Previously I had an iPhone 5. I liked the iPhone five except for having to run everything through iTunes. With my Galaxy s4 mini I have found the freedom I wanted. I love the drop and drag feature to adding what I want onto my phone. I also like being able to download the amazon apps app. I am able to put anything I want from my purchases from the amazon app store (I have a Kindle Fire HDX). It is very nice to have my favorite apps on both of my devices. I am happy with my phone reception also. I like having all off my Google accounts on my phone. It makes things very convenient. My 17 year-old just up grades to the Galaxy s4 mini also. She loves it.Alao being able to access Amazon Prime for music and videos is a wonderful plus too. We would both recommend this phone to everyone. The only complaint that we have is that the built in speaker is not the greatest. Complimenting them with a descent pair of headphones or ear buds has worked great.

I have had other phones, and none of them compare to my Samsung! The pictures are awesome, the features on the phone are great, and it just runs better than the other phones did. I plan on sticking with Samsung, and handing this phone down to my daughter next year for her first phone.
