I may finally actually be entering the smartphone age, only years after everyone else!
So, the question that everyone else had to answer years ago: should I get an iPhone 5c or a Samsung Galaxy s4?
Major considerations: battery life, how well it acts as a phone, memory (Galaxy wins here!)
Medium considerations: app availability (I think Apple wins this one, plus both my parents and D's are hooked into Apple, plus I'm hooked in through my iPad), camera capability (it seems like the Galaxy has a better camera), size (Apple wins this one)
Completely minor considerations: iTunes (Android wins this one!), picking it up tomorrow vs. waiting for a week (...Galaxy wins here too!)
Anything I'm forgetting?
ETA 1-6 evening: Okay, we split the difference. I got a Galaxy S4, D (who didn't care either way) got the iPhone 5c. As far as I can tell from a couple of hours' worth of playing with them and tech support for my parents (who both got iPhone 5c's), this was absolutely the right choice on both parts, but we shall see.
