Re: Thinking of Trading my Note 3 for iPhone 5s..
I'll give you my experience(s) on both platforms. I'm a tech junky. I went from BlackBerry to Android to iOS back to Android back to iOS and now I've been on Android for about 10-11 months. My most recent phones are the DNA, S4 and I'm currently using the Moto X. Thank god for the Moto X - those skins on Android are a bane to its existence. Android definitely provides you with choice and customization, which is a great thing. You can make the phone look/work for you. iOS devices are obviously a little more locked down, but that's not completely a bad thing. Due to their nature, they are more stable, more fluid, and for the tech junky in me or you, they hold their value incredibly well. More so than any Android on the market today. If camera is one of your most important features, you won't be disappointed. I still feel like the cameras they put in iPhones (last one I used was an iPhone 5, haven't tried out the 5S yet) are the best in the business. I know Nokia makes a good camera too, but until they make an Android phone I won't be trying them out.

1. Camera. Camera. Camera. I've been hunting for a camera as good as the iP5 since I left. The DNA didn't have it. The S4 didn't have it. And the Moto X doesn't have it. They all have capable shooters, but the quality, clarity, and speed lies with the iPhone. I think it's the best rounded camera experience on the market. I have two daughters and my cellphone is my primary camera. This is just about the most important feature to me, and you can't beat the quality of the camera.
2. Quality of the device on the whole. iOS devices are the best made devices on the market. They are beautiful. They're like pieces of art in your pocket. And while they have their faults, and sometimes you may have to swap one for another, the major issues seem few and far between. Android phones all have some sort of glitch. Haven't found one that doesn't have one major issue.
3. Apple's customer service. I can't stress to you enough about their customer service. It's the best in the business. I had some issues with a 5 last year and they pretty much held my hand, made calls TO ME to check on the situation, and even sent me some free stuff to make up for the issues. I have to go through their phone customer service because I'm about 130 miles from an Apple store. Your situation may be different.
4. Apps. The quality of apps on iOS devices are top notch. While Android is getting better here, iOS is still winning. And most apps come out for iOS first. Not to mention that pretty much any and every Google app is on iOS. I think the only one for me that's missing is Keep.
5. For me personally, what I've come to use my phone for are phone calls, texts, appointments, notes, email, and pictures. I don't game on my phone, so that's not important. iOS devices do all of that incredibly well.
Don't know if this ramble was any help to you, but I'll answer any questions if you have them.
