    I picked mine up at Walmart last week. $168 with a new line, plus they gave me a $50 gift card.

    I upgraded from a RAZR Maxx. I love the screen and the speed, but I haven't given the battery life a workout yet.

    Update. After just 2 days of having it the volume up button stopped working. I restarted and it got stuck in the recovery screen. Come to find out the button was stuck in. Verizon replaced it with a new S4.

    I am loving this thing. Ive had motrolla for too long. This seems to have a more quality look and feel from the hardware to the UI.

    Ordered mine from Amazon, hope keeping unlimited data was worth it! Paid full freight, should be here tomorrow! To root or not to root, that is the question.

    Just got my S4 a couple of days ago, upgraded from OG Droid (and what an upgrade!). Best part for me is the combo of Daydream with DashClock

    Man and I thought coming from the Razr Maxx was a huge jump. You just went from AOL to T1 :) Congrats

    Rooted within an hour of ownership. Added wifi toggle too. Really liking Touchwiz too. Only thing I wasn't a fan of was the stock keyboard so back to swiftkey

    Got my S4 about a week ago. Love it. Can't stop playing with it. Not knocking on Droid, but battery life is waayyy better and it's much faster. Actually have a legit case with a built in battery made for these already too.

    Got mine 4 days ago. It was a huge jump from my 4 year old Nokia 5800 XpressMusic. Already bought some apps from the store. So far I'm lovin' it. Had some PC connectivity issues, but fixed it by manually installing driver.
