    I had a 4s. Then upgraded to a S4 active and note 2. Thinking about going back to apple with the 5s?

    Biggest difference to me is the screen sizes. Mine are huge compared to the iPhone now. But I may pick up a tablet or two to replace the note 2

    If you like Android and want a larger screen than the iPhones, but not a Note 2, I highly recommend the Google Nexus 5 (I also have the iPhone 5s). Best phone I've ever had (my tablets get less use now because the screen is just about perfect.) and, if you don't go the subsidized route, and do buy it outright from Google, it reeeally brings down your total cost of ownership. 32gig is only $399. Only caveat is that it's not usable on Verizon. At&T, T-Mobile, etc and you're good to go.

    Im undecided on android to be honest with you. The keyboard on apple is much better in my opinion. I have Google keyboard now I think. I looked at the flex but I have a feeling it'll get snapped in half being curved lol

    I'm thinking about possibly picking up a note 10 if I got the iPhone. I have a kindle fire but its strictly for books.

    We have att next now.

    I have the 5s (and 4s), in addition to the Google Nexus 5, Galaxy S3, and Galaxy S, plus Android and iPad tablets (mini and Air), but I'm not sure what kind of feedback you're looking for.

    In the upcoming department, the Galaxy S5 looks to be coming out in the Feb-April time frame. Camera, processor, and screen resolution are the big changes for that one.

    I like the 5S a lot, yes the screen is smaller than Samsung or HTC, but I don't want to lug something huge around. You can buy a galaxy tab or iPad mini for something with a bigger screen. My iPad mini fits in my rear jeans pocket and is lightweight. I like big screens...just don't want to take up one entire pocket.

  8. I LOVE my Lg G2. Just got rid of my s3. The freedom you have over an iphone is worth it to me.

    I just upgraded to a 5s from a 4. Huge difference in speed and usability. Like you, I like life proof cases especially with what we do. I picked up an otterbox for it. I'm not crazy about the gigantic phones, they're just too big, that's why I bought a tablet, if I need something big I have it.

    I have the Note 2 and wouldn't give it up. I use the stylus all the time. I really like the ability to pull a contract from dropbox have the client read it and sign it. I have a app that lets the signature be embedded in the contract, saved and printed later. Also like to draw on the picture of the clients yard and give them a quick alternative to what they currently have. Android provides more free apps, removable memory (micro sd) and larger screen to view.
