Just go to the Play Store. You can stream or download.

Is there a rental type of deal like you can get for Ipads? I see where you can buy them for $9.99, but I only have $5.99.

Yeah it looks like that title is only for buying, not renting.

I was hopeful for the 5s/5c and was utterly disappointed. also ios7 is completely ridiculous and I want it off my phone. I really don't want to jump, but now it's either wait another year for the 6 - likely to be disappointed again - or just get something else

Dumped my iPhone, and went back to Android. Got a Maxx also. I'm really happy with it. The bigger size was taking a bit to get used to. But it's been awesome.

For me the descision was pretty easy. My iPhone was complete shit after iOS7. So, I walked into Verizon right before Christmas. They gave me $120 for the shit iPhone!!!!!! And the Maxx was marked down to $150!!! for $30, I walked out was a brand new phone that I've been really happy with.

If I wanted to stick with another iPhone, it was going to cost me a couple hundy. I still can't believe they gave me $120 for that phone.

I just made the jump from an iPhone 4s to the new HTC One M8.

Wow.

Only issue has been trying to remove my number from iMessage. This is like trying to break up with a crazy girlfriend.

If anyone out there is going to jump the iPhone ship, turn off iMessage several days before you switch to your new android phone....

Yeah. That was a huge PITA. Even after I removed the devices and turned off imessage, it took almost a week for me to start receiving all texts from iphones.

I switcched from having several different motorola android phones to a samsung s4 shortly after they came out. Samsung blows motorola out of the water. So much more stable over time and it has nicer features. My wife just switched to one from her iphone. We are Mac people and she hated the iPhone 5. Called it a dumb phone.
