What made you chose this phone?
Thanks for all the answers
ease of use
I support American companies
It´s one of the few modern smartphones that still fits in your pocket instead of needing its on messenger bag..
Customer service policies
Snazzy looking phone
Fluidity of the OS
"It just works" (most of the time)
Because the 5s was available and the Nexus 5 wasn't when I was ready to buy.
Ditto to everything already said, except the Nexus 5 thing that was never even a glimmer of thought.
Wanted something other than a Nokia for a change, and I did not want an Android, so the list got pretty short.
My employer bought it for me. I like their decision but I'd have been fine with any free smartphone.
So ecosystem wins... Interesting
Had a Galaxy S3 for a year and I hated it. It was just loaded with rubbish I would never ever use and it felt like a cheap plastic toy.
I looked at what I really use my phone for, and I realised that I actually use it to make and receive calls, keeps appointments in my calendar, read emails and message friends. I don't need the massive screen and I really don't miss it.
I have an iPad and a Macbook Pro so everything is available across all devices. No effort and no stress.
Ecosystem was the main reason
Ease of use
Fluidity and reliability of the hardware
Good customer services (Apple)
Integrates well with my iPad and Apple TV. I had android tablets and an android phone but they didn't connect well with each other.
I wanted my MP3 player and phone to be the same device.
I wanted a smaller device
I wanted a good camera that was easy to use
I wanted a phone with 64GB internal memory
I wanted a phone that was well supported with accessories.
Build quality/ beautiful design
-Already invested in the ecosystem
-software update dependability
-well supported and the number of them adopted nationally.
-I own an iPad and an AppleTv
-3rd part support
i had an iPod touch for awhile and liked the idea of having that plus a phone.
Well I'm a BIG apple fanboy. I'm in high school so I don't have a job. So last year I got an iPhone 4 8gig for Christmas. I didn't but it. If I did I would have gotten a 5
I had an android device (HTC desire). I had troubles with the Os, got no update ever, rooted my device and flashed lots of custom roms only to see my battery discharge in a few hours and the camera not working and force closing. thought about buying another android device, but another problem was, that back then (don't know about know) back then there was no way to pay for apps if you didn't have a credit card in austria. switched to the iPhone, got my fathers apps via homesharing and am happy with the device, the support and the OS since then!
Updates and support.
I didn't want to buy into the Apple ecosystem.... But...
Android is a cluster*.
Jan-Feb of 2011 WinMo failed at their promise of direct updates for Nodo I think.
I bought an iPhone 4, first smartphone. Soon after, an iPad 2. Haven't looked back.
Because I was a long time Apple customer.
Yet my iPhone 5S was a massive disappointment. No longer relevant for my usage because it's too tiny and cramped, I've kept it as a spare.
My absolute all time favorite is my stellar Nexus 5.
With a very spacious, beautiful 5" display and SWYPE lightning fast keyboard, I'm very happy that I embraced change. Equipped with Android KitKat 4.4.2, this is one very advanced smartphone.
My smartphone productivity and enjoyment has never been better.
I was avid BlackBerry user until I discovered the world of apps... Apps, apps, and more apps.
It was the most interesting at the time when Palm had their clunky Treos and Microsoft had their Windows Mobiles that relied heavily on a stylus. Plus, I already had a Pocket PC on the side.
I chose the iPhone 5 because, coming from a Blackberry Curve, I found it much easier to use and it looks a hell of a lot nicer and not cheap looking like the Blackberry phones. Surfing on the web is easy, playing games is easy, screen size is perfect for me. I could go on and on, but in all reality, I chose the iPhone because it's something that I knew would work out for me, and by no surprise, it did.
Awesome subsidised deal.
It was cheaper than getting any alternative.
Thanks for your time and answers
