Man Gets Galaxy S5, is 'Blown Away' By What He Was Missing on iPhone

July 22, 2014 by

Business Insider contributor Jim Edwards recently switched from an iPhone 5 to a Galaxy S5 and was beyond pleased with the change.

"I had no idea what I've been missing," he wrote (July 19). Edwards focuses mostly on the difference in size between the two devices, saying the GS5 makes a "huge difference" in terms of user experience, "especially for videos and photos."

Edwards extols the GS5's larger size as a better device for all media, including Instagram and Facebook. He also praises it as being a better device for working remotely upon. "Typing and email on the Galaxy are amazing," he says.

As for fears in transferring all your iTunes content over to an Android device? "Baseless," he scoffs. "There are a ton of apps to do it for you (I used "Easy Phone Tunes") and Google Music can do it via the cloud."

Near the end, Edwards offers up a few of what he considers flaws to the GS5, which is commendable and gives his stance a bit more objectivity. Things like: the phone coming with an older version of Android, settings being diffficult to learn, "super-aggressive" autocorrect, invasive Google integrations throughout, and slower machine response times.

Overall, Edwards' article is a really long-winded way of saying he likes having a bigger phone. It will be interesting to see what he thinks when Apple releases what is rumored to be a larger iPhone 6.
