    Seriously? Wow, i sold my S3 for a L920 because the TouchWiz caused all kinds of latency/lag issues with the phone...and its not like you can kill the processes, the phone is pretty much dead (ive tried many times to work around it).

    When I saw my bosses S4, i thought it looked to run smoother than my old S3...but then again he had it for only 2 days at that moment.

    For me, my old S3 ran better than the S4 I have now. Certainly, results are subjective based on the user and how they use the device.

    wow...thats just odd...youve got to admit. The more powerful, new updated version runs worse....must be annoying.

    Both r excellent devices. Choosing either is a very personal choice..
    Looks, built, camera, touch, speakers, recording are better with Windows phone..
    Stores can be an issue if you love downloading loads of apps or some niche apps...
    Both give customization but in Windows phone is beautiful n more personal..
    Look at a bigger picture...Windows phone 8.1 is round the corner which should fix the notification, control panel and multitask issues...with these addons the UI becomes comparable, with superior hardware, camera and integration across windows tablets n PC's, windows phone becomes a serious game changer..
    If newly added gimmicks r imp to you then go for S4..
    It is pure speculation that WP 8.1 is around the corner, just as it is speculation as to what features and fixes will be in the final build. While I would never buy an Android device ND the 928 probably has a better camera (for a phone), it absolutely does not otherwise offer superior hardware. It is also pure, arrogant, fanboyism to mention gimmicks with respect to any phone. First, all of the OSs from all of the manufacturers bring gimmicks to the table - WP8 is no different. Second, today's gimmicks are frequently tomorrow's standard features. Dismissing stuff as gimmickry cries out inferiority complex on the part of the person making the claim. .

    Both are excellent phones. However I just exchanged my S4 for my 928.

    They both have similar camera quality, in my opinion the S4 edges out the 928 in daylight photos...but the 928 tramples it in low-light and audio/video quality.

    The S4 feels much thinner, and lighter ... more pocket-able.
    The 928 feels much sturdier in hand and it is difficult to keep in fitted pants with the tight corners. I usually carry to show it off anyways. ;)

    928 has wireless charging built in. I am leaving work with 100% charge every day, because I just place it on charger. It's hassle free.
    S4 requires a 100 dollar kit to use wireless charging.

    Windows Phone and Android both have their perks. Android is great if use a lot of apps, the "latest and greatest" games, and like to have a ton of control over your phone. WP8 is just beautiful, smooth, and has a lot of popular services built right in.

    I mostly use Facebook, Linked In, and Instagram. 2 of those are built right into Windows phone! Instagram now has wonderful third party apps, like instance that do the trick.

    ...You've got a tough decision ahead of you, but either way I am sure you'll be happy.
    No offense but the 928 is not that large. If it is difficult to fit in fitted pants, a person must be wearing spandex.

    i say the Nokia lumia 928. it has an 8.7 mega pixel camera and the s4 has an 8.0 mega pixel camera. the 928 has a bigger flash, image stabilization and very very very good low light. go for the windows phone.
