    Real talk I know a couple of people that just recently got the s3 because of price difference and the s3 not so far behind the s4.

    Yes they do, but the signal problems are killer, especially on T-mobile.

    What signal problems? T-Mobile in my area is as good as Verizon. Its like that for most of T-Mobile's customers.

    Not really.

    If it were like that for most of their customers T-mobile would be the biggest carrier.

    I currently have T-mobile with a galaxy s III and it sucks. I've swapped phones a couple times and signal still sucks indoors.

    A friend of mine with T-Mobile won't let me talk bad about them, but whenever we talk, she keeps getting a dropped call and I simply reply "That's that T-mobile advantage!" or "was that your terrible-mobile or mine?" she'll say an expletive towards me and we keep talking.

    Those two things have absolutely nothing to do with each other. T-Mobile could have the best network and still be behind in subscribers.

    Quick, point me to where I said ALL subscribers on T-Mobile don't have issues. The words I used have a meaning. When I say most subscribers, I mean most, not all.

    Verizon is overpriced,but still maintains the highest subscribers,if T-mobile had anywhere near the coverage or dependability of Verizon they would have a lot more subscribers,yes where you live T-Mobile may have great coverage,but the majority has spoken,Verizon is number 1 for a reason,it's called coverage.and dependability.

    And it isn't really that overpriced.

    It costs less than at&t, 10 bucks more per month than I'm paying T-mobile (89.99 vs 100=10.01) and after sprint tacks on their bs fees, around 15 bucks more.

    For someone like me that uses more data than the average user, it could get expensive, but for someone that uses an average amount, it isn't much more at all.

    I guess you could say this with a 1 time product purchase but service you have to pay every month for you need to have a dependable network to back it up.It is funny that Verizon continues to **** their customers off with their phone selection lack of timely updates and penny pinching,but they still can maintain that number 1 slot.

    Similar to the iPhone 4s to 5. Only difference was one video feature and screensize. All other features were the same. I jumped into the S4 as my first Android device because I figured that a quad core processor and 2 gigabytes of ram would last me 2 years.

    Problem is when it comes to new gadgets or new phones in general, I start twitching while mumbling I need it, till I go out and buy it.

    Verizon is INSANELY overpriced. Right now on T-Mobile I have unlimited data, messaging, and minutes. I use 6-10 gigs a month. On Verizon that would cost me $120. On T-Mobile, it costs me $80 a month. That is a HUGE difference.

    I believe 70$ is for the 2.5gig throttle limit, have to pay more for higher throttle limit.

    Depending on the service that is not INSANELY...overpriced. Then some pre payer will come on here and say T Mobile is too much...You get what you pay for generally speaking. The worst network is the one that craps out on you when you need it most. I have been with ATT since 1997 and they have not let me down, nationwide. I do not mind paying for a premium network. My wife has T mobile after getting pissed at ATT for something. She was pissed when I would not leave ATT...I told her not to come between a man and his network...! She absolutely hates it when she has to borrow my phone when we are traveling.

    I know people slam on ATT but I asked them for a early upgrade and they said yes, I asked them for the unlock code for my S4 and they gave it to me...what more can a man want?

    Imo, networks are fairly relative where you live at, luckily for me in my areas, T-mobile edges out the other carriers, but i'm not saying T-mobile is the best, i know in some areas T-mobile fails hard. I work at peoples houses, so I'm always in a different part of the state every day, and I couldn't live without T-mobile. I've tried Verizon sprint, yet to have an At/t phone however.

    Maybe mobile devices, much like computers, are just starting to level out.

    Moore's Law has not really applied since 2009 or so. Are dual core handsets like the SGS III really SO terrible that people just have to move to the IV?

    That is just one example. I just bought this phone a month ago. I am guessing the 1.5Ghz quad core processor and 320 ppi display will probably still seem pretty nice by the time my contact is up [read: I won't feel overly compelled to upgrade].

    Perhaps the lower than expected sales are just a reflection of this sort of thing. I mean if you already have an LTE radio and the innards to support JB and KLP?

    That's on the new plan, but the phone payment makes it 90

    If it works for you I can understand. T-Mobile is the smallest for a reason. I had sprint and I used to tease my at the time girlfriend about her T-mobile crapping out while my Sprint worked great!

    How to I write that you are wrong without turning this into a dissertation. It is still in effect, if nanotechnology comes along within the next 6-7 years it will still be in effect.

    It certainly is slowing down:

    "This trend has continued for more than half a century. Sources in 2005 expected it to continue until at least 2015 or 2020.[note 1][12] However, the 2010 update to the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors has growth slowing at the end of 2013,[13] after which time transistor counts and densities are to double only every three years."
