    Pretty impressive with Touch Wiz features. I love the AMOLED screen. I bought her the pink SView case. All cheap fake leather. How Samsung make premium phone with sub par build needs to dramatically change for the next line up. But I actually like the phone after messing with it. Used and app to load her text and Google made everything else much easier. Glad WP improved on this cause it was much needed. Sense is much much lighter than Touch Wiz. I like both of these. I wish we waited for the G3 for her but that would had been too much phone. S5 already is.

    Very nice phone overall.

    I have stated my reason in the previous thread I posted about me buying myself the HTC One M8. It's not Android over WP cause anyone who knows me on here knows I prefer WP OS over Android. My wife however is a droid user and the apps she use simply just aren't there. Same with me. I've taken a break from WP until WP comes to better light. I've been enjoying the better apps using Android again after 2 years.

    As for my wife she wanted the S5. I bought her the S5. If she wants a WP I'll buy her a WP. When she's ready, I'll advise her but until then, her choice is not up for me to debate.

    After playing with it. I like it.

    i am just curious. I am a heavy user of Apple products. When I have iOS questions I post on imoore.

    Why post this on WP forums?

    Whats the agenda?

    No more questions. Fair enough?
    It doesn't sound like the OP has any agenda (or any questions). I've seen posts mentioning getting Windows Phones on Android Central, getting Androids on iMore, etc. The way I see it is that it might be more beneficial to post a question about a device or platform in the site forums for that device/platform, and I've already provided links when people have specific questions (for example, in one thread on the iMore forums, someone asked about the 'do not disturb' aka 'blocking mode' on the SGS5; I posted the link to the Android Central tip). However, if there are no questions, and someone just mentions a new device acquired, the post really could belong on any of the Mobile Nations' forum sites.

    I don't have questions. I post on two forums. I post here cause compare the two OS and favor Windows. So naturally I post here. As I've said read my previous thread

    Nah no games. I just set it up for her. I liked the screen being closer to the 1520.

    I also bought a HTC One M8 to use for now. I do love my Lumia 1520. But I am not going to change banks because the bank I have been with for years and am very happy with, doesn't have a WP app. (It has informed their tech team, but that may never come to pass. But then who knows, they just got the Android, iOS and Mobile page a couple months ago)

    Also, I keep bothering Quicken to get a WP app, that isn't getting me very far either. And WP does not have a banking app that will sync with the cloud that I can actually use on my laptop. Where with Quicken, whatever I enter on my phone, sync's with the app on my laptop and the other way too.

    I love the 1520, but it will now become my backup phone, where the M8 will be my daily driver. And I will keep emailing, tweeting to the companies I want a WP app, to keep it in their minds. So apps are a big thing with those who return to Android/iOS and for those who don't want to come to WP. Until MS is on even playing ground in the apps department, it will never grow enough to be a threat to the other two. It is growing at a faster pace, but not fast enough.

    I feel you OP. I had to go back to Droid after ComiXology pulled out on WP8...I need my comics. I was holding on for the longest to come back, but I just put my beloved Yellow Lumia 920 up for auction. I will miss her. I'm going to pick up the LG G3 and SP3 and hope to be able to come back to WP sometime next year.

    Banking app that you can use on the cloud and monitor all your accounts and things.. I use Mint to watch my bank accounts on windows phone and its on PC as well because its made by INTUIT, a trusted company. Have you tried Mint?

    What colour S5 did she get? I like the gold one.

    Here's a picture of an S5 at an AT&T store. I installed the WPCentral app from Google Play.

    I can think of so many reasons. I bought my mom a Lumia 925 and if only knew I could have got a moto g for less I would have got that instead. The apps on android are a lot better and they don't lag like they do on Windows phone. Windows phone loads a lot while on android everything seems instant.

    Please people, seriously STOP going to the ANDROID section if the forum and being rude? Its uncalled for. Secondly, how did your wife make the choice between the GS5 and the One M8? My fiance wanted the GS5 because of the gimmicks. I would have convinced her to wait for the G3 though. Has a larger screen and basically same profile size as the S5. My Fiance got the GS5 when the G3 was still rumored/just announced, so she never had the chance to think about it. That's going to be my next phone! Just waiting for a release date.

    Mint doesn't work for me. I don't want to monitor, I want to deposit checks, I want a check register that syncs with my laptop, and doesn't require a month cost to have things like check numbers, reminders and budgets. I downloaded and tried just about every app here. I will be back to WP when those two things have been created on WP. I will miss the 6" screen and the great camera.
