    Nope.
    Although sometimes I'm still find iOS confusing, I'm happy with my 5s and my LG G2 (Android)
    Firstly, as a girl I especially dislike the plastic casing...it's ugly
    Secondly, does the "dust and water resistant" really working?

    I've always liked Samsung phones. However, I'm not impressed with the last two Galaxy S phones. I'm happy with my Note 3 but I don't think I'll be moving up to a Note 4 (I might but I'm anticipating the iPhone 6 more). I'm definitely a bit disappointed in Samsung over a few issues. It's killed my drive to drop big dollars....

    S5....no.

    I'm thinking for me, it is time to quell my continued high expectations with smart phones. The product category has matured. With Samsung, my feelings have been an on-going contradiction. I dismissed most of the 'features' packed into the S3 and S4 as gimmicks. But then the S5 comes along, did very little of that, and I left the unveiling feeling slighted lol.

    For me personally, I would like to see the bulk of attention given to the camera, battery, and housing. And I'd like that attention to be given to the next iphone

    Specially the battery. What's the point of having a smartphone with all the all cool features disabled just because of its crappy battery. Most of the Background app refresh, location based reminders, 4G data etc etc turned off due to iPhone's poor battery performance. The #1 complain of iPhone.

    I have every intention of getting further android devices but they must prove worthy of my dollars (spelled LG G2, G Pro 2, perhaps G 3, or Note 4 (if it doesn't follow the S5's design queues)).

    No. I have all mobile OS devices, don't ask me why, but Samsung is just not my cup of tea. As for Android, I am waiting to see what new Moto X brings to the table.

    A phone to me is a tool, I don't get excited about one nor do I switch because I feel I may be bored.

    I played extensively with the s4 and it is really cool, however I have no desire to go out and buy one. A new phone with different tech won't really make my life much better.

    YMMV.

    I'm thinking you just pull these thing you feel are "facts" out of your a$$...#1 complaint about iPhone? Screen size...in fact, if you check online, within most surveys, battery life doesn't even register within the top 10 complaints, lol. Why is that? Because the iPhone doesn't have a battery life problem...never has.

    Exactly. I see cars in a totally different light than my mom...doesn't mean that her view is any more or less valid...it's just different. Just because you see a phone as a simple tool doesn't mean that everyone does, nor does it mean that people who view it as more are doing something wrong or right.

    I don't even complain about the screen size. I thought the iPads were for the bigger-screen needs. Different strokes....

    Not jumping to the S5. Happy wiht my 5s.

    But if the S6 stays water-resistant and adds wireless charging on the regular phone, and the iPhone 6s doesn't go waterproof, I may be persuaded to jump ship at that point...

    Staying with my 5s. As stated above, I'm looking forward to seeing what the next Moto X beings as well as the iPhone 6. The one thing that bothered me with the s5 is the available memory..... on the 16gb model there is only 8gb available for the user. I know they give you a MicroSD slot, but taking 1/2 of the available space for the OS seems a bit overboard.

    I had been off Samsung since my GS3, and back on iOS since last October. I hated all the crap features Sammy packs into their phone that do nothing but kill the battery. This hate has been reaffirmed since my company provided Optimus G took a crap and I've been using a GS4 for work...I loathe having to disable 37 preloaded samsung 'features' to get my phone to last through the day. Every time I pick my personal 5S back up I'm reminded by why I was so happy to come back to Apple.

    So no. I will not be buying the bandaid phone...now the new HTC One? That's a WHOLE other story.
