What to buy, Apple-iPhone5-iOS OR Samsung-GalaxyS4-Android

I am a system administrator and I need to get a new mobile phone to get downtime warnings and such when I am not in front of my computer.
I am not much of a mobile user, so please bear with me.
I currently have an iPhone 3G (recently reset to factory settings to no avail) but I believe it's time to switch for a couple of reasons:
-Mobile phone "switch off" button doesn't work anymore
-Opening any website results in Safari crashing
-Opening "app", "messages", "phone" response is slow
-Problem reading SIM from time to time
-I can't install any app, I get "this app requires a new iOS version"
I tried to upgrade iOS in the past but it became crazy slow and went back immediately.
I know in recent years mobile devices processors etc. have been improved a lot (I have been as slow as Intel to realize it).
I have been disappointed by the discovery I can't install ANY application anymore, I don't want to switch for any such reason in the future (I am not a buy for the sake of buying).
The most important things for me are:
-performance and stability (OS and browser)
-can install any app, especially ssh apps now as well as in the future
-price of course
Things I will use are only "Messages", "Phone", Safari and SSH.
If you want to recommend another product feel free to do so.
For example looking at this figures
HTC One seems to be a good horse too.
Your hopeless smartphone noob Jo.
