My advice: Get an Android phone. I got an HTC One, the "most carefully crafted, beautiful phone in history". Yea, right. Besides Android being noticeably slower on a quad-core 1.7GHz (or whatever it is) and 2GB of RAM than my iPhone 5 with 1GB of RAM and a DUAL-core chip, there were dead pixels after using the thing for a measly 2 months. I wasn't really using it as a replacement for my iPhone. I just wanted to try out what I thought might be a bigger-and-therefore-better screen. Yea, what a disappointment. Can't wait for my DUAL-core 5s, which retains 1GB of RAM, except it's DDR3, so it'll fly in the sky, baby! Oh, and to clear up any confusion about 64-bit, it's the OS that has to be 64-bit, and guess what: iOS 7 on the 5s, along with all of Apple's own apps...all 64-bit. :-P The reality is that 64-bit DOES make a big difference besides the addressable (4GB) of RAM, but the OS has to be 64-bit as well as the apps used. And Apple developers will waste no time, if 64-bit will help their apps. Anyway, yea, get an Android phone is my advice. You'll come running back so fast...and think of the benefits: You won't have to wonder which one's the better OS anymore! That'll be awesome, right? Bro? Brosees?

How is android far ahead! Not to say you are wrong but sure ios 7 is newer look maybe that's why battery life is dropping but their is a way to downgrade by restoring on iTunes with USB cable!

Would jailbreak and whatever android does to work like jailbreak both work together for that to happen, or just remove the entire circuits from s(hit) 4 then move it to iPhone?
