Weak body

The phone's design and body are identical to my Samsung Galaxy Ace IIx, so please, do NOT drop this phone. Any drops from 3 - 4 feet up will not only dent the plastic band around the phone, but it WILL crack the screen too. I speak from experience.... Crying or Very sad

SWITCH ???

I am curious if anybody has switched from the Note 2 to the S4 , in the beginning I thought it was a good idea coming from an htc with a 3 inch screen to a 5.5 inch screen, obviously it is very easy to see cause of its extra large screen, But that also has its draw backs, one handed operation is not a reality.
And like most people now a days I do more texting than talking and it is just difficult to use, and barley fits in a pocket thank god it has voice recognition. I also use the wifi hot spot a lot for my laptop, witch works very good on the note 2.
Just curious If if any one has switched or thinking of switching?
I am hesitant cause except for the huge size the Note2 is actually the best phone I have had so far.

From iPhone to S4

So I have been a long time iPhone user. Ever since the 3g I have had iPhone. The last one was the 5.

I was very concerned on two front about the S4 conversion.

1. Getting my iTunes music easily to the
2. Getting all my contacts and calendar from my work Outlook to sync with my S4.

For me both of these are no issue and after some digging, downloading a fee apps I was golden. I am now in love with Android and my new phone. I am not here to debate which is better I am just giving first hand experience to those thinking of making the switch but concerned about the above.

Lastly I do have a question. How can I get or buy cool ring tones? With the iPhone I could just go in the iTunes store and find them. I have not found them y...

GSM\CDMA

I was kind of wondering. I hope sprint does not take the GSM chip out of the Samsung 4 like the S3. If they do it would not make it a world like Samsung meant it to to be, Big Red has a GSM chip in there Samsung 3. Take note Sprint.

haters gonna hate

the only thing people should be complaining about this phone should be the fact that it is simply too big and way too powerful. There's no reason for people to say that its a bad phone in any way. If you look at the market today there really isnt a phone that comes close to the tech that they put into making the gs4. As for the phone looking the same as the gs3 and note? Look at apples products. The fact is this phone is perfect for any one who wants a big phone with a lot of power and features. But alas Haters gunna hate....like they always do. If your a fan of an iphone your gunna hate this phone but if you like any ol android your gunna want this phone or the HTC ONE. Also i work for ATT as a sales men for phones and i do alot of research...

This is what happens when you cheap out on hiring designers and you can no longer copy other designs

You end up with this.


Bonus points to the extra clash-y blue widget on a blue wallpaper. A+ work you guys.

reception

Hopefully the S4 gets better reception than the S3! I went through three S3's and finally had to get the Motorola Electrify M....which i DO NOT like! I do live in somewhat rural midwest (US Cellular customer). I was told that the phones with a -B on the back behind the battery were the latest and should not have a problem. That is NOT the case. Samsung knows about the reception issue and apparently has made a few changes.

Can anyone out there validate that Samsung has done something about the internal antenna on the S4 to improve reception? It needs a stronger internal antenna!
