    Help please is this version of S4 will last for many years like the later 2013 devices Note 3 for ex.? Would I be dissatisfied if I'll buy one? I chose this over the Nexus 5 even if they're the same prices now here bc of the camera I'm a heavy camera user that's why I want an S4 cant really afford S5 atm bc im on tight budget lol. I heard also the S4 will get lollipop so that a plus?

    S4 will get lollipop as Sammobile already leaked a video of Android lollipop running on it. The S4-A is still a powerful device and with MicroSD, replaceable battery and plenty of third party manufacturer accessories - should still last you a good few years. Whilst the screen certainly isn't as nice as the S5 and outdoor viewing in sunlight is not great, it otherwise is a robust phone.

    The S3 got kitkat and I still see people using S3's all over the place. In fact I know someone who just bought one. I see no reason why an S4 wouldn't last a few more years. Especially that model.

    Should be fine, the S4 LTE-A is like a S5 in the S4's body, not much diff between the CPUs used by S4 LTE-A and S5.

    I know two people who just bought regular S4s are very happy, you'll be fine. :)
