    50 MB? WTF? I never heard of such a thing. I'd throw it through their window with a nasty note on it and a brick tied to it lol.

    Well, I'm finally back with an update guys! Just wanted to start by thanking every person who participated in this thread or offered advice. I greatly appreciate you all taking time to post in a thread like this

    I went to my local Bell store and started off by letting the rep know that I've been having problems with the phone. I told her that I called the company twice and was told to go in and speak with someone about getting the phone replaced.

    She then politely asked me what problems I was having, to which I told her and showed her (the micro USB wobbly issue). After looking at some paperwork, she told me that she would replace the phone without a hassle. She went back and grabbed a new one (in box and all) and proceeded to transfer my SIM and SD to the new phone. I also told her that I had a screen protector on the phone and she offered to give me a new one completely free.

    I am extremely grateful I got a good rep and that she was understanding.

    Anyways! I asked her if i could see the phone this time and check it over before taking it home. The phone was world's different than the one I had. The buttons were nice and solid, home button was tight, and the micro USB was completely snug. No wobble at all.

    She also told me that because I am still within 14 days, if i have a problem with this phone as well then just bring it back in.

    I am so pleased with the experience and with the new phone. Now I can truly appreciate the Galaxy S4 in all it's perfect glory Again, thank you all!

    Thank you! And I am glad to hear you got the S4! The more I use it the more I am really starting to love it. Now that these issues are gone especially.

    Trust me, it's usually just my luck to get a a phone and have to return it at least once. Every phone I have owned I had to return, but then I got a perfect model second time around. All my friends and their family who have an S4 have gotten perfect models as well. Hope you enjoy yours

    Now you see the rewards of been persistent. :thumbup:

    As I told you before, the Galaxy S4 is a great phone and I decided for it instead of the HTC One because it works best for me and my needs.

    I'm glad to hear you got another GS4 and like it, when you could've asked for another phone.

    Enjoy and have fun with your GS4. :thumbup:

    im sorry my friend but what did you expect out of a cheaply made and hardly supported Samsung product? With the most powerful processors in production Samsung products will still lag and suck huge battery life. Its absolutely pathetic that they still haven't even fixed their horrid SMS application. Ill never by another Samsung product again until they cease the horrid software optimization and totally revamp what is touchwiz

    Glad you got it all sorted out

    Had my GS4 since launch day, and it's been nothing but awesome, sucks when someone gets a bad unit and doesn't get to experience how incredible this beast is.

    Oh c'mon! It's not that bad!
    My GS4 is my first Samsung phone and I didn't need much time to get use to it. Don't see why some people hate TouchWiz.

    I don't get why people hate TW so much either. I remember when I was about to leave my Xperia X10, couldn't decide between the GS2 and Htc Sensation XE, I was almost put off by the negative comments surrounding TW. I went out and tried a GS2 myself and loved it, have stuck with Samsun since, thoroughly enjoyed my S2 and still have it, enjoyed S3 until I broke it and thoroughly enjoying my S4 and can't wait to see the S5.

    I figured those who hate TouchWhiz love vanilla Android. I don't know, but it's best to test the phones yourself so you can decide if you like it or not. :thumbup:

    I used to hate Touchwiz. Now, not so much. (I didn't give Touchwiz my approval before the S4 came along.) Android is all about customization though and because of that, I have bought APEX Launcher and some themes, just in case I want a fresh new look to my device.

    It's awesome. I like my S4... But the with the amount of apps I have, the internal memory is starting to fail me. I have then decided to go and wait for the Note 4 next time. I don't mind the large screen anyway. I rather actually appreciate it, since I would love to have an S-Pen for sketching and photoediting.
