Do not get an iPhone 4S. Just don't do it. I'd wait a month for the 5S, or if you're impatient get a 5.

I have a hunch they're releasing larger storage with a lower price, so 32gb $199, 64gb $299, 128g $399. Also better camera and fingerprint unlocking.

You could also look at the Nokia Lumia 1020 if you like to be different and value the camera. It is a solid phone.
So I've got AT&T and the upgrade price is $199 for the current S4, do you think that'll drop in the next month, or so, with some new phones coming out?

How can anyone accurately answer that unless they have internal AT&T documents that are pre-cursors to this type of thing?

By looking at prior occurrences with new phone releases, of which I don't pay attention to.

IDK. I thought they already had dropped it? I used the S4 for a little while but I'm not an expert on it. I wasn't exactly sold, and was happy to get rid of it.

PM me if you have iPhone/S4 pro/con questions, I don't want to derail the thread and get the S4 owners pantys' all twisted up.

My S4 cracked internally. There are cracks on the INSIDE of the screen but not on the outside, I have had the phone for 20 days. What a POS, its never in my jeans so it can't be a pressure crack. I am going to try to contact Samsung but I doubt they will do anything, verizon told me to kick rocks.

If all else fails AMEX should cover it. I like how Samsung showed how "durable" this phone is but the screen cracks on the inside lmao.

I buy quality. That is why I bought a GS4. Along with the kickass camera, sleek feel (the HTC1 feels a bit...bulgy), customization (Android > iOS) and other reasons.

If I drop it once, I don't have to worry about $200 for a brand new screen! It's pretty wonderful.

I ended up going with the Galaxy S4 yesterday. I'm officially lost on using the phone thus far although I'm slowly getting the hang of it.


What bloatware can I automatically get rid of? I'm not going to jailbreak (or whatever the equivalent is to iphones) it, or anything like that.

I believe not. Get comfortable and learn the phone, then you'll be more confident to root it, it's really simple
