    i got my s4 yesterday after my thunderbolt died and i didnt have a phone for like 3 days but it was a royal pain in the ass , i went to best buy and tried to get it there but for some reason i was not able as they didnt see my upgrade eligibility so the sales dude and i were on the phone with verizon , the phone rep was totally useless telling me that we can send you the phone even though p repeatedly told her i need the phone right away/ I ended up Having to go to the verizon store and having to get it there instead something that should of took me like 20 min took like an hour and a half this is the first time ive every really been pissed with verizon as they usually treat me good seeing as ive been with them for 7yrs

    Got mine last Sat. at Best Buy. Moved up from the Bionic also. First impressions: Light, thin...did I say light? The screen is awesome, the speed smokes the bionic (I loved the bionic) and it seems todo everything I need and then some.The phone works! Bionic was a good mini computer but a lousy phone IMO, seems the S4 call quality is very good. Camera, wow cool. I don't feel it's quite as good as the IP4S but it's worlds better than the Bionic and the little phone options actually work.

    About me: Driod (original) --> Bionic ---> S4

    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
