Yep. Well, I'm happy with my S4, really the closest smartphone I might consider would be the G3, but I'm not on the market right this moment. Waiting for the Snapdragon 810 to reach the market.

TouchWiz is a big reason for that. Also, the Alpha is an annoying device because it's crippled compared to the S5 and is squarely aimed at iPhone users (who are themselves annoying).

Just like it's always been the "cool" thing to hate on Apple? So it's ok to hate on Apple but not on Samsung?

The S4 is a very nice phone, I had one last year.

I've had two GS2's, a Note 2 and now a Note 3. I've liked all of these devices but they all had weak connection issues when I leave the city compared to HTC and LG phones on the same network. Adding metal to the case will most likely make the problem worse unless they use better hardware antennas which I doubt they will. And stop with bashing TouchWiz already. Use a custom launcher like Nova and set it up the way you like.

With all of the comments about this being way too high on here, you picked mine to sh*t on. Well, its still to high. No thank you for your input.

I picked up the Maxwest Android Gravity 5.5 (Kit Kat) from YIPPZ. This phone has a 5.5 inch screen, quad core, 13.0 mp camera and is Dual SIM. It's super fast! I love it, because I can choose any MVNO and I am not stuck in a contract!!

I am really excited to have it because, I am going to be traveling and I can take it with me and use it oversea's. All I have to do is pick up a sim card in the country I am visiting.
