Default iPhone 5s or Galaxy?

I currently have an iPhone 5 and am thinking about switching over to an android. I've never had any problems with my iPhone and have always been an iPhone user, just wanted to get some opinions on which is better. I mainly use my phone for web browsing, fantasy sports/scores, music and movies. Also, if I decide to go android, I'll have an iPhone 5 in perfect condition available.

i do not have personal experience using the iPhone since the 3G, but i have had the Galaxy S3 and I now own the S4 and I love it. The customization features are endless, the camera is amazing, and the screen size and HD display are amazing. would go galaxy for sure.

Personally I don't see the upside in going from the 5 to the 5S. I'm waiting AT LEAST for the 6 if not later but otherwise I'll be content with my 5 for awhile.

If you think you want to switch now go for the S4.

Is there a difference between the s4 and the s4 active besides the durability?

I think the Active is a bit smaller.

I made the switch from the 5 to the GS4 about a month ago. It took some getting used to, going back to the Android. But now that I have relearned everything, it is so much better. I'm 6'5" and have large hands, so the size of it is perfect for me. If you are a little guy, it might feel awkward. So do keep that in mind.

Well I don't think I'm a little guy, 5'10 220. I work construction, well supervision, just want something that will hold up. I don't drop it often but I live in south Louisiana so sweating is a problem. My iPhones held up quite well.

The active isn't a great phone. the camera is only 8 mega pixel in comparison to the 13 mp of the s4. also, when water gets in the headphone jack it can mess it up. and the back has to be on perfectly for it to be waterproof

i worked an excavation labor job this summer and i got an otter box for my s4 and it worked quite well. the case protects well against dust, sweat, etc.

I just recently got the Galaxy S4 and I love it. So many more features and customizations over the iPhone. you can really make it how you want it. I def recommend it.

but most people don't really want customizations. I don't think I've ran into one person who cares about that in real life, just seems to be people on forums

Android sucks on anything other than a Google branded phone. Your research shouldn't be 5s vs. GS4, it should be 5s vs. Nexus 4.

That's a truer bananas to bananas to comparison.

I'd assume the people that don't want customisation are apple users. Because they know no better. Unless they are into jail breaking phones.

I converted ten of my closest buddies to Android and especially the s4, they do the look back at all.

Imo, having used both iPhones and galaxies, the android based phones win hands down.

Well my whole reasoning with this inquiry is to find out if its worth the hassle of switching. Everytime a new iPhone comes out, I sell mine on Craigslist for around $500 and pocket the $300 because of the upgrade. It's worth more than $300 on the local market I guess because people sell them for more daily around here.
