    Default After the initial excitement of the S4, do you still use any of its "features"?

    I used the features on my s4 for about a month. Now I run action launcher and don't use a single one outside of the camera. Not smart this, or air that. Nothing. They seem to get in the way more than they help. I love my s4 but I love it more now with everything I "needed" turned off.
    How about you?

    I still use Air View, mainly to get a preview of my email messages.

    Just switched from Touchwiz to Cyanogenmod. So that'd be "no".

    I didn't use that many features in the first place, but among those I loved and still use are the hover, including when the phone is off and you're just checking status and time. THe ability to pull down key icons from the toolbar at the top is great. And I do appreciate watch-on, although my uses are specialized. I have loved the camera modes, too.

    I frankly didn't buy the phone for the gee-whiz features. It's great for doing the basics--fast and powerful. Couple with the fairly large screen and it actually makes the promise of a lot of mobile computing come to life. The rest ...frills. Sometimes nice frills, but frills.

    I never used the whiz-bang features either ... I got the phone for its size, display, speed, and ability to be customized and expanded with memory & a spare battery.

    I haven't rooted yet, but will be doing that soon ... then I may or may not install a new ROM ... I don't mind the phone as it is now, having replaced the stock launcher with NOVA Prime ... but if a new ROM will make it even faster and more customizable, then I may install one ...

    A few features have made their way to the nightly build I'm using, like making the taskbar appear in full screen, and ir support

    Mostly the camera. Using Hyperdrive rom. Much faster, smoother, & better battery life than my Gnex plus am able to rock a 64gb sd card.
