    My wife's s4, to me, is a real disappointment. Messaging app constantly force closes even after the software update. Its laggy also. Hangouts app won't sign into Google after the Google talk update either. Samsung has not impressed me at all on this one.

    On hangout are you in good sprint signal? Have you rebooted your phone on messaging app update

    Why??? I'm tired of this phone! Already had to return the first one because it locked up so bad and now this new one is doing the same. Sorry if this upsets you but this has gotten old, fast.

    Given your experience I can understand your frustration. I've had my Sprint s4 for almost a month now and my experience is the complete opposite of yours. Very happy with it and it's performance. Not sure what's happening in your case. For the lockups have you tried to pinpoint if there is a specific app getting installed causing it?

    That's what I'm trying to figure out now. I've never had a phone act this way. My nexus works beautifully so I don't know what apps she's loaded on here that might be causing the problem, if that's the problem. Although, when I reset the first one she had, the messaging app forced closed right away. Also, S Health app force closes too.

    Since you got an update, did you try wiping the phones cache in recovery?

    Let me guess... You didn't want your wife to go with the GS4... And you tried to apply your nexus type tweaks and since... It's gone south. Factory reset and let it be a GS4... Learn the arguably best phone on the planets ways, be willing and you'll see what an awesome phone it really is. Sure it has its quirks but nothing that can't be overcome. This forum is the place to get it done thanks to all that are willing to help.
    Me? Just hang'n around trying to leach knowledge from the knowledgeable.

    It annoys me because there wasn't a question attached to your whining about it...this is a forum and people are here to help...you didn't sound like you wanted any...and going on the internet to a forum dedicated to a device and then saying (without saying of course). "I don't like it and you're all stupid for liking it and there's nothing you can do about it..." then expecting people to rally around you like a teenage girl who just got dumped by the teams quarterback is either a very passive aggressive form of trolling...or the worst possible way to share your views to would be buyers.

    I have to agree I own a s4 and a one, I want to love both so far I'm absolutely head over heels for the one but the s4 bas been a little hard to feel the same the lag is getting worse with time, especially with typing and real racing 3, I've tried cleaners, disabling unused apps and functions, which brings my next point that most of the smart and air gestures only work half the time I have tried apex and nova but it doesn't help, again not bashing it I'm keeping it with the hopes of future updates fixing or maybe rooting with a rom

    Well, I factory reset it (second time since owning the phone) and it fixed the hangout sign in but have found that the messaging app will force close when sending or receiving a picture.

    We've owned a lot of android phones especially Samsung phones and I've never seen touchwiz slow a phone down this much. Still a great phone though.

    There is a known issue right now on the S4 that will force close the messaging app if you're connected to a wifi source with any sort of special characters in the name. Update is on the way from Samsung. That might be what you are seeing.

    Have you disabled stock bloatware? Sometimes force closes happen because of a lack of memory. This may help lag too.

    Also, I have read every post in this thread, and not one even insinuates that anyone is "stupid for liking it" and yada, yada, yada. I'm all for pointing out when someone is wrong, or standing up for someone's right to express an opinion, but I do not agree with undermining someone else's opinions when they are just stating their experience with a device.

    Problem? It's not the mod... It's the statement... Just expressing my opinion. Afterall... This is America... First Amendment and... Well, on second thought... Shut my mouth. Forums are after all something of a police state. I'll bend to the elites and apologize for my unneeded reply.

    What's next? Forum police kicking down my door and beating up my cat? He yawns a lot...

    Huge yawn.

    Its real simple, forums (any forum) has a terms of service and rules/guidelines to follow. You agree to those when you enter and create an account here to participate.
