    Why would they? It isn't any diff than the s3 or note2.. Samsung values features over performance. That is the trade-off.
    No offense brother, but you have an HTC One as your avatar picture. You really think you're giving a 100% insightful and unbiased opinion about Samsung or either phones? Not trying to pick on you, but you really have no clue what Samsung is thinking.

    Or because it's not a huge deal and most people won't even notice it before they fix it with an update? I'm guessing you're another one that hasn't even used the S4, yet spends his time here trying to put it down.

    You are absolutely right, about the first part, kind of. For most people the lag is not an issue(although there is no real "fix" unless you lighten up the software load). I personally prefer sheer speed, but I definitely understand the vast majority don't even notice. For those people, the s4 is often the best phone choice.

    If you look at my other posts you will see I congratulate people on their s4 and often agree its the best phone on the market for people with removable battery/storage/software features in mind.

    All I am saying is that is the trade off. By purchasing an s4, you are sacrificing performance over software features(and obviously a few other things like storage, removable battery etc.).

    edit: Also, no offense taken! We are all on the same team.

    You're hilarious. "I prefer sheer speed". You picked a phone that has a very simple and light UI and think because it moves smoothly in most places that it's the fastest (sounds very familiar). It doesn't benchmark first. Doesn't win in browser testing. Doesn't win in gaming performance, but you like "sheer speed". Gotcha.
    You're commenting on the S4's performance without owning one. People who own the S4 or want to buy one aren't sacrificing performance at all. Quite the opposite (especially if you own the Exynos 5 Octa).

    Perhaps spending your time over in the HTC One forums might be a better fit for you.

    I spent a good amount of time with the several S4s. In real world use I get around SLIGHTLY faster than the S4. We are talking fractions of seconds here. Also, yes, I agree that the Exynos version is a beast, but very few in the US have those. It'ts not like I am saying this phone is a giant piece of **** and you shouldn't buy it..Why are you guys so damn sensitive? I think it is a great phone, I keep repeating it, yet you guys keep telling me to go away. I am an android fan, this entire forum is a better fit for me. Don't try to shut me up just because I have legitimate criticisms. I have legitimate criticisms about my htc one too.

    Just wait for the Google Edition ROM to become available for loading onto the carrier version.

    Tried it since this afternoon. No issues and battery is fine. I tried just GPU rendering the other day with minimal results. Doing both makes quite the difference.

    Can you explain how to disable Hw overlays and what exactly it does?

    This issue has been beaten to death in every possible way!! Just get the htc one already or apple or whatever device that's not samsung. It would make both sfans and anti-sfans happier (maybe not the anti-sfans).
