    For some reason comes out with a 4.3"-4.5" screen and better specs, would any of you make the switch from your S4?

    Not I. I'm patiently waiting for my Verizon Pre-order to arrive so I can sell my iPhone 5. I'm tired of iOS and need a change. Even if the iOS 7 does resemble that it still seems more of the same to me.

    I used to have a iPhone (3GS days) .. Once I tried Android I knew it was for me. I will never go back to iPhone / iOS. I just like Android to much .

    I just switched from the iPhone 5. Android has blown me away. I love my Macs and still love my old iPhone some too. I think it really comes down to which platform offers the best balance between innovation and stability. Right now that's Android, but this could change in a few months. A year ago if you would have told me that I'd have an Android, I would have laughed. Never say never if you are a true tech nerd :-)

    A friend of mine used android for a long time, tried the Gs3 then switched over to iphone 5, all because he said its better for watching movies/ youtube ect... He hasn't switched back, to this day I'm still baffled.

    Used to own an iPhone 4s, 4, 3Gs, and 3G prior to switching to the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. I would say if the new iPhones comes with ability to select default applications, widgets, customizable lock screen, and able to accomplish talk and surf on the VZW 4G LTE, then I will switch back. However, given apples reputation and records I doubt I will see those any time soon.

    In a way I felt apple play a game where they release one or two improved/ new features for each generation of phones, so in the long run they can make more money bc people will keep switching buying a new phone every 6 month from them just for the "newest" one feature. Quite frankly I've long lost my patience with Apple. I am also tired of hearing them suing every other company over patent issues. Apparently they patented everything. In a fierce competative market such as smartphones, instead of learning to put out more competitive devices, they try to eliminate competition by using our justice system for their business gains. It's a smart move on their part, but as a consumer it disgusts me enough that most likely I will choose to never ever buy any of their products ever again.

    If the iPhone has a bigger screen, then I will certainly make the switch. I will be happy with my note 2 for now. My friend showed me that his jail broken iPhone could do a lot of features that I never knew was possible. Anyways, I am loving android but would want to give something else a try.

    There's a few Concepts on YouTube, this is my favorite and if we do get this I will sell my One & S4.

    In 6 months I will have iPhone 5S (or 6) and Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

    Dang Samsung trying to make money with GS4, wish they would release info on GN3, now!

    Nope, those videos look like the GS3. I use to have iPhones up thru the 4S. Then the GS3 changed me for good. Before that there was always something that would pull me back to the iPhone. With the GS3 and Android 4.0 Google pulled ahead of Apple, at least for me.

    Never will completely switch back. Android just is more for me then iOS. But I have an iPhone 5 alongside my N4 so I guess yes?

    So what you mean is if it looks like Android but still only does half as much? Why go backwards?

    I've actually just recently switched from Android to iOS (jailbroken). I've had many Android devices (HTC EVO, Nexus S, Motorola Photon, Galaxy Nexus, RAZR MAXX, MAXX HD, DNA, Note 2, etc). I've honestly been quite pleased. Android really frustrated me with lag issues and stuttering animations; it significantly detracts from the experience and really bothers me. I was hoping the S4 would be the salvation with the specs hyped to the moon. I played with it for a while and the lag/stutter was just as prevalent as ever. I picked up an iPhone 5 and jailbroke it. I have lockscreen widgets that do what I want, quick settings, changed default apps (browser, navigation) and its the smoothest device I've ever owned.

    Lag, poor quality screens, reception and headphone jack audio quality are the 4 things that bother me most. The S4 has a great screen (bested only by the HTC One), not sure about the audio quality but it definitely has lag/stutter...perhaps I'll switch back when CyanogenMod releases a final, fully functional stable build, but until then, I've been quite happy with the iPhone. It also has the strongest reception of any phone I've ever used...and that includes my Motorola devices!

    So flame me if you want, but for the first time in a very long time, I like my phone.

    No flame, just curious. Why do you still frequent Android Forums? Yes, you can visit any Forum you want and I will defend to the death your right to do so. But, what's the attraction for someone with a dislike for Android and a love iOS?
