I got impatient waiting for any 32gb S4 to arrive and went to the AT&T store to get a Black 16gb. They didn't have any in black or white, so I ordered a black one anyway and have to pick up in store around a week. I played around with a bunch of phones for around 45min before I purchased the S4. Playing with the S4, my initial impression was the opposite of what I've mostly read in this forum. While messing with the black version and the white version, I haven't experienced any lag whatsoever on the two S4s, and that's the first thing I was testing for after reading so many posts about it. Samsung said it would have a slightly different feel in the hand from the S3, but it doesn't. It just feels basically the same. Silly me for thinking I was going to feel some texture on the back. Playing with the HTC One, my initial impression was a bit disappointing compared to the praise it has gotten. It doesn't feel as premium in the hand as the iPhone. Not that I really give a damn about that, but that's the main reason for the attention it's recieved. It also feels more delicate than other phones, like it can dent or bend easy. Not saying that's the case, but it just feels that way to me. The front speakers were also less than what I thought it would be. Sound was good, but wasn't much better than most recent phones. Felt like the real difference was the sound coming from the front rather than the sound itself. Also played around with the Lumia 920, Optimus G Pro, and the HTC 8X. The Lumia 920 is a very nice phone. If there was better development for it or wasn't so lock down, and more apps, then I would seriously consider the 920. I would actually choose it over the iPhone(without jailbreak). The HTC 8X looked and felt awkward. It felt like a bootleg WP for lack of better words. The Optimus G Pro seemed pretty solid too and was noticeably smaller than the Note 2. I didn't realized it was the same 5.5 screen size until I looked at the description. Just thought I'd share my initial impressions. Emphasis on initial.
