Zombie well done on the sick day, I'm debating the same for tomorrow.

The only thing I will say about the iPhone, even though the Galaxy has high megapixels and supposedly has a better video camera, I still think that the iPhone's camera system is WAY more intuitive and takes cleaner action shots, photos and video. I have used iPhone photos for professional print jobs and the auto focus is amazing. The Galaxy has all these video features, but it just doesn't "think" the way the iPhone does...
So, on paper, the Galaxy camera is better, but something about the iPhone just makes it "smarter" when you snap a lot of photos....
But ohh well. I loved every moment I had with the iPhone. Can't hate on it too much. The straw that broke the Camels back was that I had a busted screen. Front and back. I even had a case on it. Fell out of my pocket one day, barely even hit the ground, bam, cracked to hell.... Same thing happened to my wife.
And the final Galaxy selling point, was when the guy took his Galaxy and threw it about 15 feet across the room, up against a wall and it smacked on the ground. He walked over, dusted it off and it didn't even had a scratch. He said, that is yet another reason why these phones are better. The Galaxy 5 is water proof, crack proof, the whole nine. You can take that thing under water and play games on it....
I still have an otter box on mine, but I don't have to worry about damaging the thing at all really.

Ohh, and there are no Sprint Cell/PCS towers on Hilton Head Island. I didn't even have service in my house, or at my restaurant. Every call would drop at the bridge. No reception in a store. It rendered the phone useless. They told me they would send me some magnification equipment to boost my signal, but they wanted like 200 bucks per unit and people that had them on the island said they still didn't work....
So, at the time, Verizon had the free iPhone 5 or the new Galaxy. Copped the new galaxy for free with a new contract. It just kind of worked out that way.

It's a close one. My hatred for apple is on a grand level, not really about the phone. If you don't mind paying for apps and music, and not being able to play movies or videos, or you don't use your phone for those reasons, the the iPhone is great.
To each their own. But with that being said, I guess I will stop my ranting and raving.
I loved my iPhone, I just love the Galaxy more. freedom of information is a big deal to me. It always has been. I used to write open source code a lot. That is how things get better. Being transparent. Apple is many things, transparent is NOT one of them.
That is also why a linux machine will never get hacked and never crash. Open source. Freedom of information. Because all BS aside, if I isolated any of your IP addresses, and you are on a MAC or a PC, I could shut your machine down from my linux box at home with the click of one button.

I'm basically gonna use the phone for talking, texting, taking pics...no apps, social media, that other stuff...I like transparency too.

I like my iPhone just fine. No troubles. But I agree with Zach as far as transparency. I hate iTunes. Totally user unfriendly software at least for me. I wish I could just access stuff on my phone like it was a jump drive.
