    I think this time around it's hard to make a choice really. The S4 is LOADED with features, most of them made by Samsung. S health, Dual Camera, Drama Shot, the list goes on. And that is not to say that some of the apps are crap, because there are a few that are. However when you go pure android you give up a lot of those great features. I have ALWAYS been an Android purist. If I was going to use Android, it had to be a Nexus. But ever since the S4, the included features have really enticed me. I sort of see it like putting a Toyota Paseo engine in a Dodge Challenger. Trust me, I know the pros and cons of pure android but this time around it doesnt seem to be enough to move me toward pure android. And I think that is a great thing. These manufacturers are listening!

    If you know how to Root and ROM the phone, you can put the GE ROM on the Carrier S4. So...buy the cheap one!

    Tbh, I'm happy with my s4 running touchwhiz, I also bought my s4 because of some of its cool features like air gesture etc.

    After spending all this time with my S4 Active and then comparing it to pure android, I am much more pleased with the regular S4. There are some really nice things about stock and the customization is infinite though. I suppose it depends on the route you want to take with your phone.
