    Since you have it in hand, I'm curious on your thoughts. After having (only one each BTW) an OG Droid, DX that I bought used of eBay, and release day Bionic, I'm seriously looking at leaving the Motorola family and moving up to the S4. Will purchase outright to maintain unlimited, and I'm interested in some first party thoughts.

    Thanks....

    The early upgrade termination only applies to contracts ending in January of 2014 or later, as far as I've seen everywhere. Anyone with a contract expiration date prior to that is still covered for one more early upgrade. I thought mine was the 13th, but it's actually the 7th, I just checked. My contract ends September 7th, 2013. According to my online account, I'm eligible to upgrade on May 7th, 2013. To confirm, I also checked my dad's line, which was opened in September of last year, and thus, would not be eligible for an early upgrade. His contract end date and upgrade date match - September 27th, 2014.

    My only concern is whether or not they'll allow me to transfer that early upgrade, which, I suppose is probably a gray area, understandably so. Since I'm not in a massive rush, I'll probably just wait and place a pre-order when I'm up on the 7th, rather than mess with transfers, even if it means waiting a little while longer for the phone.

    I love the phone. It is snappy, sleek, and sexy. I hated the old Sammy phones, as they had the Samsung chipset which caused poor quality on LTE, etc., but the S4 has the Snapdragon chipset, so that issue is all but dead. I have never been a fan of the Samsung UI, but I am pretty OK with this due to its new features, the layout, and totality of the phone.

    I started with a Bionic as well, it was my first LTE device. I loved it as well, but I have zero problems with this. The 13 MP camera is amazing, and it has a super high-end sensor. I would recommend it.

    Thanks Mandy. Sounds like game, set, and match for me. I've messed around with a few S3s and Note IIs so Touchwiz won't be that big of an issue. I haven't rooted any device to this point, haven't updated any app that I don't use, and really don't notice the bloatware. Kinda like grass and trees for me. I know they're there, but they just blend into the background, until someone points out something specific.

    Looks like I'll enjoy this device.:icon_ lala:

    With apps like GoLauncher, TSF Shell, Nova, SPB etc etc UI should really be of no concern at this point. Just sayin to potential buyers, if you don't like it, you can change it pretty easily these days.

    Was time for me to make the switch. Have always owned black phones so whoever said "Once you go black you never go back" is wrong. :rofl3:
