Holy Shit, Android spell check is mind blowingly retarded, it is correcting words that are spelled correctly, not just once at least 10x already, and I have double checked the spelling on google to make sure i'm not just having a stroke or something.

Samsung S5 is dust proof and water proof for up to 1ft of water up to 15 minutes or something like that. My wife has it and the screen resolution is awesome, they did a very good job. I have the HTCOne M8 and the speakers are awesome, I came from iPhone 5.

I've got the S5, I think it's great if you're the kind of person that really uses it a lot and will take advantage of the features. Sure it's pretty and has a great display, but if you're just looking for a phone that can browse the web, it probably isn't worth the price. If you use your phone the way most people do these days, you'd be pretty happy with it.

I have an IPhone 5 as a company phone. In my opinion, the IPhone isn't even in the same league as the S5.

None of the sales staff that jumped on the iPhone bandwagon are happy with it as a business tool.

I just saw that the Maxx and LG both have wireless charging built in.... Is anyone using that feature and how well does it work?

Can the music I have payed for on iTunes be taken with me if I go back to android?

I started with android phones and after 4 different ones with major problems in 2 years I went to the IPhone 5 on the release date. I have never had a phone this long EVER. I have no issue with anything other than the battery life sucks. Being that I'm in my truck 10-15 hours a day it's not horrible but I still hate the short life. Also how well does android work with fords sync? That HUGELY important to me.

You can convert iTunes music files over using your computer. I also here that apple might launch iTunes for android.

I'm considering going to android. With the iPhone 6 5.5 inch screen coming in sept, it might be to easy for me to stick with a iPhone.

I'm having worse service over the last 3-4 months. Could it be the fact my phone is almost 2 years old?

I remember the days of Nextel rugged phones that lasted as long as you wanted. Even the i860 lasted and was pretty nice for its time.

Anyone have a smart watch? I was thinking about picking one up. Mainly to act as a Bluetooth, because I can never here my phone ring at work.

That happened to me with an old Motorola phone I had. It was pretty frustrating until I figured it out.

I'm at 22 hours and 50 percent battery on my note 3. Much better than any iPhone.

I consistently get between 2 and 2.5 days with my note 3. little internet(web browing/youtube), many texts/calls is a usual day. I'm not a heavy user at all.

This isn't for a specific phone, but may help someone. Motorolas are known for having better reception than most of the competitors. I heard it from a few people, including at the Verizon store, did some research, and that seems to be the general consensus. Not the best and fanciest features(resolution, camera, etc), but they work the best as an actual phone when you need them to. For this reason, coupled with the superior battery life of the RZR MAXX, I went with that. I've been extremely happy with it and am coming up on 2 years. I'll be replacing it with the new MAXX when I upgrade. My wife got the Samsung Galaxy S3 at the same time, and while she loved the features, she often couldn't use it out in the sticks where we live because she didn't have service. She bitched about it a lot. Then it stopped taking a charge after less than a year, she switched to a Motorola, and hasn't looked back since.
