Rated 5 out of 5 by First Phone I ever fell in love with! I have owned many smartphones over the years and the Samsung Galaxy S4 is hands down the best phone I have ever had. I know there is the S5 and S6 out there with some upgrades and what not but in my opinion the S4 was Samsung finest work. I have owned the Galaxy S3 before this and everything I wish would be better on that phone they did it with the S4. It is just such a solid reliable phone. My mother owns the S5 and I have compared the two in every way possible. The S4 keeps up completely. There are very minor things that are different between the two. You can't tell any difference in the speed or screen quality at all. I like the S4 more because it didn't need to upgrade to Lollipop. Android 4.4.2 is a very solid OS and doesn't have any of the glitches that 5.0 is experiencing. I enjoy the older layout more as well. I have had the S4 for 2 years and still love it. I do not have one complaint. It has been bug free and glitch less thus far and I have complete faith it will keep going. Be sure to learn as much as you can about your S4 because it has 100's of Features I didn't know of until I really started learning the phone. You will be amazed with everything this phone does and can handle. The Samsung Galaxy S4 has all the power and quality to keep up with these newer phones and it's big brothers but the benefit of stronger Android OS without the flaws and bugs. Thank you Samsung for a truly incredible phone! April 15, 2015
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
