Still, iOS is still reasonably pretty, superbly easy to use and pretty practical as long as you have less than 100 apps installed.
Samsung has "enriched" the Samsung Galaxy S4 with the custom TouchWiz UI. This is the umbrella name for all variants of Samsung’s Android interface, but it’s only top dogs like the Galaxy S4 that get absolutely all of the swish new features.
The most headline-grabbing of them relate to eye-detection tech. For example, videos will stop when you look away from the screen and, as with the Samsung Galaxy S3, you can set the backlight to stay on while you’re looking at the screen.
You’ll get no such frivolous extras with an iPhone 5, although some of you may class such things as gimmicky trash anyway.
