I mean you have to leave that thing on the charger all the time or it's useless, OR else turn off everything that makes it an IPhone in the first place. What's the point of that?

Personally I wish I had gone for the Samsung. I don't see an IPhone 6 being in my future as it is today. Apple dropped the ball with this big time and as of the latest iOS version it still performs the same way.


My wife has the 5 and I don't hear her complaining about the battery life. Your mileage will always vary, but if battery life with this product was that much of an issue with the general population, you'd be hearing a lot more about it on the news sites and tech blogs. Apple tends to attract that kind of attention.

I carry the 4 and my battery life is beginning to be a problem...but the phone is three years old so I'd expect it by now.

I have never had an issue with iPhone 5 battery life. I've had it last two days of normal use (wake up on day one to sleep on day two) without being on the charger. I've also taken it camping for four days without a charger - granted, in airplane mode for most of it. It lasts a heck of a lot longer than my previous HTC Evo.

I have a MacBook Pro, iPad, iPod Touch and a Galaxy S2. One of these doesn’t play well with the others. I also use iTunes and iPhoto to manage all my media. I only have the Touch because of the GS2.

BB desktop interfaced pretty well with iTunes and iPhoto but the app selection and functionality lagged behind–I know it’s getting better though. The keyboard on the Q10 is very appealing as well and like Fast I was a day 1 BB 99XX user, I just didn’t keep it for long. The GS4 is a great phone but doesn’t improve my situation.

There is much I don’t like about the iPhone and iOS, I can only hope the 5S/6 and iOS 7 will be better. With the iPhone I can consolidate two devices down to one which is very appealing to me.

Sometimes I regret getting so sucked into the Apple Ecosystem.

Don't get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE iStuff. I have, along with my iPhone, a MacBook Pro (Retina display) and an iPad (Gen 3). I love how everything just works together flawlessly. The ONLY reason I'm tempted by the BB is that keyboard. If Apple were to make an iPhone in the BB form, I'd probably (insert male ***ual bodily function here) the moment I saw it.

Apple+BB is okay. Apple+Android not okay.

If you type/text a lot the keyboard is a huge consideration. Everytime I use my iPod Touch to text or email I want to chuck it across the room...

Another vote for the Blackberry Q10 here. I have yet to own one but based on my experience with Bold 9000 and Torch 9810, I would get the Q10-mainly for the memopad, tasks, calendar. Then again, I am a Blackberry junkie.

Only if I could get a version that does not have ATT's bloatware added on my Blackberry, then I would be much more happy. That said, I hide all the ATT bloatware in one folder since those are such an eye sore.
