    Can you imagine how much TMo could dominate if they didn't have terrible service outside of the major markets? As it is, I'm still waiting for the Verizon s4...

    Why is it always that when a phone comes out, they wait till later to release better ones when people already purchased them

    ... Jerks.

    Seriously. This will make me angry if it's true. The S4 with stock 4.2/4.3 would be my dream phone.

    It would also beg the question of if Samsung could release an update for interested users that would bring stock Android to their preexisting handsets.

    I need some proof of this. Not speculation. Google can't hate Samsung, they've put Android in SO MANY faces. Until Samsung stops using Google services I don't see them being anything but friends.

    Not sure if they necessarily hate each other, but Samsung clearly has disdain for Google. Otherwise they wouldn't be replicating every google service with their proprietary versions. A company that is happy with their relationship does not do that.

    Hate is a strong word. The relationship between the two is what you can call, strained. This is nothing new.

    I think its more or so that Samsung wants to have more control over their products, when it comes to updates, functionality, etc, without having to abide by the rules of Google and Android...they want freedom to do what they want on their own products

    I don't think Samsung and Google hate each other, otherwise Samsung probably would have not kept Android or Google services on their phone

    Hey I'm very new to android (just got my GS4 today :P, coming from iOS), but unless there are major hardware changes it would be likely non google edition (GE) phones would be able to use the ROM from the GE version wouldn't it?

    Yes, but most likely would have to root. If this is the case though, I will fart then DL it immediately for installation. I like TW but it can get annoying at times.

    I just enjoy all the unfounded speculation regarding Google's relationship with Samsung.

    Have you seen sundar pichai's interview? He was praising samsung and telling the interviewer how its a global leader when it comes to hardware. Google and Samsung perfectly complete each other and I dont see something ruining that relationship for a long time. Ofc, they are gonna advertise their own features because its unique to their phone, the stuff that sets it apart from other android phones and the iphone. I dont think its something personal against google.
