    I have had mine all of 12 hours, but so far I am very happy with it. I have experienced zero lag as many have complained about and so far my battery life is stellar. I did put some strong consideration into getting the HTC ONE but after playing with the live demo I just couldn't get over the button layout and the blink feed. As popular as it is to hate on Touchwiz, I still think it's the best Android skin as far as ease of use and customization. The S4 is a beast

    100% happy as can be here. My wife and I both upgraded to the S4 earlier this week. We moved our service from Sprint to U.S. Cellular as we live in BFE and they have the best service here. Also they were running a special for new customers for a $100 mail-in-rebate on the phone. S4 for $100? Yes please!

    Phone is, bar none, THE most fun I've ever had with a phone. We're coming from the old Samsung Epic 4G (the one with the slider keyboard) and are absolutely amazed by the speed and beauty of this phone. My wife, who isn't the most tech savvy, is loving it! When she first got a chance to dig around she looked at me with a dazed expression and said, "This thing is f***** AMAZEBALLS!!" We've had zero problems so far. Great battery life, a bit of lag here and there but nothing compared to the old phones, gorgeous screen, great feel in the hand, and just an all around sexy piece of tech. Haven't really gotten a chance to play around with the crazy air and gesture features (as many others have said, "stupid work.") but that's what this weekend is for!

    LOVE IT!!!!

    Got my Verizon S4 the day it released. Moved up from a Droid X2. Don't miss a metal body...especially since I realized that none of my previous phones were metal! It's also almost half the thickness of the Droid. Many have complained about the "evolutionary" design as a negative. Frankly I didn't buy this phone so that people would see it across a room and point! I bought it for the removable battery and the expandable storage. I am blown away by the performance! With all the complaints and trolling about the camera in low light I took some photos at dusk that were brilliant and didn't activate the flash. Truly, those complaints must refer to taking photos in the dark, not "low" light. Battery life is great too! What's not to love?

    Perfectly happy here. and I came from 5 years of using iPhones. Great phone. Perfect size. Great features. Sync's perfect with my iMac using Kies.
    Even the 16GB is a non issue. I have my entire music library + pictures I had sync'd back to this phone, all my apps from iOS and still have 6GB free and no SD card.
    My sig says it all.

    Never been happier. Phone is beast and battery is great too. Don't care if phone is made of aluminum, titanium, liquid metal, polycarbonate or plastic. I could care less what others think about it. I know it's the best out there.

    At first I was. Now I kind-of wish I got the iPhone 5 to be honest... the 5-inch screen isn't really something I've been using after the first week of having the phone. I have a lot of issues with it too. I'll do my own post about it.

    It's a great phone, but I just feel like it was overhyped a little bit... and a lot of its problems were completely ignored by reviewers. For example, the "ultra-sensitive touchscreen" is actually a bad thing... I end up hitting keys without even touching the phone, making texting a lot more difficult. This is with the extra sensitivity feature turned off.

    I'm enjoying it. Had a few problems that I worked out. The only issue now is that it does get hot even on light use. I dont play games, but even Internet browsing can get it hot. It doesnt overheat and shut off, but it does get hot. Just as im typing this its getting warm

    It's getting hot because it's not a cool phone. ;-)

    I'm happy with my S4. Sure, I've managed to find occasional glitches and hangups qnd find I like to restart it every couple days, but it does all the core stuff well and is such a huge upgrade from my Droid Charge. Even when that was new I had second thoughts about it. This one feels perfect for me and my use and actually feels like a SMARTphone.

    I just got the T-Mobile Galaxy S4. Came from a Galaxy S2 for a year that was giving me problems after Samsung updated to Jellybean. I went to T-Mobile Store intending to change to the I-Phone 5 because of the frustration I was having with my Galaxy S2. The salesman was very knowledgeable and explained why the better choice was the new Galaxy S4 and that Samsung has fixed the issues that were happening with the S2. Actually the salesman had been a die hard I-Phone lover and traded his in for a Galaxy S4. I am still figuring out how to use the amazing features such as air glide and the camera that has 12 modes of taking crazy pictures. This phone is amazing I absolutely love it !!!! The only complaint I have is the sbort battery life needing to charge it twice a day but my S2 was the same. Fair trade for an amazing phone,

    I can honestly say I had the HTC one first for about a week .. as OCD as I am I wanted to make sure I was getting a phone I was "content" with so I returned it for the galaxy s4 which I used also for a week. Giving myself a fair oppurtunity to play with both having a more informed hands on opinion based on what I like .. and to be honest I was glad to go back to the HTC one ( all black ) ... When you take sound/headphones/front speakers vs standard back little speaker .. over all physical feel, smoothness of OS vs lag and glitchyness and getting rather hot after doing light tasks like webbrowsing ... My choice was a no brainer ... The only thing I liked at all that I found comparible having used both was the camera during the day .. s4 takes really nice pics .. and the camera softeware is pretty sweet.. but in the end Im content with my HTC one more

    I had my S4 for two weeks. It is a great phone and it is a solid choice. For me, it just wasn't the right choice. I had a lot of issues with lag and stuttering. I alternated launchers and used all of the fixes. The phone ran fabulously after that. In the end it came down to screen real estate, so I traded it in for the Note 2. But the S4 is a great phone with really nice features and I think for most people, the sweet spot in phone size. I would recommend the phone, but I think once Samsung rolls out a few fixes it will be close to perfect.

    I had lots of fun playing with the htc one today. Its definetly a great phone. Like many, I had to make the choice between the s4 or the one. I decided with the s4 as soon as the 32gb came out and I am very pleased. Im not having the lag issues that many have reported, but did have a battery issue for a little time period. Overall I'm still excited owning this phone.

    I deeply apologize for if I've offended anyone stating my not so "contentment" for the s4 and my personal experience .. I should have assumed a sarcastic reply considering I jumped off the s4 school bus ... As you can see I'm a little new to android central and, I should be more aware of the segregated gang like behavior with .......... certain others...... I guess I had it coming cause I'm on the wrong turff ...

    Um...okay weird post. But It's not that opinions aren't welcome, but this was the ONE thread where we s4 fans get to admire and praise what we consider to be an amazing phone. There is an HTC One forum where you can do the same for your phone of choice. Why post it here?

    I honestly do not care what you think of the s4, this isn't the thread for more negativity from HTC one fans. It borders on trolling.

    "Admire and praise".. dude relaxe it's just a phone . Lol!!. like I said "I apologize" .. and obviously you do care about what I think because your resentment clearly shows.. on a side note.. if I ever decide to start a thread about HTC one contentment and you decide to go out and give one a try only to find out it's not for you and then you openly state your opinion/feelings regarding how content you were... I would personly not get offended. Why...? Cause at the end of the day it's a phone

    Sorry this is a thread about how you are enjoying the SGS4 NOT why you have switched to the One or what you didn't like. There are plenty of other threads for that, so why do you feel the need to add to a thread that plainly is for current SGS4 owners and users that want to praise the phone, nothing more or less. No need to take the thread off topic in the way you have!

    I must admit I bought this phone for the third time. 3rd time must be a charm. It's working way better than the previous ones I had. Some lag compared to my One and OG Pro but tolerable. Pics are awesome compared to my One. Slightly better than the Pro. I must retract previous bad talk of this phone. 3 great phones. Its a geeat time to be a phone junky
