I think I deserve to win the Samsung Galaxy S5 from Virgin Media because for the first time, my loyalty to iOS has begun to waver. I’ve been an iPhone user from day one, in fact, it still is the only smartphone I’ve ever owned. Some flirted with Blackberry when it was the default, smart choice for on-the-go email and private messaging, while others moved to Android early on out of principle - it’s a more open ecosystem and there are plenty of hardware options to choose from.
I’m still using my iPhone4 and not because I haven’t been able to upgrade - but because with every iteration, I’ve thought to myself ‘Is this life-changing?’ and the answer has been ‘No, wait for the next one’. Sure, things are more sluggish than they used to be and I find myself getting a little hot under the collar when something takes seconds longer than in my mind it should. Credit to Samsung, they put their full weight behind catching up with Apple and now I feel like they have them on the run. You only need to take a cursory glance at some of the documents/emails disclosed in the latest Apple-Samsung court battle to glean as much.
Why do I deserve the S5? I’m tired of waiting ‘for the next one’ and want to be excited again when I wake up to my phone (it’s my alarm clock - is that sad?) and look at it over 160 times a day. It’s now at the cutting edge, where I’d like to be.
