Apple

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.

On the precision touch screen issue, I also had quite the opposite experience with iOS vs Android. On my iPhone 4 i can easily hit very small links on a zoomed out webpage and open the right one. On my wife's Nexus 4 I often get the little "mini-zoom" window on a link even though it is much bigger to start with, but Chrome still can't figure out which link I meant to press.

I think iOS and Android have different algorithms for processing touches so it is likely just a matter of getting used to it.
