Anyway, May 10th I guess AT&T is getting a 32GB version of the Galaxy S4. ^_^

I use Apex on my S2 but would like to hear what your reasons are.

I see you guys are raving over this phone, but why? I went into my local mobile phone shop to choose a new smartphone, coming from a pathetically underpowered and undersized iPhone 4, and when using the S4 it felt odd. So I gave it a flex, and boy did the entire phone flex like a convertible. On the other hand, the HTC One was solid as a rock, way more smooth interface, better keyboard (well, easiest for me to type on anyway), and felt overall much higher quality.
So thats the phone I bought, and I couldnt be happier.

I started this thread here if you want to compare to the HTC One...
But Flex on the S4; and much to make it flex like a convertible? Even such over exaggeration is false to me as the S4 really is solid, especially compared to the S3. Are you talking just about the back cover? Is this really an S4 you were using?
It sure may feel cheap to some, but I have mines right now in my hands, trying to 'bend' or see any flex whatsoever. I was even expecting it to make some cheap plastic cracking noise but do not. This phone is solid, even if it's made of plastic.

It's faster (1.9 ghz vs 1.7ghz)
Higher detailed quality images especially in the day light (13mp vs 4mp)
Bigger screen with SuperAMOLED which makes it a much more pleasant movie viewing experience, especially in the dark (which I tend to do)

You're confusing people with FACTS Enough already.

I use Nova launcher on my Samsung Galaxy S4.

Nova launcher > Apex.

I got the black mist version.

The phone feels solid and the design is sexy.

I prefer polycarbonate (plastic) over metal or glass. Polycarbonate is one of the most durable materials. Much more durable than both metal or glass.

I wouldnt really care too much about thd build of any phone cause they should all be in a a protective case..@htc build.

Htc fans resort to absurd measures to feel betterabout their gimicky metal phone. When have you ever seen people flex a phone before to see if its something they might want to buy.

See, if I bend it like this I hear creaks. My bigger, heavier, bulky bezeled, too cold, too hot, slippery, nonflexing brick in my pocket with the smaller screen is superior. Ill go into samsung threads to brag about it. Yeah, thatll show them.

It's been a week now that i've owned the Galaxy S4 and i will say that the lag bothers me a lot. This should already be nonexistent for a flagship device of 2013. I'm using the MDM firmware and 9505 variant and it lags from time to time and i'm not even on power saving mode. I hope samsung fixes this soon, aside from that the phone is a leap from my S2 and is excellent overall.

My Galaxy S4 hasn't been lagging at all.

Install Nova Launcher.
