I buy cheap second hand ipods from Ebay and put them in my various vehicles and sync them all with my itunes account.
It used to be important for me to have all 4200 tunes shareable across all devices including the phone but not now.
After having a 3, a 3s, a 4 , a 4s and a 5, I changed to a Galaxy 4s I found it was cheaper to buy cheapo ipods and use the phone for .. hey .. phoning
... cos I kept having to buy 64GB phones ..
for the 64gb 5s they now want £700
stroll on !
The 4s was the best of the bunch the 5 was better but more of a 4s ..s
Samsung havent cracked it either their o/s is buggy and not faultless like ios
The 1080p display of the samsung and its display size are awesome
as is the camera, but its got a lot of other gimmiky crap in it, so Im toying with going back to my '5'as a good solid reliable blower
But dont forget this ! ... as everyone clamours for the 5s .... if you went and spent the big bucks ... everyone else is going to get ios7 along with you (or the newer iphones anyway) and get their own 'iphone upgrade'
wont have fingerprint recognition but a whole lot of stuff that 'will' be in the latest gear
The Sony is a nice phone although Ive never owned one so cant comment .. the gadget freaks seem to think the HTC one is top of the heap at the moment followed by the S4 and the Sony
