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.

You had a note 2 right, then went to gs4?

So Google announced the Galaxy S4 with Stock Android that they would be selling on the Play Store starting June 26 for $649 fully unlocked. Do you guys think it's a good deal? If I were to buy it it would be my first ever smartphone. I'd be upgrading from an LG Dare from 2008 haha.

I'd say it's a very good choice, unless you want all the cool features that touchwiz has which imo I like and are useful. I'm sure if you get the Google edition gs4 you'll be able to flash a tw based Rom on there anyway, so I'd go for it.

That was my main concern. I figured that there would eventually be some 3rd party apps that would restore the features that Samsung added to their version of the GS4 so having stock Android would not be a problem. I really like the idea of having an unlocked and fully paid for phone that I can then take to whichever GSM carrier I want and even take it overseas if I needed to. I am currently thinking about using T-Mobile and avoiding AT&T. T-mobile's Uncarrier plans seem like a really good choice ESPECIALLY if you are bringing over your own phone. I am always tempted to tell myself to wait and see what new phones come later in the year like a new Nexus or whatever but I've learned that you can play that waiting game indefinitely. There will always be something better around the corner so I'd rather just jump in now.

Terrible choice. No one in their right mind would pay for that. Plus if you get the S4 subsidized on a carrier you can root it just as easiliy and have the "google" stock android experience. Or just buy a used S3 and have the same deal. I personally am waiting for the next subsidized google phone. Until that day... I will have to suffer with my galaxy nexus.

Why would it be a terrible idea?

Whether or not you purchase the phone from the wireless carrier, your data rates will still be the same per month.  They say that their prices are expensive because it includes the price of the phone....but when you already have the phone, they still charge you the same per month.
