    DO NOT buy this phone I switched from the Iphone 5 to the GS4 3 weeks ago. I put the phone in a neoprene sleeve and went for a run. The moisture sensor was tripped and the phone was ruined. I've run half marathons with my iphone and never had a problem. I went to Samsung and they told me to pound sand. If you workout...this is not the phone for you. FYI...

    Wow, I do not own the s4, but Indo recall a review where the s4 was ran under a steady stream of water from a faucet for like 30 seconds and it was fine, I was pretty impressed considering the screen was even shattered in the vid, all was fine and the unit functioned.

    Sorry to hear of our issue.

    I get the skepticism but I was using it in a completely ordinary way. I switched from the IPhone 5 to the GS4 about 3 weeks ago and loved it. 2 days ago, I went for a run. About 4 miles in, it dies. When I got back, I took it to the AT&T store and they told me the moisture sensor was tripped. The phone is a brick now and doesn't work at all. No advice needed. I went to Samsung for help and received none. I was just offering an FYI. I'm not the only person this has happened to. Thanks for your time all.
