What the hell am I talking about?  I finally broke down and purchased a Galaxy S4 in Black from Amazon yesterday and should have it tonight to swap my SIM card into.  Why did I do this even though I have expressed hatred for the device as well as Samsung?  Well, for one I was curious and once I get this curiosity the only way to satisfy would be to bite the bullet and just get one to play around with.  Another reason for purchasing is because I was able to get the device for the same price as I would pay from AT&T but pay it off over 12 months without accruing any interest.

 

All this being said you can expect to see some in depth reviews of the reviews of the device in the coming weeks as well as comparisons to the HTC One.

All fair, but you should know that I have a problem with buying new phones :P.  Good or bad, its a problem none the less.  

 

Was hoping for legal trouble.

Knowledge is realizing that the street is one-way, wisdom is looking both directions anyway.

My review of the GS4 can be summed up in 2 works.  Utter crap.  I will explain why tomorrow when I am sober and clearly thinking.

I must disagree completely. It's a great device.

It's highly possible that my device was defective but the device that I was using lagged pretty much doing everything.  I know that unlocking this device and flashing a new ROM/Kernel would most likely fix that problem but I can't do that if I plan to use it as my work device as setting my exchange email would require me to get the passcode from our IT dept every time.  The screen was brilliant I will give it that and I liked how thin and light it was.  

 

But the lag was horrid and the overall feel of TouchWiz left me with a bad taste in my mouth.  I am putting together something now that will explain my thoughts better after I had a cup of coffee lol.

Don't worry I am working on something like that as I had the S3 for a LONG time and loved that phone.
