I don't think age really matters. Of course, as long as it's not like a 40-80 year old dating a 20 year old, an 11 and 15 year old. Or some other outrageous situation like that.  But, my current boyfriend is a couple years older, so I guess what I say doesn't really count.

Samsung all the way. Android for me has everything that Apple has to offer, and these ideas were implemented into Android before Apple. In my opinion for Apple, you're buying the brand. With Samsung, you're buying Android technology and innovation.
