Decisions Decisions


So I have a big decision to make this month: I'm getting a new phone!


I currently have an iPhone 4 and though I quite like it, it's definitely time for a new one. That said, I'm thinking beyond Apple. I'm a huge Apple fangirl - I have a Macbook Pro, an iPad and Apple TV so of course my first thought was to get one of the iPhone 5's, but which one? 5s or 5c? I know that the 5c is essentially just the iPhone 5 with colorful options. BUT I've never had the iPhone 5 so any upgrade would be a good one. Besides I'm not sure I really need all the new options that the 5s offers. However, my friend made the argument that getting the current best would mean I wouldn't be too far behind the next time I upgrade, plus if I'm going to spend money anyway, isn't it better to go big or go home?

On the other hand, I've been hearing amazing things about Samsung's Galaxy series. The decision here is between the Note 3 or the S4. While the Galaxy series have better cameras than my iPhone 4 (actually, the camera on my iPhone 4 is broken so that's why I don't have my Instagram for this blog set up yet) and supposedly the camera produces sharper pictures than the iPhones, I'm not sure which would better my needs. I'm leaning more towards the Note 3 as it would be so helpful with blogging and work (the bigger screen helps). However the S4 is just as good. And besides, I don't really watch movies or videos that much on my phone so the bigger screen the Note 3 offers isn't that big a game changer. Both of these screens are still bigger than what I'm used to.

What would you guys decide? Do you have any of these phones? How do you like them? Let me know!

  1. My boyfriend has the Galaxy S3 and he loves it! I have the Nexus 4 and it's really great too! I'm not really an Apple person - I personally find the brand overpriced for what you get.

  3. No question Galaxy Note 3. If you must stick with Apple iPhone 5s.

    1. Haha I love the idea of the Note 3 but it's so big - I'll look like I'm talking into an Etch-a-Sketch.
      Although I'm sure it would be perfect for my blogging needs. Hmmm...

  5. I have the Samsung galaxy, only the s3, and I love it. Such a great phone :) I just never liked the iphones. But if you own everything else apple, it makes sense to keep buying apple stuff so you know it all works together easily.
