Rated 5 out of 5 by Comments after 10 months of use of SCH-1545 Samsung Galaxy S4 cell phone Pros Has been my constant companion since purchase. No doubt about it being the BEST cell phone I have ever owned. 1. As good as it gets for a smart phone 2. High resolution, bright screen, even in direct sunlight, large AMOLED screen 3. Fast boot & operation 4. Thin & light weight, rugged construction, been dropped many times with protective case cover & continues to work fine 5. Lots of battery power, last all day + 6. Many improvements over S3 7. Exceptional for use to make voice calls, send text messages with attachments, review & respond to e-mail with attachments, store documents, photos, videos, & music, take photos & videos 8. Has 32GB SD memory card slot for additional storage 9. Bluetooth & wired jack for listening to music & watching videos 10. It can accomplish everything Samsung claims 11. Keyboard is especially fast, easy & accurate to use with stylus Cons 1. Limitations imposed by Android OS 4.4.2 prevents full communication & transfer capability between files on internal & external memory cards. (e.g. user's documents cannot be attached to text messages & e-mails unless user installs a high quality file manager (e.g. ES3 File Explorer) or equivalent. Primitive file management software (e.g. no copy/paste) imposes inability to view & make changes to text documents on internal & external SD memory cards. 2. Even though Samsung has made improvements in capability to create text documents by including Polaris Office software the process is still slow & cumbersome. For users of MS Word, Excel & PowerPoint, it is far easier & faster to compose a text document on the computer & transfer from computer to cell phone. 3. Often web pages are not compatible with Android OS , or only limited so. Adobe Flash is not supported by Android OS, so popup videos & illustrations cannot be viewed. 4. Software that installed update to Android 4.4.2 destroyed external memory card & all files contained there on. Suggest user install only Samsung 32GB external memory card, no other brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Best phone I have owned I have to say I love my Samsung Galaxy S4.Functions well, feels good and I love having a replaceable battery. In fact I purchased the Samsung spare battery pack & charger so I always have a fully charged spare battery to pop in when I need to. I actually do Tech support for cell phones for a living and have to say the Samsung Galaxy Family are my favorites. January 6, 2015
