Since my contract renewal was up, I had the option to renew it and buy a new phone alongside with it. Since I have an unofficial policy of never buying into the same platform twice in a row, and because it has been a long time since I bought something from Cupertino, I decided to go with the newest iPhone, the 5S. I'm planning on a more thorough review sometime later this year after more thorough use, but here are a few short first impressions.

I've actually been on the lookout for a high-end Android phone with a screen closer to the size of the iPhone 5/5s. ;)

The closest match in screen size I've tried is the Galaxy S4 Mini -- however it's a bit underpowered (much lower resolution screen, slower processor, less memory etc compared to the flagship S4 model), and I just don't like the Samsung-customized interface.

The Nexus 4 is my main Android phone still because it's just so pleasant to use, but it's too huge for my taste. Nexus 5 will be very slightly larger, which continues to irk me, but of course I'm buying one anyway for the LTE. ;)
