Re: Galaxy S4

While it's true the Samsung has bloatware you don't have to put your music on it you can stream from Google Play. This alone saves a lot of space

Seriously? Wow, Nexus users are seriously missing out if they live in an LTE area.

My AT&T LTE on my 5 is stupid fast, sometimes just as fast as my Wifi, and I have Verizon FIOS.

Yeah, but unless you have unlimited data plan, playing music will eat up your data bandwidth.

I do

I guess you could always put you music and videos in dropbox as well.

One of the best features for the GS4 would have to be the multi window, i did not see the guy in the "dogfight" video bring it up. But just being able to watch a video, movie, or surf the net while posting on this forum or replying to text messages

I currently have the Nexus 4 but I want to get either the S4 or the One?

I currently live in Costa Rica so I'll boy the phone at full price unlocked (I don't like having long term contracts)

Which phone would you choose ? S4 or One
I haven't seen any phone in person yet but I'm leaning on the One?

according to reviews, it's the opposite of what you're saying.

Reread the last few pages of this thread and then search Youtube.

Go with the One, the S4 feels like a cheap prepaid phone.

Also, the One comes with 32GB vs 16GB on the S4. Although you can use an SD card, i like having a bigger internal HD.

Lastly, the One came with a lot of Bloatware and I hate it so much. I want to Root it but im scared of bricking the phone.

You won't brick your phone if you try to root it.

Check http://forum.xda-developers.com/ . The only time you're really going to risk bricking your phone will be if you start flashing custom roms/kernals.

There's pretty much no risk there at all.
