    I WANTED to make this work, I really did... I was all excited about the S4 being water resistant, great screen, the Smart Dock accessories... It all seemed great.

    Then I found out, no 4.3. No Galaxy Gear. No communication on when things can be expected.

    Sadly, I will be selling my S4 and all the fun toys I have bought... It might not be fair to Samsung, or Android, but I can't shake the fact there are still updates that need to be addressed, and nothing has been done about it.

    Again, I might be wrong, I might be missing something, but from where I stand, all the hype has been just that.

    iOS is FAR from perfect, but at least they are all in it together.

    Maybe the S5 will be better...

    My Galaxy Gear works fine with my S4 on Verizon so I am not sure where you are getting your information.

    Most people around the world with an S4 have 4.3 by now - maybe you should be angry at your carrier for not upgrading, rather than Samsung and Android.

    That was one of the things I was upset about... With Android its always someone else's fault. Samsung should place pressure on the carrier, or vice versa.

    Again, Apple isn't perfect, but if there is an update, everyone gets it, if there is something wrong, everyone is without. You don't have the "grass is greener on the other side" you get with Android.

    I will keep trying, because there are features I really like, but I think they need to work on being on the same page.

    Samsung was a poor choice for Android. Lately they have been having lots of issues, if you want to see what Android is really like, get the Moto X or Nexus 5

    Different strokes for different folks I guess, my note 3 has been a far better experience than my Nexus 5

    I missed that part. And I think he makes a good point about how the Android world tends to be somewhat disjointed between Google, the phone manufacturer, and the carrier.

    I didn't meant to start any kind of war, just needed to vent some frustration... It sucks that the hardware is soooooo close to being great, but the software can't keep up.

    That's the difference between closed and open systems. One's homogeneous and the other's heterogeneous.

    True!

    Anyway, you should try the nexus 5 or the Moto X, I hear they're pretty good.

    You could also get the regular GS4 which is already on 4.3 and get a waterproof case.
    That's what my brother did and he couldn't be happier!
    My bro got the Lifeproof Frē and has dropped the phone several times on concrete and in water, the result; his GS4 is fine and dandy!

    Yeah. It's somewhat of a mess.
    That's why I am sticking to the Nexus line or Moto X from now on...

    Try the Moto X or the Nexus 5. Those are the best Android phones to date currently. They all blow the Samsung S4 away.

    That is the difference between apple and their one and only phone they hope will work for most peoples needs, and android, with many types to fit everyone's needs. my S4 has been working perfectly, I have not had any of the issues that seem to pop up.

    Uh, yeah. Good luck with the walled garden, OP. The only good iPhone is a jailbroken iPhone (IMHO - I also have an iPhone 4S with 7.0.4, jailbroken). So you better act fast before Apple patches the jailbreak exploits and seals up your ticket to a jailbroken iOS7 device.

    I would recommend trying a different android device other than Samsung before giving up on Android completely. Pick up a Moto X or Nexus 5 and experience Vanilla Android. Its far better. Samsung, HTC, etc all out their own UI on their phones and I don't believe they do android any justice. Just my opinion though.

    Anyway, good luck with Apple!
