I am jealous of the screen size of the Samsung Galaxy S5. Thanks dabrown!

I'm not too keen on big screens myself, or the bloatware Samsung pushes. It really does boil down to opinion between the two.

What phone are you using now? I have an iPhone 5S. I will get the next generation iPhone that will be announced on September 9. I jailbreak my older iPhones at times for the fun of learning what Jay and Cydia come up with. Many of the ideas found on the iPhones and iOSs seem to come from developers from Cydia. I also like the idea of digging inside the OS and looking where Apple places items inside of the OS.

I should be able to put the alleged 4.7" iPhone in my front pocket, the alleged 5.5" iPhone, I am not sure.

I have a Motox great little phone, and all of Motorola's added value packages are segregated into apps, so I can choose to disable them. The phone's fast and dirt cheap, $300 unlocked and $25/unlimited with republic wireless.

Even without 'rooting' Android it offers a level of custom features that is better than a jail broken iPhone (I've owned a jail broken 4s). Its not just changing the fonts or icons, the 'tasker' app gives you complete control of your phone, including its sensors, GPS ext. For example, in this video I've set up a popup notification that's activated by a geofence: Ingress Popup (Android Tasker):


So with a stock phone, I can access and manipulate most of the sensors and OS services. When I had an iPhone I felt like I was borrowing apples code (which essentially is what your doing according to their EUA). Android is mostly open sourced, so I don't feel like a criminal when I delve into their code.

Cool video about Geo-fencing. I use Geo-fencing at four different locations reminding me to do certain things when I get there.
