iPhone 6 or Galaxy s5?

So my cell phone plan is up, I'm eligible for a new phone. I have an iPhone 5 now and I am tossing up between an iPhone 6 or a Samsung Galaxy s5..... Opinions?

I went to the Galaxy. I like the Camera and the phone is waterproof. For me dust / waterproof sealed the deal.

I always though Maryann was cuter. Ginger was too flashy for my taste.

I went from an IPhone to a Galaxy about 2 years ago. Both are good phones. The Galaxy edges the iPhone out on software features but most are gimmicky and rarely used. What I like most about the Galaxy is the ability to change the battery and add a memory card.

But I also have an iMac and an iPad. I miss how everything I downloaded on one would end up on all three and all the pictures I took with the phone automatically transfer to my tablet and desktop. For that reason only my next phone will probably be an iPhone. Otherwise I'd stay with Samsung.

I swapped my IPhone 5 for a Samsung Galaxy S5 Active. I don't hate the phone, but I wish I had stayed with the IPhone and gotten the IPhone 6. The Galaxy is a nice phone, but has a lot of features that are either unused or gimmicky. I also find that the IPhone is easier to use. I'll be switching back when I'm eligible for an upgrade.

I switched from iPhone to Samsung with an S3. I didn't want to pay the Apple premium for internal storage and replaceable battery. I upgraded to S5, like the waterproof and camera, added 64 GB card and usb2go cable (read thumb drives). Don't care to use heart rate and fingerprint scans. Like that I can control more on my phone than iPhone, at a lower cost

I have a Nexus 5 and iPhone 6+ -- both do the job.

Bought a new 5s over the 6, loved my 4 and knew the 5 was allot better yet. I have had numerous droids, I much prefer the iPhone.
