Very Happy I can't say enough about this phone. I sold my Apple iPhone 4S after a geek friend told me the advantages of the new Galaxy 3S, and he was right. The phones clarity, antenna reception, intuition and speed doesnt come close to the iphone. The only negative thing is that its speech recognition is horrific! Samsung must come up with better software to fix it. Since I don't use speech recognition I could care less about it. Really a solid phone. Worth every penny.

Oh yeah it's great. At first when it was announced I thought it was kinda ugly and I was disappointed about the plasticky build, lack of Exynos and the PenTile screen but I was proven wrong. Samsung really out did themselves here. I am so impressed with the S4 processor. So efin snappy, no lag and the battery life is much improved over the Galaxy Nexus. I don't even have to charge midday anymore and I'm using the Verizon version so LTE is enabled everywhere I go. I agree S-Voice needs work though but it's a start.

I sold my iPhone 4 for a Nexus and never looked back. iOS is just too restrictive. I shouldn't have to jailbreak to get certain functionality you know. I hope the iPhone 5 or whatever the hell it's gonna be called is a disappointment. I know it will not have a 4.8" screen. I can't see that from Apple. I can see them doing a 4" with some odd ball resolution and claiming it to be the most detailed screen on a phone yet. It'll probably have gimmicky features no one really cares about.

Regardless it doesn't matter if it has a faster processor, better camera, better screen, etc. It's still gonna be plagued by the same lame iOS software and have the same look as it did in 2007. Same row of icons, no widgets, etc. iOS badly needs a refresh. iOS 6 was very lackluster and if that's all Apple has to offer at this point, I don't blame them for being threatened by Android and filing these ridiculous unwarranted patent lawsuits.
