user of S pens?

Does only Samsung phones have pens? I am wondering how many Note series users actually use the S-pen? The mainly reason, for me, to own a Note 3 is its large screen and the opportunity to swap a mpj extended battery. Actually I don't think many people use a pen with a phone

Samsung cellphone by Verizon stopped working after recharging...

Hello, I have a Samsung cellphone from Verizon 6-months old with no contract (I don’t see any model #). It was ok but now after I recharged it, the cellphone remained all black – just stopped working. I recharged it again and the same thing.

The little manual that came with it is not helpful. Could someone kindly tell me why and how to fix? Thanks ever so much!

Don't expect s4 battery to be a long term relationship

I think most of the aftermarket batteries are very good for the price like my last one for galaxy s4 from mpj, but the durable is the only problem. Don't expect them to be a long term relationship, My battery lasted very well for about half year and then was on the edge of worn out. However, I actually cannot point fingers at the battery itself as I do stress my phones battery with very heavy ussage.

I am always traveling so

I would recommend this 8500mah extended battery for any traveling businessperson or an individual who needs some more juice in for their phone. I purchased it because I am always traveling and I absolutely despise having to stand next to an airport charging station when waiting for my flight. After using this MPJ battery for two weeks, I really liked it and I want to share my experience.

Galaxy S4 price drops

For reasons beyond my control, I am forced to buy a new phone at full price. (unlocked unsubsidized) I have my eye on the Galaxy S4. On NewEgg it's dropped ~$100 since early February. Given that the S5 has now been released, is the S4's price likely to stay about where it is now or will there likely be further significant price drops in the coming weeks? Thanks in advance!
