So I'm looking to get either I think a note 4 or iPhone 6 when released my partner wants the iPhone 6 and so did I but.......

I currently have a moto g 4g did have a m8 but the moto g does pretty much the same and was big time until the iPhone.

The thing is I like the fact I can get films on my android and watch the football and everything else and I don't think you can on iPhone.

But I do like the feel and look of iPhone also the way apps are on iPhone and they seem to get big games first etc and the emoji things on Facebook etc

And also is the iPhone going to have a much better screen

Any good advice here as I used to be a device hopper a lot as was I with cars but time to slow down and stop wasting money.

The big question here I think is, have you been an iPhone fan for a long while? Me being who I am, I won't ever leave apple because I love their iPhone so much, and although others come out with software and size to compete, apple comes back at them.

Well, you have to admit that Apple took its time coming back with a larger screen (over 4").

One complaint that I continue to say to myself is that I don't believe apple has ever had a poll to see what we want. That's unfortunate.
They do have an official forum and customer feedback is all over the internet. They are well aware of what we want. They slowly stagger features to perfect them and maximize sales and have their reasons for withholding some of the things we don't have. For example, full customization options decrease stability.

It's personal preference and depends on your individual needs. I prefer iPhones, but that doesn't mean it's best for you. You'll need to make list of the features and pros and cons of each and then decide for yourself.

I was just using my sister in law's ip5s and I have no idea how iPhone users deal with not having a back button. I don't remember how I used IOS before I left it. It seems so odd not having a universal way to go back one step.

So if you ask me I would go with the latest Android. I can't wait to get the Note 4.

There's always a way to go back. Once on the home button and I'm back on the home screen. Double tap the home button and I can switch easily between apps. Inside apps, there's usually a back button in the top left. I like multitasking.

you mentioned you watch alot of films/movies if that is your main use then it's a no brainer android running xbmc and you can watch anything your heart desires from movies that have just been released in the theaters the same day. to live tv even live ppv events like boxing and ufc. check out xbmc first and watch a few xbmc videos to make sure you will be able to configure it to your needs after that go get your phone:)

Touch Wood! I have HTC one M8 but nothing but nothing touch the iPhone. It is the Rolls Royce to Android Peugeot.

i take it you already got xbmc on your iphone? if not goto the xbmc site with your iphone and install it and then tell me how bad ass your iphone is. my guess is you won't be able to side-load xbmc with your stock iphone. so much for that nice rolls royce that can't do what you need when you need it.

I switch off between iOS and Android from time to time. If I were to try another Android flagship this year, it would probably be the LG G3. I could just buy the phone ouitright and wait and see what Apple offers in 2015. This is all contingent upon the September 9 keynote, of course.

When I said back I meant one step within an app, such as going back one website link or going back to a previous menu in an app or any number of other examples. With the iPhone it's up to the individual app coder to either have an actual back button in the app or not have one at all and make it a guessing game trying to figure out how to go back one step. The home button and multitasking is not what I'm talking about.

It's funny, because on the day I was at the head of the line for the original iPhone on June 19th, 2007, a guy walked by and gave us a hard time about the new iPhone not having a back button. :D
