is different to mine right? So therefore it's not fact simply opinion.

    iOS is still iOS regardless what the screen size is so yes I would still get the S4 over the iPhone.

    Well we are on Android Central, so the majority of people will be fans off Androids OS. I'm sure over on the Apple forums they are the opposite, they like iOS and their apps and don't care about customization etc. I personally find iOS boring and well easy to use in some ways, but awful in other ways. I can't stand that it takes 5 steps to turn on or off wifi.
