I do have one major grip with my iPhone 5s. Well, more specifically how so much hinges on iCloud. Problem is, 5GB really isn't a lot and I don't fancy shelling out for more storage, so I'm bombarded with warnings telling me my storage is full... I guess I should just bite the bullet and get more storage!

Or use iTunes to back your stuff up to a laptop/PC you own.

I do like and hate my Galaxy S4.
I like it because it's still a decent phone, despite it being quite old (released back in 2013).
I hate it because:
* Only 16 GB storage, only ~ 9GB of which is user accessible and which can't be expanded without using hacks and third party ROMs.
* no stock Android 6.0 (have to resort to using CM13, which isn't completely stable)

In my opinion a lot of phones are already too big (though they need to be to be legible)... and adding a case to it just makes it larger. So I don't use cases.

Plus my slide phone would need a very strange case...

I think this is what I'll do, yeah, but it's just a shame to have to delete stuff from my actual phone. I quite like having access to everything, but oh well!

That's what happens when you deal with Apple. You have to do it their way.
I use Dropbox and micro SD cards with my Androids.

Ain't that the truth. That said, I do prefer iOS, on a personal level. I guess that's why I persevere.

Figured i would dig up this necro'd thread because i hate the POS blackberry bold i have to use while i find parts for my Moto G (630+lbs landing on it at -20f finally did in the screen). This thing is useless! i can't use USB tethering so my network has no internet, while any computer connected to the BB has internet (why is it that you use PPP for USB when RNDIS has been standard for around 2 decades? Blackberry? No Wonder you are sinking.) Only half of my contacts imported correctly. Oh, and you can't import from SD card. Why oh why can't i update and manage certificates? No useful tools like SSH/TELNET to be found. I can't even poke around the system, so i might as well not even own the device! Internet radio don't work on it, so no Noise.fm, no repeaters, no echolink, nothing! The browser is damn near useless! God i hate this thing! Want to send a text? OK, but the god damned receiving party's number is converted to blackberries god awful keyboard layout! Northern Colorado's area code is now CZ0! Fuck me! If my N97 didn't have a bad screen i would be using it instead! /rant

OH MY GOD, MAN! Keep calm! Just breathe, in and out. I guess you'll have to actually (shudder) talk to people.

You know, my motorola razr is pretty reliable.
