So, after using iPhone 4 for 3 years, I decided to give Galaxy Note 3 a try. I was taken by the large screen and, at the time, calendar of new iOS7 had no preview feature (thankfully they fixed it in 7.1), all of which made me want to switch. After a month of Android, I could not stand it. Yes, its a wonderful phone, but, the ability to customize Android appearance is next to useless, as I found I do not care for it as much as I thought. The extra hardware, which, on paper, trumps that of Apple, produces next to 0 difference in real life. I actually found Android to have more lag than iPhone. It was also loaded with so much extra, non-essential software. The battery, while I thought it was good, was draining extremely fast ever thought I turned off like 3/4 of features on the phone. The extra features that they show in the ads are useless, like Air Gestures, which I found never to use. No wonder Apple never adopted that, its really useless and drains battery even faster. The full HD screen had the same sharpness as Retina of the 4" iPhone. Also, 5.5" is really big, makes your pocket stretch like crazy. I think the phone is for girls mostly, as they carry a handbag, but for a guy, its like a brick. I got an offer to trade Note 3 for iPhone 5s with $200, which I took and after a month of use, I have zero regrets, best decision I made. P.S. Also had Gear, which, once you get past the initial "new thing" excitement, is a piece of useless junk.. Its just my impression.
