Samsung

It's the leader in the world.

I-Phone is always playing catch-up to Samsung

I don't follow the hype.

I have an iPhone 6 Plus and am in love with it. One of,the reasons I stick with Apple is all my devises sync--including my Apple TV. I really like the syncing. Whenever I have need to call Apple--and it has been quite rare, they are super friendly and very easy to understand stand. I'm staying with Apple. Husband has Windows 7 main computer-- seems to always have problems.

Have a Samsung and seriously dislike it. Have from day one. Think I need some lessons on how to use it.

DW has Samsung S 5, she loves it.

I just recently (last week) traded in my Android for an iPhone 6. My children who all have iPhones were after me to get an iPhone. I have had an iPad for quite a while and find the iPhone to be alike and thus am able to use the new iPhone without and learning phase.

So far I am quite contend with the iPhone 6.

iPhone for us. We have a Mac Book Pro, two iPads and two iPhones. We also have the Apple wireless router and extender. It all works flawlessly and we have never had a malfunction or lost any data.

I am a confirmed Windows PC user at home. However, after a lot of thought and research, I picked the iPhone (4S and now 5S) It is primarily used as a phone, not a multimedia entertainment device. I also use it for email retrieval, web surfing, GPS and some utility & recreational aps. I wanted it to be reliable and simple to use. The Android and windows operating systems seemed to take more effort and learning than I wanted to do. Only downside so far is that is won't play Windows Media File videos that are on some of the web sites.

I had the I-Phone 5s luckily for me my daughter lost hers and I gave her mine. She is paying for 2 phones now. I went to Galaxy 5 and have never looked back. Much preferred by me.

Another reason I have the Samsung is I also have the Galaxy note tablet & twoo Samsung smart TV's. They all talk to each other(sync) easily.

I just recently purchased a Samsung Note 4 after many years of not having a smart phone. The reason I went with Samsung instead of the Iphone is because I didn't want to deal with the Apple app store. It's a pain in the neck to have to enter your username and password every time you want to go to the store. I have an ipad so am used to the Apple system. Also I have no problem with using the Samsung.

I have had a Samsung Galaxy (first the S2 and now the S4) for about 3 years. Like it a lot. One of my sisters is a confirmed iPhone user for several years now, and she upgraded to the iPhone 6 a few months ago. One of the reasons I picked the Samsung Galaxy was based on the recommendations of TOTV members about 3 years ago. Samsung Galaxy works for me.

I enjoy my iPhone, iPad, Mac book, ipod. Started with android phone, but when it went belly up so badly that even the techs at the Verizon store were beyond stumped, I switched to Apple. My kids and grandkids had Apple iPods and phones. Facetime is great, all devices sync and all work essentially the same, easily.....
