    i have always been a user of the iphones but saw the galaxy s6 and just had to try it out. Well two months in and I miss my iPhone! and thinking about switching back. How many people have switched to the galaxy from the iPhone and now switching back?

    My friend has the new Galaxy and it is a nice phone but would not sway me enough to leave Apple. All their devices work to well with each other! I do love that big OLED screen!

    I bought this phone because of the amazing battery life then they did a update and it completely ruined the battery life I can't even get 7 hours on the s6 I just miss the ease of iphone. Plus all the cute cases they have for it :)

    Well it seems that any Apple user that was ts to try Android goes with Samsung (for what reason I don't understand), so I would imagine there are a lot of switchers.

    Probably because the S6 is the device people most directly compare to the iPhone 6 (in terms of design, thinness, ecosystem, marketing, etc.). Even the names matched up this year.

    No doubt that Apple and Samsung will continue to slug it out. I have owned a Galaxy, I think the S5, and it was quite a powerful phone with lots of features. Just been on iPhones too long to change.

    Yes, true. Up until this year Samsung hadn't put out a really nice device at all, and there are many other manufacturers deserving of a comparison to Apple than them. I guess marketing and comparable looks win out.

    Although LG G2 is an order phone it's still a beast.

    I guess so. Looking at the S6's box, headphones, design, and fingerprint sensor, you can tell it was "inspired" by the iPhone 6.

    Do you think it would be worth switching for the iphone 6 again or just waiting for another iphone to release

    Did you go back to the iphone 6? I'm really want to go to verizon right now and trade the s6 in for the iphone 6 I just can't stand it anymore I'm tired of the crashing apps and everything. Don't get me wrong the s6 is a nice looking phone but there is just something about apple

    If you can wait 3 more months and like what the rumored specs are for the iPhone 6s, I would say wait.

    I know this won't be the popular answer, but I say get what you like. The 6S is probably 3 months away and that's a long time to be with something you're not happy with.

    You'll be out some money, but sometimes you just have to scratch that itch you know? I did the exact same thing with the LG G3 last year. Bought it in July, sold it on eBay in August, went right back to my trusty 5S and never looked back. It was a GREAT phone, just not for me.

    In my experience with Samsung Galaxy S phones (I tried an S4 for two days and my niece has an S5),the user experience only gets worse with touchwiz. It's like it has a shelf life or something and starts to rot the longer you use it. If you're unhappy with it after two months, by September you'll be ready to stab it with a butter knife.

    Get what you want...life's too short!
