    The 4S had pretty bad battery life. The iPhone 4 had really good battery life though so not sure what Apple changed between them. I would bet an i4 can outlast a S4 no problem, not really a far comparison again though.

    When I had an i5 the battery was pretty much on par with my S4, I had both at the same time and used them very similarly. My 5S has been a definite improvement over both.

I always have 3 email accounts pushed to my phones so that is the same. I've never heard that the 4S had the worst battery life. I didn't find it any worse than my 3GS which I had prior to my 4S.
    Just Google battery life and 4S and you'll get scads of hits.. Do the same search with the 5 and you'll get a lot less hits.. Then of course - do the same search about the S4 and you'll hear that pretty much everybody expects more battery life out of their phone, whicheverone, than they actually get.. LOL!! Side by side - daily - ip5 and S4 -- ip5 won easily.. Again you have to set them up with the same level of services on. That's actually hard -- to do a real 1:1 test.. People just test 'out of the box' and then make these broad sweeping conclusions on these forums.. You have to do careful testing making sure it's a true 1:1 test.

    People also don't know how to 'condition' their battery after a few days of use.. Another big topic.. I should say 'condition the battery level sensor'... since LIon rechargeables don't need the 'conditioning' the the old NiCad rechargeables needed.. But the battery level sensor in a LIon battery does need conditioning every so often to give you correct readings..
    Here to help if I can. If I can't I know someone who can!

    Making it hazard-proof to the tune of the Galaxy S4 Active would've been an excellent selling point, in my humble opinion. That would've given people a real incentive to look away from the delicate high end model.

    I went to the S4 after the ip5. Wonderful phone and the bigger screen was a plus but the battery was about the same. I can palm a basketball and I still found one-handed use to be a headache at time. In fact, Swype was the main reason it was tolerable. I went back to the 5S thinking I'd miss the S4 screen but I don't feel the "loss" at all. At the end of the day it was constant freezing in the OS that eventually did me in.

    I actually went back and forth between the S4 and HTC One twice EACH before going back to the iPhone. Personally I love the HTC One more than the S4 by far. It's a beautiful piece of machinery, but the lack of a menu button ultimately is what drove me back to the S4 along with them being slow to release updates.

    Having gone back to the iPhone, the only things I miss are the widgets and Swype (which iPhones should've had ages ago). But in going back to the theme, the S4 battery was nothing impressive. If anything, the little-mentioned HTC One is a better iPhone competitor. A dedicated menu button and software update would have been a majorrrrr blow to any iPhone......again, in MY opinion.

    The best Android ever made was the HTC Evo-3D.
    Not for the camera, but for the beautiful screen and dynamic text reflow/wrapping in browsers.
    With their small screens, you'd have thought text reflow would be a no-brainer for Apple ... but the iPhone was all about the maker's sensibilities, not the user's.
    The i-6 rumourmill has already started turning - and it's said to be coming with a 4.8" screen (variant ?).
    Anyway, Apple shares will get a massive shot in the arm if that transpires to be the case.
    Watch this space.

    Yes, but if the iphone c is now the same price as the iphone 5. For the same money ( which it is) would you rather you had a new metal iphone 5 or a plastic iphone 5.

    Not difficult to see what I'd rather have.

    Isn't the 5c $100 less than the 5 was at the same memory level? The 5S took the previous price points that the 5 originally had, so the 5C is not the same money as the 5.
