Verizon Store Experience: Display Mounts
I just was at a Verizon store in Union City, CA, just a couple minutes after it opened this morning. The salesman put me in the queue to be helped; said it would be 30-40 minutes. There were about 6 or 7 customers in the store. I was a bit surprised that it would take that long, and really surprised that no one but me was looking at the S4 demo unit. I was going to wait, but then I attempted to play with the S4 demo unit. The frustrating part is they no longer have their display phones connected to a retractable tether. The display mounts look exactly the same as they always have, however, you can't lift up the phone. There is no longer a retractable cord. I wanted to see what the phone felt like in my hand, but it was impossible to do so since you can't hold it in your hand. I asked the salesman if the display mounts were new; he said they just installed those last week. I can't decide between the S4 and the Note 2, but it's hard to make a valid comparison when you can't hold it in your hand! Since I've put up with a cracked screen (Galaxy Nexus) for a year, I figured I could wait a little longer, and walked out of the store.
Do all the Verizon stores now have these ridiculous mounts so you can't hold the phone it your hand?
