    Just went to the phone store and played with the galaxy s4 first thing I noticed was how good it felt in my hand compared to the s3 and how premium it felt I was surprised the plastic feels great in hand....the screen pops,I held it next to the HTC one which was little bit sharper and brighter but the s4 size is better for me....the camera and its features is of the charts....my friend works for sprint he will have 10 of each color tomorrow... He is holding 1 for me I can't wait I left the store excited the phone in black looks way better than it files in white....

    I was dead set on getting the One when it came out. Still a great feeling phone. Right now on a Gnex on Tmo. All works well but I miss having an ext sd card.

    Went to the ATT store and played with the S4. Was shocked as to how light this phone is. This definitely will sell boatloads. Was never a big fan of touch wiz but this iteration was more tolerable. Knowing I can put my 64gb sd card in there is a definite plus.

    So here I am wondering WTF am I going to do. Granted its a good place to be.

    Why? Interested because I have a iPhone 5 and thinking of jumping ship but not sure because the camera on the 5 is better since the reviews say so and the screen is also but I like the bigger size but hate that it's a plastic phone seems cheap.

    The camera and screen on the S4 are better than the iPhone 5. The iPhone 5's camera is a little better and in low light and that's it. The screen? Not even close. Size, PPI, resolution, versatility, and saturation all go to the S4. The IPS is marginally better in direct sunlight and the whites are brighter on the 5.

    You probably have a case on your iPhone and will put one on the S4 so that completely negates the cheap argument. As for pics, the cameras are very comparable. With more MP and more native editing tools and modes the S4 is far more versatile. And if you're like most people and take the pics and mostly view and show them off on the phone itself then the S4 blows away the iPhone due to its size and saturation. Cnet has a great analysis of the screens and the s4 holds its own against the iPhone.

    You need to to some more reading. Yes, some say it's a plastic phone but yet when they actually hold a working model.....their foot is on their mouth. Don't get me wrong - there will always be Apple die hards and nothing wrong with that. I'm saying to give it a try - I'm sure you'll be pleasantly surprised. In my opinion, the S4 blows away the Iphone 5.

    Galaxy S4 Display Technology Shoot-Out
    I may be replacing my Note 2 with an S4 whenever Verizon decides to get them in but would prefer an HTC One. I just can't stomach the though of going back to AT&T and the other carriers are even further from Verizon coverage.
    I haven't seen an S4 yet in person but at least everyone says the buttons are noticeably better.

    The camera and screen on the S4 are better than the iPhone 5. The iPhone 5's camera is a little better and in low light and that's it. The screen? Not even close. Size, PPI, resolution, versatility, and saturation all go to the S4. The IPS is marginally better in direct sunlight and the whites are brighter on the 5.

    It does feel alot better but the screen is still blown out and the S 4 lags. Samsung needs to dial back the Touchwiz.

    No lag on mine and it's still updating and downloading in the background. In fact, this thing flies.

    ......but hate that it's a plastic phone seems cheap.

    Plastic has really gotten a bad rap and thats a shame. For starters, the aluminum bezel looks like real brushed metal, the plastic doesn't feel like plastic-y AT ALL, due to the thinness & squared off edges the phone is soooo 100% easier to hold and feels much better in the hand than all previous Samsungs. Trust me, if you want to "get over the cheap plastic opinion of the SGS4, go hold one, and if possible, one that isn't attached to that bulky holder. World of difference from "perception to reality", i promise u that,,,

    Then, slap one of those new S View Flip Covers on it and you will be the envy of the neighborhood, plastic be danged!

    I have one, it feels cheap and flimsy but no different than the S3 we all loved...I personally think the HTC "feels" nicer and better built. I still like my S4 but I'm gonna be delusional and be a fanboi about it, the thing feels cheap as hell.

    I went to AT&T this morning first thing to play with S4. I feels great in the hand. super light, look great, really liked it.
    But the phone right next to it was the HTC One. I pulled up apple.com and google.com because both are Very white sites.
    As much as I LOVED the S4 after touching it and playing with it for a few minutes, I can't stand the screen. WHITE IS NOT WHITE on it.
    Reminds me of the old Clorox commercials, Which one is Whiter? Samsung can NOT render a TRUE white. when you hold the HTC One or iPhone up next to the S4, you have to be color blind to think samsung color is correct.
    Sorry. I'm not bashing samsung as being crappy, the phone is amazing. The screen color accuracy, not there. It has popping colors and great blacks. It can not do WHITE.

    As I recall the power save mode is set to ON by default with the in store display Galaxy's,, when the power save mode is ON whites do not look white, they look dingy like dirty laundry,,,,when I turn the power saver mode OFF on my Note 2 the Apple website is very very white,,, same thing with the Google home page.

    As a past iphone owner I would agree that the whites are better on the iPhone 5 than the Galaxy's,,, but they aren't that much better as long as you have the Galaxy power save mode set to OFF.

    I'm willing to bet the GS4 you checked out at ATT had the power save mode set to ON as that will make whites look bad on any Galaxy phone.

    As far as color accuracy, changing the color modes of the Galaxy will greatly change the way colors look,,,,the Dynamic, Standard, Natural, and Movie color modes all change the colors and saturation,,,, I think the in store Galaxy's are set to Dynamic by default.

    sometime's the most "accurate' colors isn't what we want......I personally love the colors that pop out and stimulates your eyes...almost better than real life
