    The new super-phone from Samsung, the Galaxy S4 has been in people's hands for a few weeks (or days in the case of Verizon). Now that you guys have had a chance to spend time with the new device, we would like to get your perspective of it.

    We also wanted to call attention to a great conversation thread already started on the subject here: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/samsung-galaxy-s4/245046-s4-first-impressions.html

    In the mean-time here is a poll to gauge your relative excitement for the SGS4 now that you guys have it in hand.

    Are you?

    A: Blown away by this incredible device!

    B: Happy but not overly impressed, finding it to be solid but unremarkable.

    C: Slightly disappointed because it wasn't as awesome as you expected.

    D: Other

    This phone is a huge step up from my Nexus. I'm really impressed and happy with this device, so A for me.

    Just got my S4 today. Moving from a RAZR Maxx. While I am certain I will not be impressed with the battery life, this phone is quite slick. Fast as can be. Loving it right now.

    Blown away!! I had the Droid Bionic before this, so I was able to stretch going from ICS, Gingerbread to JB, but their JB is nothing compared to this beauty!! I'm still learning how I can do everything on this phone, and I've been glued to the boards for weeks now thought I knew everything, this phone showed me up!:biggrin:

    Big step up from my Bionic. I'm enjoying it more as I continue to discover new things. Glad I made the move buying it outright.

    Only question I have is with the toggles. There are nineteen shown here while my S4 only has 16. Curiously, there is no wifi toggle. What up with that?

    Verizon is missing a few (on purpose ;)) compared to other versions. Check this out - Galaxy S4 Software Differences: Verizon vs. AT&T ? Droid Life

    After seeing a friends, I wish I would have waited. I can't believe how light it is. Samsung gets blasted for using "cheap plastic" but to get that kind of lightness, it is worth it.
    Feels like a damn toy! Which I know has turned some people off, and I can understand why... but I like it a lot.

    I'll be damned. It would be good to have the blocking toggle in order to easily shutdown ringer, notifications, etc before going to bed. Must be to simple to release the device as it was intended.
