Re: The iMore 20K / 50K Post Challenge - Are you up for it?
Oh I have no problems sharing my thought process, no worries. Basically, I've had my iPhone for 9 months now, the longest I've ever had/used any phone, and I just got bored. I wanted something fresh and new and I finally figured out a way to use my upgrades and keep unlimited data so I just went to the store to get something to keep me entertained until the iPhone 6 launches. I actually went with the intention of getting the One M8 but ultimately fell in love with the S5, particularly the screen, so I impulsively pulled the trigger on it and I'm so glad I did. It has a lot of small features that I love, particularly the heart rate monitor and the IR blaster to control my TV and satellite box. I know the heart rate monitor won't matter to most, but I have a heart condition called Prolonged QT Syndrome that requires me to keep a close eye on my pulse. With that being said, the iPhone can also track your pulse with an app, but it isn't as accurate when compared to the S5 (using my dedicated, stand-alone heart rate monitor as the authority). But aside from those features, I just really like it. However, I still think the 5S is the better phone for most. It's rock solid and simpler, but it lacks some bells and whistles that the S5 has. So each phone has it's demographic and I fall somewhere in the middle.
