....but Verizon will only ship it at the end of the month. Everything I have read, seen and folks who have used one seems favorable. I am looking forward to getting mine in about 2 weeks. Wish I could offer some first hand experience.

Galaxy S4 review
by hamidAWC / May 13, 2013 5:14 PM PDT

I got one and first thing I must say is about the Display! It is really unbelievable and I hadn't seen such quality before. and I must I don't agree with those who say it is some cheap plastic phone!! It is really beautiful and the design is really great
About software features, I think Samsung included everything possible in this phone Happy But some of them are not practical and needs to be more completed/ Features like Smart Scroll! I once did Smart scrolling on the street and everyone was starring at me and thought I am crazy!! Why are you moving your head man??

By the way, I like this phone very much...

I saw in AW Center, that they made a Pros & Cons list for S4

The 16Gb version, gives you just about 9Gb free space
Overheating for some devices (Not confirmed officially)
App installation on SD card is not allowed
The software features (innovations?) are just not mature enough! Maybe on Galaxy S5 Wink

Haven't managed to get my hands on the device yet (expecting it to come in a couple of weeks) but the device is surely a great one. Display is awesome and another thing I really like about it is its processor. Powerful enough to deal with all the task you launch in the device.

heating problem in s4 i9500
by harigrg33 / June 5, 2013 4:45 AM PDT

I have bought my s4 on 9th of may, it is i9500 exynos octa version. For 2-3 days it was working quite perfect but suddenly I started feeling the heat on my device near the camera region. I came to encounter this problem after I install few apps and games like fb, skype, dragongon hunter-4. As well my battery is getting drain very quickly say about 3-4hr per one time charge..... it is said that after update tne problem will be solbed as I have sen in some video but it didnt helped iny case. My device is still having the heating problem and it rise up to 55°c which I have checked by dialling *#0228#.... I hope samsung will give some serious concern in this problem.
