    It's funny how some are so brand loyal. Whichever phone I buy I always think the OTHER phone is better because I only see the flaws in mine. I rule out the One for a funny reason, I love multicolor led.

    I think what gets lost in this whole thing is the ridiculous amount of choices we have now. The One doesn't have removable storage or a removable battery, but has more internal storage available and has a developer edition. The S4 has a removable battery, expandable memory, and a Nexus-like Google edition. If the price point is too high for the Dev/Google versions of these phones, you can get a Nexus 4 for $350 off contract.

    I've enjoyed my time with the S4. It's nowhere near as offensive as some tech sites/reviewers would have you believe. I'll be taking another crack at the HTC One so I can properly review that, too.

    Light flow can't make 2 color led into multicolor led. In the tbolt it did give you a third color by mixing red and green to get yellow but you had to be rooted.

    I want the google gs4 so badly it makes. me ache. I wouldn't hesitate to pay full price but I am stuck with Verizon.

    The Google Edition S4 isn't compatible with Verizon's network.

    Wow. That sucks. I'm in Canada and that is one thing we have going for us. The two largest networks support every type of phone so we can get any device and it works.

    The S4 has the same problem as S3. If you use any app that requires accessibility set to on the Talk Back function turns on and you cannot shut it off!

    So far they've only shared play store availability.

    The n4 still gets great speeds on hspa42 even without lte. Many carriers consider their hspa networks to be 4g.

    That's my point the HSPA+ network is so good you don't miss it much. Plus I am on Wifi most of the time anyway.

    Come on, man! Why is this a thread? Another f'ing thread... because there weren't 40 identical ones to post that link in? Nobody would have found their way over to that tiny little tech site on their own? This is ridiculous. Like a bunch of petulant children here. If you can't get the last word in on a thread, start another and get the first word in over there. If you weren't happy bashing the moderators time and time again in one thread, just search for the latest "GS4 vs One" thread (trust me - some enormous tool is bound to start one every day) and you can keep going at it. You can say it happens "like clockwork" all you want, but you're part of the problem and you keep winding that clock. This thread was flying off the rails halfway through the first page. And the moderators, who love to say "don't feed the trolls", apparently roll around here with garbage bags full Red Vines and Doritos, Cheez-it's and Red Bull, because they can't stop themselves from feeding everyone. And then there are the lurkers who just pop in to stir the pot in case things actually start to settle down a bit. Good Lord, it's like The Warriors in here.

    Then a bunch of us stupidly come to this thread, clicking on the "Trending Now" link, only to find the usual suspects in another pissing contest over which fans are more obnoxious and why moderators shouldn't be allowed to have opinions. Then there's the "don't talk about lag on my GS4! You're a filthy liar!" guys who are immediately followed by the jerkoff posting "meh, the GS4 sucks. HTC FTW!". (On a side-note, anyone who uses "meh" and "FTW" in a post should have their login revoked and YOLO tattooed on their forehead). While "you better not be talking about me" and "I'm not getting sucked into this again, except for these next 10 posts" get plastered all over the forums and you nincompoops stand around with your arms folded and your chests thrust out like your **** don't stink, you are making this place very not-fun for the rest of us.

    There's no more lively debate. No more geeking-out as a community. We can't talk about battery technology without the "non-removable batteries are stupid" snipers. We can't discuss anything regarding manufacturing or build-quality because "plastic sucks, can't you get that through your thick head?" and there will be blood spilled at some point. I can't talk about something on my phone that I don't like or that isn't right because I know the thread will become a "that's because your phone is a POS and my phone is powered by the blood of the baby Jesus" fiasco. For the record - that isn't real helpful, just telling someone their phone sucks. It's not why most of us started coming here in the first place. I lurked around here for over a year before I signed up because it was a little intimidating, seeing all these people who seemed to know what they were talking about and not wanting to sound like a total moron. But people were welcoming and wanted to help, so it was good. But some of you guys have turned into a virus that just keeps spreading and infecting every damn thread you post in. The sad thing is, we never know when you all are going to show up. We just know that you will. Thanks for screwing it all up for the rest of us.

    Here's a speed test on my Nexus 4. Not LTE speeds but I can rarely tell the difference.
