    I bought my Galaxy s4 after first buying a Nexus 7. Having used the Nexus 7 I loved Android 's flexibility and openness. Unfortunately, it was not the same experience when I bought my galaxy s4. I didn't appreciate the bloatware. I also don't appreciate the locker bootloader and lack of custom recovery options. I also didn't think the physical home button would be so shoddy but I've replaced the phone once and this one is starting to loosen up as well. Despite all this the phone is snappy and fast, much faster than my Nexus, but I'm thinking of taking the T Mobile deal to get into a Nexus 5.

    Well there's no doubt that it is a great phone but developers need to have a better quality control system where apps are optimised to their fullest. Samsung comes in with their phones with superior hardware but the apps just aren't optimised well enough. I've had apps crash on me even to the point where a popular app such as youtube has crashed. Random phone freezes. Also bugs with the Facebook app. But other than that I'm quite happy with what I've got.

    I just checked back in on all the comments (I'm the OP). Really good stuff everyone. Of course now the GS5 is out and the new HTC and LG are on the way. An 32GB unlocked G2 is only $477 now on Negri Electronics. That's mighty close to a N5...

    Touch Wiz scares me and I would prefer not to have to change my launcher (tried that on other phones and never loved it). From what I understand, though, Sammy lightened up its skin with the S5. I guess I need to go and fiddle with one in the store.

    Thanks again everyone! AC commentors FTW!
