    Do yourself a favor and don't do this.
    Got any valid reasons why not? I find myself using the 928 more than the S4. I gave a couple reasons why you should, maybe it would be helpful to actually supply reasons why not.

    In what aspect does the iPhone camera beat the S4 camera?


    Sent from my Galaxy S3 using Tapatalk.
    Simplicity
    Auto-focus is better on iPhone
    Instagram works nicer on iPhone
    iPhone imagers are crisper in my use
    S4 colors are off compared to iPhone
    The power button on the S4 makes it a pain to use as a camera in landscape mode.
    Panorama is by far better on the iPhone.

    I do give the S4 points for the Drama Shot mode. I like the dual front and back camera mode as well.

    I do not agree that the iPhone camera is better, not even close. Are you guys looking at the pics on a PC or just on the device?

    There's a large multi page thread on WP Central in the wp8 forum called What Windows phone 8 Needs to Succeed. Take your pick out of the numerous posts in that thread, most of them are quite valid.

    I have both phones available to me, I disagree; s4 Colors are magnificent, and what does the power button have to do with anything? Panorama is pretty flawless on the s4 - I don't see much of a difference in instagram on either - I'm bored with instagram's filters and use PicSayPro anyway.. All instagram pictures are starting to look the same unless you use a different app.

    I agree. Especially on Panorama pic. Took this just the other day.

    I think the lag is definitely present. I find the biggest issue is when I'm typing. I find it sometime has an issue keeping up with me and ends up writing some jumbled mess. I didn't have this issue on my S3 or DNA.

    I've got all the Samsung junk I could disable disabled. I've also got all their gimmick crap turned off but a couple things. I also have animations turned off, background processes limited, and I'm running Nova.

    And I still see the lag when I'm typing. The slight lag in other stuff is nearly non existent at this point. This is in either Google's keyboard or SwiftKey.

    Because you can install a custom ROM - which, unless I'm mistaken, could fix the lag. I am still on sg3 and have been reading about the 4 but am hesitant until some of these things are worked out. I haven't read a lot about this lag yet, but custom ROMs address all of these types of things. Ask around...

    Yeah. I've looked into it a little bit. I'm just afraid of completely bricking this. It's a great phone if you take out the bit of lag. The keyboard lag is frustrating as I used to barely look at the keyboard on my DNA and now I sometimes type a huge mess.

    I am glad to see that the lag improved after you disabled the Samsung junk, and turned off all of the features of the phone./sarcasm.
    That is a shame.

    To root and install a custom rom is easy as pie. Most people brick there phone because they don't follow all the directions. The S4 has a toolkit which is as simple as pressing numeric number on your keyboard. You do need to install the samsung drivers but the instructions cover this including a link to the drivers. I'm more then willing to help anyone that needs assistance in doing this.

    Thanks! I'd take any help I can get. I'm so afraid of messing something up. But I'd like to unleash some of the fury of this phone that gets locked up by Verizon.

    For all that are interested in rooting, check out the liquid smooth rom for the S4. It completely transforms the phone.

    Yes I did a comparison on MacRumors. Looked at pictures on both screens and on the PC. The iPhone color representation is better. The S4 photos compared to the iPhone 5 photos look a little washed out. The warmer colors on the iPhone 5 immediately make the photos look more vibrant.

    I have both phones available to me, I disagree; s4 Colors are magnificent, and what does the power button have to do with anything?

    Why are you using a Galaxy S3 when you have both phones available to you? Troll.

    The S4 colors are washed out compared to the iPhone 5. I use the phone in landscape to take photos. And I set the volume buttons as my shutter buttons. So when I hold it, the power button is conveniently in the way of where my thumb holds the phone. I missed so many important shots at concerts because of this.

    Panorama on the S4 rarely stitches the photos together as well as the iPhone 5. So many of the black lines above and below the photo.

    And good for you if you don't like Instagram. Me and millions of others still love it because we have friends on it to share photos with. Now with their video option, no way I am going to use another app.

    Did you seriously call me a troll? LMFAO..Get a hold of yourself. Read my other posts, I'm a Samsung fan, yes, but definitely not a troll and find your name calling quite offensive. I'm guessing you are a twenty-something. Grow up. ::eyeroll::

    Important shots at a concert? No such thing, unless you're a professional selling to Rolling Stone or something. Why aren't you listening to the music? Don't be so wrapped up in your phone, man!

    I'm planning to purchase the S4 this weekend, but I've been using smartphones since my iPhone 3G back in 2008. Then had the 3G S. I bought the Droid Bionic to replace that in 2011. Every device I've used, be it Android or iOS has had its share of bloatware. What I really like about Android is the customization; I can eliminate problematic applications and settings in ways that my iPhones couldn't.

    I'll say this about my Droid Bionic, however, it wasn't until I rooted it on Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean that it became the smartphone that met my expectations. Now I can eliminate adware, battery draining apps, and other nuisances with ease.
