    I doubt you'll find many of those lol. For years I said I'd never switch from iPhone to Android and I'm finally taking the plunge with the Galaxy S4 when my Verizon pre-order arrives on Tuesday. Ultra-stale iOS and iPhone's tiny screen just can't compete anymore.

    I wouldn't say it can't compete. Sales prove people still have GREAT interest in it.

    I should've been more clear. It can't compete in eyes of those who are at least relatively tech-savvy. Most iPhone users jump to what's popular, not what's actually the best.

    I just jumped a from iPhone 5 to the S4 a couple of weeks ago. I loved my iPhone and still love my iPad Mini, MacBook Air. I was tempted by the large screen and associated larger UI. I love the screen, the customizability, etc. I can't see going back anytime soon, but I do miss the ease of use of some core apps, better battery life, and Apple ecosystem integration. I feel that Android finally has a true competitor in the S4, HTC One, LG Optimus Pro, etc. Apple needs to step it up. I love that there is real competition now between these two.

    I didn't have an iPhone 5 but the iPhone 4s as well as my friend he had the iPhone 5 and we have been really enjoying the phones much more than the iPhone..

    I still love my ipad/macbook pro & iMac but for phones - S4 is awesome and something different

    Been an iPhone (3G, 4S, 5) user since 2010 and i switched to GS4. LOVING IT. ) I'm guessing i'll start purchasing Samsung/Android products from now on. And what i've noticed is Android is more "customizable" than the iOS which i found very great.

    For me they'll need to liven iOS somehow, and not by making it more "flat" like the rumors say. They're also gonna have to ship a version with a larger screen. 4 inches doesn't cut it for me

    Before Jelly Bean & Nova Launcher Prime I kept going back but now I'm done. I had the iPhone 5 for two weeks before I sold it.

    This was posted here, sorry I can't remember who but if iOS 7 is anything like this I will go back. That's the beauty of having two Super Phones. LOL

    I am a developer who decided to make the S4 his first Android phone. Having the iphone 3g onward, I can say I do not miss my iPhone 5 as much as I miss iMessage. That being stated, I am considering swapping out my S4 with a HTC One or the LG Optimus Pro. I am not enjoying the touchwiz lag experience and so far tinkering with my wife's HTC One has led me to have second thoughts. Only thing I am more worried about the lack of the removable back plate but I never had one with all my iPhones so I can still live without one.

    Put a launcher on it... Or better yet, get the Google edition s4.

    I am not going the Super Computer route of the GS4 (mid contract worries), but I am going to get a Nexus 4 shortly. I am not new to Android as I have had an Android device before, nor am I such a fan boy that switching is difficult. I am going to Android because I am very much and always has been a Google services user. Even though we have great apps on iOS I want to imagine the experience is better on Android. Ill see. I think both OSs are great, tailored for people with different needs. The "tech savvy" nonsense doesnt fly, as I know some rather astute software developers and electronic engineers (groups of people I associate with) who prefer to use iOS and I dont think they are dumb. It is just a matter of preference and particular needs. The same goes for someone who chooses WP or BBOS. We have choice in our market and thats great, but we should probably respect other opinions.

    I recently just switched from the iPhone to the white galaxy s4 (two days ago!!!)

    I ALWAYS said I would never leave Apple products because they were the best, most reliable, and just beautiful, until ....... Android started destroying the market lol. I can't even compare the two. My whole family has iPhones, and the galaxy just blows it out of the water. Although the free space was an issue at first, putting everything but apps on the sd card leaves more then enough room for myself. I have also converted over my boyfriend from an iPhone, all because he got his hands on mine and was, needless to say, so shocked and in love with it that he cancelled his iphone contract and bought the S4. Its an amazing phone and I can't stop recommending it. But with that said, I will always be an Apple lover at heart, I couldn't buy anything other than a Mac for a computer.

    I have the iPhone 5 and refuse to switch to any android phone. If I was going to switch it would be to a nexus 4 or maybe a nexus GS4 but I think it's too big really. The reason I refuse to switch though is partially because I love ios (don't hate android at all but I prefer ios) and mostly because apple simply has the best overall ecosystem right now. If you are willing to deal with the lack of customization, the apple ecosystem is beautiful and works great. I won't get rid of my MacBook or ipad so it just makes more sense for me to use an iPhone.

    All that said, if anyone asked me which phone to get I would tell them they have to at least play with the gs4 before deciding on an iPhone or other android iPhone.

    Maybe it shouldn't be like this out of the box. Why should I have to put a launcher on it to fix Samsung's short comings?

    Beauty of android. If you want a phone working one way out of the box, get an iPhone. Want a beast of a phone that you fix the way YOU want, get the GS4.

    Its funny, I remember when GS3 was coming out people criticized it for the large screen, it seems like people who start using the bigger screen, can't really go back to anything smaller. I see so many people say that use a note 2, can't even go from a note 2 down to a GS4 because of screen size. Just in my opinion that's one reason why people switch from Ios to android,(I know i know not the only reason...) they see there friends using a phone with 4.7"+ screen and think, that's awesome, I wish my Apple's screen was bigger

    Just go to Walmart or Amazon and get a 32 gb memory card. Then you will have a 48 gig phone.
