    When I bought my S4 I looked real hard at the Note 3 but decided that it was just to big for my needs and that the screen on the S4 was big enough. Now that it's been a little it and I am used to the S4 I really wish I would have bought the Note 3 instead. Does anyone else have S4 buyers remorse?

    I like my S4, but would have preferred the Note 3 if it had been out when I got the S4.

    I might have gone with the Note 3 as well, but I'm perfectly happy with my S4. Solid as a rock.

    I wouldnt say I regret it. I just got the Moto X and love it. I sold my S4 for $455 on Ebay, so I don't regret it at all! haha

    It was almost a coin toss between the Moto Maxx and the S4. The S4 won out, among other things with a replaceable battery and the ability to change memory chips. No regrets. I came from the OG Droid and the Bionic, BTW.

    No regrets here, as well. Nova Prime plus 32 GB SD card.

    As phones continue to improve, the new ones that come out are only slightly better or just different. So, less and less "buyer's remorse" than used to be the case.

    There's always going to be a next thing. There will always be a perception of better than what you got. Had you gotten a Note 3, the G2 or S4 might have caused the same feelings. My decision was between the S4, which quickly was dismissed once I got my hands on the other choices the Note2 or 3. Once I stopped looking at what was better about the 3 my buyers remorse was replaced with "this is an excellent device" and I haven't looked back. I wanted the s pen features of my Note8 on my phone and ended up getting that and saving some big bucks vs a Note3 .
    If you don't want to take advantage of the s pen the S4 has nothing to be remorseful about. The S4 is an excellent phone.

    I regret it, but not for anything being wrong with the phone.
    I regret it because Samsung and Verizon won't stop e'ffn with it.
    KNOX, trying to make the phone so you can't modify it.
    It's MY phone. I didn't ask for knox.
    If they are so worried about someone bricking the device and trying to warranty it, LET US UNLOCK THE BOOTLOADER!
    You have to work real hard to hard brick a device with an unlocked bootloader.

    I hate Samsung at this point and will be looking at other alternatives.
    If I didn't have cheap unlimited from Verizon, I'd dump them too.

    Just picked the s4 last week. I've seen many phones come and go. The s4 looks like it has a mainstay in the market. No regrets. Just wish that the new Google phone was going to be on Verizon. But as soon as I saw that I went and got the s4.

    Not really - but seeing my friends Note3 - it would sway wanting the iPad Mini's features.

    I like the S4.

    But that's easy for me to say because I bought the Note 3.

    I think the s4 is finally a phone that comparable to the Iphone. I only owned the Iphone for a brief period of time, but every family member has it. I am coming from a decade long Blackberry background. Blackberry was great for texting, emailing, and phone calls but sucked in every other form.

    No because I like a phone I can fit in my pocket. These phablets or whatever they're called are too big! You need a bag or pouch to carry them.

    this thread made me nervous until I read it.... LOL I like mine so far 4 days and counting....

    I actually had my razr for 2 years.... it was working great until recently (crashes)..... did not see anything that compelled me to upgrade - it had to be a pretty big difference..... the specs on the S4 look pretty sweet.... :)
