    Default Jumping to AT&T, get the GS4 or wait for the GS5

    I know this is a rather stupid question (for some) but I am jumping to AT&T and while the GS5 looks nice based on what we have seen should I just get a GS4? I mean the S600 2GB RAM, 32GB (23+ usable) isn't so bad compared to an S801. I had the GN3 but honestly its just bulky now that I have to carry two phones (work and personal).

    Who has the best deals on the GS4?

    I'd go for the S5, unless you could get a really good deal on the S4. A new S4 is still around $49 on contract. Don't remember seeing any deals on it recently.
    If not, the S5 is the obvious choice.

    Got my new S4 for 99 cents on Black Friday at Sam's and then noticed Best Buy had it for free!

    Just get an LG G2, it is basically a galaxy s5.

    Wait for the S5. Kit Kat is all kinds of messed up on the S4. For me anyway. I will be fixing it by upgrading to an S5 this summer so...... wait is my advice. Good luck with whatever you decide.

    Umm no. The S5 may have similar specs but it's no G2.

    They are different phones

    In my opinion, get the S4. I wasn't too impressed with the S5. Specs are only slightly better.

    Your decision though.

    Raptor007 are you going to be happy with last year's model with slower specs and performance than the Note 3?

    I would wait for the S5 just because you are use to a certain performance level with the Note 3.

    The Note 3 was a generational leap from the S4. The S5 is more its equal.

    For the price if you're on a budget, S4.

    For the latest specs and the money aren't an issue, S5.

    I have S4, its not worth the upgrade for me. I am considering Note 3 since I draw a lot with SketchMobile. Note 3 is on par with S5.

    For the best deal, usually Amazon has the best deal. I would price match it at Best Buy since they do the price match now. So do a research from a known vendors and show it to Best Buy, they'll price match it.

    Hi:

    Have the S2. Staples has the S4 for a penny right now with a 2 year contract. Thinking of buying it instead of waiting for the 5.

    I have a question if someone could answer I'd appreciate it.

    On the S2 Samsung blew the voice dialing feature.

    When you connect to the phone via the bluetooth ear piece, the microphone on the phone should go silent & everything should be heard just thru the ear piece.

    On the S2 that doesn't happen. You hear everything thru both the phone microphone & the ear piece.

    Did Samsung correct this issue on the S4?

    Thanks.

    AT&T is the way to go but I would not ever buy a branded phone again. The Motorola X Dev or the Nexus 5.

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure that's gone now...

    If for no other reason, I'd go S5 just because it'll likely see a few newer versions of Android. Willing to bet the S4 won't go past 4.4.2.
