Bought an iPhone 4 back when it came out. It served me well, but it's time for something new.

I've been considering sticking with apple, but the galaxy s4 looks nice too. Is it a worthwhile upgrade to the s3?

Help meh?

I bought an HTC One a few weeks ago over both the iPhone 5 and Galaxy S4. The main points that put it ahead were the screen and the feel. Unlike the plastic S4, it actually felt like it would hold up to a contract period of abuse. The screen was about perfect for my hand size, any bigger or smaller would just feel awkward.

The speakers are a nice plus, and while not audiophile quality, they sound a lot better then one might expect from a phone.

The only downside I've dealt with is the death grip issue, the trade-off that comes with an aluminium shell, but using just about any case will solve that.

The only other thing I would nitpick is the slow rollout of Android 4.2.2, but that's hardly a deal breaker.

Back on topic, I have a Note II. It's a decent phone, the screen size is its main selling point. Plus, it has a stylus!

Doesn't a stylus imply a resistive touchscreen. I don't know if I'd was that for a phone. Had a phone with a resistive screen before and I didn't like it.

I like my Razr Maxx, but I think it's a Verizon exclusive. Not sure if that's applicable to you. It is also a year old at this point, but I think there's a new model.
can u even count 30 in 1 second? no, u can't. so u can't tell difference between 30fps and 60fps. stupid. -Shinobier-
