Their are only 4 things that stop me from using iPhones.
1. Camera - I really wish they upgraded to a 13+ MP camera, it seems like they have never really done a drastic change with their camera. That's why i love my S5 Active, it's got 16 mega pixels.
2. Storage - Although they do supply 16, 32 and 64 GB storage for iPhones, the price gets higher with each one. On my S5, i pay the same amount as a 16GB iPhone but I can pop a 64GB Micro-SD card in and be good to go.
3. Screen - To me, Apple's "Retina" display isn't that great. I highly prefer the 1080p screen on my S5. It's much more clear and it's so god damn vibrant. Also, i like the bigger screen size, but hopefully Apple will resolve this with this years iPhone 6.
4. Customization - We all know Apple's biggest problem is their restrictive iOS operating system. If maybe icon packs, animations, gestures and launchers were available, iPhone would be my best friend. But that goes for my other 3 reasons.
Megapixels is not everything ..
DxOMark rates the S5 as having the best smartphone camera, but I am very skeptical. IMO that award should go to the Nokia 808
Not a fan of the iPhone / Galaxy S. But I would probably choose the 5S if I had to, as to me it feels like a more premium phone. Has its gimmicks, but they do work! However the Sailfish OS esque ambience of iOS7 clashes with the industrial colors of the 5S, and the reasons you mentioned above make it unappealing for me.
I am currently using a Lumia 925 as my daily driver, and I really cannot see myself switching to either platform. I said the same exact thing about the Palm Pre 3, so who knows..
