Hi! I'm willing to chnage my phone after 2 long years (Ascend Y530) and I was thinking about an iPhone 5S, certanly not new, but there are some shops in my town that sell these devices for 125-170$. Android served my well, and I have managed to find some good Android phones, loke an AllView with 2GB of RAM and a octa core processor.

My needs are: to game well, the OS to look as good as possible (like iOS 6 did, I did do some research and found out that jailbroken devices can get iOS 6's look), the battery to not drop .20%/minute (1% in 5 minutes) and to do some experiments, like the jailbreaking is (iOS) or replace the ROM (Android).

I would suggest you to go with iPhone mainly because of reliability.

Then how would an iPhone 5S do? Is the battery good enough to last me 2 hours of video watching and still have 70-80%? Does it last 1 hour of games (CSR Racing 2, Nitro Nation, CSR Racing, CSR Classics)?

I bought an iPhone 5S a few days ago. 720p video at half screen brightness seems to tax the battery very little, with only 3% disappearing in half an hour.

Wow! That's pretty good! That's my choice, then.

Android is more flexible and user friendly, you can install so many apps as you want on it. I like it and do not wish to change it on iOS

I have used Android tablets and phones since 2013, I think that after doing tons of experiments on my tablets and phones (rooting, modding apps with Lucky Patcher, custom ROMing and such) I know how good Android is.

As for iOS, I have used iOS 3 or 4 on an iPhone 3GS since 2011-2014, but didn't do any true experiments on it. So, I don't really have a lot of experience with it iOS, that's why I'm asking. I was thinking about a Huawei P8 Lite, or some HTC device, but I eventually, after the upper recommendations, ordered an iPhone 5S. I mean, such battery life? My Huawei Ascend Y530, that I'm using to write this, drops at least 10% after 30 minutes of video at lowest brightness possible (night time, understandable why at minimum brightness). So, 3% at 30 minutes of video is extremely low for me and impossible to reach for my Huawei. And I like how the iPhone looks, and it delivers more experiment possibilities. But that don't mean I sell my Huawei, I'll still keep it and do experiments on it, but my day-to-day phone will be the iPhone. I only wish Apple had kept that old-styled home button.

Oh well, I see. I am glad you like your new phone. If the only problem you see in your battery, well for different Androids have different battery life. I have 4500mAh battery on my current Android, and I am more than satisfied! I watch films, videos and it is enough for me. 

As for iPhone design, I fully agree with you, it looks nice!

In any case, I am glad you found a solution.

I know that different Android phones have different battery life. I have had 3 Android tablets since 2013 and they all have had different battery lives. And it's pretty logical as well.

About iPhone's look, the iPhone 8 will destroy everything in the look, so I'll return to Huawei and Vonino phones after the iPhone 5S is useless.

It depends on your need, every system has its advantages and disadvantages.
