It REALLY depends on what you're looking for. Samsung has the #1 phone in the world right now *wow okay* but it's #1 for a reason (or so millions of people think so. I'd say, consider what matters most to you and go with the phone that best meets those needs. For example, looking or a big screen adv. Galaxy, looking for apps adv. Galaxy, looking for something that's compatible with almost all electronic accessories adv. iPhone...I think you get what I'm saying. Good luck!

I had the iPhone 5 for 6 months and I used my Sprint upgrade to get the Galaxy S4. Sprint did the buy-back for my iPhone 5 and my total cost for the S4 was $19.95. The S4's screen is bigger and easier to see. The camera is awesome. S4's much faster across wi-fi and app load times are shorter. I was in India last month and I couldn't connect via Bluetooth with my iPhone 5 to share photos with other smart phones. Almost everyone has a Samsung smart phone so the S4 should be more compatible.

Get the iPhone, you;ll have more space (32 or 64GB) and tons of cases to choose from. Samsung doesn't care enough about their customers to force Sprint to sell the 32GB S4; once you download a few apps you'll run out of space on your phone.

You can insert a SDHC chip, up to 64G, in a Samsung Galaxy S4.  I have a 32G SDHC chip in mine, and that is plenty, at least for me..  Not sure what you would want with a 128G memory capacity (i.e. 64G in the phone plus 64G SDHC inserted, but you are correct that if Sprint offered the phone with the 64G internal, you could get to that capacity

Hey, Nerdiac, what sort of apps are you using that a few of them would use up 32GB?  Hilarious.

The S4 is the better phone plain and simple. S4 has a better screen with higher ppi and bigger, better camera, removable battery, micro SDcard up to 64gb, Samsung TouchWiz and Android has way more features that are better than ios. Apple simply hasn't innovated in the last few years and it shows. Check out anything on the internet about these devices being compared and everyone will agree. I'm talking credible tech sources not Apple fanboys.

you mean the 16GB? unless im missing something no 32GBs S4 has been available..only the 16GB...which once you boil it down and look you will only have a bit over 9GB of internal storage due to the built in apps and such..
