Since it looks like Apple won't have a really new phone for well over a year, I decided to try the Galaxy S4. I currently have an Iphone 5. Previous phones were Ip4, Galaxy S3, Droid X. So I am familiar with Android. I had mentally prepared to just play with it for the 14 days and then return it to Verizon for the restocking fee. Now I have a problem; I REALLY like the S4! The screen is gorgeous. I got a Class 10 32GB MicroSD for $25 at Best Buy. Yes it does have bloatware but I just disabled stuff. I went into developer options and disabled the animations so I have no lag or stutter. This is a very fast phone. I especially like the keyboard. I use Google Voice input a lot and it is extremely accurate. I put a lot of the same or similar apps on the phone. I had to subscribe to Visual Voice Mail ($2.99) to get a similar voice mail playback as the Ip5. The camera is quite good, as good or even better than the IP5. I installed LightFlow and the custom notifications, with different LED lighting for notifications is great. The S3 I previously had was intermittent in bluetooth connecting to my car. This S4 is rock solid. It downloaded the phone book and it works perfectly. I haven't done a solid battery check, but it looks good so far. My only problem is that my wife has an Ip4s, and after playing with my S4, she wants one!!!
