Ive had an android ever since the first one was released in the US. For me, its time for a change, so no more android.

Ive never been a huge apple fan but they do seem to work well based on others experiences. The lumia seems to be a much better phone, really not even close to me. But, apple is known to be pretty stable and has great support.

So, why should i get the 5? or should i get the lumia?
The apps. I think the Apple App Store is the largest of all of them. Yeah, there's a ton of crappy apps, but there are also a ton of good ones. Plus, since there will be nearly half a billion iOS devices sold by the end of next year, developers are concentrating on that platform.

How does the lumia seems to be a much better phone? Specs means nothing. The iPhone 5 trounced the stock Galaxy S3 in benchmarks, even though on paper it has half as many cores and a slower clock speed.

The build quality on the iPhone is generally much better than other phones, and the support is better too.
