    Just pop a 64GB microSD and you're set. I did that with my S3 32GB and never even used 16 inside the phone. That's why I went with the 16 this time, save some money and not worry about it.

    Yeah, it's great if google left us store apps on external, I mean you have Dropbox for photos and play for music and movies, apps and games are what we need storage for

    You can't install apps to the memory card though at lest from what I can tell.

    You cannot install apps on the SD card. That is a so-called "feature" of the newest versions of android - not because of Verizon.

    Unfortunately, i have detected a minor flaw/defect in the upper right corner of the screen. . It looks like bad pixels. Although the affected area is small and is barely noticeable, it annoys me since it's a new device and I'm thinking of exchanging it with a new phone.

    Like the battery life. Like the feel of the phone and the screen. Like the light weight feel and slim design.

    Dislike the Screen on when a text is received. Dislike the very little, reliable control of the LED notifications. REALLY dislike the fact that the battery door for Wireless Charging has not been released yet.

    I have a Note 2 and even though the S4 is awesome I think I'm gonna go back to my Note 2.
    The screen is amazing, the build quality is great, the lightness, thinness and feel of the phone is great, but I just can't get over the much smaller screen. The Note 2 is huge, but it's still manageable in my hands. For anyone who thinks the Note 2 is way too big, the S4 would be perfect for you.

    Pretty much identical.

    The colors on the S4 are more natural looking, the brightness is about the same. If the Note 3 is anything like the S4 is to the S3 (thinner, lighter, slightly bigger screen, smaller bezel, better resolution) I'm gonna be in love.

    Yeah, have you actually tried it on the S4? I purchased it for my Galaxy Nexus a year or so ago and it worked great there (except for the battery drain). The S4 is practically unusuable. It either doesn't actually trigger the LED or it causes the phone to suddenly start reading text. it's a shame too because I love the idea of the app.

    Yes, I have Lightflow installed, and it works perfectly. I did turn off the stock LED notifications, to avoid any potential conflict.

    biggest con so far is that the S4 isn't compatible with most D-Link routers. Samsung only said to buy a new router. Nice reply Apple Jr.
