    My Galaxy S3 power button broke a few days ago so I need a new phone. I've always been an Android user but the Galaxy S5 is fucking huge (TWSS). Should I switch to an Iphone or just suck it up and walk around with a mini tablet in my pocket?

    It doesn't really matter anymore. They're both great phones. I've had the 5S for a year and I have zero complaints. Do you care about synching up with other Apple devices?

    The iPhone 6 is going to be 100% transparent indestructible glass, play every PS1 game and have a built in taser, so you MIGHT wanna wait for that.

    The 6 is coming out soon, I'm waiting for that. My 4s is on its last legs but I paid 700 bucks for the unlocked motherfucker so I am going to use it to the last drop.

    I know I base my phone decisions on what type of glass it has :rolleyes:

    Apple has stagnated. BIG time. They still make a great device but compared to the flagship android models out the iPhone is a toy. Fact.

    wait 2 months for iPhone 6 def

    FYI that display is not 100% sapphire after all, but probably a combination of sapphire fused with glass.. seems to be more scratch resistant than gorilla glass 3 tho

    How many scratches have you all had on your GG3 or GG2 or whatever phones? I never use screen protection and haven't had a scratched screen since my blackjack2. Why are we focusing on dumb shit instead of important shit?
