I currently own a Samsung Galaxy Ace, and I would love to get a new phone. This is my second android, and Im really considering getting an iPhone 4s or 5c. I would like to know the benefits of changing to an iPhone.

1. Warranty. Hands down the best. AppleCare+ in particular is excellent, $100 down gives you 2 years coverage and physical/water damage included. $79 gets you a brand new iPhone over the counter up to 2 times.

2. Detail, craftsmanship. iPhones have high build quality and great attention to detail.

3. If you're invested in the Appleverse, everything plays nicely with each other.

As far as software, that leaves a bit to be desired. The app support is excellent and there's finally quick toggles available, but I find a lot more customization and features in Android that I would miss using an iOS device. SwiftKey, in particular.

Plus the screens aren't as big, and for the majority of Web browsing, games playing, email writing smartphone users, they adjust to the extra size of most droids quickly.

Also, iPhones are generally expensive and rarely get sales or gift card offers.

It's up to you, really, if it's the right choice to make.

You'll have a plethora of choices when it comes to a case for it.

Simplicity and a fast phone.

Some androids may be fast according to their specs, but real life use shows otherwise. Androids will always slow down.

Getting an Apple allows you to show your uniqueness to the world and demonstrate that you walk to the beat of a different drum. It is a symbol that you do not follow the crowd and like to do things your own way... you are a non-conformist.

... just like everyone else.
