    Best way to get the opinion. What do you guys think, what should I buy? I had Z1 compact and it was awesome. I don't like Androids stuttering, app crashes and such. I believe that is better handled on iOS. I also have to mention that I don't like big phones so, only 5s comes to play, not iPhone 6. Waaaaay too big for me. I really can't decide on what to buy and it's only between these two.

    In short - what phone/system is better and why?

    Here are the specs: http://www.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?idPhone1=6538&idPhone2=5685

    I had a Z1 and a Z3, they are both the same. My girlfriend had a 5s, and like all iPhones, it was shit.

    I have a Samsung s6 edge now which is better than any of them.

    Stay away from z3, overheats like crazy when you run multiple apps at a time.

    That's what I'm thinking. iPhone 5S is 2013 :(

    Never had one so can't tell.

    Samsung is out of the question. Don't like them. Why are iPhone shit?

    Audi :D

    Z1 compact can sometimes heat like crazy as well, yeah.

    I just don't like iPhones. My Z3 was best for battery life. My S6 has a good battery life too. iPhones tend to have a shit battery life.

    I personally prefer Android and you would most likely get annoyed switching to an iPhone.

    Well don't think. Android has the same features IPhone might give you. Unless you are fan of phones that are not the best ito hardware, but expensive as fuck, go for the best android hardware you can get. lol.. Now I am gonaa get bashed... I kw a lot of people love iPhones over here :D

    UI is ugly haha and not fan of anything Samsung makes tbh.

    Yes, iPhone 5S does have a lot worse batter than Z3 compact. I guess I'll go with Z3 C.

    Z3 C it is!

    Yeah, I guess you're right. A lot of cool things to do with Android.

    Thanks for the help guys. Just watched some videos about home automation and customizing so I will go with Z3 Compact and Android. Thanks!

    Screw both (especially the overpriced shit from Apple) and get a Samsung Galaxy or Note - best decision you will ever make!

    I have SONY Z2


    After 1 years and half, my screen turn into problem (ghost touch), and laggy.

    Need to buy new phone ASAP! But will wait for new SONY Z4/Z5 coming in late 2015

    Wanna try iphone, but thinking about file transfer un-friendly between phone and PC. Or other android devices.

    Make me change my mind.

    I'd go with the iPhone. I had the 3GS for years and it was still working perfectly but couldn't download ios 7 compatible apps anymore so got the 5s (I didn't go for the iPhone 6 for the same reason as you, not a fan of the bigger size). I'm hoping one of the next iPhones will bring out a 'mini' version.

    A friend has the HTC One M9 and I really like it, I need a new phone anyway. Definitely not an iPhone, decisions decisions. I think AT&T has me eligible for an upgrade soon, it's between the M9 and there's something else they're offering that costs like $900 I think it's from Samsung.

    I would go for a LG G4. Design wise, its really cool
    I've used most of the smartphones and am thinking to go back to old school phones where it only lets me text and call. I don't feel productive using a smartphone.
